That's all folks

Enda McGinley has already asked the question so I'll venture my top-of-the-head analysis that there is some serious thinking to be done within Ulster football managements after witnessing that today.

The Dubs ripped apart Tyrone's defensive blanket and Mayo will know full well that something close to a man-to-man approach, granted with a sweeper, will work better for them on 17 September.

We haven't heard Mickey Harte's analysis yet and we will bring it to you on the BBC Sport website as soon as we get in. His take will be interesting.

After that display, Dublin will be raging hot favourites to complete a three-in-a-row but Mayo won't mind that one bit.

People forget that they beat the Dubs in the 2012 All-Ireland semi-final and all the contests between the counties in recent years have been close.

Expect nothing different in three weeks.

Tyrone's heaviest semi-final defeat under Mickey Harte

That is Tyrone's heaviest All-Ireland semi-final defeat under Mickey Harte. That was surely as chastening an occasion as the Red Hands have have to endure since Harte's arrival in the job in the autumn of 2002.

Where does that leave Ulster football? Even with Mickey Harte's legendary optimism, he must surely have been rocked by that. Dublin were so impressive but that was incredibly depressing for a Tyrone man.

Full-time: Dublin 2-17 0-11 Tyrone

Dublin have crushed Tyrone's All-Ireland dream. Quite simply they have outclassed the Red Hands.

Dublin 2-17 0-11 Tyrone

Dublin waste yet another goal chance as Paul Flynn's shot is saved by Morgan although he gathers the ball out near the wing to stroke over another point.

Dublin 2-16 0-11 Tyrone

Tyrone earn a penalty in injury-time but Peter Harte's shot is beaten away by Stephen Cluxton's strong right hand. It looked a dubious enough award by David Coldrick for a challenge on Colm Cavanagh.

Dublin 2-16 0-11 Tyrone

O'Gara towers over another Tyrone point as Diarmuid Connolly is introduced for the final seconds amid huge cheers from the Hill.


Dublin 2-15 0-11 Tyrone

Eoghan O'Gara palms in Dublin's second goal with three minutes left to put a more reflective look on the scoreboard after the Tyrone defence is ripped asunder once again.

Dublin 1-15 0-11 Tyrone

Paul Flynn is making his case for inclusion against Mayo on 17 September as he pings over another long-range score. With no sign of a Tyrone goal coming, this game seems to be meandering to its inevitable conclusion. Dublin in cruise control.

Tyrone have been doing better since they have gone man to man but Dublin are still too good

Dublin 1-14 0-11 Tyrone

Declan McClure fires over a superb towering point. Six in it after 63 minutes as the Dubs introduce Eoghan O'Gara.

Dublin 1-14 0-10 Tyrone

But there is no sense of panic in the Dublin ranks and substitute Paul Flynn strokes over a trademark towering point from distance. That's something Dublin haven't been doing too much today as they have tended to work the ball in close to Tyrone's goals before applying the finish.

Dublin 1-13 0-10 Tyrone

Colm Cavanagh floats over a point from distance and Niall Sludden quick tags on another. Only six in it now with 13 minutes of normal time left. A Tyrone goal and it could get interesting.

Dublin 1-13 0-08 Tyrone

Dean Rock slots another Dublin free won by liveware O'Callaghan. Peter Harte replies in kind at the other end. Sean Cavanagh has just been replaced for Tyrone after what was expected to be his final Tyrone appearance. It's not been a great day for the Red Hand warrior but what a career he has had.

Dublin 1-12 0-07 Tyrone

Jack McCaffrey has missed an absolute sitter of the goal chance with only Niall Morgan to beat after the Tyrone defence is easily breached once again. Dublin have become a little careless in the second half but there is still no sense that Tyrone are going to mount a late comeback.

Dublin 1-12 0-07 Tyrone

That man McManamon wins another free which Dean Rock strokes over the bar. Eight between the sides again. At the other end, Peter Harte fires a wide with Sean Cavanagh complaining that the ball should have delivered into the square.

Dublin 1-11 0-07 Tyrone

McManamon very nearly ended the game as a contest as he steps inside Rory Brennan before lashing against the crossbar. A lucky escape for Tyrone.

Dublin 1-11 0-07 Tyrone

Dublin are giving the ball away more in the second half but Tyrone are not making good use of their increased possession. The Dubs are starting to bring on reinforcements as super sub Kevin McManamon comes on for Paddy Andrews.

Dublin 1-11 0-07 Tyrone

After another deliberate build-up, Dublin work another score as Jack McCaffrey fires over. Niall Sludden quickly replies for Tyrone. Seven in it with 42 minutes played.

Dublin 1-10 0-06 Tyrone

Paul Mannion hits Dublin's first point of the second half. Tyrone have a bit more fire in their bellies but still a long road back.

Dublin 1-09 0-06 Tyrone

Well, Tyrone have got the first score of the second half as Peter Harte slams over a free. Tyrone are showing a bit more purpose in the second half although Declan McClure and a subdued Sean Cavanagh have both fired wides.

We're back on

Mickey Harte has made one change at half-time with Rory Brennan on for Kieran McGeary.

Dublin just have too much quality for Tyrone. They are winning probably 13 out of the 15 individual battles.

Half-time: Dublin 1-09 0-05 Tyrone

Dublin utterly dominant here. The Dubs are having so much time on the ball. Hard to see a route back for Tyrone. Mickey Harte is going to have to deliver the mother of all team talks.

Dublin 1-09 0-05 Tyrone

Colm Cavanagh looks a tad fortunate to only pick up a yellow card as his high boot catches Brian Fenton in the stomach as the Dub attempts a shot. Rock points the resultant free. Peter Harte replies at the other end as we are already in first-half injury-time .

Dublin in total control

The Dubs have been hand passing the ball around for the past two minutes and the Hill are cheering every pass. It is starting to become a little embarrassing for Tyrone. Not surprisingly, Mickey Harte has made a change with Declan McClure replacing Conall McCann.

Possession stat so far

Dublin 61% Tyrone 39%. Surprised Tyrone have had that much to be honest such has been Dublin's dominance.

Dublin 1-08 0-04 Tyrone

Once again, Dublin seem to have oodles of time to set up their chances as on-fire O'Callaghan slots again from play. We're 24 minutes in.

Dublin 1-07 0-04 Tyrone

Dublin just seem to have so much time to set up their scoring chances as Brian Fenton fires over following another deliberate build-up. Tyrone need to come up with some answers quickly or this game is going to slip out of reach. The only ray of sunshine for Tyrone is that three Dubs have already been booked as John Small is yellow carded by David Coldrick.

Dublin 1-06 0-04 Tyrone

Colm Cavanagh breaks through a tackle before slotting with his left foot but once again Dublin reply almost immediately as youngster O'Callaghan dummies before stroking over. Eighteen minutes play and Dublin five ahead.

Dublin 1-05 0-03 Tyrone

Peter Harte drills over a free for Tyrone after Dublin's James McCarthy is yellow carded for a high tackle on Mark Bradley. However, Dublin reply with a minute as Rock strokes over a beauty from play after another slick move.

Dublin 1-04 0-02 Tyrone

Dublin are strolling around here finding their men with ease. After a slow build-up, Ciaran Kilkenny strokes over another score. Tyrone then have another escape as Niall Morgan has to make a vital save to prevent Paul Mannion from notching a second Dublin goal after he cuts inside. A goal there and it could have been lights out already for the Red Hands.

Dublin 1-03 0-02 Tyrone

Tiernan McCann fires over a glorious Tyrone point from 45 metres but Paddy Andrews replies in kind by stroking over from a tight angle and for good measure repeats the dose a minute later. Only nine minutes played. The Dublin attack is getting plenty of space at the minute.

Early tactical take

Philly McMahon is shadowing Mattie Donnelly with Jonny Cooper acting as Dublin's sweeper.


Dublin 1-01 0-01 Tyrone

My goodness, Con O'Callaghan has just charged 50 metres down the middle and hammered the ball into the roof of the net. What a strike.

Dublin 0-01 0-01 Tyrone

Sean Cavanagh kicks a 20-metre free to put the Red Hands ahead but Dean Rock quickly level from a placed ball. Been a lively start already. Colm Cavanagh had to make an early interception to cut out a goal threat after late inclusion Niall Scully had ventured into a dangerous position.

And we're off

David Coldrick throws in the ball at Croke Park.

Tyrone players break loose from parade

Well, the Tyrone men have upped the ante by breaking away from the pre-match parade which leaves the Dubs alone to parade behind the Artane Band as they stride alongside the Hill.

The noise from the swathes of Blue tells you what they think of this Red Hand stunt.

Team news

No Connolly for Dublin

The big talking point in advance of the game was whether Jim Gavin was going to start Diarmuid Connolly, whose 12-week ban for pushing a linesman in early June elapsed at midnight.

Well, he hasn't although the Dubs boss has made one change from the side he announced last night with Niall Scully replacing Eric Lowndes at left half-forward.

Scully's inclusion is Dublin's only change from the win over Monaghan.

Mickey Harte's only change from the hammering of Armagh sees two-goal substitute that day David Mulgrew drafted into the starting 15 ahead of Declan McClure as the Red Hands will start as selected on Thursday night.

Dublin: S Cluxton; P McMahon, C O'Sullivan, M Fitzsimons; J Cooper, J Small, J McCaffrey; B Fenton, J McCarthy; C Kilkenny, C O'Callaghan, N Scully; P Mannion, P Andrews, D Rock.

Tyrone: N Morgan; A McCrory, R McNamee, C McCarron; T McCann, P Hampsey, P Harte; C Cavanagh, C McCann; D Mulgrew, N Sludden, K McGeary; M Bradley, S Cavanagh, M Donnelly.
