Read a post somewhere that said Mayo's odds to win on Saturday evening were the same as the odds on Dublin to win 10 in a row.

I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Dublin a really long 4/6 to win in 2021 LOL

I don't suppose anyone knows what the quarter and semi final pairings are yet?

Dublin are already odds-on at 1/2 to make it a magnificent seven next year while the odds on 10 All-Ireland titles in-a-row have shortened from into 11/2 from 8/1.

I think Mayo were 4/1 before the final.... maybe 5/1 so not to far away.

That’s crazy tho.

As far as I know there are no Super 8s in 2021 but there is a backdoor and this ludicrous Token Cup for the Division 3 and Division 4 counties

I'm not quite sure how the qualifiers will work

Following the traditional pattern for semi-finals which was restablished in 2020, that would mean the Leinster Champions and Connacht champions would be on a collision course in the All-Ireland semi-final 

2020 was a Leinster v Ulster year so 2021 would be Leinster v Connacht

I understand the logic of why they wanted to introduce it (i.e more kick passing) but it's totally out of sync with the tempo of the rest of the game and should be scrapped.

There is no denying that Dublin are still in a very good place and will more than likely retain the All Ireland again for 2021 but as good a side as they are, they will most definitely feel the losses of the likes of Connolly, Andrews, MDMA, McCaffery, Mannion etc.

You simply cannot just replace those named above and it will hurt Dublin, no question.

The standards these lads set, the experience they have, the level they operate at in training even when they're not in the first 15 etc all of that stuff has to be factored in.

You'd have to expect Cluxton, McCarthy, Cooper, McMahon, McManamon etc all to be nearing retirement soon too and the cycle will hopefully end for a few years at least.

Dublin have turned bog average players like MDMA and O'Gara into top class players. With the system they have an more skillful players coming through from underage I've no doubt they'll have no trouble replacing them with even better players. Come summer next year I fully expect Dublin to have won 8 in a row and be going for 9 the next campaign.

O'Gara is an absolutely dreadful footballer, robbed a living and should have been nowhere near the Dublin panel. Offered nothing bar physicality and an outlet when Dublin needed to go direct.

MDMA was far from ever being average, one of the best ball carriers in the modern era.

They were both donkeys turned into race horses. I'll next forget O'Gara point shooting displace away to Laois in the league. If he was managed by any other county there's not a hope in hell he'd develop those skills.

What skills? 

Being incapable of soloing a ball at pace, missing ridiculously easy point scoring opportunities on a regular basis etc? 

He was blessed that Dublin lacked a bully boy type full forward over the last 10 years, he just happened to offer something different than the rest sheer brute strength and physicality. 

In terms of technical ability, he wouldn't have gotten on many county sides if he was to be judged on that alone.

Plan for this year was that intercounty would be done by June and then clubs after that. I reckon if they can get a championship in from April - July and then give the rest of the years to the clubs they'd take it. Last year it was what, early October to mid December?

had a good few on board when watching it yesterday and I might be biased in saying this, but didn't think the ref was great. I know it was the umpires call but pulling Dublin up for a player being inside the "D" when he clearly was outside when it was kicked was a terrible call. That said, the ref didn't stop the dubs trying to defend giving up 1-18 is worrying.

Terrible tragedy with the young boy. The senior game was fiercely competitive nonetheless. Armagh would I believe have won it if their regular goalkeeper Blaine Hughes had been playing. The occasion was too much for the lad who came in for him and soft goals were conceded.

I dont know why, but this has really stuck a chord with me today beyond the obvious of a young lad losing his life tragically. I've no connection to monaghan. But when I read the news this morning I got a horrible feeling in the pit of my stomach and its been on my mind all day.

Poorest half of football I have seen from Dublin in the championship since 2014. Very devoid of thought, and seemed relieved to revert to squeezing the game, as they have done in major matches in the past. Although the bench kept getting referenced, missing Cluxton, Mannion, Small, McCaffrey, McCauley, McManamon, adding to the departures since 2019 is taking its toll, especially when it has come to accelerating in games.

On paper it reads as a six point win, but it was flattering.

A little spark from Dublin yesterday. Certainly superior to the second half against Meath, and I thought there was obviously moments when the decision making was just that cut above (Scully calling a mark in the second half to help Dublin move out to five points).

I still think Kerry will generally be favourites, but this often discussed 'Dublin Decline' is perhaps hyped a little. The bench is undoubtedly less deep, but the team on the pitch is still handling matches well. Kildare had men behind the ball at most points, and Dublin still scored 20.

I'd imagine Dublin took leinster for granted and have tailered their training to peak for the semi final. Wouldn't be surprised if they beat Mayo by 6+.

I'm not sure really, don't think this Dublin team is up to the levels of the past. Big players like McCaffrey and Cluxton gone, bench looking very weak, players like McCarthy way past their prime. I think they'll be beaten this eyar.

Robbie McDaid is the only one I can think of off the top of my head, and potentially Kevin McManamon. There has been a huge change in players over the past 18 months, most obviously around the forwards, but as Shedite says, Cluxton, and McCaffrey are huge losses. I would add Paul Mannion to that list too.

The bench isn't nearly as deep as it once was. But what interests me is that I think in Leinster teams set-up not to be beaten by Dublin, and as a result stifled them getting inside. The one concern being the second half against Meath where Dublin scored something like three points in regulation time.

Mayo will be a lot more fluid in the way they play, and attack minded, but that will open things up for Dublin a bit more too, and what is forgotten is that Dublins wins have just been by sub 10 in Leinster. Its not as though the games have been especially close.

Interesting that Dublin contested but lost both the U20 and minor Leinster titles this year. A more damning stat is that in both of those games they only managed to score 3 points over the 60 minutes.
There must be a lack of scoring forwards coming through

Definitely not playing as well this year but that was always going to be the case with a good few walking away. I've no concerns over our forward line with the likes of Costello, Kilkenny, Scully, O'Callaghan and Rock still there. The backline obviously isn't going to be the same now that Cluxton isn't there and that was always going to be case give how he marshalled it.
 
Wouldn't have thought Dublin would be 4/11 to beat Mayo given they seem to be much better form, however if Mayo have a repeat of the first 35 min against Galway the next day (or against Kerry if both win) then game could be over by half time given the forward lines on both teams.

If Kildare had a few more Daniel Flynn's they might have got a bit closer to the Dubs, you could see he was causing them all sorts of trouble every time he got the ball, i think Mayo with their attacking threat will cause serious trouble for the dubs but i can't see them winning.

Mayo without Cillian is a massively diffeent prospect. The amount of scores he gets is incredible, the amount he sets up is equally as incredible. So it's hard to see us turning anyone over from here.

All that being said, Mayo's transition has been massively impressive. I really wasn't sure that blitz was still in us, but after what we did to Galway in the second half, it looks like that has been sustained. Incredible when you consider the amount of youth it there and the amount of the spine of the team we lost over this last 12 months.

I think Mayo can beat Dublin, but Kerry look head and shoulders above everyone at the minute

Think Mayo have benefited from the retirements last year as it’s given younger players a chance now. Even the media circus with some of them retiring was a bit too much. Agree with a previous poster Mayo could well beat Dublin like they did in 2006 and 2012 and then disappoint in the final.

It's good for those players absolutely. But would Mayo be stronger with David Clarke, Chris Barrett and Keith Higgins?

Absolutely 100% yes

Was needed big time IMO. I was critical of Mayo for not introducing more young players over the past decade. Might have been done out of necessity over the last 18 months but definitely seems to have sparked more life in the team across the pitch.

In fairness, the 2016 U21 and the U20s from 2 years ago are the teams that were expected to have breakthrough players, and that's where they have come from.

Any idea when tickets go on sale? It's going to be utter carnage trying to get one.

Club only I'd say wallsy. Feeding off scraps then.

Can imagine this will be the case.
Assuming they will only be sold in pods also as they have been up until now.

Young and new players often play without the fear of past problems. If Mayo were still relying on the bulk of the team from 2017 I'd back Dublin to win. But this is different.

I'm expecting a close game. Dublin have done enough so far to keep competition in Leinster at a comfortable distance without racking up the scores we're used to. Meath definitely gave them a scare in the 2nd half but don't think Dublin were ever at risk of losing. Ignoring Mayo's first couple of games and Galway showed up their defence in the first half before being destroyed completely in the second half. 
 
I'm hoping for a great game but could anything can happen with Dublin v Mayo as we've seen before.

Mayo's defence for the two Galway goals was shocking. Dublin will punish them severely. 

Mayo will be doing well to only concede one goal to them imo.

The matches in recent years have always been close and no reason to believe this SF will be any different.

I got Cork/Kilkenny tickets today for the hurling, back to the nightmare of of 5 hours on the portal refreshing. They might have the football up next week when/if there's retuns from clubs.

Same re Waterford v Limerick tickets. Long wait but came good in the end yesterday.

I could agree with you but then we'd both be wrong.

Did Dublin not beat them comfortably in the final last year and by 8 points in the semi recently?

Unfortunately I doubt there will be any returns. I know Westport is massively oversubscribed and I'd imagine that is replicated all over the county. I'd also imagine it's true of Dublin clubs.

Ya got to love the bandwagon though! 3500 allowed in for the Leitrim game in Castlebar and absolutely no issue getting tickets for that.

To be fair wallsy 35euro for a terrace ticket was f**king scandalous. I don't blame people for not going.
