Mayo / Re: Mayo Club Football.

Davitts beating Moy Davitts by double scores the shock of the weekend in the SFC. Tubber showed why they are champions, better footballers than we have and that bit cuter on the ball. Thought Ballina would have edged Aghamore but ended in a draw. Mitchells beat Westport was no surprise. Would have tipped Ballagh to have beaten Charlestown too.

Meanwhile in the IFC Ardnaree beat Cross in Cross is probably the big talking point although nobody is surprised by the result.

Time to sack Ole and get a 'bounce' from a new manager. Continue this for every 4 or 5 games until the players start to play shit again and bang, 'bounce' our way to the league title.  ;D :-X

Mayo got a centre of excellence in the middle of a bog
Oh, sorry Connacht got the centre
And soon they'll have a giant bouncy castle

Mayo got huge funding for McHale park
AND a bailout when they blew the budget

A lot of money spent on those projects

Still paying back the bailout. Clubs are I mean. I do believe there's another centre of excellence in the pipeline although I'm not sure when.

Back to Loose Cannon's point, amalgamations are happening left, right and centre in Mayo at underage. We even had a situation 2 years ago having Ballyhaunis and Aghsmore joining up at minor. Terrible indictment on Ballyhaunis imo.

Gaelic life reporting that Ricey is in pole posiiton for us with a backroom team of Paul McIvor and Joe McMahon

Will he have more of an attacking mindset FermGael. I know you have to cut the cloth to suit your needs and all that, but every Fermanagh person into GAA I know wasn't impressed with the way you set up this year.

We've passed the point of no return unfortunately. We may have to pay corporation tax the same as the EU after Brexit in return. God help Ballina if Coke and Hollister shut.

I am surprised this thread is still going, By reading the posts on here it is still hurting, lots of complaints and excuses.

Anyone want to summarise the excuses here:

Cork   0-17           Mayo   1-11   
Meath 0-12           Mayo   1-9               (Draw)
Meath 2-9           Mayo   1-11               (Replay)
Kerry   0-13           Mayo   1-7   
Kerry   1-20           Mayo   2-9   
Kerry   4-15           Mayo   3-5   
Donegal 2-11           Mayo   0-13   

Dublin 2-12            Mayo   1-14   
Dublin 2-9           Mayo   0-15   
Dublin 1-15           Mayo   1-14   
Dublin 1-17           Mayo   1-16

Don't remember 1989, but my dad reckons John Finn's man played puck. And Anthony Finnertys's miss.

1996, draw, had Meath on the ropes for sure, then seemed to be afraid to go for the jugular. 1996 replay. McEnaney mistaking Colm Coyle for John McDermott. That and general shot selection trying to force another draw.

1997 - nothing scored for about 15 minutes. Wide after wide. No change from Holmes on Maurice Fitz.

2004, second quarter blitz from Kerry. Were lucky to beat Fermanagh in the semi so we should have known it wasn't going to be easy in hindsight.

2006... 2-4 down after 10 minutes. Impossible to recover.

2012. Donegal the better team. All Irelands aren't won in the first 10 minutes, but can be lost.

2013. Too many first half wides, Hennelys flap.

2016 draw. Did well enough. 2 own goals, what can you say. 2016 replay. Dublin were better than us on the day. However Hennelly made another clanger.

2017. Best performance I've seen by a losing team. Too many first half wides. 2013 went through my head at half time.

I've given up on seeing Mayo win an all Ireland. That won't stop me from going to matches watching the inevitable loss every summer.

The marketing team are happy to play the historic event card for this final. But that will wear off for next year and then win no.7 in 2021.
Ah, if we do 5, we won't do 6 in a row.
Gavin gone
Cluxton, Philly, Fitzy, Cian, MDMA, Andrews, Berno, Kev Mac retired
Kilkenny, Con and Costello going hurling
Fenton and Howard going travelling for a year

Hopefully Cooper, McCarthy, Jack, Small, Scully, Rock and Mannion will still hang around so we can give Leinster a lash at least, but don't be putting any money on 6 in a row!

Do you really expect Gavin to call time on it if they win in a fortnight? I see him being another Cody, Harte, Boylan who will be there for the next decade.

I agree. Sure hasn't he agreed to stay until 2021 at the very latest.

Competent first half. Great goal by Martial.

Or having a reliable cool headed goalkeeper and not missing free kicks in consecutive finals

There has never been a moment where Dublin were going to lose any of the games circa 2013-2017. There may have been the illusion. But it was only that. Full credit to the Dublin GAA and to headquarters for getting the full package and more out of their resources.

It will be a proud moment for GAA President John Horan next Sunday when he hands over the Sam!

Have you the hotel booked Tony?

Ftb will probably cite his lack of interest in intercounty football as the reason for this slip. ::)

All the talk is of the sending off as the turning point in the game. However Kilkenny were 8 points to 3 up at one stage before Tip got a couple of points and a cracking goal from O'Meara to complete the comeback. That goal had a big impact on the outcome of the game. I think the tip onslaught at the start of the second half was coming regardless of the sending off.

Agreed. Once Tipp settled in, Kk had no answer. Sending off didn't help Kilkenny though.

Why don't you all get onto the Tyrone county board and call for an objection? This is a joke of a thread that is taking mayogaablog status.

I assume you are Il Bomber Destro. If this was Mayo you'd be on about us not questioning the Mayo players instead of us blaming the ref.

Personally, I will be shouting for Dublin - I want their continued domination to force change.

Ok. What change do you want?

Dublin, but none of the above reasons

Wan't a GAA that is not all about Dublin GAA and Croke Park!

What is the reason you want Dublin to win?

Dire ear and Angelo have summed up my opinion.

This "Angelo" character is the new Syferus ::)

Syf's nemesis Il Bomber Destro you mean.
