National - Mayo 2017 - a troid too far?

Replying To GreenandRed:  "So is Mayo club football, it's still club football. Varley's had plenty of chances to show he's up to intercounty standard.

I don't know what's happened Akram, may be focussing on his studies? Even as a minor he looked a good prospect. Hopefully he'll get a chance in the future if he wants it."
When I saw Akram I thought he could be Mayo's version of Jack McCaffery.
He has pace to burn.
I think it is something like that Mayo need to inject a bit of vibrancy.
They are so close to going from a very good team to an excellent team.

In fairness to the battle scarred Mayo players I don't know how they pick themselves up year after year, and start again.
They deserve credit for that on it's own,

It'd be fair to say Mayo gave no hint of anything yesterday for the future season ahead, or at least I hope they didn't. If they really want to go through the front door this year it's going to take a huge leap forward to get the better of Galway. A game plan will surely be required at the very least. As things stand Galway would have no difficulty coping with a performance like yesterday's. All SG pundits last night were only talking Dublin and Kerry and it's hard to disagree with them.
