AI SHC Final 2017, Galway v Waterford, Croke Park, Sunday September 3rd, 3.30pm


#1

In 1 word, call it…

Galway


#2

Draw.


#3

Galway’s to lose in my view .


#4

I hope Waterford. But Galway look very good.


#5

Would the absence of 1 or maybe 2 Gleesons make any difference?


#6

Wait and see if anything happens with refs report first . Galway is my late fathers county, and their success in the late 80s were too late for him. His own siblings and their kids and subsequent families means there was a few cuzzins who played for the county so ordinarily I would root for them . Having worked in Waterford for 14/15 years though and got to know one or two who were involved in the management team over the years , would love to see them do it . Will do some serious digging to get a ticket . The cuzzins tell me they were hoping Cork to win yesterday. You’d have to fancy Galway , but Waterford , subject to missing players , could do it - I think they need a lot to go well for them though .


#7

And the award for understanding the term “1 word” goes to _tl well done. :+1:


#8

Ehh not the thread title , just the first post .

But in the interests of brevity -and to avoid all doubt , Galway .

There you go


#9

Waterford.
I’m down here now on holidays and everyone is convinced they are going to win this. They are also convinced that Austin Gleeson will play - word has come down from someone “high up” in Croker that no way will he be allowed miss this one.


#10

Waterford


#11

The same word that had Derek McGrath managing Dublin next year?

It’s a knife in the heart of the disciplinary process if he isn’t at least made to account for his actions.


#12

Of course, we’ll be seen as whingers if we give out about the double standards…

We all know hurling and football are viewed differently in how foul play is adjudged and rewarded!


#13

Derek McGrath doing the sky walk in Croker???


#14

But it’s not even that. De Burca did basically the same thing. His own teammate.

It’s a joke if it’s just left go.


#15

Cork.


#16

I’m interested to hear where Waterford can beat Galway. And what areas of the field will deliver victory


#17

You know how it is, everyone is hungover and talking shiite. Nothing new there!


#18

It’s a pity someone wouldn’t put an arm around Gleeson and tell him to stop all this hard man sh1t and concentrate on his hurling. A really fine player but still playing with the petulance of youth. He needs to grow up now and stop acting the shaper. His hurling does the talking - he doesn’t need the macho BS …


#19

It’s not a joke considering they let Tuohy off! The GAA are consistently inconsistent in how they apply their rules. Farcical doesn’t come close to describing it!


#20

Adrian Tuohy ??
