Tyrone team for Sunday named

Tyrone have this evening named their team (and, unlike us, their lists of subs as well) for Sunday. Here it is:

Tyrone (All-Ireland SFC semi-final v Mayo, 22/8/2013): Pascal McConnell (Newtownstewart); Ryan McKenna (Eaglais), Conor Clarke (Omagh), Cathal McCarron (Dromore); Ciaran McGinley (Errigal Ciaran), Peter Harte (Errigal Ciaran), Conor Gormley (Carrickmore); Colm Cavanagh (Moy), Sean Cavanagh (Moy); Mattie Donnelly (Trillick), Mark Donnelly (Carrickmore), Joe McMahon (Omagh); Darren McCurry (Edendork), Stephen O’Neill (Clann na Gael), Connor McAliskey (Clonoe). Subs:  Michael O’Neill (Clonoe), Dermot Carlin (Killyclogher), Aidan Cassidy (Augher), Kyle Coney (Ardbo), Kevin Gallagher (Newtonstewart), Conan Grugan (Omagh), Plunkett Kane (Coalisland), Johnathan Lafferty (Urney), Danny McBride (Strabane), Tiernan McCann (Killyclogher), Aidan McCrory (Errigal Ciaran). 

Mickey Harte has made two changes, one enforced, from the side that started against Monaghan in the quarters – out go Dermot Carlin and the suspended Martin Penrose and they’re replaced by Ryan McKenna and Connor McAliskey respectively. Aside from that, it’s the same team (though not necessarily with the same numbers on their backs, not that this particular detail matters much where it comes to Tyrone) that started against Monaghan last time out.

  1. While I await WJ to approve the “crickets” sound effect link, I have some thoughts on Conor Clark.
    It will be interesting to see how they deploy Conor. He’s a massive part of their setup, has presence in the FB line, is physical and covers a tremendous amount of ground. Tends to roam forward a lot, however can be slower to retreat. Wondering how we will we play it, as I see that as a potential area for exploitation. Thoughts ?

  2. Some great posts recently……..JRuane mayomaningalway, 2.5 more sleeps. Great show last nite. David Brady was spot on. Tyrone dont have Mayos standard. Cavanagh carried them over the line in last 3matches. Tyrone can’t damage Mayo. Mayo to do well with Breaking Ball. Mayos 15 to bring JH over the line….first memory and experience in Croker was ’89. 2013 will be better. Great site here WJ. MAIGHEO ABHU…..by 2pts.

  3. Does anyone know if this is the first time 2 sets of brothers went head to head at midfield at such an advanced stage of All Ireland?

  4. I would doubt that Trevor, obviously not certain at all but if you look at the last ten or 15 years many of the teams at the business end of the season have had sets of brothers on teams, possibly not in midfield against each other though. The o ses from kerry, meehans from galway, mc entees from Armagh, brogans from Dublin, mortimers and bradys I suppose it’s possible this is the first time they will line out in midfield against each other, but the modern game is gone so flexible that pre match programme positions mean sweet F all. Sean Cavanagh for example actually plays most of his football at wing forward these days, I’d expect joe mc Mahon to be in the thick of the midfield tussle the next day regardless where he lines out.
