Does McStay pick his strongest team and go all out? I think he should. We saw what happened after last years defeat and never recovered. That said I thought we'd be doing well to stay up this year so it's a nice surprise how comfortable the league has been. That said it's the league….although the fact championship is sooner may mean the league might be a better indicator of the year ahead.

It's hard not to keep one eye on the Rossies 6 days later but what better way to go into that game as league champions. We are underdogs going by the betting and neutrals opinion.

Its been a good league so far for Mayo, I think they have done alot better than what alot of people thought they would. Question being asked if they are looking more at the Roscommon game than this Sunday, I dont think you can be turning it on and off like that and you have to go out to win all games. Be interesting to see if Tommy Conroy plays, from what I heard the knee was swelling up a bit so they were resting him so see if they play him or save him for Roscommon.
Reape has done well in goals, deserves to keep his place now and has a good day with the long range frees, its a great assist to have.
Defence is where Mayo might struggle, new players and new system, they have played well but have been too open at times and Croke Park will really test them and the system. Hession big loss for Sunday but is not too far away from a return. McBrien is best match up for Comer, not sure who for Walsh maybe Durcan but needs a team effort to stop them, stop good ball into them and cover space.

Midfield will prob break even, even though Im not sure how Mayo will do on the long kickouts, Galway have the advantage in the air.

The forwards pick themselves as the line up hasnt really changed in the league, McDonagh, Carney, Flynn, O Donoghue, O Shea, Carr.
The forward unit have been playing very well. Galway will have a problem with who Kelly marks, he can attack off O Shea even though I think O Shea can get the better of him inside, or if Kelly goes on O Donoghue he would keep him quiet enough. The bigger pitch will suit Carr also. For once Mayo have a few forwards that need watching and I dont think Galway have the defenders there to keep all of the forwards quiet.

It will be a good game, think it will be high scoring. More Important for Galway to win it than Mayo.

Any word yet on the homecoming, nothing on Midwest.

Congrats on the title
Yesterday. Winning the league is no joke and we're delighted for McStay. With the twenty terrible decision to ban charity sponsorship on GAA jerseys wouldn't it be great if a Mayo and Ros wear the Mayo Roscommon hospice on their jerseys next weekend and stick two fingers up to Croke Park.

Good win in 3rd gear. Didn't think we played particularly well and should have been out of sight in first 20mins. Plenty to improve on for this coming weekend.

Some amount of whinging over on the Roscommon forum about Mayo diving and winning soft frees. You'd think they would keep their head down about that after Conor Cox a few weeks ago.

Absolutely no mention on the Roscommon forum after the league final about Mayo players diving and winning soft frees. They won the match and probably should have won by more. Enjoy the few days celebration rather than having a go at the Rossies.

Ye were the better team and deserved to win, end of story. Congrats.

Our lads were sloppy and ye were not. At the top level, and that is what Galway and Mayo are at, the difference on any given day is execution.

Yeer keeper is a beautiful striker of the ball. I was giving out at one stage when he stole a yard but shut up quick enough when he cleared the crossbar by at least 20 yards.

Best of luck next weekend!

Congrats Mayo, best team in the league won it. Galway had plenty of chances to win
but we were second best for sure. Looking forward to Connacht.

Defence needs to be a lot sharper Yew Tree. Giving away too many goal chances. Roscommon took two of them a few weeks ago and they weren't even playing well on the day. They've a lot more to offer than they showed that day.

If Mayo were in 3rd gear , then Galway were in second gear.
To be honest thats BS.
While both teams didnt't play to potential , it wasn't for the want of trying.
Aidan O shea bursting a git to defend. Mayo players diving and putting their head on the line to make blocks.
Make no mistake this was a game where both teams were trying as hard as they could.

Salty. Mayo were far from our best yesterday so we're Galway. Truth be told MAyo never looked like losing it.

Our forward play can be better too. Only four points from play.
