Kerry forward Paul Geaney is adamant that the Kingdom will be crowned All-Ireland SFC champions in 2018.
Geaney, who was the only Kerry man to pick up an All-Star this year, is in no doubt that they are not far away from matching the likes of Dublin and Mayo.
"Is Kerry far away? Not at all," Geaney told the Kerryman. "I don't think any of the top three are, top four maybe, depending on what strides are made in the coming year.
"I think they are closely grouped together, obviously with Dublin out in front at the moment, but once that grip starts to loosen you never know.
"Every year I come back I'm extremely confident. I say it outright that we're going to win the title. It's my complete belief every year I've been involved that we're going to win the All-Ireland.
"Unfortunately, we've only done it once since I've been a Kerry player, but it's exciting. Whatever I did last year is history now as well and I've to better it this year."
