60 years since an Ulster team retained the All-Ireland.

Dublin 5
Kerry 3
Meath 1
Cork 1

Rossfan thinks we're going to do a Donegal, with our single 2021 Championship -- don't think so bud!  :P ;)
  Take care when predicting ten years in advance as the bookies don't fancy your chances of winning the next one, never mind any beyond that.
I was shocked to find that both Paddy Power re offering at the minute odds of Dublin triumphing at odds of 11/8. Kerry are second place at 6/4 with Tyrone and Mayo next, tied on 9/1.
Betfair is giving the same odds.
I can't make head nor tails of this.

Anyone able to post Brollys full analysis from the independent?

Didn’t see it but my guess is:

RTE quiz joke
Loads of pints last night
Received a text msg from a former player
Aidan O’Shea is a joke

I’m so great
Everyone looking a selfie with me
The winners are great fellas and I knew they’d win
The losers are prima donnas and i knew they’d lose
The winning team all texted me afterwards
I’m so great
:) :).
Bang on!

Maybe it’s time to get a little bit serious here….. ;D

I hope we have a great game and that, one way or the other, we’ll have a clear cut winner.
Obviously, I’m hoping that Mayoo will prevail but neither team can afford to get cocky bases on their Given what’s been said and written, both teams beat their respective opponents off the field and they played with class, determination knocking their opponents about like skittles.
But a little bit of adverse luck here and there and both results could have been very different..
Mayo were blessed that Robbie Henelly goe the proverbial second bite of the cherry and brought the game to extra time. If we lost at that stage, we'd have only ourselves to blame. If Tyrone should go 7 points in front, Mayo can kiss goodbye to Sam for yet another year.
My one fear is that Mayo will do what Mayo are very inclined to do and that is to fade out of the game at times.
Just hope they won’t do this next Saturday!
Tyrone?
They got a rub of the green, like Mayo. Kerry stayed with them right to the very end and literally there was only a kick of the ball between them. If Stephen O’Brien didn’t act the fool, Kerry would have gotten a goal and I couldn’t see Tyrone coming back after that.
David Clifford’s cramp came  at the right time for Tyrone. If he had played to the end,  feel Mayo could very well be facing Kerry on Saturday.
In short, both teams rode their luck in their respective semis. Both sides can’t be lucky in the same game so let the best team win.

Is CoC being parachuted into the team unfit to make an appearance in the last few minutes if Mayo are up just so he can get his hands on a medal? No way he could be back from an achilles Tendon in 2 and a half months.

I'm only guessing but that would be incredible from the management to use a bench space like that. No player in the country probably deserves a medal more but when you have only 11 subs and a really good chance of using a lot of them if it goes to extra time.

Surely this has to be nonsense.
Oh, no it isn’t! It’s just James H playing his version of silly buggers, as Jack Charlton might put it. He wants to keep everybody guessing, including Dooher and Lohan, until the last possible moment.
That way, Tyrone’s pre-matchups can’t be finalised until Horan finally shows his hand.I’m guessing that won’t happen until the teams line up behind the Artane Boys Band!
 From what I’m hearing from down home, Eoghan Mac is probably fit to play but won’t start.
The rumour is that his jaw break wasn’t as bad as originally feared. He didn't need to have the jaw wired, merely had plates inserted. (And no, I don't understand that either!)
Can’t  see Cillian starting or making the bench but we all will have to wait until the throw-in.

Its on Brolly's twitter feed if anyone cares to look for a laugh

Christ on a bike. That's unbelievable. Playing up the Kerry connections before a potential final against the Kingdom. And his poor Kerry girlfriend not knowing who to support in the final! Funny how it was published the day after the final, but was obviously finalised before the Tyrone game. Is this attitude the norm in Mayo?

What attitude?

Doing the whole "up for the match" style piece, bigging up family links with the opposition County, before Kerry had even got to the final! If she was from Limerick or Donegal would he have said it?

that whole piece was done months ago. It's recency is down to the fact that Mayo are in the final and it was part of a promo for a company that released it as part of an 10th anniversary press release at the end of July.
Good chance this was all done long before the Connacht Final and only getting published now in that paper. Its been regurgitated a few times now by the same publishing stable. Slow news days etc, but the printers getting value for money from the same story.

Can never understand the rage people have on the rare occasion this lad's photo is in a paper. If we makes a few extra euro's off getting his photo taken, good luck to him. He'll be getting loads of abuse from certain quarters no matter what he does.

Months ago my bollix
Be careful Larry ;you could lose your town halls!
That appeared in the Mayo News at least two months ago. Mind you, no photos.
Some time ago Paul Flynn took part in some advertising campaign or other. Pint is that his likeness on was put on a billboard on the railway bridge in Ballybough. One of the highest profile spots in Dublin and I can't recall  Brolly or anyone else reacting.  Players, Dubs especially, have took part in promotional campaigns without a a squawk from Brolly.
The man's a wart on the arse of humanity.

Mayo wont lose this one , mayo are the best team in Ireland at present and will win this comfortably  by a bigger margin than anyone will predict .
Not me!
I did predict that Mayo.would beat Dublin by a half dozen points at the start of thàt semi thread and I see no reason to alter my view this time.
Okay the result was only half that but my money will be on Mayo this time also.

Am I dreaming or did one of the commentators or pundits in the mayo Dublin game not say something about O'Shea having only scored a couple of points in all his games against Dublin??
You're not dreaming, I'm afraid.
I checked Willie Joe's results archive and it appears that Aido only scored a single point aginst the Dubs in finals and semis. That was in the 2015 replay.

I was genuinely delighted that Tyrone stuffed the yerras.Nothing to do with the fact that Mayo will be facing them in the final.
But I was chuffed that PeterKeane got his comeuppance good and proper.
I thought his cack-handed sympathies to Tytrone after the slaughter in the last league game in Killarney was a classic example of sarcasm at its finest.
He complimented Tyrone, IIRC, by saying if you take out the goals, all six (five?) of them, there really wasn’t much between the sides. (Or something like that!)
Then and now, the man is an arrogant bollix  and I was praying that Tyrone would wipe the smirk off his puss.
For me, September 11 is a different matter entirely as I’m Mayo and proud of it but Keane and Kerry fans in general need a good sickening once in  while.

There is a house in Ballsbridge of all places with Mayo bunting out 2 weeks in advance of the final. Mayo are losing the run of themselves, they think they have won it already.

That's Ballymun Kickhams fans getting ready for the Dublin Championship.
Could be a Portuguese family otherwise
Could be a Ballymun supporter but, somehow, I doubt it.
Ballymun is a long way from Balls bridge and hoodies and trainers are the formal dress attire. Hush puppies and designer gear are de either in the leafy suburb of Balls ridge.
Damn predictive spelling spelling! ;D  ;D

If the 2 semi finals are anything to go by this will be a real war of attrition. Even though both sides had monumental victories against the odds in the semi final, both sides have a lot of improvement to make in terms of quality for the final. It is hard to quantify exactly the confidence boost that each side would have gained from their semi final victories but this shouldn’t be underestimated.

Mayo will have to decide whether to start O’Se and I suspect that they probably will. He was poor the last day but he does bring an enormous level of physicality, he just probably shouldn’t be deployed isolated close to goal. He is capable of winning a lot of ball around midfield against that Tyrone midfield and that is one area where Mayo would expect to come out on top.

Tyrone you would feel have to start Mc Shane based on yesterday’s cameo, without him
they would not have won that match and he brings a ball winning capability inside that McCurry can’t provide.

Both sides also now have to face a complete mindset change going into the final. Both will now see this as a great opportunity of lifting Sam and that brings a totally different pressure. Mayo possibly moreso as they are favourites going into a final for the first time in living memory.

The extra weeks will not really matter too much although a 4 week gap for Mayo is not ideal especially since I would imagine that a lot of their analysis and tactical work would have been predicated on them facing Kerry in the final.

Really difficult match to call but if the semi finals are anything to go by then it will be a bruising encounter as both sides play high octane physical games.
O'Sé was pretty poor alright in the last game but I believe he was carrying a heel injury into the game so that may be the reason for him being below par.

Nah the Death Star took out. But the Empire could Strike back next year, leading up to the concluding trilogy  ;lol 😂

You only have to look at the Taliban and their comeback.

The Taliban did it on their own. Dublin couldn't despite a tenfold numerical advatage until they were given millions by Bertie and the GAA.

Totally wrong. Taliban did a deal with Trump, Dublin did a deal with Bertie. Taliban fond of beheading and Dublin were trying a bit of beheading at the weekend too. Taliban are sponsored by Toyota Hilux, Dublin also sponsored by Toyota

https://www.toyotasandyford.ie/pages/news/toyota-article/world-of-toyota/articles-news-events/2014/Toyota-Announces-Three-Year-Partnership-with-Dublin-GAA.json#:~:text=Toyota%20Ireland%20is%20delighted%20to,car%20partner%20to%20Dublin%20GAA.

It remains to be seen if the Taliban sweep out dressing rooms but I think the comparison above is perfect.

The taliban after being defeated in Afghanistan have come back and now rule the country. Great comparison Itchy. Like you I hope the dubs can come back and reclaim their throne
It's a good comparison - as regards dirty play and incorrigible cynacism , they are well- matched.  ;D ;D
