Mayo News football podcast: Kerry toppled in Tralee

The latest edition of the Mayo News football podcast is now available, this one covering Saturday evening’s great win over Kerry down in Tralee.

Host Rob Murphy and I were on the terrace together at Austin Stack Park and it’s from there that most of this week’s podcast was recorded. We do our in-match chat (where, as you can imagine, opinions being uttered about how the game might go altered sharply as the evening wore on) and then Seán Rice and Billy Joe Padden parse all the key issues about the match as the place was emptying out afterwards.

There’s also some discussion with Ann-Marie Kenny of Club ’51 about the phenomenon that is the Mayo travelling support, while Ger Flanagan catches up with Stephen Rochford and Stephen Coen to get their post-match thoughts on the action.

Special mention for Rob – after driving me back to the capital following the match (where I sat in the passenger seat happily bashing out the match report on the laptop and beaming it to the world via 4G), the last I saw of him was when I showed him to his quarters for the night here at ours at about 1.30AM. He was long gone – to Cardiff to commentate on the Connacht rugby game for Galway Bay FM – before I surfaced yesterday morning and then he had the podcast edited and up on Soundcloud shortly after midnight last night. Take a bow, Rob!

The podcast is available to listen to here:

  1. Improved performance by the management in that they galvanised the team into a much improved second half
    Rochford very realistic in summing up game afterwards too.
    The worries as also mentioned by ot
    ther contributors
    Clarke kickouts high floating ball rather than a good drive ideal for defenders to attack,check the statistics but surely he can practice change his style
    O Connor roaming but not available in corner forward everything chaneled through Andy Moran, who managed to be effective to the final whistle
    Same old weakness of failing to close off a game, entering the last quarter kerry were a much depleted team, yet we struggled to push on and put a decent margin between the teams

  2. Positive comments as always on the ditch.
    It was a game of 2 halves, in the 2nd half, we upped the tempo and kerry couldnt stay with us.
    A win anytime against Kerry down in Tralee is a good win.
    Onwards and upwards against the rossies.
    Best of luck to Westport, I will be cheering ye on in croker.
    Maigh Eo Abu.

  3. Yes a win in Tralee is always good. Atmosphere starting to build in westport. Theve come out the right side of two close encounters now so they know how to win tough.
    No problem s picking up a blue flag in dublin either

  4. How will each team Line out?. I think ColmCilles play in Navy don’t they?.
    Just wondering if either will opt for away/change colours.

  5. You are dead right colurs almost identical not helpful for supporters either. I hope we win the toss of the coin for that one
