Dublin's forwards 2017 - Going Well?

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


I want to see us rack up a massive score tonight with loads of goals. I'm worried about our lack of goalscoring chances let alone goals. Respect and understand that teams will inevitably play more defensive and make it harder for us to get through, but even so, this is a great chance to bury the poorest team in the division tonight in a ground they wouldn't be all that familiar wth, no disrespect, and we are playing a very strong team, So I want us to butcher them. Make their 70 minutes feel like torture from minute one, whatever system they play.

As damo said we were on a hiding to nothing tonight .. Win well which we did and people will say it was expected so no big deal and I'd agree .. Good performance but Roscommon didn't half help us they where pathetic defensively but in fairness credit where it's due cause they didn't throw in the towel and creates a lot more than Kerry Tyrone and Donegal have done so far

Great stuff and congratulations to all the team and management, the clock has gone forward and soon the smell of cut grass will fill your nostrils. The 3 in a row is homing into view. I think there will be an added fizz about us this summer, the panel has improved, they're all fighting for places. 5 leagues in a row would be a brilliant achievement but I only have one thing on my mind.

Couldn't believe it was it a mirage , had the drink taken hold , what was the catch bookies offering Dublin at even money minus 9 points , I can count on one hand the amount of Dublin games I've ever had a bet on , last night I lumped on gift horse if ever I saw one , only problem was going to be how they would set up after 5 minutes I was safe

So you think we would of ate Tyrone if they were all playing? Well done to the lads last night absolutely buzzing with the record , only human but I felt sorry for Roscommon and Mcstay last night they were shocking , but great to see Flynner n Berno do their thing. Jesus jim was ruthless on the Davy Byrne substitution , ok Smith was giving him a bit of a roasting but no messing with Jim.

Spot on Liam.

Was saying the same to myself leaving the Hill last night.

A great performance by him and he is back....!

Hopefully we get to see Cormac and Con soon enough also

I think the two C's will be held for the early rounds of the championship at this stage, the way the league has turned out, it throws up 'another' challenge for this crew. An away result against a team next Sunday who can also make the final being one, and then there's that five in a row.

I would have fancied myself for a couple of points as well on Saturday night.

Roscommon flooded players back, they had 14 behind the ball of most Dublin attacks, but then they didn't do anything at all.

The Kev Mac goal was embarrassing from their point of view , he went by about ten of them and not a hand laid on him.

It was yeah. I couldn't believe when he just strolled through.

Something wrong in the Roscommon camp going by that non performance.

Dublin weren't that good imo.
