After that match yesterday it got me thinking, are we there or thereabouts or do we still have a bit to go? What I'd give for a Sean oshea as every free seemed to comfortably sail over the bar and a towering midfielder with him

If we had Sean O'Shea, Harte would suck all the confidence and skill right out of him. He stick him in at half back, watch him play well, then drop him for some random boy from Dregish to make his debut in an Ulster Final marking a Conor McManus or a Ryan McHugh. That's the Harte way.

Heard why Stephen O'Neill left the panel. Wasn't impressed with the favouritism shown to a particular Errigal player.

As Pat Spillane said, there are 2 types of people - people who dont know, and there are people who dont know what they dont know - you are the latter my friend.
Also dont know how reliable that source would be.

Shows how much you know when you attribute that quote to Pat Spillane and you misquoted it!

I think the sending off was a huge factor. Kerry were 5 points down at that stage coming into HT I think. Was it 7 points we were down at HT last year?

I would have seen Dublin winning that out comfortably otherwise. Cooper generally gets away with that and while it as probably a red card by the rule book, it was pretty harsh in what is generally let go and what else was let go in that game.

Mark Bradley gave Cian O'Sullivan the run around early on last year and Gavin whisked him off fairly quickly and Dublin got on top of him. This year Gavin didn't take Cooper off or move him on to someone else and it very nearly cost Dublin.

They were comfortable up to the goal and then had a 10 minute spell where there was a bit of panic stations. They dominated the ball after Kerry took the lead and that  with 14 men. I see them winning by 5-6 points in the replay. Their backline is creaking though.

Possibly but it was a blessing in disguise either way as he was well off it and Bradley was getting a lot of joy in the early part. I don't think Kerry did anything unbelievable by making a game of it against a 14 man Dublin last year, we actually reduced the gap by 8 points to 4 from when John Small was sent off last year and that was just before the game went into injury time. I'd say we'd have given them a rattle too if we had to play a 14 man Dublin side for over half the game.

It's the first time in a big game under Gavin that any team has had the chance to play against Dublin with an extra man for a significant portion of the game. It's the type of opportunity you simply cannot let pass by. Donal Vaughan shot Mayo in the foot when he got sent off in 2016 as I'm fully convinced Mayo would have beaten them with the extra man. Kerry weren't good enough to.

I think Cian O'Sullivan carried his injury into the game - Mark Bradley got early joy against him but I think Dublin also resolved the problem relatively early in the game.

Just wondering if Mark Bradley makes a good partner up front for Cathal Mc Shane up front in the future - shame they didn't get a chance to try it out this year.
