Enjoyed that. Well done the Rossies. Brings bring memories of what a competitive province is all about.
Ah Dinny, there are DVDs out there that commemorate that relatively brief period in history when Kildare were genuinely competitive in Leinster 😉

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

Well done Roscommon. A well deserved and famous Connacht final win. Will be remembered in Ross for many a day I would say

In fairness that a great kildare side. Brian Lacey, Karl O'Dwyer, Brian Murphy and Cathal Sheridan were great additions along with greatest manager of all time. If Declan Browne had gone would have won more Leinsters and possibly an All Ireland.

The 15+ minutes before half time, Galway were completely on top in terrible conditions. Winning everything in midfield. Deservedly go 5 points up at the break.

Sun comes out for the start of the second half. Galway have the breeze and he has them sitting back on their haunches waiting for Roscommon to do something and to be fair Roscommon said "feck this we might as well have a go anyway" and they duly got their goal. And Galway stay in that negative mindset until the last few minutes when they are forced to have a go themselves but it's too late by then.

Wille McCreery, Rainbow and Eddie McCormack were top players too.

Absolutely.  Time for Walsh to go, just too negative and a zero sub strategy. What transpired today in the 2nd half is not acceptable at IC level.  Absolutely disgusted with that “performance”.

Fair dues to the Rossies--the best in the west, without a doubt.
Neither Mayo nor Galway can have any complaints after today.

Managers tend to ship too much blame sometimes. Roscommon hugely upped it in the second half and Galway didn't want to know about it. To me you have to be asking questions of the players there on how they can be in so much control of the game and end up getting beaten all over the pitch.

Were Roscommon not defensively set up ?

I think sequence of events knocked Galway,   really if Galway had a couple of points first 10 mins of 2nd half instead of conceding 5 they prob would have kicked on.   Once Roscommon were close they were intense and defensive which just further added to Galway's wilt.  If Kevin Walsh has questions to answer it's about his ability to react to a situation rather than the way the team was set up.

Well done to Roscommon but I did not see anything particularly impressive bar huge intensity once they clawed their way back but that's not going to happen everyday.

Walsh has Galway playing in a way that has them looking like the lesser of their parts.
The 2nd half performance for Galway was not that dissimilar to their league game against Dublin where Galway went completely missing for the 2nd half.
Galway only scored 2 points in the 2nd half there as well.

It's a recurring theme under this management.

Wonder how much of the Galway “negativity”, and inability to push on is due to their coaching over the past few years.

Strange that Kevin Walsh took off Cooke as well and replaced him with a much smaller guy in Kelly. No surprise Roscommon got a bit of a hold around midfield towards the end of the game.

Watch the incident between himself and Daly , Cooke lost his bottle after the push about  , it was very evident on tv , he got completely frightened , backed out of tackling after , his arms were all floppy etc
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.
