The likes of mulkerrin rob finnerty, dessie Connelly  Evan murphy will all be banished to the u20 and anyone else who is eligible bar Sean Andy o ceallaigh.its a big ask for Cunningham to step up but the signs are encouraging.with Armstrong out with a  back problem,sice retired back up is thin.sean kelly impressed but dont know is he u20 this year.johnny Duane is a good addition hope he stays with the panel.

Looking at the fixtures,as a galwayman I would realistically say we have a chance of 4pts and even that would be hard achieved.
Hope I am proven wrong

Hope this Padraic Cunningham keeps improving as for tonight's game plenty of bite and (fight) it's nice to get the win.Galway sounded like they were turning over ball which is good to hear.i don't know is the new trainer paddy tally with them yet and hopefully he can improve them even more.
Looking towards the league I think Galway will struggle along with mayo and donegal.Looking forward to gal v mayo in the league, winning this one could be the difference between staying up or relegation.

Walsh  to stay on in galway,don't think it's the most favoured but I suppose for continuation purposes not a bad thing,will the players be pleased?it's hard to know I think if you see panel withdrawals,you have your answer.

I didn't see the Sunday game tonight but read elsewhere they signed off with the song,


A coincidence or a bit of belly rubbing for mickey Harte for no interviews?

Barry Moran will be the shock inclusion to mark, donaghey.

In assessing mayo,kerry, roscommon didn't show up or were not let, you can't read too much from that.
kerry v galway I don't know, people say kerry were in 3rd gear
I wouldn't buy that totally,galway created a good 3or4 goal chances,following the same as Cork in munster final.
Kerry had the Donaghy goal ,but only created one other goal chance against a weak galway defence.
Mayo defence alot better than galway,if mayo can get enough ball to their forwards, I think it will be very close.

ah the memories,galway closed to within 2pts and I'n typical kerry style got the winning scores to win by seven,interestingly enough it was our defence under  scrutiny that year too.

Well no time to dwell on victory over donegal,it was a great recovery from the connacht final,to be honest yesterday's match was similar to the connacht final in that donegal didn't turn up.
Well now it's kerry,they say if you are going to catch then it's at this stage as they come in cold,cork in fairness showed that were no slouches against mayo,it does add weight to Kerry's munster final victory.I am looking forward to a great game,I just think kerry will use the wide open spaces that will stretch our backline to breaking point.

Galway could have a surprise starter today in Ian Burke,I suppose there is no time like the present,that would bring to four the changes from roscommon, power,Burke,Armstrong,sice/steede.
Will it be enough let's hope so!!!

M.breheny independent sport.

The cold, hard facts of life for Connacht final losers leave Galway footballers facing a massive psychological challenge as they prepare for Saturday's qualifier clash with Donegal in Markievicz Park.
It won't be much easier for Leinster runners-up Kildare as they look ahead to their meeting with Armagh on Saturday week.

Beaten Connacht finalists have the worst record of any province in Round 4 qualifiers; winning only three of 16 games since the back-door championship format was introduced in 2001.

All four provincial finals produced big wins, which adds to the pressure on the losers as they bid to relaunch their All-Ireland ambitions.

Galway's case is especially acute, since unlike Cork, Kildare and Down, they were overwhelming favourites to win the Connacht final.

However, they were blitzed by Roscommon who won by nine points in what was Galway's biggest Connacht final defeat since losing to Mayo by 16 points.
"A big defeat like that takes it out of you," added Joyce.
"However hard you try, you're going to be down in the dumps for a week or so. It leaves only a few days to get right for the qualifier game against a team that has a few wins behind them.

"They have a different mindset, having recovered from the provincial quarter-final or semi-final defeat," said Joyce.

Galway manager Kevin Walsh will be looking for a similar response from his squad. Joyce was as puzzled as the rest of Galway by the poor performance against Roscommon but suspects that the aftermath of beating Mayo for a second successive year could have been a factor.

"Most people thought after the Mayo game that Galway would win the Connacht final, especially after the way they beat Roscommon last year. That can get through to players however hard they try to ignore it," said Joyce.

Despite that big setback, he believes that Galway could beat Donegal if they play to their full capabilities.
"That's the big question. Will they be able to put the Roscommon game behind them and get back to their best? Inconsistency has been an issue for Galway, not just over the last year or two, but for ten years. Most people think Donegal will beat them but that's the very time they could turn it on," said Joyce.

"Apart from the disappointment of losing and the knock to your confidence, you're coming up against a team with a few wins. They're thinking that if you lost your last game, you can lose the next one too," said Joyce.
"It's even worse when you're coming off a big defeat. Donegal will be looking at Galway and saying, 'if that's what happened them against Roscommon, why should we have any fears, especially since we beat them in the qualifiers before?'

"Galway have to put all that out of their minds and get back to the positive mindset that helped them beat Mayo for the last two years. If they do, they have a great chance,"

Ryan agrees that how players react mentally is crucial to their prospects after a provincial final defeat.
"In Galway's case, they had a very good year up to the Roscommon game, winning promotion to Division 1 and beating Mayo," he said.

"They'll be thinking, 'we were on the right lines, everything can't have gone from us in one game, what have we learned from the Connacht final and how will be make it count?' That will be very important for them."

Donegal have beaten Galway in their last three championship clashes.
