Cant help but think mchugh wanted Dublin in the final, to beat us out the gate, god hes awful bitter....................................... Brolly is wearing thin too at this stage, his lack of respect towards non ulster counties is shocking, always tries to laugh it off as a joke

I'm really hoping mcstay is not commentating in the final, as Ill be routing for the mayo buckos, however that man could easily turn ya the other way

Have to agree, I generally agree/accept Brolly's point of View, However yesterday game wasn't over five Min's, when he spewed the poisonous " Biggest winner here is Donegal" comment, really sickened my hole, could not give us Mayo folk the chance to enjoy the victory. Maybe he had a prepared analysis/theory on Donegal V Dublin final, and had no plan B.

Mchugh seems to have small man complex, needs the attention, resulting in silly comments.

Davis is an utter and complete clown, the most unprepared analyst I have ever seen. Did any of you see his patethic ramble last week, Whealan and Mchugh just stayed quite and let him dig himself a bigger hole to climb out of, comical to Say the least. Again, as they say, "he must have pictures on somebody", otherwise maybe he pays RTE to be on the show, hair and makeup included.

Mcstay is by far the best analyst, could smile now and again, as he does come across as a bit dour.

Marc Ó Sé did well not to lamp that tool Davis tonight. Ignorant hoor.

+1 Ignorant hoor is right. Himself and McHugh gave me a headache as they tried to shout over everyone else with some incoherent waffle. Closest I've come to turning off TSG.

Just downloaded and watched TSG. Was cringing watching Davis as well. He must be pound for pound the most annoying hoor on TV . Makes me want to fire the the ketchup bottle at the screen. Marc O Se must have been on the verge of slapping him.

Aye definitely thought Davis and to a lesser extend McHugh were cutting across Marc O'Sé on Sunday night.

But surely it's Des Cahill's job to stop that from happening... i.e. make a point of going back to Marc with a comment along the lines of "Sorry Marc you had something to say before the two boys made their point, go ahead now..." 

Martin and Tony would have to get the point then?!

Just flicking through this thread and nobody has anything positive to say about Davis. He rambles and sometimes makes no sense, shouting across the other guests soo that he is heard. Marc O Se spoke well but Davis chirped in a few times before he had time to finish what he was saying. Its amazing how he is still employed by RTE. At least Brolly and Spillane make the programme interesting and have a humourous side to them as well.

McStay is one annoying man doing co-commentary but is actually quite good in the studio. Very strange how RTE put him on co-commentary for Sundays game with him being a Mayo man.

McHugh whilst nowhere near as annoying as Davis sometimes rambles as well even though he does actually make some good points. Loves to start sentences with ‘Its interesting …..’

Who will Martin Carney be supporting in the final?

 It'll be a tough one for him and while he had some great days with Mayo especially in 1985, I'd say he have to go for the county of his birth and he did play and win an (I think) an Ulster title with Donegal in 1974

Will defo be shouting for Donegal. Said as much on the radio last week. Something like his daughter goes to matches with him and she says that he is angry for an hour after Mayo lose where as it lasts a day when Donegal lose

Martin Carney and Darragh Maloney should be on commentary for the final, both very good. TSG should be getting on more people like Ciaran Whelan who actually know a bit about the modern game and don't waffle on about nonsense. Spillane is a very poor analyst who thinks he can get away with a few sweeping statements backed up by a couple of random facts (he loves to quote which forwards have scored). In my opinion, the best analysts tell you what you don't already know and give you a different insight into the game that makes you interested. Most Sunday Game analysts, especially Spillane, McStay and Davis don't. There should be a radical revamp of the Sunday Game in my view as a lot of the analysts and the time give to the coverage of each game throughout the earlier rounds of the Championship is of a very poor standard.

Anyone catch "Up for the match" on Saturday night? I think I'll download it for the laugh. I'm hoping it's still as bad as ever.
