Congratulations to all of you to have drawn Sean Cavanagh in The First RTE Pundit To Write Off Mayo sweepstakes. Cavanagh appeared on last weekend's Sunday Game, and voiced his opinion that this Mayo team had finally run out of road.

They have been on the road. I know they we say it every year but for a long time now they remind me of the team that we had in 2010, 2011. Where they are capable of a big performance, they are capable of going and winning next week, but they have an awful lot of uncertainties about them. They have an awful lot of injuries, men that have an awful lot of miles in the legs. Galway have that freshness, that energy. That X factor. Galway have the momentum. Mayo are reliant on an awful lot of things aligning next weekend. If they don't align, it is a long road back. Even if they do make it to the Super Eights, it is going to really test their panel. Whether they have the legs to progress this year...

Cavanagh went on to declare he does not see a way back should they lose the tie and later in the show did not pick Mayo in his Super Eight predictions.

I don't Des. I feel they were lucky to get through the qualifiers series last year. They had a fairly weak league albeit with some injuries and disruptions to their team. I just feel we are starting to see the end of the road of this great Mayo side.


One man unimpressed with Cavanagh's prediction is former Mayo manager, James Horan.

Now coaching Westport, Horan uses his Daily Star column today to say that this Mayo squad have plenty of gas left in the tank.

Whoever wins on Sunday, though, will be very, very confident of being part of the Super 8s. It's also the case that the Connacht championship really matters to everyone.

Sean Cavanagh had his say in an RTE studio on Sunday, declaring that Mayo are no longer contenders. I can't remember the last time Sean had anything good to say about Mayo, so it was no surprise. But that bunch of Mayo players still have plenty left in the tank.
