Don't worry he'll be gone for a week at least when McStay and co. get their arses handed to them in Salthill.

I'd say we'll be bet out the gate - awful defence, no midfield and soft oul forwards.

It would be disappointing not to win Connacht having beaten the best team in the province already but Galway needn't go in overconfident to this match as bad things usually happen for them when they do, see the Tipperary Q-final result from last year along with a myriad of poor league results as match favourites over the last few years.

The weather conditions couldn't be any worse than they were last year for the drawn game which was a poor spectacle. You would also have to assume that Roscommon will show up and perform a lot better on the 9th July as opposed to their pathetic effort in the replayed final last year, I didn't see a huge amount of their league games but it would seem that they sacrificed league competitiveness to be at peak condition for the championship matches. Galway have improved a bit in terms of squad options and as a team in general from last year as well.

Given all that a decent match could be in prospect.

As the "Reach Connacht Final" part of our 3 year plan has been achieved we may not take this game all that seriously at all.
We might just send the development squad and keep the first 15 in reserve for the Round 4 game (against Donegal or Rhubarbs most likely).

The development panel would contain about half our starters anyways.

If Donegal make it as far as R4 they'll be doing very well indeed.

Roscommon won't fear Galway.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Sure this is a match-up of two counties that used to be good back in the 70s and 80s..

At least we have nicer accents and jerseys and bus plus we never let the Normans take our land.

It's a Connacht final. Expect the unexpected. Galway arent as good as they think. Ross aren't as bad as they think. If Ross forwards had shown some guts in the last ten minutes in 2016 they would have won ad Galway would have avoided another Croke Park embarassment
Warning. Don't try this at home unless in the company of a responsible adult

Don't be sneery. All counties, even Dublin and Kerry included, have had their bad days in Croker. Ros' didn't win last year because they weren't good enough and didn't believe in themselves enough, common traits to all losing teams.

Don't think there's anyone in Galway who think we're as good as we think we are - if you can make sense outta that.
