I watched it on TV, but I checked the other links and it was on the second one. I can't use the likes of Sopcast as I'm on a Mac. I did use sopcast in the past though and found it very good

Jeez....I have to say we looked awesomely strong today.....a 15 point win in a final? Hardly good in the overall scheme of things but given the Dubs had no U21's involved including the likes of Costello and McCaffrey...? Looking set fair for another tilt at Sam in 2014.

Awesome display by the Dublin under-21s today. Fair play to Roscommon for giving it a bit of a rattle in the second half though, no one wants to see a young side totally walloped.

4-in-a-row in Leinster(football) today.............looking reaaly good. I have huge faith in the management team. They have us so fit, so focussed and so clinical...all the time playing great football.
It will take a very good team playing well to stop us(but we're still beatable I think under the wright/wrong circumstances)...unfortunately a lot of the pundits want to hand us Sam now out of expediency. :roll:

Will playing very little football, and against absolute rubbish teams, be a worry? Who could stop the Dubs now anyway? Kerry (maybe under some very, very lucky circumstances)? Can't begrudge such success / dominance when the brand of football is so good.

In truth the Dubs could have done with Meath giving them a decent game. Meath were desperate though, nowhere near the level of last year and the game was done by half-time.

Dublin will play either Monaghan, Armagh or Kildare in the quarters. Can't see it being Kildare so they will finally come up against a tough Northern team with a blanket defence. That should be a strong test and if they get though that, they'll most likely have an even tougher Northern team with a blanket defence in Donegal in the semi's.

So far everyone had gone man on man with Dublin and the results have shown what a suicidal tactic that is. They'll have to come up with a different plan to beat the Ulster teams and that will be more revealing of their true standard than the merry waltz they had through Leinster.

Oh and suisse would have loved the sporting applause the Hill gave to Meath's consolation goal yesterday. Surely the deepest cut? :wink:

When was the last time Dublin played an Ulster team at the top of their game in the championship? Not that I think it'll matter who they play this year. They look to be well ahead of any of their rivals and only a very bad day at the office coupled with a perfect day for the opposition will stop them IMHO.

Probably Donegal in the semi in 2011. They did struggle badly with McGuinness's ultra-defensive set-up but they got there in the end. Dublin are a far better team than they were then though.

Outside of Ulster, where the standard hasn't been particularly high, none of the favourites have had a tough run so far.

Derry tried the blanket defence in the league final and were hammered. Monaghan and Donegal are better teams but I'd doubt Monaghan's ability to get enough scores to beat Dublin. Donegal will be the biggest challenge.

Dublin looked very very good. A friend of mine called me to say that he couldn't see anyone beating us. Nothing strange you might think, except he's from Cork and you know you're good when that shower of begrudgers are complimenting you.

Meath will beat Armagh.

I really thought Meath had a decent chance on Sunday. I was getting ready to fake quote you and Nelly again. Devastated I couldn't abuse the quote system this time :D
