Hi boy I see you were caught out at last, you let your mask slip over on the Kildare page, I knew from day 1 you were a WUM and that you weren't a Kerry person.

Kerry team to play dublin this evening at 7pm.

Shane Murphy.
Dan O'Donaghue, Jason Foley Tom O'Sullivan.
Paul Murphy Tadhg Morley Brian O'Beaglaoich.
Diarmuid O'Connor Jack Barry.
Adrian Spillane Seán O'Shea Dara Moynihan.
David Clifford Paul Geaney Paudie Clifford.

Not too confident about our goalie, I'd rather have seen Shane Ryan get the nod, if dublin go direct and drop a few high balls on top of him I think they'll cause him a lot of problems.

Would prefer to see the forwards as follows:
Adrian Spillane, Seán O'Shea, Paudie Clifford.
David Clifford, Paul Geaney Killian Spillane.
I feel Geaney's best position is at full.
Adrian to help out at mid-field. Paudie great engine great passer.

Good performance and good win by Kerry; terrible night. Dublin were made look very disjointed.

My first time seeing Dan O'Donoghue play, impressed, although he's lighter than I had imagined. Dylan Casey, good to see him blooded too, could be pushing hard for a FB line spot come championship. White to probably replace Begley.

Barry and O'Connor need to be allowed play more often together at MF to rightly bed in. Barry needs continued exposure to this level.

I don't think there's a full 70 minutes in either of the Spillane's: 40-50-minute men. I often mixed up Burns and Moynihan before (similar strut to the two of them), to find out tonight from Marty Morrissey that they're first-cousins! That answered my dilemma.

Overall, things looking really promising in the Kingdom. Just keep the head, and motor on. No need to get too carried away, though. A big league win over Tyrone last year didn't really amount to such a big win at all last year.

Oh you are right indeed Forever. Happy with the win but only one point in 2nd half is nt great regardless of conditions. Dublin also missing alot of their best players and we got the luck too on the night. However I'm happier with an improved performance from Kildare game.

Ya that would be the best forward line we could hope for I'd say it's great to see Seánie O'Shea back at centre forward where he belongs, Paudie Clifford is a great bit of stuff.

Kerry gave a exhibition of kick passing in first half. Kerry has the boys playing the kerry way. None of this basketball likes the dubs. The dubs are great athletics but lack natural football of kerry lads. I'm predicting sam wont be long returning to his home. :)

Great atmosphere saturday though we were let down by small minority kerry supporters with english chants. I expect that from the dubs not our own.

Hi lad I can see what you're at, you're using my old sayings, trying to make people think I have another account, you're fooling no one.

You haven't much to be doing with yourself.

Always great to get a win against the dubs. But they were terrible so I wouldn't be getting too carried away.

Big positives were Midfield and especially Diarmuid O Connor. I still believe we would have won an All Ireland last year if he was the primary midfielder. His speed of thinking is way ahead of anyone else. His quick kick pass from the sideline ball for the goal is what created the goal. He has everything required to be a top class midfielder.

Full Back line were excellent defensively and dealt well with a few high balls very well. Half back line were great going forward but weren't tested really defensively.

Spillane put in a massive shift. He would throw himself in front of a bus for the team to be fair. Moynihan also good in both attack and defence.

Sean O Shea played as more of a worker then an out and out forward. I think rotating him between the half forward line and full forward line would be a better use of his talents. Clifford excellent even with the missed penalty. Geaney was ok, kicked 4 wides with his 2 points. His 4 wides were all from difficult angles and he needs to learn to rework it to a player in a better position.

Second half was poor but conditions were bad and Kerry had obviously switched down a few gears which is understandable.

Looking out my window in the afternoon and watching the atrocious weather conditions I felt it might be better if a ramshackled body sought the security of the stand. Accordingly, I arrived at ASP at 5.30pm approximately. I glanced at the full stand but a polite steward told me I was wasting my time, saying people had been queuing outside the grounds since 3.30pm. The best laid plans---. But of course then it dawned on me. I had taken a wrong turn some place. I realised that rather being in Austin Stack Park I had made my first trek to the Antarctic. Now, there are people who say this uninhabitable, God forsaken spot is nothing like it once was. The rains are not as torrential, the winds are not as soul destroying and as numbingly cold as they once were. Clearly, these people have not been there recently. Take it from me , this abominable outpost is as diabolically inhospitable as it ever was.

For survival, there was nothing to do but cluster as close together ,for warmth and a little shelter, as the Emperor Penguins do. Interestingly enough, there didn't appear to be any Emperor Penguins on the field of play. There were some Emperors there alright, attractively clad in a green and gold plumage. More intriguingly still, there appeared to be a lead Emperor, I suppose a King Emperor. He strutted around with the number fourteen on his back. He wandered hither and thither, taking a speculative pot shot here, a speculative pot shot there. Deep thinkers of this game feel that is not the way to do things. Flair must be subjugated in the interests of the team ethic. The way forward is step in, step out, do the hokey pokey all around. When you get hold of the parcel you pass it back and forth. You carry on interminably until you lose the parcel of course!. Ah that is not the way of King Emperors. You reach the status of King Emperor by realising from an early stage that the most profitable and effective way of propelling the ball is by use of the foot, either foot. By the way David, how is little Ogie? Any indication yet that , perhaps in twenty years, there will be another King Emperor to enthral us. It is very unlikely that I will be around to witness that spectacle. Still, how bad is it to witness one King Emperor in a lifetime.

The match was very closely contested in the early stages but in the second half of the first half Kerry dazzled. Now it did coincide with Dublin being reduced to fourteen men, still in appalling conditions it was football of a premium standard. Magnificent long range points, culminating in an exquisite goal from Dara, imaginatively created by the King Emperor. A few Dublin supporters near me were very vexed, contending that the line ball leading up to the goal should have been theirs. I don't think so. My reading of it is that in the contest for a high ball a Dublin hand flicked the ball towards the sideline and a Dublin player shepherded it out , erroneously thinking that it was a Kerry hand that last touched it. Perhaps, the television paints a different picture.

There were a few moments of worry in that first half. Dean Rock hit one in which appeared to hood wink Shane Murphy. The ball hit the crossbar/post and bounced in. I would be slow to criticise Shane. It was a goal of the fluke variety. The only thing I saw clearly in that incident was a Kerry player being floored near the goal in the build up which had me making wild use of my larynx. Interestingly, the goal was disallowed for that incident. Frequently that happens in rugby but I have never seen it before in football.

In another incident, Shane got a very strong hand to a vicious effort from one of the Dublin players.

There was another hugely worrying incident when a Dublin kick out beat the congested the midfield area, thus creating a two on one situation, which very likely would have resulted in a goal but for a wayward final pass. It must be said that Jason, our defender in the spot, played it very cool, holding his position and making the Dublin man in possession blink first, forcing him to pass the ball sooner that he wished. Once more, I felt Jason had another good match.

In spite of the fact that Dublin were going to have the aid of the elements in the second half , one felt the second half was going to be irrelevant. Kerry were playing too well and Dublin did not have the personnel to make a significant impact.

Dan O'Donoghue and Brian O'Beaghlaigh are going the the right way about cementing regular places , in the corner and on the wing respectively. Dan would need to cut out this off the ball chest slapping , getting out of control with too many players. He will eventually pick up an early yellow card or maybe a belt in the gob. This chest pushing/slapping is at a ridiculous level now and needs to be stamped out. Does anybody know its rationale.

Diarmuid was massive at midfield , being incongruously elegant in those awful conditions. The often maligned Jack Barry made a contribution as well but should not have stupidly earned a black card which, in different circumstances, could be costly.

I was delighted for Dara Moynihan. Dara has been poor since that injury last year. Perhaps his good form for MUTK and last night will restore his confidence and ensure that once more we will see that busy bee with the sting.

People here will justifiably claim that an almost full strength Kerry team played a makeshift Dublin team and it is only February and therefore not too much can be deduced from last night. Still, in situations like these I am reminded of the words of a very wise man. He said nothing happens in the past. Nothing happens in the future . It is all about the now. The now is the only thing. For the next days I will take his advice and luxuriate in the now. I invite you to join me.

P.S. If you don't hear from me again it means I reached the South Pole but did not make it back. Such is the fate of crazy explorers.

Well lads.. Looking forward to coming down to your neck of the woods in 2 weeks time.. Hopefully we can produce a game like the 2019 super eights game and Donegal can be competitive.. With Michael out we need couple of other players to stand up. In fairness to Michael Langan he's been doing that.. But looking forward to a good game as it always is between kerry and Donegal.. Slán abhaile
