The Armagh opposition to Tyrone I can understand I think that its roughly at an equal level although probably more lobsided these days since Armagh are so shite

But the Derry hatred of Tyrone is ridiculous. Never heard a good Derry word about Tyrone... ever... not even in the 90s, this didnt start in 03 or even 95 its there as long as I remember, so Lenny harping on about Mickey Harte and puke football is nonsense, they hated us with equal enthusiasm when we were naive, light and skillful and took kicking from gulpins. Indeed they openly rejoiced in '96

I'm guessing the root cause is that anti Tyrone gene has now been interbred so thoroughly in their populace that its influence on the psyche has exploded exponentially.

I was at the 95 and 86 finals supporting Tyrone as were many Derry people. I donít dislike Tyrone, just Harteís cynical cheating version of Tyrone. Just a pity Eugene Mckenna didnít get another year in 03 because Iím certain heíd have won Sam also.

Lenny cut the crap. The only Derry people who supported Tyrone were the Ballinderry men who supported Tyrone and not Derry like Big Enda in 95 wearing his Tyrone top after the minor final. As for the rest of ye, uz hated us.

And by sheer astronomical coincidence, Harte was the first manager we had who allowed us to get our grubby mitts on Sam, but no, you preferred the plucky little neighbour, who was always close, but never quite close enough.

And sorry, don't buy your Eugene-as-an-all-Ireland-winner-would-be-all-sweetness-and-light!  ;)

Which is fair enough. I think Iíd want Monaghan to win against probably any other county in Ireland on Sunday, itís great to see a different county reach an AI final and Iíd say most neutrals feel a similar way. What is entertaining though is the Derry and Armagh lads jumping on the Monaghan bandwagon pretending itís a crusade against cynical football, rather than owning up to their bitterness.

Never liked Tyrone. Never have, never will.

Donít like Monaghan either. Never have, never will.

In fact, donít really like anyone outside the Oakleaf.

Heading down on Sunday though.

That may be true alright but in order to take a real interest in games, you need to decide who the worst bastids are and support the other team like you were weaned off the tit there.

Can't believe the shite being talked any more or the credit we give these wums.
Of course smaller counties who have suffered at our hands for years will despise us and let's face it Tyrone and usually AN Other have been getting to AI quarters now pretty regularly for the past 17 years.

Can we not just ignore their biased crap and talk about the game. I was out last night in D7 area with my Tyrone jersey on and the banter was great. People from various counties approached me and gave me their opinions. Most neutrals thought we would win on Sunday and maybe even give the Dubs a fair aul scare in the final.
I was a lot more cautious about Monaghan.
One Monaghan lad said he was very confident and that this team no longer fear Tyrone and are more used to big days in Croker now than ever before.
I said usually at this stage most teams are physically at the same level and it comes down to hunger and how willing you are to fight for it.
My concern is that if it is a tight game will our free taking be our downfall again.
How many times in the last 5 years has wides or short shots cost us defeats against Mayo or Kerry.
I think Monaghan by 2.

Like Iíve said before, if Monaghan were playing anyone other than Tyrone Iíd be cheering them on but leaving all the sentimental nonsense to one side, in my view, thereís no evidence to suggest this Monaghan team are anything other than the same old version that we have seen over the past few years. A lot of store is being put on the fact that Monaghan beat Tyrone earlier in the season, which is fair enough but if we are going to factor early season form in here then we have to mention that after that good performance Monaghan bottled it against a very poor Fermanagh team in an awful performance. They bottled it again when a place in the semi final was in their grasp v Kerry and too much emphasis has been put on a victory over a Galway team who already had one eye on the following weekends semi final. There is no trajectory of progress as far as I can see, they have performed well at times with the usual bottle jobs thrown in. There is nothing different coming from this Monaghan team and throw in the psychological defeats to Tyrone in similar circumstances in the past and how Tyrone have improved as the year has progressed them I can only see one result. Tyrone by 5 or 6.
