I am still more worried about where we are than Cork or anyone else,.
Beating, Wexford, Meath and Kildare in the fashion we did was encouraging, but looking at how Kildare and Meath have performed since makes you wonder how much we really have improved, we can only beat what is in front of us, but let’s be honest what was in front of us was extremely poor. Given the long break, I think Cork is a good draw, Mayo or Armagh after two decent games could have caught us cold
Well Dublin should continue to build on whatever momentum they’ve got from the handy wins over Wexford, Meath, Kildare and cruise into the semi-final…problem is either Kerry/Mayo should come into that semi-final more battle-hardened.
All depends on which Mayo turns up, if they turn over Kerry, they’ll be well up for another crack at the Dubs, on the other hand if Kerry beat them handy, they’ll be no better off than us going into the semi-final.
All “ifs, buts and maybes”, one thing for sure though the Dubs are in a much better position now than it looked back in Feb/Mar or this time last year.
I think Armagh or Derry could take us regardless of whether we are tested but considering Ulster is competitive its probably more likely in a quarter final. Although saying that Ulster wouldn’t necessarily prepare a team for a Dublin side at the races with a point to prove. Ill grant anyone the fact Kildare were poor, but Dublin were superb nonetheless.
Can see Cork having a go, they have nothing to lose. If we bate them by double figures, sure isn’t that what was expected, if they get a win then their bravery will be applauded.
Still fancy we will take them and it will be double figures.
