The new Tyrone football management team of Feargal Logan and Brian Dooher have lost no time in getting down to business.
Their appointment may only have been formally confirmed on Tuesday night but already it is clear that they share a strong focus on 2021. And it is apparent that they are determined to stamp their own imprimatur on the role they share.
A strategy of playing on the front foot, a potentially restructured playing squad, an appetite for challenge matches - something unheard of in Mickey Harte's reign - and a desire to return to the glory days of the Noughties already form just part of a complex agenda that could yet see the Red Hands climb to a position of eminence again.
Both Logan and Dooher were part of the management team when Tyrone collected the All-Ireland U21 title in 2015 and will inherit a number of players from that particular squad.
Positivity would appear to underline their mantra with Logan pinpointing the success of Cavan and Tipperary last weekend.
"I think attacking play as opposed to defensive play has washed through a bit and the understanding now is that the more offensive style is in vogue. Teams are going to have to get on the front foot and go for broke," insisted Logan.
"Our role involves a big responsibility and we certainly don't underestimate this. We know that there are many thousands of Tyrone fans out there who want to see the county enjoy success again and that's what we will be trying to bring for them.
"We are very pleased to be getting the chance to work with the best talent there is in Tyrone. It is a huge challenge for us to bring out the best in these players. There are three people prepared to come forward with us in the management team - Collie Holmes, Joe McMahon and Peter Donnelly - and they will have a big part to play."
With the Dr McKenna Cup competition unlikely to take place in January and the Allianz League due to start on the third weekend in February, Logan has made it clear that Tyrone will more than likely be in the market for challenge games - a new departure for the Red Hands.
"Maybe football is over-analysed at the minute but this is something we have to do," pointed out Logan. "Maybe there are players out there who will come on board and ask us questions and we would hope to have answers for them. We have no doubt that players will have expectations of us and it's up to us to deliver on this if we can. We need early games to assess players."
And Logan suggests that "there is not a pile that needs to be changed" in relation to Tyrone GAA going forward.
"I think the county is in good shape but of course we have the chance to put a bit of a stamp on things," he added. "But we don't intend to do anything radical. We just want to build on what we have at present, there is not a pile that needs to be changed. I was under four Tyrone managers as a player and things are fundamentally the same as they were then.
"But the bottom line is that there will be things that are unique to us and it will be our voices that will be heard.
"I don't think that the philosophy of Brian Dooher and myself in terms of backing Tyrone teams will change. I think it is fair to say that Dublin is the team we all look up to.
"I studied them last Saturday night again and you're looking for one weakness in just one player and yet there is none.
"They are setting some standards out there but we will always be backing Tyrone teams against any opposition."
Both Logan and Dooher share a zeal and passion for football that could prove infectious within a county where the sport is invariably a dominant topic of conversation - even if it does centre on lauding the Dubs!
Dooher stressed: "They are the benchmark for the rest of us no matter how you look at things. Obviously the manner in which they overcame Meath last Saturday has shortened the odds on them making it a sixth All-Ireland title on the trot. You can't take it away from them, they are the pacesetters.
"They have players on their bench who can come on and do as good a job as any of the starting 15."
• THE GAA's Central Council are expected to rubber-stamp a revised 2021 calendar that will again be truncated to take into account current public health conditions.
The inter-county season will run from the end of February, when the leagues resume, until the third week in July when the All-Ireland football final will be played, a week after the hurling decider.
To achieve this, there will be no pre-season competitions - Munster hurling league, Connacht football league and Walsh, McKenna, O'Byrne, and McGrath Cups.
The April break, which has been in place since 2018 for clubs to play matches with their inter-county players, is being discarded to allow for continuity that will see provincial Championships start in April, with just a two-week break between league finals and the Championship.
