If there isn’t a go-to player, then your collective system needs to be operating at a very high level. For instance, Tyrone do not have Stephen O’Neill or Peter Canavan anymore. So their collective system is well-oiled and calibrated to provide whoever ends up with the ball with a reasonable scoring opportunity.
I can't agree with this at all. A classic case of the complete absence of this was Tyrone's performance in last year's QF, ironically against Mayo. There was no such collective system as Tyrone made a complete mess of the last ten minutes with crazy shooting from anywhere and anyone. Jim's point just doesn't stack up.
Similarly in his own team's Final appearance of 2014 there was no sign of these 'Shared Mental Models' or having a collective objective.
Comparing them to Monaghan too is a bit ingenuous given that Mayo nor very few other teams have a forward of the calibre of McManus.
