Replying To TheUsername:  "Absolutely over the moon, a tilt at an All Ireland is irrelevant for me, we were only a bit of luck away from it this year in my opinion anyway and we would have been targeting it this year anyway.

It's the joy in seeing the two lads back, watching them play and having two of the best players in the county back again, it's a frustrating thing knowing you are taking to the field and some of the counties best players aren't available. Dubs will be over the moon this morning.

There is going to be a zip in training, going to be a dog fight for competition and we are see serious strengthens of two lines, both Jack and Paul offer us a different dimension, the panel now looks immensely strong

If my read is correct I think both lads have hit life goals, I know both have spent time away, from a footballing point of view I think they needed another mountain to climb with 5 in a row in the bag, there s a challlenge there now to reassert Dublin as the top dog, despite the narrative both and particularly Jack have huge time for Dessie. I also think being in Div 2, is part of the lads decision, different games then the sameness of Div 1 and being able to play in grounds they wouldn't usually.

Overall, they are two of marquee players who were two clutch players on a team that achieved what no one in football ever could or has before, they strengthen us significantly. Key though is we don't start there, we have a few who are breaking through this year we need to give opportunities to, we have to continue t nurture, O Dell and Gannin after good break out years, Archer is looking fit this club championship, maybe O Donnell will throw his lot in with the footballers.

Bring on the Spring, can wait now.

Welcome home lads & as always,

Up The Dubs!"
Well said Username and while I hope they don't haunt Kerry it is great for football to see the two boys coming back. I'm particularly pleased for Dessie as I always believed he was getting a raw deal from Dublin fans in particular. I have argued with many that yes Cluxton left because of the covid training but Mannion and Jack Mac was different. People never blamed Jim Gavin when many players left for long periods including Jack Mac Mannion Roory Ó Carroll Ciarán Kilkenny and even Diarmuid Connolly. Dublin now will look very strong again next year and it has the makings of a great championship. I believe Kerry will be stronger next year too as will Tyrone and Mayo. Great Times ahead.

Excellent post

Great show of respect and commitment to Dessie who was unlucky enough this year

Con out and McCarthty struggling were massive issues considering the way they were both moving before the injuries

Fantastic news on the boys

Bring on Div 2

Anyone else starting to feel a bit of the old verve returning ;)
