Meath wouldn't beat the likes of Galway.. Roscommon..Mayo..Tyrone..at the moment. Delusional to think any different. Dublin as dead cert as a Lewis Hamilton formula one win.

When was the last time you beat your neighbours, Dublin.

We might pose the question; would Meath have a chance of winning the Ulster,Connacht or Munster championship? The answer is no. Not at the moment anyway. Progress is being made, but at a snails pace.

When was the last time anyone beat Dublin in the Championship, if the best in Connacht, Munster or Ulster couldn't do it, then I think it's a bit disingenuous to expect a team like Meath to do the job for them. Anyone who knows their football would know that the Leinster Championship is a wasteland and unless the GAA radically change the All-Ireland Championship that will be a wasteland as well in a few years. Hopefully the yank will introduce the sleepy overpaid overcoats in HQ to coffee, to wake them from their slumber, and see the current format is a farce, if not then counties seriously need to think of boycotting the competition.

Replying To KingdomBoy1:  "100% Royaldunne, Meath could beat anyone of those teams that I mentioned in a 1 off game, now i will be accused of poor mouthing or yerrah yerrah but we were beat by Cork coming out of div 3 last November, Donegal were bate by a Cavan team dropping into division 3, there are a cohort of teams that on any given Saturday or Sunday can beat each other, teams like Kerry Tyrone Donegal and Mayo that people say can challenge dublin can have a bad day at the office and get caught and that has proved to be through ( Mayo kildare, Mayo Roscommon, Tyrone Kerry, Kerry Galway, Kerry Cork Cavan Donegal) but then you have dublin a mile out in front, they don't have bad days, a bad day for dublin is when they only beat you by 10 points instead of 20."
Since Mayo last beat Dublin in 2012 by 3 points the Dubs have only beaten Mayo by 10 once. There have been 2 draws and a few 1 point wins. Last year was the only other time Dublin won by more than 1 in that time I think

That's real nonsense talk. Boycott? Are you for real? Should Offaly have refused to play Kerry when they were going for 5 in a row? Sure there was no point turning up.......

We were lucky to beat Meath in the league last year. James Horan even said it afterwards. I think they were very competitive against us in the super 8s in 2019.

Very poor analogy, Offaly were runners up the previous year and with one of the greatest players to have ever played the game on their team, in Matt Connor. His 2-09 against Kerry in the 1980 semi final is considered one of the best personal performances in the history of Gaelic Football. Google Matt Connor and you'll learn something.

This will probably offend Mayo posters but Mayo were never going to win those games against dublin as they don't do allireland finals, like a fella said to me 1 time if Mayo played the Christian brothers school in dromcondra in an allireland final theyd manage to lose it.

With all the talk of Mayo in the Last decade we played them 5 times in the championship in 2011 semifinal we bate them in 2014 we drew then bate them in the replay in 2017 we drew and they won the replay and in 2019 we bate them by 10 points so that's 3 wins for Kerry 2 draws and 1 win for Mayo and we were septic in the last decade only winning 1 allireland.

How far ye have fallen when your listing wins over Mayo. We know where we stand. As for Kerry it must be sore to see the 5 in a row and Dublin chipping away at yer record.

"]Died recently heard alot about him although I never saw him play only in tv clips. Great player for sure. Donegal, Kerry, Mayo etc all have great players too. Matt O Connor wouldn't have been the boycotting type from what I've read hed just have tried harder.

But that is the point. For all that Dublin rarely beat them out the gate.

That's it. Look we getting there. But it is taking time. Must also be remembered that we have lost the likes of Newman and graham Reilly those two are hard to replace, I think we had one of the youngest teams (avg age) playing last year.

This thread probably explains the primary reason for Dublins current success. They have won alot of the games they have played in recent years before they even left the dressing room. Kildare especially with the recent minor success they have had should be getting closer to the Dubs year on year. Players dont need to hear the negativity that threads like this are spouting. Might be one of the reasons why so many arent committing to senior inter county.

There is a big dose of irony in a Cavan supporter asking would Meath have a chance of winning Ulster. Cavan, a D.3 team, winning Ulster last year proves Meath would have a chance in Ulster. Same could be said of Tipperary's (another D.3 team) win in Munster last year. A huge disadvantage to teams like Meath and Kildare going into the current season is we have a much less chance of provincial success to incentivise our players (compared to if we were in any other provence).

They would of course have a chance just as we did last year!! They would also have a chance in Connacht- not too many superpowers there now- sure you could get Leitrim or sligo in semi finals, straight into final and one big performance and a below par performance from the big two and you are champions. No need to be so patronising
