I shouldn't have to explain anything to you but I'll educate you regardless. Sean Andy and Damo Comer not fit, very simple. Liam Silke the best man marking defender in Galway at the moment.

Time and time again Liam Silke been found wanting at intercounty level. I'd say he still has nightmares about James Carr.

Yeah you did have to explain because Silke never plays full back.

1: Power
2: Kyne
3: Mulkerrins
4: Silke
5: Kelly
6: J Daly
7: Molloy
8: O'Curraoin
9: Flynn
10: Heaney
11: Conroy
12: M Daly
13: Walsh
14: Comer
15: Burke"
Kyne gone, Mulkerrins has proven he isn't able for the position, u20 vs dublin last year. Liam silke is good enough for corner back on your team, why can't he move to full back? SMH

My personal opinion is Gary o Donnell will start full back v Monaghan and Eammonn Brannigan be wing back

John Daly could be a good fullback in the modern game. We have more options in the half back line. My first choice would be O Ceallaigh form, fitness and if the above is true (re not coming on in trial game) attitude permiting but if not Daly would be worth a look

Liam Silke should be captain and started at 6 and build the team around him. He's the best footballer in the county at the moment

Bit early to write of Mulkerrins on account of one bad game against a fella who was shooting the lights out last year. He may not make it but I wouldn't throw a young fella on the scrap heap that quick.

I'd love to try comer at centre field for a couple of weeks to try out.... there's to much Emphasis on comer at full forward.... I reckon he could cause serious damage at centre field.... he has a massive leap and won't be so tightly marked compared to high ball coming into him at full forward..... I'm not convinced "a bull in the China shop" is good enough at later end of championship..... once he is well marked he is out of the game.... Burke, Walsh and daly or Martin Farragher dicing around full forward would be far more dangerous for our opponents in my opinion....
