GAA Discussion / Mayo v Kerry (MacHale Park, 13/3/2016, 2.30pm)
« on: March 07, 2016, 10:25:22 PM »

Great win on the road by our lot above in Clones. I'll be disappointed if we don t build on that at home this weekend. Kerry started the year spluttering a bit but were bright eyed and bushy tailed as soon as a gunslingin' Donegal rode into town. Donegal were cranky for February above in Ballybofey the Sunday before and Kerry took note and seemed keen to get their retaliation in first it appeared.
 That game may have slaked their thirst for blood for a whileeen.
 Hopefully we can get a couple of wins now. Twould be nice to be heading up to Longford for the last game as a semi-final shoot-out rather than a relegation must-win.

Looks like Mayo could be heading into last 3 rounds without any points on the board. Monaghan unlucky not to take anything from Dublin. Last years game was a testy affair. Mayo were bullied to an extent in last quarter in Ballybofey and that won't have gone unnoticed.

Must say I'm really into this. Never saw some of that footage in part 1 before. Great stuff. The nephews looking up at the cup in the national school is great stuff.

GAA Discussion / Connacht Final. Mayo v Sligo. July 19.
« on: June 22, 2015, 04:29:07 PM »

Venue is Mayo's call this time. Sligo went with The Hyde in 2012.
I'm not sure Mayo would go with Hyde Park, even if it was available.
Mayo are trying to get Sligo to come to McHale Park. What Sligo will demand remains to be seen. A number of future matches played in Mark. Park if they are not finals? A cash incentive? The game would attract as many as 10k more in Castlebar. Say an extra 100.000 euro in the coffers. Sligo can of course tell us to feck off and hold out for a neutral venue.

GAA Discussion / Derry v Mayo. Celtic Park. March 8th 2015.
« on: March 02, 2015, 11:35:37 PM »
A must win for Derry if they re going to stay in Div.1. I think they will get it. Their need is greater and we ve not done so good against Derry teams down the years. A win here and we d find it hard to avoid the dreaded semi-finals.
I have to say I don t understand Derry. Eoin Bradley, Chrissy McKeigue, Fergal Doherty, Mark Lynch, James Kielt are top players but seem to be missing a lot. Injuries?

GAA Discussion / Why close the Mhaigheo/ Ciarraí thread?
« on: September 08, 2014, 12:21:54 AM »


The winner of this could be in the semis. Mayo coughed up a healthy points advantage in last few minutes v Cork but still we should be happy enough. We re not likely to be relegated after losing to a team that may well go down. Really we should be in semis already but there were reasons for the sluggish start so no worries.

With the Castlebar players available and Andy, Dillon and Chris Barrett also reported to be close we appear to be snowballing along nicely.

However I don t expect much change. Maybe Cuniffe will start but probably too soon for Barrett. The 3rd man in ff line is the only iffy one besides. A pity the obvious one is still not back in the reckoning.

GAA Discussion / Mayo V Cork. 16/03/13. McHale Park
« on: March 11, 2014, 10:15:21 PM »

Huge weekend of sport to look forward to.

Cork are always difficult and often formidable at all grades. I suppose that is what made the U21 win in 2006 a bit special.

Still I m expecting Mayo to win this at home. I posted a team on the last thread that I d like to see start. I m sure other people have a different take on things?

Any Cork posters about?

GAA Discussion / Mayo v Westmeath, Sunday March 9th.
« on: March 03, 2014, 07:14:21 PM »

We really need 2 more points here to give us a bit of breathing space. No doubt Westmeath will be desperate to take something out of the league and will have to give this a right go at home.

The Mayo selection will be interesting. With the U21s playing the following Wednesday Gallagher might be sitting this one out and maybe the plan is to give Doherty an extended run in the half forward line anyway.

I expect Higgins to remain at the back for the time being anyway in the continued absense of Barrett and Cuniffe and Vaughan and Seamie may be held in reserve for another couple of games yet.

Probably contrary to general consensus I liked the settling influence Andy had the last day and he probably needs all the game time he can get. On last days form Varley deserves to start and Freeman should be persisted with at ff.

Any thoughts?

GAA Discussion / Connacht U21 Championship 2014
« on: February 20, 2014, 08:55:30 PM »

Pre Lim:
Wednesday 12th March
A: Mayo v Roscommon Mac Hale Park

Semi Finals
Wednesday 19th March
Sligo v Winners A Mac Hale Park/Kiltoom

Saturday 22nd March
Leitrim v Galway Carrick on Shannon

Saturday 5th April

From a Mayo perspective it has been a very poor 4 years. Yet there was plenty of quality in the squads.
There appears to be a bit of class around again so it ll be interesting to see if the new management can improve on results. I believe we play Tyrone in Ballina on Sunday at 1.30 but with the weather the way it is that may change. Hopefully it goes ahead and we get a look.

GAA Discussion / Best team not to win an AI.
« on: September 25, 2013, 09:17:58 PM »

Was just looking at appearances in All Ireland finals (Mayo are in joint fifth with Meath behind Galway, Cork, Kerry and Dublin).

Then noticed some teams won and lost finals. However some never got over the line. The criteria I used was teams that either had multiple final appearances or at least one final and one semi in a different year.

I know I should not be torturing my fellow Mayomen with this type of stuff but I expect we re all fairly numb at this stage.

GAA Discussion / Mayo v Cork. McHale Park, Sunday 25 March. 2.30
« on: March 20, 2012, 03:26:06 PM »
We can expect a big improvement but Cork wont want to lose 2 on the bounce either. We looked very flat the last day and our confidence was shot long before the end so it s hard to know how we will respond to that drubbing. Physically we were dwarfed by Donegal and Cork are another big lot.

I hope Horan freshens the team up a bit. Limited if the u21s are still tied up but likes of Campbell and Conroy can hardly make things worse.

Size is a worry though. Half of Sunday s team were under 6'. Several of them well under. And it s not like they make up for it in bulk. A win and we could make the semis yet.

General discussion / Favourite Cartoon Series.

Probably been done before.

Just that my kids seem to enjoy the old ones the best. The stuff I used to watch - still do.

My favs are The Pink Panther[including The Inspector and Ant and Aardvark] and Foghorn Leghorn.

Should I be worried?

GAA Discussion / Top Scorer
« on: May 20, 2009, 12:48:41 PM »
Any ideas who will finish up top scorer in the championship 09? Think it was John Doyle last year. Michael Meehan looks one of the more likely ones.  Meehan plays London this weekend and should score heavily. You would expect Galway to have at least 4 games this Summer.
