I'm away in London this weekend. But somehow got offered a ticket. Expected them to be like golddust with it being 3 well supported teams along with Dublins huge support

Initial tickets sold out in a couple hours, but a load went on sale yesterday. Though they're now sold out as well, I think.

Connelly's a class player, but he can be some fucking idiot

Would have been madness if we threw that away

Connolly is a beast, but he needs to keep the head

Probably the best forward in the country this year but he will continue to get lads annoying him if he continues to react. Kerry will be physical with him too.

But it's Dublin's all Ireland now, none of the other 3 can touch them

Mayo were muck again. Dreading the final to be honest. Can see it being another embarassment

Yeah, Dublin or Kerry would annihilate them if they played like that

Game turned on its fucking head. By far the better team for 25vmins. Fantastic fielding, Kerry couldn't cope with our running, should have had a goal but for a bad individual decision. And yet we were taking shots from miles out, they kept themselves in it, and then implosion

C'mon the Dublin of the second half

Unreal. Only Kerry could have stolen that away from us. Restricted them to 5 points second half in the end. Drug ourselves out of a hole of our own making

What are you trying to say? ;)

Best game I've been at in a few years. I thought Dublin had ran out of gas & ideas after about 60 minutes. Cluxton has become the weak link. Mayo should be targeting that in the final.

That was one of the stranger finals I've seen. We looked so slow and labored, but I'm sure weather has something to do with that.
Felt sorry for Mayo Little. 22 mins and no actual score from Dublin.
If Connolly had just kept the head at the death, we would be champions.

I think a repeat is fair

Dublin were blessed really. They have been the best team in the country for years but today was poor, a better team would have punished them. That was Mayo's chance. Brogan, Connolly & mcmenamin, heros the last few seasons, won't be as bad in 2 weeks.

It was probably a bit of both, you have to give them some credit for stopping Dublin playing.
