Kerry V Dublin

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Replying To Uimhir.a.3.:  "Drive for 5 not going according to plan, league defeats, media circus over Jayo & Connolly, indiscipline & suspensions, the Donegal motion about Dublin having two home games in the Super 8's which will undoubtedly pass unless Croke Park pull the motion not allowed on technicality card, the fact that most counties in the GAA will want them beaten, some things that Gavin would not want to have happened. Allied to this is that Kerry are going the right direction, picking really skillful players & good direct forward play, I think they are the ones who will put a halt to the Dubs. Gavin White & David Shaw were worth watching today, beautifully skilled players."
You're probably not far of the mark. In a word people, who will win the AI as things stand right now, and we'll check the temperature again when the league is over.

I'm afraid that ship has well and truly sailed. The only team that will beat the Dubs is Kerry and that may not be this year.

Replying To Dubh_linn:  "I'm talking about 2018. 2016 was 11 point beating. 2018 was 12 point beating and you did say " we were never beat like that.
Them two were decent enough but it's funny how your memory works when it suits you not to have it.
Ah well, you should probably stay quiet for a while now."
Again we were talking about the championship not the league again keep up.

Slept it off chief. It'll take a few hours though by the sound of it.

Of course, All Ireland champions for four in a row, great team some very skilled players. But five is the Holy Grail, similarly to the famous Offaly/Kerry game, an awful lot of similarities, it's human nature that neutrals will want Dublin stopped, little signs like indiscipline & begining to take the bait from sledging, heavy legs begining to show, fast direct & young Kerry lads, the hungry edge going, you know a little nudge in the back by a corner forward sneaking in for a wining goal where the ref turns a blind eye to let the underdog win as before is not beyond the beyonds again.

Im afraid the drive for 5 is very much on unless Galway and Tyrone show up and make them earn their wins.
If dublin sleep-walk their way to another semi final they will have enough energy preserved to get it over the line .

Colossal advantages westkerry, if ourselves or anyother team manage to beat the dubs this year it would be like the cow that killed the hare, a pure fluke.

What the GAA have done to the 31 counties outside the pale is the equivalent of asking someone to climb Everest with their hands tied behind their backs.

I see the GAA chickened out yet again in relation to violence on and off the pitch, 2 players 1 from each side suspended for 1 game and both teams fined is bulls##t, last year when the same crap happened in the Galway v Mayo league match everybody me included called for all players involved to be match suspended and 2 points deducted for both teams, in that scenario Mayo would have been relegated instead of Donegal, but the GAA done the usual bury their heads in the sand, who is paying the fines both teams got Kerry/ Dublin, more than likely the clubs, that isn't punishing those players or teams involved, points deduction was a better solution, that would make players think ahead in future
