So after todays result 11 is the magic number of wins needed to guarantee the title. Hopefully that number will be down to 10 after tomorrow.

Might be off by a point to guarantee the title...

93 is the best either City of Leicester can manage. Liverpool are 33 (11 wins) away from 94!

Dublin will find it tough this year without Gavin. Especially in Leinster where 4 or 5 counties are waiting in the long grass to take advantage of Dublin not having him on the sideline anymore.  10 in a row won't be as easy as it looks!

I prefer to think of it as 10-3-4!  :)

Despite the procession of wins by Liverpool and City slipping up here and there, there is a very small part of me that still gets relief from Citys result today.

I suppose it makes the journey more enjoyable.  ;D

No sign of our former WUM these days. Even he has been been blown away from Klopp and Co.

I find it gas that Spillane who has been making a lot of money from the GAA for years now should begrudge inter-county Managers getting rewarded for their time.

It's like lets me sit up here in my Ivory tower getting well paid for writing a few columns and a bit of TV. Meanwhile you should get nothing for spending most of your year Managing a football team for nothing.

Just checked there, Mayo are 18/1 to win Sam.

Must be the highest odds since 2012?

Dublin are 8/11!

The dominance of the Dubs has led to the emergence of a glass ceiling

Normally that Mayo team would have won Sam. The Dubs would have faded and it would have been Mayo’s turn in 16 or 17. Tyrone would have kicked on as well.

But not with the Dubs way ahead. Not possible.
The sport is rigged.

You want to be careful what you say Seafoid. The romantics believe still (despite all the published facts and figures) that we are dealing with the same way of progressing/coaching/traning/selecting of a squad/team to push on for to try and win an All Ireland as one did 10 years ago.

Anyway, I look from a distance anymore. It'd disgust me to pay into an Inter-county match.

I'll be shouting for Dublin again this year!

I wonder if he is talking about McGeeney? The question is how would he know regardless of who he is talking about? I’m fairly sure I know the answer to that one

Probably Horan!

Very difficult to know with great certainty where mayo are at , how do you even define “finished “ in today’s inter county world . Let’s pretend Mayo get to the super 8 this summer,  for arguments sake if they progressed to a semi final say v Kerry , would you bet your house on a Kerry victory ? 

There is definitely some promise in a dozen players coming into the reckoning now and with Boyler (50mins r so)Higgins(same as boyler),Tom p (? Over getting back to the player he was obviously) Aido, lee, Cillian, paddy , Diarmuid  still very much top players it’s not beyond them to win games . So ,finished as all Ireland contenders, probably have been since after 17 (should of won Sam simple as ) but finished as a top 4 side , I wouldn’t be certain that’s for sure .

Being top 4 or top 6 means nothing, only more cost over the summer without reward. Donegal have been top 4 since 2012 - but you'd never see them having a chance of lifting Sam. Same for Tyrone they are in a constant top four.  Galway have hopped in and out the last couple of years. There are now a group of counties that seem will be top 6 forever. Galway, Mayo. Kerry, Donegal and Tyrone. With the exception of Kerry, all the previous named have flat-lined.

Mayo last year lost to Roscommon, (a well rested) Kerry and Dublin. They won a League title that Dublin we on holidays for. It's hard to believe that Mayo have not won a Connacht title since 2015.

Anyway, luckily for the GAA coffers (someone has to pay for Dublin's GDO's), there is always hope with the Mayo Fans.

I expect Dublin to continue their phenomenal home record in the Championship this summer.

Spillane does roughly the same levels of research for his articles, as a bull does into its mating partners.

He has been stealing a living for 25 years, and that his opinions are considered still relevant is a blemish on Irish society.

Spillane is like the Larry Gogan of GAA punditry. Larry played records, there was no real research or insight. He relied on sound bites. In Larry's case this was ok. He was a humble soul, knew the score and was professional at what he did. Spillane on the other hand has a high opinion of himself and sees himself as some sort deep thinker.
