Dublin Senior Football 2022

No moaning about refs or media coverage😜. What are our prospects for 2022?

Nice to see some of the players relaxing and taking it easy on social media. Take a break and recharge for next year.

We are a bit in thr dark regarding 2022 fixtures but if we assume that it’s back to normal I wouldn’t have half the starting 15 from the mayo match starting a game before Patrick’s day. I would be subbing them in OK, but the three who were plainly not match fit two weeks ago would be given extended leave.

We have plenty players to get us somewhere in the league and first matches in leinster and the dead rubber super eight. I still belive the 15 we put out last week is the enst starting 15 in the country, we just have to give them a shed load of rest. I’d be telling them to mind the diet a bit but no exercise at all in the three weeks after their club campaign finishes, and take it from there. Some of the players can be looking at 5 months off for the first time in a long time which they need.

Our fabled bench came about becuase new players shifted older ones onto it. We need to be able to get two or three players who can allow dessie to bench a quarter of the current starting 15 in “secondary” matches but bring them on in each of those matches.

For all the preiae mayo got (deserved) even though the GPS and the vests were telling the backroom the grim news the fact is that even blowing it out of their holes we almost beat mayo. Fully fit and a few new faces (or not so new) I’d expect us to be favourites next year. Depending on the semi pairings (I expect us to get that far at least and directly) I’d expect us to be in the final, and it could be mayo…

A good run in Leinster would do me.

You must be looking for the managers gig …

Preserve our Division 1 status would do me.

We have but one priority and one only:

O’Byrne Cup respectability.

We have not won this since 2017 and are now third on the all time list behind OBC specialists K**e and Mh.

Have to start with baby steps

Maybe I should amend my thoughts to hoping we retain senior status or don’t end up in the new Pat Spillane Cup :blush:

We need to get back to the bottom rung of the ladder. Can’t run before we can crawl

Lads lads, let’s not get carried away. If Dessie can get a new maor uisce in that will do me :wink:

Yeah but the maor uisces at underage are not as good as the ones they’ll be replacing. Very poor reutn.
