Andy had a good year, but he’s getting on.
Cillian has been out of sorts for a fair bit now. The mantle of Captain must weigh heavily on him. Can’t be trusted with pressure kicks.
Boyle is a 50 minute man at best, but decent for those 50.
Higgins would make the Dublin squad alright.
Of the rest, Loftus sticks out, the rest are middle of the road at best, with more than one overrated.
If you had one more player of the quality of Keegan, not just one player. He is probably Mayos once-in-a-generation-you-get-one-this-good plyaer right now.
On paper, Dublin should be handing out double digit hammerings to Mayo, a la this years league fixture. Then again, games are not won on paper. Watching games between the two, there seems to be nothing in it, then you see the dog’s dinner Mayo make of putting away considerably weaker opposition, and what we do to the like’s of Tryone. It’s a head scratcher, to be sure.
I’m looking forward to Castlebar in the spring - I hope youse cut the grass this time - I’d like to actually see the ball this year.
