WTF is everyone seeing in Ibe? I really don't get it.

Pace, power, bit of trickery, good oul shot on him, unknown quantity to others, good preseason behind him

Any chance you'd get Sean Quinn off?

In 13 final the Mayo support largely stayed silent waiting for the axe to fall.

The eeriest last 10 minutes of any match I've ever been at! We are still in the game chasing it. And the stands are dead! Hardly a sound. We get closer and closer on the scoreboard to the Dubs. But the cheers resemble consolation scores by team way behind. I have never ever seen a championship game involving Mayo where we were in it with minutes to go and the crowd did not get behind the team. That evening I realised it would take something special for Mayo to win an AI. We are frightened, more frightened of losing than of trying to win, trying to will our team over the line.

Can it be done in trainers in good weather? If not, how much would a pair of hiking/walking boots cost?

I have seen female members of the travelling community climbing in white, high heeled shoes!!

Don't confuse your stairs with Croagh Patrick.  :D

Here's my line up. Should be 4231 formation.

I think that's where COC comes in, he has by far the best vision and passing out of that Mayo team. I'd like to see himself and Aiden switching regularly between FF and CHF during the match

Seems to be a bit of angst among Mayo folk as to what the best set up will be on Sunday

Fact is none of us knows how the match ups will pan out & that is where the sidelines will earn their corn.

Big test for two inexperienced management teams & the game may well be won by on field leadership with one or two players stepping up to take the game by the scruff of the neck.

In Murph we trust....

Section of Mayo support showing a weak characteristic that has plagued Mayo football for decades.

Leave him on the square ye fools , Donegal what about them , we are Mayo .

So are you saying a section of Mayo support are responsible for some of the selections and tactics of the past?

Many's the Mayo support went to CP full of optimism/confidence and came home with its tail between it legs. 89, 96,97 and 2012 being good examples. Especially the first 3. By 2012 the fear had well and truly set in. In 13 final the Mayo support largely stayed silent waiting for the axe to fall. Yeah a lot of Mayo supporters wary about this. Mostly because this management have no pedigree of managing at this level. We ll know a lot more on Saturday night of course.

Myself I think the most likely outcomes is that we win with a bit to spare - say 5/6 points, or we lose a tighter game after chasing a good Donegal start.
Wouldn't worry about that bit ..... worry more about Donegal making sure that the ball doesn't get into the full forward area, but they can't do that for the whole game. If Mayo keep a well organised/disciplined 12 players behind the half way line (from the start) then they have a selection of 3 quality forwards to win the game

Sure they re the guys that decide our game plan. The players just won t go out and play 12 back by telepathy or something.
Look at the mess Kildare ended up in trying to play a defensive game - nobody knew what they were at.

based on who is fit.

and a huge amount of optimism.

and yes I know I have Balotelli in there, and I'd have Ings come in for him for the last 30 minutes and Lucas coming in for Firmino at the same time to protect the 3-0 lead.

Can I ask in Balo's time at Liverpool what you have ever seen in him and thought, 'Oh that was reasonably good'

I kind of like the fella but he has been truly awful, it's like playing with 10 men.
