Until last week I’d assumed I disliked Mayo more than Kerry. Those 2 matches proved otherwise.
Today it looked almost as if Kerry thought it’d be enough to stop last week’s runs through the middle in order to win. They didn’t count on the fact that, while they have the best footballer on the pitch, Mayo have a lot more decent players than they do. And, it seems, a better manager. Certainly one that can learn in a short space of time better than his opposite.
A whole year of planning and Kerry were shown to be lacking in ideas and ability. That was there for all to see. Mayo, on the other hand, corrected the kick out messing of last week and so conceded no goals. Thats basic cop on: something even I can see.
I only wish they won by more.
