In a real fight here now. Kirby doing very well, is it 4 points he has?

Keegan with another.
Some lovely points being kicked off the outside of the boot today.

Dara McVeety a great wee player. Can Cavan hold on?

Inter-county footballers are well able to kick points from range when they don't have a little voice in their head saying, "Don't shoot, play the percentages".

Some good footballers on that cavan side. Unsure they will hold on though. Mckernan very comfortable on both feet.

Is enda varley on mayo panel?

It's all very well the Cavan line shouting "Keep ball", but don't do it in your FB line.

brilliant game there. some great point kicking from both sides. cavan were excellent, committed alot of men forward when they got the ball and fully deserve their 2 points. well done.

Disappointed but not shocked.

Once again our lack of scoring forwards came back to haunt us, don't even think we created one goal chance in the game. That about says it all. We were so one dimensional in our forward line. Kevin Mac seems afraid to shoot, he worked his backside off, but forwards are supposed to score.

I am afraid we could be bound for Div 2, unless we beat Donegal, cannot see us beating tyrone away with current squad.

When the penny drops with Rochford & Co. that the missing link is the complete absence of pace in the forward line, Mayo will be some team.
It's not about having lads that can kick a point.
There are plenty of lads who can kick a point in that forward line.
It is incredibly hard to do so however when you can't put any distance between yourself and the fella marking you.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Cavan football gets a much needed shot in the arm and for the new managerial project, a big boost. Very solid step forward and by my reckoning, our first win over an out and out top tier side since...well actually I can't remember the last comparable scalp. Great stuff. Hope they fight like demons now to stay up.

Terrible home record continues. Sucked into a battle now. We'll see if the players are good enough to get us out of it.

Perfectly good goal disallowed. Plus Clerkin fouled not given and Mayo went up and got point. Should have being more comfortable.
