19 wides for Galway in a tight game. Limerick won't get away with that against Kilkenny

Yeah, a Munster ref alright! 19 wides and a few hugely questionable decisions against us didn't help Galway's cause. Still, a great performance from a Galway team widely acknowledged as being in transition against Limerick's greatest team ever. All is not lost for the year. Minor all ireland football final to look forward to on Friday evening, then back to Croker for the football v Derry on Saturday. We'll be broke but it's mighty! Gaillimh Abú.

Oh, and Jack Grealish? Maybe the footballers should stick him in goals against Derry!

And Limerick had 15 wides. There are lies, damned lies, and statistics. While there were definitely a few shots taken that should never have been, Limerick didn't win because Galway hit too many wides.

Leaving the questionable decisions to one side. I thought Galway rushed/panicked too much when there was 5 minutes added time still to play. A bit of composure, could easily have taken the game to extra-time, if not won it. That's when you need the experienced, cool heads.

This was a very enjoyable game, great entertainment. However the contrast in The Sunday Game panel on several incidents shows the massive hypocrisy and double standards in the coverage between last week and this week. There were 2 dangerous incidents today, a shoulder lunge to a players head and a deliberate stamp. Joanne Cantwell and the panel didn't mention the shoulder and quickly skirted over the stamp. Armagh would be rightly miffed at the difference.

Limerick really weren't much better today than the side that fell over the line against Clare in the Munster final and we seen what happened to Clare yesterday.

Limerick carry this form into this final it's hard to see them winning it but Limerick are capable of playing to the best of their ability in the final.

The stamp didn't even get a mention from the commentators during the game. I suppose by their standards when the Limerick boys can walk on water the Galway lad should have felt blessed for being treaded on thusly.

Totally agree with you (probably a first). How he got the main gig on RTE is beyond me.
Luckily for me, living in England, I watched the game on Sky Sports, who I find produce a far better coverage than RTE.

Fair point. They were carried over the line by their coolness and experience, they won't enjoy that advantage over the Cats. They'll also need to be a more threatening on front of goals. One shot on target today, which was comfortably dealt with, won't be enough against KK.

I'll be supporting them the next day out. I wonder who Bill Murray will be behind now that his beloved Galway are out?

Armagh 'miffed'? Ha-ha!

Hard luck Galway. Players and management will know how much of missed opportunity that was once its watched back.

Thoroughly enjoyed that..think limerick got the benefit of a few dodgy calls at the end..don't think the stamp was anything and he did apologize..I'm also pretty sure there would have been a reaction from Galway players if they thought it deliberate..if we going down this rabbit hole have a look at Flynn challange to head in first half,or mannion following through with knee on Hayes after a first half challange..think Galway will be disappointed with some of their shooting,a bit like Clare yesterday..thought some of limerick boys looked a bit rusty with touch and passes slightly off..limerick showed the experience gained in last 4/5 years and never panicked..one worry might be no shot at keeper and no goal chance..huge final in 2 weeks and it could go either way..

It's why we're so lucky to have Sky Sports for All Ireland semi finals and finals. It's great coverage and you know the anaylsis will be accurate and fair on all counties. They did mention the potential stamp on Sky and commented Galway were hard by although the Limerick guy apologised straight after it, also as Limerick managed to get a side line puck and point from it.

I still thought Galway were very vocal to the officials throughout, trying to put pressure on them, that can sometimes go against a team when big decisions are being made.

In saying that as the ref didn't deal with the potential stamp the CCCC will probably look at it but I doubt it was serious enough to miss an All Ireland Final.

Limerick odds on with bookies 1/2. Kilkenny 2/1. I think could go either way. Galway put in a great performance and could have taken it. They'll be a force next year and definitely took battle to Limerick. Replay of 2019… I think Limerick want this, and potentially great all Ireland. Meanwhile, in Rebel country, Kingston resigned and new manager to be announced soon!

Coverage of minor final was brilliant, love all the different cameras, especially from behind the goal for the puckouts. They how and when to use.
