Replying To brisbane:  "Apparently Galway agreed to flip a coin on who gets home advantage but mayo refused so its going to limerick for a double header and Galway mayo the second game throwing in at 7"
Double header with the Ladies replay is it?
Mayo not good record in Pearse or Mchale Park, so no surprise turning down that option

Replying To gaelicgab:  "Cillian O'Connor didn't play a minute for Mayo until coming on against Armagh. Comer and Conroy would be good for 10-20 minutes surely."
Didn't Cillian play in a challenge game in the last few weeks?

Mayo haven't beaten Galway in 16 attempts across U17, U18, U20, U21 and Senior, spanning 4 years. Not including club meetings or ladies which would add to it. Surely have to be winning this one on the law of averages?

Replying To brisbane:  "GAA need to invest some money into connacht stadiums its a joke this game has to be played in munster. Croke park is hosting concerts instead of what its got money for"
Sure we have 2 stadiums in Connacht that could host the game, but they're in the competing counties. With a neutral venue needed, Hyde Park was the other option but it's not ready to take the capacity needed yet.
You're hardly advocating for 35K+ stadiums in Leitrim or Sligo are you?
You seem to be giving out that the game's not in Connacht, but then suggesting that it should be in Croke Park.
I'd prefer Limerick over Croker as it's a shorter commute. It will also be a lot more full for the game than Croker, which will lead to a better atmosphere.

This is Galways All Ireland final and it has been that way since Walsh took charge.
I expect Galway to turn this into a dogfight and win this by grinding down this severely depleted Mayo side.
It wont be pretty.

What the f##k is this game in Limerick for? It takes over 4 hours to get from the northern part of Mayo to Limerick, Tullamore would have been closer if Dr Hyde Park wasn't available, anyway its bulls##t to say the Hyde hasn't the capacity, sure it has hosted plenty of Connacht finals. Only an eejet would expect both sets of supporters to travel on the same road to and from the game especially with the traffic issues between Galway and Claremorris. Time for the Mayo co board to grow a pair and stand up for their supporters, Dr Hyde Park or nowhere

Just heard on local radio that both sides wouldn't agree on a toss of coin for home advantage, that's just another insult to both Mayo and Galway supporters instead of a local venue whether it Salthill or Castlebar and local revenue for businesses we now have to travel for hours to Limerick, for the good of both Mayo and Galway people both co boards should resign due to incompetence, they are not working for the good of the county only themselves, resign and get somebody right in there. Pathetic

This should be a cracker. Hard to call with the injury count on both sides. Looking forward to it!

Bit unfair on Galway having to play this game in Limerick with Mayo having playing there a few times in the last few years. Almost their second home ground!

And we are not depleted? Also this thing about it our all Ireland totally misguided. Sure it was in 2016 but not now. If we open up and play football we have a good chance of winning as we have some serious forwards (some like Corofin's Martin Farragher) not getting a decent run. Unfortunately I think KW won't go high risk but IMO he should as what has he to lose. However changing tack mid season would be very risky.

If it could take a Limerick crowd at a home munster final yesterday I'd say the crowds from Galway will be OK somehow.

Strange if youre a connacht gaa fan but youre Anti connacht funding. I said "GAA need to invest some money into connacht stadiums" Translation upgrade Hyde Park so it can host Connacht finals and Qualifiers. Why do you think I want a 35K+ stadium in Leitrim???? Galway cant even hold 35k...Just because limerick is close to you it isnt the case for evenyone and has less bus and train services then dublin.

Also The distance between your home and your place of work is your commute you wont be commuting to limerick just to watch a game

I agree. Apparently your Co. Board would not agree to a coin toss although unsubstantiated. I would think both counties would have taken either Salthill or Castlebar.
