Okay, this is another one I really don’t want to do but it’s as well to get it out of the way early and be done with it. Comment moderation HQ isn’t exactly a ball of laughs at the moment either, by the way, but it’s at least heartening that those posting the worst kind of rubbish are the same individuals who are already snared in the process and so whose comments will never make it onto the site. Thanks to everyone else (i.e. by far the majority) who have made measured and reasonable contributions to the post-match debate.
Right – let’s start with the Mayo Advertiser where Colm Gannon has his match report and post-match reaction from James Horan. James didn’t hold back in what he had to say about his team’s display, in particular the lack of defending in the lead-up to the second goal. He does his usual “we’ll need to look at it” line but, I guess, what else would you expect him to say?
Given the result, it’s only fair to point you next towards the Oakleafers blog, which has a very even-handed match report from their perspective.
Make of all the above what you will.
Want a silver lining out of yesterday? All I can proffer in that regard is the fact that, despite going for a win for us yesterday, I’ve still maintained my 30-point lead at the top of the Allianz prediction league and so have retained a small bit of elbow room coming down the closing straight. Now it’s all down to the four Divisional finals, where I’m happy enough with three of them but there’s one that’s giving me some nagging worry. At least I’ve a few weeks to mull over it before the finals take place at the end of the month.
Right, it’s Monday and there’s stuff to be done. If you haven’t yet voted for our MOTM yesterday, then please take the time to do so – at this stage it looks as if Jason Gibbons is on his way to his third such gong for what has been an excellent League campaign for him.
