    Default GAA 2014 Football Championship.

    I am a little suprised that there is no thread here for this. Now that Dublin have their first real test on Sunday, we will see how they fare up. The only worry I can see this year for Dublin is that they will have to beat a tough Monaghan side, and then Donegal and escape without any big players getting injured. I would not bet on any other team this year of winning the championship.

    Other mentions this year would have to go to Mayo, it seemed that they didnt come out of second year yet this year, got a feeling that they are holding back so far at least. Donegal looked great in ulster, and if any team can cause an upset its them, they will have to contain a rampant Dublin forward line for a full 70 though if they have any chance of causing an upset.

    Maybe theres not a top gear in mayo? Theres only so many times u can go to the well. Its hard to see dublin been beaten this year, but time will tell. I think it will be a repeat of last years final.

    Maybe there is not, but for the last few years in most of their games they had extra gears apart from the final, it was their worst performance by far of the year.

    The Kerry midfield was shocking against Galway, and they seemed like a one man show, so Mayo should come through that one, to see them beating Dublin would be great, do not think that this is their year either.

    So much for the dubs toughest test so far against a tough monaghan side. After 25 mins it was 3pts each. Dublin win by 17pts. A rout. How wil donegal cope with them n the semi final?

    It all depends on how Donegal set up, and if they can keep Dublin goals out for the game. Something similar will happen to Donegal if they go 4-5 points behind, if they can get into the last quarter in a tight game though, its somewhere Dublin have not been in a while, it will probably be their only chance. It will be "puke" football of the highest order.

    Kerry-Mayo should be a great game, both open attacking teams, should be a great game for a neutral to watch. Mayo should shade it though if they manage to mark J'OD out of the game.

    Mayo vs Kerry on Sunday, really looking forward to this one. Unfortunately Sunday will be dismal, the weather will ensure that it is a slog, and you would expect the physially stronger team to win this one. Mayo to win by 3-4 points.

    I would agree with you bobten that mayo will win by a few points. I think that mayo have better backs than kerry, and they may be able to keep the kerry fowards at bay. But if kerry can keep the mayo half back line from coming foward it will be a big help to them.
