I know i'm a bit old school here but can someone please tell me why all forwards are afraid to shoot from 30-45m out, this is from all the games in general. Are forwards told not to shoot unless it's in front of the this a % thing?. you see guys in what i think is a scoreable position but they won't shoot and recycle the ball across and back and across and back and across and back before someone gets dispossed and the counter attack starts...WTF. You're a County footballer, get within 30-45m and pop the the ball over the bar. Even at club level I played with guys who didn't think twice about shooting from those ranges and hardly ever missed...Maybe the footballer is being replaced with an athlete now and fitness/strength is preferred to a proper footballer...

In Mayo if James Carr was doing what he is doing in the James Horan era he would be getting subbed. He takes some wild shots but he makes up for them by scoring a good percentage, at least his wild shots go over the line and not into the goalies hands. I think the answer is somewhere between coaching players to retain possession util the shot is almost guaranteed and the players themselves afraid of messing up.

Having attending the Armagh v Mayo game it was clear that day that unless ye changed something tactically then ye become very beatable. Ye should use the forward mark more and press up on opposition kickouts more, instead ye leave this too late into matches. Ye would've beaten us if ye pressed up on our kickouts with 10 mins to go rather than 5.

Meath aren’t getting physical enough with Dublin here, standing off them, poor considering this ref is favouring defenders.

Well unless you're holding back on signing with a tour, I think you are ok and you probably don't need to alert Portugal that you're on your way!

Well when I do sign and when I win the fedex I’ll invite you over to celebrate the $18,000,000 win rather than having a wee glass of wine in the locker room on my own.

Anyone watch Full Swing on Netflix?

I’m not really spoiling it much by saying that there is no truer saying in life than money doesn’t buy happiness.

Golf is an individual sport but for me the last clip from the last episode (cleverly set up by Netflix I reckon) is poignant.

I much prefer to be hacking around at the weekend and having a few trips to Portugal on the beer every year than becoming one of those rich  lifeless robots.

Maybe in time we will have smart socks that measure the steps and message the ref automatically to his ear piece

Roscommon were poor,  but probably should have won it. Keeper had a shocker for kick outs, worth at least 3 points to Mayo,we handed them a goal. Referee bought all the usual cynicism from Mayo, he was awful.
The only time he should be let near a whistle again, is when he goes to a rave.

You must be on E tabs yourself

Conor Cox should be on a soccer field. Thank Christ the ref didn’t fall for it. What was the hop ball for below in the corner? I think that passage of play led to the second Roscommon goal…

The subs weakened us and strengthened the Rossies. McStay better figure out a way to avoid a league final.

I understand why it's a bone of contention but why is this a forbidden discussion amongst mayo fans? I raised the question with privately and got shot down in the same manner.

Why does it keep happening to mayo? Or why doesn't it happen to Kerry or Dublin?

On 67 minutes reape is brought up and kicks a score to put us 5 up. It being from a free, surely there is no better signal to say no is the time to do everything to slow the game down - that's fall over with any contact, foul around the middle, take ages on our own frees, retain possession over taking on needless shots, put 15 men behind the ball. It just doesn't seem to be the mayo way and it feels like something we just can't seem to learn.

It’s clearly not a forbidden discussion with yourself and your alias’s so you can work away and argue away with yourself once you’ve your homework finished for Mammy

Not much “analysis” of the games really.

Here’s another one. Able bodied men “fleeing” Georgia for asylum here.

Anyhow, the narrative is starting to change but it’s still difficult to comprehend that when 90% of the population believe the present system is wrong and when 90% are against government policy that not one senior elected representative (some local councillors have tried) have put their head above the parapet and spoken out for change or some improvement.

Genuine question, if you’re Walsh, as great as it would be to win a county championship of any sort, never mind a provincial and and all ireland, would it not feel seriously hollow winning it with lads you barely even know in comparison with lads you grew up with?

I could never play for another club like he’s done.

Agree to this to a certain extent.

Maybe if the lad was in the area for a few years then somewhat acceptable, for example, Bundie Aki does appear to be genuinely proud to be Irish now.
