How hard can it be for the GAA to make sure that there is no colour clash between the referee and a team.

The way corofin played football today was a disgrace!!negative football!!fair play to them though great achievement to be back in a all Ireland final but kicking the ball back to the goalie numerous times and people say they play total football???not alone the Dublin footballers but I think the opinions around the country saying corofin and Dublin are the only ones playing total football are very naive and clueless in the way they watch football

Football is a tactical game, it has become somewhat boring to watch. Corofin first minutes of play were magic from then on it was about controlling the game. I look forward to PJ galway attacking football but if Galway dont play some keep ball then disaster awaits. Well done Corofin super team and club.

Well done Corofin. Hope they land the 3 in a row. Super team.

Some of the foot passing was a joy to watch. The angles of the pass, quick ball, runs into space.... all simple in theory but incredible difficult to implement.

Congrats Corofin

Not that difficult to implement either. Its just that other teams focussing too much on gym and running..not enough on football. Result is that too many lads cant execute a basic 30 or 40 yard pass . All the corofin players are very comfortable foot passers. Nemo were embarrassingly poor in that aspect.

Ah jog on Mick. Why wouldn't they play it back to Power. He then starts the attack. Nemo were shocking. Offered nothing. Corofin controlled the whole game and as they were all year sloppy at times. But the results are there and the final is the next step

Well done to Corofin, what a team and what a backroom. Also a word has to go to the ref who had a very good game and let them get on with it, in contrast to the second game. The bookies have made Corofin 9/2 odds on to make it 3 in a row but Kilcoo will be a big test I feel. They have great pace throughout the team and will go for it from the start. Don't see them targeting Gary Sice which has backfired for all who have tried it. Crooker should suit them too. All that said Corifin should have enough and do save their best for the Dublin venue. It should be a might game..

Nemo were very shot shy too, which was a surprise considering the way Cork sides at all levels performed in 2019. Kilcoo are not shy, and are not shot shy, which will present a sharp contrast for Corofin in the final. Mickey Moran is one of those managers that I just love to see getting beat. Tommy Carr was another. Maybe it's just me!

Excellent, controlled display of all types of football. Possession play when needed then struck like a viper when the opportunities arose. There won't be a better point scored this year than Molloy's fisted effort after 3 long kick passes near the end of the first half. With their current dominance of club football it's difficult to fathom how our county team has been so poor these last few years especially when you consider that the 2 teams that came nearest to stopping the 3 in a row are both Galway clubs. It's more evidence against the outgoing county manager's style of play. The future of Galway could be bright if PJ gets the balance right.

A bus could have drove down the footpath on the inside there was that much room. It wasn't causing any obstruction. The wardens were out in force as soon as the delays were cleared. A lot of money left in pubs and restaurants before and after. Clare county council let themselves down by going crazy with the ticket printer

So if I, and every Tom, Dick, and Harry, decide to paint the car in team colours, and throw on a few flags, we should be allowed to park wherever we like on match day? At the end of the day, it was a 40 euro ticker for a blatant parking offense, he was lucky he wasn't towed. Take your lumps lad, and consider it 40 euros to show how much you love your club. Small price to pay and don't be a silly bugger.

As to the match; another great day out and another great might missed in Canavans of Belclare. Killcoo will delight at being underdogs going into the final and people writing them off in the same way they were going into the semis. This has 'waiting in the long grass' writ large all over it. Heads down and on to the final lads!

Killcoo were written off everywhere but the Boden lads knew there was a task at hand and these Down men know how to play ball. The Corofin lads will be under no illusion that there is one hell of a game ahead of them. Wide open pitch with a small crowd it will take a good 10 mins to get the legs and lungs working up to speed. Hopefully Corofin will get going quickly with experience.

Hoping for another win this weekend for Galway Football after the Seniors & Oughterards great results. Beware of Kilcoo though. Mickey Moran will have these lads primed & wide open Croker will suit them. Could be an upset

The very best of luck to Corofin. A superb team, brilliant to watch and hoping their best is yet to come in this current campaign. Kilcoo are fully expecting to pull off the ambush - this could be some battle.
Delighted for Oughterard and Corofin, showing how Galway football can be played, the rest of the county can be very proud of ye. Do the business lads.
