Yes, and when you're being bate by that amount, you sort of relax. No complaints whatsoever; and no hope of a win, so I found myself just enjoying the game. I remember P Canavan floated one from distance in over the goalie v Fermanagh in 2003 in Croke Park. Also, Clifford's chip pass in the last quarter was nicely done, skill and composure. He'd be a dab hand at the soccer as well I reckon.

Ahh not at all Mick. Sure we all know that Scully's effort was a glitch on the Dublin hard drive. We are not programmed to do things like that.

True by all accounts he was tasty at soccer albeit as a defender I think. Oh well Peter the Great was called that for a reason and yes even when your beaten a true sportsperson can appreciate class like Brian Doohers unbelievable point in the all ireland 08.

Tyrone have serious forwards and will come strong im sure , they do struggle around midfield sector but that's not a new thing for them ..

Tyrone can't play man to man football
Haven't the midfielders for it - never had

They have had15 years of player deep have forwards to mitigate the above - which developed into a double sweeper over the past 7 years

This system was played in all underage Tyrone teams also resulting in an entire generation of defenders who learned to mark space not their man

Will take 2-3 years of practice for these defenders to learn how to mark a top class forward man to man
