Certainly we would like to win the League but Monaghan were very good and even Fento was overwhelmed and if we don't make the final it could mean that we don't win Sam
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.

Question to the dubliners on this thread

Do you realise the anger and frustration among rest of the gaa public over the financial doping?

Do you realise a big proportion of the gaa public have little or no respect for Dublinís achievements over the last few years due to the financial doping?

I think Dublin are in serious denial about it all.

f**k me, the patronising of a very average Cork team is unbearable. Somehow when Kildare & Meath get hammered by Dublin, the Leinster Championship is a joke. They obliterated Cork in the quarter finals of the All Ireland and you have people literally saying Cork have showed the way to beat Dublin. 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. They will go to Omagh and rest 5/6 key players while getting game time into their injured parties ready for 2 more games in neutral venues.

Did many dubs travel to omagh? I suppose they luas doesn't go that far  ;)

Have to give it to the Dubs, they were there on mass. Very good turnout.

Although less keen on the woman beside me making plans for her hairstyle and taking selfies "for the final".

Jim Gavin is sans pareil


https://m.independent.ie/sport/gaelic-games/gaelic-football/he-was-here-in-spirit-philly-mcmahon-pictured-in-tears-as-he-pays-breaking-bad-inspired-tribute-to-father-37275086.html

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.

      'My admiration has gone up for them ten-fold' - Jim Gavin shows respect for Tyrone 
      'These are classy guys' - Joe Brolly reveals text he received from Dublin's James McCarthy ahead of All Ireland final  
"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.
