Meath V Dublin Leinster Final.

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


I think Dublin can win this easily, I'd love to see Dublin concentrate on the onion bag only and I suspect 5 goals alone will be more than enough to beat Meath, but would love to see Dublin put 8, 9, or 10 in the Meath net. Forget the points, we all know that Dublin can rack up 20 points plus but they also have the players to hit more than enough goals in 70mins to beat what is an average Meath team. Hammer the s***e outta them..

I reckon Meath will stay tight to Dublin early on, maybe even go a couple of points ahead, but Dublin will push on in the second quarter to go in leading at half time.
Once again early in the second half, Meath will push on and tag on a few scores in a purple patch, but Dublin will weather this storm and blow them away by the end, with their bench being far too strong.
Final score : Dublin 4-17 Meath 0-14

Y'know whats mad about that though, From what im hearing from people around the Dublin camp, and here listen, I may be wrong, it may just be a rumour, but word has it anyway that Dublin are playing for a win, which, in fairness, is encouraging to hear."
Wouldn't of taught a meath man like you wayno would know what's going on in the dublin camp.

Yep. That's the plan I'm sure pal.

Replying To the_walls:  "Don't be playing the auld victim card, particularly when having a read on your forum there is lads being absolutely slated and having their support for Meath questioned for voicing the view (based on football and not on emotional bluster) that they can't see past a very comfortable Dublin win. They might be wrong but that is their objective view. It doesn't mean that they don't want Meath to win any less.

Meath fans (as any fans of any county are) are fully entitled to be optimistic and proclaim that they are going to be right in the mix and have a great chance of beating Dublin. Have at it, no one is stopping you. By the same token, others are fully entitled to completely disagree with you, explain why and tell you that they find your optimism utterly ridiculous and deluded. If it turns out that you boys are correct, you will have great ammunition on Monday to tell everyone you told them so. Until then though, people are fully entitled to challenge your view.

Why would anyone feel you should pull out of the Leinster Championship? Is this some attempt at creating a siege mentality? Just because most people think Leinster is a total procession and will be this year too, doesn't mean that all Leinster counties, including Meath, shouldn't be striving to reel Dublin in."

Replying To royaldunne:  "That's it, tbh I am getting a little tired of some (fair few allegedly from Meath) trying to shout down anyone saying that Meath could win, is it unlikely? Yes , but bloody hell we can all aspire to it. Otherwise what's the point?? I see some saying donegal are dubs main challenge, and that maybe true, Meath were unlucky twice v donegal who only beat them by small margin in both games.
Anyway I am going to watch my beloved Meath play in a Leinster final, and I will go with expecting nothing less than a victory, if it doesn't come to pass , we dust ourselves down and look forward to the next round."
You keep harping on about this... Donegal still beat you both times. The first time we beat you, it was a meaningless enough league game, the second time we beat you in the league two final, from about 10 points down. Once we woke up you couldn't live with us. We might not be a main challenge to Dublin but will give them a genuine game and a lot close than Meath will this weekend. I wish you would give them a game, honestly, it would create an actual Leinster championship again. But it won't happen sadly

I really fear what is going to happen Meath on Sunday. If they go out with a quality defensive plan and damage limitation with 9 players nearly always in their own half i think, along with a wet day, they could beat the 12 point spread.
However i've a bad feeling pride along with believing their own hype they might go man to man. If they do it will be a massacre im afraid. This is Meath's 1st game against a top 10 side in championship in 5 years outside Navan, they also lost the 2 they did play in Navan. Most of this team have never experienced the intensity of what awaits them come Sunday. If they go pretty much man for man i think they will need 3+ goals and maybe they can get in or around 15/16 points in total (which would still be 12 pts too few) because i cant see who is going to kick the 8/9 long range (outside the 45) along with the usual 9/10 close range points/frees you need to compete with Dublin . Conlon wont get a sniff against Dublin, just too small yet for Div one sides. Newman couldn't score from play against Laois what hope has he against Dublin? Kildare have a couple of quality accurate lads who can kick outside the 45 put still could only manage 11pts.
I don't think this Dublin team will concede 3 goals either. So i hope for Meath they play a defensive plan otherwise a similar result to 2014 or maybe worse i believe is on the cards.
Silver lining on a right hammering is more pressure and embarrassment on the likes of JIm Bolger and his ilk who by the way will be sure as usual to blame Kildare fans for the result, the poor crowd, expensive tickets and probably the weather come Sunday evening!

Go back to Drawda (or whatever backward part of Loud you're from) and practice pronouncing the letter 'R' correctly, like a good man

That says it all really. Having a go at someone because of their accent..... Get a grip. Pure ignorance.

Replying To royaldunne:  "And if I were you I'd be more Worried about Down than been on the homepage of a county you not playing, I don't venture onto any other county forum until a match."
This is one of the most ridiculous posts I've ever seen from you, and that's saying something because it has some very stiff competition.

If this is genuinely your attitude (rather than some ham fisted "wind up") then it is no wonder that you have complete tunnel vision and only see the GAA as a whole through the prism of Meath GAA and nothing else. Of course I'm more worried about the Down game than Dublin v Meath but guess what, I'm not a player or part of the backroom team, me talking about counties or other games or interacting with other county fans on an anonymous internet discussion board won't make the slightest bit of difference to Mayo's or Down's performance. It also won't in any way affect my support of Mayo on Saturday evening. Believe it or not the match won't be determined in the slightest on whether I have a 100%, 24 hour a day focus on it in the week leading up to it. I like seeing what fans of other counties have to say, what their point of view is and all that type of thing. If you don't have any interest in anything else other than your own parochial corner of the GAA that is entirely up to you. I think it's pretty sad but as I say, your choice, but to use the fact that someone else might have an interest in the GAA as a whole as a stick to beat them with is bizarre to say the least. Enjoy your echo chamber.

Trust me the league final was a meaningless game, and still needed a disallowed goal to win it, along with dark arts and in the refs ear from Murphy. As the league standing shows Meath topped it. Enough said. I'd worry about Cavan more than this game. I haven't commented once on that game,

Meath have not gone man to man all summer or in the league and don't expect them to now. Don't confuse the hype on here with the professional management set up in Meath. Andy Mc has won an all Ireland club with perceived underdogs and certainly wont be naïve to go man on man and leave space in behind. Meath will use the same defensive system they have used all year which is 10-12 men behind the ball, 2 men inside and 1 man around the middle to break if we get a turnover.

How do you conclude they wont concede 3 goals when they gave kildare 3 massive openings that kildare wasted? Meath have been creating more goal chances than Kildare this summer and the league and taking them. Meath put up 2-12 vs the Fermanagh defence.

Meath have played Donegal twice and Tyrone once in last 3 years losing by a point twice and 2 points once. Only one of those games was in Navan.

Dublin are a special side and I fully expect them to win handily in the end but to think Meath will be caught like a deer in headlights and underestimate the Dubs and leave them 1-1 is absurd

Every team goers out to win, as the alternative would be to either stay at home and give a walkover. How a team did in the league has little relevance to championship football (Mayo won the league). Championship football is played at a different pace on dryer pitch conditions-after that ability, decision making and work rate takes over. All teams are at, or closer to a 'level playing field' in terms of fitness, which may not be the case in the league. Dublin up to now have been at a different level to all other teams in the country. We all have different opinions although some opinions appear to be more based on what we would like to see happening. Dublin will be beaten at some time in the future, but when and by who is difficult to predict.
