I’ve already said my piece about yesterday’s match at McHale Park but there are other reports you might want to check out, if you haven’t already done so. No-one Shouted Stop! has his usual insightful match report and there are other reports in the national media too, such as this one in the Indo, this from RTE or this premuim content one in the Times from Donegal’s own Keith Duggan (who, as we know, is well equipped to discuss Mayo defeats).
If it’s a witty take you want on yesterday’s events, then check out this hilarious, though not totally tongue-in-cheek, piece from An Spailpin. The man’s a legend.
If it’s player ratings you’re after or, indeed, more comment and discussions on the game, then look no further than the match thread on Mayofans.com.
That’s your lot for today, I think.
P.S. Apologies for putting up the result incorrectly yesterday evening, an error I only noticed and corrected this morning (I had the result down as 1-16 to 2-11, which would have been a two-point win for us). The math might have been wrong but at least the headline conveyed the correct message!

Cheers for the plug again WJ, hope you enjoyed your trip home for the weekend, bar the obvious 74th minute collapse. I’m still scratching my head this morning over how we lost that one,but all through the last 20 minutes I had a feeling that we would be caught come the final furlong. Still as we say it’s only the league and only better can come. But the game against Laois now is a real do or die one or we’ll be struggling to avoid the the drop to division two in a month or two.
I enjoyed it up till around 4pm! It got worse as the evening went on too, as I had to crawl back at 30 mph through most of Roscommon due to dense fog (it would have been very hard to locate the sheep there last night) and then I got stuck in a tailback into Moate (I went that way to pick up the motorway earlier – bad move). Between them, that added the guts of an hour to the journey.
It was hard to take losing like that but now’s the time of year to be learning these kind of hard lessons. They’ll really need to be revved up for the Laois game and then Kerry are coming to visit two weeks after that so the pressure is on to perform now. It’ll be interesting to see how the lads respond – this will tell us a lot more about our Summer’s prospects than a narrow win would have done.
