Where do people get these notions without any looking back through the years , its just silly beggars stuff.

I have followed Mayo since I was knee high,.im now 40 . To just use one off games and presume then pre 2011 we had poor support is simply false.

Always have bigger crowds than galway , they are pure useless in comparison, they couldnt even take our support in 97/99 , mayo supporters left outside of tuam . 1989 v Tyrone , 1996 1997 1998 1999 , never have I seen crowds like the ones at Mayo games in Connacht them years  since . Maybe 08 and 06 were close enough come to think of it . 7:3 ratio Mayo/Galway.

Mayo have always had fantastic support , of course there has been games like vDown 12, Cork in 11 & 0? In qf s and a few more but overall magnificent numbers .

Musha, Larry, a mhac, success has made us lazy and complacent.

Breheny blowing bullshit about them today in the Rag.

Makes a change. Usually he's the first to stick the boot in.
Hes a terrible journalist. Talk about a bullshitter.

Backed the losing horse when the players ousted Anthony Cunningham. Never wrote about him being wrong over it.

Yeah, would agree on all that attendance wise.  Anyway, really looking forward to the probable 2 tilts at the Dubs.  We all know our deficiencies at this stage but the present management and squad should learn a lot from playing easily the best team we have seen in quite a while  - its a relatively young squad so I dont see us carrying too much scar tissue into the championship even if the results go the way most pundits expect.

Our manager hasn't always shown himself to be a particularly good or rapid learner; maybe this will be turn for the different.

Juve gave a masterclass the previous week of how to soak up pressure and hit on the counter, that's the style Jose likes and tries to replicate at Manu.
Problem is Smalling, Lindelof, Bailly, Jones, Roho aren't Chiellini or even close to it and Jose hasn't really made an effort to buy a high end defender.
He then spunks big money on Sanchez and Pogba (A) because he can and (B) the fans initially think its great and it appeases them when the see what the Arabs are buying next door.

Jose is caught between two stools and is making a mess of it.

But.. but... but I thought Shaw was going to be the next great English defender when he was signed, the media told us so. When it turned out he was an unfit crock, Lindelof, who must have been world class because MU had been pursuing him for several seasons, was brought in. Looks like he's a dud now too. Pogba is a world class midfielder, but not at OT. Where's it gone wrong?

Last night was reminiscent of some of the great OT nights under SAF, after the latest mid-tier continental outfit had passed his team silly. A usually puce and almost-incoherent Ferguson would serve up more entertainment at the post-match interviews than what had been witnessed on the field.

Phone will be ringing in De Gea's house later on. Long distance from Madrid.

He'd care more about GIB than NI.
He reminds me of someone

Everytime I see Buffoon Boris, the song 'Big Rock Candy Mountain' starts playing my head.

Really enjoyed the show featuring Lar Corbett last night....quite an intense young man lol

Read his autobiography, quite a character!

Not the sharpest tool in the box by all accounts.

I can't make my mind up whom is worse, May or Darlene.

May is inept and incompetent but, I think, well-meaning and trying to do the best she can with the cards dealt her.
Darlene is simply an idiot but is working hard at being even dumber than man (woman) has ever gone before.
Is Kate Hoey a viable compromise candidate?
Little help...

There was always this danger. Apartheid was all about white control, law and order. Black rule was/is in danger of becoming tribal and feudal, with a lot of self-interests rearing up. Badly in need of a unifying leader a-la Mandela.

Flippant or not, you are correct in your judgement, as history has shown many times that nothing is won in April.. (which is when the league final is scheduled for  ;))

Recent history has shown that the 2017 hurling league winners used it as a springboard for a very successful championship run. ;)  ;)

Wing-backs very effective too.
 Moorefield thoroughly useless, poxed to get out of Leinster.
