All Ireland Semi Finals Deegan and McQuillan

(Oldest Posts First)

Deegan and McQuillan

Once again McQuillan gets Dublin but now neither of the two mentioned will not get the All Ireland Final does that mean Hughes from Armagh is going to get the final. I hope not.

Time for the GAA to give the younger referees a chance, young Mooney's an excellent ref, did the All Ireland Junior Final last week and got one of the minor semi finals, he's held in high regard in HQ.

This thread has been hijacked by silly bickering. Everybody time wastes and breaks play when ahead, part and parcel of the game. I will remind you of that three quarters of those frees happened in the last 10 minutes where the Dublin performance was more akin to rugby than football. However, we would have done the same, it's a tactic to win, same as us breaking play when we could.

I see a real tactical developement this year. I will also admit I was one of the most staunch Kevin McStay advocates, but the lads are doing what everybody could see for the last three years.Back to the game, it is almost impossible to call, it's a game of tiny margins, I believe if Mayo can stop Dublin getting goals, we have every chance to beat them.

The opposite is also true, if Dublin are allowed play their own running game, they are unstoppable. I would be thinking we will not go man for man as that will play right into Dublins hands and I could see them beating us.I don't think this will happen though. It will be a very tight game and I could see a point or two either way, which is why the referee is crucial. Look, to call a spade a spade Joe McQuillan is/was far too involved with Dublin to be reffing in games at the business end involving them. If you can't see that this familiarity ends up in sub concious favouritism you are mad in the head. But I feel the Mayo management are cute enough to make sure they will highlight in the media the relationship between Dublin and Mc Quillan. To be honest, I'd take Mc Auillan any day over Marty Duffy.

I think the game is as close to 50/50 as you are going to get. Hopefully it falls our way and hopefully the ref doesn't even come into the conversation.

McQuillan should NOT have got the Dublin match. He's too friendly with them.
