Ciaran Mac , we are back.

Yet another indication that this all seems a bit of a circus this time round

Ah, Season tickets have to be sold for entrap supporters to attend super 8 games!
Sickening Rhubarb arrogance  >:(
1 BIG CUP and 1 Cupeen so far....

So a former county Star who has been involved with development squads the last while makes the step up to senior set up and it's a circus.
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

 James Horan was ratified for a 4 year term as manager of the Mayo Senior Football team tonight, along with his management team of Daniel Forde, Martin Barrett & James Burke the latter will train the Dublin based players.

Development squads? That's the best of his credentials? Would there not be others ever so slightly more deserving? From what I've heard from Mayo fans over the years there's plenty of other reasons also why you wouldn't have him around

In 2010/11 Horan was a unflashy former player who sought to make a county that was so oft' a running joke into a professional well run outfit. He achieved that without fuss. This time around has had a sideshow about it from the moment Rochford was dumped on in that CB meeting and how he was treated thereafter.

Horan, now with a media profile (one that he cares about so much that he left midway during a major championship match of the hurling side he so publicly worked with),  decided for some theatrics regarding his interest for the job, declaring his intention not to put his name forward on national radio and TV. This allowed for the "please james" outswell he knew would come to massage his ego once the CB and fan first choice JMCG would obviously say no. Waits until the very last moment to declare to draw out the drama. Did he get his victim in the CB in the end?

Solan, who looked a fine candidate, pulls out, clearly annoyed with the process that saw people turning up to the wrong house in search of him. Will he be lost to Mayo in the future? One final hoopla for the media after months of fun with the huge name selctor on the ticket.

Hopefully exciting times ahead for Mayo next year. The game badly needs them back challenging Dublin to the limit, especially given the threshold of history that Dublin are now perched upon.

You just never know with Mayo football - it's a glorious madness and this team might just still have another kick in them yet.

Their rivalry with Dublin has defined this decade and it would be very appropriate to bookend that decade with another final clash, with history at stake either way.

They say never go back - "they" are wrong, because Horan is young enough, fresh enough, motivated enough and knowledgeable enough to give the Mayo job another serious go, unlike the majority of managers who "go back" when they're past their best.

Nice to see some of them hidings that James Horans team dished out to Galway in his last spell still rankles. More of them would do nicely.

Dubs died of boredom this year! They'll be even more bored next year as this Mayo team are done!

Not done but Mayo are in a transitional period and Horan is brought back for the rebuilding to go as smoothly as possible.

All codding aside, this is the last piece of the jigsaw for Mayo 2019 winning  national honours.

Not Mayo's fault at all but there is so much sentimental twee old guff written and spoken about them in the media it sets my radar off at this stage. I imagine many Mayo people are even sick of it.

Take a look at Willie Joe’s army and your might reconsider that last part.

Yeah Mayo might win the Div one league title in 2019 and it would be their first national title for 18 years.
