Ten matches

(Oldest Posts First)

What do you think are Tyrone's top ten matches? Here is my top ten...
Ulster Final 1984 (Frank Mc Guigan outscores Armagh)
Tyrone v Kerry 1986 (The end of the beginning)
Tyrone v Derry 1995 (A point down, two men down, and against the wind)
Tyrone v Cavan 2002 NFL (First National Title and an awful lot of rain)
Tyrone v Down 2003 (Two comebacks for the price of one)
Tyrone v Kerry 2003 (Total Football or something like that)
Tyrone v Dublin 2005 drawn match (Mulligan, options to his left...)
Tyrone v Armagh 2005 semi final (Winning with the last free)
Tyrone v Kerry 2005 (Twice)
Tyrone v Kerry 2008 (Thrice)

Of the top of my head I can only think of Eight. Heres mine> (in no particular order)
1995 All-Ireland Final v Dublin (can't win a game with one man)
2011 USFC Semi-Final v Donegal (Bullied out of it)
2012 USFC v Donegal (can't cope with class)
2012 NFL Div2 Final v Kildare (second best in the second division)
2012 All-Ireland Qualifiers v Kerry (stuffed)
2002 All-Ireland Qualifiers v SLIGO (seriously enough said)
2011 All-Ireland QF v Dublin (don't like the rain)
1986 All-Ireland Final v Kerry (a lesson by old legends)
Fabulous failure!!!!

Certainly agree that Sligo was quite a low point.

Hard to credit one of the worst ten being the occasion of the first time Tyrone won Sam. Recall a hammering by Meath in a National League play-off in Clones on a bitterly cold day as being slightly worse than Tyrone's first Sam Maguire.

most of the usual suspects are there but my top three

armagh 03 for the emotion of it all wont be beaten

derry 95 because of what it meant how it was done 13 and all and what it did to the great derry one in a row team finished them

donegal 2004 mckenna cup final cormacs last game and the most complete performance ive ever seen from a tyrone team bar none even the bananas had to bow their heads at how good we were.

and the worst three

dublin 95 daylight robbery

meath 96 set us back a decade

any derry defeat even in the buncrana cup thats how bad it is to get beat by themins

hello wee box, correct me if im wrong but tyrone only ever did one in a row albeit on three occassions. also tyrone won two all ireland's through the back door which derry wouldnt have had the chance to do so. so in effect our great tyrone team of that decade would also only have won one AI. i do agree that beating derry in 95 with 13 men was arguably one of the best victories ever and probably can only be surpassed by the 3 AI's

Weebox the Meath game 96 was a bad day for Tyrone but set us back a decade? I think within a decade we had one two All Ireland titles.
