    Some result and crazy game in Cork today.
    I though I was watching a group of imposters in Kerry Jerseys in the first half.

    I guess they couldn't cope with the harsh weather conditions.
    I really thought they were going to take Sam of Dublin this year.

    Dublin/ Donegal/Mayo.

    Donegal a good outside bet.

    Can see Mayo doing it this year. Given the dynamic this year regarding the format, it really is a lot more open. As well as that, given Dublin are under new management they might not be the same machine as they have been for the past decade. Don’t be surprised to see Tipp really pushing Kerry in that Munster final. As for Ulster, Cavan look up for the fight and could definitely take it to Donegal in Ulster, provided that Armagh and Down are defeated of course.

    Are Armagh as poor as they looked against Derry. I expected them to win comfortably

    They’re managed by a narcissistic pragmatist. Of course they are. Amazed he’s lasted as long in that job.

    Unfortunately yes. Some great attacking players even in defence but The manager seems to prefer the * sideways / backwards slow it down tactics.

    Rian O'Neill went to my school, great player. Jamie Clarke is easily one of the best forwards in Ulster on his day but yes, as you say, McGeeney insists on that mind numbingly dull, ultra defensive football. The forwards get limited opportunity to express themselves.

    Just absolutely disgraceful performance by Armagh today.

    Looks like my Meath to beat Dublin prediction might not come through.

    Tipp Munster football champions again after 85 years. Just over 100 years to the day of * Sunday. Fairytale. Big thing for my family as my grandfather was a Tipp footballing man from Grangemockler, the same parish and club as Michael Hogan. Just sad he couldn’t see this day. Up the Premier!

    Unreal the number of upsets in the All Ireland Championship so far. Hopefully thats it for this season but wow Tipperary winning a first Munster title in 85 years and followed by Cavan winning a first Ulster title in 23 years. No change for us though thankfully in Leinster as Dublin really put on a clinic against Meath. Looks like a Dublin v Mayo final is most likely now unless Cavan and Tipperary can cause more big upsets in the Semi-finals.

    Be amazing to see a Cavan v Tipp final but even in this most bizarre of all years I can't see anything but another Dublin title.. a few people were writing Dublin off the start of the season more in hope I think. This will probably be the easiest title of six in a row...

    Dublin ladies v Armagh ladies was a very good game also.
