The other 2 you mention were better goalkeepers than McNamara in their prime. All three were in the twilight of their careers in 1998. Mcnamara thankfully didn't last too long after that season.

I was always thought Glen Comer was a better keeper to be honest and he was playing for Corofins intermediates at the time.

I think I am correct in saying that Carraroes win guarantees them a prelim QF play off at least. Great result for them.
Unfortunately though , I think that anything other than a 1 point or 2 point win for St James against Milltown will leave them second and facing Corofin in the play off.
Not sure what happens if James beat Milltown by 3. Does it go on the head to head or scores for? I think head to heads are irrelevant if 3 teams tie and when one is eliminated by score difference ( as Milltown would be in this scenario) it does not revert to head to head to decide order of positions 1 and 2.
A really tight interesting group , but the irony is there is only 1 first prize here. Winner of group has a decent chance of making QF proper. The only real prize for finishing second is that you avoid the relegation process

Whatever about the ins and outs of that group, teams fearing relegation can breath a sigh of relief. The jimmies were Like a poor intermediate team yesterday. They now have to be favourites for the drop.

Unfortunately, relegation is not clear cut at all. There is plenty of competition for the relegation slot. Unlike our Intermediate championship , which is highly competitive, our senior championship is very poor. We have the stand out team in the country winning it every year. Behind them we have 6 or 8 mediocre/good enough teams ( Salthill, Moycullen. Killanin, Mountbellew, Annaghdown, Tuam + maybe 1 or 2 others) , with the best of these teams playing a poor style. And beyond these teams there is a bunch of teams who would struggle to retain senior status in any other tier 1 county.

Salthill at 10/1 with PPs for club championship probably not a bad bet for the championship. Hardly anyone going to beat Corofin in fairness, but of the rest, I think S/K have the best chance. M/M just not strong enough all round, Moycullen still too young and need Cooke back, Tuam too flaky and not enough threat up front - surprisingly Killanin ahead of them in the market. I feel only the seasiders have potentially the scoring power needed to take down Corofin.

Sk have a very strong forward unit but their defence is way behind corrofin and like all other teams they would struggle to contain the AI champs.
I feel moycullen are a better all round team but Cooke is a huge loss.
Corrofin unfortunately for all will walk this year more than ever they are just progressing way more than anyone else and it boils down to their club structure, just wish other clubs in Galway had a frank Morris that was able to dedicate and develop like corrofin. It would bring Galway on as a whole.
The only thing that will interest me this year will be the relegation final and inter championship

MB v oughterard or spiddeal or micheals

The only thing that can stop Corofin this year is COVID 19.

Nobody will get near Corofin, Salthill aren't close. They pulled away from St.Michaels in the last few minutes leaving a deceptive scoreline. Salthill is in the second tier of clubs. They came out of a relatively easy group last year so it's hard to gauge where they are at. They should beat Barna today but games between those two clubs are a poor standard and could hold a surprise.

There is no momentum for this championship which means teams are getting caught on the hop. I fancy Moycullen to do well and MM will build on beating Annaghdown.

Jaysus that was a poor display by salthill, think if the salthill lads spent less time getting their mullets in order and focused on their football they'd do something, embarrassing stuff.
Bringing on an old defender for another old defender when game was slipping was a poor decision from the line
They won't go far in the champo either will barna

Salthill have been running on empty for a few years. Both Armstrongs were kept relatively quiet yesterday.

Tom Curran was the winning of the match. An absolutely immense presence at full forward. Barna's two wingbacks excellent in the second half too.

Salthill looked a shambles yesterday. Barna came with a clearly defined game plan that the players clearly bought into and even with less gifted players it was enough to beat Salthill. Poor eve on the line for the much vaunted management team, Sean Conlon had them in his pocket. Salthills attacking play was not good enough, no shape or structure to it with too much individuality.

Great analysis there. It was the haircuts that cost them.
Barna are almost certain to be in the quarter-final. That's further than the last number of years and very good progress for them.

How far is far considering both will be in quarters and have great chance of making semis. As long as Corofin are avoided both will fancy their chances against any team

Barna and St.Michaels pulling surprise results. If the Barna Forwards had a better conversion rate. They could have won that by 5+. Those wides will be costly against other teams. Defensively they are very strong and other than Corofin, teams will struggles to break them down.

St.Michaels showed that the scoreline against Salthill was deceiving. Big match against Barna next, probably won't make it on account of score difference.
