Up there with the worse ever Mayo league result however i don't want to take away from Cavan who were brilliant on the day on and off the field.

Cavan goal before half-time was massive - Cavan hadn't really played well up until then but they looked a different side in the second half.

The worrying thing for Mayo is that Cavan had 4 goal chances - th

If Cavan beat Kerry, Kerry could well be needing something from their last game against Tyrone to stay up.

One plus for Cavan is that while their score difference isn't great, they have a head-to-head win over Mayo and have the possibility of getting one against Kerry, which boosts their chances of survival a fair bit, especially as those are the two teams they are likeliest to end up level on points with. The way the table is means that it's far likelier that head-to-head will determine the 2nd relegated team rather than score difference (which only comes into play if 3 teams or more end up on level points)

Well done Cavan. Had a plan! Kept their discipline and deserved their victory. Mayo started well and looked like they could pull away in the first half. The lack of tactical awareness in dealing with the situation was worrying. This game was a carbon copy of the Monaghan game and only a fool would have not expected such a game. We chased the game game when we were leading by 5 points! Very naive! We should have sat back and played them at their own game. Mayo player looked very tired near the end.

I've never seen so many balls "over the top" as cavan played. Looking at the dublin goal in particular they maybe targeted this as a weakness?

Still i imagine only 2 or 3 of that starting forward line will start for mayo come summer.

When Gearoid is on song lads he's top quality, he stroked over that 50+ metre free like it was nothing. Cavan were composed and stayed in the game even when it looked like Mayo couldn't miss. Martin Reilly's pass to Mossy who caught it one handed and popped over was a sweet piece of play. McVeety was industrious. And Joe Dillon, don't think he's played all year? Came on and sealed it. Did the same thing in an U21 Championship game against Monaghan in 2013, an excellent cameo.

We may still get relegated but we've put in a performance to get a win with our backs to the wall and given ourselves a chance of surviving. If we go down we'll have gone down with a fight. Fair play to the lads and to McGleenan.

Anyone else think the ref rode Cavan a bit? Clerkin was definitely fouled by Vaughan and I'd like another look at the 'foul' by McVeety before the goal....

No, its not like either side had a bucket full of kickable frees.

He did us for 1-1, the free out for the goal was a joke however he was very good ref in general.

Good post. When are we going to learn? The exact same thing also happened in the championship against Galway last year. We need to get a lot a smarter and realise when to sit back and when to push forward. Today, we were consistently hit with morale sapping counter attacks as we pushed forward at the wrong times. We went a point up with 15 minutes to go, had a home crowd behind us and still didn't have sufficient game management to see the game out. Worrying.

Our lack of goals is also a major concern. In the first half, the Cavan keeper botched a short kick out. The type of thing that has killed us over the last few years, yet we go straight for the point when presented with the opportunity. Well done Cavan, they took their chances when they came.

They may as well rename D2 the Connacht League.

Good game by Cavan especially in the last 1/4.

Afaics the disallowed goal looked legit, but I didn't get a 2nd viewing.
Mayo players just seemed to give up  in the added time, just didn't want to make the effort.

Maybe Mayo did a lot of heavy training during the week.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Maybe they did a bit of training on Friday afternoon after the parade.
