harte is a fraud. he won all irelands with exceptional players and had a master tactiction by his side in tony donnelly. he replaced donnelly with a moron called gavin devlin and between the 2 of them have been found out tactically and have managed to drag the good name of tyrone football through the dirt with their media bans, diving, sledging and all round anti football carry on. this is the culture they have created and the next man is going to have a hell of a job turning things around.
Herein lies the problem!!! Are we satisfied that our minors and u21's are playing and being coached a brand of football that is awful to watch....Our U21's weren't able to score against Donegal in Ballybofey two weeks ago. We set our senior team up with guys that are better defenders/ than scorers. In the past we have Produced magical forwards - Canavan, Cush, Mulligan, O Neil, Cavlan, Mc Guigan - guys that were never subjected to being made stand in a line across the 45 and tackle like a dogs. Good forwards with potential have been discarded - Coney for example - could we have managed him better?? He destroyed aidan o shea in a minor final in croker. Lee Brennan is as good a forward in the county - why is he not being played?
Why in Kerry are they able to produce great forwards year after year - Gooch, then o Donoghue, then Geaney and now young Spillane at U21 level. They have a crop of stuff coming and its because they are not beinmg coached this shitty defensive stuff.
Our defensive minded system is good to a last 8 - but not last 4. We are producing players who's strongest attribute is not scoring - we haven't had a top forward since Stephen o Neill. We have top class facilities - no expense has been spared but sadly we are moving down the rankings
