I would have preferred a half back line of Meyler, Burns and K McGeary.
that was the half back line that finished the league strongly. Why did mickey have to tamper with it?

No, it wasn't. The half backline v Kerry included Rory Brennan and Ronan McNabb, in Mayo and v Donegal it was Harte and Meyler...Burns was at 6 in all 3 games.

 ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D
Big tyrone fan STG.. If I was you id concentrate on club football in Augher, and gushing over a clogher man hitting ten points for use.
thanks for the advice asshole.

I think McNabb slows the play down, Rory Brennan hasn't started and finished a Tyrone for some time. Although Burns seemed quiet vs Monaghan he should be given a chance to gain more confidence at No.6.

Burns was quiet? I'd have had him and McAliskey as our best performers on the day.

Seemed quiet- as compared to his performance against Kerry.

Sean would want to wind the neck in at this stage. Fair enough he has a right to voice his opinion on Tyrone matters but he appears to be using  (abusing?) his position to create controversy in order to further his punditry career

If you think his criticism was bad have a look at mulligans views on the match in the irish star. He says starting 3 injured players was criminal. Also critical of tyrone during the league.

Are these former players all just trying to make a name as being a controversial pundit and further their own brand?

According to the mickey lovers on here everyone who says anything negative has an agenda. Not sure what mugsy has to gain out of it.

You're not allowed to say what you think; this is Mickey Harte they're criticising

Mugsy is right. It was foolhardy in the extreme to play players carrying injuries in such an important game and for me it was one of a few factors that influenced the result, but I donít accept that Sean doesnít have an agenda. His comments yesterday and the timing of his comments last week have shown him to be a little bit of a fame hungry self publicist who is doing his best to align himself with RTE and the exposure that brings.
That was never a square ball!!

Big Sean is 100% right. Harte didn't hold back in his book to sell more copies. So why should Sean? He doesn't need Harte nor never needed him. Fair play to him.

Can't win with some people. If he says nothing he's a boring pundit, says something he's a publicity hunter.

Big Sean is only worried about big Sean. Always was and always will be. He was out of line stirring it up the week before a big game. Monaghan were better. We do not have an outstanding forward at this moment in time that can hold his own and hit 5/6 points a game. We are average and have to work hard to win every game. Been that way for 3 or 4 years. You men moving deckchairs donít realise that. Finally to single peter harte out shows how bitter men who want Mickey out think. Wise up. Has been one of the only quality players tribe have. Watched him twice this year in the ACL and the abuse he got in both games was incredible as was the referring in both towards him. Would love to see what OíRourke would do with current squad. But I will not slag the men who are still loyal to the cause. One of the ex tyrone players said after the game it reminded him of the defeat against down where the tyrone supporters destroyed them. He said he has never forgiven the slabbers who shouted abuse that day and patted his back a few months later.

That was all a bit contrived that year about the 'critics'. 2008 when they lost a thriller to Down in a replay in the Marshes. I was there and certainly didn't hear supporters abusing players. Harte was good at creating a siege mentality which gelled the players. As for Sean... it's payback time... Cork semi-final 2009.

Anyone any insight into what actually happened before the Cork semi in 2009?
