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.

Was that a possibility at one stage?

Would have been a nice backup for Padraig Graven.

Well done Roscommon.

He was working in Maynooth but stayed loyal to Tipp

There was a bit of "media talk" to it definitely - don't know how serious it was.

Bizarre thing is Galway's shooting in the first half in terrible conditions was fantastic. I believe they scored 0-10 from 11 shots.

With a breeze and the sun on their backs in the second half they just lost all shape and collapsed.

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.
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”.

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

All of it. Piss poor 2nd half, fair play to roscommon they went for it and won. Pity about all the lying down they were at, they didn't need to be at that. Galway were a shambles and I think Kevin Walsh is finally being found out.

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.
And like with us he would appear to be overstaying his welcome. How they conspired to lose it from that HT position only they will know.

Congrats to Roscommon though, deserved that win in the end.

A bit strange that Conor Cox wasn't given much chance with Kerry. Barry John Keane was coming on in games for a few years, and Cox looks a much superior player. He was outstanding with UCC for 3 or 4 years.

I was thinking the same, his finishing and ball winning are as good as anything I've seen this year.

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.

Congratulations to Roscommon earned the win the hard way and once got their noses in front Galway weren't allowed back into. A very dominating 2nd half making them good value for the margin of victory. The win all the more impressive when you consider three key players Devaney Smith and Cregg was lost to injury.

As for Galway good first half but faded badly 2nd half, they have 3 weeks to pick up the pieces now and are still capable of reaching the last 8.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

You mean, they actually started doing some.
Previous management didn't really believe in it
