We could play our entire club championship programme in that gap.

McStay needs to keep them locked away to try and teach them how to identify players in different coloured shirts and run towards them.

Tyrone / Re: Tyrone County Football and Hurling

Irish news off the fence interesting read today especially Tyrone supporter since the seventies 'Austin'. Unfortunately this is the very sad state of affairs we are in. Of course the Irish news gave their customary sneering response to Austin. Nobody but nobody criticizes our Mickey in their eyes.
seen that too. looks like there are alot more 'austins' out there other than whats on here.

There were lots of "Austins" when Down beat us in 2008 too. I'd prefer to just get behind the team, but sure, each to their own.
thats bullshit. tyrone played really well against down but lost out in replay. i remember backing tyrone at 20/1 for ai after down game. felt we still had the potential in 08. different feeling in 2017.

There was plenty of clowns like yourself making exactly the same noises that's you are making now. I was stood behind a group of middle aged men who were booing at Harte as he walked off the pitch. It was embarrassing to see Tyrone fans behave in such a way. That's the same embarrassment that I feel when I read your posts now.....you seem like the type who goes along to boo at the team. But like I said, each to their own.

It is extremely sickening to hear the likes of that horrible aul bitter west brit Ruth Dudley Edwards on Newsnight last night and on Nolan this morning blatantly denying that Catholics were even remotely oppressed or terrorised in the old Stormont or indeed during the troubles ...  She is a unionist and continuously spouts the usual lies that the British & Unionists were whiter than white and it was all the nationalists/Catholics fault...

One of my earliest memories was being a very young child and being woken up by a British Soldier standing there with a rifle in his hand ... I come from a large Catholic family, who were NEVER involved in anything, but because we were a large Catholic family we were fair game to be raided on several occasions .. and we were .. 3 in my memory .. Lets just say it was never a pleasant experience..

And as for Tebit, well he's really not worth thinking about as he will continue to stew in his own bile .. for years to come hopefully..

But youse lads are right, only for having parents that shepherded you away from getting involved there would have been a lot more people involved..  but its very easy to see how many people did..

Reading back through the experiences of so many of the posters on here brings the memories of growing up in the late 70's and 80's all back again. Things at that time that seemed like ' normal ' everyday occurrences would be completely bewildering and terrifying to kids growing up now and thank God for that.
            We lived in a small rural housing estate in South Down. I wouldn't say it was a particularly republican area but definitely nationalist. A very vivid memory of mine is when we as a child of about 5 or 6, my brother and myself took our dog for a walk up to a hilly area above the estate. It was a wee jack russell and it raced away ahead of me up the hill barking away at something which we thought was a rabbit. When we reached the top of the hill we literally walked on top of a group of camouflaged troops with telescopic camera lens etc(they were obviously observing the estate). Our arrival had obviously blown their cover. The wee dog wouldn't stop barking so one particular get laced his boot into it which broke it's neck. The others questioned us for some time about ' who had sent us up the hill to check ' . After that, they pointed their guns at us and told us to run back down the hill and home. By the time we got home we were both hysterical. We were advised to go to the police but da didn't want any trouble so it was left at that.

Think Meyler and McNulty could be v close to making the championship team

Why do you say that Dire Ear? I would expect Meyler but I'll be surprised if McNulty makes it.
A long way to go yet to championship time.
There is huge competition for those half back and half forward lines
T.McCann, Justy, Harte and Sludden are probably the only shoe ins.
McNabb, Munroe, McGeary, Brennan, Burns, McCrory, Meyler and McShane are all a much of a muchness.
I think McClure is being given plenty of time but just can't see him being in the starting come c'ship ; well maybe v Derry when Harry could play!! I would have big hopes ( maybe misjudged ) for McNulty in midfield.

Like other crap "comedies" like Father Ted,Mrs Brown owes its popularity in Britain to its portrayal and compliance with the Irish stereotype view there that we are all stupid,idiotic,foul mouthed,drunken etc

I remember playing against a girl at u-12 level anyway.
Whether that's still the rule or not, I dunno.
She played corner forward and destroyed us.  :-[

The RTE pundits had an off night. Brady reckoned that McClean would be one of the first names on Pulis's team even though he's only just got a couple of starts after none for about four months.

Dunphy reckoned that Long and Whelan's elbows weren't indisciplined. He also thought that Bale being out the field wasn't hurting us, proven by the clip he was showing which put Taylor in on goal.

they really shouldn't be playing together unless on small school teams

girls are usually bigger and stronger at 11/12 than boys and the only reason some clubs arrive with a few girls to play football or hurling is because their boys aren't that good

I agree with Itchy, for once.
