It will depend on how many wides Galway have. In last year’s final I think they only had 4. Anyway it is great to see 2 non old firm teams in the final.

Yeah only seafoid thinks it is a foregone conclusion. Limerick have a big chance here and they have good depth to finish strong. I wonder will dowling start.
No such thing as a foregone conclusion with Galway hurlers. If Limerick are good enough they can win.

I can't see Flanagan getting any change out of Daithi Burke and I'd suspect Gillane will be picked up by Tuohy rather than Hanbury (or Loftus) due to his ability to go for goal. Hanbury will still have his work cut out on Mulcahy all the same but Mulcahy is more inclined to pick up some nice points than bore head down on goal.

If McInerney is indeed fit, with Mannion and Harte either side Limerick will need to bypass this line when possible. It has to be noted that in the original semi-final it was really only after McInerney exited the fray that Clare made big inroads into the Galway defence.

Not sure this Limerick team would have the same speed about them as what some of the Clare lads would have had and where Clare got joy.

My gut says Galway to grind out another victory but if Limerick can keep the margin small going into the final straight then you never know and the likes of Dowling being sprung from the bench could get them over the line.
I fancy Galway to get a few goals though as the Limerick fullback line has struggled with big strong ball winners all year.
I think he also ignores Limerick's lack of experience
They will win something in the future most likely but this year might be a bit soon

Galway hurlers

1989 loss to Tipperary was sickening because of the ref, Mr Denton, and because Keady was suspended and because Antrim were in the final so it was a guaranteed all Ireland but Tipp's need was obviously greater...
91 v Tipp because it was the end of a great team
2013 losing to Clare after having been in the final the year before. And then the hoors went on to win the All Ireland. That was a real sickener

Footballers would include 1983 in a very bad final vs the Dubs who had 2 less players
2007 and 2011 getting dumped out of the championship by Meath. FFS
 And 2012 when we were beaten by Antrim.  Hardstation was ecstatic . Every cloud has a silver lining.

2005 Leinster Football Final v Dublin. Have never been as gutted leaving Croke Park.

Also 1981, Laois V Offaly.I don't remember it but my aul fella still talks about  Padraig Horans "goal" v Laois that actually went through the side netting. My uncle was Laois goalkeeper that day so it was never really forgotten in our house!
What about 1986? Laois v Wicklow. The league champions dumped out of the championship in Aughrim

'Everybody Hates Tyrone' neck and neck with 'The Game is Ruined' in the gaaboard Derby.
"Everyone outside tyrone hates us" must be bigger at this stage than "everyone hates Tyrone"

Pat Fallon from Mayo was a great midfielder
Blaney was a genius.

Boots is another good example of a player we didn't appreciate enough at the time.

To have 3 Derry men in a team of the 90s and not one from Donegal seems a bit revisionist. Of our 92 team I'd offer Martin McHugh with honourable mention to Gavigan and Tony Boyle. Donegal contested the first 4 Ulster finals of the 90s, winning 2 and took Sam home like Derry at the first opportunity. Tohill was class. I'd argue Canavans best period was in the 00s when he reached the summit.
Canavan was better in the 90s
I agree

Others I would suggest are James Nallen, Anthony Tohill, wee James McCartan, Ja Fallon and Charlie Redmond

Limerick have played Galway before and we are basing their last All-Ireland [in 2007] against the best team who every played because that Kilkenny team had you beaten before you came out," Cummins said.

"I don't think this Limerick team will go in thinking Galway are like that. They'll feel that Galway have been ahead in games but other teams have clawed them back. Limerick will think they are better than Clare and they should have beaten them so why can't we?
"The way Limerick are playing at the moment, they are the best team physically and speed-wise. Glillane and Flanagan have an X factor. If they win the middle third battle and stay in it coming down the straight, I think the Limerick fans will be standing up for the last six minutes of this game rather than heading home like the last time. That emotion will carry them home and I think Limerick will get there by a few points."

Having the hurling final mid August feels very strange
