PŠdraic Joyce sounds confident in his first interview as Galway senior manager.

Quote
"A successful year one would be to start off winning the FBD league and then go on and win the National league, and then the All-Ireland. Thatís our aim Ė thatís what we are aiming for straight away,"

"It might sound far-fetched to a lot of people. Iím not saying we are going to win the All-Ireland in two or three yearsí time, we are training for the 30th of August next year. Thatís when the final is on, thatís when we are training for. And if we donít do that, I would see it as disappointment."


The words of a VERY inexperienced manager! Silly comment which will haunt him.

Wasn't a spur of the moment comment from Joyce either as he's repeated a few times that Galway are training for next year's All Ireland final.

Walsh led Galway to All Ireland semi final so maybe he thinks he can go at least one better in his first year?

Hope they are training for the final and forget about the rest of us in the meantime so somebody can take them out! :D

Well why not?
Galway's 2019 form should be totally ignored. In reality, there's only two teams out there that are currently definitely better than them, Dublin and Kerry.
Yet they beat Kerry in 2018, and Kerry improved to draw with the Dubs in the AI final this year.
With everyone back fit and one or two new lads emerging, there's no reason why they shouldn't aim for the All Ireland final.

Yet, admitting ambition is bad thing in the GAA! You'll have plenty of keyboard warrior numpties who have already saved those comments, ready to dish them out each and every time Galway lose a match!

Why ignore 2019 form? Hard to know how Galway will fare under Joyce, they are too inconistent to say only two teams are better than them in my view.

Joyce should have been saying, they aim to regain  the Connacht title and get out of the Super 8. They didn't  even each the Super 8s this year, so why over look it..  The Bullish talk is soon forgotten after a few bad results.

Was he involved with Roscommon a few years ago?

beaten twice by Roscommon in finals in 2017 and 2019
so the evidence suggests otherwise

Roscommon beat Mayo this year as well. Didn't stop Mayo reaching an All-Ireland semi-final. Or Galway reaching a semi-final in 2018. Roscommon are a good side well capable of beating anyone on their day bar maybe Dublin.

None that I know of. Leading Galway to the 2013 All Ireland at U21 level is what he's known mostly for. Was favourite to become Galway Senior manager before P Joyce threw his hat into the ring and he then decided to then pull out of the running

Why is setting ambitious goals still seen as a no-no in the GAA? Have we not grown out of this "ara shure we'll turn up anyway" malarkey?
