Replying To Dubh_linn:  "That's what always gets ye.
Scared of being favorites."
Dublin 4/6 to win All Ireland. Dublin 7/4 to win 7 in a row. 100/30 to win 8 in a row. 11/2 to win 9 in a row. 9/1 to win 10 in a row.

That's grand.
We're not bookies on here though.
Lots of people outside of bookies have Kerry as favorites.

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "Mattie did his cruciate as far as I know, he'll be some loss."
Yes; see: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/gaelic-games/50677031
Mattie had an almost Dooher type role for Tyrone, lot of unsung work, hard to replace for either club or county. Harte was talking up an early return, but that's very unrealistic. Could be up to 2 years. Combine that length of lay-off with the inevitable loss of conditioning and game-readiness and you're looking at min 2 years before he could be properly back. Add in that's he's pushing 30, with career at a big 4 accountancy firm starting to make more demands as you get past rookie stage and a young family, and you'd have to say that, if he does make it back, it'll only be after a mighty effort. Though no better man to put the head down and give it 200%; seriously committed guy. But a huge ask imho.

Connacht is the hardest province to predict. Mayo, Roscommon and Galway all capable of winning it but Galway are rightly favourites as they have the easier route to the final.

Ulster is between the two division 1 sides Donegal, Tyrone. Monaghan under Banty, Armagh, Fermanagh won't be good enough to win it.

Munster kerry
Dublin Leinster and the All Ireland are formality

Donegal , Galway, Dublin & Kerry in the provincials.

Kerry for the All Ireland.

Ulster: Donegal
Munster: Kerry
Connacht: Galway
Leinster: Dublin

AI: Kerry

I think Kerry are best equipped to topple Dublin. Peter Keane will have a stronger panel with the likes of Crowley back and the older Clifford lad. Plus, Kerry have that heritage and arrogance needed to go toe to toe with Dublin and genuinely believe that they're a better team than them. I say that in a good way, it's not a dig.

Other contenders like ourselves, Mayo, Tyrone all have a puncher's chance, but a lot of things would need to go right for any to beat Dublin in an AI final IMO.

Finally getting around to 2020 predictions.
Leinster. Dublin
Munster. Kerry
Connacht Galway
Ulster. Tyrone.

Other counties in the mix.
Meath, if they could see out 70/75 minutes, and get anotherone or two forwards. A season in Divison 1 of the league will improve Meath.
Cork. Minor and U20 champions, they will be promoted from Divsion 3, and will be a team to watch in the All Iteland series.
Galway. I hope they scrap the defensive attitude of the past few seasons, and revert to their attractive style of former years.

AI - Tricky one. I think its between ourselves and Kerry. But you'd have to give Kerry the edge. We've now done what no team has previously done before, The 5 in a Row! Regardless of the new manager, the hunger levels just cant be as high as previous years, they just cant be, its impossible. Whereas Kerry will be Hungrier than they've ever been. And lets face it, you need that level of hunger to get over the line. Just look at last years drawn final, the level of hunger we showed in them last 10 mins was incredible, we absolutely refused to be beaten despite being a man down. That level of hunger just wont be there this year, despite what anyone says, it just wont. And for that reason I'll give the nod to Kerry...hope I'm wrong of course!
