Is this definitely last chance saloon for this group of Mayo footballers? We have said that before. And if they lose then in the immediate aftermath they might think surely they can’t come back again. But when the turn of the year comes, players have got this great ability to be resilient and I have no doubt a lot of these Mayo players, if not them all, would be back at it again and believing, even if they did lose this final. I think it is. They’re on the road a very long time together. If you go back to 2010 before their great run started an awful lot of the same players are still involved. They haven’t had too many heavy defeats but they’ve been crushing defeats, losing Allirelands by a point. It’s not even that boys might retire if they lose again, it’s just the whole psychological damage of going at it so hard again this year and still coming up short. They’ve been talking about the ‘last chance saloon’ for Mayo for the last five years. But they’re still hanging around there. It’s hard to know. You’d have to imagine that if they don’t win it this time it would be even harder to muster the enthusiasm to go as hard at it again next year. But you couldn’t rule it out, not when they’ve qualified for four of the last six All-ireland finals. That shows incredible appetite and courage in itself. No. I don’t think so. Obviously, some players will consider their careers after the game but the majority of this team are at their peak age and will be around for many more years challenging for titles. Not necessarily as they’ve shown over the past few years that they are consistently competing at the business end of the championship. The age profile of the team is favourable, bar a few players. They’ve been written off after previous defeats before and there’s nothing to suggest this is their last chance.
