Jim Gavin honours as Dublin manager


6 All-Irelands
7 Leinster titles
5 National Leagues
49 All Stars 
4 Footballers of the Year
Overall Record - Played 107 Won 86 Lost 11 Drew 10
Championship - Played 48 Won 44 Lost 1 Drew 3
League - Played 59 Won 42 Lost 10 Drew 7

The U21 sides he managed to All Ireland titles in 2010 and 2012 had plenty of players who would go on to star in his senior teams. R O Carroll, J Cooper, J McCarthy, D Rock, J McCaffrey, C Kilkenny, P Mannion to name but a few.

Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

And one of those was a Dead Rubber!

Better not say much more or I'll be accused of being divisive and mean spirited!

You have to admit Dublin have a great home record!

They won the majority of their away games in the national league as well. Last year was the 1st time Gavin didn't try to win the national league. Even travelled to Leitrim to play  Roscommon

Iíd predict that in the next 10 years dublin will win at the most 2 all irelandís, possibly even 0 or 1. At that point everyone will recognise Gavin as the greatest manager of all time.

Total devastation here, i said it here before, my biggest fear is the day Jim Gavins leaves the team.

The most important thing to remember, its not all about the winning, its the legacy and culture he leaves in place and the men he made. All future players will aspire to this era as the template.

The team still has the players to win a couple of more, however some slight cracks are appearing and who will also follow him in retirement.

My choice for successor is Cluxton.

Yeah but wasn't willing to shoot the breeze with Kevin McStay in the process. Bad form!

If you actually believe that, you can make a fortune at the bookies. Trust me they will line up to take the money of you.

Pass me a bucket! You only appear on here to crow about how great Dublin are (look at your username ffs) and to insult others.

reading through the thread, and where did all this doping malarkey come from? Have i been living under a rock or are men here just trying to tarnish dublins accomplishments?

It's like he's done media training and treats this as the media but got it all wrong  ;D

To be fair though I find some of the criticism of Gavin a bit harsh. Yes he has clear advantages but he is clearly an exceptional guy too. It will be very interesting to see how they follow up now. You would expect them to still dominate but how much so will tell us how good he is / was.

That will depend on the quality of the opposition. Will Kerry get closer ? Will anyone else step up?
