Galway not even playing at their best and still have Armagh at arms length. How are Armagh talked about as All Ireland dark horses year after year.

Goal from Tiernan Kelly was certainly one in the eye for Galway.

Soft goal conceded and a game we should have won ends on a draw. Solid performance but our kick out returns to haunt us.

That was a disaster.
You could see at the end the body language was not good. Huge challenge now to pick guys up.
13 8 up with the wind and to not get the win.
Gleeson with his now annual melt down.
Bench killed us as well, no scorers or shooters to come in.

Truly messed up there. Match Galway were in full control of should have won comfortably and drew. Looking like a quarter final at best now.

Criminal, and I thought we got most 50/50 calls from the ref.

Game won yet we conspired to throw it away, unbelievable really. So many chances to win that game but no killer instinct. Gleeson cost us the match but McDaid, Walsh and Finnerty all missed very soft point chances with Armagh 4-5 points down. Pre QF against either Roscommon, Cork or Louth/Monaghan so all is not lost but there is no All-Ireland in that group just lack the ruthlessness.

Well, everyone man and his dog knew we had a problem on our own short kickouts and it has come back to haunt us at the worst time. Can't blame anyone but themselves for that issue. Very hard to see a route now given we could play Dublin or Kerry in a quarter final.

Didn't kill the game off when we were cruising at five points up. Punching and kicking balls into the goalkeeper at this level is inexcusable.

Absolutely criminal not to win that game. Should have won it by 5 or 6 at least. The usual suspects involved in throwing it away.

Joyce needs to be asked why when 5 up with the breeze we decided to try crazy short kick outs..

Personally I thought Galway played the better football but are probably lacking a few reliable scorers up front. I think they could still win the preliminary quarter final next week depending who they get in the draw. Cork or Roscommon for example could be tricky opponents.

Not to worst case scenario next weekend. Roscommon, Cork or Monaghan should not create the same problems as Mayo last year

Can't believe that ended a draw. I know the keeper will get stick but there was mistakes up the other end of the field as well when Galway were in good positions.

2 years in a row Galway have completely thrown away wins against Armagh in the final group game. Really cost them last year. Might do the same this year.

Glesson cost us again. Time Conor flaherty is given a chance
Tomo missed easy chance which would have sealed the win. Not good enough
Can't understand how John Daly was dropped.

It really doesn't matter how much you score if you're leaking soft scores at the other end. Gleeson mixes the good with the bad. The short kickouts are a disaster waiting to happen.
