Replying To Belclare:  "Heaney has been poor this season but has been s strong performer under Walsh tenure.
Your basing Farragher on club form.. a massive difference..
You wouldn't know!.."
I think yourself and brisbane are being very harsh on farragher. He's a class footballer. He hasn't been given a run of games like others. He didn't even travel to London, got a few minutes against Sligo and Roscommon and was then parachuted in to start against mayo. That was a very big ask.

That was his first real opportunity. If he was good enough to start against mayo in that type of pressure game then it begs the question why he wasn't given a few starts against the likes of London, Sligo or indeed Roscommon. That's what alot of supporters were calling for all year as it would have given him a chance of playing with the first 15. He never got that chance and wasn't introduced in the earlier games or given enough game time.

I think thats what Tommy K is saying and its a very valid point. The vast majority of Galway supporters would like to see him get a few games. We can decide then if he's good enough or not.

Let's be fair to farragher. It was a baptism of fire in limerick where he was expected to produce the goods against 3 hardened All Star defenders. He didn't score but he didn't do too badly either for a man introduced for the first start in county football. Anyone who writes the man off after one chance in that type of game is being very unfair. There's no harm giving the guy a few chances. We can judge him then.

Ó Laoi didn't need a load of chances...you have to take your opportunities at this level.

O laoi was given a number of starts in the league and by the end it he had played himself into the first 15. Farragher was not given that chance mainly due to his club commitments.

There's a big difference getting a start against Cavan and roscommon in the league and gradually taking your opportunity as was the case for O Loai. Whereas farragher was thrown in for his first start against a mayo full back line consisting of 3 All Star defenders in a do or die championship encounter. There's no comparison.

All im hearing is excuses for a man who was playing terrible and then decided to have a argument with KW when he was taken off,

Absolutely Reversepass1 but the likes of Belclare and Brisbane obviously think that one game in a negative system that KW has used is fine to write someone off as "not good enough" but other "county standard" players completely off form and yet still being picked continuously e.g. Heaney is "good enough". We all saw the results of what being "good enough" has brought this year which is the team going backwards at a rate of knots and currently outside the top 10 according to Belclare himself - go figure that one out!

The lack of game time didn't seem to bother Ian Burke when he got his chance in 2017.

One excuse for Farragher, a different one for everyone else?

I think it is unfair and stupid to judge Farragher on the volume of gametime he has had for Galway so far. If Farragher had as many outings as Johnny Heaney has had for Galway in the past few seasons, we'd be in a much better position to evaluate what he can do at that level. We Just haven't seen enough of him for Galway to date. Midfield was a struggle for Galway v Mayo and Roscommon this season, and the games didn't present ideal conditions for new forwards to impress or impact at all.

Ya great lads but a bit like their 96/97 team. Not just good enough, 1 more forward would have done the trick in the last few years I reckon.

So Mayo took a worse beating than us in the semi after a powerful first half. We are both scratching our heads at the moment.

Difference is that both their own supporters and the media will still wax lyrical about them (heroes, warriors etc) whereas our lads and management get slaughtered both inside and outside the county. Go figure.
