When you talk about pushing up on kick-outs...that's well and good, and Tyrone do spend a spell doing that, but as soon as it doesn't work it's panic stations. There's no confidence in the defence to leave them 6 on 6.

Did Tiernan McCann try to chip a keeper who was on his line in the first half? It's these silly in-game decisions that cost them. We were used to lads like O'Neill and Mulligan putting everything over. Also, late in the second, who went through and fisted the ball across the box to no one?

What was frustrating was the lack of movement from the 2, sometimes 3, forwards who moved into FF when Tyrone attacked. They were so static, putting their hands up for the ball but standing behind their man. Surely lads like McCurry are expert enough in that position to create space. Andy Moran, until he tired and McCarron got the upper hand, found space time and time again with clever runs. There was just nothing for the other lads to hit, so they had to recycle the ball and try again.

Some bad wides though.

....And our scoring back was black carded for having the audacity to tackle.

Forward play was a mess. Used the early footpass in and it was a healthy option til Mayo got on top of that. Reverted to type then. Tyrone did leave 2 men at times in the FF line but they were completely static. McCurry lumping a Hail Mary on top of a double marked Bradley summed it up. Poor decision making, poor shooting. We don't have a top 4 forward unit.

Fcuk sake. The amount of money we spend in Westport.

Mon Tyrone. Let's get wired into these bandaged cursed bastids.

If Fr Ted was about Protestants, Tony would love it and probably have his photo taken with every actor in it.

As for Mrs Browne, it's one hell of a success. Don't watch it unless it's on and she doesn't turn over. It's appealing to some people, somewhere. Probably in the midlands. Themuns in Longford, Offaly etc laugh at anything to escape from their daily routines.

weve been relegated twice since 2010 so id say we are due again. monaghan have won more ulsters than us in the last 5 yrs. but at least we have 6 in a row mc kenna cups.
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.

There is no one who thinks that way.

The fact that he did that in his garden is very comforting.

Hard to see that attacking mindset forming any time soon though. As games progress, Tyrone seem to automatically revert to what they're programmed to do. Against middle-tier teams it'll work as the opposition don't have the players disciplined and programmed to stand firm on the defensive 45 like Donegal did last night. But against top tier teams they get as far as the opponent's 45 and hit a wall, 12 scores maximum.
