The Monseigner Mickey Harte is starting up a seige I'm sure. The ' forces of darkness are gathering against our noble white knights again.

Brilliant idea for a thread, we should also have an award for most ridiculous siege mentality for 2018.
Technically there was a mini-siege already during the league with Jim Gavin and the media over access to recordings of games.

I've no idea why Michael Ryan is refusing to talk to the media, that one was very surprising.

The Limerick football manager is worth a mention here. He has presumably been preparing all year for the championship opener but still didn't know his squad of 26 by Wednesday. Then a mix-up led to him threatening not to field a team for the game until 10 minutes before throw in. If that is the stuff a manager is focusing on its hard to see how the team could have been properly prepared.

In fairness, I think he's just using the only bit of national exposure he get's to highlight how the footballers are being treated in comparison to their hurling brothers lately. As a manager its his job to speak up for his players and if the CB's treatment leaves something to be desired he has a right to say it.

Well Mick Ryan ended as soon as it started.....
Sure what would he have said anyway :
"Ah sure, the game took on a life of its own, Limerick deserved the win, we will sit down this week and analyse it and go through what we can improve on before the game next weekend, blah blah blah".
It is stupid not to speak to the media though - it just heaps the pressure on the team.

i suspect he knew the pressure would be amplified for the game this weekend if he didn't say something.

Fermanagh deny this happened. And since there are no actual journalists in this country nobody tried to check out the story....proably as it was generating hits

That a Limerick poster would pick Mickey Harte and Tyrone is bewildering to be honest. Do you not have any local rivalry of note to rouse the blood? Then when I see the monicker Ye put on Mickey it might not even be about football anyway.....
