I see what you're doing there; but you're not codding anybody : ) This is 31 v 1 time. Everybody in Ireland will be rooting for Mayo, and the ref will certainly not be immune. Tyrone will get no breaks or soft frees at all, guaranteed. That means Tyrone would need to be winning comfortably, and nobody wins comfortably against Mayo; Dublin at their best couldn't do that. It's not impossible that Tyrone could win; but it's more likely that Mayo will win a tight game by a few points. Tyrone scraped past Kerry by a point, primarily due to better work rate and hunger. Mayo is every bit as good a team as Kerry, and they will not tire obligingly like Kerry did. Had Clifford been on for added time, Kerry would have won. If Tyrone play like they did against Kerry, it won't be enough. Tyrone scraped past Kerry by being quite good the entire game. Mayo beat Dublin more convincingly by playing one good half! If Mayo put together 2 good halves, we've had it.

Indeed the amount of soft frees that guy gets is an overlooked blight on the game.
Its time somebody was brave enough to highlight this issue!"
You think that's bad, try tussling his hair

Mayo are favourites and rightly so. They are some team even without O'Connor. Mayo to win by 3. Best of luck

You said before the semi final against kerry that tyrone would do well to keep it respectable. At the start of the year had you offered tyrone mayo in the all Ireland final they'd have bit your hand off.

And shtop with the 31v1 lark. Most of ulster will be rooting for their fellow non southerners.

No offence lad but that is nonsense. There are as many people desperate for Mayo to lose and O Shea to have a stinker as there are well wishers. Social media will back that up.

Best of luck to both teams. I just hope for a good close fought final. Mixed enough feelings about who I want to win. In short I'll be happy for either side if they get over the line. Best of luck

Really torn on this one as I've strong family connections with Tyrone but the oul softie in me would dearly love to see Mayo finally reach the Promised Land. Just make sure if ye do this time lads don't annoy any priests. Ye know what happened the last time !!

I think the winner of the game will be clear after about 20/25 minutes.

Whilst I think the 2 teams are fairly evenly matched in terms of ability and tactical approaches I think tomorrow will show that one team has already "played its final" in getting past a more fancied opponent in the semi final. So I expect one team to win with a wee bit of clear distance as opposed to the score for score draw that most of the professional pundits are predicting.

Even though this is my theory I don't honestly know which of the two will prove to have the extra step in them but I obviously hope it is my own county.

Either way I sincerely hope that the game is won by something positive rather than lost by a perceived error mistake some that some poor lad isn't castigated all over the place.

Replying To The_Fridge:  "So because Tyrone have "momentum" they automatically get 3 points? Thats the rules now? Complete nonsense."
Cheers Fridge, I already got an intelligent response from your county man... I didn't really need an unintelligent one, but now I have the full set:)

Tyrone have named same starting 15 as started against Kerry. Probably be a few alterations before throw in.

can't call it at all. Mayo are a championship bogey team for Tyrone, but it's always been close.

But the build-up has been great, plenty of excitement and colour around the towns.

Anyone else notice absolute silence from Mayo camp? Haven't heard or read anything from them at all.

Replying To Loughduff Lad:  "Do you mind me asking how you figure Tyrone are favourites based on their semi performance, but Mayo are not based on theirs? Would have thought beating the 6 time reigning champions was the more eye catching semi... Most odds I've seen have Mayo as slight favourites"
In answer to your question, I base what I said on the fact that I think Kerry was the best team in ireland in 2021 and they were beaten by Tyrone. On the other hand I think Dublin are currently a pale shadow of themselves and certainly not the team they were in previous years. The semi final between Kerry and Tyrone was a better standard than the other semi final. Of course mayo could play out of their skin or Tyrone might not be a patch on what they were in the semi final. Anyway we will find out tomorrow. Best of luck to both teams.

Staggering how the media especially RTE have utterly ignored Tyrone. Its actually irratating, listen to the village idiot Marty tripping over his tongue with gushing cliches.

That's what we expect from Rte up here in Ulster, don't think it will bother Tyrone though, they know what to expect from the southern media, think Mickey Harte done right to totally blacklist them,
I'm dreading having to listen to the Rte commentary and that panel of pundits. Cora ukSean and probably O'Rourke tomorrow?

Honestly can't pick a winner, wouldnt surprised me if it ended up in a draw. Mayo and Tyrone have been the best two teams, no doubt about. Are we in danger of over emphasising Mayo's victory over Dublin? Still it was some performance to beat Dublin. Tyrone have been brilliant so far beating Cavan, Donegal, Monaghan and Kerry, tough path to the final. Darren McCurry has been the player of the year so far.

Tyrone definitely have the better bench with McShane and Canavan. However I think Mayo will have an advantage at midfield. A draw it is. Best of luck to both teams and those travelling to the match.
