Mayo vs Leitrim... How would it have gone?

(Oldest Posts First)

How would it have gone for us if we have beaten London and been playing Mayo in the Connacht final?

well if we wernt capable of beating london as we lost to them then im afraid to think how it would have went the armagh result would look respectable to what mayo would have done to us! lets face it were not that good, were a division 4 team and one of the worst teams in that division were hardly going to beat mayo in a conaught final. Mayo were fit to introduce killian o connor miheal conroy and enda varley thats the quality they have and two cranes in midfield that can carry ball score and pass. there defence was top class aswell how many goal chances did they dive and block. its embarasing that you would put up this topic and i hope this is the only reply you get this question doesnt deserve an answer!n mayo for sam

Nope, not embarrassing at all. It's obvious that Mayo would have had a good win over us. I'm wondering though if we would have played differently to London and maybe even lost by a narrower margin. I'm under no illusions that we would somehow win (although you gotta have belief). Even before the London games, it was generally accepted by everyone that Mayo were going to beat whoever their final opponents would be.

I reckon that wit 2 or the 4 lads dropped we wuda fairer a little bit better than london.. but not much, say 8-10 pts in it. mayon on their own in connaught unfortunately.

Forget about the 4 boys they will never pull on a county jersey again,and barney still there even when he is pushed they will not play county again.

Around the same really. If ye had the 4 boys who were dropped and if Mulligan hadn't got injured ye wud have been there yesterday. But even as bad as Mayo played still would have been a 10 point game anyway.

Mayo would hammer us by 25points or more. Lads we are useless. a middlin armagh team bet us out the gate and then lost to galway.

London have 2 big pluses over Leitrim. Better team spirit and more importantly some physical power. They done much better than Leitrim would have done. At least London went in hard and let Mayo know they were there. Leitrim would just lie down and let them waltz in for goals without even so much as trying to foul them.
