Roscommon will be strong but Mayo have some talent on the team too. Should be a good game.
Looking forward to it.
Kitterick from Westport at full back is getting rave reviews, so that will be interesting.
Also step up for a lot of the minors, think midfield might be too light as lads who are 18 yrs of age are still light compared to a lad of 20 or 21.
Coen and Regan and Campbell will cause havoc and COS also at FF.

Lovely evening though going to be cold!

There's the answer.

Fair play to MidWest, you can say what you want about them but you can't fault them on their coverage of Mayo GAA..

I've heard a few people saying this, it could be a problem.

Regan has been in great form the last couple of months, hopefully he can carry that into this evening. Gallagher is obviously a key player too.

Good evening for a game alright, should be a decent crowd in there too.

As we predicted we are being beat around middle Ruane overlooked as first sub defender Was best defender in U21A club championship n reports on his Hastings appearances were good

U-21's well beaten. Roscommon better in every department, physically and technically. They took a big support too, definitely outnumbered the Mayo contingent, fair play to them but they're a hard bunch to listen to when winning

Only positives to take is that it was a young Mayo team who will learn from that and there will be a few who will definitely make the step up to senior.

Very poorly selected team No way to look past it Midfield should have been Adam Gallagher and Anthony Jordan as the runner. Jordan won more ball than both midfielders, coming on with the game already gone. Darragh Ruane should have started or at least come on and pick up Murtagh. He was the only defender with the size, speed n aggression to be able to limit him
The game was 14 scores to 9 Alot of those scores self inflicted with how we setup. The County U21 A champions Moy Davitts featured just one appearance off the bench tonight. They had a simple tactic all year get goals at one end n prevent them at the other Ruane was no 1 in that regard He held Evan Regan scoreless which is rarely done at club level Didnt make the first 8 defenders tonight!! Kept on the bench

Very poor display from us, lacklustre and idea less, a lot of blame on the side. Felt sorry for P Prendergast as he was clearly out of his dept, putting him and Diarmuid, are they both 18?, into the middle there was a big gamble and didn't work out.
Our no 2 had a nightmare and can't believe he stayed on the pitch.

O'Shea was ur stand out player. outside of that it was a learning experience for the young lads.

Rossies will be eat alive by the Dubs if they get to meet them. Big strong team but we caused all them goals ourselves.
Our record is poor at U21 for the last few years, so a review is certainly needed if we are to compete, that said I can't say we can be disappointed with a minor AI and our seniors have back to back AI appearances. I'd give up U21 success for progression in them 2 competitions.

Cracking evening for football.

Yep.

Listened to it on the radio, but from what I could make out, what little gameplan they had came unstuck when Roscommon cranked it up a notch.

I suppose it's always a hazard with very young and inexperienced players.

Was really expecting something to happen at this level this year, but they just can't seem to get it together.

Tonight was an alarm call to modernise at this level or get left behind. Solve at least one problem to start with. We were bossed physically by Roscommon. In the modern game speed n power is crucial. I don't see how some of the minors could be physically at this level Some of those young players would be eaten by the physicality of u21s in Cavan Cork Dublin n as we seen tonight Roscommon All Mayos players are all on the correct strength programs but they wont be ready for another year minimum some of them. U21 should be packed with 21/20/19 year olds in that order

Yes a lovely evening for a game of football,we were soundly beaten in all departments,full back line was all at sea.Struggled to win any ball around the middle until Conor O Shea moved out there.He was our outstanding player tonight,serious potential.
Evan Regan and Adam Gallagher had disappointing outings,the inside line were very ineffective.
That Roscommon team has a serious potential to compete at the later stages of the All Ireland series,extremely fit,slick in movement and physically strong.Huge contingent of Roscommon people in McHale park tonight.
