Howard was great and Dublin never looked in danger. Galway will be very good, they look a great side. We are in for a very decent final. Beating the first of the triple minor Kerry champs is no mean feat!
What's that all about ? Did he say something ?
I have massive respect for Jack O Connor for the respect he showed to Dublin after the 2011 final. He took that defeat on the chin and gave huge praise to Dublin on the day which couldn't have been easy. Just because a person is not from Dublin doesn't make them a bollox etc. They are like us just doing the best for their team. Without other counties Dublin would have no one to play!
Point out in detail where he showed us respect . I've never heard one quote from him giving us any respect for 2011. There have been several quotes since of him completely disrespecting us at every turn .I can't say I'm disappointed any team of his gets beaten . He has a massive chip on his shoulder about our current dominance with the usual jibes of money
I've often heard from Kerry folk that we never won in 2011, it was stolen. They are still upset about it!
Listen to the RTE to interview he gave immediately after the game. His respect for Dublin was unbelievable.
What team isn't upset about losing?
A lot of the time "folk" who didn't play the game have a completely different outlook to those involved at the coal face
Immediately afterwards maybe but then he started carping on about frees not given etc etc
It's amazing what you can do for the cameras in the heat of the moment and then sully it all by looking for excuses and scapegoats to blame.
Hang on. He hasn't since referred to as a fluke , that the ref was on our side and that if you took away the money we would have nothing . Respect ?
No team, but it's been a while
Time doesn't heal all pain
Respect and upset are two completely different emotions.
Anyway, back to the U21's, I think we have a very decent crop of young talent and when the retirements start to happen we should have enough on the way.
JJF says JOC is a great lad. That's good enough for me.
A great judge of character
Jaysus you can't be saying things like that here. We have nobody coming through at all. Everyone else has.
We are in a period of transition from winning to more winning
Here a interview from good aul Jack in 2012
Replacing the players with the talent isn't the problem it's replacing the leaders is going to be the problem
But here's hoping 🤞
