Disappointed with the draw and I would have liked to see both teams in the Super 8.

But really looking forward to the game. Mayo are great value when they win, and possibly even better when they lose! Armagh a good mix of tough defenders and exciting forwards as well as a what looks like a potential star midfielder.

But I think a big game from Aidan O'Shea is on the cards, and Mayo to come from behind at half-time to win by 4.

If Ah Ref is correct, then more bother for Mayo with him rumouring Diarmuid O'Connor being unavailable.

Would like to see us line up like this (assuming Horan isn't going to change tack and suddenly start playing a sweeper or even a semi-sweeper the way McLoughlin used to play)

Clarke
Barrett Harrison EOD
Keegan Plunkett Durcan
AOS DOC
McLoughlin Loftus McDonagh
Moran Coen Carr/Regan

dropping Higgins is a big call?
id leave hime on but encourage hime to attack more . he seemed to be under order not to drive forward as much as normal in newry . which is probably his best asset

Well then don't play him corner back! Corner back's first job should be to stick to his man and not give him an inch.
not at all higgnis at corner back has bee a huge attacking asset for mayo , it very much his unique role not quiet replicated by any other corner back and Mayo not be able to do  a like for like replacement ,
playing forther up the fiel doe not suit him nearly as well as we daw from some of the experiments over the years .
Hes always had the pace to cover back as well, even up to roscommon this year

Did Philly McMahon not score 1-2 in an All-Ireland Final when marking Colm Cooper???? or does he not count?

He is correct unfortunately. Unbelievable amount of midfield options out injured now. May have to chance Mikey Murray who made his debut last week off the bench, or hope Vaughan is fit enough....

choice from Stephen coen , james McCormack a half fit Seamie /Vaughan or crowe or the Drake .
maybe Jason Doherty performing a Diarmauid  type role
none ideal scenarios but I'd take Coen

Square pegs in round holes spring to mind.

On the plus side for Mayo, Vaughan and S O'Shea trained and are available for selection https://mayogaa.com/news-detail/10052817/
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

hes the best available . absolutlly dependable works like a dog  , can play anywhere from 2 to 9 .
not my 1st choice midfielder , but unless Tom parsons/s o shea make a huge recovery I don't see a better option

DOC getting injured puts a serious dent in qualifying for the Super Duper 8's. Headquarters must be worried that there will be little or no interest in the last 8 the way things are going.  Super Duper 8's without the Super Supported Mayo team would be another blow to financing Dublin GAA.

I never saw a sports administrator like the GAA with gaelic football

"From the GAA’s perspective there is no ambivalence about the impact of the development work in Dublin. The games are holding their own in the most competitive environment in the country and its main urban area and year after year Croke Park has made it clear that they have no wish to make radical alterations to the Dublin project but instead to try to roll it out elsewhere.
The impact of this on the senior inter-county championship is, bluntly, a secondary consideration unless there is a revenue meltdown"
