Getting worried in the Kingdom?

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Kerry people are very proud of their tradition. One thing which they have never achieved is 5 in a row at Senior level. This Dublin team are getting closer to that target. Can Mayo come back again? Who is going to stop the Dubs winning the next 2 and prove without doubt they are the best team ever?.

Are you going to go private to have your nose removed from Dublin's a**e?

Great player and Kerry are putting together an impressive underage structure. I doubt though, Kerry are going to get a team good enough to win Sam in 2 years. Ulster football is a mess; and it is hard to see how Mayo can come again. I think; we are heading towards seeing a team win 5 in a row. That would not go down well in Kerry. There is still 2 years; but everybody should sit back and admire greatness.

It's aptly done by RTÉ to put the film the day after tomorrow on directly after the allireland final.

Football is dead .

Football is not dead; we are just watching the best team ever play the game. The fact it is not Kerry; does not mean it is a bad thing for the GAA . Dublin went 16 years without winning Sam, the dominance will stop at some stage. I would imagine training is going to be very intense over the winter; down in Kerry. A successful Dublin team is good for the GAA as it ensures the sport gets increased national coverage. If as I expect they win the 5; this will be marketing gold for the GAA.

Poor comments kingdomboy1, surprised at you, but it seems you've thrown in the towel, unlike Mayo.

Now you hit the nail.

When Kerry were dominating they were winning all-ireland finals by 17 points or so like in 1978 and 1979. Dublin are being brought to replays by Mayo and beating them by a point.

Football is dead because Kerry can't give the Dubs as good a game as Mayo.

You should have gone public or private a long time ago.

Ulsterman. You don't like the Dubs. We get it. They're a great team. No need to find some non-football reasons why they won today and we lost. We kicked too many wides. Dublin scored more than us. Fair play to them. Simple as.

Well said and well played greenandred.

I know it's no consolation but your county footballers are a team to be proud of. As a neutral i felt numb for ye.

Not because Dublin won but just to see ye win the big one. I used think Munster in the 2000s in ERC rugby were on an odyssey until 2006. It only looks like a trip to the local shop compared to yourselves. I hope ye all live to see the day Mayo finally do it, because it will be worth waiting for.

Congrats to Dublin, they took a lot of punches but kept plugging away today.

Dublin will not win 5 in a row, or even 4 in a row. Mayo were the better team in the first half, made a few errors in the second half which proved the difference. Very sorry for the Mayo players and manager at the end. Dublin are not the invincible team as the media would like us believe, and some pundits.

Yes Dublin looked very ordinary today.This Dublin team wins finals but doesn't seem to play at their best in them.
