Dublin are the greatest team in GAA history and getting better year after year ...  Dublin v Donegal semi has makings of a classic ... unless Cavan have a say tomorrow, canít see it.

GAA have created a monster in this Dublin setup.
A classic?

In truth McEntee isn't a top coach or near it, he's Banty level

He's done alright in a limited way with Meath in that he got them into Division 1 but this tonight is the brutal, brutal truth

The teams are playing different sports

Meath should have nabbed Malachy O'Rourke last year when they had the chance

I wonder would they go for Mickey Harte

Maybe Jim Gavin fancies a challenge

Div 1 and Leinster Final, a good coach. . They could bring in McGuinness, O'Rourke, Gavin and Harte and would still take a tanking
They'd lose alright but they might be competitive

The coach makes a massive difference

See Waterford hurlers today compared to Waterford 2019

See Donegal 2020 compared to Donegal 2017

Or Donegal 2012 compared to Donegal 2010

Meath with their first score since the 8th minute. 2-13 to 0-3.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Meath have now matched their score in the 2019 Leinster final

Can they beat it

It would be a moral victory

In all seriousness, Dublin will easily win the next 4 or 5 All Irelandís.

By that time, everyone else wonít even be taking county football in any way serious.

The Leinster championship has been dead for years. The AI will be the same.

And you know what? I'm delighted. Genuinely hope the Gaa are on their knees in 10 years financially wise.

Can you explain your thinking on that?

Because Im pissed off that they've destroyed football.

If you think tactics and a game plan are the difference here youíre talking out your shitepipe. raw talent, conditioning and athleticism that is unmatched by any other team in the country.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

OK, but how have Mayo managed to so consistently compete with Dublin in that case?

harte has had a much better Tyrone team and not got near this Dublin team.

Is that what the football championship is being reduced to though? The hope that once every five years a team might give Dublin a run of it?

Dublin bet Mayo by ten points last year. If the two sides meet again this year, I would expect a similar margin of defeat.

Meath cannot bridge the gap with the Dubs under the current system.
The Leinster fuball  championship is pointless.

I donít think Iíll bother watching the second half or next season for that matter. Whatís the f**king point. No one is going to get even close to Dublin, not Donegal or Mayo.

The only way Meath is close to Dublin is at the county boundary.

Things have changed a lot since 1991.
If at first you don't succeed, then goto Plan B

Iíve said it before but when will the penny drop?

Ten in a row? 15?

One of these years theyíll be caught out on a bad day, but theyíre going to win at least four out of five All Irelandís for the foreseeable future.

Maybe by 2030 weíll be talking about a split.
