Mayo v Cavan 19th March - MacHale Park
« on: March 13, 2017, 08:59:24 AM »
Hopefully the two weeks off will suit the Mayo team and there will be a backlash. Should win this game seeing as Cavan will be playing their 3rd game in 3 weeks.

Win the game guarantee safety and run the panel in the last two league games safe in the knowledge of no repercussions, really see who is up to it and who isn't. It could be an excellent opportunity to do something we haven't been able to do for a number of years.

Cavan only scoring on average 10 points a game Mayo should win this game comfortably. A NFL final is still up for grabs I would expect Rochford and his players to aim for that.

We'd need to win our last 3 games by 10/12+ points wouldn't we to get to the final?

Whatever about finals,2 points with a substantial improvement in performance fro the Dublin game has to be the very least we need to get out of Sunday. Cavan may be regarded in some quarters as a certain 2 points but I can see them causing us problems given how we tend to struggle against massed defences. The worry is that other than Clarke's shot stopping, defence, midfield or attack have not really clicked over the full 70 at all this year.

You would?

I would expect them to have a go at beating Cavan. If we do that, I'd expect us to be worried about nothing else but putting in good performances against Donegal and Tyrone. The distraction of a League final (that I could never see us winning) is the last thing we need. Anyway we have spent enough money going to Croke Park already this year.

Tyrone and Monaghan have played Dublin in a recent league final and semi final and got within one point of them. The more Croke park games the better for any team IMO and one trimming shouldn't frighten you away from that venue.

At the moment Tyrone are favorites to play Dublin in the NFL final however they have a tougher run in than Mayo with Donegal in Ballybofey who are hard to beat there and Kerry away who could be close to full strength by round 7.

Cavan on the way to division 2 and Donegal in transition are two games Mayo should be winning in MacHale park. The decider for a place in the final could well be the Tyrone v Mayo game in Omagh and I don't see Rochford throwing in a pile of inexperienced or untested players into that game.

Cavan will win this handy enough and launch a glorious escape from relegation. It will be like 48 all over again.

Entirely possible if we play like we did against Dublin.

Any team with ambitions of winning either national competition besides Dublin are only fooling themselves and wasting their members' hard earned cash chasing shadows.

The short final! Cavan led by 3-02 to 0-00 at half time!

So 31 Counties should just stop fielding teams at all??

The ones in three of the provinces can at least aim for the most pertigious titles actually up for grabs. Rest of Leinster is lost territory, sadly.

The sad reality is this year (and next, and next..) Carlow have nearly as much chance of winning Sam as supposed pure bloods like Kerry. Maybe Cork and Meath are ahead of everyone in losing interest in this sport.

The massed defence thing because Joe Brolly said it five years ago. We've no defensive plan and a blunt attack so Mayo should win pulling up.
