      Unfortunately Monaghan left it behind them.
      Dublin will demolish Tyrone in the final just as they did last year (12pts) in the FS.

      1. Frilly Keane

        Have ’em exactly at that Tops
        +12
        Still eff all money
        But shur’ it keeps a bitta interest going t’ hang on ta

      Nordie bogball, puke football, whatever… It’s a shame such an awful team to watch made it to the final.

      1. Bertie Blenkinsop

        I actually didn’t think it was puke football yesterday, I thought they were just two relatively poor teams for an AI SF.

        1. Frilly Keane

          Maybe
          But they made the Semis under the same framework as everyone else in this Super 8 carry on

          1. Bertie Blenkinsop

            I’m not saying they didn’t deserve to be there, I’m saying they tried to play more expansive football but weren’t capable.

          2. Frilly Keane

            But they never were

            Yet fair play t’ em
            They’re in an All Ireland
            No one
            Not even themselves
            Would ah’ called that last May

    If ever there was a team that gladly plays the part of comedy villian, it’s tyrone
    Even the ABD’s don’t want them to win

  2. Bertie Blenkinsop

    Very nervous about this one.
    Seems to be a lot of complacency in (some) of the Dublin crowd, have they never seen Rocky 3?

    1. rotide

      I’ve lost the run of myself after seeing the demolition of Galway. I honestly thought it would be a lot closer than it was.

      Still, It’s entirely possible that Tyrone can Death Of Football the dubs off the park, but if that happens the Moral Highground awaits

      1. ReproButina

        Dublin have already beaten Tyrone 2-13 to 1-11 and 1-14 to 0-14 this year. Both games were in Tyrone.

        This, disappointingly, is going to be a completely one sided final.

  3. realPolithicks

    Dublin will just kick their rear ends in the final, It’s hardly worth their while showing up.

    Will there be an “Up for the match” on rte? In the unlikely event of a Tyrone win what about the traditional broadcast from that nights reception?Given Mickey Hartes fallout with rte.

    1. Frilly Keane

      Dunno
      But since he’s all about praying being more important prep that training
      I wouldn’t be surprised if they’re all over the Papal Up for the Mass

      1. Bonkers

        There had better be an Up for the Match, it’s Grainne Seoiges remaining RTE gig and the only time we get to see her all year.

    I have to concede that Dublin are The Dubs, nonetheless Tir Eoghain Abu. In ’95 – Peter Canavan’s point wasn’t on the floor – oh and Charlie Redmond wandered on the pitch for five minutes after being sent off – the Dubs with 16 men (the ref included).
    I’ve got nothing but a lot love for Croke Park. My dad played there in ’57 against Louth – I know? Louth won in ’57 and ’58. I went to every All-Ireland final with my dad – he threw me over the turn-stile when I was a kid – I sat on the steps of the Hogan Stand and my county weren’t playing. My adopted county was Kerry, Jack O’Shea was my hero. I met Pat Spillane in his bar, with my dad (RIP) 20 yearsish ago. Pat was great, but – he really didn’t like the whole Tyrone thing. Frank McGuigan gave him the shudders

    Peter Canavan wasn’t that bad either

    Anyhoos – I was just born in Dublin – I was raised in Tyrone – Come on Tyrone!
    That’s where Shayna is!
