You have all the answers now... after one win.. you didnt even see this coming and have been doom and gloom about Mayo football for quite a while..

Exactly. It's about developing lads as footballers and hopefully bringing them through to senior level. Our hurlers would be a prime example of winning at minor not being the be all and end all.
We've lost 2 All-Ireland minor finals and an U21 final in the last 4 years, but good players have come through or are coming from these teams.
You wouldn't think it from yesterday though. :)

Replying To Kickitout:  "A lot of soul searching required I think in last 5 years Galway have tried about 12 different goalies and still can't find one dubs had I think 5 in 25 years ,, all top teams have top class keeper who comfortab with ball and can kick it out Galway have not got one and power is not much better he poor with ball in hand can't solo it either , I think Oran Burke who was under 20 godlie last year best prospect , not for this year but after that ,,
Not enough pace at all I'n our team all the players are as fit as any county but no pace there is a difference, , Sean Andy , Maher Leonard Daly not near good enough for county Burke' should be tried centre forward not near good enough in full forward line and if he not doing it there sub need at least 6 changes v Dubs"
why is Daly getting a run with Galway could some one tell me .

Well we have another Live match on TG4 Sunday 2pm v "the jacks"
Really really hope Galway get their fingers out and give it a right good lash.
In the words of Kevin Keegan "oh I'd love to beat them"!!!

Actually lost 3 of the last 4 minor finals. 2 to Kerry and to Cork last year.

True. I'd forgotten about the 'Clifford goal' final.

Replying To Toman:  "While I might agree with a lot of what you say re under age, I don't agree with you that yesterday result won't matter when they meet again. Winning games brings out a confidence in players. If next week goes ahead I expect mayo to stay in division 1. Mayo always play better when a win is vital. How many times have we seen in the past number of years, Mayo in relegation and always avoid it. As for Galway
( and I genuinely hope I'm wrong) I would worry for them after yesterday's performance."
I hope you're right about next week Toman, although I honestly can't reconcile the way Galway performed earlier in the league with what we saw y/day, so I'm choosing, as I expect Horan and the Mayo set-up in general will, to take it as a freak or even a deception. No good team becomes bad overnight or because of one performance.

Never claimed to have any answers just giving an option as it's an in-line forum...I must have hit a nerve. IF we meet in championship is will be a close 50/50 game but we have to try stay up and then beat Leitrim and Roscommon before we even think about playing Galway again.

When you look at it we should have an outrageous U20 team in 2021, Jonathan McGrath, Tony Gill, Cathal Sweeney, Ryan Monaghan, Cian Monaghan, Cian Hernon, James McLoughlin, Paul Kelly, Conor Raftery, Aidan Halloran, Tomo Culhane, Oisin Gormley, Matthew Cooley, Daniel Cox and Nathan Grainger all underage

Replying To brisbane:  "The s&c of the players is the worst i have ever seen"
Agreed, the S&C is way off the mark now. If almost every one of our players seems to be on their ass when the pressure is on, down on their hunkers 'injured', it's because as a collective they're simply not fit enough, not strong enough, getting winded from hits, no pace for their direct opponent. And as for Damo being perma-injured, I have to question his/the team's physios prep with him. You don't see too many Dubs pulling a hamstring.

Replying To brisbane:  "Silke is not a good defender hes more concerned with attacking remember carr roasting him for that famous goal last year? Burke wont shoot or defend more concerned with passing the ball around not good for a 14. Poor guys like Leonard making debuts yesterday cant remember him touching the ball once. When i saw Gary Sice was recalled to the Galway panel i knew we were in big trouble. People need to watch last years u20s and compare them to this years to see the trouble we could be in."
Little bit of a chip on the shoulder over Corofin. At least throw in some other player so it doesn't seem so bitter

Still in disbelief regarding Sunday's performance as is most football fans. Preparations obviously haven't gone as well as expected. Strange times at the moment and when you see the difference in different match ups It is a pure sign Mayo are far superior. A huge gap between the two sides. Down to the basics. Defending & scoring.

What went on in Moycullen after the county final.

What went on in Tuam during the intermediate final
Things like that cause upset in groups.

Comer pulling up after 4 mins with a hamstring injury.

Last Sunday weeks hard session with McGuinness couldn't have helped either. If there are training programs in place through out the last few months then bang bring in a guy with a totally different out look can only bring trouble. Lads flat footed. Forwards not working hard enough. Big AOS being made look like an animal in ff. a lot of pride at stake next Sunday. Hopefully it will be restored. No need for the blame game. Across the board it was very poor. Defo as a group they can improve whether it's by Sunday or into spring 2021 I'd take either at this stage as long as there is improvement

Really do ye not rate Michael Daly in Galway? From what i have seen of him i would have him ahead of most Galway forwards. Don't rate Burke at all honestly cant understand how he is still on the team living off a few nice hand pass assits from a few years ago.

No need for the blame game!! And yet you are blaming Moycullen people, all the Galway coaches..
How do you know what sort of training session was done in Tuam last week?
Basing it on 30 seconds of a phone clip?

I'm a big fan of michael Daly but feel lately he is looking to play as a playmaker than take on his man and get scores

Didn't blame anybody. The Moycullen were pulled out of the panel and it was splashed all over the media. Jesus the lads just won their first county final and it will always have the following weeks of problems attached it it. Tell me that didn't upset things

No blame. just the group had lads taken out of it. Didn't blame the coaches either. a different guy in doing the training with new methods. A week out of a big game after months of not playing together just might of thrown things a bit. No blame. Across the board it was poor. Listen to Joyce's interview after. One statement from him tells ya he knows it was bad. And it was a hard session

7.,mcdaid or dylan wall if fit.,needs a game for galway at this stage.
8.cian darcy., developing nicely.
9.,tom flynn.,never lets us down and rock solid with massive workrate.,
10.antain o laoi if fit and available..y not..
11.p. conroy.,playing very well and can add to midfield plus great passing ability.,

Agree totally. And don't blame Moycullen one bit. No disrespect to corofin but they were getting so used of winning they didn't celebrate anymore. Anyway that's why Joyce has a panel of 35 lads and it's up to management on how they perform.
