Mayo Football Podcast episode: Boyler on Derry defeat and the 20s

We decided to take a second look at the defeat to Derry before the focus turns to Monaghan.

So Colm Boyle joins Rob and Mike to talk through some of the takeaways from Mayo’s third defeat of this National League Division One campaign.

The lads chat about Mayo’s overall display, how it informs us ahead of the championship, and what we should make of the game-plan at both ends of the field.

Plus, they take a look ahead to this week’s Connacht Under-20 championship first round match against Roscommon.

  1. If kerrys Jason Foley has suffered a broken ankle from the roscommon game (which was a disgraceful tackle) then that drops Kerry right down the pecking order in my opinion. They have no depth in defence and no replacement for him

  2. 20s side is up.

    A few names missing (D Hurley, Corless & Mahedy jump out for me) but overall some incredible talent there, especially that inside line.

    Real young 26 with 5 u18s and 12 u19s… but as long as they can live with other sides physicality the pace and skill throughout the side should do well.

  3. Where is Ronan Clarke gone, is he still involved? he is the biggest name for me not named. He had a fine year at full forward in 22

  4. @Thatteamwontstart: Great year at club too, himself and Brian Reape caused havoc.

    You’d have to imagine injury for Ronan. Can’t imagine it’s a talent/form question. Fantastic player.

  5. Dara Hurley and Maheady were starters on the team last year. Also no sign of Luke Feeney, motm in the senior county final last November.

  6. Young panel, Quiet a few missing from last years squad and still eligible this year whether its to do with injury or not, Ronan Clarke, James Maheady, Cathal Corless, Dara Hurley, Adam Beirne, Jack Reilly, Brian Donovan,. Four others only making extended panel.

    Corless had a knee injury and missed the club championship was untogged for Limerick freshers as well were Jack Melvin was a starting midfielder surprised he only made the extended panel. Adam Beirne played recent for MIC Limerick in their Freshers 2 win, Jack Reilly played for Galway fresher in the championship final a few weeks back so not all are injured.
    from the 2022 team Colm Mchale chb and the 2 midfielders Jack keane and luke feeney also not making it all big lads and all had good club championships. Kyran Jordan from Lahardane surprised he didnt make it. Kilmeena well represented, Jack Mulchrone had a excellent championship.

  7. I know most of lads mentioned above are out with longer term injuries and also some opted out due to leaving cert commitments. Overall though everyone that was available has been given their chance. Agree it’s a talented squad and should be a good championship

  8. Looks a good panel. Let’s not forget that the spine of this team was really the best minor team in the country throughout 2022. Yes the AIF was a bitter disappointment, but they beat every team in the country, including Galway twice.

  9. Catcol it may be a good panel with some lads who didnt play minor like Jack Mulchrone and Darragh Reilly getting their change and deservingly so, but the spine of 2022 it isnt, CHB, Both midfieders, RHF, CHF and FF not part of this panel. Like Mayo for Sam said some of this is down to long term injuries. Wish them a speedy recovery.

  10. Looks like a strong U20 panel alright and should give the Connacht championship a good rattle, great for the players to be getting set of matches. I hope to attend the match tomorrow have to leave work early with the 5:30 throw in.

    @Supermac Jason Foley injury appeared to happen from badly twisting his ankle when falling, looks like damage to his ligaments than broken. I agree they don’t have great cover in defence to replace a top defender like him

  11. Fair play @Retrocut, I was waiting for ya to come on and clarify whats going on with them lads.

    Ronan Clarke really stood out a couple of years ago. Hope his injury doesn’t stifle his progress too much.. I personally love that Horan is in amongst the U20’s. Makes me think he could give the big job one more lash, if he see’s potential coming through.

  12. Thanks Mayomessi for the update. Disappointing to hear about long term injuries at u20. Are we back to training methods/S&C and so on?
