2018 SFC - Connacht Championship


#663

Championship will liven up at Super8 stage … we all know that by now. A group of say Dubs, Dun na nGall, Corcaigh and Mayo would be very interesting.


#664

There have been some decent games. Its just they’ve haven’t been on tv because RTE wants to show almost every hurling match.


#665

True enough but standard overall never mind defensive approach is awful to watch. By contrast outside of Clare v Lim today the hurling has been streets ahead.


#666

Defensive approach is still what hurts it most though. This is why I encourage people to watch ladies football. The balance is much better even if the players can’t kick the ball as far.


#667

Do the Americans like the ladies football? They do?


#668

Most Americans don’t even know what GAA that aren’t expats obviously.


#669

Thought the 2nd half was a decent affair Galway did well in fairness…dont get the dislike of Comer I think he’s a class act enjoy watching him was well watched today but still was effective at the end of the game


#670

Has more than a bit of the gurrier in him. His carry-on again Mayo was hilarious. But every team has one etc etc etc blah blah blah…


#671

I was there…delighted with the win. Some good forwards coming through.


#672

Comer is a great bit of stuff really. Came up trumps near the end. Gaillimh are a serious team and will be a major threat in Super8


#673

He has a lot of potential, but is probably being a bit overhyped at the moment. I know a lot of people talking him up for poty, but he wasn’t even close to all star standard today. He also gets away with a lot of fouling, but that is the case with a lot of forwards. Most full backs would have been booked much earlier for carrying out the same fouls he did.


#674

I see there’s a Claremorris man who scored a goal today.


#675

Which people are these ?


#676

Corner forward Walsh a bigger threat. In fairness to Comer the ball into him most of the game was woeful.


#677

It was a poor advertisement for Gaelic Football.


#678

Jesus. How much Soul-Glo does Tom Parsons have in his hair?


#679

As for the tie Tomas - it’s either on or off … not both.


#680

I think it’s 5/6 games you need to play to win Leinster with group stages, then quarters, then semi’s, then final. Had a quick look at Connacht, were Galway knocked out after 1 game and mayo beat only Leitrim to get to Connacht final v Rossies, or is their more to Connacht championship.


#681

No at under 20 level only provincial winners progress to all ireland semi finals.


#682

Only one Mayo player on the Connacht team of the Championship :open_mouth:
