Title: The Patronising Dublin Fan Thread
Post by: Sidney on August 09, 2014, 11:19:27 PM
I thought Monaghan got some lovely scores today. Conor McManus's point that made it 0-3 apiece was as good a score as you'll see all year. Credit to Monaghan's defence who kept it really tight for the first 20 minutes. And in fairness to them, they never gave up in the second half despite the scoreline. Drew Wylie was a picture of determination all through, a warrior, and any team would love to have a player like that.

So I'd just like to say, all credit to the Monaghan team and their supporters, thanks for the game, and best of luck for next year.

Forgot to say also that I really enjoyed the first match between Donegal and Armagh. Both teams fought like lions, and it was good to see a genuine contest. We'd be very respectful of Donegal here in the capital, and certainly won't be taking anything for granted for the semi-final - Donegal could well be the first team this year to get within a single figure margin against Dublin.

Sidney, what do you make of the Leinster Championship?
It has a great tradition and I'd never denigrate it. People might say that it has become too easy for Dublin but that's certainly not how we'd see it. Each title is as meaningful to us as the last. You never get tired of the feeling. Kildare have made great strides in recent years and of course every match against Meath is always 50-50, that's why their our greatest rivals*.

I've great regard for the work being done in places like Wexford, Westmeath, Laois, Louth and Longford, too. Wexford reached an All-Ireland semi-final in the not too distant past while Westmeath, Laois and Louth won long-awaited Leinster titles, so arguably Leinster football is as strong as it's ever been. There are good footballers in every county, not just Dublin.

Sad to see what's happening in Offaly though. Gaelic football needs a strong Offaly, most of all so we can sing "Fourteen On and Fourteen Off" at their supporters**.

*We always have the height of respect for them, however.

**In a patronising manner.

You could certainly argue that, but I suppose if you ask provincial teams themselves, they'll always say they love playing in Croke Park, and we're always glad to be their gracious hosts. Perhaps the best way of looking at it is that Croke Park brings out the best in visiting teams, and that way everybody wins.

And it's always nice for the supporters of those teams to get a day out up in the capital - otherwise they'd just have December the 8th as their sole day out in Dublin for the year.

I was listening to Padraic Lodge's radio commentary of the match yesterday, and he referred to "the rain falling quite heavily on the patrons of Hill 16".

I liked that reference, and would appeal to everybody to refer to Dublin supporter as "patrons" from now, much like happens at Augusta during the US Masters.

Got an eye opener yesterday near the end of the game. Was watching in an Irish bar here in Seville with 4 other Dub mates. The 3 others were watching Man U.
For most of the game there was the usual friendly banter with me supporting Monaghan just for the Craic.
I kept coming out with the sure it's only the league and this tight game is exactly what yus needed.
But in the last five or ten minutes my mates showed exactly how important it was to them as they bared their teeth.
Having gone to quite a lot of Dubs games in the last few years as I live their with Dub kids, they really don't take well to teams putting it up to them.
What would you expect some may ask but I suppose this is what happens when you are used to playing in your own back garden every day with your own ball and used to teams rolling over after 20 mins and not laying a hand on you.
Kerry are the same. They used to love Tyrone and Donegal until we stopped paying homage and startef giving them a game.

Anyway that game will give Monaghan great hope now for the year ahead and will not fear the Dubs later in the year.

Dublins biggest hurdle towards winning the AI is picking their best xv.
After that the next problem is leinster lacking real competition for Dublin.
Lastly should Dublin experience a tight game I still think they are lacking a bit on the sideline - Gavin is an honest individual but not in the same league as gilroy when it comes to tactics. Though Deegan greatly assists here.
All ireland should be a walk in the park for Dublin with maybe only Kerry able to give them a game.

Hopefully Mayo will at least give us a bit of match practice ahead of the first round of the championship proper against Kerry. I think it's unlikely we'll meet Donegal this year, but we'll wish them well in that unlikely event. Donegal people have lovely accents (apart from Martin McHugh), nicer than ours, but I guess you can't have everything.

Yes
And Dublin fecked up badly.
I would lay this failure on the management ( gilroy would have won it with that squad easily as his team weren't quite as talented) but I would expect management have learned a lot from last year and the young lads also!
Ok it's not quite a walk in the park but Kerry are the only realistic rivals with tyrone donegal mayo and especially cork if any of them hit form possibly eclipsing Dublin on their best day!

But irish people don't do well as favourites!

All ireland should be a walk in the park for Dublin with maybe only Kerry able to give them a game.

Blah de Blah! Will be a different story when they get out of Leinster and face teams who are looking to peak for their game against them. Don't get me wrong they are really good. But they can have a job done on them!
Yes but it would be a hit and run job on a given day. That Dublin squad have talent in depth !
This Dublin squad is deep, make no mistake. Could you imagine debating the merits of Rene Descartes with any other inter-county panel? I don't think so.

Longford doing a lot better against Dublin than the supposedly "top four" Monaghan team did in the All-Ireland quarterfinal last year. It just goes to show that Leinster has excellent strength in depth, and that Jim Gavin was right to take this game deadly seriously and not look beyond today. And I'd imagine he's still not looking beyond today. A lot of football to be played in this match yet.

there's maybe 4 teams in the country who wouldn't currently get a tanking by Dublin @ HQ. Play defensive and get ripped in, real blood and thunder stuff.  Get the speedy boys on the ball during the counter. Hand out new motors with fuel cards  players, it'll add an extra 4% to their game

Dublin were 1/200 against the Longford, so looked at that way the bookies are saying that Kildare's chances of beating Dublin are 6 times what Longford's chances were.

Currently Armagh are 1/50 against Wicklow while Tyrone are 1/25 against Limerick

Mick was instrumental in our Leinster victory in 03! We currently only have old fellas and young lads mostly. It'd be much easier with 200,000 people. I'd say we'd have won at least one more Leinster title this century at least!

It's no surprise to see a West Dub robbing a line from their Eastern neighbours! Yes 10 years since we gave you a whipping and 12 years since we got the glorious Leinster championship victory, that's not the last time the white shorts had a brown stain on them though. It's a regular occurance for the Lilys.

West Dub!  ;D

The beautiful irony being that Leo Turley himself is now exiled in Leixlip.

He's there to teach you how to kick points when the pressure comes on. No better man.

Certainly worked the oracle in the second half on Saturday.

It did but it wont work against the Dubs, maybe if you had robbed Donie on us when Geezer was there you might have a chance. Or maybe Seanie will make a comeback. :D

We'll take Billy Sheehan if he's going?

He can bring his megaphone to drown out the Hill.

Even Billy would be able to hit points under pressure better than a Kildare man and that's saying something. Kildare need some sort of new recruitment drive anyway, the long stretch since their last Leinster title is getting close to 20 years!!!! And them with over 200,000 people. :D

That's a lot of mouths to feed though and the Dubs have all the money, they might let us do a bucket collection outside their home ground Sunday week though. Pity and all that.

We already gave you the empty tins for your last big fundraiser and gave you the cheque signer from Croke Park, not to mention the All Ireland Feile winning manager from last year, we can't do much more for ye.

Well the scoreboard may have implied that things were one-sided today, but we in Dublin know that wasn't the case at all.

The game turned on a crucial decision early in the second half. Kildare had been dominating Dublin since the restart, but a crucial decision when Kildare should have had a goal when the referee failed to play advantage effectively decided the outcome. Had that been given, as it should have been, it would have been anybody's match.

Certainly we in Dublin know that a repeat of today's performance won't be good enough to win the final against Westmeath.

What we've seen this weekend shows that Leinster football as a whole is in great shape. Westmeath's historic win over Meath will surely go down as the match of the year, and Wexford brushing aside Down and Louth brushing aside Leitrim show that there is excellent strength in depth in the province.

Kildare's thumping victory over Dublin in the minor match today also shows that our neighbours are well placed to capitalise on any downturn in our performance in the near future, and that notions of continued sustained Dublin dominance in Leinster into the future are laughable.

We go into the final with a puncher's chance, but nobody in the capital is under any illusions about the size of the task. We need to improve to have a chance of winning.

We're on our last legs and just hoping to wring the last drop out of this current team, because we know it won't last.

All of Dublin is fully focussed on the task at hand. That goes for both the team and INTERNET blowhards like INDIANA. It's a Leinster final which could go either way. Westmeath will be a very tough nut to crack. Nobody should be under any illusions that today will be easy. It won't. Dublin need to up their performance big time from the last day. If the team can do that, they have a chance.

Dublin and Dublin supporters would always be very mindful that we're representing Leinster. It's a victory for the whole province really, and we're delighted that Leinsterians from Carnsore Pont to the Cooley Peninsula to the left bank of the Shannon can bask in the reflected glory of our success.

Even Kerry, as part of the Leinster hurling championship, can now rejoice in the success of their province.

But nothing is won yet and we'll also be mindful that Mayo will go into the final as favourites - a repeat of Dublin's performance yesterday will mean no back to back All-Ireland.

Yes indeed this is the best prepared team ever and so it should be but let’s compare like with like.
For one thing, Dublin, as of Census ‘16 has almost 9 times the population of Kerry and it logically follows that they can avail of sponsorship arrangements that other counties can only dream about.
Dublin has no worries about players having to travel long distances to get to their training grounds. They also get to play their championship (almost without exception) on their home pitch.
Sure, they are a very talented bunch but don't forget that the backbone of that team played against Meath in 2010 and were annihilated. The following year they won the All Ireland. In the interim, Dublin launched their ‘Blue Wave’ initiative and won the AI the very next year.
Go figure…
Was it the sheer natural talent of the players that makes them the best prepared team in the land or did the money spent on resources and coaching etc. play a part?
I wouldn't say they are great ambassadors for Leinster football either as that would imply that they were primus inter pares and that there was/is meaningful opposition within the province.
But there isn’t and with 11 Leinster titles out of the last 12, they inhabit a different planet to the others.
I don’t blame JIm Gavin or his players for the overwhelming advantages ion playing numbers and resources over every other team in the land. That’s demographics at work and they have no say over that.
Trouble is that this particular cuckoo is getting way too big for its nest and that will bring about the same scenario that you see in the Scottish Premiership to the detriment of the GAA as a whole.

Kevin Heffernan said he would always have a good big lad before a good little lad. Dublin have always gone with bigger athletic players - in the past some might not have been technically great. Exceptions to the big rule would be maybe Mick Deegan, Anto McCaul and Jim Gavin himself.
 This bunch is athletic and for the most part very good technically as well and a few are very good indeed. A couple like McAuley and O Gara are not Ferraris but are strong and very effective.
 I suspect that there are lots of smaller, very skilful players in Dublin clubs. But you would be mad not to go with the bigger lads when they can play as well.
 Of course likes of Leitrim cannot hope to develop a squad like that, neither can the vast majority of counties. Other counties can do better. Sport science is a pretty much open book. There are club plodders training for marathons that have the same programmes that elite athletes have. You can throw any amount of resources at a plodder and they will still be a plodder - even if an improved plodder.
 This Dublin team has lads that are brilliant footballers but many have an exceptional basic athleticism. You can develop that but the natural base has to be there.
 Looking at the Olympics you would have to wonder about Kilkenny and decathlon maybe. McCarty just covers the ground effortlessly. McCaffrey too.

I'm expecting a really tough game from Carlow this evening.

Jonny Cooper rightly said it would be a tough challenge last October, and he should know what he's talking about.

People wrongly criticise the Leinster championship when they say it's a cakewalk - everybody in Dublin knows that's not the case at all.

Another Leinster title this year is the primary aim and tonight is the first step towards achieving that.

As Jim Gavin says, we're passionate about east coast football.

Carlow had a tremendous win over a very good Wexford team in the preliminary round, playing very direct attacking football.

It'll be a hostile atmosphere in Portlaoise, Carlow have a massive support, the Sky Sports cameras are there and all the ingredients are in place for a shock.

It's up to Dublin now to tear up the script and not let that shock happen.

Carlow were difficult opponents, as predicted, and Dublin were put to the pins of their collective collars to shake them off.

Those in the cheap seats who ridiculed Jonny Cooper last October now have egg on their faces.

Jonny knew.

Carlow will do well in the qualifiers.

Westmeath or Offaly up next and whoever comes through that will also provide a huge challenge.

But Dublin supporters will think about that on Monday.

At this stage all Dublin supporters would be happy to just avoid relegation, truth be told.

That defeat in the O'Byrne Cup final has, as I predicted, destroyed the myth of invincibility surrounding this Dublin team.

With Mayo flying at the moment, we'll find it very difficult to avoid being in the drop zone after the next roound of fixtures.

Unlike Mayo, Tyrone, Roscommon and Cavan, this Dublin team have no experience of being involved in a relegation battle - and that's what makes the prospect very dangerous.

If the players start thinking they're too good to go down, they could end up doing just that.

If Mayo win at Croke Park on February 23rd, it may be time to say goodbye to Jim Gavin and hello to Sam Allardyce.

The game had no intensity and apart from Jack Mc was played at the pace on O'Byrne Cup game in January. They will do the same next week in their neutral game in Croke Park.

I wouldn't say we were cruising. As we've experienced in the last few years, no surprise there from Tyrone. My admiration has gone up for them ten-fold and to a man they stayed on the pitch at the end.

"At 0-1 to 0-5, they had the momentum. But our guys don't blink, which is a great characteristic.

"Putting Colm Cavanagh to full-forward showed their intent. Our guys are extremly fatigued from a fantastic battle."
After a summer that drew plenty of negative attention, Gavin feels that today's final was a credit to both teams.
"It's and All-Ireland final, there's a lot on the line. I think the GAA should be very proud of both counties, the spectacle that they put on today," added Gavin.

"We were probably just ahead of them in efficiency terms. The collective ethos in that Dublin team is just a pleasure to watch.
"The players who didn't get game time must be disappointed, but they don't show it.

You're never safe in a game, not against quality opposition. They can get a goal and the whole dynamic of the game can change. We pride ourselves on our technical skills coming out in the heat of battle.
"That's a very young Tyrone team, they'll certainly be back."

With four All Ireland titles to his name now, Gavin admits that he is just living in the moment and not giving any thought to what lies ahead.
"I didn't envisage anything when I took over Dublin. I just envisaged trying to do my very best for them. We all just volunteer our time, it's a choice that we make. There are no guarantees." added the Dublin boss.
"When it's all over, we'll look back. But we're just living in the moment now.

A lot of joy among Dublin supporters tonight but the overwhelming emotion is one of relief

We hadn't knocked Meath out of the championship since 1995, so it's a serious monkey off the back

Dublin-Meath knockout Leinster finals have always been sickeningly tense affairs and tonight was no different

It might be a cold Saturday night in November but inside the hearts of Dublin supporters, it's as warm and sunny as that glorious Sunday afternoon in July 1995 when we last knocked Meath out

All we need now is Blur and Oasis to go head to head for the Christmas number one
