Keegan and Mayo getting under the Dubs' skin

Fri, Sep 30, 2016

The mind games are well under way with some former Dublin players and mentors trying to get into the head of referee Maurice Deegan in relation to Lee Keegan. It is farcical to say the least as they portray Keegan's sparring partner Diarmuid Connolly with a halo. Keegan is a born winner who plays on the edge with an impeccable disciplinary record. The only red card he received was against Kerry two years ago in the semi-final draw which of course was rescinded, enough said. Mind your own house.

The fact that Mayo displayed a never say die attitude in the drawn game while holding one of the most lethal forward units in the history of the game to a meagre nine points while conceding not one but two own goals in the process, I am baffled the bookmakers still see Dublin as the overwhelming favourites. Dublin are priced at 2/5 while Mayo have come in from 10/3 before the drawn game to 9/4 for the replay. I had a call from a very enthusiastic Mayo fan who had €100 on Mayo to start at -5 in the drawn game to win €1,200. Despite losing his bet he was still very upbeat and pointed out to me had we not scored two own goals, he would have won.
