Replying To Kickitout:  "Just wondering how come FBD is straight knockout all other provinces have min 3 games I think it be good to give fringe players game time better than training and they have the Dome no reason counties coukd not play 2 games a week they be training anyway , just a though"
Well the league is starting the end of January so maybe not enough weekends to run it that way

Replying To smallfrank:  "Can't see Walsh being taken off the frees. He was consistent last year. Does McHugh do enough from play then for a jersey. I'm not so sure. Ian Burke definitely does."
It's all based on current form. Outside of my own club players Burke is my favourite Galway player to watch. Such a sharp football brain that can't be taught. But he did lose form in his last year. I've a feeling the break will have done him the world of good but he doesn't automatically earn his jersey.

Agreed Shane was very consistent on the frees last year so no Mchughs free taking ability wouldn't get him on the team if from play he hasn't improved but it looks like it has and remember we are building a panel. What if Shane gets injured . Having Mchugh on the bench to come in would be great to keep the scoreboard ticking over.

If Mchugh makes the panel , if Burke gets a starting jersey it'll be because they have impressed in training

Connacht double for Galway clubs and it should be three from three tomorrow when Moycullen win as expected. Club football in a very healthy state.

Saturday afternoon didn't suit me to travel so had to make due with the Connacht stream but was more like a Galway stream with Ollie Turner who couldn't help himself on how biased he was probably best for a neutral.

The match itself was a high qualify game which is rare enough for finals which are normally cagey this time of year.

Dunmore looked the fitter helped by the extra week to prepare and scoring 1-16 was impressive while left a good number of scores behind them.

Seemed to be routine win for Clifden will be interesting to see how both fare in the All-Ireland series. I think its Munster and likely Kerry opposition.

Good wins for Dunmore and Clifden. Dunmore 5 clear heading into injury time but looked like another keeper error in not dealing with a high ball led to a late Dominic's goal. Been a few of those. Made it tighter than it should have been for the last few minutes.

The 11 for Dominic's had some game fetching. Must have caught 7 or 8 kickouts.

Well done to Moycullen winning minor A beating Claregalway in a nail biter after extra time..
I look at their club success and see how a young clear minded chairman in Paul Clancy seems to have major input..
Surely the way forward for clubs and county ...

That is Keith Doyle at 11, he was very impressive in the air today. A good win for Dunmore, but PJ will be worried, the goalkeeper has a major issue with the ball in and around the square. It is definitely the weakest part of the Galway team heading into next year.

You are right the Ulster champions.

Stewartstown Harps of Tyrone for Clifden

Dunmore will play Galbally Pearses (Tyrone) or Corduff (Monaghan) that match started at 6pm this evening.

Can't understand why Paul Mannion hasn't earned a call up? Will we see any of the Dunmore lads apart from Gleeson on the Galway panel next season?

Saw most of the minor final, thought Claregalway had more good players but Moycullen had a better game plan.
Their MOM thanked a lot of their senior team players for their input ,looks like a well organised club.A very entertaining
and good game of football ,bodes well for Galway football.

Dunmore played some nice football although Gleeson made it nervy towards the end with some mistakes. Slattery is a lovely player up front and they will be handful for anyone in the All Ireland series with him and Costello inside.

Some win for Moycullen in the minor final - considering Claregalway had 6 Galway minors in their ranks. Special day for Charlie Cox especially.
Best of luck to them in the senior final today - the club are on the crest of a wave at the moment.

As expected Moycullen claim the Connacht title. Took until the 2nd half to show their true worth. Peter Cooke will be a serious addition to Galway seniors next year.

Room for improvement going into AI semi final especially the 1st half performance of just 4 points and none from play.

Cooke did a pile of interviews last week and didn't really commit to Galway in any of them. In fairness I think he said he has to speak to his employers before Christmas to see where he'll be based for the first half of next year. If he's at home he'll be back in the Galway squad but if not there's no way you can fly back and over and commit to the demands of intercounty football. Believe he said he's off the US next week to meet with his work.

Moycullen have blown hot and cold since that amazing performance against Westport but wouldn't be too worried about that, they were a good bit better than all the teams in Connacht and probably haven't had to go full throttle or haven't exploded in games yet. Good position to be in though with a huge test against Kilcoo or Glen coming up, have plenty space for improvement and you know they can perform at much higher Level than they've needed to be at the last few games.
