Dublin - So , Attention turns to Kerry .. again!!!

Last year , Our league form was vital in gaining momentum and confidence on our way to winning the All ireland. This year , we will need to adopt the same approach starting with Kerry in Croker in 12 days time. We will go into the game missing Bernard and Alan Brogan. We will also go into the game on the back of a horror show against Kildare. But , Like september 18th , Yesterday is history and we move on. With that in mind , How do you guys think we will line up for the game against last years All ireland beaten finalists.

not sure about o'gara wayno played against meath the weekend had a shocking performance as much as i like him and wanted him to do well last year still hasnt found his form height and strength is brilliant but still seems to be very clumsey at times like your standard bread and butter stuff like just holding on to the ball seems to very unsettled but hope he does find his form other than that good choice..

probably be slated for this but anyway reckon the lads lost yesterday to probably give more time for the opener in the league dont be worrying im not using excuses cause we lost just hypo talking anyway.....

come on dublin

i did a bit of moaning about him in the post above but in saying all that maybe a goal or 2 or few points under his belt might give him the confidence he lacks at the minute.....

We could be missing Marc as well, he's suffering from a burst ear drum at the moment, although he's hopeful of being fit in time.

That's a decent side FOB but it's the usual story, without the Brogans I'm looking at that top six and thinking where are the scores going to come from? I'm sick of saying it but Connolly is capable but rarely delivers the scores. Flynn will work hard back but won't contribute points. Kevin Mc will carry the ball into dangerous areas and may goal or get dispossessed but don't look to him for points. Same goes for Mossy. McCarthy is the great hope I suppose and Paddy will be dangerous if he is given the ball. Just like Kildare, Kerry backs will choke that Dublin attack if the build up is slow as it was in Newbridge.

But here's hoping!
