Philly Jordan and Declan Bogue put this better than me…but the effect of this year’s semi-final may be felt for years to come.
A Tyrone team that breezed through Ulster with record scores - which took years in the planning - was taken apart by Dublin in minutes. A grand design up in smoke and the worst defeat under MH.
As Philly Jordan put it, Tyrone were going to get beat out of the gate no matter what system they used. But it’s whether a system that delivers in Ulster can have any currency outside of it.
It’s more complex than a binary defensive or attack. Without decent forwards, no team is going to win no mater how attacking they are.
But maybe if more time was spent developing attacking players, you might have more chance. I still can’t understand why a multi-£ development site in Gervaghey can’t produce at least 2 or 3 good forwards.
The worst aspect of it…from an ulster context…is that the other counties lag behind Tyrone.
