GAA Discussion / Re: Ros away to Dublin 20th July 2019

Dubs unchanged for tonight .

Strange not to see Connolly on the bench, seemed like the perfect opportunity for him to get some game time

Not that strange, all Gavin said was that Connolly returned to training. All named subs have been training for months and would be ahead of Connolly in the pecking order.  If next weeks game is a dead rubber then all subs today will be starters and Connolly will likely get some game time in that match.

Oliver any info on how our delegates voted on the Donegal motion at Congress?

I honestly dont know for sure but at the time i heard we were "advised" vote against it.
Enough said.
I do believe Horan helped us get the CF in the Hyde last year and no doubt we'll want a biteen of a grant for the works on the Hyde.
We'll hardly swing €30m like Frank Murphy  ::)

Are you mixing up John Horan in a  figure head role with  Páraic Duffy who was GAA chief this time last year?

One of the stand outs for me on the list. What would he have scored if he ever got the chance to play 50 games?

348 points leaving him in second place and above the Gooch

He was only 24 when his career was unfortunately cut short and many forwards improve their scoring by mid 20s.

Cork are just too physical and athletic for these Kerry lads many of which still look like U17s.

Cork off to flyer 0-7 to 0-1 ahead. Jack O'Connor looking a little anxious on the sideline.

Some impressive stats there on Brian Hurley. Good to see him back to impressive form again. For a while there it seemed like his county career would be cut short due to injury.

id be surprised if sunday's double header doesn't at least come very close to 40K if not be it
Don't think you'd get many meath people down to Limerick but aa crowd ay go to see them in Croke park.

mind you if the double header was in limerick I would not object . id reckon that would be full to the rafters
I highly doubt Meath and Mayo would have brought 50k down to Limerick.

24
I'd predict Tyrone by 4 again but Cork can certainly get a shock here if we're not on it.
Tyrone normally win by far greater margin than 4 points when the opposition they face are poor defensively and i can't see Tyrone giving the Cork forwards the time and room to play as Dublin did last Saturday or Kerry did in the Munster final.

GAA Discussion / Re: Galway V Mayo R4 Qualifier
« on: July 15, 2019, 02:53:46 PM »
Hard to be optimistic at the minute for 2020 if it stays as is.
We are now also well into our longest All Ireland football final appearance drought since we first made it to one in 1919.
I wouldn't be too worried about losing all Irelands as a measure of quality
It never did Mayo any use

I'm not so sure about that, need to be getting there or thereabouts in my opinion regardless of the result, no one 21 or under in the county has any recollection of Galway in an All Ireland football final and the resultant hype and interest levels in the county that it brings with it. Mayo don't have a top tier hurling team to compete with for hearts and minds either.
On that bigger level, some of the stand out players for the minor hurlers yesterday were from Moycullen, Mountbellew and Ballygar, now while a good portion of hurling people in the county will be delighted with that spread out from the traditional heartlands, it's a development that should fill anyone from the football ends of the county with some trepidation for the future. This follows on from the ten dual minor players last year having to pick which code to play, with 9 opting for the small ball. Both sides made their respective finals and the footballers were the ones that lost.

Was last year not a case of getting there or thereabouts? reached the NFL final and All Ireland semi final if Dublin wasn't the opponents in both games Galway might have won both who knows?

Now this year was a big fall back on where Galway was in 2018 especially in the championship. Similar to Mayo's exit in last summer and the Mayo county board decided to remove Rochford from his position a debate ongoing if it was the right one.

Meath are decent value at 9/4 considering the results at the weekend

If the game was played some where other the odds would be decent but outside of Dublin does any team have a better record in the championship in Croke Park than Mayo do the last 5 or 6 years?

GAA Discussion / Re: Kerry v Mayo - Super 8s Round 1
« on: July 14, 2019, 11:51:54 PM »
As abject and toothless a performance as I've seen from a Mayo team in a long time. Some of them didn't even look remotely interested in being there and beaten to every ball from the first minute. Kerry looked hungrier and more up for it from the word go. I guess this is what happens when injuries and games on top of games add up. Kerry had a couple of weeks to prepare for this game while Mayo have been bouncing from game to game, week in and week out while juggling injuries. It caught up with them. Kerry were fresh and prepared while Mayo looked out on their feet. The scheduling for these games is an absolute mess. It shouldn't be that one team is able to bounce into this phase of the competition after a couple of weeks' break while another is doing multiple games on the trot just to get to the next phase where they will have to continue playing week in week out in the Super 8s. Every team should be given some breathing space to prepare for this stage of the competition.

That said, Mayo were miserable to watch. Leggy, disinterested, kickouts an absolute shit show from the word go, defenders seriously lacking pace, forwards receiving the worst ball imaginable. When you make Shane Enright look like a quality defender, you know something is seriously amiss with your team.

It's a serious uphill battle for Mayo now. I'm not even sure they'll beat Meath, I don't even know if they'll win a single game in this Super 8s. I'm also not sure Kerry will do them a favour next week either and beat Donegal.

Would be less of a mess if Mayo did as they were expected to do this summer (win Connacht)  At least Mayo can be thankfully they are still in the battle as the last time they reached they last 8 there was no group stage just straight knock out football.

Most impressive display of any side to date in this years championship in that first half by Kerry. Defensively they have been excellent, Moran has dominated the skies and their forwards have been excellent although O’Donoghue has been below par. Men against boys and Mayos kick passing has been dreadful whilst they have very little energy from that middle 8 today.

Overall a disappointing game for the neutral in the sense that it is so one sided and was over after 25 minutes.

Would agree with most of that and its true for a game that had so much hype its disappointing that its so one sided so far.

Game set match.
Half time in the first game but I think that’s full time on Mayo’s season.

Far from over yet for Mayo. Meath in Croke park and Donegal in MacHale Park and Mayo will likely be favourites for both games.

McBrearty with a fine finish on that goal. Meath from just 1 point down to now 5 ahead in a flash. All scores from play so far.

« on: July 14, 2019, 02:26:31 PM »
Rossfan red card my hole,Tyrone won game in second gear for most of the game.
Yup. Tyrone were never in trouble at any point yesterday.
Reality check

The game was very much in the melting pot 1st half and Roscommon could or should have led at the break, the fact they didn't came back to haunt and goals that was vital in the wins v Galway,Mayo didn't come v Tyrone.

I don't think losing to last years AI finalists by 4 points can be considered a reality check. Last years trimming v Tyrone in Croke Park certainly was and was one of the main reasons why Kevin McStay and his management stepped down.
No it wasn’t Rossies still waste too much possession
Scoring average is still not good enough to trouble top teams
Missed chances still don’t count in any sport

No what wasn't, that Roscommon could have led at half time?

Possession stakes especially 1st half was good from Roscommon. Tyrone had more of vice grip on possession 2nd half. Scoring average is rarely high against well organized defences as Tyrone's defence is, for example Mayo's last championship game v Tyrone was won with scoring just 0-13.

Main reason why Roscommon couldn't be competitive v the top teams was because they were ropey in defence.  The missed chances yesterday they didn't miss v Galway and Mayo was my point and those misses proved costly in the end.
