How was Sean v Dublin, apart from the penalty ? Can't rememember

I thought he did quite well, moved in and out from MF to FF and caused some problems in the square and never wasted a ball out the field either.
yes sean caused alot of problems in the square, our square, esp for the penalty.

Are D Hughes, Owen Duffy and Walshe ready again after going off injured last sunday - would make a serious difference if those 3 are out

Monaghan still beat Kerry without those 3 key players for the most part of the game.
But if a fresh Tyrone don't manage to beat an exhausted and injury ravaged  Monaghan, it's safe to say their season is pretty much over.
Tyrone players will find themselves having to hitch a ride to future games.

Id be amazed if this games goes ahead. Gives incessant rain today and tomorrow. Wonder will those involved learn from last weeks debacle. Doubt it

What are the realistic options if Omagh is unplayable? Another postponement or moving the game to another venue? Presumably any other venue would be outside Tyrone?

Inishkeen anyone?

I see in today's Irish News they confirm what a few of us were asking last Sunday as to why a local official couldn't visit the Omagh pitch and make a call on it. Most people thought the blame rested with Tyrone but in fact it rested with David Gough the Meath (or is he a Dub now?) referee.

Surely with today's technology photos or a video from the local referee should be enough to inform the match referee to call the game off without having to come view it himself.


From the Irish news
A local Tyrone referee inspected the pitch at 10.30am. Knowing the drainage issues at Healy Park that early assessment should have been good enough for the GAA rather than waiting until 1.22pm for official ref David Gough to confirm what we already knew.
Given the rain and pitch surface, David Gough should really have been in Omagh much earlier. Either that or protocol has to change and allow a local referee to call the game off in the morning to save supporters a lot of hassle and expense.

If it's rained off again tomorrow evening, can they switch it to 2:30pm on Sunday elsewhere within the county?

Somewhere like Aughabrack should do the trick, pay those Monaghan hoors back for Iniskeen ;)

Surely we have a contingency plan in place for say 2pm tomorrow? Field inspected, not playable then move venue?

 Contingency plan? Tyronies couldn't organise a piss up in a brewery.

Iniskeen (never a contingency),   a league standard grounds ...... with drainage,  in a beautiful location, far enough away from the whiff of Armagh diesel.

Clones, Blayney and Inniskeen are the 3 bona fide venues. Once (against Cork?)  the last minute contingency was perhaps Scotstown.
Can you Tyronies not get your act together in time?

I see Padraig Hughes is referee for this weeks game. At least he doesn't live so far away.
Apparently he called in to the Omagh ground last week on his way to Ballybofey and he did take some photos and sent them to HQ but they were very keen to get the game played anyway and they wanted to wait for David Gough to see it a few hour later and then make the call.

Plan B is to move it to Carrickmore or Edendork for Sunday instead. Question is when will they make that call.

Floodlights, or rather, lack thereof?
