What about the refereeing Yew? Any sense that ye forged a serious advantage from the official all through? Any truth in the rumour that Cawley has Mayo connection, or is that fake news I read yesterday?

Replying To yew_tree:  "Our forward play can be better too. Only four points from play."
Definitely. Tommy C only getting up to speed and Cillian back soon so we'll be better in a few weeks time.

We had a makeshift full back line yesterday with all the injury absentees. Paddy Durcan ended up full back after half time. Impressive to keep that Galway forward line to 11 points.

Great to have a league title won, the new players getting a game in Croke Park and lifting a cup, hopefully not the last cup the lift this year..
Game wasn't great skills wise, but it is still only the league, neither team at there best yet. Both teams were alot more defensive than i thought they would be. Mayo new full back line played very well, Coyne was very good, Callinan did well on Walsh, McBrien was a loss when he went off.
Ruane seemed to do a marking job on Conroy which kept both out of the game. O Donoghue and O Shea played well inside, Carr was quiet. So lots to improve on for Mayo, which is good to say after a win.

Great to see some of the Galway ppl complaining about the ref, thought it was just the Mayo fans that do this according to them..Joyce blaming the ref was poor form from a manager, he trying to deflect from the bad performance from his team, more so the first half.

Fair play to Mayo. Delighted to see them with national silverware. Long overdue

Didn't hear. We've had more than our fair share of bad referees down the years and we're always told to shut up and get on with it. Few soft frees but another day we won't get them. I don't think anyone can disagree the better team won yesterday. While Mayo and Galway were not at their best it will be different if we meet again in three weeks time .

No. Ye now are totally concentrating on booing opposition free takers non stop...

Ultimately the "soft frees" were the difference as Mayo from open play only got 4 scores. Dead ball accuracy was impressive, Reape great strike on ball.

Overall positive League for both teams, well done to Mayo.

Well done Mayo on beating Galway. And do you know? But that's not fake news.

Replying To Mayonman:  "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!"
There was some silly passing on both sides, something that we all will have to change if we want to progress. Both goalies were outstanding with Reape the difference.

What about it, you on about the Galway player pulling the Mayo player to the ground off the ball and the ref only giving him a yellow card.

I see off the ball did a segment on the outrageous behaviour by Mayo fans at the weekend. Now been labelled as the " most annoying fans" in Gaelic games.

There's no place in any sport for fans booing at players. I was embarrassed in Lower Cusack to hear that booing. Not all Mayo fans I think but I can see why some see Mayo supporters as very annoying, blowing trumpets ahead of the coronation. We've won big games but, arguably, only won one big game in Croke Park in more than 72 years, haven't passed the level of reaching the '89 All Ireland. Plus we also have a scapegoat for every loss rather than fix what we can fix and improve to the point of winning All Ireland.

Please keep the whining comments to the Galway thread, thanks

Are we happy with Loftus at 6 or happier v Roscommon if it was a half backline of Hession or Callinan, Coen and Durcan?

I think they will leave him at 6, they wont take him out of there now after the whole league at 6. Its only now and last Sunday, when he will get really tested as teams will target him. He has the attributes to be a good 6 and def adds to the attacking play so hopefully he can learn quick or they tweak the system as the middle was very open at times Sunday.
Coen does a job there but id be hoping someone can come in start ahead of him and offer a bit more.

Roscommon goal came from a wrong sideline ball call on O Shea's blocked ball.

Roscommon team putting up to Mayo. Fantastic first half performance. Hopefully they can keep it going.
