Not a great final to be honest. But both teams give it their all and that's a credit to them. Wind was very strong.
I feel Omagh were the better team just about. Errigal relied on Petey Harte too much.
Co Grugan good for Omagh as well as O'D.
Strange that Errigal made 4 changes at Half time or before.

Replying To The_Fridge:  "HaHa I think its a love/hate thing but we move forward.
I agree, the capacity was fine yesterday for Carrickmore. However I was with older gentlemen yesterday and they would of liked a seat which is only available in the Nally stand at the far corner which isn't an ideal viewing postion. Parking wasn't great either.

Thoughts about next week?"
I'm hearing from twitter, numerous posts and from some friends in Tyrone who were at the county final that this was an awful game - one twitter group albeit a funny one at halftime called it "Pure Dung" at 0-4 to 0-1. Is Tyrone football beginning to resemble Mickey Harte's county tactics - if it is God help the good supporters who pay to go to club matches in your county. Think MH has a lot to answer for!!!

Horrible game. Both teams played pure muck.

No wonder Tyrone football has a bad name with this sorry excuse for a county final.

I took in county finals for years and it is probably unfair to rate finals played in October. Much preferred when finals played at end of August. Believe Donegal final today was poor as well.

Fair enough the weather may have played a part in how poor this game. I do agree that the championship is being ruined by the scheduling of our county board and what is dictated by the county team.

At the same time my own club played in 3 very good championship games this year which were played in similar conditions so I think the teams need to take a bit of personal responsibility for what was on offer.

To be fair lads, neither Errigal nor Omagh are under obligation to entertain - it was a final, finals are for winning hence the dogged nature of it. Brutal stuff but sure there won't be a word of complaint from anyone in Omagh today.
