Fairly gutted after that game. As a son to two Waterford parents we’ve arrived home to a fairly flat household. Thank ■■■■ we didn’t have to travel down the M9 - that would be some manky journey now. Can’t complain about the result, Galway full value for their win, their forwards accuracy was sensational. Cooneys point in the first half was Dj Careyesque. I felt Waterford had to work very hard for their scores and even harder to win a free (but the ref wasn’t the losing of the game), Galway were on top in every line of the pitch. I think somebody mentioned it already, but the Moran miss around 45mins was a massive turning point - really took the momentum Waterford were building away and missed our chance to go 2 up. Thought Niall Burke was the winning of the game for Galway - huge when he came on. I was on the hill today and it was a completely different experience from a Dublin game to say the least - I walked on first to be welcomed with a chorus of “Hill 16 is Galway only” but I must say the Galway fans behaviour who were above us was disgusting. Bottles were being lobbed down on top of us all game, an elderly enough lady (probably in her 70s) was hit twice in front of me. Now I know our fans are no angels but I haven’t seen anything like that - I’m not talking one or two bottles, easily 20+ bottles launched over the course of the game if not more. There was almost a brawl between a man from Galway and a 16 year old teenager from Waterford. Worst thing about it, the stewards/gardaí did literally nothing about it.
Please god we fucking beat Mayo - can’t have both trophies going west of the Shannon - ■■■■ all that West is awake shite.
