Tyrone for Sam 2017 - 1 Like(s)

Replying To ulster83:  "They are IMO on a par with Dublin and a good bit ahead of Kerry and Donegal now.
They have proven match winners and have 7/8 players who would get onto most teams in the country including Dublin who seemed to tire towards the end of last year."
What have Tyrone done in the last year let alone 4 years for you to say they are on par...I would be interested in hearing your reasons

O Byrne Cup Draw 2017 - 1 Like(s)

Replying To ziggy32001:  "So you would say it is far from Louths best 15?"
Ziggy as I said before it is hard to tell at this stage because some players were injured and others were playing with their colleges. When the league is up and running we will know what Louth's best 15 players are to play for the Wee County.

McKenna Cup Panel - 1 Like(s)
Interesting team named for Derry match. Think Malachy is trying to have as much strength in depth as possible in key areas for year ahead as we will badly need a strong bench to prevent burnout of important players as the games come thick and fast. Role of squad players massive in modern game.Think we have a decent panel which will serve us well. Be great if likes of McGinn and McCarthy can take some of pressure off McManus.

Tyrone for Sam 2017 - 1 Like(s)

Replying To riverboys:  "It's Kerry v Tyrone for the 2017 All Ireland Final, Mayo showed how to stop Dublin, only for defence mistakes giving away soft scorable frees (and a few dodgy ref decisions) Mayo should have beaten Dublin twice in 2016, I expect Tyrone to have plenty in the tank and tactics to beat Dublin in the semi final. Will they win Sam I don't know I have been saying that 3 years is too long for Kerry without Sam"
don't know what game you were watching lad, games are not won on ifs. best team won end of time to get over it !!

Introducing The Mark - 1 Like(s)

Replying To omahant:  "I think the MARK idea is half baked - there is not a proper mechanism to bring back and ensure the midflelder soars into the sky.
First question - is that the goal ? - if no, get rid of the mark - if yes, then force it by rule -
Say, on kickouts, 6 backs/6 forwards/1 goalkeeper behind each 45, 4 midfielders contest the kickout which must cross the 45 -
To retain possession, kick out team MUST field the ball before it touches the ground -
Otherwise, other team gets a free from where the ball bounces - this breaks up the blanket defence as well.

Also, how effective is no back pass to the GOALIE, when you can to the full back instead - say, no backpasses at all or one in a passing sequences.
Opinions ?"
Balls of an idea. What happens if a player is at the by line and has no other option but to pass backwards. Your encouraging teams to just hit the ball forward with no purpose to it.

I've a bit of a radical suggestion....why don't we scrap the black card, scrap the mark and leave the rules alone.

Lads. This guy came on here a week ago and making outrageous statements. He is on the wind up.

I don't think Tyrone are quite ready yet, but the funny thing about them is, under a guy like Harte they have the capacity to step up if they make the business end, which they should. There is no Canavan, O'Neill or even a Mugsy in their 15 but they're not a mile off. It will take a decent side to beat them, and there's a few around.
