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.

I suppose Jack feels he needs to create a good cohesion in the team therefore he's not wasting his time (which is short) on blooding new players.

Jack felt we had the team to win the allireland last but he thinks it was bad tactics that done for us, so he's not ripping up the blueprint so to speak just adding a few tweaks.

No disrespect to the rest of the Munster football teams as they're all pretty much doing as well as they can but we'll get no real challenge in Munster before the quarter final which leaves us going in cold so Jack has to make the most of the league to get the lads battle hardened for the allireland quarter finals.

I know the above might sound cockey but I'm only going on the past years results.

By the way limerick are doing great in div3, I hope ye keep it going and get promoted.

He probably wouldn't do it under the old system. It'd be harder to maintain it up until September than July. It is becoz the championship is coming on so soon that I think Jack is focusing on ironing out the defensive weaknesses that cost Kerry in 2021 and 2019. Let's not forget that in those years, Kerry was just a kick of the ball away from landing Sam. So, Jack's policy is generally sticking with the players that are already there. He has however, brought in Dan O'Donoghue and Dylan Casey, both masterful defenders at club level in Kerry. Kerry also has a few injuries, such as David Moran and Joe O'Connor, so that limits selection alternations a bit too.

Ya Billy Lee is doing a great job with Limerick as is Colm Collins with Clare, Cork will be lucky not to get religated at this stage, Tipp footballers have fallen off a cliff unfortunately as well, I don't know.

Replying To kerry4sam21:  "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."
You are very sneaky. You are trying to pretend to be a decent Kerry poster that posts on the Kerry home forum. Why would you do that? That poster wants it known he is not you!

Do you think Fitzbiggion or Ryan will get a run in league? Shane Murphy kickouts have been impressive so far.

I wish that posters would discontinue this childish, and irritating, trend on the site. Stick to football matters and not "I said", and "you said", but "you are not who you would have us think you are". Who cares who anyone is as long as they have something to contribute or to open for discussion. Nothing constructive in these posts.

For clarification he took the full match report given by an esteemed poster on the Kerry GAA forum and passed it off as his own. Stupid and needless behaviour and he is rightly being called out on it.

And he thought that he'd get away with it? What era does he think that he's living in?

Anyway, we know he's a Kildare supporter. He's let that much slip on that forum. That's why I asked him if the match report was from Ballybofey (the report that he lifted from someone else). He must be very p*ssed off with Jack O'C departing Kildare in the way he did. So, he's on he now tormenting good Kerry folk.

But he's been caught out.
