Why should he leave the panel? Thereís some generation of snowflakes on here. He did nothing the last day to keep his place, heís a talented lad but he has no devine right to named in the starting 15. This is knock out football and you canít be picking lads just incase they have a hissy fit and walk off the panel - anyway people are doing Ronan a disservice  to say he is even that type of character, he might just have a little more resilience than people are giving him credit for. I like the starting 15. Weíve added a bit of physicality and itís good to see Ritchie back. Hopefully Paudie can make the most of his chance, heís been on the panel long enough now and has all the physical attributes to be a decent midfielder.

Great post BH. In Dublin/ Kerry/ Mayo etc if a player wasn't starting after not playing well the last day there wouldn't be a word about him leaving the panel. And if Ruairi Sludden is needed in the second half of the game on Saturday he should come on, regardless of whether it might upset some of the lads on the bench. Some Tyrone 'supporters' (if you can call them that) seem to want to keep the team in a perpetual state of crisis but I suppose the only way to change this is to win games.

As other posters have said it would be very short sighted for anyone to drop off the panel at this stage if Tyrone win on Saturday. 2008 and 2015 are two prime examples of when Tyrone were knocked out in the first round of Ulster and there was panic stations within the county and talk of wanting Harte out. These years show that all it takes is a win or two to get morale up and get a bit of momentum again. Meath is a great opportunity to start this off this weekend. Tir Eoghain Abu!

Tyrone worked for couple of hours last saturday hitting long kickouts to the left side of field and then launching long diagonal balls into square. Predicting a change in style this weekend.

Will be surprised if RON is on the bus home..........

Ronan O'Neill is a class player but he's probably more suited to being a playmaker. Would he not be worth trying at centre half forward dictating the play?

In the modern game Ronan O'Neill would be a complete passenger at centre forward as he is too slow. Every team would simply put an athletic defender on him and get them to press forward, keep him on the back foot and he wouldn't be able to get back up the pitch.

Canavan the next man to come to Mickey's aid and dismiss Sean Cavanagh's comments

Tyrone manager Paul Devlin has made two changes to his team for tonight's clash with Armagh in the Ulster U20FC semi-final at the Athletic Grounds.

The changes come in the form of Connal Grimes, who slots in at corner back for Antoin Fox, and Brian Kennedy, who takes his place at midfield for Tom Loughran.

Tyrone are fresh off the back of a brilliant display in the last round with a 0-17 to 2-8 victory over Monaghan while Armagh comfortably defeated Fermanagh by  2-14 to 0-10 in Enniskillen.

Throw-in in Armagh is at 8pm.

Tyrone (Ulster U20FC v Armagh): Benny Gallen; Connal Grimes, Conor Quinn, Conor Shields; Mark Kearney, Ryan McCusker, Cahir Goodwin; Rory Gormley, Brian Kennedy; Matthew Murnaghan Emmett McNabb, Ryan Gray; James Garrity, Matthew McGleenan, Paul Donaghy.

Subs: Lorcan Quinn, Tom Loughran, Peadar Mullan, Dalaigh Jones, Daniel Kerr, Tiarnan Drayne, Tomas Carney, Jude Campbell, Peter Og McCartan.

"If" true, its a good job you didnt put it out there on a social platform for others to pick up on.......... Oh wait.................

Unlikely Meath management pay any heed to tactical comments on GAA Board. Last day we learnt on the board that Colm Cavanagh and Conor McManus were out injured  ::)

Has Richie ever played FF for Trillick before?

Ronan O'Neill sure is a dilemma as you know he's got the skills and the brain but at county level he can be exposed for his lack of pace and so getting the ball into his hands is the problem.
He's the sort of guy who could win you a game or play a game winning pass for a goal but he could also lose every ball kicked into him and put you back under pressure.
I would imagine if he played in the 90s or early 00s he would have been a brilliant player with no blanket defences and players like SoN, Mugsy and Canavan making great runs for him to ping balls into.

However, there are loads of good players who are struggling to breathe under the thick blankets and so you would imagine he would better against the Div 2, 3 and 4 teams of this world. Oh sorry maybe not Fermanagh.  :o

U20s game gone to extra extra time. Sounds like an incident packed game with 4 red cards.

Edit: Armagh won 2-22 to 0-24. Unlucky lads.

O'neill IMO has been shafted for the past 3 years. He's a finisher. Look at the goal chances we've cocked up in big games in recent years. Wrong decisions. Yes he missed that pen in the last league game, that's another question, who's gonna get the nod for pens, Harte has lost his mojo big time...dark times. We need onion sack predators on the sod. Won't surprise me if O'Neill walks. Not even close to a starting spot...Bring on defenders and move utility players into half forward...f**k off

Despite the result tonight provided great entertainment. As good a £9 I ever spent. Quality wasnít great but nobody could question determination. The Armagh manager will be in trouble after striking our boys in the melee.
Living the dream!!!

Who is the Armagh manager?
