Football review: Falling slowly

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 12.16.26

…or, in some cases, not-so-slowly. Monaghan’s failure at the third-last hurdle means it’s not a clean sweep of provincial champions in the semi-finals, and sees them fall down the rankings faster than Tiernan McCann after hitting a hairbrush.

Mayo are now up to third and within striking distance of the top two, while Donegal sit fourth. Tyrone, Ulster’s last remaining representative in the championship despite being beaten in its first provincial game, are up to fifth. They haven’t gone away, you know…

  1. Why wasn’t the football rankings updated after the Mayo Donegal game on Aug 8th. They were only updated after the Kerry quarter final

    1. Tom – the ratings are only updated after a full weekend; there’s no point in updating ratings between games because there’s nothing gained – the ratings of the participating teams remain the same. The post after Kerry v Tyrone also incorporated the outcome of Mayo v Donegal (Mayo leapfrogged into third).
