A well experienced Donegal team will be a very very honest tough test
Unfortunately under age games need to be on TV before a lot of people get interested.
By 6 o clock this evening this thread will be multiples the length it is now.
Those Irish Times previews can be very poor. Previewing it from a Dublin point of view and not mentioning Basquel's availability or lack thereof for instance is a big miss. It makes you wonder what they are missing on other counties that you wouldn't know so well.
Having been up in Armagh on Monday, it's going to take a real step up in performance for us to get over the line. I was very impressed by Donegal and how they played although a step up in the level of the opposition may lead to a change in tactics as highlighted above.
Con gone to a black card
I hope Con wasnt getting lessons from Dermo !!. Dubs defence very impressive so far. Kicking nice scores.
Ref is a joke. How in the name of god was that only a yellow?
Both commentators are highly biased. Every Dublin tackle deserves a black card in their opinion but high tackles from Donegal should only merit yellow cards.
What was he thinking??
Basquel moving well.
Working very hard, could do with another score or two to push home their dominance.
What do these Donegal lads have to do to get a red card
Why can nobody kick a point from 40 yards any more? (Metres. Whatever!)
Good half from Dublin, better team so far not reflected on the scoreboard though. Hopefully kick on in the second. Transition from defence to attack very good in patches, need to see more of that.
Donegal did not score for 27 mins. They are still only a goal behind. The referee is clearly biased. We need to be very careful here. He'll give us another black or red card if he can.
Donegal look pretty leggy and it's there for Dublin if they retain there composure . It's hard to see Donegal being stronger in the last 10ubs after a game last Monday . Con is a huge loss though
Great response to Donegal's quick start to the 2nd half. Our lads look very composed on the ball and as TLR says, Donegal look leggy.
Howard linking up play well and being direct.
Agreed about Donegal looking tired, and there's goals against them if going direct
Referee is destroying this game.
Think commentators and referee are related . Or they all go to the same optician .
Dublin we're 8/11 to win this at half time. Didn't have the balls to steam in.
