https://westernpeople.ie/2022/10/21/mcstay-makes-big-addition-to-mayo-backroom-team/ looks like McStay finally got his goal keeping coach.
And as I touched on last weekend, the other incidents involving match officials from last weekends games are in process: https://m.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-games/48-week-bans-sought-by-mayo-gaa-after-alleged-physical-assaults-on-refs-at-two-games-last-weekend-42083783.html
Good podcast if a little waffly at times. Time to look at final going forward rather than the ifs and buts of semifinals
Ballina play a more open brand of football trusting they will outscore the opposition. Bit of ‘pep’ approach at Man City. Its working well for them so unlikely to change anything for final. Also, strength in depth.
The way they play should suit Westport. But as the panel highlighted, it was disappointing that their quality players opted out of pulling the trigger on occasions. Im sure that will be the focus over next couple of weeks. One player that can be excused from this hessitency is Conal Dawson. His role in Scotts goal was immense, flicking the ball instantly to Scott, and the rest his history.
Fascinating final in prospect. Any return of Eoghan McLaughlin would be a tipping point, but its very clear what they have to work on. Big players to stand up…
Mikey Murray was good when he came on the last day but I’d like to see a bit more before he’s brought back to the Mayo panel. Have a suspicion that he’s not much different to Fionn Mcdonagh, looks a similar type of player to me and could end up peaking as just a fringe player for Mayo that is in and out of the 26.
In saying that Mayo aren’t particularly flush with options at midfield so that could work in his favour a bit.
That is wonderful acquisition by Kevin McStay. This is the man who coached Steven Cluxton to become such a vital cog in the six in a row Dublin team
