2019 NFL Round 6, Dublin v Tyrone, Saturday March 16th @ 7pm, Croke Park


#101

Remember that one well, train was cancelled half way to dublin becasue of a small landslide onto the tracks so didnt make it to the match, thankfully.


#102

Was that match that Sean Cavanagh took out Whealo?


#103

Take out / gentle nudge / late tackle.

I wouldn’t split hairs.

I’ve bumped into Sean C a few times…and he looks gangly. He just must tog out big because in real life he’s fairly slim.


#104

Freddy got it wrong so with his ‘caught in a landslide, no escape from reality.’


#105

No that was the league match under lights in Croker. Whelo made the most of it too


#106

Brogan went off injured in both 05 replay and 08 games.


#107

Cheers for that @Stato82


#108

Gormley was at the height of his evil powers in 2005 / 2008 …Ive enjoyed looking at his sombre mush strutting from the cusack of late though


#109

C Gormley helps out with the county.

He was at HP for the league game v Cavan - taking the kids on the pitch at half-time.

CG was like a lot of good defenders…a nice bit of badness about him.

A criticism of this current tyrone side is they don’t have enough bas**rds in the team.


#110

Think Brogan might have got injured in first game v Tyrone in 05 and aggravated injury in replay. Still got 2 points in replay.


#111

Makes you wonder what AB would’ve won had he been born a few years later.


#112

younger ?


#113

Note to self:

Proof-read every obvious question before a wise cracking Dub takes the piss.

I’m away for a sulk.


#114

I didn’t think it could get much lower than that day. Little did I know things would get worse before they got better. Fast forward to 2011 and DC knocking then over from everywhere under lights with both feet. That was the match when I felt we were back in the big time.


#115

Agree with that . It was the best performance of gilroy s era I always thought. Could have had a bagful of goals . It finished off that era for Tyrone and Dublin were back in the big time.


#116

Alan Brogan was great man to take a point, but goals were definitely not his forte. I seem to remember he missed a few that night.


#117

Back then I said it was the first time I saw Tyrone look old.

A ravenous Dublin hunted them down. Brian Dooher was roasted.

Tyrone won 4 AI minors last decade. The biggest regret is that not enough replenished that 03-08 team.

It’s only now the well is dry do people here appreciate what talent we had.


#118

I think he was a very good goal-scorer til his role changed under Gilroy, played deeper and had to do alot more work off the ball than pre-G. And then he lost a bit of pace later on


#119

It did. But Gormley still got away with murder and Tyrone were given 36 frees, we got 12, and that in a game where we were all-out attack and them hanging on for dear life.
Guess who the ref was?


#120

Dublin joe. I remember the Irish times (Sean Moran) describes his performance as ecccentric. I recalll A Brogan getting shoved over the line and a free awarded against him. To think how Dublin joe turned it all around to help us :sweat_smile:
