#284

Really!


#285

Pete’s red eyes says it all :sob:


#286

No, only joking!


#287

I thought ye had gone all North Korea for a moment.


#288

To win just once!!!


#289

Weell done to Galway .Their bench had huge impact with Niall Burke and Jason Flynn getting 2 points each. Babs was a disgrace calling on McGrath to resign. Waterford weren’t that far away.Gleeson was non existent today


#290

Great song, but we hijacked that long ago.

Maroon and White Forever is their Saw Doctors tune. It’s about the 1998 footballers nut I’m sure they could have played the bit I posted above.


#291

The famous Galway song is The West’s Awake. The Mayo version is The West’s A Wake … :grin:


#292

You’ll hear the lyrics of said tune blared out the doors of Flannerys and the Big Tree over the next 2 weeks. Nauseating stuff. When it’s done, silence. Beautiful silence.


#293

That’s about the size of it Lyster says. Thank god I’ll either be in Croker or a noisy boozer in 2 weeks so I won’t have time sit through another rte presentation.


#294

Score prediction bang on!


#295

Steve Earl or, God forbid, Ed Sheeran?


#296

But Dublin have players like Joe canning , Conor Cooney, Niall Burke , Cathal mannion , daithi burke …

Ah wait now …


#297

It also means we aren’t as bad as people make us out as we did get beaten by the All Ireland champions

:joy::joy:


#298

Was totally neutral on this one, and I reckon the best team won, Galway just seemed to find their scores easier, in saying that if I were a Galway supporter I would have been a bit pissed off with the commentary, RTE seemed to really want a Waterford win, why , have no idea.
BTW a great spectacle. great game and skills in abundance, only negative was the Galway captain’s speech, I know Clucko cuts it short, but yer man was ready to go on forever,


#299

I thought it wasn’t the worst speech I’ve heard . Had he cut it down by 25 percent I’d have said it was one of the better ones of recent years


#300

Galway definitely the better team but the soft goal kept Waterford in it and but for a few wides in ye last 20 it might have been closer


#301

I think Waterford were a tad lucky not to be well beaten. Have to admire their doggedness and heart.

But two forwards scoring from play says everything. Maurice coming on early was a sign they were unlikely to win it.


#302

He deffo left nobody out, but it is not an issue, it is Galways night and well done to one and all.


#303

I thought the Niall Donohue touch was very nice and mentioning his parents and underage coaches etc was nice too- they don’t get mentioned too often these days. There are so many people involved in the backroom teams these days it just shows how professional it is when they mention everyone.
