Its actually hilarious that the Dubs can't  see that the money makes no difference.

They actually fully believe it's the magical fairy volunteers.  ;D ;D

If you were to give €10m to Meath co board tomorrow there is no guarantee they would be successful. First thing a county should do if they are serious about football/hurling in the county is put together a long term plan for underage set up in the county and then look for funding. Offaly board had a plan for hurling in the county prepared for them, but they never actually bothered implementing it. Instead they sack the senior team manager in a desperate and ultimately failed short term/quick fix attempt to avoid relegation. Why should they for example receive funding.

Mayo put together a new underage coaching plan a couple of years ago and have started implementing it. Strange how we haven't got a huge increase in funding for it though?

Well done Dublin, another historical milestone, a great performance in terrible conditions and did it with honour abnd pride in the competion. Meath good in parts except for their shooting and final third play. good tackling and hard hits was done well for the majority of the game. I never get tired of winning and beating our closest neighbour and rival. Hoping for 10 in a row next year.

Stephen Cluxton is third in the most Leinster wins with 15, just behind Meath.

Great attendance of just under 50K. Majority Dublin fans.  I would say 80/20. A shockingly bad day with heavey rain.

Biggest concern is the injury to James McCarthy, irreplaceable.

Meath were doing quite well before he went off, so not exactly irreplaceable.

Good to get over the line yesterday, Pairc Esler is a great place to watch a game. Horan has got a lot of stick the last month, a lot of it deserved, but the 5 changes he made to the team were justified as they all did well.

McDonagh was very good in the 1st half and it's great to see him back. Loftus did well too. None of the frees were straight forward as they all seemed to be on his wrong side. Aidan was solid in midfield though maybe not as spectacular as recent games. Keegan had a brilliant 2nd half and we finally got a bit of a handle on Mooney when Lee switched on to him.

Paddy Durcan made a few good interceptions and breaks upfield but he had a mare with the shooting. Think he had 4 shots - 2 wides, 1 blocked down and 1 dropped short. Overall our shooting return was miles better however. I thought Higgins was all over the place at times and he was probably marking the weakest member of the Down full forward line. Doherty and McLoughlin weren't great either. I'd consider dropping Doherty and moving McLoughlin back to to the half forward line.

Caolan Mooney was class for Down. He's as quick as any player I've seen the last few years. A brilliant finish for his goal as well. Reminded me of Con O'Callaghan's against us in the 2017 final.

We've a lot to work on so hopefully a favourable draw on Monday morning.

Chris Barrett, Brendan Harrison, Keith Higgins
Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle, Patrick Durcan
Aidan O'Shea, Diarmuid O'Connor,
Fionn McDonagh Jason Doherty, Conor Loftus,

Four changes to their starting 15 from the team that started against Roscommon. Hennelly,Ruane,Boland and Regan out and in are Clarke,Boyle,Moran and McDonagh,

Plunkett out and Loftus in as well. Thought Regan and Boland did quite well the last day but i suppose a lot can change in 4 weeks.

I thought Rory Gallagher was really good on the live show. They should have him on more regularly and hopefully he'll stop managing intercounty teams!

Strange that Kevin Walsh took off Cooke as well and replaced him with a much smaller guy in Kelly. No surprise Roscommon got a bit of a hold around midfield towards the end of the game.

Not on TV.

Another rumour doing the rounds this morning unfortunately...  :-[

Sligo are effectively already qualified for the semi final regardless of what happens next week in their game as Mayo can’t improve on 4 points and Sligo have the edge in that head to head.
Realistically the chance of Galway not beating Leitrim is slim.

So basically Sligo have little incentive to go and beat Roscommon next week, which is bad news for us unfortunately.

Wouldn't fancy going up to Derry for our qualifier. Think them and the winner of Monaghan/Fermanagh are the ones to avoid.

Football semi-finals in Munster had 3128 at Cork/Limerick and 5037 at Clare/Kerry.

Having both clashing with the champions league final wasn't the wisest decision.

Armagh v Cavan sounds like a classic on the radio as well!

The football championship has been far better than the hurling so far. The football leagues were also miles better than the hurling equivalent. The difference is the hurling pundits will never criticise their sport. Unlike the football pundits who keep pushing the 2nd/3rd tier agenda which makes the general public think there is nothing positive going on in the sport.

Did anyone else see the double hop before Andy Moran took a pass and kicked a point? 
Seeing as were being pedantic
did any one see the rossies acting like scumbags just before half time .
though of course Gough not a clue what to do booked 2  from either side , at least 3 ros players should have walked

Scumbags 🤣🤣🤣

When has a Ros player being sent off for a disgusting elbow into the face or a punch into the balls?

Fintan cregg on Diarmuid O'Connor in the 2017 quarter final?
