There'll be no wet sod around this weekend. A great dry spell coming up over the weekend and into next week. It'll be very cold this weekend so don't forget the thermals.

Not one of Mickey's finest moments, ridiculous view on that goal.

It'd be just like Mayo to pull out a top notch performance and sink the Dubs. I'm going for Mayo by 3 points.

I was pretty sceptical of this rule before it's introduction but now feel it's been one of the best tweaks to our games in a long time.

Mickey Harte hits out at the media after Tyrone's McKenna Cup defeat

He was easily wound up with what appeared to be a reasonable question.

Iíd imagine it was the frequency of the same question that was the straw that broke the camels back. Weíll never go all out attack but we are playing with slightly more adventure, for example, weíve been playing with a two man FF line for the majority of games this year and are using the early kick pass into the FF more frequently.

I know I shouldnít take the bait but what do you suggest as a tactical alternative, STG? As far as I can see youíre a problem picker. Easy place to be picking holes, harder job to offer constructive alternatives.

Iím not a Harte apologist, but to be fair to him we havenít been playing a one man FF line this year. Thereís been at least two men up for the vast majority of the time with more direct passing going in compared to last year.

I thought one of Sidebottomís earlier questions was on the ball, in that it appeared we were attempting to create much more goal chances. The last phase broke down but I think with a more confident FF line taking this approach over the coming months will make a difference in the summer.

It also annoys me when people give out about our tactics, itís not pleasing on the eye but wake up and smell the coffee. Look at the three teams that we canít eclipse when it matters. Their FF lines allow them to play in a way we canít. We donít have two to three men who are top notch ball winners alongside top class finishers. Kerry, Dublin and Mayo do. They also have expert 90% (or close to) free takers that keep the score board ticking over. We donít (yet).

Mayo have the least potent forward unit out of the top 3 but what they have is 7 top notch defenders who can go man to man no problem and do damage going forward too. Imagine if we had Higgins, Boyle, Keegan etc in defence. Do you still think Harte would play the system we play? No fecking chance. He is implementing what he thinks is our best strategy. Last year it was cruelly exposed and all we can really expect this year is a slight change in balance away from 1-13-1. We are seeing that slight amendment this year and those who think weíll change radically need their heads examined.

Just saw that there now, I have never seen Mickey that rattled before. I hope BBC NI sent along extra drawers with their wardrobe dept as Sidebottom shite the togs there!!

meaningless game i know so all the more reason to try more kickpassing and attacking gameplan.same boring shite.

But the gameplan is different, there is definitely more presence in the FF line and more ball is being kicked in. Itís madness to aspire to replicate the likes of Dublin and Kerry in this regard as we simply donít have the players to pull it off. Iím happy enough with how the gameplan is progressing.

Red zone, agree re Petey Harte. Heís been extremely subdued this season and hasnít got going at all.

Ronanís free taking was much better after the first miss. Still not doing enough from open play though. Ronan McHugh took on some crazy efforts as well when recycling was the correct option.

Some finish by McElhinney for his goal, btw.

By f**k youíre one seriously moaning aul bollix. Do you ever just think why you bother watching if itís such a chore?

That was a meaningless game that allowed some of the fringe element to get a run out. The only thing I took from it was K McGeary was in fine form and McHugh played himself out of NFL time by wasting possession and taking on some crazy efforts.

Done and dusted and onwards to Castleblayney.

Great coverage. The BBC is giving better service to the GAA than RTE.
Stop you will upset Easytiger with comments like that.

Weíve Armagh co. Board to thank for the coverage not really the bbc. If this match was in Omagh or newry the cameras wouldnít be there for it. Itís the Armagh tv gig which weíve to thank for the coverage.

Itís a deadly set up to be fair to them. Well done Donegal, the game in Healy park in two weeks will be a tasty affair, as always.

Players like Ronan OíNeill and Ronan McHugh need to be doing much more to put pressure on for a starting spot in NFL. Not good enough tonight. McCurry doimg much better.

We have to be happy with two points there. That Kildare team were fighting for their lives to stay in Division 1 and we matched their hunger and more. Two points were key and we got that.

McKenna cup next weekend then hopefully two more points from our game in Castleblayney.

You're right trillickman, our shooting is horrendous recently. There can't be too many teams across all divisions with our wide totals.
