    All sound reason and good judgement points to a comfortable Kerry triumph but you never know. Those plucky corkonians are a spiteful bunch and for what they lack in ability they’ll more than make up for in dirty play and cynical swarm tactics. The delightful Billy Morgan will see to that.

    I'd have to hope Kerry, but Cork gave us a very good game in Killarney.

    Kerry have a couple more tough games under their belt since then, so hopefully that can make the difference. Should be a good one. The Munster Final lacked a bit of bite, which should come out Sunday week.

    Kerry are the most cynical team in the country and have the highest "professional foul" tally in the game. There wasnt much of the swarm tactics at play by Cork against Meath in the semi-final or the Munster final in Killarney... remember that little "professional foul" in the Munster Final that should have been a penalty for Cork... but the ref played advantage... could have been a different story if the penalty was given.
    All said though... I just hope its a close game. Croker hasnt been kind to us in the past against Kerry, and if we get a ref like that plonker that sent off Corkery then we have no chance.
    Go Rebels!

    Cynical? I'd say professional!

    The most cynical and classless would have to be those jackeens. I've never seen the likes on a GAA pitch before, with all their verbals.

    I told the Kerry keeper after the Munster Final that he was lucky that it was the GAA he was playing and not soccer, and he swore blind that he simply tripped.

    Anyone out there with a spare ticket?

    I worry slightly about kerry’s midfield. I can see Donaghy being drafted in at various stages. Griffin struggling for fitness and I guarantee you Nicholas Murphy has a knee in the back lined up for Daragh (can’t complain too much about that if it happens – what goes around comes around). Defo Daragh’s last game regardless.
