Galway V Mayo

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


This is shocking stuff from Galway. As bad as I've ever seen. Several players not up to inter county standard. Management standing there like headless chickens, not having a clue what to do. What did Jim McGuinness do for them?
Defence all over the place, full back way too slow, centre half non existant. Awful!!!

Galway a disgrace. Forget about injuries as both teams have them, it's 15 v 15. S.A in huge trouble. Joyce saying in his comments before game he got Jim McG down to increase mental Etc. Where is it. Get the priorities right ie tell lads you can't give ball straight back to goalie. Mayo looks the more hungry, I wonder was Jim in castlebar also. Where are the u21 lads who got to AI u21 final a couple of years ago. Don't tell me Galway are concentrating on championship cause as PJ said this could be last game for some time. Half time it's damage limitation and I hope I'm wrong but don't see that going well for Galway.

Replying To giveitlong:  "Yes, both managers have their eye on November. It will be so strange if its tight at the finish and no supporters."
Welp, dont have to worry about a tight finish anyway

Sadly there are a few players on that panel who need to be dropped. Just don't have it and have been there long enough at this stage.

The only thing that might be relevant is fitness levels
If rumours are true mayo have huge work put in in last 2 months
And that would explain some of the collapse

Very very worrying. We seem to be miles off. Hope it's a smoke screen.

There have been few days where I have felt utterly embarrassed and this is one. We look like a junior team at best. Mayo are running through us for fun. We are physically way off, tactically shocking. A goalkeeper that is a calamity. We are way off Mayo and four weeks wont fix it. I have been up looking at the training and it is lack lustre. Mayo are a professional outfit way ahead of us. We conceded 32 points!! Sorry lads but that is a disgrace

I hope Galway have a better Goalkeeper who can actually kick the ball out and not do a "Rene Higutia" running out of his Goals flapping about like a headless chicken!

That's very true the only two that stood up.
We're in big trouble. We don't seem to have a defensive or kickout strategy at all.
Mayo backs strolling up the pitch not tracked. Ball delivered in, backs behind the man and then a foul when they're taken on.
We're goosed

Great win for mayo, first year on panel for following players who all played today - Mullen, McBrien, mcLoughlin, Moran, conroy, Walsh, O'hora, O'Donoghue and Flynn. Great to get the win with such a young panel.

Genuinely looks like "Catch and Kick" is as far as our tactical plan goes. 15 of 30 of our own kickouts won. Thats Junior C level stuff.

Some lads way way off the pace, not gonna attack individuals but fairly clear who some of them were today.

Will be lucky to beat Sligo without a radical change of basically everything.

Galway will improve for the Dublin game if it goes ahead next week, but look, congrats to Mayo today

Yup and everyone calling for o donnell to hang up his boots yet our last championship match where we also played mayo o'Donnell was the only one to take the fight to them

Mgmt entirely to blame for this when majority of your players go out to play without the right mindset and look beaten in the first few mins the mgmt are 100% to blame. Not having played a game in months and against Mayo it shouldnt have taken much to motivate these lads.

Feel sorry for Conroy and O Donnell having to play without any help from those around them

Stay safe everyone. We will get through this with or without football

A note to management & players who had been successfully building momentum, getting supporters excited, having kids in schools and clubs talking about Galway football again - don't put on our maroon and white and go out unfit, incapable of battling, no hunger or fight or pride and no plan. Abject performance on the pitch and on the sideline - get some pride in this jersey or stay at home
