While stating the obvious a game both teams don't want to lose,  especially Mayo I'd imagine, shortest route possible to the S8 is essential to any possible success. They rode their luck a few times last year, without any momentum built - one tricky away back door game and it could be curtains.

mayo want to win because they love to win and beating galway , but it wont affect their chances of winning the all ireland either way.
Mayos game plan only really really works when they give 100%

I think the loser should still make the Super 8's to be honest but all it takes is one ropey performance or one tough draw and it could be curtains.

Looking forward to it already although when these games are given the hype which I expect this one to be given they very rarely live up to expectations.

The loser has 3 weeks to prepare for a qualifier so not the end of the world for either team should they lose. David Brady seems to think its all over for Mayo should they lose but we've heard that in the previous 2 years.

thats david Brady that doesn't remember where he parks his car an hour later

 ;D
If you were any use you'd be playing.

That Connacht GAA website!

Is the U20 going to be a bit of a farces this year? Maybe not for stronger countries but we're definitely going to be missing several players due to them being on U20 panels. Think the rule this year is daft and of course favours those with greater resources.

I see the mayo blog has a match report and podcast from the league final, he's really starting to fancy himself as a journo. The ego maniac sure has a real hatred for all things Galway, even managed to criticise Comer who gave a faultless performance.

I thought that although Kerry will probably the team who suffers most, as they'll be missing both O'Se & Clifford.

Thought this was a particular gem  ::):

Comer’s a danger, for sure, but what struck me about him today was how wilful and selfish he often is on the ball. He loves taking possession moving at a million miles an hour but once he has the ball he seems never to look up, forever looking for the opportunity to show he’s the main man.

Everyone knows the way to success is to be passive. It’s the founding tennant of our defence.

The podcast is always a very good listen when he's not involved.

I'm sure they're replacing them with lads that would get on most other county teams anyway.
