Red Card looked the correct decision. Digne had three goes at doing the Southampton player. Would not be down-heartened if i was a Everton supporter. Good start is always hard to maintain. This season will have a lot of mad twists and turns before it ends.

This season is all about getting over the line in the League. It's a once in a lifetime opportunity.

It's not about building a team.

It's not about playing nice football.

It's not about bringing in a rookie Manager.

Big Sam, Mark Hughes?

The biggest problem is bringing in a decent Manager with premier League experience is that they don't understand the Scottish game.

Most of the candidates are used to an expectation of mid-table, not being relegated.

The expectation at Celtic in the Domestic League is to win every game.

Conroy looks a great player for Mayo. For his goal he took 8 steps... Twice. I suppose it's an overlooked rule but really hard to defend against with such a quick player. Should the official rules be changed to reflect what referees are actually enforcing?

When is the last time a goal was disallowed for steps? I can't remember. Referees seem to get caught up in the moment. If a player hesitates, he will be spotted.

Well done to Tyrone! Held on in there a scraped home.

Always hard to finally lose our Division One status after such a long stint. We got away with a few close shaves in the recent past, but not this year.

Mayo can use Division 2 to re-build and blood players. It won't be easy come back up. And most in that Division will see us as a prize worth trying to beat!

Job done!

Always hard to come back to the domestic league and get a result a couple of days after an away European tie. 

Klopp is picking teams based on fitness rather than form or team balance.

Not getting the rub of the green with VAR, but these things even themselves out over a season.

Yes! If you have the chance of finishing off a competition - get it done. This only leaves both groups having to get together again and again which only adds to more logistic headaches.

Don't know where to start with that match earlier, you'd only be thankful that Galway don't need to get a result next week against Dublin to stay in Division One.
While there always seems to be a blow up collapse game in Galway that can happen at any time, Galway looked worse today than at any point under KW, let that sink in. That was worse than the Tipp semi final or the 2017 Connacht final, that was Mayo 2013 levels of bad today. I don't care about the players missing, you shouldn't get that much of a hiding even if you had to play your U20's.
Galway can't be without him but Comer cannot stay fit, if there was any doubt about his hamstring and he started then it would be criminal from the sideline, you would have to assume that it's a fresh injury issue that likely means he's done for the year if it's as severe as it seems to have been.

No point picking out individual players for criticism as it was a complete failure throughout the pitch, some positions were absolute disaster zones though and anyone with eyes watching it will know who those players were.
Conroy and O'Donnell showed fight but it's piss poor when it's the vets that are the only ones bringing it in a game with the big rivals.

Fair play to Mayo though, played some super football, their new players looked to the manner born and they destroyed the poor level of opposition that was in front of them, they'll more than fancy their chances of staying up next week with another win.

A tough day in the office for Galway. Mayo looked more focused today. The reality is Galway are not that bad and Mayo are not that great. Results like this will mean little if Galway have a good championship. Tough game v Dublin to follow, at least it is at home. A decent performance and all will be (nearly) forgotten about this next week.

Doing what P Joyce does is positive and great. But every now and then you need K Walsh moments. When there are leaks everywhere.

It's a shame Mayo don't play like this in AI finals.

It's a shame the GAA gave ye loads of money and make the AI Championship a farce. But hey these things happen. I'll be cheering for ye to win the 6! How are the Dublin GDO's getting paid this year?  ;D

Well the dubs are doing their bit for the Mayo economy anyway. People buying their new jersies online from Elverys are getting them shipped from their Castlebar warehouse.

Good to see Mayo are getting something from the dubs off the pitch considering they can't get anything out of them on the pitch

Ah, we've been sponsoring your underage development for a while now from game receipts. We also been supporting your pubs and hotels. And keeping the vendors happy in Croke Park.

If you think 15 people on minimum wage packing a few Dublin Jerseys in Mayo makes up for that, well good luck to you.

Dubs played down in Castlebar pre Covid. Hotels and local hostelries did alright that weekend. They were alot friendlier to the dubs as well.

Coming to Castlebar with a Hardcore League crowd of a couple of Hundred is welcome every second year. But nothing in comparison to what we bring to Dublin.

Look give us some of GDO money that ye have a monopoly over and all will be well!

You have to say Padraic Joyce has to stuck to his promise of open football and not a sign of 15 men behind the ball.

The 10 in a row is a once in a lifetime. There will more than likely never be an opportunity of doing this again. On the all time Roll of honour Rangers are on 54*, Celtic 51. Rangers win they go to 55*, 4 ahead. Celtic win it there will only be 2 between them. This is the closest Celtic has been to Rangers since 1988. In 2000 we were 13 titles behind.


* 1 shared title.
