Mouview

Agree on everything except your view in Galway midfield
David Burke the best in the business ATM ( well bar maybe Barron) and Coen has made the transition form corner back effortlessly
Everyone is talking about Tipps full backline but B maher hasn't been his self and breen can forget to get of the bus sometimes

Galway midfield is one area that could shade it for Galway

There are plenty of mahers on the Tipp team. Still don't know what the Maher is with Barrett.
Tipps q2 meltdown seems to have been forgotten

Galway now have a FB and CHB which was not the case for some time.
And Tipp are not great the year after


If you consider last year's. AISF the teams were level.
Tipp have probably gone back a bit. Galway would be better.

Mo

I think this is like 87 which was preceded by 2 "learning experiences". Galway always need learning experiences.
2015 was a final and last year could have been.
Unlike previous models (Cloonan, Murphy ,Lane, Hayes,  Gerlock,  McIntyre) there is consistency rather than volatility.
The team is settled
 The forwards have grown up. There was something missing in 2012 and 2015.
If they do make it they have more experience than Cork. They have paid their dues.

Tipp were unlucky to lose to be fair.

Wow what a game
Canning showed up when pressure on and got them over the line
Thought B Kelly was terrible for Tipp
Persistent fouling if Tipp forwards went unpunished

After watching Armagh get crushed by Tyrone in football yesterday, it was refreshing to watch this nail-biting hurling match. Some amazing points. Thrilling all the way.

Thought it was a poor enough game with a lot of sloppiness but the closeness kept it exciting.

Joe was poor but made it count when it mattered most I guess.

The Galway backs, Tuohy in particular, seemed to have some sort of suicidal need to solo the ball out through trouble and were caught on umpteen occasions.

Galway just about deserved that! Canning may take all the attention but he was poor in parts... McInenrney was MOM for me ... Galway happy to get that type of game behind them and will be better for it... edge of seat stuff
