After another win for us yesterday – our third in a row in this year’s National League campaign – we’re sitting pretty at the top of the Division One table. That means more positive match coverage to wade through, which is never a bad way to start the week.
Let’s start this particular week, though, with a quick look at the Division One table as it stands after five rounds of games (here). This table, by the way, is compiled by the excellent GAA League Tables account (here). Anyone with a nerdy disposition in relation to information such as this – and I’ll readily confess to being in that camp – could do an awful lot worse than to follow this account on Twitter.
The table obviously looks good from our perspective. As I noted in the match report yesterday evening, we’re the only ones safe after five rounds and I can’t recall ever seeing the Division One table quite so bunched so late in the campaign.
Donegal – who we face next, up in Ballybofey, a venue we’ve never won at – look favourites for the hop but anyone from Armagh down is still in serious peril. Roscommon and Galway, while still not mathematically safe, are more likely to end up in the League final than they are getting sucked into the relegation mire.
Final word on the table – it’s nice, isn’t it, to see the top three places in Division One all occupied by Connacht teams? It’d be much nicer, of course, if those same three counties weren’t consigned to the same half of the Connacht SFC draw but that’s a different matter altogether.
Right, let’s get to that online coverage of yesterday’s rollercoaster ride against the Rossies.
If it’s audio you’re looking for, by the way, we put two separate Mayo Football Podcast shows online yesterday evening in wake of the match. We had a Final Whistle pod up little more than an hour after the match concluded and then later on last night we had a more in-depth match review pod. Both are available on Patreon. Details on becoming a club member and getting access to this and other great content are here.
Finally, there’s one report I can point you towards about Saturday’s U20 match. That’s by Michael Gallagher in the Mayo News and that’s here.
Right, that’s your lot for now. Don’t forget to vote in our MOTM poll if you haven’t yet done so – I’ll have the results of the poll later on this evening.
