Quote from: Puckoon on June 22, 2024, 10:46:36 PMDid any other Tyrone folk emotionally compromised watching that, Hoping for Derry to kick on and win - because of the Philistine antics of the odious personality this tread is named after?

Theres definitely an element of that for sure. Part of me thinks it would be hilarious to watch him squirm if they won the whole thing.

if they won the whole thing, he'd be fighting the stewards to get out on the pitch and lift the cup himself. he's an attention seeker.

Quote from: yellowcard on June 22, 2024, 11:43:51 PMThat was a pure bottle job from Mayo. Playing at home against a team bereft of confidence, that was an awful way to finish the season. Playing that way Derry will go no further.

Yes, never a truer statement - Imagine losing to this Derry team on penalties. And Mayo riding on the crest of a wave after their fabulous draw against Dublin the week before that meant diddly squat. Complete Bottlers and should I add Flaky.

hardly riding on the crest of a wave. they were visibly devastated after drawing that match. that's why it was set up perfectly for derry.

Quote from: Sportacus on June 22, 2024, 10:03:44 PMAll the Derry wans raging about the set up for the past month.  Are they stuffed or plucked tonight?

those problems aren't gone anywhere. they pulled it out of the bag today as a matter of pride, but they will be beaten comprehensively next weekend. mayo were never going to be the team to put them away.

Mayo were hot favourites this evening against Derry and a harder draw than Monaghan....Roscommon...and Louth...

Great stuff...

said it at the beginning of the week that it was the ideal draw for derry. the perfect game for them to retain dignity. mayo are flaky as f**k and they were visibly dejected after drawing with dublin. they put so much energy, mentally and physically, into winning that match and came up short. they were always gonna be there for the taking this week and the longer they left derry in it, the more likely it was that derry would win. derry will be facing the same dilemma as mayo next weekend - they spent so much energy winning today. they'll be bet next weekend.

Right away and dry your hole n let us enjoy the night FFS! The grim.

enjoy it!!! i've no horse in the race. just calling it as i see it. wouldn't mind seeing derry win the competition outright, would be a great story after all the whispers and supposed drama we've been hearing about

Quote from: Itchy on June 22, 2024, 09:18:02 PMFirst time since year 2000 that Mayo are out of championship in June.

We'd have been out of the Championship in June anyway even if we won today!

Making too much of turn around. Cavan won an Ulster in 2020 playing 4 games in 4 weeks in winter. If Derry win next weekend they'll be talking about match fitness and momentum.

derry will be minced in croke park next weekend. i didn't see anything to suggest they'll actually genuinely challenge for an all ireland. they're still just holding it together. tipped them to win this weekend because mayo are the flakiest team in the championship and frankly their younger players have a very soft mindset. they are fine when they have to claw back a deficit but can't for the life of them defend a lead or close out a game - it's like they're actually afraid of winning. they have regressed in terms of mentality. they did the same against cork last year. they don't have a killer mentality. tell ya what, there's not a young player on that mayo squad that has the mentality of a lee keegan or colm boyle.

Derry have turned it around and won't be minced by anybody

they literally didn't even play well today. mayo just did a typical mayo. the turnaround didn't help them either. derry will lose next weekend.

Quote from: armaghniac on June 22, 2024, 06:58:36 PMMayo a bit lethargic and poor on the final pass.

very sloppy and don't even seem mentally there at all. could see clearly from them last weekend, how dejected they were at the final whistle that they really wanted to beat dublin, they did not want to be in this position and it's showing now in this performance.

I seen nothing at the weekend that shows Derry have sorted the mess out. Against very middling opposition they were lucky not to cough up another few ridiculous goals, the confidence was on the floor and only a late goal saw them to safety. McStay seemed very focused on the next challenge after drawing with the Dubs while Harte is going over nonsense about critics and empty vessels.. a tactic he uses to employ a siege mentality. Can't see  Derry win...

it's the perfect draw for derry. if they'd drawn someone else like a tyrone or a louth, i actually wouldn't be surprised to see them limp out. i just think it would be impossible for a game like this against opposition like mayo to not get the blood pumping for a team of derry's type, no matter what's going on behind the scenes. perfect opportunity to get the heads together and develop a siege mentality. they're going to be dismissed all week and it's just setting the stage.

further, mayo looked very dejected at the end of their game against dublin. i think they were really, really disappointed to not win that game and showed incredible naivety in the last 20 seconds. there's still an element of the flake in mayo, i wouldn't trust them at all to get the job done even against a team that is supposedly in a shambles in the dressing room.

Jez, you are talking up and talking down a fair bit there. Personally I think that both will be goosed for their game the following week against a rested Kerry/Dublin/Armagh/Donegal. So Saturdays result is of little consequence in the scheme of things. Derry have been flat now for 2 months.

didn't say either would do anything the following week. in fact i don't think any of the teams in the prelims will get a sniff of an all ireland final to be quite honest. i just think derry have a kick in them yet, there was some fighting talk from their camp last weekend post-match, and i don't think mayo are the type of team that effectively puts the opposition away early and firmly enough and once derry get a sniff of blood, they could easily grow into the game.

O'Shea being substituted was the wrong call in my view. He was one of Mayo's better players, won lots of ball. He's an easy scapegoat, lots of others offered nothing.

agree. couldn't understand that decision.

mayo don't have the personnel. their midfield wiped again in croke park.
