I would agree with a lot of that. I would have preferred Armagh won but I do generally like Galway. Comer was wired in that game and I honestly thought he should have had red. Walsh while wasn't fantastic was subject to some not great treatment by Morgan so I wouldn't have his behaviour down as quite as bad as you would but still expected better from him both behaviour wise and taking the game to armagh wise.

So there you are now. Some thoughts.

It was fantastic entertainment.
Rian O'Neill is a serious player. What a huge performance. Great score at the end but he was everywhere. But he is all Armagh have. A lot of the rest of them are limited players.
The sending off was a funny one. Initally I thought it very harsh, felt a yellow was enough but looking at it again last night I can see why Coldrick gave it.
Galway are a good team. A lot of Armagh ppl felt that it was only a matter of turning up. Had heard a lot of stories of Armagh fans getting carried away. Galway didn't get caught in the hype and after they settled they went about their business with great efficiency. They did shite the togs. They need to learn how to lose games out.

The row was the row and yer man made a bollocks of himself. Everyone will get off no matter what suspensions the GAA throw at them. Coldrick made a balls of it. Contributing to a melee is the referees get out of jail card. But this is a problem of the GAAs making. They have let Armagh off all year and they will continue to behave this way. Dublin and Kerry also got let off similarly.

If the GAA are serious about dealing with the issue they need to address the mess that is the rulebook. A referees report must be sacrosanct. No reds overturned ever. No matter what. If the ref gets it wrong, he gets it wrong. Tough. Use only video to retrospectively ban for serious foul play missed by the referee. If he deals with it, then that's the matter closed. No appeals on technicalities because the report wasn't submitted in 4 different versions of Irish or this nonsense.
So Coldrick made a balls of it but the refs report must be sacrosanct. If youíre winding at least donít make it so obvious. Sean Kelly doesnít deserve to miss an all ireland semi final. Thought the ref was woeful all day tbh.

I'm not winding. If Coldrick thought he had any power he'd have lined 15 from each side. The rulebook is a mess and then by extension so was his handling of the row.
I was kind of on your side but you know what you're proving everyone's point. Armagh can do no wrong. It's their responsibility. There is a clear Armagh directive, one in all in. Can't send us all off boys. They all pumped up out of their minds like McGeeney was when he played.

Armagh are playing with the big boys now and need to realise that every single incident will be poured over. Tyrone live with this daily.

Tyrone haven't lived with it much this year anyway, they were long gone before the championship had even begun in earnest.

Sean Kelly will get off on appeal because looking at the replay he done nothing to warrant a red card. The Galway player that swung a punch at Kelly should get banned and after that it was all argy bargy stuff with very little actual foul play. But the media will make a big deal of it as usual and big bad Armagh will probably get the blame.
Genuinely hope he does get off-very unfair on him. Will Nugent and Gregís suspension carry to next year? They both deserve to get off too. 

Donít think youíll find too many people complaining if that lad gets off too.

Why Mc Cabe?

His was a deserved red.
A yellow at best imo. Split second off being a perfect tackle- if youíre getting red carded for that then may as well make it non contact

You must be the only person who thinks it's a yellow.

Dangerously high.

It doesn't matter if it's a second off or the intention was to go shoulder to shoulder.

Loads of people thought that was only yellow.

I originally thought Comer started it but seems James Morgan was shunting him and that provoked him. Not sure how accurate that is?

I don't think Kelly knew. You could tell by the look on his face he was surprised / shocked.

Donegal aren't that bad. They capitulated once beat by Derry but people say look what Armagh did to them forgetting they pretty much hammered Armagh too.

Clare weren't great but beat a division 1 team to get there. That seems to be forgotten too.

In saying that I still expect Galway to beat them.

The kickouts are a huge thing. Look at derry clare on saturday. Clare didn't press them so derry got the space to build as they wanted. You don't win your kickouts then you don't have the option for shot selection etc. Yes it's not the only thing but in hurling and football these days it's a huge thing.

I donít think the league game has any relevance to this whatsoever, Derry made 3/4 mistakes against the wind and were punished, the game was over very early and both teams will have learned little. I do think Galway are favourites tho, for two reasons, 1) I think they have the inside forwards to take scores from outside the blanket and force derry to push up and open up a little, I think Galway will score more against Derry than any team this year. 2) I think they will press the Derry kickout and get joy as Derry imo have struggled when they have had to go long and there is mistakes in Lynch if he goes short. Having said all that, I donít overly rate Galway defensively, I think they will struggle to match Derrys running game especially in transition, and if Derry are as clinical as they were at the weekend then they could get something, will need other forwards to step up and take scores tho. Overall Iíd have Galway 2/3 point favourites but wouldnít be surprised with any result.

They have to press the derry kickouts. When teams have done that this year Derry haven't looked as slick. Derry need to find a way round that as Galway are bound to push up on kickouts. I also predict Galway but wouldn't be surprised either way.

Worth a punt definitely.

It was always going to happen.

This is the thing. If Derry go with that approach IMO they will lose. Need to do what they are good at and throw the odd curveball.

Fear no way Clare beat Limerick. Tbh also can't see Derry winning AI. They've improved immeasurably but not enough. Happy to be proved wrong on that tbh.

What bar??

I would agree with the system being a lot better. It will be very interesting. I would have Galway favourites tbh but wouldn't rule out Derry beating them either. I actually think the Galway keeper being so ropy provides a dilemma for Derry. They have a system which works and would be better not deviating but if there is such a glaring weakness they would need to try and act on it too. If it ain't broke though.

Galway will not win this game.

They dont have the players to break down the Derry system - Armagh held them at bay for long periods yesterday when they had their defensive structure in place.

And going by what we saw at the weekend Derry will give the final a brave rattle as well

I think Walsh, Comer and Finnerty are as well placed as anyone to break down the Derry system.

Also it will be interesting if Kelly plays. If he doesn't then that's their main man marker for McGuigan gone. That for me will be a big factor but I'd be shocked if Kelly doesn't play.

If the eye gouge wasnít intentional then what was he trying to do? I donít understand how it couldnít have been intentional tbh.
