Just when you thought the country had suffered enough.

Can’t happen surely - shoulder to shoulder no longer an option!

These pricks could still put a hard border up. I wouldn’t put it past them.

Of course they will. Once they have left they can do what they want with their borders.

They can, but they would have to repudiate the withdrawal agreement to do that.

And the consequences would be?
I would be surprised if some kind of hard border is not put in place.

Made me chuckle when Spillane was praising Kerry for 4 players tackling 1 man - wasn’t that Tyrone’s puke football!

Yeah. But of course it's different when Kerry do it. Yearrah. ye know yourself .

How many chances are some of these Mayo players going to get?  3 of those forwards that started and were substituted during the course of the game today have been given 3 or 4 games each to prove themselves over the course of this league.  Bar a 3 minute cameo by one of them at the end of the Donegal game, all 3 have been poor.  They aren't even close to the standard unfortunately.  Not sure what Horan is looking at, if he's looking at anything at all.  I fully expect him to play all 3 again in Galway and again all 3 will be substituted.
Well at least they got substituted, there's one lad never gets substituted and he's clearly not intercounty standard.

There's another that's going to be pushing him. Lasted more than an hour today. If Towey was in earlier we could have got a result. Diarmuid missed 2 frees he would likely have got.

For one of those three you mention, it was only his second start of the year. While he was poor today, he was decent the last day and had a very good season last year.

Another one of them played a lot of today in the full forward line...way out of position. I wouldn't be writing him off just yet.

if you are talking about who I thinking you are talking about; imagine if he had gone toe to toe with Gavin White today :o Maybe it was a mercy to him to be put inside. The reality is a 10 has to be able to go with a McCaffrey or a White.

Should Horan have made a couple of changes earlier in the game larryin? The subs all seemed to have made an impact when they came on.

He can't keep picking some of those lads that started. Can he?
I think he is caught between the devil and the deep blue sea here. On the one hand, he had a lot of what would be first choice players who are out through injury or at least not match fit. If he starts panicking and throwing some of them on he is risking further injuries to his better players and enforced absences during the championships coming up soon. It's Hobson's choice I'm afraid.
On the other hand, some of the newer players are showing potential and sooner or later, he will have to let a raft of the old guard go. Unless he bloods replacements in, he will be in even more trouble than he is right now.
I thought a few likely lads showed up last year and this year to date has been even more promising. We have always had problems getting youngsters to mature enough to play at championship level but the last few years, and this one especially, there has been quite a few.
Ossian Mullin looks the real deal already and Tommy Conroy, Towey, O'Donoughe and a few others are developing nicely. Throw in Matty Ruane and probably Fionn McDonagh from last year and things are looking good for the future.
Maybe not too good at present but dammit!, Tiocfaidh ar lá arís very soon. ;D

The names you mention as positive I will give you yeah. In fact I think I mentioned them in an earlier post and would raise you Swanee O Hora as well. They are fairly obvious as well. On the other hand there are lads wheeled out every week that are as obviously not at it at all. These are JH's projects so if he is caught between devil and deep blue sea ....... If you look back at recent panels, there were young lads that were indulged for years that never were good enough.

Jaysis after that analysis by Spillane and Whelan you'd never think it was a one point game.

They're right though.

Of course they will. Once they have left they can do what they want with their borders.

Second half was far better but Kerry weren't as pushed either . Aos is just the most incredible individual that has ever played for Mayo , he was immense in second half. 

Transition is hard to stomach for us ejits who react with impulse and impatience  . Relegation is a disaster imo cause it will mean we are playing weaker opposition during transition for at least a year when you want these lads playing the top flight in year two of the rebuild. It is what it is though , nowt can be done now .

Yeah. we're as good as gone.

Had to laugh at O'Se and O'Rourke second guessing what was going on in the shemozzle yet speculating that Dublin love beating Tyrone so there must be dirt between them. Also some ridiculous statement was made about the Dublin players being trapped against a fence lol.

The Hampsey black was for an incident leading up to the tunnel punch-up not caught on camera. He was strolling about the tunnel entrance nonchalantly 'accidentaly' body checking Dublin players running in. The linesman brought this to the ref's attention straight away as the more malicious fighting was going on down the tunnel.

So Hampsey started it?!

Ref missed a blatant hook on Mcmenamin
Should have been a penalty
Get Canning never even mentioned it.🙄

Actually he or Kevin McStay did mention it, and wondered if the referee was going back in to discuss it with the umpire (he wasn't). In the event they didn't linger on the point as the TV didn't show a clear replay of the incident.

McStay did. Said he thought McMen. was hooked. Canning hasn't a clue. Mailing it in for 30yrs. now.

Div two will be different for sure . Absolute disaster though imo

We're not gone yet. Let's see how we get on over the course of the next three games. It is looking pretty bleak in our quest to finish 6th unfortunately.

FWIW: Mayo will look to bounce back from last weekend's defeat when they host Kerry in tomorrow's rescheduled game in Intersport Elverys MacHale Park at 1pm. The team is as follows:

1. David Clarke - Ballina Stephenites
2. Padraig O'Hora - Ballina Stephenites
3. Oisin Mullin - Kilmaine
4. Lee Keegan - Westport
5. Michael Plunkett - Ballintubber
6. Eoin O'Donoghue - Belmullet
7. Patrick Durcan - Castlebar Mitchels
8. Aidan O'Shea - Breaffy (C)
9. Stephen Coen - Hollymount/Carramore
10. Jordan Flynn - Crossmolina Deel Rovers
11. Ryan O'Donoghue - Belmullet
12. Diarmuid O'Connor - Ballintubber
13. Kevin McLoughlin - Knockmore
14. Darren Coen - Hollymount/Carramore
15. James Durcan - Castlebar

We're not gone yet but we will be soon if that's the best we can field for must win games.

You only have to be best any given year so yeah it could be that Galway are coming good at the right time. The Mayo team is gone and I think Dublin have levelled off and may even be in decline. I think we will have new champions this year. Most likely it will be Kerry but Galway could well be in the right place at the right time again.

These boys banging on about “The ref should know Murphy wouldn’t want to get involved in that so common sense should prevail.”

The ref can only act on what has been seen by him or reported by his officials, not on a scenario he makes up in his own head. I can’t understand how they can suggest that.

Murphy could have gone earlier with a straight red.
The second yellow was a joke though. It's become a no brainer now to just get in a tussle with a player that's already yellowed and even though he does not react in a violent way he will get sent off.
In a one point game getting Murphy off the field was .......
Good shout that Murphy on the field could have got a valuable point from the game.
