Dublin Senior Football Championship A (SFC A) 2018

My issue with it is that if he (or anyone else) transfers into a vlub of that size and plays, he will be preventing a very good, home-grown player from playing Senior A HC for his club. And who is to say that the player left out might not, otherwise, develop into a player who could challenge for a spot on the county team?

Lee Chin is 100% not joining crokes, I’m fairly certain this rumour started as a joke and has unfortunately grown legs.


#1831

If he did he would no longer be Lee Chin off his parents.


#1832

A lot.


#1833

Bit wary about building Kilmacud up after yesterday but surely they can see off a club with just 22 players from half a village that has just a Centra, half a pub, no hairdressers, a scratch card shop and a multi million farm machinery dealership.


#1834

I presume you’re in the wrong thread and that’s a quote from (insert name here) bitter fake journalist/expert commentator/ex-Kerry player/coach talking about whatever county team is playing against Dublin that week?


#1835

In fairness it’s not that big.


#1836

Mullinalaghta are handy enough, they held Vincents to four or five points a few years ago and they beat Rhode en route to the final this year. Crokes should be better, but it’s not such a sure thing. I suspect with both teams playing to their peak Crokes are five points or so better, but that is a small enough margin that can be overcome with bad weather or good tactics.


#1837

You’re dead right. These boys beat Rhode, and even past their best, no one would underestimate that shower.


#1838

Terrible decision to give a black card to Flatman


#1839

Totally correct in my view. He pulled the man down. Is that not what the black card is for? Poor skills, lost the ball, lazy tackle. Crokes are being given their fill of it.


#1840

I agree it was a black card


#1841

A lot of play acting and diving around by the Longford players. Kilmacud not at the pitch of this game. Very poor so far.

Black card was correct decision.


#1842

Never a black card. The Mullinalaghta player grabbed Flatman;s arm and threw himself to the ground. A dive if anything.


#1843

The rule is to pull the player to the ground, which he didn’t do. He pulled him back and the Mullinaghta player threw himself on the ground, different thing altogether although the ref fell for it.


#1844

Ah would you stop. Crokes need to get themselves together. Only one team in it at the moment.


#1845

We’ll agree to disagree.


#1846

Mansion is going to get himself sent off if he keeps carrying on the way he is


#1847

Your right about Crokes. But not the black card


#1848

These lads are using a very physical approach to stifle Crokes and its working …
