Replying To galwayford:  "I hope Kerry don't bring their fouling, cynical, game to the final. And hope Maurice Deegan is not the Ref."

Replying To Joxer:  "Kerry minors were going for 6 in a row, yes 6 in a row, today. It's sport and anything can happen."
This is the second year they were beaten at under 17 level - maybe U 18 suited them better.

Replying To BlueBeret:  "Only a foolish person would compare winning 5 or 6 Minor titles in a row to Senior titles. Minor teams must change on an ongoing basis due to the small rule pertaining to players being under a given age on a given date. I would very much doubt if any Minor team has ever even won 2 titles in a row. Lots of counties and clubs have won multiple titles in a row but the teams are always changing."
Laois won 2 in a row 1996-97 that I remember. Derry did too i think in the 1980s?

Replying To Kerrymanlegend:  "Haha the bitterness is strong on this one. Galway lol. You just can't hack it and accept that we are the kings of football. Stop being jealous. P Keane outstanding job. Go on Galway lol."
I have saved this wonderful post and will take delight when the final result appears. Can not wait for all the excuses to sunndely appear

Very hard to make a case for Kerry to win this one. I think they have had a great season and have some of the best young footballers in the country but Dublin are a step too far at the moment. Kerry have the makings of a great side but I feel its going to be another couple of years before they can beat Dublin. If Kerry can get their defence sorted out, they will be a serious force in the future.

Probably not much I can add to what has already been said about Dublin. I cant think of any weaknesses. Would it be worth Kerry picking Tommy Walsh and start firing high balls into him and Clifford?

If Tyrone had 1 or 2 more scoring forwards they would have beaten Kerry handily enough. Dublin will win by as much as they want, at least 10/15 pts.

The handicap for the Mayo game yesterday was Dublin -5 and I was very confident Dubs would beat that. I see its up at Dublin-5 for the Final too. I fully expect the boys in blue to win by more than 5 again.

Maurice won't ref the final, a different man will get the final.

All the pressure will be on the Dubs, they are unbackable favourites here but I don't think it will overly effect them they are an incredible team that don't do nerves.

Kerry are miles ahead of where they should be with a new manager and so many players in their formative years. Our full back line is a huge worry and there is a danger this could be a rout but I hope we will make a game of it. Down the stretch you'd expect Dublin will be just too good though.

This is the opponent Dublin have been hoping for from the start. Winning 5 in a row and beating Kerry in the final. Become the greatest team ever. Regards of what county you support they are a joy to watch.

Unfortunately this will be like last year's final and another comfortable all Ireland final win for Dublin,it will be try to be hyped up to get massive interest in it but it's just not the same anymore and people.know it,Dublin are a monster and no one can compete against their amazing squad of players and their far superior resources

Kerry have the forward line to beat Dublin, but not the defence to contain them. Also Dublin in essence play a blanket defence when needed, they are the ultimate machine that adapt to any situation, this is not down to money like some believe, this is down to the unbelievable manager that Jim Gavin is.
Obviously a perfectionist he has turned this team into 26 lads on Match day that all read off the same script...team players, always the right decision. They rarely make the crazy long kick unless it's ON...
Jim Gavin is the man here and people don't give him the credit he deserves

Dublin are undoubtedly a great team but I don't see them as unbeatable. An aging Mayo team, playing its seventh game in eight weeks, outplayed a rested Dubs team for nearly forty minutes before their legs gave out and then got over-run. A young Kerry team should have no difficulty in keeping pace with the Dubs for seventy five or eighty minutes and should be able to pressurise them like Mayo did in the first half. However they and their manager must believe in themselves and not be afraid of Dublin.

3 weeks to set a trap and some trap it needs to be. T Walsh looks like he has to play a big part an is Jack Barry due a recall 4 Fenton? Oh how sweet it could be...remember 55 and 75!!

Replying To avonali:  "No. Wrong. All the advantages are not with Dublin. There was a time when Kerry loved coming to Ctoke Park. It was your stomping ground."
You're delusional. All and Every advantage is with Dublin. Home crowd, dedicated sections now it would appear, total and utter familiarity with the pitch and Croke Park itself, no need to travel, stay in non familiar locations etc. Won't get into the funding discussion as it's as some people can't understand certain things. And when Kerry played in Croke Park they had to earn their way to play there as opposed to it being the home ground.

I'm just glad I finally got to wear the 5-in-a-row t-shirt I bought out of a van in Killorglin back in August 1982.

Little did I know that I'd get to wear it again less than a year later when the Kerry junior team also completed a 5-in-a-row.

We're getting tired of them down here.....

Replying To BeJasus:  "Make no mistake, this is the final opponent that Dublin wanted.
Winning the 5 in a row against the age-old enemy Kerry and taking their throne as the greatest team of All-time.

Kerry by 4."
Already took that..and here anyway why was Kerry better than the great Wexford team that completed it too?

The script says the Dublin team will achieve immortality if they win 5 in a row. Well this young Kerry team are also striving for immortality because if they stop the Dubs winning 5 they will be lauded and celebrated within their own county every bit as much if not more than the great Kerry 4 in a row team.
