There's every chance that team will start. Pity about Conor Meyler (broken bone in foot or leg), but we have the replacements.

For me Burns is under the most pressure to keep his place. 2 consecutive bad days out. Meyler being ruled out and the lack of viable alternatives probably aids his cause.
The fire has gone out in him.

Nothing like a Semi in Croke against Monaghan to bring it roaring back into life!  ;)

I'd heard a few days after the Dublin game that Burns had picked up an injury which would explain a couple of performances where he hasn't quite been at himself. McAliskey is the one under pressure for my money but his performance against Monaghan in Omagh was his best this year so I'd say Harte will be hopeful that'll bring him back to life.

Peter Harte was given very 'close attention' in Omagh and the referee and linesmen choose to ignore it. I'd hope they'll not be as generous with Monaghan on Sunday. However given our experience with referees this year, I'll not hold my breath.

you can be sure that rte/gaa will have had a very hard word in the refs ear to make sure tyrone do not make the final at all cost.

See McEntee putting pressure on the ref to not give us frees in today's Irish News. 2005 still hurting.

2005 will always hurt. More than 2003

It must have been the ref who made big Joe sub McGeany.

It's a bit of a take from Pierce Turner's Now on Heaven album but Oliver's on tune with this effort
...

Yet more crap from you sir: it's Now is Heaven from Pierce. D'oh!

And all we need to know that you're pinning your hopes on the invocation of ghosts past! :D

May as well have released 15 random names. That team will never start.

Really? I’d be very surprised if it isn’t the team that starts.

I'd expect Lee Brennan to start.

Subs bench starting to look thin with Meyler and McCarron out and Rory Brennan having to start. Mc Nulty back in the 26 which will be a boost for him I suppose. Be shit to be in a county panel and not get to tog on match day.

Just listened to Wooly’s podcast there saying Myler would be picking up Karl O’Connell  ::)
Read the board Wolly!

Your original post suggested that the team named was nothing like the team that would start.
You expect one change....

He has only played 25 minutes of competitive football since early May. I'd be shocked if he starts, would be some risk.

Interesting reading the old thread for the first game.

Fired up Youtube last night to get a look at the game and forgot about the absence of TV coverage. Couldn't even find highlights.

Just had a look through and spotted this gem, O'Neill. Did you get any money on that?

As expected.

I can see Monaghan reaching the final this year if they avoid a Dub semi.
