The difference in our composure on the ball between the two halves was hard to understand, we forced too many shots. I think losing Compton was massive in that it forced Enda into a more typical midfield role and destabilised a midfield that was dominating Galway. I hope he’s fit for the next game.

Galway just about deserved it based on how wasteful we were in the second half. But as I suspected there was never much between these two sides, the same as it has generally been for many years now. Walsh probably had his best performance in a senior jersey today.

We have to dust ourselves down and come again - we gave Galway their fill despite our mistakes so if we have the right mindset this won’t be the final word in our season. No matter who we get in Round 4 we should be winning it if we clean up our errors today and keep the same level of defensive discipline. Getting to the Super 8s opens up the season again and brings with it a lot of experience that will serve this team well in the years ahead.

Diarmuid Murtagh did not deserve to be on the losing side today. Pure class.

Up de Ros.

between the rain and the delicate young primroses getting trampled, it could be a subdued atmosphere in the Hyde.
Hopefully the seniors don't wilt as easily.

Did you drink whatever floor cleaner Seafoid is on or something? I know it’s a Sunday but it’s a bit early..

Is Johnny Maugham encumbered with a tool of a father ????
What an idiotic comment to make.Would expect a bit more on this forum than that.
Indeed. Delighted Mayo hammered them when such asshole like comments such as this one was made.

If only he didn’t insult The Tanned Son, we’d have won that one.

Galway to win 5-6 points playing in first gear. Still been a great season for the rossies winning the FBD Cup and division 2 league title.

Try harder Larrin :-*

Can’t understand the narrative that Iceland deserved a point. They just packed the defence and hacked it out all second half. At least Argentina tried to play the right way, passed it around and created what few chances there were.

Can't understand the idea that they didn't deserve the point.  They executed their game plan almost perfectly and denied Argentina the space to cause much damage.  An exceptionally well organized defense, and decent enough on the break.  Well worth their point, and I hope not to have to watch them again.

They gave away two clear penalties, one called and one ignored. Hard to say they deserved the result in that context.

I hope Iceland get smashed in their remaining two games.

They've had their 15 minutes, it's now time for them to fook off and take their hoofball with them.

Norway were great craic when they were beating England back in 1993 but they soon became an absolute blight on international football.

Iceland are no different in that regard.

It’s more than a bit rich for an Irishman to be complaining about this stuff.

How about ye take yer shite to another thread and leave this one for the football.
One of the best things about the World Cup is supporting one team over the other in every fixture due to your perception of each country’s historical deeds & alignments.

This is a very wee six mindset to have.
Gives me an interest. Otherwise, a team from far away are playing a team from far away. This match is being played far away.

I like watching good football. Apart from England losing I have no skin in the game.

One of the centres for group matches is Volgograd.  It was known in Ww2 as Stalingrad, where the Nazis ran into a wall.

The Soviets won the war but the cost was unbearable.

"She also very quickly explained that the fault lay not with one man but with the experiences of Soviet generations, now reworked for new wars. When she listed the fake descriptions of events in Ukraine in the Russian media, she spoke of Russian society as a “collective Putin.” As she put it, “Putin placed his bet on the basest instincts and won. Even if he disappeared tomorrow, we would remain as we are.”

Did you know Russia used to be a communist country, Sea?

Croatia are playing Nigeria in Kaliningrad. Until 1945 it was a German city, in Prussia, called Königsberg. Nobody talks about Prussia any more.

I’m sure you can find some way to blame capitalism for it all if you try hard enough.

If the  the mods would ban our prize eejit for a few weeks we can have sensible adult discussion.

Don’t put yourself down like that.

If Roscommon defend anything like the league final , Galway are capable of scoring 12 goals .

The only time Mayo sees silverware these days is at the dinner table.
