Replying To BeJasus:  "Hope this game isn't ruined by Galways negativity.
They can win this if they show some nerve and take Mayo on,however
sitting back just makes the game a coin-flip.

It has they makings of a great game for the neutral if both teams go for it.."
LOL they have not lost to mayo in years. They obviously have a game plan mayo struggle against. But maybe KW will send out only 12 players so there will be plenty of scores for the neutrals and he can enjoy watching mayo in the super8s

Replying To Sindar:  "Only a Kerryman would ask that question! I was in a pub many years ago in Portmagee when an elderly local lady asked me where I was from. When I told her Roscommon she informed me that she was up that way at a wedding a few years previously. "Where was that?", I enquired. "Carlow" she replied!"
Oh they are a smart much that kerry crowd lol

Replying To Mayfair:  "As a Galway man I wouldn't be at all concerned by the Mayo injuries - I am expecting a few miraculous cures before Saturday evening with some of these 'injured' players featuring; maybe they'll stop at Knock on the way to Limerick!"
What a great idea. Couldn't stop in a better place. Of course, players will have climbed Croagh Patrick by then, you seem to have forgotten about it. Galway should be very afraid so.

Replying To Breezy:  "Spot on completly unrealated nowadays. I wasnt going to bother replying to him but seeing as he is very upset let me explain

I do believe a 32 county united Ireland would be a good thing as the average English person makes it quite clear that they either dont know or care about NI especially obvious since Brexit

My comment about 3rd biggest city was a dig at a particularly annoying Galway poster and in reference to Galways claim a few years back to being the 3rd biggest city in the Rep. of Ireland which was just a nonsense boast brought about by how boundaries were interpreted.

I do apologise but like alot of people south of the border I have a habit of confusing stats when it comes to "Ireland" as apposed to Ireland"
Jaysus, talk about thin skinned. Time to get over it a chara, or would you like to have a bit of a moan about Angela's Ashes while you're at it, just to get it out of your system.

I'm hoping for a galway win.

Met some lovely mayo people down the years but I've had some horrible experiences with their supporters. Most in Donegal have.

The medias narrative is they are everyone's 2nd team. I promise you they ain't.

Both sides missing big players. If galway throw shackles off a little they might sneak it

Replying To westkerry:  "you embarrass Meath everytime you post on the HS.
You kicked 4 points against Dublin, you just about got over Offaly in Navan and were lucky againt Laois.
Id pipe down if i were you."
Classic ad hominem logical fallacy there.. the fact that he is from Meath does not discredit his argument in any way..

Indeed, in complete contrast to the sweetness and light that myself and others from Mayo have been on the receiving end from Donegal fans, particularly after the the final in 2012. Thanks for your anecdote anyway, I hope you feel better getting that off your chest.

For the sake of football I hope Mayo come through this.

'For the sake of football' Look get real. Any ills with football by and large is countrywide. Cannot be laid at one door which I suspect you are implying. I do agree we at times have been not pleasing on the eye and believe me no one is more annoyed than the core of Galway football folk. However with the player talent we have if we were more full press and direct you would see a different Galway. People though conveniently forget some of our previous performances where we shot the lights out (Ros Connacht final replay in 2016, Donegal round 4 qualifier in 2017 and last year's shoot out in the Super 8's with Kildare in New bridge). Fair enough untikely to change this wend under KW but very disingenuous to be throwing out the 'for the sake of football' line.

It is. As is, Rugby, Hockey, Cricket etc.

Does make the lads bowling maidens and hitting fours, Republicans?

Anyone for drinks in the pav after the innings?

Limerick and Galway can fight it out for 5th and sixth but Derry is 4th by a distance.

To paraphrase a well-known English soccer club, "No one likes us, no one likes us, no one likes us, we don't care!"

I for one am glad this everyone's second team nonsense has been put to bed. Not that it wasn't obviously BS anyway- I have never seen, for any other county side, the likes of the bilious comments that Mayo attract simply for announcing their team. Some of the things written go way beyond football and are quite honestly more of a reflection on the mindset of the people making them.

Incidentally, I reckon most of us have had bad experiences with other supporters at some point- I encountered some muppet from Donegal who seemed to want to rub it in the faces of all the Mayo fans he met after the 2012 final. Thankfully he was outnumbered by sound Donegal folk.

Bottom line- every county has the odd leibide fellowing them.

If England won the World Cup you'd have a Dublin born and raised lad lifting the cup. He'd inspire all the young Dubs to play cricket. We're gonna need more funding to counteract that. ;)

Yeah good man.

Thankfully the booing and abuse Paul durcan got in castlebar was called out on midwest radio by Mayo fans.

Absolute disgrace in 2013 too.

Mayo couldn't handle 2012.

Lovely people away from a GAA pitch but serious chip on their shoulder.
