Mc curry only scored 1 point when ban Gallagher was on him and he was well tied up. Only when they moved him half back that mc curry prospered. Mc curry yet to do it on the biggest stage

What stage would that be?

I would agree with that assessment, McCurry is undoubtedly a talented player but I also think he is very much a luxury player who has often promised more than he has delivered. Perhaps tomorrow could be the day where he announces himself on the big stage in the wide open spaces as players like him were probably not really afforded the opportunity to shine under a Mickey Harte system. Where did Mark Bradley ever go to, around 3/4 years ago he looked a really bright prospect but was also a player that never really made the breakthrough despite his obvious talent.

Lads, heading to Newcastle (Co Down) for a stag this weekend so can't make match. Any recommendations for a pub to watch it?

Monaghan 1-9 Down 1-7 at half time in the Ulster U20. A good quality game of football.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

We're getting cleaned out around the middle so need to sort out the kickouts, but it was a great spell in the second quarter to edge back into the front. Sean Jones is on fire which helps too.

Tyrone have beaten a 14-man Donegal and Division 4 Cavan.  Their last game before that was against Kerry who scored 6 goals past them.  Monaghan won't score 4 goals on Sunday but they might get two.  They didn't get any the last time they played Tyrone.

Monaghan were desperately open at the back against Armagh and the same against Donegal in the league, conceding 20 points in each. Tyrone won't be as open as Armagh were and therefore Monaghan cannot be allowing them the chances to waltz up the field and score points under zero pressure.  I think they can play more defensive football if the game demands it.

Tyrone are favourites and the pressure is off Monaghan.  There is something about them this year - a bit of the good, the bad, and the ugly! Some great forward play, scoring goals for fun; pulling games out of the fire; playing poorly and still winning and a bit of gamesmanship / cuteness where its needed.  I think they'll do it.

Hard to see how Tyrone are favourites. With Mickey Harte having been in charge so long it was always going to be a challenge for a new management team to come in and implement different ideas and a different style, a challenge even in normal circumstances. As it turned out, Logan and Dooher had months where they couldn't get the panel together then a very short league campaign. Compare that to having a McKenna Cup and standard league campaign.

That kind of situation massively favours more settled sides and Tyrone have looked very much like a team in transition in all of their games. Between that and the injuries to players who they hoped would be key they were vulnerable going into the Cavan game and did well to win so comfortably. They also did well to beat Donegal but ultimately Murphy was central to the victory with his missed penalty and subsequent sending off.

That all sounds pretty negative but Tyrone have reached this final with a lot of questions still about how they want to play and who is going to fill key positions in the spine of the team. McShane hasn't started a match yet, injury has denied Canavan the chance to bed into the playmaking role marked out for him and the management haven't yet worked out best to employ McKenna. Any idea this team could worry Dublin or Kerry looks crazy. With momentum building and a bit of luck they are well capable of beating Monaghan but really the more settled side should win this. Monaghan the clear favourites.
