FT Kerry 1-16 Monaghan 2-11. Good enjoyable game fantastic effort by Monaghan but the best side won.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Best team won; they talking about Keane been next Kerry manager but he didnt take of the corner bck on a yellow card on a difficult player when well in control; nearly cost them the game! I wouldnt see him as nxt kerry manager!

Hard luck to Monaghan died with their boots on.

Great spirited effort by Banty's boys, played the game to the last ounce of their energy and dragged a lost game down to the wire. Banty in the post match interview looked like was just after playing every one of those 60+ minutes.

The only teams to beat Roscommon this year are the AI finalists.

Who picks the man of the match in these games?
Aidan Halloween got it & while he played well the best player on the pitch by a country mile was Galway Number 7 Cathal Sweeney
Yes Cathal Sweeney was the clear stand out player.

Grandson of Mayo legend John Morley.

Finding a free taker and cutting down on the greediness are the 2 biggest aspects Galway need to work on if their to beat Kerry; Kerry are a more physical team than Meath and Galway won't be cutting them open so often as they did to Meath.

In fairness to Monahan he was excellent from frees prior to the semi-final, hopefully last Saturday was an aberration.

Galway have a chance but Kerry look a bit more "physically developed" which can make quite a difference at that age. Thought Galway struggled a bit physically with Meath early on but got to grips with them eventually. But they had to make a few substitutions to do so.

Galway were the better of the two and we played both. Leave the poor mouth at the door and beat the hoors.

Based on the two semi final performances Galway have every chance of winning. Monaghan pushing Kerry all the way wasn't a once off as Cork also pushed them all the way. If Galway happen to be better than Monaghan,Cork then we are in for a very competitive AI final
