Replying To Galway9801:  "So so bad in the 2nd half"
3 points from placed balls late in second half by Galway. They were just out of it.

Replying To Tirchonaill1:  "That ruckus at half time must have shook the Galway men up badly, desperate 2nd half from them, first 2nd half score in the 62nd min, not good enough to win any game, Mayo looking good, can't believe how bad Galway are."
Mayo have form for tunnel brawls and it seems to work for them. Galway had such a bad second half. Congrats to Mayo. Could this be their year?

Replying To Trump2020:  "Walsh is looking great for Galway. Comer needs to be careful. The 2nd half should be brutal."
brutal is correct

Make no mistake this result is because Galway stopped playing in the second half not due to the talent of Mayo.

Two poor teams. Sean Kelly going off damaged Galway specially when Oshea went full forward. Reminded me of the monaghan game Galway collapsed be it fitness or mentally. Joyce made some awful subs

Commiserations to Galway. I was worried at halftime that Mayo were about to have a real off-day with Galway in a such strong position. Once Mayo upped the tempo Galway started to struggle. Another great performance by Mattie Ruane and once Galway's midfield were curbed as an outlet Gleeson was stumped. Terrific work rate to put on the squeeze and much better forward play than the first half, including the disallowed goal which I thought was fair enough otherwise half of Con O'Callaghan's goals should be chalked off for engaging the back as the ball is coming in. Thankfully it wasn't needed. Mayo definitely needed a test against a Div 1 side and hopefully they won't make such a sluggish start in the semi-final, especially at the back which really upped their performance after halftime and gave Galway's forwards very little space. The ultimate test awaits (sorry Kildare, as well as Meath did I just can't see it)!

Congratulations Mayo. Great 2nd half. I guess I'll be pulling for Mayo in Football and Waterford in the Hurling.

Now you know what to do to the Dubs at half time next week!

Do you think they didn't know that the game wasn't over? Why do you think they stopped playing? You're right about the talent though.... you seem to know a lot:)

Ah another Donegal man who talks nonsense. Sure you could say the first half was about Mayo being bad. Childish comments. The amount of lads sickened on here because Mayo won't go away is hilarious. Going to be in the top 4 for a few years yet even if they lose to Dublin. Up to other teams to step up.

Well, that was a game of two halves, as the auld cliché goes.

Paul Conroy and Walsh ripped us a new one in the first period and other than from the kickouts we were in trouble in most sectors of the pitch. JH still has some work to do on our defensive six which was way too open at times.

We seriously upped the intensity of our tackling and support running in the second half and honestly could have won by a few more points (what was Ryan O'Donoghue's goal disallowed for?). JH deserves some credit as he switched around the matchups and Galway's danger men Conroy, Walsh and Comer couldn't get the same level of possession close to the Mayo goal.

My worry is that such a Jekyll and hide performance the next day will see the Dubs put twenty points on us by half time. But to be fair we're in bonus territory for this year, given the losses in personnel the goal should always have been to get out of division two and Connacht and both have been achieved.

Hopefully P O'Hora is ok as he was having a monster second half. Anyone know what the Galway player was sent off for? Tv coverage didn't address it.

Kildare you mean. Mayo tried that against the Dubs before and it didn't work but sure no harm in trying it again.

Well done to our neighbours, Galway couldn't live with tactical tweaks and intensity in the second half. The early pen set the tone and it was only one team in it from there.

Where to now for Galway and P Joyce? When dust settles and look at our last two years overall it has been a poor return.

Pulling for Waterford in the hurling? Well that's gratitude for you. We welcome you into Leinster to play your hurling, and here's you cheering on a Munster team, a province that won't have you.

I'm presuming it was for striking, given that it was a straight red?

We were not welcome into Leinster, we were begrudgingly allowed into the Leinster championship since it had become a one man show and a total bore for everyone except KK! We're a Connacht county that will always support the underdog - the underdogs left this year are Dublin and Waterford.

What is up with Donegal users on Hoganstand at the moment? sticking out like sore thumbs and really letting themselves down. Now tbf its probably a select few that are constantly at it.

Unable to give other teams praise,

Big themselves up mightily as if they have been any ways relevant come the business end of the championship since 2014,

Seriously begrudge all the culchie teams.

That was a legitimate goal in my eyes. He didn't push him, he stood his ground essentially and checked him with his hip. It was naive by the defender who was caught on the wrong side and good play by the forward.
