Shitty news to read, McBride gone now as well. Makes me wonder if itís worth following our fortunes over the next few years at all. Doesnít bode well for the Leinster championship for the next few years whatever slim chance we had we wonít be doing much as a football farm for the AFL.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Meath would have about the same level of decorum as AFLso its prob a match made in heaven

From what I seen of him he had huge potential for Meath seniors. Who knows if it doesn't work out for him he might return. How long is Conor Nash out there now? 6ft 6 mobile lad would have been a serious addition to Meath.

Yeah hopefully heíll be back with us and Nash but itís looking like Nash will be there a while longer, he got a contract extension I think. He was off the main team for a while but worked his way back in by the end of the season. If Nash does return I doubt Leinster Rugby would still be interested in him but I suppose itís not impossible either.

Cathal Mcshane has a singed a 2 year deal with Brisbane Lions, according to John Fogarty.  He would be around 24/25? ...they don't generally look at that age for a rookie deal

Pretty old to head over and that age and adjust to a new game. Needless to say would be a massive loss for Tyrone. Not to mention his club.

Suppose it's no gamble. What's 2 years? He's probably weighed up Tyrones chances and seen close up how far off the mark they are. If it does not work out, he'll still be in good shape and can go back to where he left off!

Good for you for taking offence on his behalf.

Especially as we all know how his teams teams have conducted themselves with nothing but class all down the years.

Most relevant point though  is why any forward would want to play for a team like Tyrone? If you're McShane you're left in your own up front and the rest of the "forwards" are selected more for their fitness and stamina levels rather than their shooting/finishing skills.

Tyrone weren't particularly defensive at all last year. Their whole game plan was built around kicking the ball into McShane and Donnelly. If they didn't enjoy that system I'd be amazed.

Tyrone were slightly more attacking last year in that they left 2 up front rather than one. Their lack of conviction up front was one of the main reasons Kerry were able to come  back in the 2nd half and beat Tyrone.

McShane was Tyrone's only scoring forward last season and they weren't good enough to beat any of the top sides with him in the team. Without him Tyrone will be doing well to make the super 8s this year.
