Galway V Mayo

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Given the injuries and other absentees we could go with something like this:

Gleeson

Mulkerrin SAOC Heaney
O'Donnell Silke McDaid

Flynn FOC/D'Arcy

Brannigan Conroy Daly
Varley Comer Burke/Finnerty

Still a strong team considering the big name absentees.

Bizzare team. Sean Andy and Brannigan were dropped a few months ago and now starting. Not feeling very confident based on that starting 15.

Judging from the leaked video with jimmy mcguiness I can make out the following players that are not included in team at weekend: Gary O Donnell, Fintan O Currain, Sean Mulkerrins, Tom Flynn, Bernard Power, Adrian Varley, Sean Kelly, Damo Comer, Gareth Bradshaw, Gary Sice, James Foley, Keran Molloy, Dessie Conneely (not sure), Antoine O Laoi (not sure).

Brannigan has played a lot of league games already and has been very good so it's not surprising at all

There will be changes i would say.
2 midfielders very similar but a great chance for Maher if he starts, same for Jason Leonard, one of the most consistent club players in Ireland over the last 3 years, more than deserves his chance.

I can imagine they'll be one or two changes but not more than that. After Comer was speaking on radio/tv this week declaring he's fit I presume he will play and that they might move someone else to midfield. Like the look of that full forward line though.

How is this game going ahead if the Moycullen lads have covid? Or are they close contacts of cases? seems a bit dodge

close contacts of a confirmed case have to isolate. close contacts of close contacts do not. if any of the moycullen county panelists test positive then their close contacts have to isolate. its very straight forward.

on the bigger issue i think we have to accept playing with depleted teams and not ideal preparation. otherwise games would be called off left right and centre and we would have no football. some teams will be unlucky with outbreaks at the wrong time and some will be lucky. the only way for us to proceed to any type of normality is for people to suck it up.

I'm sorry but Leonard was really poor this year especially,he only seems to play well when Corofin are winning well, when the pressure came on this year against MM he was no where to be seen!! He may be there for his free taking which he is outstanding from a placed ball but in my opinion he doesn't merit a start, and i think there will be changes before throw in on Sunday

What happened in Maigh Cuileann? Did they go mad celebrating?

Are the missing non Maigh Cuilleann first choice players (Mulkerrins, Comer, etc) also close contacts of the confirmed case? The team named is miles off what we'd want for a big league game.

I think PJ and Co have changed tack based on the once in a lifetime return to the old championship format. They will know that, 1, if they see off Sligo they are in a Connacht final. 2, The winner of that Connacht final is in an All Ireland semi final and just 2 games away from Glory. Remember last year Mayo had to play 8 times to get to an All Ireland Semi. This year they have to beat Leitrim, Roscommon and Galway (bar a huge upset) to be in a AI Semi. Based on this I reckon PJ will be rightly puting all his eggs in the championship basket. Remember the championship in Connacht is just over 2 weeks away, just over 3 weeks for Galway. With this in mind, and knowing Galway are safe in Div 1 he will do all in his power to have as close as possible to a full panel available for 07/11. 9 changes on Sunday from our last outing v Meath, surely those 9 will be very keen to do well. That said, if Mayo put out their best 15, they are the most battle hardend team in Ireland, and our newcomers can expect a baptism of fire.

Given what's going on around us I think PJ will be happy with a strong performance from several players . A win would be nice but not essential. It's all about championship

Even if the Moycullen county players are confirmed cases (as opposed to close contacts) the rest of the county squad are not considered to be close contacts.
This is assuming that they haven't had any indoor contact with these players outside of the regular county get togethers which are completely outdoor based.
I imagine the Moycullen lads (if not confirmed cases themselves) are considered close contacts due to post county final celebrations etc

Correct - it's likely that if any Moycullen panelists are COVID postivie, then their county team mates will only be classed as casual contacts. Unless they've had actual indoor contact or contact away from the training pitch.

I'd say management are probably looking ahead 2 a Connaught final with mayo and maybe did not want show there full hand for Sunday providing everyone is fit and available for selection for championship I'd say Mulkerrins Kelly , comer Varley , Walsh O Donnell and either Flynn or o currain will all start only my opinion,, I woukd think the team that has being named will start Padraig usually not into picking dummy teams unless enforced through inj or Covid ,,
