SmokieRoss as a Faithleachs man i think you should know if Diarmuid Murtagh played or not for his club yesterday. Kerry for example allow all 11 subs plus extended panelists play club football prior to inter County matches that way all players are match sharp

It's unbelievably quite with only few days to final. Listening to the football pod today and JOD saying we are going very well in few challenges we had over the past two weeks.. just hoping we get the win Sunday

Not sure what planet you are living on Kickitout if you think that Roscommon are favourites this Sunday. Several Galway punters have come on to the Roscommon forum recently and tried to tell us that they expect the Roscommon team to win. The only conclusion that I can think of for doing so, is to convince some Roscommon supporters to bet on Roscommon to win, and by doing so, improve the Galway odds.
Galway are in form at the moment and have recently beaten Mayo and also hammered Derry while Roscommon have beaten a Sligo team operating in division 4.
The bookies have mathematicians with PHD's calculating the odds for them, while also keeping an eye on recent betting patterns. When I checked on Boyle Sport about 15 minutes ago Galway were 1-2 on while Roscommon were 9-4.
So could some (emphasis) Galway supporters give up the "inferiority complex" for a while on the Rossie Forum.

Galway serious, serious all Ireland contenders beat mayo comprehensively we will turn up and try our best, hopefully it's enough to keep a serious Galway side close.

Yes and Roscommon are 9/4 against with the bookies.

JOD and Andrews like the majority of neutrals pundits has tipped Galway to win. Up to us performing well on the day and see where it takes us, who knows we might prove all these pundits wrong.

Hopefully we can keep it kicked out to ye! All this nonsense from both sides as to who the favourites are. It doesn't matter a damn to the players or management teams - don't people get that? What both see is a 50:50 game there to be won for whoever plans for, executes on the day and wants it most.

Deep down ye think ye have enough to beat us and we think we have enough to beat ye. It's so hard to call this one. If both teams play to their potential then don't be surprised if we see extra time. How the teams set up and who each team trys to take out of the game is huge. We will need to take Conroy out of the game definitely. We can't let him kick 4 or 5 points from midfield because if Conroy kicks 4/5 points that will be the winning of the game for Galway imo. Iooking forward to a good game and thankfully weather for weekend is promised good.

If Roscommon lose in a tight game after playing well most Rossies will be disappointed but will not be looking for a new management team. If Galway lose, even a tight game, most Galway supporters will be angry and want PJ gone. Anything short of victory will be viewed a disaster. Galway supporters, if they are being honest with themselves, do not think Galway should be losing to Ros and expect their team to be beating Roscommon more consistently. It is 50-50 and very hard to call but I'd expect very few Galway supporters genuinely think Roscommon are favourites.

Well it matters to Roscommon who are favourites.
Because they can't seem to win when they are favourites.

Exactly. Who can shadow box each other out of it the best seems to be the objective. I see we are favs with the bookies but don't really see how other than we have taken out a top side and ye haven't. It can't be the Salthill factor as that is negligible and we know the recent history. Now if it was in the Hyde our recent record there is much better and that of course could influence the odds which would make us shorter although cannot fathom how we are 1/2. At best I thought it may be 4/5 us 5/4 ye guys. Anyway does not matter a jot at the end of the day. Sunday may take on a life of its own and once we can perform to our capabilities it will take a lot to beat us.

PJ and team will have done some serious homework on Roscommon and they will have a plan in place to stop us scoring as freely as we did in the league final. I just hope AC and co have something up their own sleeves as I think if we are too predictable we will lose. Roscommon need to find away to nullify Walsh and Conroy without sacrificing too much in attack. I can see this being a cagier affair than the league. If Roscommon do adopt a slightly more defensive approach, then they really need to break at speed or they are on a hiding to nothing. No point playing defensive and then counter attack by lateral passing and handpassing the ball about twenty times before you get to the half way line. I fear if Roscommon don't change anything from the league final and Sligo games, Galway will get extra men back like against Mayo, frustrate us in attack and then break through our backline at will. AC has his work cut out.

Ye but the pair of flutes based it on home advantage which is the opposite of what has happened between these two the past few years.

Roscommon have a poor record in Hyde Park. We haven't won a senior Connacht title there for 21 years. We've won three Connacht titles on the road since. Don't think being away from home is any disadvantage to us at all next Sunday.
