Mayo for Sam 2019
« on: April 01, 2019, 10:57:11 AM »
Well.........

Finally, a taste of silverware in Croke Park, injects belief, can they win the big one?

Still get good odds of 11/1.

As long as they leave Cillian O’Connor on the bench, I think they can do it.

Nope.  Mayo haven't won an all Ireland since 1951 , it beggars belief how people still tip us to win it.
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

Try and book a hotel around Dublin for the night before an All Ireland, they've been a busy bunch this morning.

How many frees did Doherty/Hennelly miss?

What you gain with a few frees, you won’t get much else. Forwards yesterday worked hard. COC gets involved with too much nonsense, and isn’t clinical enough. If Mayo leave him out, they will do much better.

Coen offered very little yesterday and Doherty wasn't great either. COC walks back in that Mayo team. If Mayo had top class forwards they'd have hammered Kerry yesterday, had so much ball yesterday in good positions too and didn't take advantage.

The times I've seen COC in the flesh he puts in some shift tbf. The bit in bold, god help everyone else if O'connor isn't clinical!  :o Maybe a bit 1 dimensional?   ;D

Well as a Dub, I'd definitely prefer if COC wasn't picked!
But I doubt that would happen.

Before yesterday, you’d have said it was a possible.

Now it’s more a probable.

COC will becomes the highest scorer of ALL TIME in Championship football this summer
Anyone who thinks he shouldn’t be on the Mayo team knows very little about football
Just for reference have a look at the other nine lads in the top 10
Stafford
Sheehy
J Doyle
Gooch
Maurice Fitz
Joyce
Paddy Bradley
Stevie McDonnell
Bernard Brogan

He has a higher average than them all
Excuse me for talking while you're trying to interrupt me

So you're suggesting he's better than all those players named?

COC is such a frustrating player. Gets involved in too much niggly stuff, distracting Mayo when in their flow.

Scoring a few frees is all well and good, but I wouldn’t put him anywhere near the quality of that other 10.

A better scorer anyway.
