Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Well you'd have to think that there is pressure on the dublin lads to do the 5 as they are only human at the end of the day, add to that an extra 13 days to be thinking about it well that has to energy zapping."
Ah, we'll be fine. We'd be the happier I think to have the 13 days after the last day and that'll give a boost I'd say. Let's see what unfolds but it'll be another close one I'd imagine.
Can't wait.

I don't know about the energy levels but I'd think Dublin will have got a bounce from the way it finished up on 1st September. Get back , regroup and plan for the replay having been so close to loosing.
Kerry I think had it there for the taking and froze a bit in the last 5 minutes.
I'm being optimistic I know but I think we have a good chance the next day.

It'll be close alright and I can't see more than 3 between the sides. Is it Dublin Ohio you are from ? ;)

Outside of the competing counties there is actually zero interest in this game. I live in Tyrone and people are more concerned about the upcoming county quarter finals...in my home county of mayo people seem to have forgotten that the all Ireland is still being played for...my parents are from Galway and they are more concerned about who is going to be county managers next year and my wife is from Tipperary and they are still revelling in their hurling success..the country really couldn't care less

Ya we can't be giving ye 5 point leads again the next day we need to be taking the lead and putting this game to bed early and stop giving me heart attacks.

Easier said than done I suppose.

The Dubs will be pumped. Watching that game back they'll see that with 12m to go they swarmed all over Kerry with just 14 men creating 6 point scoring opportunities but only taking 1. That will give Dublin huge confidence.

Replying To TheFlaker:  "Really looking forward to this and will be interesting to see if Gavin makes changes to the squad. Charlie Redmond calling for Connolly to start is hilarious."
How is that hilarious? Its Diarmud Connolly.
Can anyone really criticize that decision if he is to start, forget about the last year he has been a great servant to Dublin and certainly has proven that he is a player for the big games, regardless of the lay off, he never stopped playing football and is back with the Dublin squad now. CON, Mannion, Scully etc all doing well at the moment too but you can put your house on it these fellas are watching and learning a thing or 2 from Dermo in training.

The idea that starting a fit Connolly is "hilarious".....is, in itself hilarious!

The way people get worked up about Connolly is hilarious. Serious fanboy stuff. As I have said a tonne of times, a superb talent and brilliant athlete. But has played very little top class football last couple of years. And 100 percent noses are out of joint in the panel. Saying otherwise is nonsense.

Connolly had an excellent cameo v Mayo in 17 but hasn't got a great record on the big days. If people are fair in the way the analyse other players on here they will look to his record in finals which is poor. Some people actually think he is the best player ever to play for Dublin. How can you even have a reasoned debate with these people?

Seen it myself , for posters who haven't theres a picture of this Sunday's Dublin team in the match program with Connolly selected at 7 not sure if it's for real but if it is It would mean Small is out through a hand injury I presume.

I'd like to thank you on behalf of everyone, for taking the time out to compile this pin point accurate survey of the nations feelings. The fact you were willing to travel the length and breadth of the country to gather this information is very impressive.

I feel bad now, for only talking to my wife and a few lads in the bar. Anyway if the rest of the country doesn't care, why should I?. Definitely not going to watch it.

Now where did I leave them sour grapes.

I can't name one person in my circle of friends in Mayo or those I know who follow sport that didnt watch the first game. And they like me will watch the replay.
