‘Dublin of the past will bury that Tyrone team with 15 plus yesterday’


It was a very welcome result for Dessie Farrell’s Dubin yesterday with his first Allianz League win last across the board at the fifth ask.

The fact that the game against Tyrone, the team that made them all-Ireland champions, and in Omagh to boot, should give the Blues boys extra motivation as Farrell tries to mastermind a great run great.

But for the legendary Monaghan watching Dick Clerkin, there are still some victory mitigating factors to be considered when we face off in the final matchup.

“A couple of things,” Clerkin pointed out on the latest Throw-In GAA podcast affiliated with Allianz.

“They played with a strong wind in the back in the first half and it was perfect. If you are finding the cause and you are trying to solve your problem soon then nothing might want to keep working.

“So you can see them putting the whole press on Tyrone, who really can’t get out of his half. They played against the wind and Dublin brought that energy and intensity so with that it will always be a great first half for them to try and make a bit of a statement.

“Yesterday Tyrone was very poor and they must be very nervous looking ahead. They might say ‘Oh, what about last year, that was fine.’ Well, last year was last year. You have no unknown quantity and all the rest you had last year.

“Tyrone is very, very average and very undisciplined and that is a trend throughout tournament games when it comes to losing to the man. They want to be careful about that. “

With games against Donegal and what could prove to be a relegation penalty shootout against Monaghan, whose win over Declan Bonner’s side has raised their hopes of survival, the door is at least for now. opened up for Dubs.

However, while there are also positives to be made, what Clerkin sees is still a long way from what he has come to expect from the Dublin sides he has seen over the past decade.,

“That being said, Dublin did what they had to do. They came, brought a level of energy and the score then came, he explained.

“They didn’t bring that intensity and often had the ball in the right area of ​​the pitch for the scorers to do what we knew they could do in good scoring positions.

“We saw against Armagh and Kerry and the other teams, they had a hard time, it was slow ball in the strikers, they played under pressure or played with a covered defence. They played from the back while yesterday they played from the front.

“It forced Tyrone (back) to a man who failed for most of the game between a black card in the first half and (Pádraig) Hampsey having to leave the field early in the second half. The cards that have fallen are very good for Dublin to do what they have to do.

“So I give you a little warning because Tyrone is very poor and very undisciplined. Dublin only scored two points in the second half with an extra and they are two points close together.

“There’s still a bit to go, it’s not old Dublin. The Dublin of old will bury that Tyrone team with 15 plus points yesterday.

“Tyrone could have had a goal in the second half and that could go down in the last 10 minutes. They didn’t, they saw it and they’ll be happy to win. “ ‘Dublin of the past will bury that Tyrone team with 15 plus yesterday’
