Oh well. It wasn't to be was it?

Especially when you butcher so many chances when you're on top like we did yesterday in the third quarter. Shocking the amount of kicks into the keeper's hands and bad wides. Once Kerry got over that storm, you all know the rest. I'm not sure why we didn't double up on Clifford, the way Kerry doubled up on whoever Mayo had alone inside.

I was extremely disappointed in COC yesterday, and indeed he hasn't been and more than likely won't be the same player pre-injury. I said having him, Coen and AOS would be a speed advantage to Kerry, but Coen and AOS didn't do too bad at all. Ruane had another poor game, as did Kevin Mc, Loftus. I thought Carney snd Flynn the best of the starting forwards as Carney was lively and showing well. Kerry forwards greater than ours, ours were probably the worst of the weekend.

They brought Ciarán Mac to be forwards coach. Either he's not doing things properly, or Horan isn't taking on board the tactics employed by him.

Where do Mayo go from here? More than likely a fallow period as the warriors become less and less.

Will tickets for the semi be through the clubs or ticketmaster. Looking at potential triple header with minor final. If Armagh win today it'll be a easy sell out!

The minor final will probably be on the Sunday in CP before the second semi-final, especially when the Tailteann Cup is on the Saturday.

I'm lucky to have the 'luxury' of having a sister living in the capital so I came up last night after the minor game.

Safe travels to all the fans travelling today from all four counties involved. On the game itself, I have tried to imagine a scenario of a Mayo win, but I can't. I don't expect our lads to have a league final flop either, but simply Kerry's forwards are better than ours and will probably do the business that bit better. We'll probably know after 10 minutes or so how it'll pan out, i.e. if Mayo are trailing by 2 points and fighting for every ball that goes their way, then it could be interesting. If Mayo find themselves in a 5 or 6 point deficit, then it could be worse. If Mayo are 5 or 6 points up, then anything I say above is irrelavant in this paragraph. ;D

A lot of people from other counties rate Keegan very highly. Everyone in Mayo does. I just hope it's not his last day in the Green and Red (or black and blue as it'll be today). I'm not suggesting he will retire after this year, but time and tide waits for no man. Neither does the chance of winning an All-Ireland medal. Up Mayo.

50,874 today

A guess at breakdown...........

850 from Cork
650 from Clare
15,000 Derry
32,000 Dubs
2,300 Neutral

I'd say you're being very generous with your neutral number.

Another first game of a double header infront huge swathes of empty seats. This game should have been in portlaoise or navan.

Lots of derry supporter missed the start of the game.
Huge tailbacks in Armagh, the toll on the motorway and there were reports of the main drumcondra road being closed.
Apparantly there's a Gay Pride march in Dublin tonight too so more than usual traffic.

Little to no traffic in around CP though.

The thing that irked me more than that though was why was there no national anthem before the Derry V Clare game, but for Dublin they had the band out and the anthem. Where's the equality in that!

Amhrán na bhFiann is always played before the 2nd match.

Is there a rule that the National Anthem can only be played once per day in any venue?

There is surely.

Sorta coming away from my previous predictions.. Galway must be loving the hype Armagh are getting..

If Armagh were playing Mayo as Connaught champions would they be as confident?

They would be.

Coen, AOS and COC all starting together gives Kerry a speed advantage.

seems all the people talking about the conspiracy theory about holding back best tickets are right.

loads of good hogan and cusack stand tickets available now

Unsold season ticket/county board returns maybe

Slightly annoying if you've bought a ticket in some nether-region

Wouldn't want to bank on this happening again for the semi-finals, a very inexact science

Clubs, therefore County boards I assume didn't get tickets

Could go straight knockout and the 8 teams that get knockout in the first round go into a 3rd level tournament called the tailteaan plate or somehthing but there would  have to be an incentive to win that but that would probably be a step too far to have  a  3rd tier competition

Could there be a Junior Championship of:

New York, Waterford, Kilkenny, London, Carlow, Scotland, Yorkshire, Lancashire, Warwickshire, Hertfordshire, Gloucestershire.

Carlow beat Tipp in the Tailteann Cup this year. Hard to go drawing lines for a third tier to be honest.
