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.
Can I forgive the fact Mickey Harte fights with RTE, probably. Can I forgive the fact he fights with the county board? probably. Can I forgive the fact he uses the Tyrone managers job as a political platform? probably. Can I forgive the fact he favours his own clubs' players , family an friends? Probably. What I can't forgive is the fact that he has proven too be an illiterate coach on the training field as you have rightly pointed out in the new found long ball tactics. This tactic should have been done or worked on years ago. Calling Mickey Harte a three time All Ireland winning manager is as relevant as calling me a three time All Ireland winning Tyrone supporter! This type of bluff an bluster means nothing if the stuff isn't been done on the training pitch.

That is accurate comment, which begs the question why is Dan Mc Nulty not on that panel, a natural powerfully built big and mobile full forward who can win ball. He wasn't even asked, so that puts that myth to bed, can't figure it out at all

for the 200,000 invested in coaching last year in Tyrone never mind the last 8 years.... i expect more than one game plan that does not work against the top handful of teams when push comes to shove....I was asked today would Mickey Harte be evil enough to split this county to get his own way...we all know the answer to that the next 6 months could be interesting....

The sad things is people in GAA circles across Ireland have shown a real dislike of Tyrone this last number of years. This was no accident. Negativity off the pitch and even more negativity on it, added to that poor attendances at Healy park. It paints a pretty depressing picture. Tyrone need a shot in the arm and to push on. Maybe just maybe we will regain the admiration and respect we gained in the noughties. The question you ask would Mickey be evil enough to split the county? Absolutely he would and Il say that with a straight face.

Mickey has his big powerful full forward sorted. Its his good friend an neighbour and goes by the name Aidan McCrory. Please don't laugh.

i said a long time ago on this thread that mickey harte will leave a real mess behind him when he is eventually got rid of and im pretty sure il be right. lets hope for all our sakes he is gone sooner rather than later so we can start cleaning up the mess quicker. i feel he has already done alot of long term damage to players confidence, our footballing culture and the general tyrone brand. get him out.

Mickey Harte is part of the problem there is an Entourage of stuff around the Top in this County that are the rest of the mess that needs cleaned up....is it a coincidence that when reporting on congress Teamtalks Damian Harvey quoted Tyrone delegate telling the top table on the QT to "do whatever you want on motion 4" Teamtalk mag all off a sudden have reporting rights removed....

now that you mention the 2015 relegation could someone please tell me what happened on that final league game v Kerry. The match were Mickey Harte did not turn up and overlooked his assistant Gavin Devlin(which was strange) to take the team but instead drafted in his old friend Tony Donnelly. What happened Mickey? Was he sick? If so, why did he get out of his sick bed, get dressed go up to kellys inn, pick the team, give the team talk but was still not fit enough to go to Healy park? Very odd. I suppose the narrative will be it was Tony Donnelly relegated Tyrone not Mickey Harte. Unreal.

Just be careful now. I think your veering into territory that is a bit too personal. Stick to the football.

What's your agenda here? It's very obvious you and southtyronegael are the one person and have a personal agenda against Micky Harte. I'm actually fed up of the trash you have been posting. You've crossed the line, enoughs enough!!

I wouldn't be a big fan of Mickeys methods but this thread is a joke
