Not a whole lot in Longford, I safely bet.

Six different politicians at the door have promised premium tickets for the final regardless of which teams are involved.

If we manage to reach the Final the price of the ticket will be the least if our concerns

Looking at the mayo team and it's a strong team named. Hard to know how it will go but it would be mighty to win it today and give everyone a lift. Heart says a Roscommon win by 3/4 points head says mayo by 5 points.

The refereeing is brutal. Frontal charge by a Mayo player results in a point for them.

Mayo win playing poorly but will be happy with the win bur they never looked like loosing roscommon really look so disorganised 14 men back but mayo getting through the centre far to easy big game for them now against cavan and it will be a big ask to regroup

Not good enough. Same old story. Mayo could have won that game in the first half. We might not beat Cavan in two weeks and if we do we won't win the next one. It's been a horrible year. Can't remember one as bad. Just 1 win all year says it all

Deserved win for Mayo however the penalty they got should not have been allowed. And we had a decent shout for penalty ourselves before it. So frustrating in a two point loss.

Should have been a two point game before they got their 2nd goal. I think no other Div 1 team scores 1-15 against Mayo and lose yet our issues since the Dublin game last year remains which is conceding too much.

Cavan next which is a knock out match to reach the knock out stages. Didn't look good for Enda Smith late on but hopefully not a serious injury.

Personally I've been more disappointed last year and the defeat to Clare in 22
The core of this team has been on the road a long time and for whatever reason haven't scaled the heights we as supporters wud like
Might beat Cavan might not what's very clear is we're not a top 8team
Mayo at best probably top 8

Really hope Enda isn't a serious injury but I wouldn't be too hopeful, looked in a lot of distress. Clearly he was struggling with his ankle or calf, kept holding it and was not comfortable for a while before that. Should have been withdrawn before he went down, everyone around me was saying to get him off 10 or 15mins before the end. Hopefully it's not a serious issue

Roscommon are poor. We've been poor all season. Even if we beat Cavan, we won't be going further. The really disappointing thing about 2 defeats to Mayo in six weeks is that Mayo are ordinary themselves. Nothing like the Mayo team of 7/8 years ago. I'd like to know why Mark McHugh and Gerry McGowan left the management team. Therein lies the answer to how bad we've been this year I think. A total washout of a season for the senior team. At least the U20s gave us some cheer in a disappointing year. Hope Enda Smith's injury isn't serious. Looked nasty going off so wishing him a speedy recovery.

As a full year it's been as bad as anything. Last year we could look back on a good league campaign and beating mayo and drawing with Dublin. We had good moments last year but then it went horribly wrong.. this year is just defeat after defeat.

Had Mayo down to win by 5 points yet to be honest I was thinking it could well be double that margin with Roscommon having played Dublin just last Saturday gave their all for 65 minutes yet still lost by 12 points. That was unfair scheduling going up against a Mayo side that hadn't played for two weeks and had a stroll against Cavan. Even Donegal was a Victim of the scheduling today in their loss to Cork and Donegal would be one of the fittest teams around.

under those circumstances Roscommon getting within two points of Mayo was better than I expected and Mayo got a real lucky break on their penalty as 8 to 10 steps was done in the build up.

Didn't see too much commentary about unfair scheduling after we won the league last year. Mayo should have been comfortable today but fact is two poor enough teams nowhere near in the conversation for Sam.

Firstly I have to commend the Ros players & Management team for all their efforts but for some reason things seem way off with this setup.
My concern is after the earlier rounds of the league last season we have been struggling and losing matches and we have only getting worse. The Management team seem to have no plan or ability to implement one. My real sympathies is with the players who must be pulling their hair out, moral with the players is at an all time low.

Where we go from is: after this season is over which unless something changes dramatically will be over soon we bring new Management who play to players strengths. I hope to god that we can hold on to the key players for at least one more season and a few more come back. We have some of the greatest players to play for Roscommon playing yesterday who must be distraught with the current form.

Now that the dust has settled on that game I've come to the conclusion that the difference between ourselves and Mayo is they can tackle much better than we can. Lost count of the times that a Mayo man could dispossess one of our lads with the ball and they would run to the field and create a scoring opportunity. Even big Aidan O'Shea got back brilliantly to take the ball of Conor Hand I think it was. They made it look so so easy. In comparison our lads gave the Mayo lads acres of space on the ball. This is purely down to coaching and Donie Buckley has really puy his mark on Mayo football. If only we had a coach of a similar calibre. In saying all that I think Roscommon is slowly improving though with each game. The subs had a much better impact yesterday than against Dublin. I'd be confident we can beat Cavan, even without Enda. I hope his injury is not near as bad as it looked but I was very close to him pitch side and he could not put his weight on his right leg. Looked very worrying. Hopefully the 2 week break will do us the world of good and we can get the win against Cavan and who knows after that. A favourable draw and anything is possible. Anyway I live in hope. Once again the Hyde was looking great yesterday. Well done to all involved in the upgrade works. Ros Comáin abú

No argument with what you say there. Dublin weren't too worried about scheduling when they hammered Cavan and hit them for 5 goals yesterday. Mayo deserved to win yesterday but they're only marginally better than a very poor Roscommon team that have gone backwards under Davy Burke who again has plenty to say for himself in today's papers.
