Dublin Vs Kerry

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


I think the result matters more to Kerry than Dublin, with the form Kerry showed last week you'd have to fancy them here.
Should be a top class game anyway and might give us a hint as to where Sam might be next Winter.

Be disappointed if we show anything like our hand this early, hopefully mins in the legs and keep developing the kids, we're not going to learn anything else beyond that from a national league at this stage in our team cycle. if Kerry beat us by anything less then five, I think we will win the All Ireland again this year.

It's a bit of an irrelevant fixture for us really, if we win or loose it doesn't change much. It's a loose, loose for Kerry, if they loose they are under pressure, if they win they are under the pressure of expectation - but who knows they could live up to it!

I liked the experimentation in the forward line by Kerry last weekend. Clifford for me has needed support and legs around him for a couple of seasons now, finally someone down the South West has noticed. Trick will be punishing the men that takes forward and the vulnerability in behind through the central channel and squeezing the pips of their back line by running, flooding, overloading, intricate passing, stretching and breaking lines, let your own quality do the business. Don't expect any of that this weekend think we will do rope a dope and be happy enough to go man on man and just plain give nothing like a strategy away, can't see us being to stressed by a result we're to long on the road, unless we get something like the Galway treatment, who knows!

Replying To endgame:  "The assumption of a Dublin v Kerry All Ireland Final seems a bit previous .Dublin will be there.They'll walk through Leinster and there's nothing in Connacht to beat them in the semi final. Kerry though,while winning Munster handy i'd say, will have it all to do against the Ulster champions. I'd expect either Tyrone or Donegal to win Ulster and either of them would be a big challenge for Kerry.Far too much is being read into the Kerry v Galway result.The media overegging it and not for the first time."
Oh true. I mean the Kerry Dublin game won't define any of the teams season. By no means are Kerry guaranteed to be in all ireland final. As you say even if we should win munster then it's a 50 50 semi if its Donegal or Tyrone.

Tbh I don't think the game will have any bearing on the championship. I don't think Kerry need to win as they have beaten Dublin a couple of times in the league recently and drawn also and certainly the result won't affect Dublin either. I just think it's a game both sets of supporters enjoy for many reasons and both will want to win but neither team will be too upset regardless of the result.

Replying To jimbodub:  "Hope Dublin continue on from last weekend and continue to give up and comings a good run

Its a glorified training game

Although with Kerry being far "more of a league team" these days they'll probably take it seriously."
Well ye have lots of practise at the training games seeing as ye broke lockdown etc going training so Dubs should win based on that. Kerry did not train during lockdown- ye may have lots of money but you cannot buy class.

Now who do you think said that :)"
Yes I did- what is the problem?? I did not ref bash in my comment (as I mentioned no referee did I) If you cannot work out the inference there I think you may need to go back to school dear.

It's interesting that a lot of the dublin posters on here are pushing the narrative that this game doesn't matter or mean anything and that it's only a bit of "fun" but the actions of the dublin footballers suggests a lot different when they broke the law/lock down rules to go collective training for the league and Kerry didn't.

That's exactly it, they'd only begin some kind of collective training a few weeks before the championship started if that is the case. They'll not pawn that one on anyone. I'm watching them.

Well that is it exactly. As I said previously you cannot buy class no matter how much money you have.

It will be a tight game. The 2 best teams in the country on their day . Kerry still best placed to take them down, Mayo closely behind. While both teams can talk down the importance of it there is no harm to them psychologically getting the right result.

Dublin didn't panic at half time in the final last year because they always beat Mayo in recent times, beit league or championship. That makes a difference.

Well now

It was 9 players having a kick about

Not collective training. Not even close

It was still silly though and rightly punished. It was wrong.

In terms of breaking the law

It was hardly as bad as biting members of our police force was it?

So please stop spouting self serving lies and misinformation about Dublin collectively training for months, as such would have been easily proven but coming from the likes of you.. is it any surprise to see such nonsense being spouted?

Please post your evidence for it or do all you have is made up tosh... if it's not making wild groundless claims targeting refs, it's your above purposely misleading nonsense..

Back it up or shut up like a good man

But sure you'll just continue to peddle your idiocy

Even your own slags you off on here.. :)

Dublin are going for 7 in a row

Do you really think this game will have any sort of psychological impact on them...

Dublin and Kerry are in two completely different head spaces in terms of getting hyped up for this one for the championship ahead

I hope Dublin continue with the young lads and give them game time, result is not important, it's to look at options and see what's available for when it is.

Dubs have nothing to prove and the same can't be said about their opposition

Couldn't they have a kickabout in a local park or beach then if that's the case. Why were they going into a football pitch to do so? In the early morning too. I presume like most clubs around the country the Dublin club in question would have a pitch closed sign up, did they walk past the sign for a harmless kickabout and if so why did they do this please? And btw if you saw the pics they had training cones down also. This is a quote from an article "They took part in a series of fitness drills and practised ball skills while a man appeared to keep watch close to the entrance to the facility"

Your fellow county man was making similar claims about Kerry yet I didn't see you rush for them to back up their claims. Odd that.

It's actually quite funny how you see yourself as this voice of high morality on everything yet will post the same thing yourself without any hit of shame.

As for the Dublin players training, that's what it was despite trying to say otherwise, it definitely wasn't the worst thing a Dublin player has done in recent years, but I'm sure you'll just ignore that as it doesn't fit your narrative....

Sorry to have to be the 1 to tell you this but 9 players having a kick about is "collective training" jim :-)

Do you expect everyone to believe that it was only those 9 dublin players that were at it and the other 40 lads were doing nothing only gym work?

It's not up to me to prove anything as I was at home not breaking the law or lockdown rules but the picture in the paper was worth a thousand words in this case and said it all.

dublin going to such lengths breaking the law/rules to win the league is interesting though as it show a bit of insecurity in yer management team.

Also you keep saying things like I'm the most disliked poster on here and now that even my own are slagging me off? yet I'm still here and here il stay.
