A bit later than usual and just over 24 hours to go before the deadline for your Round 7 predictions to be done but, for the record, here’s what the leaderboard in the prediction mini-league looks like as we head into the final full round of matches. With only the Division One semi-final and the four Divisional finals left to play after this Sunday’s fixtures, this is last chance saloon for anyone hoping to make a charge up the standings. I’m back on the leaderboard – just about – but my ambition is restricted at this stage to trying to make it into the top ten. What about yourself?

Hopefully the rain will hold off for the U21 Connaught final today and Mayo will do the business though it’s a tough task ahead. All roads lead to Sligo
Minors beat Sligo in the minor league. 2-9 to 13. This next game u21 is all about our defence. We will get the scores sure enough, can we keep them contained at the other end. David Kenny and Stephen Coen I think will pickup Murtagh and Harney. Harney is too strong for all bar Coen.
Is the u21 game on mid west radio?
Fully expect Roscommon to beat Dublin tomorrow.They have a strong team out much stronger than last weekend and if things go right for them a surprise is on the cards.
Also.fully expect Mayo to get good win over Down but not enough to get to semi final.
What is hard to call is u21 but sneaking suspicion we will.come up short against good Ros team.
Think we will win this u21 game comfortable. We have the better forward line.
Yes the U21 game is live on midwest
JP, Not so sure, Ros seniors IMO are overrated, nice forwards but not much else. They do have very good under age teams who have been unlucky to win the big one, fingers crossed. Nice to read the line, we have better forward line, dont hear that too often aboout mayo teams.
Regarding tomorrow, a good win but nothing close to the score required for a semi. Personnally the outcome i would like too see is wins for Mayo obviously, Monaghan and Kerry thus relegating Cork. I just dont want to have to go back down there next year, not a good hunting ground for us and havent forgotten the first round.
looking forward to todays game. Good start with our minors winning and Also Galway hammering Roscommon minors 4-10 to 0-9. Galway were winning 3-6 to 0-1 after 17 minutes. How things change after a few weeks. Hope the trend continues.
Elsewhere Dublin U21 Meets the winners of todays game beating Kidare today 2-14 to 0-17. Pat Spillane has 2 nephews playing in U21 Provincial finals, One for Dublin, Darragh, Mick Spillane’s son and Killian, Tom’s son playing for Kerry.
Roscommon having played two games so far have the advantage going into this game. We need to start well, then we are in with a great chance. The last few years at this grade we haven’t even got out of the blocks. Keeping it tight at the back early on will be the key and hopefully the lads up front can keep up the good form that they have shown so far.
Just hoping to finish ahead of the mighty WJ in the comp!

One change from that named team, with Liam Irwin starting instead of Ciaran Harrison and a load of consequential reshuffling. There’s live match commentary on Midwest.
1-3 to 0-1 down. 14 mins gone.
I thinks the dubs will hammer the Rosses
Terribly disappointing at HT. Lucky to be 5 pts down. Ros missed an open goal too. We haven’t played at all.
It’s very noticeable how much bigger the ros players are. Physically it looks like u21 v minor.
Another half to go but only one team in it at this point.
Better start to the 2nd half. Cmon Mayo!
Yes!! I love this team!!!
Great win !!!
Brilliant result.. thought Ros had opened up to much of a lead.. great g teat come back
Mighty stuff! Great to get the win. Roll on the Dubs game!
What a second half !! Get in !!
Thx WJ. Switched over to Midwest on my phone. What a finish, great comeback to win!!
Spoke to soon Cait, what a comeback. Great heart and guts in that second half.
Wow just caught that on Midwest!! Brilliant!! Congrats lads, some comeback.
Come on Mayo!!
Gonna be a good w/end! (hopefully)
Pure class Coen & O Connor.Serious serious win!??
What a comeback, what a victory, what a team ! This was one of the most important victories in recent years for Mayo football to remain competitive in Connacht over the course of the next decade.
Cait might be talking about the seniors. I’m guessing. 😉
I just got the u21 result from the42… Fantastic achievement. But…., next time, we need to keep it tight in first 10 mins. Can’t expect to make fight backs like that too often.
Delighted for Mayo and proud of their comeback well done Mayo there’s life in Us yet
Fair play to the lads always a good day when we beat the rossies diarmuid is going to be a legend like his brother ..
What a great comeback win, a massive well done to the team. This is a brilliant team in terms of character, maybe lacking the physicality compared to other teams to win an All Ireland (partly due to an incredibly unfortunate run of injuries which have held back many of the players’ physical development) but a great set of skillful players, quite a few of whom will play senior for Mayo. Physicality is something that can be instilled in them and they can catch up on in time, natural ability is either there or it isn’t, and these lads have it in spades.
Incidentally, tonight also marks the end of Roscommon’s golden generation’s journey through underage (2010-2016). Incredibly they have finished it without a single All Ireland underage title while both Mayo and Galway, who have arguably produced weaker players overall during this period, have both won underage All Irelands.
Where is the semi-final being played?
Well done Mayo U21’s Great win dug out on a bad day. Ann-Marie you stated some time back that Diarmuid would surpass his older brother in time. I think we’re there already. Diarmuid gives 100% in every game he plays, week after week. And from listening to Midwest it sounds like he left everything out on that pitch today. Star player. Great to have the u21 trophy back in Mayo tonight.
