Mayo don't look like the same team as they did in Connacht at all. Sloppy passing, getting cleaned in midfield. Still flashes of good play or individual moments but very disjointed in general

Orange jerseys will show up very well on TV. The Qatar World Cup producers are all over the Netherlands first game for the colour alone. 

Ye'll definitely win so

OUch, that hurt. Bad when Varadkar making you look a tool

nowhere in that does Varadkar make him look like a tool

Absolutely does. The 1000 pound dinners lol. Class

Absolutely does not. The fact that he talks about vagabonds that live in a caravan says everything about him tho

Fear seems to be a big FG man.

Key issue here is the current government is doing nothing about the current cost of living crisis.  They will sit on their hands until the next budget 4 or 5 months away and put their fingers in their ears until such time.

Playing into the opposition hands.

Varadkar created more publicity for SF by his childidh outburst. He needs a course in PR asap.

There’s a certain level of either wilful ignorance or stupidity involved there. This was the tactics they used previously and it backfired on them. People got sick of the obvious attempts to twist anything going on into a stick to beat SF with. Same happened up here with SDLP imo. SF have enough f**k ups and genuine issues  that could be easily attacked as and when they happen without manufacturing ones. It’s too forced and transparent and voters got turned off by it.

So Varadker's criminal issues are fair game but Doherty's aren't?

So a drunken misdemeanor on a night out when Doherty was a youth is of more concern and significance to the public than the incoming taoiseach being actively under criminal investigation for misconduct in public office while he was in his last stint as Taoiseach?

F**k me. Some of you SF bathers really need to take a tep back and pick your battles a bit better.

Add up all those SFers though, they're some rabble

there's some crowd of Biffos at it though!
Fair play to them, great to see a former great, yet small, county mixing it with the bigger teams again, even if it is only u17

Never lost a Qualifier game there as far as I know.

Correct. Terrible record in Connacht champ in last few years, but good qualifier record although there were a few close runs like Derry and Armagh

Disgusting behaviour. You'd need to have a warped mind and live amongst warped people to find that in any way acceptable, never mind funny.

By the way, it's on RTE, and it's hardly fitting to use this as an opportunity to take swipes at them.

Key thing about it is you have to scroll down a good bit to find it.

There's much slagging of Banty but I'm not sure how much actual influence he has on the game plan. In his first "era" he brought in the Armagh heavyweight Paul McGirl and now has Donnie Buckley. Banty, if left to his own devices would never have 3 up front against a Gallagher team or against Mayo in the league have a team set up to with attractive play to create many goal scoring chances.  Last year could/should have been our year at least to get to an AI final. I'd say Buckley is calling the shots on the game plan. My only gripe is considering Drew Wylies effectiveness against Dublin, I wonder what the reason is to exclude him from the team.
If Mayo would be so hospitable as to leave a bit of space for Mohan, McCarron, and McManus  to do their thing, then I'd be hopeful. Considering our (what passes for) history this is the type of game with the potential to bring out our best.
Any Mayo supporter pessimism will have absolutely no effect on the Mayo performance.

Don't worry, that is a given when playing Mayo!

I think Mayo will win this, cant understand the negativity from their supporters.... it's not like them to talk their team's chances down lol.

Monaghan are the type of team that should suit Mayo especially with Banty as manager.

Plenty of Mayo supporters talked themselves up prior to the All-Ireland final against Tyrone last year and few haven't posted since out of embarrassment after their pre-match talk?

It's not embarrassment.  People genuinely thought Mayo would win last years final, and I don't think that was some crazy belief - there were plenty of arguments that could be made in their favour, and some obvious ones against!
But the aftermath of that loss has been long and isn't over yet. The appetite for it seems to be gone from a lot of supporters, and certainly the belief that we will get over the line any time soon seems to be buried.
I'm not quite as pessimistic and the general consensus could change with a couple of good wins in the next few weeks, but I doubt it.

In the league game in Clones, Monaghan hit a lot of bad wides and dropped shots short, so it seems to be a bit of a habit.  Mayo almost didn their usual party piece of gifting them a goal with last play, but got away with it.
Mon could easily have won that game, so will be interesting to see if either team has managed to eradicate the usual failings.

Most definitely, warm balls/cold balls but I smell a rat
Don't see why tho? Surely they'd have wanted 4 D1 teams v 4 D2 teams to make the next round of Qualifiers potentially more 'glamorous' & exciting. Who is the conspiracy against? 🤔

Exactly - why would they want two of the big hitters out this early in favour of keeping 2 div 2 teams in it, none of which have big support?

Nearly every game sold out 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣



Not that I care, but are you unaware soccer has seen a huge crowd increase post Covid or just playing the thick?

You're talking shite.  Tallaght stadium capacity is 8k and the average attendance for  Rovers game in 2022 is 5k. They're by far the best supported team.

SHAMROCK ROVERS
The Hoops finished 2019 with the highest average attendance (3,445) and have continued apace in 2022 with an average so far of 5,318.
