Ah but sure you'd never have had the romance of Tipperary and Cavan last year if we did that!  ;D

Don't think they have the defence to win the All Ireland. I would put them together with Donegal at a level below the Dubs and the runner up this season will be one of those two.

Kerry giving an exhibition of football. Mayo will hammer Galway in Connacht final.  Like their hurley counterpoints they have a soft underbelly. At least Kevin Welsh had them set up proper defensivily.

They have clifford and sean o se who are capable of beating the Dublin defence , no other county have forwards next to near that type of talent and that's why they could come close . Dublin v kerry final is odds on imo . Should be a cracker too. Just a shame it will be a near enough empty croke park again . It's a nothing occasion tbh without a packed croke park,  hard to get excited about it in that sense .
Two good lads without a doubt but you need a lot more than two to win an AI and Kerry come up short in too many positions. Geaney appears to have fallen out with Peter Keane and Moran is getting a bit too long in the tooth to stick the pace with Dublin for a full game.
I can't think of anyone else who'd cause Dessie Farrell to lose any sleep.
Like Mayo  before them, Kerry ran Dublin close in the '19 final but got swept away in the replay. They didn't have the aerobic fitness to last the pace.
Clifford,  for instance, was out on his feet for the last 20 minutes or so- he had been dragged all over the field by Jonny Cooper, a much older man. In truth, all the Kerry players were banjaxed by the end. Same as Mayo in the '15 replay, the Dubs' superior fitness was the deciding factor in the end.
There is always the chance that the Dubs could have an occasional off-day but I won't hold my breath waiting for this to happen.

Both a joy to watch, so young too, will win a few IMO

One All Ireland since 2009.
Keane's 3rd Year with only one Munster title to his name.
The humiliation of 2020 beaten by a non contender Cork Team.
The have the players and the panel
Legacy weight on their shoulders.

Nothing less that an All Ireland is failure, pressure is on.

No pressure on the Dubs, New management in Tyrone, they wont expect miracles straight way, no one will tip Mayo, etc.

Donít think the pressure was on Kerry until this thread started. All changed now.😕

zero chance of Dublin losing this year

they have 30 players better than almost every other team.
and better conditioned too.

No they donít. David Clifford would make the Dublin team and maybe geaney. Not sure many others would.

They don't. Only David Clifford would be a starter among Dublins six best forwards.

Kerry only 3 weeks training . Wait til they have 3 months done.

The Gas thing is the GAA world is looking to Kerry to save Gaelic football. It's a bit like looking to Rangers to save Scottish football.

Like looking to Dublin, late 70s and 80s....

In fairness it was Dublin in the 70's that were overhauled by Kerry. Dublin won a AI against the head in '83. Just like Kerry did in 2014.
