Happy out with that win, wasn't massively confident we would pull it off though as I said in a previous post it didn't surprise me either that we did! Everything that was missing against Cavan was there on Sunday, the intensity, workrate, physicality, that bit of bite all showed, especially from some of the more senior guys. COC, Boyle, McLoughlin just to name a few were  far more prominent, McLoughlin's winning score especially was a peach. Just scratching my head as to were this level of performance was against Cavan, we might be sittining pretty otherwise. We're a bit like the Ireland rugby team during the Six Nations, consistent at being inconsistent :o


We showed Tyrone respect and set ourselves up defensively to cope with them. We showed Cavan no respect and played open old school football against them believing we could beat them that way.

CORMAC REILLY IS REFFING...  >:(

How is that fool still a Referee? Was taken off the Championship panel two years ago.

Will just have to set Agent Mick Barrett after him. The local stewarts will be helping him onto the pitch! :P

Sure on the basis our 5500 season ticket holders can be accomodated. Will beat the living daylights out of you regardless of where it's played. No doubt you'll find something else to whinge & complain about then.

You get promoted and that's the first thing you think of. You never stop do you! Youre a sad fn excuse for an inter county team. Great to have you back in Div 1. That's 2 points guaranteed and a damn good hiding to go with it

I'm just 1 contrary fan, I'm sure the team itself will be focusing on the next game and trying to improve. The only thing I would like to see is that teams are treated fairly in terms of getting to play home games, it was a disgrace in 2013 to only have 2 league games played in Newbridge (our county board were culpable too).

We love that ye still have a bitter hatred against us even though we are absolutely no threat whatsoever to Dublin's dominance.

Bitter hatred? Nah! It's more pity and disdain. Couldn't give a fiddlers about you other you never never stop moaning & whinging about Dublin. You fckd your money away on McGeeney. You have a sh1tehole of a ground that isn't capable of hosting Div 1 games. Sort your own sh1t out and stop whinging like a fn 4 year old about Dublin.

Says the lad who has to go to our national stadium to play their home games. Why don't ya use Parnell Park? (There won't be an answer THIB goes to bed early - It's a School night!)

I wish it were a "School night".

 I remember Dublin beating Mayo in the replay of the 1955 AI semi final and I can't remember many Mayo wins against the Dubs since then.

Ah, THIB did ya get out of bed for a piss? As predicted you did not answer my question? Why don't ye use Parnell Park instead of our National Stadium? Did ye by any chance not spend a penny on it the last 20 years? And decided to use a ready made home instead? How convenient!

How many Championship games have ye won playing away to Mayo since 1955? I bet we have beaten ye more times when we are playng away from home?

Just back from Omagh! Just nicked it in the end.

Two toothless teams!

I can't understand Tyrone not contesting the kick out? With so many wides it was like handing the ball back to Mayo and saying you have a free pass to the half way line.

Good to see Chris Barrett back our Full back line needs him and he is a no nonsense player.

I was secretly glad to see Lee Keegan Balck carded - he needs a rest (Coen does not).

Referee Conor Lane was all over the place. There were some incidents that he let go and the hits and belts evolved into the dangerous.
Is it becoming an impossible sport to referee? This seems to be a common theme anymore.

A tough day for the players - a lot were out on their feet at the end and discipline must have been really hard to keep.

Don't remember a Mark being made today? No surprise there.  ;)

Aido, Well Aido looked - well, a bit unfit!  ;D

Will talk more later.............

Yes, the youth are not watching. And if they are, there is such a choice that they usually spend on a short length of time on your channel. RTE still commands the attention of older viewers. Problem is they are a dying breed. An older viewers are not ones for spending. Hence advertisers are not attracted.

Most have taken a drop in wages since this article. But you look at the spoofers and the wages they commanded! Crazy!

http://www.irishmirror.ie/whats-on/film-and-tv/top-10-earners-rte-revealed-7562056

RTE is on the way out! The way people watch TV or their interest in TV is different.

Like the decline in Newspapers sales, People don't depend on RTE News to know what is going on nationally or internationally!

Both Seamie and Aido were injured! Seamie played the All Ireland Replay with a torn groin AFAIK. Aido got injured playing Basketball. No point in rushing them back? We know what they have to offer and giving squad players game time is more important. It's all about getting ready for the Summer!

Aido was playing Basketball pre-christmas. I was told he was encouraged by Management to play. The theory is it could improve his control and laying off the ball in tight situations.

Did Mayo find any new scoring forwards so far this year ?

Did ye find any defenders? We'll do a swap?

Just checked there. Mayo's recent McHale Park record is awful!

Looking at 2015/2016/2017

Mayo have played 10 games at home

We have won three - Monaghan (15), Down (16) and Roscommon (17)

We have lost 6 and drawn 1.

On the road during that period is Played 9 Won 5 Lost 4.

Yer lucky ye have us in the Connacht final in McPrenty Park so.

I was talking about the League!  ;)

Do mayo fans realise that when cavan attached with no speed on occasion, Mayo got the exact same amount of players behind the ball. Every team is doing it, there was nothing extraordinary about how cavan set up today. Mayo just seemed very low on pace and urgency to me.

In fairness Mayo played more open than Cavan! There was never going to be a one on one high ball played into the Cavan goalmouth. The way to beat Cavan today was to mimic Cavan. When Mayo were 5 points up they should have shut up shop and let Cavan do the running. Instead they played like a team who were behind.

Mayo have been sh*te in the league now for almost 7 years. To top it off McHale road is no fortress for us. The themes we are debating today have been the same themes in other league campaigns. We have had a lot of luck staying up over that period. Our luck could run out this year. (And it might not be the end of the world!)

No need for mass dropping of players (yet). But there has to be a bit of courage shown from the line. The blanket defense is here to stay. We played Tyrone at their own game last August. But for what ever reason we see ourselves as above doing the same against Galway, Monaghan and (now) Cavan!

I do understand that Mayo training is scattered at this time of the year. With a lot of the players living outside the county. Preparing for games can be difficult. We have been sh*te in the League year in year out since  2010, Just surviving relegation on many occasions, it's just the way it has been for us.

One bonus from today's result is that any talk of a League final have been put to bed. The Championship is all that matters and wasting energy on trying to win the league is not an option.
