Surely not in Connacht???
Glancy slams Galway tactics
19 May 2015
James Glancy has accused Galway of systematically fouling Leitrim in Sunday's Connacht SFC quarter-final.
Kevin Walsh's charges committed 42 fouls during the course of the game - more than Tyrone and Donegal combined! - and former Leitrim attacker Glancy was not impressed by their cynicism:
"Their physio seemed to be in on the pitch numerous times. They were going down very easily and they were wasting time, particularly in the first half," he says in The Irish Daily Star.
"I was thinking about the GPS trackers, if there was one on the Galway physio, they were were probably moving more on the field than the Galway players.
"In the second half, the stats speak for themselves. In the second half alone, they had 31 fouls. A lot of the fouls seemed to be in the middle third of the field.
"The [Leitrim] centre back [Gary Reynolds] seemed to attack but every time he went forward he got fouled. It was at least ten occasions when he was fouled, not pulled to the ground though.
"At no stage did the referee feel there was need for a yellow card. They seemed to be nearly stopping the Leitrim attack before it started."
