Cillian O'Sullivan may have been good today.

Lets see how good he is in two weeks time.

We don't fear them either.

They are inferior to us right now in every aspect of their game.

We've too much and we should win handily enough whether they fear us or not.

But sport is nuts.

Wayno,
It's a game of football Between two counties with great history, 25 years since the great 4 game saga.
We thankfully have a lot of better footballers at the moment and we are winning the battles. It's a game we should win.
and for me we can't beat them enough , but Meath have a lot of pride and will want to give everything against us.
So this talk of them being inferior , is a bit much and arrogant to be honest.
Lets enjoy where we are .

I'm not so sure it's arrogant to say they're an inferior team to us. I think it's fair to say it's true, in a football sense of course.
And I'm pretty sure they fear us, as in fear of losing to us, which let's be honest is more than likely to happen. If I'm wrong, I'll be very surprised and will give Meath the respect they would deserve for beating us.

Meath would do well to keep it to under 10 points of a deficit.

Not only that they have proven to be mentally fragile following the collapse against Westmeath last year.
So even if by some miracle Meath stick with Dublin and make it competitive a collapse will be around the corner.

Maybe the soccer Nordies will be singing that (secretly) after they are knocked out of the euros?

Irrespective of the last couple of meetings between the teams and the fact that we have been far superior to Meath since 2010, I firmly believe that this game is fraught with danger for us. Meath have absolutely nothing to lose, apparently have put in a monumental training regime over last number of months,will want to get one over their old rivals and have a manager who is in last chance saloon. Their team looks to have a speedy half forward line and Cillian o Sullivan at 11 is a really fine player who is a playmaker that can make a team tick. There inside forward line is strong physically and quite tall so I would imagine they will test our full back line with some high and cross field balls. We will need to be very close to our best for this one and any over confidence could have serious repercussions for us getting a positive result. Yes we are all Ireland champion, league and Leinster champions but our great rivals have been known to rise from no where with a good team and we need to nip any progress that they are making in the bud. I have no doubt if both teams perform to their level best that we will win but anything less from us could make it very tight. Be forewarned this will be no walk in the park.

Fair enough adamski,but i think there is a bit of a gulf in class,and Meath's performance yesterday has done nothing to change that.I fancy a 10 + victory.

We also are down to two all stars and also the life cycle of any time at its prime is never more than 5 years. My point is that we just have to be very careful.

Yes i agree.I think we have the right man in charge who will make sure the players are not complacent.

In fairness to Meath its been 10 weeks since they had a competitive game.Louth had 2 since. Dublin are obviously hot favourites,but with a little less rustyness,Meath would have won by 10-15 points yesterday.They were that much better on the day.From our point of view it will be interesting to see if we learnt anything from 2 years ago.

Interesting game ahead

If Meath go man v man it'll be a long day for them, just don't see them being able to handle our forwards without a game plan

Obvious enough that they'll more than likely go defensive

Follow suit with the rest, drop men back, try and put pressure on our kickouts etc, etc.. We're well versed to that at this stage and Meath aren't going to reinvent the wheel and come up with anything that we haven't seen and conquered before

I can see us being better defensively against Meath, Gavin wasn't pleased by what he saw against Laois, despite his press stance, Can't see us being caught like that again, and there's a couple of lads that'll want to prove such

Flynn should be back, and maybe Andrews. We should have more options up front

Dublin by +7

Well if we go to man to man and don't have a gameplan Micko can resign after the game.
