After the disappointment of the league and relegation how will we fair out next Sunday?

Would expect Paddy Durcan will be given a man marking job on Dolan. A bigger threat from a Mayo viewpoint is McGuire who is the launchpad for so many attacks. Expect a mayo win but JH sees this as a dangerous away game with no supporters being a factor. While relegation is being downplayed the new lads who were an a high after Tuam are very disappointed with the outcome yesterday. The current Leitrim team is widely regarded down here as the strongest in 20 years with loads of young talent.

As I said before it will be very hard to lift the lads after yesterday- survival in division 3 was what this season was all about and relegation is a serious blow. Hopefully Ryan and Mark Plunkett will be fit and any chance of the lads who tested positive being back? Very hard to see us being competitive unfortunately hope I'm wrong

Anything under a ten point defeat will be a great result in my opinion.

I actually think we can run them close. Who will they put on Ryan? How will they cope with the relentless running of domhnaill? They certainly can't afford to foul, with domhnaill on the field He'll punish them. Do ye think Mayo will go defensive against us to nullify threat??

I think there is no question of Mayo going anyway other than 15 on 15 regardless of the opposition. I expect they will hope to get a an early goal or two and hope to control the game from there. I also expect they will, as against Galway, send good long ball to AOS who will again start FF. While JH is doing all he can to prevent complacency the players may not be full focused.

The thoughts of any of the big 3 in Connacht changing their gameplan to curb any "threat" from Leitrim is laughable. Just like if it was Roscommon or Galway you will struggle to keep the ball kicked out. Not winding you up, just telling you the facts.

You have been told under your many other accounts that you are not wanted here. Please take a hint. You're being pathetic.

That is true. I assume JH has one eye on Galway. Should we expect him to be trying things for Connacht final?! Galway will be gunning for revenge assuming ye both get there which is probably a gimme

What are you on about? I have no other account. If you keep the margin to 15 points it would be a great result for ye. It would be something to build on ahead of division 4 next year, getting promoted again should be the aim but will be very difficult for ye.

The big 3 haha, who is this famous big 3? There is only one traditional major game in Connacht football and that is Galway v Mayo. Any simpleton can acknowledge this fact. You are certainly here to wind up Leitrim supporters, something we wouldn't do on your own forum. Off you go and dream of being in a 'big 3'

Division 2 sides can sometimes be got at, they wouldn't be at the level of division 1 teams like Roscommon or Galway, so you catch a division 2 team like Mayo on an off day you might be able to keep the margain to double digits, you would need everything to go in your favour though. Luckily for ye that ye are not facing a division 1 team.
