Is Johnny Maugham encumbered with a tool of a father ????
What an idiotic comment to make.Would expect a bit more on this forum than that.
Indeed. Delighted Mayo hammered them when such asshole like comments such as this one was made.

If only he didn’t insult The Tanned Son, we’d have won that one.

between the rain and the delicate young primroses getting trampled, it could be a subdued atmosphere in the Hyde.
Hopefully the seniors don't wilt as easily.

Did you drink whatever floor cleaner Seafoid is on or something? I know it’s a Sunday but it’s a bit early..

Poor young lad.

I'm hopeful for this Ross team, no superstars but savage work ethic and able to deal with sticky situations in bith games to date

That’s a bit uncalled for, John Maughan is a gentleman

Looks like his son and comrades gave you ur answer today
3-16 to 1-6 final score

I'm showing him as much respect as he showed us at the time of his departure from we supplementing his incomes...

But well done to a good Mayo team today with an excellentl half back line

Are there QFs in the U20s? Or straight to SF? Who do we play next?

Straight to the semis. We play either Derry or Armagh in 4 weeks time.

Not a lot to be said here.
We got further than expected and bang.
However we were still in it on the scoreboard till the 2nd Rhubarb goal.
Hopefully the many 18 and 19 year olds involved will give us a good platform for this grade next year.

Great result for Mayo, any standouts in that Mayo team?

I saw them as minors 2 years ago against Kildare and nobody stood out that day, realise a lot can happen in 2 years at that age. With dropping from 21's to 20's some people are expecting too much for a lad to go straight up to the senior panel although Sean Kelly from Galway was U20 last year and was only a sub in the Connacht Final yet started for the seniors yesterday and he was one of the smaller lads physically last year.

The set up at minor until this year seemed to be very ad hoc for three or four years with mangement changes and problems with coaching appointments accross the county. What has made the difference is Mike Solan has been stable at U20 level since 2016 with a good backroom team,a lot of these lads had success with St Colmans, Ballinrobe CBS, Rice College, St Geralds and Our Lady's Bellmullet at secondary school and most importantly playing at club level in a very competetive club scene in Mayo. Westport had these lads on their All Ireland wining intermediate team, Claremorris have lads playing senior club and Bellmullet have lads competeing well at intermediate which is very strong the last 5 years in Mayo.
This has probably brought alot of these lads on strong then the likes of Johnny Maughan have been winning Senior county titles Mitchels.Playing against all time great clubs like Corofin has to be more benfifcal for a young lad than an elite training squad can ever be? Alan Brogan had a good piece about how the Dublin lads were a lot more doninant at U21 in Leinster than minor due to the fact a lot of the U21's were playing in a very competitive senior club scene rather than training exclusively in development squads!!

Yeah, I made the very same point on another thread.
Dinny had been saying that Dubs, Kildare and Meath tend to be even enough at minor level, but Dubs tend to improve heaps up to U21 level, and of course he was alluding, as he does, that it was because of the money the GAA are giving us!

But most of the minors are dropped off the Dubs panels for a year or two before getting back into the U21, and even when on the U20/21 panel, there's not a huge amount of training done at county level (until the business end when it ramps up of course) and so the lads are left with their clubs for the most part.

Good few lads from Junior and Intermediate clubs on the U20 panel....Kilmovee. Kilmaine, Ballyhaunis, Belmullet, Mayo Gaels , The Neale....
