Mayo - Aidan O Shea and that interview.

AIDAN O SHEAS interview is not in the best interests of Mayo football.His account of the managerial heave was shredded by Martin Breheny in the Indo today

I think it was more his stance than his account that was shredded Brinsley, but certainly it seems a bit unwise. If the panel needs to find itself in a siege situation, this would be the way to go about it. Maybe they need the added factor to push them harder this year... the extra few inches they all keep talking about?

Breheny going over the top with it milking his sacred cow for all its worth

Mayo players like AOS need to learn the hacks are always looking for a slip up comment. The media are not your friend. Best to say nothing at all.

Hes easy prey for journos at the minute. He needs to learn how to bat those types of questions off or else stay away from the mike altogether

I expect AOS to have his best ever year in 2017, where it matters, on the field.

My advice to AOS would be to stop doing commercial and GAA launches, keep the head down and concentrate on producing the goods in big games.

James Horan had a pop at Bernard Flynn rather crudely writing that Flynn made a " tit of himself" by having a go at Aidan for signing selfies after a challenge match against Meath. Flynn was over the top in my opinion,but he is no fool and has the 2 All Ireland medals to prove it.He also almost beat Down on his own in an All Ireland final.He always performed for Meath on the big days in Croke Park.

James rightly had a pop at Fergal Connolly an emminent sports psychologist.He has a C.V that transends many sports at the very highest professional level. He has been involved professionally at the highest levels in Soccer,Rugby and American football.His own definitive book on sports psychology is due on the bookshelves in September.He has been helping the Dubs over the last 4 years
In a wide ranging interview with Paul Kimmage in yesterdays Indo one would be impressed by the range of his professional achievements.However his pop at Aidan O Shea and his statement that "Mayo will never win an All Ireland in my lifetime" was uncalled for ,was unworthy,and clearly had no sports science evidence to back it up.

One very good point Connolly made was the mouthing of Mayo players at half time in a League game against Dublin in Croke Park when they were leading by four points at half time.Connolly encountered the Mayo players at half time as he headed for the Dublin dressing room and they slagged him off about his stats. Dublin recovered to win that game.

That incident was on Horans watch and he should have alluded to it in the Star to give balance to the content of his writing.Indeed many supporters have halos on the heads of these Mayo players and refuse to countenance any criticism of them whatsoever. The facts are that their disciplinary record is among the worst in the country. They consistently incur the ire of refs and linesmen for their mouthing,sledging and continous "debating"of decisions. On Sunday Cillian was again booked cheaply when the game was almost over.

Do what it takes to win, still missing one or two things in that depardment namely in the forwards. What do we want to go back to being nice footballers going to croke park with big happy heads on us? I know they could improve certain aspects of the discipline at least enough to be a bit more cuter.

Should we go back to the nice boys of the past. God forbid we ever have to sit in a final involving Mayo again, embarrassed that the game is over after 20mins. Mayo have a few hard players that play on the edge. As for debating a referee decision, not defending it but I think you will find many teams do it.

Are you for real? We're in the ha'penny's place compared to some teams when it comes to mouthing off to the opposition. Mayo have a hard edge to them that was absent in the 2000s in particular, and the more I hear opposition players or fans whingeing about it, the more I like it.
