You'd have to expect a severe backlash from the Rossies, last years replay was their biggest embarrassment since the Gay Referendum.

On a different note, complete joke that the provincial losers get to join the qualifiers at R4. They should join at R3 and have the R3 winners facing off in R4

System is stacked enough as it is against provincial final losers. That would be a mental change tbh.

Roscommon won't fear Galway.
It''s closer to begrudgery.
At least we have nicer accents and jerseys and bus plus we never let the Normans take our land.

Lee Keegan in an interview, stated after galway match galway were much better than previous year,this time round mayo brought their A game for the 1st half anyway,the sending off did hamper their chances,but wind advantage should have saved them.roscommon are probably better in the forward division than mayo and prior to the drawn final last year, spillane stated if roscommon attacked the full back line they would win,roscommon problem was to get ball into them and I'm afraid nothing has changed there or has it? Anything can happen on the day a sending off,freak  goal but I would hope that if galway have improved as much as Mr Keegan has stated,it's a galway win.

Last two Galway v Roscommon Connacht finals went to replays. The replay date for this final is Sat 15th July and if that happens the loser of a replay will only have 6 days to recover before playing their round 4 tie and if they manage to win (stats against them) they will have to face a well rested Kerry in the last eight. Anyone else find this scheduling to be total nonsense?

It's a total disgrace that Roscommon could beat Leitrim and get beat by Galway and still are one match away from a QF. Monaghan have to beat Fermanagh, Cavan, Down, lose against Tyrone then win a R4 game to reach the same spot. The Rossies have 'er handy.

This year, yeah. Last year, we were first team out a week after our NFL semi-final loss to Kerry, travel to NY, played 5 games in Connacht (including the replay) and then 6 days to recover before we went out to Clare in last 12. However, Monaghan still only have to beat one Div 1 team to make Ulster final, and Cavan like us got relegated. Those games are better than playing challenge games, as we've been doing to teams like Wexford and Down. I would still put Mayo and Galway ahead of Tyrone, so still tougher to win Connacht.

We have an entirely different midfield and keeper compared to last year Cornetto, but when RTE are calling Dara Murtagh out for setting up goals and the Indo gives MotM to Donie Smith (black carded in the 15th minute) I'm not surprised many haven't put the effort in to do some research, like looking at the teamsheet..

Nor was getting the ball even the issue last year.

Poor Roscommon. Y'is are just a play thing for Mayo and Galway. Must get irritating.

I believe Roscommon have been tossed out by Ulster sides in 4 of the past 5 Championships.

I believe it's also 16 or 17 years since Roscommon beat either Mayo or Galway in Championship football.

Just especially for Syferus I've decided to compile Roscommon's recent Championship record against Galway and Mayo:

2002 - 10 point loss to Galway
2003 - 4 point defeat to Galway
2004 - 10 point defeat to Mayo
2005 - 8 point defeat to Mayo
2006 - 5 point defeat to Galway
2008 - 16 point defeat to Galway
2009 -  20 point defeat to Mayo
2011 - 2 point defeat to Mayo
2012 - 14 point defeat to Galway
2013 - 12 point defeat to Mayo
2014 - 1 point defeat to Mayo
2016 - draw to Galway and 11 point defeat to Galway

That's 13 games without a win and an aggregate scoring deficit of -113. I wouldn't be surprised if Roscommon add to that.

True. But in the last 4 or 5 years, outside province, Roscommon have only been able to knock out Ulster sides - Cavan a few times, and Armagh.

Beat both in 2001, previous to that in 90 and 91. High time we altered that. I believe the current group of players, right now a very young team,  have enough talent to change that.
