The Power Base of Mayo Football.
« on: July 30, 2007, 11:58:55 AM »
Following our exploits in the All-Ireland this year ::) and the performances of the clubs in our championship, I wonder has the power base of Mayo Football moved from one part of the county to another. North Mayo Clubs have in the main supplied the main trunk of the team over the past few years and previous to that again it seemed the main trunk of the team were South Mayo players.But now with some retirements from our county teams it seems the main trunk of our teams will be from East and west Mayo. This is a bit of a sweeping statement i know, as other clubs from other Mayo have supplied more than their fair share of players too. I am intrested to see what other posters on here think...

You are right re: the spread of players over the last few years having a strong North Mayo flavour, but rather than any particular area, I think, the spread is going to be more even, maybe with a very Mayocommon flavour  ;)

Mayo God Help us if the players come from the West of the county! Only Burrishoole qualified for the last 8 in the SFC!

I know there are a few Knockmore people on these boards. I hear that Damien Munnelly is playing savage stuff this year. Do ye think that he will be in JOM's plans for next year?

He seems to be scoring well indeed, always thought Munnelly needed to bulk up more a lot more to be able from Senior Inter-County, has he done that?

Power base?
We didn't have much power and even less of a base against derry.
I am finally seeing the light, we simply do not have either the players or the heart to win sam inside the next 5 years.A dose of the present lads will leave and the replacements most likely are unable to fill their boots.David Brady?Ciaran Mac?Nallen?Heaney?
Please name a replacement for any of the above in their prime.And the loss of Hanley to the b**tard game of afl is bigger blow than we know just yet.

Also reliably informed the great blond is not returning after his 10 minutes against derry when it was all over and i hardly blame him.D brady and oneill will hardly come back, they know by now its a dead horse they are flogging and 96 was the one that got away for brady and nallen who will hardly want more suffering.
JOM had better have something special planned for next year because getting hammered by derry will not be forgotten anytime soon and regardless of what players are on the field he will bear the brunt for collapsing as much as the kudos for winning.

Power base of Mayo Club Football is surely Greater Castlebar now.

Between 1995 and 2007 3 clubs within a 10 mile radius won 12 of the 13 Senior titles on offer, that's a power base. Talk to us in 10 years time and we'll see how your 'Greater Castlebar' measures up :P
