I think it's a weird one for us, because there was no expectation of facing Dublin in a League final again after the way results were going. The fact it come just 7 days after Tyrone game aswell doesn't help with build up.
I don't think we're fully ready yet to take on Dublin. We need 100% strength and that means Jameso, Enright, Young and a few of the 21s. All unavailable for this game Sunday, so much like last year I can see us competing for much of the game but possibly falling off a bit in the last quarter. Dublin's bench (whoever is on it) will make an impact and if they had the same personnel to come on as they had in Tralee a few weeks ago, it would make a bigger difference in Croker.
Some of the shite in the media recently (Paul Curran etc) hasn't even had much impact, although Fitzmaurice fired a few shots back the other day. I don't think it makes a blind bit of difference. Logically, Dublin are 5/6 points a better squad right now and that will probably show again on Sunday. If Gavin decided to try out a few options again (Reddin, Scully etc) to see how they handle it, it may narrow the gap somewhat, but still hard to see Kerry winning unless they improve hugely from even last week when an abject Tyrone limped in and out of Killarney.
