There have been a few on here the last couple of years saying this Tyrone team have great potential, myself included. The big “if” was their ability to take scores. Up until yesterday any time I had seen them they lacked confidence in front of the posts. If they can back that performance up with a similar one I think they could jump above Mayo with the bookies.
But, Donegal were very poor. They gave them acres of space around the 40, they were obviously under instruction to defend very deep because they didn’t see a massive scoring threat further out. Very bad in game management not to change tact when it was clear to see Tyrone were on fire from distance. I would imagine Monaghan will set up to start making contact in packs higher up the field.
Also, Donegal were turned over with ease, the young men just couldn’t break the tackle, most of the Monaghan boys are big lumps that won’t be as easily stopped.
Really looking forward to that final. There could be a draw on the cards. Ulster is by far the most exciting championship.
