Vaughan will hardly loose much sleep. If the only tactic is a high ball into the edge of the square to two players who are not fully fit, the ball will come back out fairly quick. And getting primary possession around midfield will be quite an ask. A high profile match though should see the players well up for the challenge but Mayo will have a point to prove after Galway defeat.

At least you didn't argue about the rest of the post!  Would Vaughan get on your Derry team?

Vaughan's primary position is, or was CHB, he wouldn't start in front of Chrissy. He also wouldn't start at 3 instead of young Rogers. But, a man with his experience, drive and football accuman would most certainly be accommodated  ;)

doubt I said or even implied the use of one tactic for the whole game

And getting primary possession around midfield will be quite an ask.

You're assuming the ball is going long. McKindless will hit the wide channels the vast majority of the time and of course how deep or high Mayo setup for our kickouts. Mayo themselves aren't really going long too often.

no shit Sherlock

All in all, a mixed bag  :D


Up Derry

They will go long against Derry. Our weakness there will be exploited at every opportunity. I remember Sherlock, but he didn't play for Mayo! Doire abú.

Have Derry named their team for the Mayo game yet?

On a different whim completely I see Jimmy's going
to be winning matches in China now

Mayo (All-Ireland SFC qualifiers Round 2A v Derry, 1/7/2017): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Chris Barrett (Belmullet); Colm Boyle (Davitts), Lee Keegan (Westport), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy), Tom Parsons (Charlestown Sarsfields); Fergal Boland (Aghamore), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber), Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen).

No Vaughan and no Lynch, so no fun there with a high ball.

All credit to Derry. A massive effort in normal time but just ran out of steam in extra time. I'm blaming nobody for the defeat but the question has to be asked,is mc kindness the answer to our goalkeeping problem and is he actually any better than postie?

He's young and we need to stick with him. His goalkeeping was very good, the problem was kickouts. The big problem there was our lack of midfielders, we had nobody to compete with parsons, the osheas and mayo seemed to be taller all over. We didn't seem to have worked on a few moves to allow players to run onto the ball and take it at chest height. There was a lot of promise in that derry display.

Didn't go down without a fight. Fair play to them today .

Great performance. Drew with last year's All Ireland finalists over 70 mins. Pity we didn't have the fitness to keep it going another 20 mins.

Goalkeeper done some very good and some very bad, the goal was a shocker, serious problems at midfield which didn't help his cause, and all year we have not played big mobile midfielders, don't care what anybody says Hollys a loss, to me the best possible midfield pairing in the country is Bradley and Cassidy with Holly backing them up, also its time we played  players in their best positions.

The best panel of players must get together to play for derry along with the up and cummers from 3 minor teams over the next few years. Also if we playing a big player at full forward, hes got to be mobile too, not sure there 1 in the county maybe colm mcgoldrick,

Derry left that one behind them today and even though Mayo shooting was poor Derry did prove they can compete, so we need to look at having the best players available, best management available with tactics, we were way too open today, and some players need diet / gym plans (probably already get) to improve their fitness, some carrying too much weight / muscle, others not muscled enough.

The years over but its not looking as bad as it was 4 weeks back,

'Ah they went down fighting' Is everybody happy now. What we don't have is a panel of men committed to Derry. Of course Barton will get the push whilst we talk up the new manager meanwhile inspirational leadership from our captain will be forgotten and then next year when the same problems arise, we will us the lame excuse of blaming the new manager. Well I am going to blame the players, this evening proved that we can compete at a higher level, same as last years qualifiers proved. Well now boys run back to your clubs and watch the other counties men show you how its done. You can leave the dummy tits on the way out and get them back next January

I'd agree with all of this though I thought McAtamney was doing rightly. Parsons is a fine footballer, would probably be the complete midfielder if he could kick snow off a rope!

Young McKindless did make a few great saves, but he'll want to forget a few of those head staggers. He's a young pup and should have stuck to the basics rather than over cooking the thing. There was a stage in the 2nd half, early on, after a poor kick out, you knew by the look of him that his head was gone. He'll come good

The running game is energy sapping, and a good few boys put in some serious yards and going beyond the 70 mins was a bridge too far. Rogers, both McKaigues, young Keenan (such a class footballer), Lynn, McFaul and Heavron really took the fight to Mayo. That game will stand to Mayo as the rounds progress. The green shoots of recovery......

PS: by fcuk but Aiden OShea gets some protection. When a Derry man got within a mere of him Deegans hand was up for advantage! Would drive you mental. I'd like to see Mayo win the AI but I can't see them doing in all honesty. It's not down to the age profile, but they don't have a spread of players to hit the target from just inside the scoring zone. They passed continuously when the shot was on.

Someone can now start a profile name Castlebar100.. Would there have even been a hundred Derry folk there today? Couldn't have been much more

Anyhoo... Roll on the club championships
