It’s a pure talent for literature that allows the Keepers to make one particular dodgy decision that a ref makes in a game (surprisingly it’s always one that went against them) a reason why they should never have to be reffed by that ref again. Keep them excuses coming girls.
I watched the highlights of that game back again this week, I know we made it hard for ourselves but by jaysus that was one epic last 10 minutes of a game, the last 3 scores for Dublin were all unforgettable but the pick for me was Kevin’s, to put us one up for the first time since the collapse before half-time, off his left leg from the wrong side, just after falling over, tightly marked, stupid angle. Bryan Sheehan will probably tell us he was going for a goal and miss-hit it.
And the spell of possession and play we had that led up to Dermo’s beautiful score, I can’t forget the sense of this being a great team in perfect harmony, just poised to go in for the kill. You could hear it and feel it in the crowd. Dermo’s leap as he hit the shot was a moment of perfection. Enjoy it folks, will we ever see the likes again? You never know when the last day of such things will be.
