yous were the better team today even with all the lads yous are missing. Think our lads still have their heads up their holes since the Dublin game. Been brutal last 2 games. Shane Walsh is a class act. What’s up with the lack of support though Bo? I’d say there were only 100-200 Galway supporters in inniskeen today. No noise when goal went in hardly. Thought Galway had fairly big support.
We’re in a dogfight with our 2 neighbors now. Be a bit of bite in Healy park in 2 weeks. Loser going down IMO

What do you make of Tuam?


The stadium or the Town? LOL

If you referring to Stadium, then I have very strong opinions on it. Amongst extremely deluded people within the North West of Galway, Tuam Stadium is the spiritual home of Galway football. Spiritual in the sense that it stopped hosting Championship matches after 2001 and the rich vein of history the ground has. (it once held an All-Ireland Semi-Final back in the 1940's etc. etc.)

However, the ground was never a fortress. Galway only managed to win half of their championship encounters in Tuam in the 80's and 90's. Even if the Leitrim team of the mid-90's were a better outfit than Galway were at the time, they still managed to win back-to-back Championship games there. Much was made of the fact that in 1997, Mayo won in Tuam for the first time in a generation. When you take into account that venues alternated between Castlebar, Tuam and Salthill in that time period in games between the two, and the fact that Mayo, arguably were the 3rd best team in Connacht between the 60's and late 80's, the stat wasn't at all that impressive. Certainly not in my eyes anyways. And their win there in 99 was exacerbated by the fact we were reigning All-Ireland champions at the time.

I've heard many a time from Mayo fans that they prefer Tuam, that it's a great venue etc. Why wouldn't they? It's a much shorter journey to Tuam than it is to Salthill! And some locals are never shy of sharing that opinion around. Yet the locals are fair more concerned with what their neighbours might say instead of what their fellow county supporter living West of Galway City has to contend with when travelling to Tuam. As long as the "Shams" have a few hundred yards to walk down the road and not have to worry about parking or traffic etc. then all is well. There is a huuuge sense of entitlement with a majority of football fans living in North Galway, a lot of stemming from past glories.

Not all of these locals are that deluded, there's a local group doing great work raising funds to refurbish the ground. They have reasonable expectations. The work they're doing is admirable, but they've given locals in the area wild notions of the old days coming back of Connacht Finals and Galway winning etc.

To quote Dara O'Briain, "nostalgia is just heroin for old people"

First twenty minutes we were brutal and we wasted some good chances but it was great to come back like we did and get the two points! Especially with so many out missing like you said.

Regarding the support, you must be thinking about the hurlers instead! The football support is a f**king travesty. We've never been amazing for our support imo. I can't remember a time, even in the good days of it being like what Mayo's has been for the last 8 years. It's a variety of things, a general apathic nature amongst Galway people, a divide between people based West in Connemara and the city to those based in the North West (the traditional strong hold of club football for generations) those who prefer Pearse Stadium to Tuam Stadium.

There is also a section of Galway people who abhor our playing style. By no means is it pretty or easy on the eye but FFS we were going out of the Championship year in year out losing games by a f**king point. And when we weren't, Mayo were dishing out hammerings with no remorse. Sadly there's people who prefer to see us play nice football no matter what the cost or outcome there is. As I said in my last post, entitlement extends to the choice of supporting Galway depending on how stylish their football is.

It's mad to think cork could be division 3 next year and the likes of Longford could be above them.

"the number of teams registered to play games in 2018 stood at 20,873, that’s 403 full teams more than in 2017 and 736 more than in 2016, an increase over 24 months of 3.6 per cent."

That's from the GAA report. Grass routes is at an all time high and this will keep growing year after year.

We were terrible yesterday Tipperary deserved the win. Our defence was non existent at some stages with Tipperary been able to run straight through us down the middle 

The other worrying feature from our games this year is we arent creating goal scoring chances like we did last year. Against the bigger teams will most likely need to score a goal or 2 to win games.

Still missing a number of our main players so no need to panic yet but things definitely need to improve from thst yesterday
