Lads this is a great Dublin team we are on the first steps of a journey,  I think the Leinster Final will be a harsh lesson in the gap between Dublin & Laois.  Enjoy the occasion but hopefully Laois keep their eye on the ball winning the Super 8 Qualifier game would be an outrageous achievement.  Laois wonít be beating Dublin but hopefully we keep our eye on the real prize the Super 8ís which is highly achievable with a favorable draw.  Regardless it has been some year but this should not paper over the issues we have at juvenile level.  Where we simply are not producing enough to compete at the top table.

Letís be realistic here not a hope in hell,  if you want to be delusional work away.  That bull of believing you can beat them ďif you really wantĒ is silly talk this Dublin team is possibly one of the all time greats we struggled to get over a limited Carlow.  Thatís not to say we  can put in a performance that troubles Dublin then I would be euphoric regardless of result.
Thank f**k you're not in charge of the team.

I hate to tell you this but Santa Claus, The Tooth Fairy and the Easter Bunny are not real 8).  Laois have traveled along way this year and that should be celebrated but this Dublin team is on the verge of legendary status after nearly a decade of building.   It will be nice playing them and somewhere deep down there is the hope we can pull off a victory but we are 100/1 to win this.  But Laois have had a good year and as Napoleon said "give me lucky generals" hopefully the draw in the qualifiers is kind and we can get into the Super 8's and I don't think many on here would have envisaged that at the start of the year.

Likewise serious injury best wishes Stephen

So happy to have been there . Pride well restored in the jersey. Just a word about some of the so called Carlow support . They were itching to argue everything .if a Lapis lad fouled they were screaming for cards and if I even looked sideways they were in my ear . Delighted we bet them cos they are a cynical team
I thought I was just unlucky where I was sitting!
Look, every county has a percentage of arsehole supporters but I thought Carlow had a particularly high amount today.

Nothing wrong with been an arsehole when your winning they jumped the gun

I donít know what spread is against Dublin but hard to call where we are considering the dire shit served up by Carlow but well done to all involved Leinster Final  a serious achievement considering where we were last year

P>S UP Laois, I really think we will hammer them today so defeat is not in my head

Unfortunately Tony, losing will mess our year up thatís just life.  It may not be fair but thatís the way it is.

It will be a shocking game which Laois win if we donít bomb the ball down the throat of their midfielder Murphy.  He went to town on us the last day, Broderick missed everything but we also pulled up when going handy.

Great read from the Irish Examiner

That's one of the best GAA articles I've read in a long time. Some of the forward play in the second half was top drawer stuff and in the space of Croke Park we can expect more.


Westmeaths defending was chronic which in fairness Laois made hay with.

In fairness Carlow GAA had nothing to do with Danny,  sledging welcome to big boys football only one way to get round it and thatís on the scoreboard.  Whining about it means you lost, winners could not care less.

, if you are feeling lucky Laois are 33/1 to win Leinster

What odds on Laois Carlow and Longford in Leinster semiís at start of championship. Be some day in Crocker for all three counties.

Not as mad as you might think rough estimate 124/1

Kildare was the real upset

Well done Laois they worked hard and while Carlow have to be respected they are no where near the anticipated challenge of a decent Kildare outfit.

We will be favorites.

I may have jumped the gun a bit, Carlow leading by 5 points at half time. With their defensive approach it will be really hard for Kildare to reel that in. If it Carlow we face that would be some battle, I think Croker would suit Laois better if it was Carlow.

likewise, never even contemplated Carlow and thatís because I have seen them.

Lets see how they go against Carlow, but my guess is 5 or better.
