Add to the fact that the Dubs will probably have their next 3 games at home in Croker

Roscommon won because they were the hungrier outfit and when the game was in the melting pot, their appetite was in stark contrast to the galway one.

Alas, I fear hunger and honest application may only get you so far, and there is a strong possibility that the Rossie will not win another game, in fact, I dare say, many will view them as a weak link in the Super 8s and those coming through the qualifier route will be hoping they are in the Rossie group.
I'd say Roscommon would delight in being the underdogs

Must be up there with one of Roscommon's finest ever Connacht title wins having beaten both Galway and Mayo two established and top 5 teams in their own back yards.

Nobody should be surprised by this Roscommon success at senior level though,  2007-2016 Roscommon reached 9 Connacht under 21 finals winning 4 (should have been 6 wins as the 2013,2016 titles was left behind them) and these Roscommon lads have beaten the current Mayo and Galway county players numerous times at minor and under 21 between 2006-16 so was only natural that Roscommon would eventually beat both to win a senior Connacht title. Next step should be keeping a good manager in Anthony Cunningham on as long as possible. 

Some moaning mary's might not agree but i thought the field celebrations was great and produced fabulous scenes and pictures from it. Whatever about Leinster,Munster the Connacht provincial championship is alive and well. Well done to Roscommon turned last year defeat in Hyde park (12 scores to 16) totally on its head.
2018 final was level on 65 mins. In fact Roscommon led for most of that game

there's been a lot of lazy analysis of games recently

I would agree with you on Walsh. I have never thought he has been a particularly great manager and think Galway should probably change him.

I wouldn't agree on the ref. I thought he wasn't good at all (on both sides) and it could have spilled over with his lack of control.
he must hate the sight of Roscommon

4 points down at half time but it’s not about this match

“When the college in Birr started to slip, we should have asked why.

We last appeared in a Leinster minor final in 2003 and under-21 in 2007/8. Because clubs like Birr and Killoughey and St Rynagh’s were doing so well, it masked underlying problems. It is easy to be wise in hindsight but Birr Community School began to fade in around the time Brother Denis [Minehane] * retired.

“There was no succession planning. And that is my fault and the fault of others in south Offaly clubs that we almost left it to Brother Denis and other teachers in Birr Community School to do what we should have been done. They were the providers of the majority of the players on teams. When that started to slip, so did Offaly hurling.”
Where was the funding to develop hurling in the midlands counties?
Being spent in Dublin

As much as you have a point but it has to be said the Dubs went to Croke Park with a plan. The Offaly's, Antrims of the world didn't so Croke Park didn't throw money at a non existent process.
Antrim go with a plan and get funding, that's how it works.
the problem is Offaly have put together about 5 plans for the county

Well done to the Ros! Well deserved winners!

As a matter of interest who is the s&c coach for the Ros? They seemed to have come on a long way in this area.
You mean, they actually started doing some.
Previous management didn't really believe in it

Kevin Walsh won't survive that. Even if Galway get a couple wins in the qualifiers. I think we've seen enough now.

Michael Foley described them well just there "a team trapped inside their own heads".


Like us Sligo bucks said at the time he should never have got this job. He's wasting that talented group. The defending for the goal was farcical.
Same defending last year for Roscommon's first goal

"Dublin's success - a lot of it is based on voluntary effort and a games programme. Yeah, we do have the [paid] coaches going into schools and that is a benefit, but that project is 50 per cent funded by the clubs. Schools are the predominant area in which the paid coaches work and they work not alone in hurling and football but in camogie and ladies football as well."

What's this "games programme" he mentions, can we do that in Mayo?

This Horan la is an embarrassment to the GAA but the real deal for the Dubs.
Clearly the Dubs have stumbled onto the magic formula that no other county can replicate

Also, great win for Dublin hurlers
Pity they keep losing lads to the professional footballers

When they were blabbering on about Cluxton I thought they actually forgot about the Meath match but they went back to it later

They did, they forgot all about it. Des had to be reminded. They were too busy sucking Dublin's balls like the week before as well. Speaking of balls, why do none of the panellists have the balls to call out the Dublin doping offences?
when did this happen?
