Wow. 5 past Morgan. And it's not even halftime.
That Tyrone defense is unbelievable. And not in a good way.

Tyrone simply will not beat Kerry or Dublin until they learn to be as ruthless as them in front of goals. They are getting a lesson in that today. Plus, if they can find a keeper for the big games it wouldn't harm them one bit. Morgan has had a lot of seasons as number one now and I've yet to see him look convincing against top opposition in that time.

Kerry playing some fantastic stuff here. I'm sure they can take the foot off for a nice cool down in the second half at this stage.

Not a bad time for Tyrone to learn some lessons before championship. Mc Kenna playing well. Need to play Kennedy, Mc Cann, Ruari Brennan. Need Mc Shane back on the square. Donaghy needs to be less predictable. Need to go for goals. Morgan needs to stay in goals when the opposition have the ball.

The worrying thing for Tyrone is that they have essentially their best available 15 on the pitch and they look way off Kerry.
Our lineup v Dublin is missing 5/6 starters so a great chance for others to get 70 mins. I would expect Dublin to win easy but getting 70 mins for these players is the only value in this game. It's all about championship!

They won't need to buy any masks around Halloween anyway, Tyrone are playing rope a dope. trying to lull Cavan into a false sense of security.

Don't know about winning easily, look its a good run out for both, and thats all it is, enjoy the game, result won't matter too much either way other than a head boost for Donegal.

I don't see why the GAA couldn't play the league Final sometime later in the year, maybe all the fans will be back by then.

Another tough campaign ahead for Kerry in Munster this year. Looks like they have a lot to work on alright. They won't be happy with this showing.

Wow and one of the yerra Kerry lads here tried to fool us with their Tyrone to win prediction.
That's some statement by Kerry.

Very pleased with Kerry today but Tyrone looked poor. I still think they will be dangerous when championship comes. Have to disagree with you on Morgan. He had a bad day today but I think he s a great keeper and imo he s in the top 3 keepers in the country.

He looks ok against most teams. But he has a serious tendency to look as though the occasion gets to him against the Dublins and Kerrys in Croker. I feel as though I'm saying the same thing year after year about this Tyrone set up and Morgan in particular, even leaving today's performance aside. I dont know enough about other keepers within the county but I have a feeling ill be repeating this issue by the end of the championship.

We will agree to disagree. I think his free taking a major asset also in the heat of the championship. Yes he was silly today but the goal was a thing of beauty by Gavin White.

Watched 3 games today and mostly enjoyed them but that feckin' advanced mark is wrecking my head. An accurate pass picks out a fellow inside the 45 and you think "good attack coming here", but no. The bloody whistle blows and it's a free even though the man was unchallenged. This sort of nonsense and the more or less non-contact feature of our game will destroy it.

I agree. If anything gaelic football needs a rule change to give defenders a chance of fairly winning possession back, not making it easier for the team in possession.
