Still not convinced by Donegal. Their only win of note so far has been against an off-colour Tyrone. Would not be surprised to see Kerry and Mayo qualify from this group.

Yeah I would agree. Still a lot to prove yet though heading the right direction.

So only 5 teams made it back to the "Super 8" from last year - Dublin, Kerry, Tyrone, Donegal and Roscommon. Is there maybe only really a super 5? Or super 4 + Roscommon?

This was tweeted yesterday. The only counties who has reached the last 8 for the last 3 years in a row are Dublin,Tyrone,Kerry and Roscommon.

The Rossies in fairness have been in tough groups. Tyrone and Dublin are the 2 best sides in the country, plus Mayo were the second best side in 2017.

It's a bit insulting to Dublin to put them on the same level as Tyrone.

What is the story with drawing in super 8s, since it seems to change all the time! Is it ten mins then 5 mins each half if still drawn then penalties?? Or is a Draw a draw? Point a piece

Welcome to the big time.

Point a piece for a draw in All-Ireland Quarter Final Series.

One point for a draw, Kerry and Monaghan drew last year

From the GAA website 2019 Senior Football Championship Explainer:

In the event of teams finishing on equal points in a Quarter Final Group, the tie shall be decided by the following means and in the order specified:

(i) Where two Teams only are involved - the outcome of the meeting of the two Teams in the Group

(ii) Score difference - subtracting the total Scores against from the total Scores for

(iii) Highest Total Score For

(iv) Highest Total Goals For

(v) A Play-off

After round 1:

All-Ireland Quarter-Finals - Group 1

Team P W D L +/- Pts.
1 Kerry 1 1 0 0 10 2
2 Donegal 1 1 0 0 9 2
3 Meath 1 0 0 1 -9 0
4 Mayo 1 0 0 1 -10 0

All-Ireland Quarter-Finals - Group 2

Team P W D L +/- Pts.
1 Dublin 1 1 0 0 13 2
2 Tyrone 1 1 0 0 4 2
3 Roscommon 1 0 0 1 -4 0
4 Cork 1 0 0 1 -13 0

It looks like group 2 will be all but wrapped up after next weekend with both Dublin (1/50) and Tyrone (2/7) expected to win leaving only the matter of 1st/2nd to be decided in Omagh on the final day (Dublin 3/10 favourites).

In group 1, the GAA will be hoping that either Kerry & Mayo win or Donegal & Meath so that there'll be something to play for on the last day. Any other results will mean it comes down to scoring difference and Mayo & Meath are already well behind on that.

Not looking like a great 2nd year for the super 8s

Roscommon are unlucky having the best team and probably the second best team in the group.

It'd be great craic if there was tankings galore next year. Afterall it was only brought in for three years right?

Were the "Super 8s" introduced on a 2-3 year trial basis or is it a permanent feature ?

If favourites Dublin and Tyrone win next weekend it would obviously make Cork-Roscommon in Round 3 meaningless.
A dead rubber match, should it arise, surely serves no purpose.
Players won't want to go through the motions and supporters should not have their loyalty tested given the costs associated with supporting your county.

Three-year trial period.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Don't know that there's any point in setting up a thread for the Donegal-Kerry game this weekend ....

Main news from Donegal is that Eoin Ban Gallagher is out for the rest of the year with a broken ankle sustained in training. Bitterly disappointing for a young man that was showing all-star form, as well as being very damaging to our prospects in the Super-8's.

Similar to last year when the loss of Paddy McBrearty made our Super-8 challenge even bigger.

I don't think he's as big a loss as Paddy was though.

McBrearty is irreplaceable. At least we have other men, albeit much less accomplished, who can come in and use speed and ball-carrying ability to try to break lines. This is a big chance for the likes of O'Baoill or Eoin McHugh.

Can't wait for this game. We'll know where we stand after this!
