Maybe Malachy will tínker a bit with the forward line. If Kieran Hughes is fit, possibly start him up front alongside McCarthy. Vinny Corey should have more time on his hands to get involved with the general patterns of the game, now that he doesn't have to embrace Donaghy all the time. Colin Walshe should be  sharper than he was against Kerry.

For sure any Galway team that takes the field will play to win, nevertheless there are questions about how their team will play in the unique championship circumstances they find themselves in, there are no precedents in gaelic football at this level for their interesting predicament. They have already qualified, the do or die championship approach is not an absolute. The semi final is less that 7 days away, what effect will resting a handful of first team regulars have?  Monaghan's task is plain, there is a game out there to be won and they will be all out to win it.

If it came down to monaghan a point behind and are awarded a penalty at the death, what does Conor do, go for the safe point or the goal?

There must be more than one mick from Mayo.

And Kerry not progressing would be the bonus benefit.

Definitely good entertainment, a good filler while waiting for  the last round of games.

Should other Galway players feel a need not to risk their tight hamstrings, they will be looked upon with upmost sympathy and respect.

Welcome to New York  - 2014 , Gerard Depardieu plays the part of Strauss Khan  the IMF chief and possible French presidential candidate infamously accused of sexual assault against a hotel maid. It's a savage, no holds barred depiction of the predator. Depardieu is superb and fat, really fat. The film is more of a docudrama, very well edited. Naturally the film was the subject of the French snub and generally treated as toxic.

Sounds decent. Where’d you watch it?
I downloaded the torrent.

Going by the impartial assessment of the Northern Sound crew it sounds like Kildare have massed their ranks with (genetically modified) huge feckers, tried to muscle the Monaghan boys about, are playing with 2 sweepers and lumping the ball in high. However Monaghan's midgets are well coached and crafty.
Monaghan a goal ahead and now firmly at the vanguard of the Ulster challenge in this championship.

Three 1/4 games on today at 3pm.
 Kildare (almost with home advantage) play Monaghan in Mullingar, nevertheless it will take a very strong Kildare team to put a stop to Banty on his road to redemption.

Is there only radio coverage?

other games
Kerry v Roscommon, Gaelic Grounds, 3pm
Derry v Meath, Athletic Grounds, 3pm

enjoy the new pup. I have three boxers best breed about
A good breed, but the best breed?  You've never had a Border Collie then? Einstein in the body of Usain Bolt.

I'd a dog once that had the physique of Stephen Nolan and the intellect of Sammy Wilson.
Whilst I am not exaggerating in the least, I suspect you are, or else the adage applies, 'it's not the dog,  its the stupid owner' :)

There was nothing alleged about it, Kelly kicked Gary O'Donnell and deserved his red.
Some striking action with the foot, red card for sure, the galway player made a meal out of it and ref ignored both the high tackle and the late tackle on Kelly. As with a host of other incidents in GAA, the refs ignore the agressive targetting but focus on the last offence, the retaliation. The refs are not only endorsing the agressive goading but also rewarding it. I prefer the rugby attitude of dealing with both and the rugby ref taking a more serious stance re the the aggressor than the retaliation.

I thought it a good article and reflected my exact thoughts about the Flynn sending off and also about the red card for Fintan Kelly in Monaghan's league game. At the time I thought it was farcical that the high tackle combined with a late deliberate hit on Kelly was ignored but focus went on Kelly's (alleged) retaliation which was enhanced by some Galway player in apparent agony on the turf.
In both those examples the refs had seen everything and chose their actions with deliberation.  There's a blatant dysfunction with refereeing of such incidents and Galway are exploiting it to some effect.
