Replying To centerfield:  "you come from a county that have won 2 all ireland's in their history and didn't win their province till the 70s so your in no position to be speaking about Mayos record

Also quoting Brolly says something"
No position ?

We get this a lot. The late to the top table nonsense.

We couldn't care less what we won in the 30s 50s or 70s.

I'll take the two I witnessed in person and the 1 or 2 more we might win.

Sure Wexford won 4 on the trot. I'd prefer our own run of late.

Couldn't care less about tradition..we are creating our own one now.

My club won titles in the 30s and 40s for fun..no much use now

Breezy, could you please recommend a few pubs around O'Connell St. with a good pint of Guinness? Cheers.

Might check that out. In Tom Collins' now. Lovely pint. In Jerry Flannery's a while ago, also lovely pint. Real pubs, no shiny stuff or carpets on the floor.

Bottom line 2 all irelands and one other appearance in the final is distinctly average so in no position to comment about any other teams record

Replying To greatpoint:  "What does Donegal being late to the table have to do with Mayo losing nine All-Ireland finals?"
what does late to the table mean.
Is that a polite way of saying it took 84 years to win a provincial title

In context, I'll be 51 in October, born in 1968. We last won in 1951, 68 years ago. To me that's a sign but then again I'm naively delusional. Fair play to Donegal who not only won those recent All Ireland's but knew damn well how to celebrate those great wins. Let's think about just tomorrow's game, life's way too short

You have already seen the best in Toms. Anything on the side steets of O Connell street will have a good pint and people with one exception and thats Thomas street the pedestrian one.
Also stay away from the market area til you really have to and when you do its the front bar of flannerys (different one) or front bar of Nancys.

Havnt been in town on Friday in a long time so not sure of the crowd round there.

It's not posts on Hoganstand you should be writing, but the Irish version of "The Da Vinci Code" with numerological beliefs of that magnitude. For the sheer sake of poeticism I almost hope ye do go and win the damn thing this year!


Almost.

Very very hard to call this one.

Mayo can break their recent in and out form and get over the line here despite their injuries etc.

Galway on paper should win this one, even with a 2 week break since their provincial defeat. I think they wont, as things are not rosy in their camp. The corofin lads want to play a certain way, and they are within their rights to want this, but their manager is sticking to an old failed system that wont even win them connaught any more.

So i go for a slim victory for Mayo, possibly after extra time.

The ref could have a huge bearing on this game.

Galway win it will be considered job done and have a day out in croke park
If Mayo win its one eye on the Dubs.

We need a competitive Super 8s to deliver some blows to Dublin and wear them down on route to the final.
Whoever reaches the final might stand a chance against them.
