Another outstanding cross on that 2nd goal. A powerful header from Pogba, Ronaldo like.

Goal against the run of play. Great cross and header. Anyone else notice that all of Chelsea's attacks are coming down Youngs side and they are double teaming him, plus he's on a yellow and can't tackle at the best of times.

Can understand the odds as Chelsea have been very good at home this season with i think just one defeat. DeGea not starting but expected for a domestic cup game. Higuain,Hazard will likely have joy against Smalling,Young. Due to injuries Lukaku given a start will he prove his worth tonight?

What's with all the Brady craic ? ( Working all evening/night so not up to speed)
Attention seeking tweet stating that an opportunity of a lifetime to win All Ireland was past up because of too many drinking sessions was had.

He got close to 300 replies already. Kevin Cassidy reply probably the best one.

That has the makings of a good final.
I hope it lives up to its billing. Two good enjoyable semi finals today and the two underdogs gave a good account of themselves which was pleasing to see.

Both finals will be decent on Paddys day.. hard to pick a winner, Shamrocks and Crokes will be favs, expect good crowds at this

Current odds has Corofin 5/6 favs.

Would give up the the FA cup to get fourth surely?

Im not sure I would.

People remember trophies rather than fourth spot. So Id take the cup over fourth. Plus, if Ole gets the job ft, maybe a season out of the CL will allow him to build away from the pressures of all that.

I'd bet one of the requirements for Ole to get the job full time is to finish in the top 4 and this same United board didn't take a cup over fourth when they got rid of Van Gaal.

Van Gaal got a very handy draw right through the FA cup that year. But he was sacked because he played the most mindnumbingly boring football over two whole seasons.
I don't think the business men in the board room care much about the style of football. They care about profits and Champions league football is big money even if you make an exit at last 16 stage like United will this season.

The difference between exiting the champions league at last 16 and the amount received for reaching the final or winning the competition is also huge.

And a huge difference in the amount of money received for a last 16 place in the champions league than a FA Cup run.

Galway had to go down the "bore" route as the other style of play had got them nowhere for years and they had become a established Div 2 team that couldn't win Connacht.   Kerry and Dublin have the best set of forwards in country and that includes subs forwards to bring on.
Are Galway best forwards Burke,Walsh,Comer and(Daly) really better than Mayo's best the O'Connor brothers (btw, one plays midfield),Moran?
[/b][/u]

Unfortunately yes is the answer

Daly due to injury hasn't become a established Galway senior forward yet. Diarmuid O'Connor is only given a trial run in midfield at the moment, Mayo's best forwards in the last few years was those three players in the terms of scoring and creating.

I though OGS look terrified on Tuesday night before the game. There was a look of the inevitable on his face. Thought Utd did well in the 1st half and thought they looked scared in the 2nd. Not sure how this will effect things going into the future. Still think they will do ok in the Premier League and should finish in the top 4. The Chelsea FA Cup game is anybody's guess. It will depend on which Chelsea team turns up. I expect Utd to have a right go at home to Liverpool. That will have a Cup final feel! In a months time on the 16th March after Man U have played Chelsea, PSG, Liverpool, Arsenal and Man City. One can make up their mind as to where Utd are.

Injuries could totally derail where United are and where they want to be. At the moment United's replacements only weaken the team. Mata no longer has the legs and playing on the wing only exposes Young more. Sanchez,Lukaku are offering nothing and Ole would be better off giving Chong and Mason Greenwood a run out. The board refusing to buy anyone in the latest transfer window could prove to be another error as injuries was always sure to happen.

RIP Eric Harrison. I see in the last few years of his life he had dementia, my late dad had that also so i know full well what the Harrison family would have went through there.

Dublin have currently won 26 games in a row . The most that Kerry group managed was 19.

When Dublin pick up Sam this year they will be probably have won 34 games in a row. The equivalent of 8 AIs for Kerry in the 70s/80s.

They currently have only lost 2 games in 36 matches. That is the greatest legacy of all time.
For evolving squad instead of a single team.

Kerry's title of the greatest team ever was achieved with mostly the same starting team and few subs. Dublin are evolving squad, not a team so it will be less of achievement when they win 5 in a row as expected this summer but as seen in the NFL so far the year, the likes of S Cluxton; P McMahon, C O'Sullivan are hugely important players and they won't be easily replaced in the years to come.

As for the current Kerry team, they will do well to reach the All Ireland semi final as regardless of their good league form they are still in transition and i wouldn't be surprised if they make an exit at the quarter final stage again.

Will it though?  The standard of athleticism and fitness today is far above and beyond that era. The systems at play and coaching and planning arguably also far ahead of then.  Not disagreeing just putting it out there for debate.
I get what you say about the same team members etc

Those old to remember that Kerry team know how great they were and imagine how better they would have been if they were exposed to the fitness and preparation of today.
