Great win for Galway considering the amount of first choice players they were without.

FT Galway 1-15 Kerry 1-10.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

That was a mighty win and an unexpected one given the players we were missing. I know Kerry had their own absences.

Ducky not sure yet if any of the missing players will be available for the final.

Great win. There was only one team in it in the second half.

Would the conditioning of the Kerry side be in question there? Seemed like the longer the game went on that Galway had the legs on them. Some very tired lazy tackling from their backs in particular.

Weird to think that their dominance at minor hasn't translated into U-20 at all.

Galway deserving winners on the day, but not an unexpected win at all given that Kerry were missing even more likely starters than Galway, and the majority were only ruled out the day before the game which would have been hugely disruptive. 

Galway were solid in defence, had impressive free-taking accuracy and finished much stronger - possibly Kerry didn't have the options to bring on that they would have expected to have.  Thought Kerry gave the ball away too easily with a lot of the possession they won and didn't get a good enough supply to their danger men.

Both Dublin and Galway seemed to have the legs on Tyrone and Kerry today.

Would fancy Dublin to win it, they seemed to be the most physical and athletic of all the teams involved today.

Ciaran Archer carrying on the ability he showed at minor level. Dubs kicked some lovely points towards the end to pull away. Tyrone didnít have the same threat in their forward line

Will be Tyrone/Kerry final. We should beat Galway handy enough. Tyrone will be tough in final. Young Cananavan looks a handy footballer.
This hasnít aged too well

Delighted with that win and the overall display in general.  Real pity both teams were a good bit under strength on the day.  Hopefully a few of the absentees will be available for the final next weekend, if it goes ahead of course.

Were they? Not sure of numbers exactly and obviosuly losing Walsh for the second half was big, but if you were to pick the 5 top Galway lads this time last week, 4 of them were missing today through covid/injury.

Given all that, the lads can be very proud of themselves. Thought the 2 midfielders stood out. Essential that the Tierney injury at the end doesn't keep him out of next week

2002   Galway 0Ė15   Dublin 0-7
2017   Dublin 2-13   Galway 2-7


Dublin are a new phenomena to this competition. Since the money got involved they have been quite successful!

Ok, What should I say. Dublin had no real history of success in this competition in the 20th Century.  But the volunteer movement of the 21st Century coupled with a wave of a once in a generation group of players seen them excel in this competition from nowhere and claim a significant number of Leinster and All Ireland titles.

(despite yourself, you will still end up reading this)
