Replying To Thomas Clarke:  "In a team sport, when you lose your best players and can't go and sign any new ones, you lose."
I was under the impression that your team had signed up McKenna or are negotiations still on-going.

Replying To TheUsername:  "Actually just read another article and it sounded as if he is returning home for family reasons, sorry if my previous post was insensitive if that is case, best wishes to Connor and family."
No issue Username- I just seen that myself.

I meant McShane, not McKenna who seems to have difficult decisions to make about his future.

It would be a BIG boost if McKenna joins up with Tyrone. A few weeks ago with McShane supposedly going, I felt Tyrone's hopes for sam were slim, where they could now look to be very strong.

It would be great to have McKenna back and if ye could possibly get mattie Donnelly back as well.

How is matties injury going?

Do you think so? I hope you're right. With those 2 guys, we should get to a semi, but we'll still lose. Team doesn't have a winning mentality.

Take this with a pinch of salt but i heard word that came from a fella who lived with McKenna last year in Melbourne and they are obviously still very close that he is absolutely mad to come home full time, if he got confirmation from Mickey Harte that he would be welcomed into the Tyrone panel this year he will not be going back to Essendon.

Mattie might be back for the start of the championship according to MIckey Harte.

That's good, I had heard he was out for the year. If McKenna comes on board then Tyrone are right up there as contenders for Sam?

Tyrone have lost three times in the Championship in each of the last two seasons, with some of those being heavy defeats. I think they have issues beyond what bringing in a player who hasn't played intercounty in seven years can fix.

No - first round in Ballybofey, as tough as they come.
