Gaillimh v Maigh Eo, Staid na Gaoithe, 1400, 10-Fea-2018

Galway almost safe after 2 wins from 2 so far, another win here would practically guarantee D1 football next year.

After a somewhat fortuitous win against Monaghan, we came badly unstuck against Kerry.

Bookies have us as marginal favourites to end our losing streak to the neighbours

It'll be a hard one for Mayo. Unfortunately it seems Galway are flying it. I think they will win on Sunday too.  :-\

Hardly any need for a separate thread for this out of the Division One discussion, it's only February.

It’s only a warmup for the FBD final anyways.

The arrogance has been coming from only one side of the border this decade and it isn't our side, and Mayo have earned that right.

Hard to know how this one will go. Maybe a touch of the phoney war about it with both sides meeting again in May. Neither side are desperate for league points either. Mayo might not want to lose a 4th game on the bounce to Galway though. Just in case they start getting notions about themselves. So that little bit of extra motivation might be on their side on the day but who knows.

Not to mention there is Sigerson quarter finals the middle of this week too with a number of players involved in those.

Plámás.Mayo are better than Galway .
Galway's kickouts are not ideal at the best of times and in Salthill they'll be gone with the wind .

Anyone playing Sigerson should be rested really although three of our best players at the weekend had played it midweek

Ideally yes. But I can't see Comer being rested. Himself and Sean Kelly both played Sigerson midweek last week having played league the previous Sunday and both played again last Sunday.

Comer at the moment is in flying form however if he doesn't slow down he'll be burnt out by May. The talk pre-league about Galway missing players seems to be parked now maybe a sudden realisation that the replacements that have come in are as good if not better than those players that are missing in action?

Comer will play against Mayo! If Galway win, I can see Galway using him more sparingly after that as the pressure to stay in the Division will be off. The fixtures so far have suited Galway and I think this fixture is coming at a good time for them.

I still think the likes of Ian Burke, Daly, Silke and Power are likely to get back on the team once they are available. Cummins possibly but he's been injured a lot over the past 12 months. FOC might struggle to get his place back ahead of Cooke or Flynn. Not sure he's really mobile enough in midfield for the modern game. Young Molloy's chances probably not helped by missing all the league due to Corofin's run. Farragher hard to tell.
