I think long term Vaughan is more suited in that kind of role but it would need to have been road tested already for at least one game. I remember a lot of Ballinrobe match reports had him listed midfield. His percentage of scores to shots is way below Lee Keegans so that is one important point to consider. Vaughan/Keegan neither can really contest in the air that I'v seen in Mayo matches. So if going to make that kind of switch Lee Keegan would cause more damage. Keegan might be able to come short to gather kickouts from Hennelly.
At this stage unlikely to be many changes but there is one I think is worth doing with an eye towards Dublin in a final. In the 2013 final if we had properly man marked Paul Flynn I think the final would have been over at half time. Flynn had way too much time and space to pickout his pass for Bernard Brogans goal. He had a big influence throughout the game. Keith Higgins if instructed to just concentrate on Flynn for 70 minutes would at least have been getting pressure on with his speed off the mark.
If Cunniffe returns then Keith Higgins can move out. Flynn is too tall for Barrett and too quick for Vaughan. Flynn kills you with his passing not his scoring. Disrupting passing is all about the defender being as close as possible to make the pass rushed and as innacurate as possible.

Would be a really bad sign for Mayo if they were to implement such a drastic system change as breaking up their excellent half back line and playing a completely untested player at midfield ahead of several quality performers IMO.

Excellent post, yeah as much as Cluxton nullified Aidan O Shea's influence with his kickouts alongside Michael Dara McCauley's mobility. Paul Flynn's influence was immense and he does require a marker who compete height and speed wise. Who better than Zippy.
