Personally I don't think he would make it at AFL.

He's obviously the best minor this last 20 odd years but physically I'm no so sure if he's suited as say someone like Mark O'Connor, Conor McKenna, Conor Glass.

Young Brown from Derry is a ready made aussie rules player.
Moreso than Clifford.

O'Shea had a lot of possession but all  he seemed to do was recycle it accrossthe field.  I thought he should have been played at FF and allowed to roam from there.

But If mayo could have scored another goal or 2 more points, they would have won the game.

Aidan's problem is that for all his size, he can't punch holes in a defence because he's too slow.

I thought Mannion was excellent again today.
Such a threat.
Dublin's best forward this year for me.

That's what happens when two teams go out to win a game instead of playing pass the parcel (sideways & backwards).

I'd say that's the hardest one yet to take for Mayo folks.
This time I genuinely thought ye had it.
I hope Vaughan doesn't get a hard time as he'll know himself it was a moment of madness.
An extra man for the finale of a game as tight as this would have made all the difference.
Chris Barrett was my MOTM with some of the best technical tackling I've ever seen.
Connolly made a massive difference when he came on, as did McManamon.
All in all, that was probably the best football final I've seen so fair play to both teams.

If it wasn't for social media, the vast majority of people would be blissfully unaware of his comments.

Are people not secure enough at this stage that they can comfortably ignore the likes of Doyle badmouthing the GAA?
He's not a fan, so what.
No need for anyone to get annoyed over it.

No such thing as a friendly, drive it into the f**kers.

They'll know all about it when they get to u-10.

I'm just trying to keep him out of the way.

I'd have the match ups as follows (assuming Dublin start Connolly & drop Scully):

Barrett on Rock
Harrison on Andrews (ideally Harrison @ FB)
Higgins on O'Callaghan
Keegan on Connolly
Boyle on Kilkenny
Durcan on Mannion

AOS drifting back into the HB line to help.
I'd target Mannion, O'Callaghan and Connolly with Mayo's best 'running' defenders in Durcan, Higgins & Keegan.
a) to keep up with them
and
b) to get them chasing back into their own half.

Keep Vaughan in reserve and see where he's needed.
Ideally he would come on for SOS in the 2nd half to partner Parsons.
Start AOS at 11 or 15 and bring him back out the field.

Where would you play AOS now?
I'd have him around midfield drifting back as opposed to HF drifting back.
The forwards are playing much better as a unit without him.

GAA Discussion / Re: Tyrone v Dublin - The return of the Jedi
« on: August 27, 2017, 09:20:12 PM »
A depressing day and a sobering day. Tyrone are a long way behind Dublin who just demolished our gameplan with relative ease. I was immensely impressed by them and have no complaints whatsoever and we were lucky that the margin wasn't greater. I think the analysis about what now for Tyrone is best saved for another day but I was very disappointed that we didn't press the Dublin kick out or at least try and push our defensive blanket further out the pitch. The Dubs pulled everyone back at times but at least they pressed beyond the 45 whereas we were far too deep. Sadly the game was over after the first goal and our lack of any plan B came back to haunt us. Well done Dublin, an exceptional team - when you are 10 points up and bringing on Flynn, McMannamam and Connelly with Brogan still on the bench then you know that things are fairly comfortable.

Favourite moment of the day was the great reception for Eric Lowndes. I didn't realise he was so highly regarded in Dublin.

Cult hero.
Great fans.

Mayo are very strong where Tyrone were very weak today.
If you let a team with decent forwards dominate the middle third and stroll up to your 45m line, you're on a hiding to nothing.
Dublin didn't have to defend today.
Mayo have demonstrated that they can physically go toe-to-toe with Dublin over 70 minutes.
Tyrone stood off Dublin and let them play.
Dublin will have to go up two gears in the final.
I'm not saying they won't be able to do that, I'm just saying that they are now massive favourites for the final.
That suits Mayo down to the ground.
