All-Ireland SFC Final:Donegal 2-11; Mayo 0-13
Another day of great disappointment for Mayo's players, management and great supporters. For the first 20 minutes they played very nervously. The concession of two early goals was a huge blow. The backs coped well following the early blitz. The midfield, which had been so effective against Dublin, could not get into the game in the early stages and only performed in spasms thereafter. The forwards needed a better plan to overcome the blanket defending of Donegal; more support for the man with the ball, and quicker release to a colleague or when shooting. Mayo have a team well capable of winning an All-Ireland. I hope it comes soon. In the meantime, well done to Donegal!
