Dublin V Kerry

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


10 days and counting. What sort of team will Dessie line out. Mixture of youth and experience?

Will McHugh get more of an opportunity? Think we will see alot more of POCB, Basquel's, Mc Gowan, Gavin.

Will Rory O'Carroll be more up to the pace of things with a years training under his belt?

Would like to see Connolly play the whole league.

1) Comerford
2) D Byrne
3) Mick Fitz
4) E Lowndes
5) Jack Mc
6) McCarthy
7) Small
8) Fenton
9) D Gavin
10) Howard
11) Kilkenny
12) Connolly
13) C Basquel
14) PCOB
15) ROCK

Personally wouldn't go as strong Jack, id manage loads phasing in and out the staring 15, game by game, but the real value of these games is developing.

We had a gambit of lads involved in Sigerson at the week end we could well have a good look at not all but a good few off.

UCD: Liam Flatman (Kilmacud Crokes), Peadar ó Cofaigh Byrne (Cuala), Niall O'Leary (Kilmacud Crokes), Evan Caulfield (Clanna Gael Fontenoy), Seán Egan (St Brigid's), Kieran Kennedy (Ballyboden St Enda's) and Cillian O'Shea (Kilmacud Crokes); Maynooth University: Daire Newcombe (Lucan Sarsfields) and Darragh Warnock (Castleknock); DCU Dochas Eireann: Declan Monaghan (Clontarf), (Ballymun Kickhams), Paul Tolan (Nh Barróg), Seán Bugler (St Oliver Plunkett/Eoghan Ruadh), Stephen Smith (Skerries Harps), Tom Fox (Kilmacud Crokes), Shane Carthy (Nh Mearnóg), Seán McMahon (Raheny), Paddy Small (Ballymun Kickhams), Neil Matthews (Erin's Isle), Karl Lynch Bissett (Nh Mearnóg) and Conor Hickey (St Margaret's); TU Dublin (DIT), Oisín Lynch (Fingallians), Callum Pearson (Kilmacud Crokes), Andy McGowan (Kilmacud Crokes), Tom Keane (Nh Olaf) and Seán Walsh (St Pat's, Donabate); Garda College: Kieran Doherty (St Jude's)

Comerford, Con and Howard were involved (Con injured) as well, but id count them as established at this point.

Really id be hoping we would be looking at a good few of these lads and giving opportunities, on top of some of the lads who put their hands up on Saturday.

National league wont teach our starting 15 anything in my opinion.

But it will be up Dessie about what his goal is with it.

To be honest i think we are beyond putting down markers etc at this stage so i hope he takes it easy and look at it as development exercise and just about stay up and have a bit of craic along the way.

A bit of a lottery of a game to be honest. Dubs only off the plane, I think Kerry were away as well?

It'll be nice to stroll up the road and meet a few heads but there won't be much learned from the game I'd say.

I'd be surprised if Dessie names a team that strong to be honest but who knows. POCB at full forward would be interesting all right. A nice advanced mark option. Dessie may want to blood some youngfellas at Croker. I'm not a Croker fan for league matches, give me the Neller any day, but let's hope there's a bit of atmosphere and some decent football on show.

Think most advanced marks will be won getting out in front and into the chest if I'm honest.

Actually think it might suit speedier forwards then bigger lads, punch down in defending fielding will be the vogue thing.

Jack McCaffery in the half forward line! ;)

Hard to see past Dublin in this game the manager might have changed but the team remains the same, Farrell will want a win to keep his foot on the throat of the Kerrymen.

Would love to see Cormac Howley get more game time. At the minute he's being reduced to O'Byrne Cup matches where everyone plays for themselves. He's the real deal. Fitzsimons did brilliantly on Clifford in All Ireland matches, Howley destroyed him in last years Championship semi final. Tall, fast, both feet, great attitude.

This will be Kerry's best chance to beat Dublin this year.

Hes a terrific emerging player in my opinion and ive given him a big shout out on the Dublin forum and would like to see involved, has many of the natural attributes and skills you want to see in an inter county player and for the Dublin way of playing. Had a great year at club with RTL.

The competition is fierce mind.

Think Dessie will blood a few young guys in this match, it is the right time and place to do it.

Cannot see us winning it.

I agree with you, I think new Jim will go all out to win this game as he'll get plenty of opertunity to blood young lads in the other games.

New Jim will want to stick to the script setout by old Jim and getting off to a good start by beating our young lads in his first big game in Croker.

Dublin by 7 with boot being kept firmly on our necks.

Dublin came back from holiday late last season and came a cropper in Clones. I think they will treat this years league with the same seriousness that they treated last years; ie none. Kerry have the hunger, the team and the motivation.

I think you must be taking the p there Tom.
Opportunity knocks for Kerry.
Ye should win at a canter.
