As long as they avoid each other in R3 - Tyrone, Kildare, Monaghan and Mayowestros should make Round 4.
If they do i would expect 3 of that 4 to win their R4 ties.

Chances of Pogba leaving?

Surely they will be able to get the deal done to get lakaku out the door, when Inter are reportedly showing strong interest.
If he goes I would be hoping for a replacement, Rashford wouldnt fill me full of confidence that he is going to go on this season and bag 25 goals.

Looks 50/50 on Pogba.

 Lukaku scored 15 goals in 45 appearances this season I'd like to see what Greenwood would score if he was given a similar amount of games next season.

Wishful thinking on your part - he's a likeable fella, but he hasn't shown to be a top level manager. His attention to S&C in particular is way off what's needed.
And picking forwards in defence and thinking attack was the best form of defence was a major flaw in his management.

2018 final was level on 65 mins. In fact Roscommon led for most of that game

there's been a lot of lazy analysis of games recently

It was level after 69 minutes i believe.  When i said Roscommon turned last years final on it head i was talking about the full time scoreline.  Last year Galway 16 points to Roscommon's 12 the very opposite of what happened yesterday. For another bit of not so lazy analysis. Roscommon led at half time looked in control but only scored twice in the 2nd half in the final last year again the same happened for Galway yesterday.

Must be up there with one of Roscommon's finest ever Connacht title wins having beaten both Galway and Mayo two established and top 5 teams in their own back yards.

Nobody should be surprised by this Roscommon success at senior level though,  2007-2016 Roscommon reached 9 Connacht under 21 finals winning 4 (should have been 6 wins as the 2013,2016 titles was left behind them) and these Roscommon lads have beaten the current Mayo and Galway county players numerous times at minor and under 21 between 2006-16 so was only natural that Roscommon would eventually beat both to win a senior Connacht title. Next step should be keeping a good manager in Anthony Cunningham on as long as possible. 

Some moaning mary's might not agree but i thought the field celebrations was great and produced fabulous scenes and pictures from it. Whatever about Leinster,Munster the Connacht provincial championship is alive and well. Well done to Roscommon turned last year defeat in Hyde park (12 scores to 16) totally on its head. 

Galways winning run v Mayo at all grades continues. Full time Mayo 0-9 Galway 1-7

Galway 1-3 Mayo 0-2. Half time in the Connacht junior final.

Philly McGuinness U20 FINAL Full time Sligo: 1-10(13) Tyrone: 1-23(26)

confirmed by indo. Ruane broke his collar bone in training

So unlucky at a time that Ruane was in fine form. Will S O'Shea take his spot or Diarmuid O'Connor move back into midfield as he did v Kildare last year?

The Ďmagicí of the round robin!

For the Rossies, this is the equivalent of an actual semi-final
WIN - into the final
LOSE - out
DRAW - re play Sligo in the semi final

Whereas for Sligo, itís borderline meaningless
WIN - into semi
LOSE - into semi
DRAW - into semi
Just different opposition for each scenario!

Sligo losing will give them home advantage for the semi final while a draw or win and they will be away to Roscommon or Mayo. Food for thought there.


How does home and away work for semi final and final? If it goes by the league, we get Mayo and Roscommon away or Galway at home? I think it should be based on last knock out match.

Semi final June 26th Wednesday
Final July 5th

Goes by the league.

That's correct. Don't forget about a draw between Sligo,Roscommon which would mean the same teams play again in the semi final and Galway into the final.

Minor half times

Leitrim 1-4 Sligo 1-11
Mayo 0-4 Galway 0-4

Tomorow a important night in the minor/U17 championship

Sligo should move onto 4 points with a win against Leitrim who were well beaten in their games so far.

A key fixture between Mayo and Galway in McHale Park.
