That was a decent display by the end.

Tyrone did become somewhat complacent around 20 mins such was the ease of their lead. Down really should have gone in ahead but that miss when 1-on-1 was crucial. I was glad to see Morgan tell the lad how to score the next time.

Second half was so predictable. Down just became ragged against the Tyrone juggernaut and in reality Tyrone could have scored 5 goals and 77 points.

What is this bounce Johnston does? It's like a work of art. Quare skulduggery by Down throughout though. A lot of mouthing and patting on heads. Nothing worse than patting on heads.

I was glad to see Down ones have a good day out though and some even managed to beat the traffic going home. Down women aren't as good looking as they used to be. A lot have put weight on.

Almost bit on that point until I realised it was a carefully designed rouse to elecit that exact reaction.

I posted at half time about the scummy acts some down players were at.

Down offered nothing more than I expected today.


Tyrone offered nothing more than i expected today-Football wise totally superior yet still let themselves down big time with Sean Cavanagh's non-stop whinging/diving and Niall Morgan's nonsense

So it reduces to the actions of TWO individuals, and do you really believe that everything happens in a vacuum?

What type of vacuum are you talking about?

Did you see Mc Kernan's cowardly actions on Cavanagh, or were you conveniently blind to them?

No I didn't, please fill me in. What I do know is that Cavanagh is one of the most dishonest players in the game and was running about telling tales to the officials like a young infant.

Lol.  Big Sean and Tyrone have obviously hurt you over the years!  You wouldn't be a bitter apple by any chance??  ;D

jeez that Ronan O'Neill lad is an awful p***k. Very very good footballer but you couldn't like him if ya reared him. I'd say his biggest problem is he knows how good he is

Great win the day, fair play to the players and Harte and co, thats how I like it... pulling up early, feck this drama carry on.

Some great scores taken in the first quarter but then got slack and it gave down impetus. Blew them apart in the third quarter and even by the time the goals came it was all academic.

Hampsey has been a bit of a revelation this year, two great performances and was really commanding from HB. Conall McCann impressed too, lot of energy, hilarious how the two Down lads managed to knock each other down and keep Connall up to put Cavanagh thru in the first half, a great example of conservation of momentum.

The squad is looking strong too with McClure, Brennan, and RON great goals.... he is our goal man probably part of reason he doesnt get on as he is a bit of a glory hunter not a percentage guy.

Was glad to see the match celebrated in the manner an Ulster title deserves especially by the players.

Bigger tests to come but we celebrate another Ulster for now

Ref was a farce as expected, he's quite probably the worst referee since we decided that to offer Sludden's services on the rest of country

What is deal with Down having their freetaker in the half back line? Didnt Carr and Mason also play in defence?

watched game back and saw Morgan roaring at OHanlon after the missed goal chance. Is that what people are giving out about??
Down players were at this and worse the whole game  ::)

Big SC took some abuse throughout. The yellow card he got was a joke.

RON is a superb talent but he simply doesn't work hard enough to start. Impact sub is his role for the foreseeable future.
Nice to see Lee get a run out.

A good day at the office

That's a poor ref, he at least shouldn't about an Ulster pairing if refereeing at all.

No need for it to be fair. He would be better cutting that sh1te out and focusing on the game. Kickouts weren't as good as the Donegal game but I suppose that was because Down were more competitive than Donegal. Some great examples of fielding from Cavanagh's, and McClure when he came on. The mark has definitely improved this aspect of the game.

Watched the game on TV as I couldn't make it to the game.

Tyrone looked to play in 4th gear for the entire match some great performances all the same. Hampsey has been find of the season so far and I thought McClure was outstanding when introduced. Could McGearys place now be in doubt after getting the black card? (stupid rule that needs to go). McCann could go wing forward with McClure starting in the middle.

Interesting to hear a lot of positives about RONeill in past comments however he's failed to deliver for Tyrone at this level and whilst it was good to see him get two goals - I think the game was over at this stage. Two great finishes all the same.

Didn't like what Morgan was up to either after the goal chance - no need!

What did everyone else think of Sean Cavanaghs performance - I thought he was poor yesterday although looked like he was getting special treatment. Good to see the diddy nip making a comeback haven't seen one since I was at school (those dirty Down boys). Did anyone notice the reaction of the tyrone players when Cavanagh fisted the ball over the bar in the first half when there was an easy goal on? We need to be more ruthless and play as a team if we are to make an impact against the top 2.

Firsty the facts.
0.22 v Derry
1.21 v Donegal
2.17 v Down
Not bad scoring for a team who are meant to be so defensive and put so much effort into stopping the other teams from scoring.


As many have said it must be the easiest won Ulster ever and we're still left wondering is it because everyone else have fallen back or have Tyrone moved on to another level. It seemed that Tyrone came out in the second half and moved up another gear. They stopped messing about with silly balls into the FF line but went back to their running game and taking scores from distance when the chance eventually arrived.

McQuillan seemed to do reasonably well in the first half but seem to lose the run of himself in the second half, making some very strange decisions.

Was a very different game to the Donegal match and I think this mainly stemmed from Down sitting back a lot more to contain us. You could see at times they were almost scared to run into our defence, knowing that a turnover and quick break will be the most likely outcome.

For me it's great to see the team playing so well without big Sean and Peter Harte maybe not as influential as usual. Who would have thought a year or two ago that Hampsey would have got two man of the match awards in a row and have scored 5 points in his last two games. Was glad Mickey had the balls to take Sean off whereas before sentiment would have influenced him.
Also good to see Mattie back playing well and more importantly kicking 3 points again.
McClure had a huge game in my eyes when he came in and for the first time in maybe 20 years we are strong at midfield again. With the new mark rule and a keeper who is accurate and fast with his restarts then we are no longer under pressure to always kick it short.

Yeah disappointing to see Morgan resort to that sort of reaction but he seems to be highly pumped during games when he makes a good save I notice as well. I thought he had settled the head a bit the last year or so.

So it will be Kildare or Armagh in the next round then in 3 weeks time. I wonder will we score 20+ points again. Most pundits seem to be ranking us 3rd again like last year which no doubt will greatly motivate Mayo and Kildare/Armagh. 

Yeah agree WT4E that Sean could have squared that ball for a goal. Not the first time he's done that lately.
Thought Conal McCann had another quiet enough game and with McClure looking much more up for it you would imagine he'll be in with a good chance to start the next day.

That's three games in a row that Sean has been poor. Perhaps that's being unfair as his standards are so high. Could McClure come on in his place and leave Sean for the last 25? I also think he's taking far too much out of the ball and taking the wrong option. As WT4E mentions, he passed up a certain goal chance by fisting a point when there were at least two men with open nets in front of them. This happened against Donegal too. These all need to be ruthlessly taken if we're to challenge the top two.

Btw, completely disgusted by Morgan's reaction towards O'Hanlon. Wtf is that all about? It's not as if he was getting himself and he wanted some revenge. In saying that there were a squad of Down men going flat out at the goading and for all Sean Cavanagh's theatrics he does ship serious flak.

No need for Morgan to do it. Agree. But its a bit rich for any Down fan to criticise him considering what went on out the field. That lad OHanlon is fond of the dark arts himself so whats good for the goose.

I would be more concerned with Morgan starting that nonsense again and it taking away from his own game. He cant seem to mix it. Needs complete focus on us rather than worry about mouthing or goading at the other teams players.

SC is the great conundrum now. He normally occupies 2 of the other teams better defenders when he is on leaving space for other players to attack.
He isnt playing well and is not clinical enough lately. Seems he is more interested in 0-1 beside his name than a goal for the team.

Tough one but in MH we trust

Tyrone play to Hartes template which is well known at this stage.  I would just like to see our forwards be more direct from time to time, gather the ball, turn and run to for goal.  This is our biggest weakness.  Also, when we get goal chances we squander a lot of them.  There was a sitter missed again yesterday by Hampsey I think, he just seemed so casual in his approach to the opportunity.

I'd rather say players try to place it rather than what most do and that is blast it straight at the keeper as we saw in the Donegal game and Kildare did yesterday straight at Cluxton.

Not everyone can do this I suppose.

Nice to know Ronan has a lot to offer, even if it is as a sub coming on near the end. I was surprised Lee Brennan didn't try for a goal in his chance near the end.

Aidan McCrory must run some distances each match he plays. The amount of times you see him up near our attacking goal is amazing.
