Why not create a thread dublin v Kerry?"
In hindsight now this was a funny post!

After seeing Dublin hammering monaghan and Tyrone hammer armagh today, I think there is nothing between Dublin and Tyrone. It will be some semi-final....

Dublin by between 8 and 12 points better than Tyrone. 2 shocking games today. The lack of physicality is a joke. It's going non contact like soccer. Time to bring in the drag down tackle that works well in the compromise rules

Looking forward to the Tyrone Dublin Semi Final which should be a good game.

Tyrone should make a game of it at least, provided Colm Cavanagh is fit.

On another note, a lot of us on here have said that it is long past time that the Championship is fully restructured and today is further evidence of that.

I think it is very hard for teams coming out of the qualifiers,both Armagh andTyrone looked very flat and tired this evening

Feels like it might be a tight competitive game, looking forward to this.

The fact that Harte didn't start Mulgrew (a scoring forward) doesn't bode well for the Dublin game - shows a severe lack of ambition and let's remember we were only playing Armagh!

Tyrone will have to play a three man full-forward line and hit them with an early ball (we saw a few good examples of this today). We do have the half forwards/backs to support them in their scoring efforts.

If we go defensive against Dublin and only play one up front - it will be a turkey shoot!

Not saying that Tyrone will beat Dublin but they will give them a serious reality check to what they are used to. The result will depend on how they respond to that. The favourable odds at the bookies are all on Tyrone's side for sure.

What championship restructure would you do? Have a 4 team All Ireland. There's going to be hammerings, there just aren't that many top teams right now. No restructuring could change that.

I'd expect it to be keenly contested but the Dubs will pull away in the last 1/4 and win by 5 or 6 points.

Peter Harte won't; be let look so good when his runs are actually tracked.

Should be a great game , both teams evenly matched , can play attacking football or defensive , both teams extremely fit with intelligent management teams , also two sets of great fans so crokers roof will be lifted a few times

Agree - will be booking my ticket back to see this one - think Dubs could shade it but only just - it should be a great game.

when was the last time Limerick were in an All Ireland football semi final? Dubs and Tyrone will not care too much about today.

The confidence/arrogance of some of the Kerry lads recently is most unlike them. They've given up the cute hoorism altogether this year.
