Dublin V Cavan

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Bonus territory. Cavan have a better midfield then Meath and a better goalie, so can make more use out of the kickouts. Meath conceded 2-1 from their own kickouts.
The space of Croke Park will suit the Cavan half backs, who like to drive forward, Ciaran Brady, Gerry Smith, Luke Fortune. Dealing with the Dublin attacking will be the issue and intensity they bring.
Today will have given Cavan confidence but a big ask

Your having a laugh. Dublin would have had donegal beaten at half time? Fair play cavan no excuses they had the fire in the belly but what happened today was Donegal were already togged out ready for a rattle at Dublin and I still think they would have beaten ye!
Thompson was rested to give mc brearty game time etc nobody to blame but ourselves.
The gap is not as wide as people think there are too many astrixes beside Dublins dominance and when its a level playing field it will be much tighter but it needs to happen soon. Even the hard-core Dublin supporter would agree with me saying something needs to be done before the game is ruined.
Good luck Cavan

Kilkenny didnt have a list of barely believable systemic advantages.

I wont bother watching this semi. Neither would I suspect will most Dublin fans. It will be a record breaker for a semi final. Ĺ

Venue not decided yet, no need for it to be in HQ., Taking winter weather into account, an enclosed pitch with a good surface, (armagh pitch held up well today). Maybe behind the scenes Cavan should be consulted, maybe they want their semi in Croker? Pairc ui Caoimh surface looks fab, could Tipp host Mayo there, probably a big ask for Cavan to travel to Cork.

We'll just have to disagree on that one. On average I'd say Dublin are about 10 points better than us. If we play our best game and Dublin have an off-day we'd be within a couple of points maybe.

When you take the emotion out of it, and Cavan will have had a release today, Dubs around 15 points better than Cavan. If Cavan play like today and Dublin aren't at the races they may get within 5 or 6

Play it where they want. Outside of Dublin and Cavan there will be little to no interest in this one.

Away with ye so. I'd watch it no matter who was playing. Each to their own.

They could play it in Navan. It's a different year, so something novel could be good.

Cavans big challenge will be to put today's win, great as it was, out of their minds as quickly as possible & get back into the frame of mind that brought them success against Donegal.
If they can do that, and it's a big ask, the they will give a Dublin team that hasn't broken sweat yet a real game.

Saying something repeatedly doesn't make it true

But it does reinforce ignorance alright

Cavan. Cork and Tipp. Cavan and tipp in division 3 next year. Cork division 3 this year! A few of these teams would not have been challenging for Sam, based on GAA's new innovation on Division 3 teams not being in All Ireland unless they win provincial title! Abolish this idea and abolish back door! Give the underdogs a chance!!!!

The pitch is brutal at the best of times let alone November / december time.
