Raymond Mulgrew - what a talent

(Oldest Posts First)

What happened? I remember that league game against Dublin when there was so much hype about Connolly and Mulgrew stole the show...

Mulgrew played great for Tyrone throughout 2007 and could easily have won an All-Star that year. The standard around the Tyrone panel can be so high and competitive that some players who I think could have made it such as Coney, McKenna and Clarke etc just don't get there through bad form, injury or just not to Mickey's taste. Even in the present panel you keep waiting for O'Neill or McCurry to really lay down the marker for a regular spot but this does not seem to be happening.

Mulgrew was so talented. Played fantastic against Donegal in Ulster Championship in 2007 scoring a great goal. Maybe too easily lead. Such a waste of talent.

There's numerous players that fit that mold unfortunately, Mark Harte I remember being one in the early 00's to be cheered off by Tyrone supporters during a game. then a couple of years later Coney was the next big thing in Tyrone football and could never make the leap from Minors to Senior at county level. Conor Clarke is a beast of a man and would have loved to see him reach his potential and then was put out by a Bad injury. Niall McKenna was a good player never seen him get close to a county standard unfortunately

What is the situation with Clarke?

It is amazing the talented players who have one or two good seasons and then seem to disappear. Between 02-09 there was the same solid core. You could name nearly 12 of the starting line up without any difficulty. Since then there's been whole teams that have disappeared...

By the looks of things him and Pixie will miss the Quarter-Final of the championship after getting sent off against Moortown on Saturday.
