The danger signs for Galway football have been clear for several years since their last All-Ireland win -- nearly a decade ago -- and in the first half of their game against Dublin in Pearse Stadium yesterday they were even clearer.
A tired looking collection of players, woeful tactical options, and anaemic forwards seemed part of a pattern all too familiar to their own fans in recent years with the odd honourable exception.
A Dublin team with an experienced attack and a naive defence were merely toying with the Galway team and the half-time score of 2-7 to 0-6 was a fair indication of the pathetic performance from the home team -- despite the presence of a good home following.
