Top of the morning to you

It pales in comparison to where Rory McIlroy finds himself this morning but it’s good nonetheless to face into Monday morning in the knowledge that after two rounds we’re sitting on top of Division One of the NFL. We’re level on 4 points with Kerry but are ahead of them on points difference. We’ve also got that game in hand and our two wins from two means that we’re the only county with a 100% record. Indeed, we’re the only unbeaten team left in the Division and we’re the only team in the Division not to have conceded a goal to date. Sure, aren’t we the great fellas altogether?

After all that chest-puffing, however, it’s worth noting that everyone else has at least two points on the board at this stage too and if we were to hit the skids over the next two games we’d find ourselves much closer to the bottom than the top of the table. That said, if we were to continue our run in our next two outings – at home to Down and away to Donegal – we’d have one foot in the play-offs before facing the might of Cork, Dublin and Kerry. That’s not a bad target to aim at.

Our table-topping position may well have been completely ignored on RTÉ’s heroically awful League Sunday show last night but there’s a fair bit of coverage on Saturday night’s match in the papers and in the usual online haunts as well. Here’s your one-stop shop in this regard: Mayo AdvertiserSunday Independent, Irish TimesIrish Examiner, Hogan Stand, Breaking News, RTÉ, BBC and Setanta.

  1. Very lazy reporting by the examiner, cant see where we lost the ball due to lack of power at all on Saturday night, if anything we looked the stronger team, AOS in particular bullied midfield.

  2. I felt that we didn’t get enough bodies into midfield to pick up the breaks – half the reporting is inaccurate anyway, best reports come from fans.

  3. Why do we need deadpan journos?.As far as I’m concerned,as long as we keep winning I couldn’t give a damn what is or isn’t written.

  4. Great win and great atmosphere on Sat night. While it took approx 40 mins to escape the carpark and subsequent traffic for the Dublin road it only took 90mins after that to get home. A very enjoyable game and result. Not to mention half time entertainment! Onwards and upwards.

  5. A great night for Mayo people [one must’nt be sexist] not so much for the two points but for the performance. OK, if it were not for Colm Boyle’s bravery it would have been back in the melting pot but there was so much to be happy about, particularly the performance of Aiden O’Shea, Alan Freeman, Enda Varley and Lee Keegan. Nobody could be said to have failed to measure up but the real value will be if this can become standard performance. Armagh thought they were flying after their performance i Kerry but they were back to earth within ten minutes on Saturday last.

  6. It barely feels like the dust has settled and the teams are being named for the next match – Down team out 3 days before the match after being named this evening.
