Neither of those goals were outrageous pieces of bad fortune, a back tripping as up he hand passes and lets a forward in is bad luck, Full backs kicking the ball into their own net is just what happens when they’re caught napping
Be a bit like me claiming that the saves from Rocks attempts on goal were just outrageous bad luck for Dublin
They are adament that bastic picked the ball straight off the ground when cluxton kicked it out to him about 20 metres from goal in the last play of the game ,had a look back it on you tube and when I seen it though " oh ■■■■ ’
No comparison at all. A ball that ricochets around on a wet pitch in a crowded parallelogram and ends up in the back of the net, after a missed shot from a forward, is a freak. The backs did not “kick the ball into their own net” as you put it, and it wasn’t by dint of poor defending either, in neither case did they have any control whatsoever over the freakish and very fast deflections that the ball took.
The first one just squirts across and hits the guy on the shin before he has time to react, the second one is actually bouncing out away from goal when it collides with the back who again has no control over it and no time to react. It’s all clear as day if you look at the replays, those kind of bounces and deflections are one in a thousand and no back, no matter how good, could have done anything about them.
I agree 100% but this is a discussion about what actually happened in that drawn game, and I was responding to the revision. I’m not saying Mayo would have won but people saying they didn’t because of missed chances and Dublin doing well, whilst completely ignoring the huge impact of two utter fluke goals in a low-scoring game beggars belief.
