I hope Cluxton gets it.

Just give him player of the decade.

Eoin Murchan also made a significant impact, but Gavin wasn’t surprised by the effectiveness of the Na Fianna clubman.

“Yeah, listen it was a great set move from the throw-in,” Gavin commented about Murchan’s 36th minute goal.

“Really well executed by the team collective you'd have to say. A really nice execution at the end of the move by Eoin. I've seen it before from him, don't think anybody was surprised when it hit the net. You are surprised maybe to get that space from the opening play.

“Eoin did really well, he really committed himself, it is what you see from them when you are with them that often. They all have jobs to do, when we meet it is very brief. So your time is precious with them, but they are a great team, great men to work with.”

Testament to Dublin that they were able to bring on Connolly and still win. Bar one sweet pass, he was piss poor and could have cost them the game.  Must be hard to watch for Dublin players on the sidelines that have been putting in the hard yards all year.

Yes, he turned over ball at least 3 times coming into the home front. When possession was the name of the game.

I saw it that way too.

Well done to the Dubs. They are a great team and seem to always find a way to get it done. Until Cluxton goes I think it will stay that way and six and maybe even seven in a row are probable.
Con O'Callaghan should have been black carded but couldnt buy a free after it. The goal should have been blown for steps but remarkable to think it was a pre planned move (blocking and all).

It is up to the others to raise their standards but it will be difficult given the levels Dublin have got to. If you are a believer in the 10,000 hour rule the rest have a lot of time to put in. Kerry didnt look as fit over the two games - Murphy and Foley both went down with cramp ? They can work on that but need to find a bit more steel as well. If Tyrone spent less time on dark arts and more time playing football they can contend as well. Donegal also possible. Anyway it was good sport.

I get Hounds point about McAuley's recklessness and see him as a potential accident waiting to happen for Dublin. At some stage he is going to catch someone with one of those elbows/clothes lines and see red. That might give Kerry a chance but they need everything to go right and a lot to go wrong for the Dubs. Fenton is just different gravy and have no idea how Kerry can cope with him.

The only other glimmer I see for Kerry is that even having a good defence doesnt cut it against Dublin. So having a porous one might not make much difference and you might as well go all out attack.

Home come 1/3 of children in the UK are obese?

The quick answer is that the food pyramid we grew up with was the wrong way round. If you have the time....

Cheltenham every year
Aintree/Ascot/Epsom etc

It has really created a culture of outrage. Everyone has to be outraged by everything. You can see it by certain people on this board too. I suspect their age has a bearing and growing up in the social media culture.

The great North of Ireland past time "Whataboutery" has taken over the world.

1990   Cork    0–11   Meath   0–9   
1991   Down   1–16   Meath   1–14   
1992 Donegal   0–18   Dublin   0–14   
1993   Derry   1–14   Cork   2–8   
1994   Down   1–12   Dublin   0–13   
1995   Dublin   1–10   Tyrone   0–12   
1996   Meath   2–9   Mayo   1–11   
1997 Kerry   0–13   Mayo   1–7   
1998   Galway   1–14   Kildare   1–10   
1999   Meath   1–11   Cork   1–8   

Down and Meath double winners. Meath also beaten twice. Cork won one lost 2.

All three should have more players than Derry unless the National League was very important :-\

All Stars Here

probably not articulating this well never understand hoe brolly can love the gaa and be so harsh/personal about individuals.

Keegan call brutal. Connolly a great footballer but .....

Not sure who's been worse? Maurice Deegan or Canning and Carney on commentary.

true - anyone who thinks that mccarthy wasnt trying to hurt vaughan was not a back  :) - no malice my hole.

odds on small scoring the winning point ?

I hope Deegan sees a few highlights at half time - he needs to balance this out.

Shocking decision. Dublin have had a huge ref bias in this championship and play them all.

the level of sterling depends on how well the Brits negotiate with Europe. If they get a deal like the outline of EU membership, sterling goes to 1.45 vs the dollar
If they don't , it goes between 1.20 and 1.30
the last time they negotiated trade seriously was 1973

I bet they drop Brexit

They will probably be happy with a lower exchange rate which can offset effect of any tariffs.

The only thing they probably really want to hold onto is passporting for financial services.
