THE THROW-IN PODCAST: Joe Brolly on the future of football 'Tyrone's defeat was brilliant - it's the death of the blanket defence'
Joe Brolly joins Johnny Ward to celebrate the 'future of football' and the death of the blanket defence with the thumping of Tyrone by Dublin.
"Dublin might as well have been playing against traffic cones," says Brolly. "Tyrone's big problem was how were they going to work the ball out? They were doomed from the outset."
"Sunday was brilliant to see. It was about a return to playing football."
He's also critical of the one-dimensional, singular way that Mickey Harte has Tyrone playing.
"Obviously they did well in the 2000s but when Jim McGuinness came along he wiped the floor with Tyrone and Mickey Harte. How have they advanced?" he asks. "It's a criminal offence to criticise Mickey Harte in Tyrone. It's a massive problem."
