National - Football Top 10

Replying To Belclare1:  "My point is they are not as good as they were in 2013/14, getting beat by a poor Galway team on 2 occasions show that.."
' i believe Mayo have slipped a long way in the last 2 years and are not showing any sign of competing with Dublin and Kerry'
That was your statement..
They took Dublin to a replay just last year and the year before, so I think your talking nonsense..

A few movers this week - Galway being the biggest winners and Donegal the biggest loosers over the weekend. Corks honourable performance sees them into the top 10 at the expense of Down

1.Dublin
2.Kerry
3.Tyrone
4.Mayo
5.Kildare
6.Roscommon
7.Galway
8.Monaghan
9.Donegal
10. Cork

getting beaten by galway early on in the championship is irrelevant, mayo ran the dubs as close as they ever have last year

1. DUBLIN (no change)
2. KERRY (no change)
3. TYRONE (no change)
4. MAYO (up 3)
5. KILDARE (up 3)
6. GALWAY (no change)
7. ROSCOMMON (up 4)
8. MONAGHAN (down 3)
9. DONEGAL (down 5)
10. DOWN (up 4)

The above are the Hogan stand rankings - in general these seem to be everyones top 10 with the exception of Cork replacing Down in some of our rankings. These will not change drastically between now and the end of September

I wouldn't have too many problems with that top 10, but I do think Mayo are in the most tenuous position. Any of the other teams could lose a game a as a result slip a place, maybe two. Mayo's number 3 slot is almost entirely based on their performance last year. They stumbled through the qualifiers and then, lo and behold, came within a point of lifting Sam. Consequently, no-one is willing to rule them out this year despite the fact that once again, they're stumbling through the qualifiers. A loss the next day should see them slip below Roscommon (Connacht Champions), Galway (who have beaten them every time they've met in the last two years) and possibly even Kildare, depending on how Kildare performs in the rest of the championship).

I hope no-one from Mayo takes this as a dig. I happen to think Mayo are a fascinating team this year, who can never be ruled out, but a bit of consistency wouldn't go astray.
