No but I was thinking that the likes of Kieran Fitzgerald would certainly have been better than SAOC the last day. I think SAOC is still living off that decent U21 AI campaign he had 3 years ago. I don't think I have seen him play a good game for Galway yet - he has either been very poor or average at best. In saying that I don't think I have seen Liam Silke or Cillian McDaid play a decent senior game for Galway either despite many posters here continuously picking them in their teams.

Next, Dylan Mchugh has a serious engine to keep up with them pacey wing forwards of Dublin. In the engine room Maher deserves another shot as I believe he can go toe to toe with Fenton on his day. Shane on the wing can man mark Murchan as he is a serious threat. Finally Leonard full forward can have the same impact Rock has with Dublin inside."
Molloy had the worst year this year and is so overrated, he most definitely is not a man marker not even on the bench last Sunday! They need to move Liam Silke as a man marker only problem is there are 2 many dubs to Mark

Definitely wouldn't be giving Matthew Tierney a run if at all possible. The lad had a great game in u20 against Kerry but was carrying an injury. He should be given time to recover

Ya feel sorry for the minors. Personally it's worse for u20 lads though and they in a final. Can't understand logic of letting senior inter country go ahead and not u20. Pull the lot or none?

Galway u20's are the victims of the bad PR that the CLG has got in the last few weeks. Anyway, let's take it in our stride, relax for the next few months, and start afresh in the new year.

Maher toe to toe with Fenton? That's some strong stuff you're smoking my man!

Kyne got far too much stick on here, he along with Daly was one of the 2 defenders who played well against Mayo last summer. I think he has something to offer going next year if he returns to the panel.

It'd be nice to see a gameplan and leadership on the sidelines for this one, lord knows it'll be needed.

Where to start on this (not trying to knock you - but don't agree with several aspects of it)... Kieran Molloy had a bad season end of. How you can say he had arguably his best year ever is just beyond me. He also is absolutely not a man marker. His best games for Corofin were driving forward from wingback - he is not someone who marks his wing forward tightly. Comer is injured he won't be playing. Maher is nowhere near county standard from what I have seen of him (about 5 club games including a game against my own club). Ditto Jason Leonard - he has been a good club player for Corofin but had a terrible season this year and is not county standard. I like Dylan McHugh (haven't watched him closely enough to properly judge him though) but don't think he is on the panel? Finally, you want our best and most dangerous player Shane Walsh on the wing so he can man mark the opposition wing back??? Seriously man.

Declan Kyne? He is no where near good enough
