Ian Burke's 2019 form in a Galway jersey was terrible, if he plays at a 2018 level then he'll be a massive addition but he has it all to do to get back to that standard.
Farragher has done absolutely nothing yet at inter county and was piss poor against Mayo last July but in fairness he hasn't got too many opportunities outside of that either.

John Daly must be injured, big loss for Sunday as he's been outstanding so far this year.
Daly picked up a knock (ankle I think) against Donegal so out for this weekend it seems.  His direct replacement needs to start showing some form at IC level as his last outing in a Galway jersey was very poor indeed.

For sure Farragher was poor but he also needs to have a much better attitude - what he displayed last July below in Limerick is just not acceptable at this level.  His issue was probably with KW, but nonetheless he was like a spoilt brat!

I didn't see this particular incident myself during that game, only heard about it afterwards but that type of behaviour when substituted isn't really acceptable, it's not like he was getting wrongly subbed after having lit up the Mayo FB line either.
Absolutely. He was anonymous on the day so could have no complaints about being substituted.

Iím not too sure Ian Burke is even on the panel tbh.
We shall see.
On his 2019 form he would not get on the team - 2018 form he walks onto it.

Have to agree with AFA re John Concannon on the sideline - if ever there was a lad to have nowhere near the pitch...
He has a history of that kind of bullshit and Pj needs to sort him out imo.

Anyone know if the Mayo/Meath game will go ahead?
I need to make up my mind to travel or not and I'll need to set out soon if I want a stand seat.
Going ahead according to Meath Gaa twitter page anyway

Thats a very young Galway team, don't know what age Alan Greene is but off the rest of the outfield players only Tierney, Fitzgerald & Glynn are overage next year. 4 of last years U17's team are starting.
Is Cian Monaghan not overage next year also?
Youíre right though itís a very young team. I read somewhere Tierney is the only survivor from last years starting team

Yes you're right, got him and Ryan mixed up.
Weather conditions will probably make a balls of this game

I thought Liam Boyle was involved with the squad in the FBD but I could have that wrong.
Was a nice wing back for the minors a few years back though quite small and light physically.
Iím glad Steede is getting another start

The early in the week team announcements for the Galway Senior Footballers continue, the selection for Donegal is:

1   Connor Gleeson
2   Sean Kelly
3   Sean Mulkerrin
4   Johnny Heaney
5   Gary O'Donnell
6   John Daly
7   Cillian McDaid
8   Ronan Steede
9   Cein D'Arcy
10   Eamon Brannigan
11   Damien Comer
12   Michael Daly
13   Robert Finnerty
14   Shane Walsh
15   Liam Boyle

Two changes from Kerry starting lineup with Kelly and Boyle in for Duane and ” Laoi.
Thatís Michael Boyle rather than Liam I think?
Iím surprised heís back in tbh.

Very good post as usual AFA. Totally agree re PJ's attitude to the defeat and his bullishness in general.
The chance conversion rate has unfortunately carried on from the KW era as this killed us in so many games during his tenure.
What you say re Brannigans inconsistency in terms of shooting (he'll get 2-3 points one day and kick 5 wides the next) could equally apply to Michael Daly imo. He just kicks far too many wides from good scoring positions.
Hopefully Comer will get better as the league progresses as I know that the ankle is still troubling him somewhat currently.

If I was handed a 1pt defeat and a good performance prior to our game in Tralee I would have taken it no bother, however, in the context of last nights game we definitely left that one behind us and badly so at that.  To have created so many chances in the first half and taken so few was extremely disappointing with Shane and Damien being to the fore in that regard.  The longer the game progressed in the 2nd half we were definitely in the ascendency and making Kerry look quite rudderless at times.  Walsh was now in full flow and by a distance the outstanding player on view.  Once again, Cillian had another brain fart and we just did not manage that 10 min period when we were down to 14 very well at all, turned over too much ball in our own back line and were constantly outing ourselves under pressure. 
A very enjoyable game of football overall and a cracking atmosphere to boot  in Tralee - very wet drive home though!!! Onwards we go to Letterkenny.
How did you think Mulkerrin and Heaney did in the fb line?

Jaysus, Galway f**k it away down in Tralee. 3 points up. Game well into added time and Kerry finish with 1-1 to win by a point.

Sounded like some controversy over a black card at the end there and the officials not letting the player back on the field.
Yeah McDaid wasnít let on after his ten minutes were up as Gleeson was preparing to take a kick out.
Kerry kicked the winner from the next play.
Sounds like we were caught out trying to play keep ball at the back for the Kerry goal.
It seems we got a good performance though and this will be a good learning experience for that team.
On another note - that is Cillians third black card in 4 games this year - he really needs to sort that indiscipline out.

That was a joke of a red card in Castlebar.
High tackle - yellow all day long.

Ah jaysus, take off those anti dub glasses. Red card all day long. Mayo looking very limited up front regardless of red card
Anti-Dublin? Iím the least anti-Dublin person you could meet.
A huge admirer of that Dublin team.
But that to me is a high tackle which is a yellow card imo.
