Really looking forward to Saturday.
First time in a long time I left Croke Park happy with a draw. After we went a point down near the end it was great to see how we reacted and Kerry seemed to freeze a bit. A lot of lads will be thinking ahead now and a chance to redeem themselves and I think we have a real good chance with 15 back in. If Dubs can keep the discipline and stay in it with 10 to go I reckon we'll do it.

Yeah, I don't get that if I'm honest.
Small is always a risk but he is a solid defender.
Connolly on the other hand would probably offer more going forward but It's a big call if it's the case that he's in from the start.
If he comes and plays well it'll be a stroke of genius by JG and if it backfires then he'll take flack for it. He's done ok this far I suppose so well have to give him the benefit of the doubt.

JS has a very nasty cut on his palm from the final that hasn't fully healed. But ssshh, don't tell that other shower...!
Expect more than 1 change ...! Bench to change also

The team sheet with DC at 7 doing the rounds seems Photoshopped to me. Of more interest to me is who it's source is.

Absolute rubbish I'd say, pity because it looked like White was on Jack again.

Why is it "absolute rubbish" Username?

It look's legit to me but folks can do all sorts on computers nowadays so probably not.

Maybe rubbish is the wrong word as of course I don't know for certain, but I would be skeptical given what you can do in photo shop these days. If it is real we know that the team often named doesn't start. It's Gavin White on the opposite side starting on Jack that has me skeptical, surely they wouldn't put him on Jack again. So I highly doubt it's legit. That's my thinking anyway.

So if that team did start, we can presume Howard, and Dermo flip. Jamesey goes in at 6 man to man and pushes up to make it a midfield three, to match what Kerry did the last day playing three in there. Kerry played two up top most of the time the last day, that team looks like we are going to attack it. Fitzey I presume will take Clifford with Jonny on Geaney, I don't have a problem with that system if it's the way Jim wants to go, i just don't think real, a leak like this would be very unlike us.

Teams aren't announced so it's not legit and the match programme doesnt get printed that early, end of. Also, even if the actual matchday squad was similar it would be coincidental. If it's not a photoshop, it could be a practice run on the printout and the printer might be a Dermo fan.

It's a Saturday game that picture came out Tuesday surely it's printed by then no? The team is given in for the program surely earlier so they've time to print it? I'm not arguing here just asking questions.

If it had Connolly at 10 instead of Scully I wouldn't believe it cause that's so obvious if someone was messing but to have him at 7 has me believing it more if you get me.

I heard an argument that it went to press early, because the women's final is on this weekend too and it's double the work of a normal week. Still think it's a decoy myself.

Zoom in on it. Connolly's name seems to me to be less bold than the other names on that side. It's not hard to cut and paste like that. Who ever did it is getting great mileage out of it. Wonder was it an inside job?

It has been acknowledged that that document was fraud. Don't know it's provenance but it is a crock...

John Small is a huge loss (if out) really underrated player on our team whoever he marks he gets the better of every time. Great player for Dublin.

Agree, His loss-cif it comes to pass- really worries me. We're light enough at the back as it is.
