Senior Club Football Championship 2020

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Corofin - Salthill were lucky to make it through the group

Moycullen - Not as clear cut as the first Game but James are inconsistent and Moycullen should have too much for them

MM - this is difficult, as MM have been unspectacular while Killaninn have shown they are capable of a top performance. This is a 50/50 but I will go with MM

Tuam - not as 50/50, Barna could cause an upset. Tuam have had two good wins on the bounce so it will be interesting.

Really only two of the QFs are contests

Barna don't have any county panelist currently. I think young Kennedy was on an FBD panel a few years back.

Yeah a few FBD players. Keane the goalkeeper, Kennedy, Jason Lyons. A few others too.

Yes, none of them were anywhere near good enough for IC level, if we are being honest.

Replying To northbouind:  "As regards Corofin s dominance it most certainly is not good for club development. Dress it up anyway you wish.

If MB were without Denver and a midfielder whoever's he is for the group matches that would explain there heavy beatings. Particularly Denver as he apparently is there leader by all accounts and having him back for the playoffs that should see them home and hosed."
It's up to to other Clubs to reach Corofins Bar.
Annaghdown, M/M & Tuam nearly did it over the past 4/5 years.
You can't ask for more development than that. Only a matter of time when they are beaten, I feel this is the year, Tuam to win it out :)

Corofin to win with plenty to spare, Mountbellew to win a tight contest, Moycullen will have too much for James' and i think Barna will carry on their great form and cause an upset!

James' have more than a chance. Whatever about Salthill's chances James' have the calmest player in the county in Paul Conroy. I agree they are inconsistent but have been impressive in disposing of Milltown and Oughterard. Moycullen will be happy with any winning margin in that one.

Fair enough, conroy has been in great form all year. best club player this year also, bt still feel like Moycullen will win by more than 6/7 points.

How have you come to see him as the best club player of the year, dessie Connelly, Micheal Lundy, Rob finnerty to name but a few all performing way better. Tom Curran barna going way better than Conroy.
Moycullen will hammer them too much quality on all lines

Should have added in my opinion of course to avoid people getting triggered, I know if I could pick one player this year to play for my own club I would have conroy. Think james are the weakest team left in the competition. Have already said they will be well beaten.

Hearing that Spiddal have put an appeal in from the Salthill match on the basis the ref had the score wrong. I believ Spiddal were told they were a point down when in fact game was level & as a result instead of tapping over free to go a point ahead they went for goal as a draw was no good. Could this delay championship? Cant see Spiddal being successful & they should look in mirror were 6 points up against 14 men of salthill & could not get the win. They only scored one point in 2nd half. Sour grapes in my opinion.

Spiddal have a strong case here, if shoe was on other foot with Salthill there would be uproar...

I played against a Paddy Naughton also a good few years back who was in and around Galway panel.

Whether they were 6 points or 20 points up at any stage is irrelevant. That's equivalent to the argument that Louth could have no complaints about the Joe Sheridan 'goal', as they should have put Meath away earlier. That's all part of the flow of a game, and Salthill were very good in the second half.
There's no excuse for a team being told the incorrect score, when it impacts what they need to do at the end of the game. An Spidéal had an easy free at the end, but thought they had to go for goal as they needed the win, after being told they were a point down.
Interestingly, Galway Bay's commentary had it as a draw at the time.
Scorekeeping is a basic fundamental of the game. It's even more critical in situations like this.

What are Spiddal hoping for? Replay the game? Will only delay championship cant see board allowing this. Also if Spiddal did win it would be Michaels who would have gotten sucked into relegation battle. They would have stopped training as their year is over cant see it happening. Was there a discrepancy over the score?

Don't think it should be a case of, oh its an inconvenience or it delays the year. If they were told that they were a point down instead of drawing the game and it could potentially mean they go back down to Intermediate, it is certainly worth a look and you can't say oh they should have won blah blah nonsense.

Having the score right is hugely important & surely the refs most important job I accept that. What Im saying is do I think this complaint will go anywhere NO. Also raises Q why was it not challenged by mentors to linesmen when the scoreboard was incorrect? Does anyone know when case will be heard surely needs be ASAP? Also Co board will quash it & will depend how far spiddal want to go with it. Again they should man up concentrate on relegation. 2 games if they are good enough they will get out of it regardeless of this salthill games & what ifs of score.
