GAA: It's Not about Revenge; ULSTER FOOTBALL FINAL: Tyrone V Armagh, Croke, Tomorrow 3.30 GEEZER PLAYS IT COOL AND SAYS WINNING IS ALL


Byline: Orla BANNON

KIERAN McGeeney insists that those expecting Armagh to carry out a revenge mission on Tyrone in tomorrow's Ulster final will be disappointed.

It's the game everybody has been waiting to see since the Red Hands wrestled the Sam Maguire away from Armagh in the 2003 All-Ireland final - and it should be compulsive viewing.

The common perception is that the Orchard County can't wait to take a few lumps out of Tyrone. However 'Geezer' claims the prize is too precious for them to lose focus and get caught up in avenging what happened two years ago.

"I suppose people will gear it up to be something it's not - again," said the Armagh skipper.

"Ourselves and Tyrone know each other well. They're looking for an Ulster title and so are we.

"I know people think you're trying to get away from that (revenge) but you can't let it turn into that sort of game.

Lying disconsolately up against the concrete tunnel, as he watched Peter Canavan lift the cup he'd owned for the previous 12 months, was one of the enduring images of 2003.

However he is determined to put those thoughts out of his head as he concentrates on a popular word in Armagh - winning.

"When you lose does anybody really care about you?" he asks.

"If you have the winning of a game it doesn't matter who you beat and Tyrone are thinking the same. They're going all-out to win an Ulster Championship and so are we."

The inclusion of Tony McEntee and defensive midfielder John Toal may mean McGeeney will be given a freer role instead of having to man-mark Brian McGuigan. …
