Replying To Gaagodeo:  "Potential all ireland final for winner of this imo, if dubs are avoided in semi"
The semi will be against the Munster champions Cork or Tipp. Kerry's shock defeat has really opened up that side of the draw.

Kerry were over-rated imo, one trick pony

Mildly surprised but not greatly shocked. Kerry were so open down the middle last year against Cork they could have conceded 6 goals. Same issue in the league against us.

Will Tipp put it up to Cork?

Very open championship. Mayo looked powerful but we can beat them. Need serious intensity in our play.

Are the following on the Galway panel:
Eoghan Kerin
Declan Kyne
David Wynne
Ciaran Duggan
Barry McHugh

Eoghan Kerin has a good record against Cillian O'Connor. The most polite way I could put it is they had a few enjoyable contest.
Declan Kyne the same but I think he has been cast aside
Ciaran Duggan was flying it a couple of years ago, seem to go off the scene?
Barry McHugh Id like him in for frees off the ground in november in pearse stadium

None of them, so a pointless post..

No, none of those are on the panel. Duggan is injured and the rest were dropped. No problem dropping lads, but you have to have superior alternatives to take their places. Do we have 2 better corner backs than Eoghan Kerin heading into this weekend? Are the goalkeepers that are on the panel any better than Rory Lavelle? If you took a job as an inter-county manager without having any coaching experience, would you bring in the best possible coaches with you, or would you bring in your friends?

Galway will need absolute hunger and manic work-rate in the Connacht final. If we get this I think we have the beating of Mayo. If I see manic work-rate and intense pressure when not in possession and we still lose Id take that, but not a lackluster performance a la the league.

If we don't push up on Clarke's kick-outs and allow them easy ball, they will beat us on frees alone.
There is an obsession with Duggan and Cooke on here, both played one good game against Mayo on separate occasions and get talked about on here as if they have turned into Ciaran Whelan overnight. Also for the people picking teams and starting the likes of K.Molloy, M Farragher , Kerins and so on, these guys could not start in the league, do you really think they're going to be thrown in the starting 15 against possibly the most in form county in Ireland at the moment?

Eoghan Kerin got loads of chances and got plenty of roastings. Sean Kelly, Heaney and Liam Silke all better options.
Power better than Lavelle - but maybe Lavelle as a sub. Again, had loads of chances and didn't hang onto jersey.
Not sure why you are having a crack at Joyce - Galway were flying before Covid? Divilly is more than a friend he has a proven track record as a coach.

I'd fear for us this weekend. Knockout football requires teams to be moving well, have a good structure in place and players willing to fight for every ball and not give up when things get tough, im not so sure we do at present. When mayo upped the tempo and intensity in Limerick last year a lot of our lads were found wanting. Cooke was one of a few last year and Kyne that were able to win there battles and took the game to mayo with championship intensity. Both are not involved this year. It's time now for lads that get plenty chances/hype to actually show what they are made of Daly, Silke,mcdaid, heaney are due performances. Fitness and injuries of some players should give new lads a chance. But I'd be looking for more experienced players to get their hands dirty. It's a strange year so anything can happen..
