Title: Dublin over the next few years
Post by: seafoid on November 07, 2019, 02:56:14 PM
Are they likely to win 6-7-8 and draw more and more criticism ?
Or would they throw 2020 and start the clock again in 2021 with no hassle ?

Should win at least the next two as the competition/challengers probably still won't be as strong as the should be. Jim Gavin might decide to step away then and they might be caught on the hop in 2022.

Only 15 teams can challenge them now, they might reduce this further and just let them and the number two contenders Tyrone fight it out.

From Paddy Power:

To win 6 AISF championships in a row in 2020 4/7
To win 7 AISF championships in a row in 2021 6/4
To win 8 AISF championships in a row in 2022 11/4
To win 9 AISF championships in a row in 2023 9/2
To win 10 AISF championships in a row in 2024 15/2

Donegal are 9/1 to win it next year, Tyrone 16/1 and Mayo 18/1 all of which PP think is less likely than Dublin winning ten in a row.

I honestly thought Gavin and Cluxton would go after the 5.

Doesn't look like it.

I also thought there might a few taking a year out. I see so many people in their mid 20s taking 6 / 9 / 12 months out to go travelling, so if a Dub mid-20s lad (e.g. Fenton) is going to do that, what better time than after the 5? No sign of that yet.

Cluxton is a freak of nature and that has rubbed off on others.
Gavin was immediately talking about really looking forward to next year and the lads who are pushing to be involved and seeing how they go in the O'Byrne Cup and early stages of the league.
I've heard some of the younger players saying they didn't do 5 in a row.
The drive and commitment of the panel does not seem to be waning.

But Kerry have just about caught up and arguably have more improving to do. So it's not a one horse race. Whether it's a 2 horse race is another question. Good to hear Joyce at least having high ambitions.

Yes looking at those odds its a one horse race for the foreseeable future.

Being a Dublin fan, i think we can win it next year, however i dont think we will win 7 in a row and it will open up a bit. Nobody dominates forever, watching the Hurling in the 00s with Kilkenny so far ahead of the pack i probably felt the same as the begrudgers on here feel but look a the hurling now, wide open, tight games, different winners every year.

If you hear Cluxton in the media last week, he doesnt sound like he will be around for much longer, and few will join him, already two high profile players gone. Cracks will appear.

On the other hand, you will see Ciaran Archer join up with the panel(Hopefully), he has the potential to surpass the current talented crop of forwards and be one of the greatest, but must learn his trade.

It wouldnít. Club championships are parish-based and have always had serial champions. The GAA is heading into unknown territory with Dublin. How will punters and TV audiences  react?

You can add in that Kilkenny  during those years were so strapped for money that  AI winning players had to fundraise to pay for their overseas holiday.

I laugh when I hear lines like Brogan and O'Gara retiring and cracks beginning to appear. Brogan and O'Gara have been hanging on the last 3 years. Connolly has made as much (or as little) of a contribution over the same period. Their contribution on match days has been minimal. They probably brought experience to training. Players have been falling away almost unnoticed from the Dublin panel since the breakthrough in 2011.

I sípose it  takes all types. You should be gearing upp for Sanat now and stuff the oulí crap about the Dubs training on shitty grounds, worse than youíd find in most other counties.
Some months ago, in case you forgot, there was an unholy row when the county board threw a hissy fit when they removed some specialist training equipment from the sports centre in Adamstown.
They bought and installed the equipment but when they werenít allowed access to this gear at times that suited them, they removed it all in a big huff.
Now, where did they relocate this?
Hardly in Innisfails, did they??
Every county needs pitches for outdoor work and itís no big deal that the Dubs train in Innisfails but thatís not even half the story.

Dieticians and the rest of the backroom backups donít put on wellies and trot out the Malahide road, do they, not to mention physiotherapists and probably  psychiatrists also.

Indeed we are!! I love a good row once in a while as there is no better way to pass the time. I have been known to start a row when things are too quiet on the board for my liking!
I cannot feel too bad/mad about the Dubs either. I spent my entire working here and I was heavily involved with underage/schoolboy football for most of the time.
I don't really begrudge Dublin anything either as every county in the land would be doing  the very same if only they had the chance. As you say, the good times won't last forever but that's because  there is very little chance of any other county being able to put up a sustained challenge, Maybe one of the others will catch Dublin on the hop but to do a two or a three in a row is the stuff of fantasy.
All the mickey mousing about with supper eights and two-tier championships is never going to prevent the inevitable.....ARMAGEDDON is coming! ;D
PS. I know Fingallians very well and Campions even better.

Kerry are 7/2 for next year. The Dublin CB could earn a tidy sum by placing the GAA funding on Kerry and taking it easy for a year.
It looks like a good punt okay but that's down to Dublin having an off day rather than Kerry being the better side. The Dubs' level of aerobic fitness is phenomenal. Kerry had prepared as well as they possibly could for the replay this year but couldn't last the pace in the final quarter. I had wondered why Cooper was dragging Clifford all over the place throughout the game until he was exhausted- he never threatened to score in the closing stages. Indeed the same could be said for the rest of the team.
Same with Mayo in the 2015 replay; they gave as good as they got until the final stages. Probably the heat and humidity played a part in their downfall but that's no to take from Dublin's win. Same as against Kerry this year, none of the Dubs looked out on his feet when the game ended.
To catch Dublin in Croker, an opposition needs to hit it lucky early on as the odds of actually beating them will diminish the longer the game goes on.

Ah, Jaysus, will ya get away up the yard, will ya? ;D
I thought most normal Dub supporters would be still buzziní after the five in a row and saving their energies for number six, instead of trolling half truths on mickey mouse boards like this one.
I sípose it  takes all types. You should be gearing upp for Sanat now and stuff the oulí crap about the Dubs training on shitty grounds, worse than youíd find in most other counties.
Some months ago, in case you forgot, there was an unholy row when the county board threw a hissy fit when they removed some specialist training equipment from the sports centre in Adamstown.
They bought and installed the equipment but when they werenít allowed access to this gear at times that suited them, they removed it all in a big huff.
Now, where did they relocate this?
Hardly in Innisfails, did they??
Every county needs pitches for outdoor work and itís no big deal that the Dubs train in Innisfails but thatís not even half the story. What centre)s) of excellence do they use and where does the barrage of sports specialists work? Dieticians and the rest of the backroom backups donít put on wellies and trot out the Malahide road, do they, not to mention physiotherapists and probably  psychiatrists also.
Itís like saying that the Dubs fundraise for their holidays like everyone else but they donít have to stand out on the pissings of rain shaking plastic buckets at passersby, do they?
Look, make the most of what you have won so far and accept that the good times wonít keep rolling forever and leave the coat-trailing and slagging until ye f**k up the AI series same as the Leinster championship.

A lar come on, we are all friends here, its a genuine offer, il show up their training base, and you can compare it to the multi million Euro facilities around the country. PM me and il send on my mobile. Kinsealy is a nice place, the reopened the old Campions pub there accross from the Graveyard, does a bit of food.

I remember the story, they moved the gear to a new Gym built in Parnell Park (makeshift).

I am enjoying it, its a great time to be a Dublin supporter and i know it wont last forever so will enjoy, i plan to  watch the 9 All Ireland finals played this decade the Dubs were in over the Christmas period. Il skip 2012 and 2014  :D and will throw in the Semi final v Kerry 2013, one of the greatest games ever played.
It's a boring time to be a Dublin supporter. The reaction to the last few all Irelands showed it.
Compare to the reaction when Laois beat the hurlers or Mullinalaghta won Leinster.
Honest wins.   
An rud is annamh is iontach.

With all due respect, its only boring for non Dubs. The celebrations this year were on par with 2011, i was in about 4 or 5 different places on the day and the day after this years AI and it had that 2011 feeling.
