So because you don't agree to a posters point of view , you tell him to pipe down !! , and childishly state if it wasn't for a Kerryman blah blah blah , honestly who are you to tell people to pipe down , get over yourself. As for the Kerryman your lot didn't want him.

I think Galway and Tyrone could be well in the hunt in the coming years too. Both may need new management teams though, I know Tyrone people are divided on that issue.

Mayo may not go away either they got some very promising young players in to the team this year but they need to find more because they have some big names to replace in the near future.

Hopefully we are entering a prolonged period where there are several realistic contenders each year.

We finished the game with a reserve team. Kerry aren't great. O Brien kept them in it with no disrespect meant.

If we Had our first 4 choice defenders, our 2 midfielders, our CHF and a fully fit Mc Brearty we would have won easily.

Saying that Moran would have played some impact for Kerry.

So mcbrearty, murphy and McHugh are yere reserve team at the end, only for them ye would have lost the game by a fair amount. We on the other hand were missing our first choice midfielders from the start, moran and barry, our main back, crowly and our most experienced and decorated back, young who is only coming back after a long term injury not to mention a former footballer of the year, james o Donoghue, think yere selfs lucky, oh and another ps. we have a fair more talent coming down the line for next year when no doubt we will be bumping heads.

Plenty more coming in Donegal too I can tell you. Maybe next time when not down to the bare bones we can let Michael Murphy loose more in an attacking sense. So won't be thanking ourselves lucky but thanks for the advice.

Enright did not do a bad job on murphy, when he went off he had a bit more freedom, but that will be banked by Kerry and like in 2014 I guarantee you one thing if ye do put murphy on a more "loose" licence, like the job ye did on Clifford and o shea the last day he wont have as much of an influence, if you know what I mean, oh and unless the Aussies take anymore of our superstars ye will be doing well to keep abreast of our factory, just think if we had mark o connor the last day ye would have been hosed but thems the breaks and we don't like to whinge, so really who finished with a reserve team I wonder, but hea wat a reserve team, would have won it only for a soft free.

No don't really know what you mean. Murphy still scored 1-7. Some amount of whinging for one who does not like to. Be it O'Connor in Oz or soft frees given for typical forwards tackle.

I thought Donegal would win on Sunday, i felt they were a little further along than us albeit coming from divison 2.
I think that both teams after Sunday are very evenly matched.
I didnt like the treatment dished out to Clifford and OShea off the ball and Murphy was lucky not to have connected with Gavun White.
Overall though i really like Bonner a well spoken articulate and genuine man.
Donegal will beat Mayo no question.

Very childish response to be fair and regard the following ripostes from the Donegal posters, well then all I can say is, pot and kettle and oh ye actually have a very fine team, a team I would be delighted for ye to beat the dubs, the reserve team crap by one of your posters irked me especially since overall both teams were even, thems the breaks.

For a man who doesn't like to whinge, you sure do a lot of it.

I can assure you the off the ball stuff was not just one way. Plus while I agree O'Shea and Clifford got extra attention they no innocents either. Both have great movement but both were also guilty of gaining extra space not always legally. Anyways that is why it was such a good game. Both teams playing sometimes over the edge but nothing nasty. But combining it with skill from the very top drawer.

This has to be a wind up? O'Brien kept us in the game? I could just as easily state that Murphy or McHugh kept Donegal in the game. It works both ways my friend. Did you miss Geaneys 1-4 from play btw?

As for injuries, Kerry's treatment table is just as busy as Donegals. Very little between the teams on Sundays evidence. Two up and coming teams full of young talent. I look forward to the next encounter, hopefully in this years final :)

Childish knows childish.. listen, you've a savage team too and I have great faith in our group, seems to be some post-match needle, not needed as the game was the game of the year and both teams made a massive statement.

Oh the irony, Kerry lads whinging about the attention that Clifford and O'Sé got on one hand, whilst rejoicing in the treatment that O'Mahoney gave Murphy in the 2014 Final, ably assisted by Crowley I might add, on the other hand.
On that day at least 2 Kerry players caught, and squeezed, Murphy by the Adams Apple. A tactic clearly designed to get Murphy to strike out in self defence. Disgraceful behaviour, and to suggest that this wasn't in the pre match briefing document would be absurd.

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "I actually seen the penalty incident back domegalman and I don't know what O'Brien was supposed to do ? He had to stand his ground,?

And is it not the attacking players responsibility to go around the defender or else it's barging surely?

As for the guy who said Steve head butted the Donegal player, who headbutts people with their mouths?"
That's the thing. He didn't stand his ground, O'Baoil moved right and dropped the ball to shoot and O'Brien moved left and bodychecked him. Stonewall pen and should of been a black card which could of cost Kerry the game as O'Brien was immense throughout. Kerry got lucky

What about the treatment Enright was giving Murphy off the ball? Is it okay because it was a Kerry man doing it?

Well said Gerry. Though I do take rocks point about probably been slightly more effected by injuries.

In numbers maybe, but Kerry losing David Moran is akin to Donegal losing Murphy. I'm not saying he is directly as good as Murphy but he is our leader and talisman and we don't have a replacement for him. When I saw he was missing I was sure we were done for. His absence was a bigger blow than any of the others on either team imo, and it's not even close.
