Was pity referee  ignored Lee Keegan off the ball antics on Sean Shea. If Peter Crowley done that to Aidan O'Shea wouldn't hear of that for the year.

Second post and you're dragging up a thread that hasn't been posted on in eighteen months. You'll need to try harder at your windups.

The key is to make a series of sensible posts before you go for the trolling, that way some people will believe you're serious

Table stays as it is right now, Arsenal up into 3rd.. That would be a phenomenal achievement this year if they can finish in 3rd.

Ramsey will be a loss, but makes sense from a business perspective. Still playing his heart out - nice change compared to some of the sharks we've given shirts to over the years.

Arsenal have a really nice run-in. Their next 5 games are against comfortable mid-table teams who don't really have a lot to play for.
Everton (9), Watford (10) Palace (13, not quite safe but might be), Wolves (7) & Leicester (8)
Last two games are against Brighton (currently 15) & Burnley (currently 17). Their fates could be sorted before these games.

Great news to wake up to this morning, will watch it back tonight when I get home from work.
Tis only the league for sure, but at the same time it is always good to win. Winning is a habit and that will stand to these players.

A successful league, which was made possible by picking up a couple of early wins. We had the luxury of playing a couple of fringe or completely new players right the way through, even giving James Carr his first senior start in the final.

By my count, we used 34 different players across the league, with 3 players featuring in all 8 games - Donal Vaughan, Aidan O'Shea, and Jason Doherty.

Still a long way to go, but seem to be in a better place than we have been at this time of year in quite a while.

An absolutely fantastic win today. I thought they all played well. Hennelly might be there for the year yet. Barrett, Harrison and Higgins take a bow, there was one stage they turned the ball over after doing it twice previously, and I said to myself if the forwards can start scoring we'll win. As for the half backs, effective if not overly starring. Vaughan did a great job on Moynihan. Midfield, I think we all can say Ruane is our find of the year anyway. AOS was brilliant once again. Half forwards - Boland had a very impressive first half. Doherty was Mayo's worst player on the pitch in my opinion. If he scored those two early misses, we'd see a different man. Diarmuid, excellent goal for the second one. McLoughlin was busy, usual self. Darren Coen wasn't too bad either. And fair play to James Carr took his debut in his stride, was very good. Subs all made a positive impact. Boyle's goal line clearance shows why he's so loved here in Mayo. Yes he's not the player he was and leaving him on the bench until 20 mins to go is the way forward. Treacy and Regan did well when they came on. Andy won a nice few balls too.

Right now, I don't give a sicín's if it's only the league. I wasn't in CP in 2001 when they last won it so I'm really, really happy with how the day went. Up Mayo.

P.S. up yours Martin Breheny, f**k you.


Is that just generally,or has he done/said something this week?

How many will Waterford and Limerick hurlers bring?
I'd imagine that you can expect about 40,000 between them!
Mayo should also have at least 20,000 but I will be very surprised and disappointed if there isn't a lot more.
That's because all of those counties have good bus and rail connections to Dublin. I wouldn't expect nearly as many from Kerry, whereas Limerick borders Kerry and it'd not nearly as inconvenient for Kerry supporters as Dublin.
If that's not all, our bucks usually play well in Croker. So I, for one, am happy with the venue.

Where do you live,  Lar?

Classy bitta point scoring there....

Brutal the level of ignorance in our media with the standings. I have seen it reported that Cavan are relegated and that Mayo are guaranteed a league final appearance with a win.
Neither statement is correct.

While it is unlikely, if Cavan win, Ros draw and Monaghan lose and if Monaghan's losing margin plus Cavan's winning margin is greater than 5 (or equal to 5 and Cavan score 6 points more than Monaghan) then Cavan would stay up.

If Mayo, Galway and Kerry all win (or if Kerry draw), Mayo will finish third.
If Mayo and Galway win and Kerry lose, it would depend on margins. Mayo currently +7, Galway +0 and Kerry +11. Most likely Mayo and Kerry in this scenario, but could technically be any 2 of the three.
If Mayo draw and Tyrone beat Galway, Mayo would finish second by virtue of H2H win over Tyrone.
If Mayo draw and Galway draw or win, Galway would finish second.
If Mayo lose they cannot finish in the top 2.

The only way Kerry do not qualify for the final is if Mayo and Galway both win well and Kerry lose heavily. Galway win plus Kerry loss would need to be 12 points

Neglected to add - Tyrone can qualify for the league final with a win over Galway if Mayo lose to Monaghan.

First English team to beat Bayern at home since Norwich in 1993?

from how many attempts?

United 3 times at least, Arsenal 2, Chelsea 1 or 2...

Actually, City beat them in 2013. Never mind.

and Arsenal in 2013? Bayern went through on away goals rule
