It’s that time of the week again and there are a few reports in this morning’s nationals on yesterday’s FBD defeat to Roscommon – our first loss to the neighbours, by the way, since this one back in 2009 – to bring to your attention. Here they are: Irish Independent, Irish Times, Irish Examiner. Photos from yesterday in Ballinlough are available from Mayo Mick and from Sportsfile.
Both the Indo and the Times have post-match quotes from James Horan bemoaning what he called “the crazy stuff” we got up to in the second half, where he said the amount of ball we gave away was “horrendous”. James also pointed to a lack of fitness within the squad and added that “we’ve stuff to look at” before we face the free-scoring Lilywhites in our league opener two weeks from now in Newbridge. That we do.
So after yesterday’s final round of matches, next Sunday’s FBD final will be contested by Roscommon and defending champions Leitrim. That match will be played at a Leitrim venue (where exactly this will be has yet to be confirmed) with a 2pm throw-in. Who do you think will win it?
