Same here. It's intriguing. I would say a draw is not belong the bounds of possibility at all.

Replying To TheUsername:  "Ha ha ive visions of a heap of Kerry fans marching like white walkers making their way to the Luas stop after parking up at the Red Cow, as close as they feel safe to leave the oul Skoda Octavia inside the M50. ;)

"Yerra, what's a leap card". :D"
Yerra, we are more like the Wildlings and no need for a leap card when we can leap all on our own ...hup hup...up the Kingdom

A draw wouldn't be bad but I'm an all or nothing kinda fella plus I don't think the ticker could take another bout but it would shorten the winter I suppose.

Nonsense thread. Kerry supporters best in the land.

They are a bunch of animals down there, thats according to their own folk/legends

Surely that day is gone now ,

Going up to HQ it more hope rather than expectancy now , so im hoping their fans will show up for the big day and show Dublin that they are a match both on and off the pitch.

There will be 35-40,000 Kerry supporters making the long long trip to Dublin Sunday for an allireland final that nobody gives us a chance in, so I'd say we have a pretty decent support to be fair.

Some improvement on your 82 five in a row attempt against Armagh and a semi final attended by just 17,500, the vast majority from Armagh.

He was more than 'their own folk/legends'. He was a national legend.

Don't speak ill/condescendingly of the dead a mhac.

A draw would be a dream result for the GAA, another massive day out and there'd be serious hype for the replay, at the minute I think everyone is expecting the Dubs to win it comfortably, I'd include myself in that camp, finals are funny things though, look what happened us in '14, I was fairly confident that day but a combination of Kerry adapting and playing well and our boys just not showing up for some strange reason resulted in a Kerry win,
the historic 5 in a row will be there in the Dublin lads minds and they are rightly hot favourites, magnificent team, could end up being closer than a lot of us are thinking at the minute though I suppose.
On the Kerry support thing I suppose it's just that they have won so much, for counties like ourselves it's massive to get to a semi final or final, not to mind win the thing, the place went stone mad in '92 I'll never forget it.

Might help if replay didn't clash with listowel. Easy for dubs to talk when they never have to travel, let alone on a saturday evening late. Hotels I dublin not cheap if you have a family.

True, great display from Kerry today, Sean O'Shea is some player, Spillane's Barry etc, Moran was magnificent at midfield, Dublin weren't themselves today,I could see it in the Kerry lads eyes when they were doing the handshakes that they were up for the battle. great for us neutrals to see a rematch I think Kerry might have missed their chance today but the Kerry lads will also have got a big confidence boost today not that they need it,the football pedigree is there, they won't be 5/1 for the replay anyway.

In his post match interview, Peter Keane referenced "12 thousand Kerry fans". Ye surely had more than that?

Thats because down through the years Kerry folk thought it was their god given right to win the All Ireland every year
so never really showed up .
Bit different now .

Played well yesterday and took them on and i hope the media dont lam-bast those Kerry kids
the way lambasted Mayo players for drawing with Dublin .

Its a calendar event so you've had 12 months to prepare for it.
Odd seeing that you come from a county known for their cute Hoorisim .
Cavan mum or dad by any chance ?

Smart ass, you obviously don't have a family? Family of 4, Tickets 400, hotel 278, Skyline tour 52, discounted tour 18, diesel 70, Food 120? = 938 approx., not counting the few limited pints, no hectic sessions with young family, sweets etc. Stayed the weekend. I can afford it, there's many that can't. Many have Kids only after going back to school costs, summer costs etc etc.
