BemnyHarp, agree on your McCurry point. That was an excellent move started off by tigerish defending and overturning the ball. The key thing was the type of long ball played into FF line. It was diagonal and low trajectory giving the forwards a much better chance at the end. I noticed that the long ball into FF line improved slightly yesterday but still a lot of improvement required to increase the return from it. There was still the odd long, floated punt into Bradley etc that leaves it nearly impossible to gather and, secondly, allows the defender to clean them from behind.

Fair points and that's why I feel we missed Sludden so much in the second half as he's a great man to put on the burners breaking through the 45 screen and setting up higher percentage shooting opportunities. Petey Harte having a quiet game and Mattie Donnelly being off form didn't help in this regard either.

I am caught between two minds:

1. The regularity of days were we hit 12+ wides doesn't look like being solved at all and we'll never make an impression on the AI stage until that is fixed.

2. We are creating loads and loads of opportunities to score but aren't taking them. Some day we'll click against a top 3 side and blow them away.

Btw, Sludden was sorely missed in the 2nd half, he was the exact type of player we needed to take game by scruff of the neck. Petey Barre was poor (compared to his very high standards) and, worryingly, Matty Donnelly's form is all over the place.

Dire sure shite from us, a half decent u-14 team would have had a better conversion rate in the 2nd half. Absolutely scandalous that Colm and Peter didn't hit the target, 1even fecking making it over crossbar height, in that last quarter. This percentage shooting and constant recycling of half chances is starting to grate. How the f**k we managed to lose that game I will never know. At least McLaughlin had the balls to go for the winner and the technique to clear the bar!!

Jinxy, thought the Cillian incident at the end was strange. He appeared to be completely spaced out but the blow struck him in the neck. Can you get concussed in that way. Btw, RoN was a stupid numpty for that lunge, totally pointless and he deserves a ban as well as Mattie for the oetukent white with AoSe at the end

Nothing dirty in terms of reckless sliding tackles, however, there were occasions (Whealen on Allen being the worst) when we led with the elbow going for high balls.

Whilst Taylor's challenge caused horrendous damage, looking back at the replays in not 100% sure that he went in dangerously high with both feet rsised. It was reckless in the extreme but I don't think it was intended to cause injury. Coleman came in at great speed and Taylor's legs appear to scissor grab Coleman's right leg and wasn't overly high. The leg broke on contact when Coleman struck through the ball a moment before Taylor arrived. I still think it was a red every day of the week as players have a duty of care towards their opponents and Taylor went in too reckless. I still believe it wasn't to cause serious injury.

Bale's interview after the game was unreal, had the nerve to say that O'Shea kicked him when he was sliding in to shoot, said it shouldn't even have been yellow. Not a word about Coleman until the interviewer asked him directly on his thoughts.

Agree that Christie was pretty good but surely you can't be serious about McGeady. Had heard before the game that he's been on fire with Preston but tonight in 12 minutes of game time I can count at least three silly silly losses of possession and two total dud crosses. Far far too inconsistent.

Beat wishes to Seamus, horrendous injury. Hopefully comes back fitter and stronger.

Very important game for us at the weekend. Win and we're back on track after the dreadful performance last weekend. Lose and our momentum will take a massive hit.

What's the chances of seeing either Aiden or Seamus O'Se on Sunday? I believe they lined out for their club recently.

Tyrone lost a thirteen game unbeaten run last night, the best in the country behind Dublin. I think it was a case of all sectors of the field having an off day and Donegal hitting a freakishly good purple patch in the first half. The scores they got in the first half against the wind wwere spectacular but sometimes everything you hot goes over (see our first half v Monaghan) whereas other nights everything goes to shite i.e. us last night.

Draw a line under it, learn and move on to next week.
whats this shite about a 13 game unbeaten run? we were beat in august in championship, december in o fiach cup, january, first mc kenna cup game. i make that 7 games unbeaten?

It was a thirteen game unbeaten run in the national league. Referring to Cavan's style of football in the Mayo match highlights your jaundiced view of Tyrone and Harte at the minute. Cavan's play looked good because Mayo's tactics were shite and allowed Cavan a heap of space to play in. If Tyrone were playing in Castlebar on Sunday they would have torn Mayo apart. Just look at the Cavan replay last summer to see how attack minded Tyrone are when the opposition leaves space in their defence.

STG and Team in a million clearly the same person. Thst post on the last page should be deleted, a line crossed.


You continue to slate everything about the county team at the minute yet have offered the square root of f**k all in alternatives. Tyrone are joint top of Division 1 and just after losing a 13 match unbeaten run. What would you consider success? All ireland or bust it seems which is ridiculous, tbh.

Game is live on TG4. Mayo are getting plenty of live coverage this year anyway.

That's good news. The wan game I can t get to.
Mind you it wouldn t be a big loss if it wasn t shown. We're hard watchin this spring - a lot of the time anyway.
No way should Tyrone be losing this one. We're far too dysfunctional at the moment.

All those all Ireland final loses to Kerry have at least taught you how to play the cute hoors! ;)

Fair enough, lads. Mickey clearly sees something in McShane that he really likes and keeps giving him lots of chances to show confidence in him. Hopefully his consistency improves as I think he has great potential for us.

Did you see our attempts at trying to kick the ball in, shocking. Its that long since we have kicked ball it looks as if they don't know how to kick it.

100% agree, the balls we are putting in are all wrong. Check out the Cavan and Mayo match yesterday and the Cavan defence put in some perfect ball into their FF line that yielded great dividends. I do realise that Mayo's tactics and the weather contributed to this but long balls into the FF line need a certain trajectory and angle to increase reward. We have been putting in silly floated balls that result in Mattie et al being smashed from behind and been given no chance at all.

Don't want to go hard on individuals but I don't see the logic in McShane getting so much game time. He got two balls early in the first half and on the first passed straight to a Donegal man and the second he passed long into the Donegal corner back area when there wasn't a Tyrone man within 30 yards. Now I know that every player, bar Petey Harte IMO, had a stinker but Mickey Is giving Cathal serious game time versus other options and he still appears to be too rash in his decision making. I still believe he'll make an excellent player in years to come but at the moment he is not taking his chance. All in my opinion, of course.
