I don't think I'd regard 1-10 to 0-11 victory as a hammering v Kerry and the games crucial score (the goal) came in the 67th minute. With Mayo's record down in Kerry in recent years that result wasn't that much of a shock and with no Dublin in the final the opportunity was there for Mayo to finally grab a national title.

Mayo under Horan are fairly predictable in his own words consistently competitive, a hard working physically strong and well conditioned outfit whereby one of the main strengths of any Horan team is a good defence and I'll be surprised if Mayo conceded more that 12 to 15 points on Saturday night

For Roscommon to stand a chance in this game they will have to try and copy what Galway have done the last 3 years v Mayo, e.g well organised and make themselves difficult to score against. Plenty are saying Roscommon are improved defensively this year but I'm not too sure about, showed signs in January and February alright however since then its back to conceding big scores again v Cavan,Dublin,Kerry,Galway and all the recent challenge games.

Very easy win for Cavan. That was probably the worst display from Monaghan since 10 years, they played as if there was a total absence of coached preparation. Cavan had they played with more confidence in the 2nd half would have won by a country mile.

Thought your recents defeats to Div 3 opposition was far worse TBH
There's a difference between a defeat and the performance.
The defeat to Down in 2017 was similar to this one, however the tables were turned easy enough later on at Croke Park in the 4th round of the qualifiers.
Losing to the Larries on tour? one might think that no self respecting team could show their face after losing at home to that shower, but that game happened right after 2 hard games against Donegal.
It's no shock or surprise to lose to a team like Cavan on their home ground, it's just from a Monaghan perspective the performance and tactics were very poor, well below standard.

Fermangh last year? even before the late goal i thought Monaghan's performance was well off their standard.

Steve Clarke just announced as new Scotland manager so that's a free run for Jose or Rafa!   ;D

Or Moysey  ;D ;D
The money continuing to pile in on Moyes heading to Celtic, has been cut from 5/1 into 10/11.

Fair play to him. A lot of what he highlights also applies beyond hurling and football.
Better than what was in our programme yesterday, a pair of articles related to tiering the championships, Croke Park now it has settled itself on pursuing the tiered system in football appear to be using its match programmes to push that agenda as well.

It a big country wide road show done by HQ to get this football tiered system in place as soon as possible. The same thing was done to scrap the U21 championship and it was replaced by a poorer competition where the public have less interest in.

I’m expecting a Mayo win but then I would, wouldn’t I?
However, I’ve a touch of Larryitis as I wouldn’t put down €9,000 to win €2,000 on this particular outcome.
Roscommon are a limited side but Mayo are an unpredictable one so you take your pick here.
Mayo finished the league on a high note but thy started the same competition on a pretty low one.
I think the Rossies are an improving side; their key players are still relatively young but there is talent there, waiting to develop. (I’m no expert on my neighbours’ affairs but that’s what Liam McHale once told me and he should know better than I do.)
When I say this side is limited,I wouldn’t dream of insulting them bustards, I never do, but I’m talking about maturity here, not talent.
Mayo have both in abundance but are about as predictable as a baby’s bum so the outcome isn’t a forgone conclusion.

Mayo started the league with 3 wins in a row for the first time in years which included a win over Roscommon and a nine point margin v Tyrone in Omagh.  Who in your view (or told by McHale) are theses key players for Roscommon?

Westmeath chairman Billy Foley got his view across on the match day programme on Saturday. Food for thought there.

Jesus lads, yes exciting but brutal to watch.  I could have cried when i seen there was going to be extra time.  Just wanted put out of my misery.  Can't just say it is only these 2 teams tho either, Gaelic football overall is getting worse

Very negative view. Just watched the full game and found it enjoyable.

Sligo clearly came with plan and a big focus to not ship another 20+ beating v Galway but 21 goals conceded this year alone still shows where their problems remain.

Wasn't FOC first choice before injury? 2011 and 2013 U21 All Ireland winner and use to playing alone side Flynn is a decent player to bring in. Danny Cummins good form from NFL seems to have left him with no score v London,Sligo.

One of the best captains,defenders and leaders the Premier league has seen. He probably still have another few seasons in him for City or be he couldn't play a full season anymore. No room for sentiment at that club and likes of De ligt,Koulibaly could be signed now.

Well done Cavan. Are Monaghan the new Mayo? As in gone past it?

Monaghan have their level which is they can beat any of the main chasing bunch (Tyrone, Donegal, Mayo, Galway, Kerry) on any given day. They can also lose to the likes of Fermanagh or Cavan. Yesterdays result changes very little as to where Monaghan are.

As for Mayo, we are not as strong as we were circa 2013-2017.

Yes Monaghan lack consistency, it seems they struggle when favourites and excel as the underdog. As for Mayo Horan and number of the experience players such as Barrett,Moran have said this is the strongest Mayo team/panel yet and they backed up those words so far by winning a first national title for 18 years but i suppose they will be fully judged as to where they are this summer.

Dammit this game needed an early Watford goal.

Missed sitter. They may only get another chance like that

Ederson to be fair read the situation well and is one of the best keepers to save with his feet. Why wasn't the Watford penalty appeal even looked at by VAR?

It was, they said on commentary

Ok fair enough, i muted the commentary as soon as i heard Robbie Savage.

Why not turn it to BBC1?
Switched over for the second half. Some impact De Bruyne made in that 2nd half, they will only be better next season if they can keep him fit.
