GAA Discussion / Re: Meath vs Dublin - 26/06/16
« on: Today at 12:11:06 AM »
We went man to man in 2014 and got completely destroyed, while in the two preceding years we were more defensive and were much closer. So we had to come up with something different that drew from those experiences.

The game plan to attack which worked in the first half fell apart in the second half because Dublin made the necessary changes and our players ran out of steam, that's what happens. Just as our tackling got sloppy as well and Rock punished us.

Honestly Indiana, I just wish it was something as simple our lads just needing to "have a go" at beating the Dubs.

Which teams can you honestly say have a realistic chance of beating Dublin this year?

Ah Indiana. We're under no illusions what-so-ever about where we are. The lads didn't just give up, they just tired out against a team with unprecedented fitness and talent. They were bursting a gut out there.

Sure there are one or two on the team who aren't up to the expected level but we'll see how it goes. My judgment is that we have a decent enough team that can go a few rounds in the qualifiers. We'll see if I'm right about that in the coming weeks.

How many full time coaches do Italy have though?

Dubs might well decline in time but until that happens its a mountain the rest of Leinster just can't climb.

I reckon this Meath team could have a good run the championship but if they come up against the Dubs again it'll be the same result.

Does the church believe in anything it used to?

England look like a team about to throttle each other. Roy looks a bit scared by what he sees. Maybe they've had a big row in the dressing room over Brexit

Using 2014 as a benchmark I was actually reasonably pleased with our performance and I do think we will beat Derry and a few other teams this year depending on the draw.

I think I'll follow the hurlers for a few years. There's just no point to football at the moment. That wasn't even mildly entertaining.

Maybe our lads need to start taking steroids.

The gulf in talent and fitness is still as big as 2014.

I'm really looking forward to when we are as good as Dublin but that's a good few years away still.

Great workrate and tackling by our lads but final touches and decisions are letting us down

That's alright so far but we haven't the danger up front to really claw it back. Backline not looking solid enough. Mickey Burke probably lucky to be still on the field, Graham Reilly lucky too. Wallace needs to think before he shoots.

Hard work and little talent.

We did as well as can be expected for a not-so-serious soccer nation (as in serious players of the game rather than serious bar-stool spectators).

Enjoy the booze and a sing-song. We as a nation and fans probably enjoy the thing more than the eventual winners do.
