Corofin V Dr Crokes

Replying To Kingdomson:  "I see only one winner - Corofin with a bit to spare. Physically stronger and more powerful , they'll shut down the Crokes handy enough."
I couldn't believe this game was at evens beforehand. Given the form lines, and remembering what Corofin did last year against a Nemo side that comfortably beat the same Crokes team on there way to the final. We knew then Corofin were a special side after last year. Corofin got caught cold against Crokes in a semi-final 3 years ago and this result was making of them really and they weren't going to get caught again. I feared Cokes would get hammering and so it came to pass and the only surprise for this observer was the bookies odds.

Replying To WanPintWin:  "I believe some of the best players on the current team are from Belclare, but Corofin would still give them a serious contest in the county final. :)"
Gary Sice and Jason Leonard teach across the road (Belclare national school) from where I'm perched right now ( Canavans) every kid in that school want to wear the jersey and the work been done is unreal by many.

Very impressive
They've show more guts in the final 3rd than Galway team itself , especially when it comes to overloading the attack.

I don't suppose any of the Corofin lads will play against Tyrone on Sunday...too soon?

I read somewhere there's a big wedding in Corofin this weekend so don't know what affect that will have but wouldn't be surprised if Liam Silke & Ian Burke made themselves available.

The bench has a few lads on it that won't be near the panel in the next few months too.

Corofin wow what an outfit.
Crokes hand out hidings like that like confetti in Kerry and Munster but to be on the receiving end like that was some going by Corofin.
They are a joy to behold and to be a footballer involved in that club must be a pure joy.

Funny to see now what lads go into the Galway setup and play that miserable style.

It's a catch 22 situation. ... is it justified to drop lads who have helped get Galway to 1 win away from getting to another League Final or do you start the Corofin lads who have been playing football the whole year round? Personally I'd keep faith with the lads who have done so well for Galway thus far and maybe have the Corofin lads as impact subs?

All counties play miserable nonsense, including Kerry when it suits them. Pat Spillane goes on about the great Kerry style as if it were still being played by Kerry. No club or county team play attacking football, with both feet and hand, like Corofin. Dublin and Kerry supporters like to think they do but that's just self-delusion. Dublin are the nearest in fairness to the Corofin style but their footballing ability is not innate like Corofin's.

I actually think that having the likes of Silke, Mulloy an possibly Wall in the Galway team will give KW more confidence to leave more upfront something like a Comer, Burke and another (Cummins, Ó Laoi) with Shane Walsh dropping between them.

Galway have been far less defensive minded this year (taking into account have to setup that way for games in gale-force winds!)

You have some nerve talking about guts in the final third being from Mayo, who are simply atrocious when it comes to scoring.

4 years and counting

I guess I agree with you. Impact subs would be best.

No, it's because he never misses a chance to have a dig at Galway. He's like Ballboy minus the comedy.

Mayo and Galway have both been as bad as each other over the years in Croke Park, just leave it at that.

Other than Dublin everyone has been bad in Croke Park for quite a few years now. lol.

I hope this trend changes soon.
