Kerry review, Tyrone preview – Mayo News Football Podcast 2022 E10

Mayo were narrowly edged out of it by Kerry last weekend but the next test facing James Horan’s team is approaching rapidly, as they head to Omagh on Saturday to renew acquaintances with All-Ireland champions Tyrone. In this episode of the Mayo News Football Podcast, host Rob Murphy is joined by podcast regulars Ger Flanagan and Stephen Drake, as well as by Colm Keys of the Irish Independent, to look back at the Kerry match and to look ahead to the Tyrone game.

Reviewing the match in Tralee, the lads consider the strength of Mayo’s midfield, the chances missed by the visitors and the way the contest swung back in Kerry’s favour at the finish. The David Clifford/Oisín Mullin match-up also gets a mention, as does Cillian O’Connor’s delayed return to the team and the best option for deploying Aidan O’Shea.

Turning to the Tyrone game, the lads talk about the large number of defections from their panel this year and how poor discipline has cost them dearly so far in this campaign. The ongoing dispute about expenses between the GAA and the GPA also gets a mention.

  1. I think we can all agree the main issue with the team is having more scoring forwards – ROD carried the forward line last week. With no COC or TC the onus is on others to score- like Boland last week. Can he do it consistently?

    Related to that are the wing forward positions- we’re struggling to find natural wing forwards- could do with McDonagh putting his hand up. He’s getting enough chances.

  2. The more I think about it the more I like the idea of Aidan at 6. People will say he doesn’t have the pace, but I don’t think he’s any slower than Cian O’Sullivan is he?. Aidan is a clever player and reads the game very well, as good as O’Sullivan in my opinion. It’s not a new position for Aidan as he often sits deep for club and county. So why not just leave him there.

  3. Tyrone are still pinching themselves at the handy All-Ireland they unexpectedly won and are playing poorly. They aren’t going to turn it around in a week so we should be far too strong for them.

    An expected Mayo victory.

  4. Aidan does not have the pace to play 6 unless he is in a sweeper role, if he has to man mark he would get roasted by most pacey forwards and Coen is also in the half back line, also lacks pace. Not a typical Mayo attacking half back line .Towey is not physical to play 11 esp. against a tough hard tackling Tyrone line but he may not actually play there. We typically play 2 in the front line so I can see Orme moving out with Fionn playing a third midfielder role.
    It will be interesting to see how we actually line out and how James uses this named team. Tyrone have not being playing well and their scoring return has been low so far. Hopefully we do not do them a favor and restore their confidence.

  5. I’m concerned that P Durkan and DOC are not in first 26. Looks like JH happy to continue with experiments and not rely interested in league final challenge
