There seems to be a vibe from the Tyrone players about feeling a lot freer this year. They're careful not to slight Mickey but it's fairly obvious this year's management decision was spot on by Tyrone. Mickey did 90% of the spadework though. It was good to see that he was in Armagh on Sat night.

For sure

While 5 goal wins are nice to watch a league title is built on a solid defence first and foremost

Got both vaccines but won't be in a rush to get a booster - know a few people who haven't been right since getting them

Presumably quite a few people you know would not have been anything near right in the first place so zero difference?

At least 10k extra got in so likely by slipping a bribe on the gate. Are Dublin gaa "volunteers" still milking it? Do bears sh1t in the woods?

I think that only in time will we be able to properly judge the merit of this Tyrone side. At the start of the season I would have placed Donegal ahead of them and had them down in 5th nationally. The reality is that Donegal have regressed in the last 2 seasons but they have enough good players to reverse the slide. I would have doubts about their mental fortitude though as they seem to lack leaders outside of Murphy. Armagh would need to find a few decent defenders to get to the next level and win an ulster championship whilst Monaghan will still be hard to beat but I can’t see much scope for improvement with a few of their key players getting on in years. Derry may be a few years away from winning at provincial level but Gallagher has got them organised and they are on an upward curve.
It's a poor era for management.

Of the top five contenders, Dublin, Donegal and Kerry all have average managers. Only Kerry look like they might make a change for next year. If they get a good manager in charge, it's lights out for everybody else.

Tyrone and Mayo currently have the two best management teams of the top contenders. Horan is a very good manager on the whole but he has blind spots, and they were exposed yesterday.

The jury is still out on how good Kerry are, I think some revisionism might be needed there also. Yes they have 2 Clifford’s and O’Shea who are excellent but on the whole they have not lived up to the hype. If Tyrone played them again I would fancy Tyrone to beat them. But time will tell, it will all become much clearer with a full playing season next year.
Kerry were called soft in the 2001-2003 period. They went on to reach the next six finals in a row and won four of them. I could see them doing similar over the coming years if they get the right man in charge.

I just don’t get on what basis you can make that assertion. I do think Dublin have a lean period ahead for the next few years and there will be opportunities for other counties one of which will be Kerry. But a few hammerings dishes out in the League is not a pre requisite for stating that a team will win multiple All Ireland’s. That 2001-03 Kerry side was definitely not soft, they had plenty of dogs of war and the current Kerry side is currently well short of that team.

Aye but they only have to play a couple of hurling teams to get to the AI semis...

The intensity they brought to the kerry game was good but just as much about Kerry's lack of intensity (donnie buckley replaced by mountain climber ) .  Mayo players wont just match Tyrone intensity they'll murder them . Some of these bucks like o hora and mullin are off the scale in this department , you'll see .

You have form larryin89 in such pre-final braggadocio where Mayo's involved, however, you are equally well versed in chomping on those words in the rather inevitable aftermath.  :P

Not this time , we will hammer Tyrone out the gate on sat

While all dressed in your Baywatch gear like AOS?  ;D

Just checking that all Armagh people with tickets have passed them on their Tyrone neighbours? If not, please make sure this is done no later than 12pm tomorrow to allow them time to plan their big day out.
Is mise le meas.

Was up in North mayo today, ballina stephites, knockmore and crossmolina all raffling 2 tickets by selling lines to all and sundry. Personally I think that's real shitty on their members, taking tickets away from members. Half the county going around moaning about no tickets and clubs doing that?
If a county is in the final the clubs will get a lot of tickets. This approach using 2 tickets as a fundraiser is fine provided its agreed beforehand and the remaining tickets are balloted fairly. What's not fine is where the chairman or committee decide there will be a raffle, but nevertheless guarantee themselves tickets from the remainer.

Chairpersons, committee members, mentors, groundskeepers and other club volunteers should absolutely 100% get sorted first for tickets as opposed to Mickey and Mary who drop of Johnny and never lift a finger around the club. There can be no argument on this. The amount of work it takes to run a GAA club nowadays is incredible. These people give up their time free of charge and you begrudge them a few AIF tickets when the county eventually reaches a final?

Virtually every Mickey, Mary, Marley and Muckshifter can claim to have been a volunteer at some point...

Can any Armagh people holding 10 year tickets pass them over immediately to their Tyrone neighbours as you know you won't see Croker this decade!  ;D

And if we ever needed reminding as to why everyone outside of Tyrone are supporting Mayo :-)

Yep that's bad craic and that's why I always prefer Armagh over Tyrone.  Any ticket ?

You prefer Armagh cos they never win anything. The same way as everyone likes wee Leitrim.
