    Some surprising news just breaking. Thought he’d committed to another year even announced new selectors over weekend. Has he been pushed?

    Never saw that coming if it's true, especially after the appointments last week. Unless they weren't his.

    Lack of support from the committee

    God a book of Mayo GAA player a from 2018 would sell like hot cakes

    Very odd, although a few in the Mayo thread yday were saying they felt very uneasy about how things were going with the whole appointment.




  • stink from the board, shambolic handling of it and cowardice to leave it to him to resign after the mess of today

    He jumped before he was pushed.

    Isn't it the Breaffy players calling the shots in the intercounty setup for a long time now anyway?

    Decent man by all accounts. Sad way to end it but hopefully mayo will go onwards and upwards

    Statement from Stephen Rochford:

    So have the players McGuinness lined up then? They didn't need another reason for me to want them to disappear out of any contention, but that would go right to the top of the list :D

    Apparently but I'm a dub so Mayo's destruction is all the rage in these parts.

    If they get McGuinness then it could be a great move with them.

    Say what you want about him but his transformation of Donegal was a seriously impressive achievement and they played great football in 2012 in spite of what some people want to think it wasn't all 100% defensive ****e from them.

    Breaffy Mafia

    O Shea Sr who bank rolls the setup calls the shots.

    I quite like the Breaffy set up, clubhouse reminds me of Kilmacuds in Glenalbyn same building type. I had pleasure of playing against them in a Challenger game before. Good lads, although I hate AOS.

    Well Jim is CB rep for Breaffy.

    Anyone see Jim McGs 2 proposals for how Tyrone could beat Dublin this weekend in last week's Irish times?
    The days of Mayo going toe to toe and man to man with Dublin would be over by the start of the fbd league!

    **** stir? You're saying it like you know it isn't the case when you really don't. I believe it's true and you don't, big swinging mickeys.

    Make sure to post another rolleyes though, they're very effective.

    So what exactly do you believe is true then? And can you be specific? Im genuinely interested because ive never heard anyone actually outline how this Breaffy control works in practise


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 26,661 ✭✭✭✭ OldMrBrennan83

    That's there has been strong player power in the Mayo camp for a long time now and it's a certain group.

    That's not very specific.

    Needless to say you're very short on specifics about how Breaffy players call the shots. As i suspected. Not a shred of evidence. You think the other players are going to put u with that and Rochford himself? In fact he wanted to appoint the Breaffy management team to his back room team, so how would that work then? I wonder who calls the shots at Breaffy? The players eh?


  • Registered Users Posts: 5,465 ✭✭✭ TheRiverman


    Let them appoint McGuiness and then we can watch the greatest f..k up of all time.

    No thanks and id say the vast majority of the Mayo support think the same


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 26,661 ✭✭✭✭ OldMrBrennan83


    They got a pair of managers the road and forced a distastrous goalkeeper change for an all Ireland final for a start.
    Supporters better hope it's McGuiness because it's exactly what they need to get things back run properly, whether it forces retirements or not.


  • Registered Users Posts: 127 ✭✭ bodyguard1


    Did they not sign up some Argentinian lad called Francis something the other day at knock airport, he has a huge following apparently, he was a last minute signing just before he boarded a flight to have talks with Roma

    This nonsense about Hennelly is just that, nonsense. I mean do you really think a manager is going to allow that? Yes there was a player revolt. That doesnt equate to Breaffy .calling the shots
