Wins are important , the legacy these lads will leave is massive , one of playing the game for the team , savage skill set , smashing blokes off the pitch , and able to mix it anyway you like , I'm old school and while I loved loved the Gilroy win the end of the famine, the football and style played by these lads is on a whole different level.

It's scary just how used to going to the All-Ireland Final we're getting!

No matter what happens these are glory days.

Always think of how many semi-finals we lost in the 00's

Always remember those hamemrings dished out by Kerry, Tyrone, Meath

Never forget the games lost to Westmeath /Laois / Kildare

Never forget all those horror shows above!!

These are exceptional times

What team we have. What a manager we have. What a CB we have.

Now lets fecking go and become the best team of all fecking time...

Couldn't have put it better Jimbo.

It is mad how things have changed in the space of 6 years.
Dreamland stuff.
I remember sitting watching Kerry give Dublin a hiding in 09 and think I will never see Dublin beat Kerry.
They are just too good I thought to myself
I was sick of the sight of Kerry it was the first time I wanted to leave a game early because Dublin were getting hammered.

Now I could not be prouder to be a Dub.
Years from now (when we are all old and grey/greyer or have even less hair) people will be asking what were that Dublin era like?

It has got to the stage where naming O'Connell street Gavin street does not seem so far fetched.
Adapting changing tactics innovation, blooding new players. Not afraid to drop the big names.
Jim Gavin is THE man.

The only problem Dublin will have in years to come is where will they find the space for all the new statues to the players?

Unbelievable few years but the scars of those bitter defeats to Tyrone, Kerry and that semi to Mayo haven't yet healed. We made some inroads with that performance against Tyrone on Sunday but a 3 in a row with a decent win over Mayo would really repair the mental damage of those desperate defeats in the 00s. Stories to tell our kids and grandkids, how we followed the greatest Dublin (any county) team up and down the country and were there to witness some of the best football ever played by the best group of players ever assembled. Jayzis, I never thought that I'd see these days when we couldn't buy a Sam from 84-94 and 96-10.

Hang on............ The be grudgers are on the way!

You may have also buried the defensive game also!

Very impressive!

O'Rourke on about splitting Dublin, ah here!

Kerry won 7 All Ireland's in 9 years back 30 years ago or so! No talk then!

Those defeats you mention have absolutely no bearing on today or the team that will play in a fortnight. They are as different as chalk and cheese.
Whether Dublin win 3 in a row or not they have consigned those defeats to history and are a completely different animal today. The past is the past.

3 finals in a row, with at least 2 wins... very rare times indeed, thoroughly enjoying them.
