Nice touch by the council......to become 5 again if the Dubs win.

Nah, that'd be funding rural Men's Sheds where they discuss the finer pints of cottaging and felching.

Blessed to still be in with a sniff in truth. Kerry had their number tactically and the ref had definitely read the press in relation to his past "mistakes" reffing Kerry games. A dull enough game with few reasons for any Dub to crowing this morn.

I watched a bit of that match yesterday....what's the story with not playing until on they get a result?Is it a long tradition or a money grab by the GAA?Do any other sports have this?

Replay and if level at 70 mins, then extra time. Used to be that if they were still level then it meant a second replay. Not sure if that old rule is still in place. It seldom happens that there's need for extra time anyway. Dublin and Meath played 4 times in the 1991 Leinster Final........thing of the past.

If Dublin can keep 15 men on the field on the 14th....it might be a different game....either way it'll be a busy Sat night!!

Possibly, but I'd be less optimistic about their chances. Kerry had them sussed from backs to forwards. Fenton's midfielding prowess was nullified by Moran and Barry. Thought O'Callaghan looked frustrated up front...no decent ball coming in and the big issue all over the pitch is a lack of height....built for speed and stamina. Only thing is that they have experience in the tank......had to endure a bedraggled professional Dub expert all the way home on the Luas..........he hadn't a scooby about the game....smell of fags and Olde English.

Completely choreographed, MfH. I think it's the only significant replay of the season. How our cynics and conspiracy theorists didn't see that coming is beyond me. I guess the final will be restored to its (recent) traditional slot on the 3rd Sunday of September?
