Rock didnít look too happy today either

Wasn't great body language from Rock sitting in the stands after being subbed. Probably reading too much into it however.

Any word on O'Hora's injury, did he end up fracturing a rib?Did John Small pick up another injury in the second half today? I missed what happened.

More than likely I suppose ya, but then again when after such a long period of dominance you bring in a new manager and things arenít going as well they used to these issues crop up

The word I was hearing in croke park the last day is that it was a rib injury so heíd probably be strapped up and back in time for Dublin

I was wondering that myself, couldíve just been a case of giving Murchan minutes but he didnít look right coming off

Really don't want to go through another Mayo match, its too stressful.

Mayo have a great shout imo, but nothing focuses the Dubs more than the sight of the Mayo Jersey.

Dublin have a lot of work to do over the next 2 weeks to get to Mayo's level  of intensity they bring to games.

It was only one half of a game in reality.

It was a completely different era in terms of Mayo teams consistentcy, conditioning etc, but it was an amazing day!
The drama and the noise were unbelievable.
Some of the Rossies who were there for their minor team even lost the run of themselves and were roaring on Mayo  ;D

Ah it was a great day for the west!
Normal hostilities resumed thereafter.

The Dubs project had already started by then.
It was only a few years later that total Leinster dominance was a reality.

5 years later 2011 was not only Dublins first All-Ireland since 1995 but also their first final appearance.

I expect Mayo to finally end their Dublin hoodoo and win the semi final, however I then expect them to be be battered in the final by Kerry in yet another All Ireland defeat.

Despite this I think Dublin would give Kerry a better game in the final. Kerry wouldn't fear Mayo or Dublin, but they'd be alot more wary of the dubs

Anyone would think the dubs were finished reading this. They donít look the perfectly slick team that make zero mistakes any more but they probably make way less than the rest. I would love to see Mayo beat them but Mayo have a lot of very new players and this game is a massive step up for them. Itís still a massive ask for them.

That said, Kerry donít quite have the mean streak over Mayo that they had 10 years ago, I wouldnít expect any of those three teams to fear anyone
