Well, there’s the doubt that perhaps Mayo weren’t really as good as we thought they were being at half-time, therefore the great spell of scoring was as much down to their weaknesses as our attack? Keegan just looked to be really the wrong man to have on Con. Though maybe nobody else for them would have done any better.
Everyone is raving about our performance but almost nobody is raving about Kerry’s comeback.
In answer to your question, people can post honestly and get carried away at the same time! Nothing wrong at all with confidence but overconfidence is an issue I believe, if it starts to take hold in a major way.
In terms of moments that change games as you mentioned, I’m thinking more of moments at the end of games where there was nothing in it, such as 2017 when ■■■’s free hit the post and landed best for Fento. That said, Fento reacted the quickest, and very calmly. Next thing we were winning the free that Deano won the match with.
And in 2016 in the replay, Fitz makes a brilliant turnover and clearance, and right at the death CK makes a fantastic fetch in the maelstrom of the midfield. Drawn semi-final game in 15 with Mayo having come back and all the momentum with them, we calmly controlled the ball at the back. And of course, at the very end of the final in 17 there were so many small moments around the field as we held onto possession under the highest pressure imaginable.
