You have answered the question. Their game plan all year long is simple, to train to be at a peak for the all Ireland semi and final where they must be at their fittest to stop us playing. It’s ridiculous to hear Mayo fans griping when we pint this out, their actual reply is usually “yeah well we didn’t let you play” when we say we don’t perform. You also see it from their fans in the run up to matches, all that “bucks” shite and “we won’t bend the knee to them”
You don’t see anywhere near the same amount of fans saying “we can play better football than they can, we can out score them”
So they don’t set out to. They can laugh all they like about Leinster teams seemingly going out in fear of getting a beating and how they won’t do that. Fine, don’t. The result will still be a Dublin win, because whilst they say otherwise they are going out to lose by as little as they can not going out to actually win, and the more we hear of bucks and that lard from them the more I am convinced of it.
