Whatever about starting Connolly, it's bizarre how Shane Long isn't in the squad. He would have caused way more problems with his pace than Collins.

Connacht and Munster 2020 draws this morning

Connacht Draw almost the same as this summer. New Galway manager whoever he may be will be most pleased

Quarter finals

New York v Galway
London v Roscommon
Leitrim v Mayo


Semi finals

Roscommon/London v Mayo/Leitrim
Galway/New York v Sligo

Munster  (if the 2nd tier comp is brought in and Cork and Tipp don't reach the Munster final they go into that?)

Quarter finals

Waterford v Limerick
Clare v Tipperary

Semi finals

Kerry v Cork
Waterford/Limerick v Clare/Tipperary

We're seriously unlucky with the Connacht draw recently. 2012 since we were on the opposite side to Galway and Roscommon.

I thought the Munster finalists were seeded on the opposite side of the draw?

Dublin posters seem obsessed with this topic for some reason. Almost like they're trying to deflect attention from something else...

Fair play to Galway and the FAI taking the heat off our administration problems.

A bit of a Roman Abramovich scenario going on here, lots of double standard posters.

Its not pleasant having your laundry aired in public is it... especially for everyones favourite county, the arent we great brigade.

You see it across the country where individuals put money into their county. Declan Kelly Tipperary, JP McManus Limerick, Bertie Ahern and the 5m to Dublin.

As i said Double standards, At least other counties can put it to use, not a hope in Mayo. Dont even have the competence to accept free financial gifts.

I suppose it's difficult when you have actual volunteers trying to run the county board. There are several full time administrators in your own county for example.

We only know one side of the story at the minute but from Tim O'Leary's POV, he wants assurances that the remainder of the money will be invested in the academy squads or the Lough Lannagh training facility. He doesn't want it spent on some day to day costs, i.e. senior team expenses or the MacHale Park loan.

Why can't these assurances be provided? It would be interesting to hear what issues the county board has?
this reminds me a bit of the Cat scan and dialysis machines   charities buy  for hospitals and then there is not the Staff to run them and they are left idle for years .
like it or not the County board are in charge of the GAA in Mayo and have to take an overall view of finances and not just vanity   Projects instigated by people who seem willing clear off at he first opportunity when they Don't get their own way.

Well that "vanity project" is going ahead anyway in partnership with Mayo county council so I don't see what the problem is. Tim O'Leary obviously wants something to show for his money. He's delivering 750 ONeills footballs to the clubs in Mayo this week so there is no sign that he's clearing off.

Chris Barrett should get a nomination too. Darren Coen had a good year but being left out of the game vs Dublin may count against him.

Its ironic that Mayo/Galway fans bitch about Dublin making it impossible to win. London, Sligo and Leitrim in Connacht alone are severely disadvantaged compared to them, but as both as bith counties van beat them they don't care what happens.

What disadvantages do they have apart from population? Sligo and Roscommon received more development funding than Mayo over the last 11 years. Leitrim aren't very far behind either despite being a much smaller county. There's generally a home/away arrangement for games in Connacht. The exception being London who start off with a home game every year.

Are you factoring in the GAA talking over the 5 million debt of McHale stadium?

You mean the loan that is now being repaid in full with interest? 30,000 per month repayments, the majority of which is funded by the clubs.

Facts are irrelevant to most on here. If everthing came down to population and money China would be world no 1 in all sports.

It seems being better is now a crime,sin, unfair advantage to everyone else.

Its ironic that Mayo/Galway fans bitch about Dublin making it impossible to win. London, Sligo and Leitrim in Connacht alone are severely disadvantaged compared to them, but as both as bith counties van beat them they don't care what happens.

Imagine if all supporters in all sports were like muppets here who decided not to go to games because they think their team won't win. Competitive sport would be finished overnight

You start a thread clearly to stir up the likes of Galway and Mayo fans and then you whinge about them bitching? Heres the thing - don't start sad threads like this if you don't want them bitching.

I followed my county for years and years not thinking they would win. I was more hoping they would win. We don't even have that hope now. I don't even go anymore and that's from someone who travelled to the majority of games. I refuse pay for what is going on .

And it's not Dublin GAA I'm pissed with. I'm pissed with the organisation for losing that hope we had every year. I'm pissed off with the organisation for destroying the sport (especially in Leinster). Maybe if you stood back for  minute and imagine if the shoe was on the other foot and see how you would feel then. But I'm sure you don't give a fiddlers about any other county. Once you get your millions and keep winning then all is well.

My point is teams like Sligo, London, Leitrim, Limerick enter the provincal championships every year with no chance of winning it but no seems to have any issues with that. It's all about how dublin have made it so difficult to win an All Ireland!!! Interesting that the only county you don't hear moaning is Kerry.

People constantly crying over Mayo not winning an all Ireland, but at least they have multiple titles Connaght titles/medals to their name. Great players like John Galvin, Matty Forde, Declan Browne don't even have a provincal medal. I'd much rather see structures changed so weaker counties have something tangiable to aim for come the summer and not have their season end at the end of June when it's the best time of year for football.

If you think taking money off Dublin and just throwing money at the weaker counties will work you should go work for the HSE. They are perfect example of how just throwing money at a problem doesn't work.

There are hardly any Kerry posters on this board. Have a look on HoganStand if you want to see them talk about it. As I pointed out in my previous post, those counties don't have any disadvantage in the Connacht/Munster championship bar population.

So investing in Dublin is fine but putting more coaches in the likes of Dundalk, Drogheda, Bray, Sligo and other soccer towns is money down the drain?

If county boards have plans/structures in place for what they would do with capital grants then no problem, but how many county boards would you trust to spend the money wisely?

So what you also saying is that if you're a small county it's tough luck. You have no chance of winning even a provincal title, but that's just life, deal with it. Dublin are better than all the contenders for the All Ireland at the moment but that is somehow a disgrace and GAA shouldit seems be ashamed for allowing this to happen

It's not a capital grant. Just move some of the full time coaches to areas of the country in need and try to increase the standards there. There is no money changing hands with county boards.

If players in smaller counties want a 2nd tier championship I've no problem with that but it's up to those players to ask.

The Mayo SFC looks a lot more open this year. Mitchels have gone back on a few years ago. Ballintubber look pretty strong but there's an opportunity for Ballina or Ballaghaderreen to claim the title. The semi-final draw is...
Ballintubber v Ballina
Castlebar v Ballaghaderreen

Louisburgh would be my favourites for intermediate so long as they can get over The Neale in the semi-final. Ballyhaunis v Burrishoole is the other semi.

Kilmaine vs Castlebar B in the junior final so kilmaine will be in the Connacht Championship.

We have also seen the death of the blanket defence (unless your from Tyrone)



You can't be saying that with a straight face. Dublin and Kerry when not in possession will regularly funnel every man behind the ball, Kerry especially. Mayo Galway Fermanagh all particularly bad for it. Tyrone's version of the blanket isn't that different but they regularly rack up high scores. However they have other attributes that make them all but unwatchable. It will change in time with a change in regime.

This is the usual nonsense spouted about Dublin being a defensive team. Kerry and Dublin at times drop men behind the ball, but it's not their basic plan A,B & C like it is for Tyrone.

You give Tyrone an awful hard time but in the semi-final this year Kerry only played 5 forwards. Paul Murphy was a full time sweeper. Meanwhile Tyrone were constantly kicking the ball into their full forward line.

Against Dublin, Kerry only played 4 forwards as Killian Spillane was dropped. What makes Tyrone so defensive?
