Quote from: redzone on February 16, 2015, 06:42:14 PMid have thought nothing more than a Connaught final win would do. An all Ireland is a step to far, for sure so maybe a national league either. They have been getting to semi finals thus last few years but that was under horan. Don't think that the new management are going to be fit to add that bit extra. The players just are not there/good enough. A real good manager can take you that bit extra. eg harte,mcguinness. A pity that they didn't go for Mcstay. When did they last win a league out of curiosity.

These guys wanted it and they simply have to deliver now. It remains to be seen of course if they are up to it.
Quote from: moysider on February 16, 2015, 09:00:11 PMA bit off-thread but Mayo played Clare yesterday in Kinvara. From what I can glean from other fora this is the team that played. O'Malley, D McHugh, G Cafferkey, T Cunniffe, S Duffy, C Crowe, D Drake, G Duffy, A Corduff, C O Shea, J Gibbons, N Douglas, E Varley, M Forde, D Coen. 2nd half C Boyle, K Keane, A Dillon, D Kirby, M Sweeney. Narrow win again another blanket team.
Quote from: Farrandeelin on February 17, 2015, 08:45:45 PMPleased the management are giving runs to everybody, less so with the fact that they apparently went around the house again when faced with Clare's blanket defence... Nothing against Clare, but we should have known every team will go blanket against us this year.As for the title of the thread, a good season is sustaining competitiveness. That may not win many trophies, but it seems to me that a lot of people are resigned to having 4 tough seasons over the past 4 years taking a lot out of the players physically.
