MD McAuley joining the retired ranks.

1 word - Warrior
Glad you didn't use the word- Footballer

If Aidan O'Shea had his work rate Mayo won have 2/3 All Irelands the last decade.

Yeah Aido not putting more of a shift really made the difference.

I am not sure about whether Aidan O Shea could be said to not have the work rate but the athleticism is probably why he came up short when he met McCauley in Croke Park. The sight of McCauley running him around the pitch was something to behold.

Are yes mad MDMa was nowhere near the footballer  and I have never seen Aidan Want for Athleticism  or Effort or football ability.
he is why mayo got where they are to suggest hes a liability in anyway is silly.
Ive always said he is the one truly irreplaceable player mayo Have

O'Shea gets caught out badly in the athelticism stakes in big games. I think successive Mayo management teams have been very confused how to best utilise him and O'Shea has very, very limited footballing ability.

He is a battering ram of  a footballer who will draw frees and be a handful for teams but he hasn't developed one bit on the football side of the game since he broke through as a minor. He still routinely does idiotic things on the football pitch. Wasn't it Kieran Shannon who criticised him for refusing to work on his right foot when he was involved with Mayo?

Remember when they put him at full back against Donaghy?  :P

O She is another one of these players you can play anywhere but really play nowhere for too long.. That is not a criticism - he has never truly owned a role. However to say he is not one of the best Footballing characters of the last 10 years in the game and dosent deserve to win an all ireland medal is crazy. Like the O Connors, Keegan and others, Mayo deserve to be winning the All Ireland this year, and I for one will be cheering them on to their destiny.

Johnny Duane Galway.

Turns 30 on Monday, made his senior debut against Mayo in the semi-finals of the Connacht championship in 2011 – the same year he won an All-Ireland U21 title after the Tribesmen defeated Cavan at Croke Park.

He captain Galway minors in 2008 and also represented New York in the Connacht SFC in 2016. Two years later, the St James clubman would be back in the maroon of Galway as they captured the JJ Nestor Cup after defeating the Rossies at Dr Hyde Park.

His last appearance for his county came against Mayo in this year’s Connacht final at Croke Park, where he came on as a late substitute.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Never recovered from his horror injury of tearing three hamstring tendons from a bone with Sydney Swans down under.

Was a very good gaelic footballer before he left for Oz but like a lot of players before him, never got near those levels again upon his return. Both the injury and the demands of the AFL probably had a big part in that since his game was largely built on pace and power.
