What a difference a week makes, eh?
Right, there’s no sugar coating this. Coverage of matches we lose is never pretty so let’s get this one over as quickly and painlessly as possible.
Stats: Stephen O’Meara.
That, thankfully, is that.
Speaking of thanks, I’d like to salute everyone commenting here after the game. Emotions always run high after a losing performance but it was good to see that, despite the critical nature of contributions, everyone, with just a few exceptions, was able to keep what they had to say broadly on the right side of reasonable. Thanks all for that, as it made my life a whole load easier once I’d completed the drive back east last night.
If you’re up for more analysis of yesterday’s game, our Final Whistle episode of the Mayo Football Podcast, recorded right after the match ended at MacHale Park yesterday, is worth a listen. Rob, Mike, Ed and I are on it and Rob also speaks with Kevin McStay. The show’s available to listen to on Patreon – here.
Finally, our MOTM poll is still up. Roscommon’s Enda Smith was, of course, the main man in yesterday’s game but it’s still a worthwhile exercise to see who you feel stood tallest for us in defeat. Back later on with the result of that vote.
