We'll be in the black and red jersey next day out

Good idea. Kerry can't beat Down.
They couldn't beat Tyrone when they wanted to either

Who does Keegan come in for? Hard to drop Vaughan after yesterday. Will be interesting to see if he plays MF or at wing back

Would be daft to read much into yesterday match where Roscommon who gave a non show and gave up easily. Keegan a starter Vaughan a good impact sub to bring on.  The Kerry inside line is as good as any Paul Geaney,Kieran Donaghy,James O’Donoghue and holding them to a low score will go a long way to beating Kerry.

Kerrys strength in depth is better than Mayos, so i think Mayo will need a healthy lead approaching the last 10 minutes to topple them.

I'm of the opinion that Donaghy is not the player to worry about for Mayo but Geaney is. Dublin and Tyrone have shown over the years how to mark Donaghy and i think Mayo have the players capable of keeping him quiet. Geaney on the other hand is a real handful and will take some watching.
Donaghy is getting on a bit and isn't as mobile now and is only gonna play about 50 minutes whereas Geaney and O Donaghue will be on the go for the full 70.

Nobody gives Tyrone a chance either. A Tyrone mayo final would be some turn up for the books. What odds? Mayo would love Tyrone in a final.

Unfortunately, cant see past a kerry win. Not reading into yesterdays game at all. On top of that i just cant see mayo seeing out a win against kerry. Beat them in 96 only time weve beat them in 60 years i think. Hope im wrong

Mayo need to try something different for this however I've seen nothing thus far to suggest that Rochford is much of a tactician.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Last year his team brought a brilliant Dublin team to the wire , twice .

That didn't happen by accident .

Mayo would love Tyrone in a final.

Just like they loved Donegal in 2012? Mayo are clearly 4th best out of the 4 teams left standing.

Massive work rate was a huge component.
Don't recall anything noteworthy from a tactical perspective.

140+ mins of football against that Dublin team in Croke Pk and only a solitary point divided them. Hope the rest of the country are taking note!

Yeah a lot of eggs have gone into yesterdays basket.

Was on the Luas yesterday after the game. An middle aged Kerry man turns to me and says I'd love to see Mayo win an All Ireland if they beat Kerry. To which I replied What do you mean If?. And suddenly the plámásing was over. Do you think Mayo will beat Kerry? the Kerry man replied looking disgruntled. It was a look, I had seen in Limerick three years ago.  I smiled and he realised I was having him on. But the mask had dropped and he no more than any other county could not care less if we won Sam (and why should they?).
