Looking forward to Saturday now. Has there been any word on Eoin Kerin's injury? If it is indeed a hamstring tweak he ain't going to be playing any game on Saturday.
No new injuries from Saturday is the story at the minute anyway.

If Galway hang in there for 60 minutes and are then still capable of putting pressure on Cluxton for the last ten minutes they are in with a shout.

Still, itís better Dublin are getting each year so unlikely that Galway will be still in the match with 20 minutes left.

Galway are the only team going in with a loss in their last group game. Can they pick up momentum again? If they can, thet might hang on in there as highorlow said. If not it could end up being ugly.

The only certainty about next Saturday is that no one knows who will win. However we can be sure that Galway will come out like demons and will fight until the final whistle. My nightmare scenario is that Galway will be in a position the run down the clock in last five minutes with Dublin scrambling to get their hands on the ball.

Itís an All Ireland semi final and a two horse race - anything can happen.

Dublin will win its about the margin of victory that no one knows for certain. If it's close Dublin will be in a position the run down the clock in last five minutes with Galway scrambling to get their hands on the ball.

Dublin's 1992 team and todays team is like chalk and cheese. Dublin went from 1983 to 1995 before winning the All Ireland and the 95 team was probably the worst ever side to win the All Ireland in my lifetime.

Comparing Dublin 1992 and the monied, AIG and GAA sponsored Dublin 2018 might be the most embarrassing lack of perspective youíve displayed yet.

A Galway win would be like Cork v Kerry 83 or Down v Kerry 91 or Mayo v Kerry 96

In fairness Kerry 1996 was a very inexperienced team.

Why pick those 3. A galway win would be a big shock.

None of those are in any way comparable.
Dublin have won 5 AIs in 7 years.
None of those 3 Kerry teams were reigning AI champions - in fact two of them hadnít won Munster in 5 years before that.
