Dublin Club Championship '19

(Oldest Posts First)

Great game yesterday evening , Crokes are very good fair play to Ballymun for hanging in there when really Crokes should of been out of sight , still raging Crokes lost that Leinster final they were terrible on the day but the ref was not kind to them whatsoever, they would of given Crokes and Corofin a great game imo they've blistering pace coming from everywhere ,McGowan number 3 wow what a game he had yesterday , probably the end of that great Ballymun team one Dublin club was not good enough for the talent they had , still a great side but their best players are hitting the 30's and have a lot of mileage.


Great to see The Roc back seems way slimmer than I remember but for a man out of the game for 4 years he did really well.

Aaron Byrne for Na Fianna is a very good player surprised he's not gotten the call up great at running with the ball skining defenders .

Agreed, on the above Andy McGowen was class, looks like he had the bit between his teeth and has been doing a lot off season. Mannion looked great. ROC looked a bit rusty and off the pace at times to me, basically a bit deconditioned on fitness, to be expected really, was skinned by Deano early doors once or twice. Played at 6 In Cian absence and dropped back 3 later on. You can tell he staill has it between the ears though, the skills and under the high ball, was left encouraged as fitness is something that can improve. Even doing a job at cover for 6 and 3 this year for Cian and 3 for the high high ball merchants when we need a physical presence, id give him a serious look for the senior panel.

Clarky was out watching Vinnies on Friday night, Dermo was supposed to be have been very good at 6.

Na Fianna looked class to me yesterday, Dessie looks like he has his fingerprints all over them yesterday.

Forgot how good The Roc is at playing full back got skint by Mchugh for Na Fianna's first Point you're thinking he's in trouble here pretty much doesn't give Mchugh another kick from then on. Horan for Crokes number 12 lovely footballer pat Burke some servant for Crokes he'd a great game , Cian O Conor very good wing back Crokes the team to beat imo.

He's quality, he has it all up stairs and still looks the archetype modern fullback. Cian O Sullivan got dusted down with a late inclusion for Ross McGowen. Pity as he had brilliant game against Ballymun.

Be a good game in the Autumn between Ballymun and Na Fianna going hammer and thongs to get out of the group. Like the look of James Doran, not sure is he still u 20 this year.
