John Morrison – how to suffocate your opponent

Dublin frustrated Tyrone during last year’s championship

In his column in this week’s Gaelic Life, John Morrison explains an attacking style called the EA approach.

“EA is not a game plan. It is an over-arching approach of attacking with intensity from the start. The opposition team is suffocated, allowing your team to apply the first of three Es in the half of the EA approach.

“The first E is examine, the second is Exploit, and the third is extend.

“In the second half of the game, your team applies the three As, which are Assert, ascend and annihilate.”

John Morrison explains that Dublin used this strategy to beat Tyrone in the 2017 All-Ireland final, while Tyrone had also used in the same year to beat Armagh in the  quarter-final.
