Eamon Dunphy

(Oldest Posts First)

The lack of respect this Dubs team is getting for what they have achieved is incredible.

From Ewan McKenna to Joe Molloy, Ger Gilroy to Eamon Dunphy...........I dunno why we bother

EAMON DUNPHY!!

I think its hillarous to be honest, i can see it now Eamon trying to get a selfie with the lads in Grogans and being told to kindly move away from the team.

Bad case of hurt pride on Dunphy's behalf here in my opinion.

I'd love you to reveal your personal experiences when you met them to formulate that opinion , so the stage is set please tell ?????
Some of us have met them on numerous ocassions and they are modest gentlemen.
O rourke , O shea and Brolly all stated as much on the Sunday game so much so that o rourke said they were bordering on being boring
But you obviously have different experiences so go on let all hear how they treated you when you met them ????

i think the general public dont know that much about this dublin team more than anything..obviously the likes of us do but outside the county more so

I gotta say the dubs do get a bit of bad press but wouldn't be listening to dunphy,I was hoping mayo win , the spirit that they keep showing has to be admired the never say die attitude the willingness to never give up on their dreams is something every person should look at it in their daily lives but leaving that aside I witnessed incredible sportsmanship at the final whistle by the dublin players towards the mayo lads and one of my favorite moments was the final whistle in the 2013 final I think it was when johnny cooper and cluxton didn't celebrate when the final whistle went the instead went straight over to mayo players and gave them hugs ,top guys them lads and great role models for young kids to look up to

Anyone else listen to off the ball this morning, Paul Kimmage gave Jim Gavin terrible abuse about his manner after games, in interviews and being magnanimous to Mayo. He also gave the team terrible stick for "cynical play", it was really vile and terrible stuff. Was furious after it, he has really lost credibility from me.

From a Mayo supporter that has attended 20 Mayo games this year I can only say to all Dublin supporters, players and management team extremely well done. You showed great character. Your players showed huge respect respect after the game and must be congratulated for this also. Enjoy the close season and celebrate like mad. We are really hurting now. Painful even but already we are looking at finishing the club scene and planning for 2018. To quote Vera Lynn 'we will meet again'.

Media are coming across as bit entitled with those type of complaints

Nice to read your generous good humoured and fair comments , i have had the privilege of seeing Mayo on tv during my summer holidays in
great spots like Ballina Castlebar & Westport,, At all times i was made welcome, treated fairly ,and indeed my views and opinions were well received,
I noticed the lovely cheerful family groups all togged out in their Mayo gear . real fans with no baggage or issues .. so to sum up , The wonderful
Mayo fans will get their All Ireland soon i hope .. and i might even order a nice large Mayo jersey for my future trips to a great football county,

Ps . Finishing second does not mean being second best ..your day will come ....

Cheers,

This is the same bunch who individually went up to Sean Cavanagh, shook his hand, hugged him and congratulated him on a great career after a semi final, yes? Would love to know what your definition of likeable is. Ryan McMenamin and Conor Gormley perhaps. Lovely chaps.

What a complete and utter total waste of time trying to defend the Dubs , in fairness we have not been alone there are many a decent Gael from the country who knows what's what , but myself and others have been relaying stories left right and centre about Jim and the lads , but there is a large element that just don't want to know , so ain't gonna bother I'm happy I follow a cracking bunch of lads lead by a serious coach that we should be proud of to hell with the begrudgers

What you want for a team is not to be liked, far from it, but to be feared.

Wouldn't waste any time and energy trying to convince the begrudgers to consider they might be wrong about Gavin or this great bunch of players.
The likes of Kimmage and Dunphy and plenty of others see an angle to make waves and get a reaction.
All great teams have had these individuals in the wings.That's where they belong.
