Our best 15 imo is:

1. Hennelly/Clarke
2. Barrett/Cunniffe
3. Caff
4. Higgins
5. Keegan
6. Vaughan
7. Boyle
8. Aidan O'Shea
9. Seamus O'Shea (ran close by Gibbons)
10. McLoughlin
11. Moran
12. ?????
13. O' Connor
14. Freeman
15. Conroy

There is a vacancy in the half-forward line that someone needs to grab, at the moment Adam Gallagher looks the most likely to do so. Alan Dillon when he makes his return will have something to say about it though (find it astounding hes being written off by some without even seeing him yet this year). But the likely solution IMO is Keith Higgins to be played in the half-forward line with Cunniffe and Barrett taking the two corner-back spots when they return to the panel.

Im not convinced by Adam Gallagher yet, yes he has the talent, but is a little light. And its alot of pressure for a 19 year old in his first season.

Love to see some means of accommodating Barry Moran in the team. Agreed Alan Dillon is more than likely going to be used as impact substitute this year. Is there a possibility any of the Mitchels lads can force their way into the team? The success or otherwise of the team as always will
be dependent on whither we can resurrect sufficient quality in the forward line.

There's only one capable consistent performer for 12 atm. The enigma that is Richie Feeney.. Bout to head for mullingar now, lets hope for a decent performance but most of all a win!

It's one of those games for us today, all that matters is two points. Get them and we can breath a little easier with two home games to come.

I'm looking forward to seeing how Sweeney does today. Big chance for him against a shaky westmeath defence.

On the way now myself. Hon maigh eo

Listening to the game on mid-west and they seem dominant.

oooh Hennelly caught out under a high ball by the sounds of it. Goal for Westmeath. That can't be good for him

According to Mayo GAA FB its now 2-07 each with 33mins gone, that's not good.

Exactly, Higgins won't work at half forward under the new rules...shocking the amount we're leaking every game

We need to change tactics/selection right now for the rest of the season 3 1/2 games n our defence opened up at ease in each game They were well beat against Kerry in defence only for us taking over in the middle n their poorer standard of subs in the last fifteen minutes

Drake on for Keane n Boyle goes back in full backline I dunno thought Boyle had shown corner back doesn't suit him

Nobody wants to defend in half back line only Boyle. The black card rule is suiting forwards and our full back line is under enough pressure because of this. we will win but nothing to be getting excited about

Traffic mental so said I'd post my thoughts !
Hennelly is a massive worry now . Every high ball is panic stations. It can't have been missed by managers and he will continue to me targetted in the summer.
Harrison is a good addition but it's time to get Higgins back in his best position.
Half back line is best in the county. Keegan is a joy to watch.
Not fully sure of gibbons is up to championship level but a decent cover option.
Forward wise it's time to forget about Varley and Conroy ! What do they offer ? How many more chances will they get.
If we need a score to win an all ireland I would not like to see either coming on.
Conroy can not seem to go for a ball without sliding to the ground. Cost us the 3rd goal.
And Varley is generally anonymous.
There are other options now who deserve a chance more than them .
The 2 gallaghers , Sweeney, Tom King , Evan Regan are all pushing for a squad place ahead of them. Or should be ......
