Replying To LottoPlus:  "Honestly no Annaghdown man and they were a referee decision away from a county Final.
Also Sweeney should be on it and Lavelle had a great year.

1. Ruairi Lavelle, Salthill
2. David Wynne Moycullen
3. Billy Mannion, Mountbellow
4. Eoin Kelly, Moycullen
5. Cathal Sweeney. Salthill
6. John Daly, Mountbellow
7. Sean Kelly, Moycullen
8. Diarmuid Kilcommins Annaghdown
9. Peter Cooke, Moycullen
10. Tomo Culhane, Salthill

The goalkeeper situation for Galway is crucial as every goalkeeper made big errors in Club championship and as seen last year its an area of most concern.
Great to hear Ian Burke will be back in January for Galway.."
I really hope ur telling the truth and not just trying to get us all going!

Class act but as I said before he needs to be all in. The last year he played for us he looked miles off the pace. Ian Burke at full tilt is a joy to behold.

He must have maroon and white tinted glasses. Cleaned out in midfield in every game I seen. You'd feel sorry for the defence behind that midfield, not much you can do against teams like Mountbellew and Salthill if you've an ocean of space in front of you.

Anyone take a punt at the the best referees during the club championship. Just go top 3 as naming 15 might be rude!!

Frankie had a good year as always, but isnt getting in a full forward line ahead of:
13. Ian Burke 14. Dessie 15. Barry McHugh

More often than not, bringing back players who 'had enough of it', to bolster squads looking for that bit extra to get over the line, doesn't end well. Can only think of Brian Corcoran, with Cork around 2003-2005, as a very successful 'prodigal son'.

Agreed! Just think if you're talking about possible Annaghdown players he deserves a mention.

Few of the Dublin lads over the last decade too and left for a year here and there.

Of course. Jimmy Keaveney, Ja fallon, Kevin Walsh . The list goes on.
Form is temporary, class is permanent. Ian Burke falls into the second category....class.
Welcome back Ian. Super excited about his addition.

There was a Portuguese fella in a different code too.
He came back, not sure how it worked out.

That's right. Pepe went back to Porto. He's done very well for them, even at this late stage of his career. A good move for all parties.

Congratulations to Dunmore. I hope ye win Connacht and go all the way. Once a game of football broke out in the second half ye played some lovely football and were miles the better team.

Clifden and Dunmore join Moycullen in knocking out the Mayo champions. All three will be hard stopped from winning 3 Connacht titles.

Thought Dunmore looked in trouble there for a long time until about half way through the 2nd half. Suddenly they rattled off 5 or 6 points on the spin and never looked back.

That was a right slugfest in Tuam this afternoon. 7 each on 60 minutes without stating the obvious defences was on top and both had a focus on possession football in slippy underfoot conditions.

Whichever team got a goal was always going to be key and Moycullen got a little lucky to win a free just before the goal which was then taken quickly.

I think it's a home game against Tourlestrane now in the final.

It was a proper slog for sure. Real winter football.
Moycullen took control in the 2nd half but were very wasteful. I think it was 11 wides to 2 at full-time. Fair play to Strokestown for pegging back the couple of points late on to take it to extra-time.
The goal was key for sure. The short kickout is risky when handling conditions are tough and the pitch is soft. Westport weren't at the races at all last week, so that game will do Moycullen more good.
