Lee had a foot problem (major blister I believe) and the story circulated in the county during the week. While he looked fine warming up, I believe he only had 15-20mins in him and would only be used if needed.
As for the performance, attitude was spot on yesterday. We played without fear and went back to our running game. In fairness we have played like that in games this year for flashes, 10 mins here and there but then dropping off. I can’t explain how it all just came together yesterday but it was (as a Mayo fan) great to see.
I am under no illusions though of the task ahead in 2 weeks. Yesterday means nothing unless we go all the way. That is the harsh reality of it.
Only negatives for me was have we shown our hand to Kerry? Alan Dillon coming on when really Evan Regan or Fergal Boland should be given confidence boosting game time.
