Kerry V Dublin

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post


Well lads will we stab at the starting XV? The big question surrounds, White, Tommy and Briòn O'Beagleach. In the past a case was always made for the captain to start, but PK has no mass on sentiment and I recall he stating his displeasure at the current selection process adopted in choosing a captain in an article back in January .

Anyway for we I would keep Tommy in reserve, I'm between two minds regarding Sherwood but I expect we will start Barry, Moran and Adrain that's the formation PK likes and has tried and trusted in his intercounty days to date,

For me it's Ryan, Foley, Morley, Tom Sull, Murphy, Sherwood, Crowley, Moran, Barry, Adrain, Seanie, White/O'Beagleach Clifford, Paul and Stephen.

I have a feeling we could see Seanie inside with DC more with Paul playing deeper around the 40. But being honest one could make a case for Tommy and Killian starting but you know I've heard a lot of talk of a bolter from Dromid in the shape of Graham Sullivan, the south kerry man has always impressed me and was outstanding for UCC and in any league match he appeared in. Now it would be a big ask but again it's one that Dublin wouldn't expect and what is the point being in the match day 26 unless you possess the capabilities to be drawn upon if required, there is also talk of Killian Young coming in but that would be a huge ask in my opinion for one who has played no ball what so ever in 2019.

But I think PK will go traditional and his tried and trusted

A legit enough looking match programme doing rounds on whatapp that has Connolly named at No 7 with small making way, only change to last day.
Assume if that was the team Connolly would go into forwards, MDM to half backs and Howard to midfield?

White did well when he came on against Tyrone horse so maybe that should be his roll, other than that I'd say your team is going to be spot on.

GO'S is an excellent footballer and if PK thinks he's ready then I won't argue, could the dancer be another bolter? His speed and direct running would be great against a tired defense.

It's important that we don't let the dubs go 4/5 up again as they'll play their keep ball game and make us chase them down.

Ya jod can't be match fit in fairness, he needs to go and get his body sorted , he's nearly 30 now and time or tide waits for no man.

Are you serious, would a programme be printed as early as Tuesday? I don't think Connolly will be named, he may start with brogan taking his place on the bench. As far number 7 most def not, I see McCarthy at 8 but would imagine he will be detailed to take Tommy when introduced.

I agree with K'Boy we have to start at 100% and try to keep our net in tact for as long as possible.

I think too our forwards will have been utilizing the ground tyres in training as we know Cluxton is good but the low shot is the Achilles heel for the veteran net minder at this stage and should be tested

Actually ya I keep forgetting the dancer but apart from the brief and effective cameo against Galway we haven't really seen much of him, I don't know traleegerry with ten to go James could be an off the bench option a he has the football brain and was throwing shapes in Ennis. My fear though is he could/would go for the marquee score like Connolly where being the team player and going through the phases to a player in a better position may be the safer option.

Time will tell...... thanks too Hermit, it'll keep that in mind appreciate it.

The dancer is some size of a man and has speed to burn, speaking of burn what had happened with Michael burns? We haven't seen him since his poor display in the first half against Meath.

Darragh more confident than two weeks ago but still opts for Dublin, probably speaks for a lot of us!

Michael burns threw a tantrum and left the panel so PK left him walk and rightly so

Burns was socialising in Dublin with James and Shaw the weekend of the drawn game.

In my opinion he has plateau'd as they say. Hit a certain level but unable to push on

So you reckon no JOD this weekend Gerry?
Such an awful shame if true. I had visions before the last game and now leading up to this one that he would spring off the bench like a knight in shinning armor to put 1-2 past the Dubs and seal victory which would make for a wonderful story after the years of injuries and disappointments. A bit like Star in '14.
But sport is cruel I suppose, only 1 All Ireland still for all that talent :(

Traleegerry and horse , I didn't think he was much of a team player anyway, hated passing the ball and often held on to it so long that it allowed defenders shackle their man.

From what I've seen in Navan would have to agree but then I was thinking back to PUC he came on that night and was heavily involved late on. Do he has something, may be just lacking in belief and discipline

James is past tense re Kerry combination of injury and extracurricular events stopped him in his tracks a shame as he was a rare talent and should have been fulcrum of the attack now. Interesting piece by Jerry Grogan PRO Cumann na mBunscol in this weeks edition of Kerryman . Kerry influences in football not confined to county Just one change I'd make on Saturday Shane Enright on Dean Rock Jason Foley on Jack Mc Caffrey hold Jack Sherwood Killian Spillane and Tommy to be used in a similar way as last day Fingers crossed 1 -18 to 2 -11 Sam home on Sunday

Fair play 37 you have shown confidence in our kerry team. It has taken you quiet a while and please please I do not want a lecture in our own spoken word or the spoken word of the Crown. Ciarrai abu

Lads no way would I consider James a rare talent. Yes he was a classy footballer but sadly he lacked the vital talent of winning his own dirty or hard ball as the likes of John Egan did many a time. James reminded me of some of my own club men Derry O shea and thorny o shea when you gave them the ball they were fine

Ok tà mo dhòchas ionnta arís ach ní mar a shíltear bítear i gcònaí There is a huge interest in the Irish language even the Unionists are rowing in with it if it can stop Brexit ! and the GAA has as one of its main aims the promotion of the language Who will ever forget Páidís stirring acceptance of Sam in 85 ,and Dara Ò Cinnèdis even classier rendition in 2004 , in ár dteanga dùchais ? Made me proud of my Kerry heritage Great watching the 13 semifinal how unlucky as 3 Kerry players spilled the ball on the 69 minute to give Dublin the lead Johnny Cooper should have walked in that game too for a dangerous kick/trip on Colm Cooper
