Another win for Kildare and their usual qualifier momentum will be up and going. Limerick won't mind be written off, though. Peaking again when it matters.
@Ger But this is an issue that could affect football long after this championship thus it is hugely relevant still.
You'd have to think it'll be the quarter-finals everyone thought with Meath instead of Tyrone or KErry
Mayo v Sligo anyone? Mayo almost blew it but they needed a tight one before the All-Ireland quarter-final. Any views?
On a different track - but how many times did Pat Spillane mention "melt-down" last night? I counted @ least 3.
I thought Ciaran Whelan was going tto give him a badly needed clip. V hard to work with Spillane as he keeps cutting in. touches his arm and then he is off - the wife must not let him chat when he @ home!!!
Agree with Ray. It's as if to say, look Ciaran, i have a bag of all ireland medals and allstars, you stay quiet there, good lad....
When have Connacht finals given us any sort of a guide to the winners' All-Ireland prospects? Mayo got the job done on what was a difficult week.
They were very poor Terry, basics surprised me from Cillian O'Connor's frees, to Andy Moran's handling to Alan Dillon's passing. Serious amount to work on although Moran-O'Shea midfield will be one of the better around, it's what is on either side of it that should bother them when thinking All Irelands.
Aidan O'Shea looks a certain starter for the quarters providing the body is right.
Standard in Connacht is not helping Mayo though. Galway's decline is phenomenal, who's at fault Ray?
There is so much hypocrisy here about Seanie Johnston. Never has one transfer elicited so much investigation at every level. He obviously started it by applying for the transfer. If that's the start. He didn't drag it out forever. It should have been done in April but ineptitude at the very least in Croke Park led to the hurling, which meant he didn't play against Offaly. Can't wait for the similar forensic investigations to other transfers, not to mention into payments to managers, use of loopholes to get out of suspensions, changing of a lad's townland to confirm his club eligibility etc. Give. Me. A. Break.
@ Brendan. I was having a bottle of apples on the couch and I almost went into - you've guess it - MELTDOWN. - listening to him.
The disputed point - the press said it was over, the radio and TV people questioned it. There is war!
@Daragh Only other transfer that can be compared to it was Thomas Walsh and it wasn't short of publicity either
As I said before, Thomas Walsh's transfer hit the news pages.
@John exactly, and there is no other transfer manufactured in modern times that can be equated to it.
