bart is right I had a few drinks on me the other night while watching back the game, so I decided to have another look at the first half pen and paper in hand, conclusion is the beer didn’t have an effect.
Dublin: 2nd min, 1/2 chance missed by Paddy Andrews.
8th ninute free missed by Rock followed by a very poor 45 miss ( Would only count as one chance as had he scored the free there would not have been a 45)
14th minute, a goal chance, but O’Gara fouled, still got a point.
16th minute Rock kicks an easy chance short.
32nd minute very poor miss by flynn.
13th minute Keegan poor miss kicked short.
15th minute Durkin poor miss.
17th minute Moran took a rushed shot, call it a miss, but I would say it was a poor option.
29th minute Cillian miss that was similar to Andrew’s one.
32 min Cillian poor enough miss from a free
Last minute Pot shot from O Connor, if it went over it would have been a great point, but more times than not it wouldn’t go over.
If both teams had taken the max from those chances, it would have meant an extra 6 points each, I am giving us two points for the gaol as we actually got one and am only giving one point for the Rock free/45 . for mayo to have gone in with a five point lead they would have needed to have gone in with a 100% scoring rate and we would have had to take only one of the missed chances.
People can have perceptions all they like but the above are stone cold facts, there were no other shots at goal or near chances.
