god remember when we used to have to listen to all that guff about being overhyped - despite no one really hyping the dubs, that’s all you heard from every smug culchie - the majority of whose county teams stank the place out.
Wonder what he made of the following year when we were made favourites against Kerry then they eviscerated us.
I do believe the heavy defeats of that period were the making of the backbone of the current panel. I wonder how the next generation of players, coming to prominence now and largely used to winning, will cope when they get a reversal.
Same shitheads writing it as are now writing about domination/ resources/ ‘the process’ etc etc.
Same shit-kicking swamp-donkeys lapping it up too.
Without doubt , though I do remember feeling like him at the time . The meath defeat was a black day . That really made Gilroy reevaluate things . I still think Gavin inherited a far better , battle hardened team than Gilroy did . High praise for Gilroy & what he did .
I love that word swamp donkey I feel a t shirt in that
And then the genius of Gavin in never beating our 3 major rivals by more than a point or two when they were at their best. That way they’ve never learned the lessons, always unlucky.
Didn’t help when you were the only dub in work surrounded by them
What them shower wouldn’t give for those dark times now
I wouldn’t be too worried , last time it happened we did 3 in a row
WEll done to jack! Some achievement.
I wouldn’t let that mad fella near me!!!
Well done Jack!
Was also going to follow that career path but came up 400 points short.
I can see the headlines now if he wins a game at the death for us:
“Dr. Jack revives the Dubs”
He already has , ya don’t remember
“Jack McCaffrey ended shooting the decisive point in stoppage time”
You know what I mean and he wasn’t a doctor then
Or ‘doctor doctor can’t you see I’m burning burning’ after jack scores the winner against Kerry in an Al final
Do they ever give up ,fucking whingers
