Our clubs would stand up for their senior players if problems and poor treatment is being reported back. Clubs are the greatest thing about the GAA , we always back our own

PJs belief in his ability as a manager is ridiculous. A legend running a team into the ground. As a player he'd have been the man to lead the players vote against a manager of his standards

I see Johnny Duane has announced his retirement. Great servant. Is this the start of it?

I expect so. There could be others following. Fair play to Duane for his 10 years of service to Galway, a huge commitment. He had been getting more game time and is only just turned 30 I think. Pity to see him go.

Cian O'Neill joins Padraic Joyce's Galway set-up as coach https://the42.ie/5578085

Discuss!

Not sure what aspect he has been brought in for. Apart from his coaching background he is a professional in the sports science area and we are certainly lacking in that department so it can only help.

No proposal B. Let's move on from that.

That means Connacht championship in the summer and I presume New York in our first round on May Bank Holiday??

Good to see Mountbellew Moylough win the county final, against familiar foes Corofin. They ended a 35 year wait for the county crown. And won by 6 points. Ex county footballer Val Daly was the manager. Just watched it on TG4 and it was a bit confusing to see both teams in a part yellow jersey.

We play Mayo in Connacht Quarter Final 2022.

I have to say I'm disgusted we are missing out on our turn to go to New York. Also feel the County Board dropped the ball here. They should have demanded we go to New York. Every other county makes a fortune out there.

And it's a great trip for team and supporters.

Your dead right because mayo will give us a right pasting and we would hardly any other excuse for a right good drink! Championship over before it has started.

Wouldn't surprise me one bit if we beat them. Saying that we could then lose to Rossies!

I don't rate Mayo as world beaters at all. I think they did really well last year and got more out of themselves than the sum of their parts and with a bit more composure could have won Sam. They are a credit to themselves but also demonstrated what a bit of diligence, organising and application can achieve.

And I think Galway were the exact opposite. All the raw ingredients. It is not rocket science to fix it. Can PJ fix it?? Signs are he cannot but I'm hoping that Cian O'Neill will bring that organisation etc that we are missing.

Before I get the head taken off me I accept I am an eternal optimist when it comes to Galway football and I did say "hoping"!

We won't be pasting anyone. It's a draw neither county would have wanted. A long trek through the back door awaits the losers of this game.

Either way I can't see the back door system been implemented. I will be a straight forward knockout again. Not until Covid is mastered.

I'd think it could be a short championship season , Mayo match in mid April a fair chance that Galway be finished by mid May thar would be giving them 1 win in qualifiers , I think they should aim to play club championship in July as it is there only be 4 teams left in championship by last week in June anyway ,, I'd say proposal B would definitely have suited Galway even though they voted against it ,,,,

For now, it's part of the plan. No point really speculating any further, as we don't know what the situation will be in 6 months' time.
On the football, there's always hope, but as things currently stand I can't see us beating Mayo.

I see a certain Mayo GAA officer complaining about Dublin and calls for the introduction of VAR. The chap has a short memory, if VAR was used for the Galway Mayo game O'Hora would have walked in July.

Embarrassing statement from the secretary who is hoping to get the chairman's job. He states "will we ever learn in this county?" And then goes on a rant about VAR, Mayo fans and Dublin arrogance…the only arrogance is from him.
