We have a lot going for us this year. Up to recently there was a shortage of forward power and we depended on one or two marksmen for our scoring such as Colin Corkery or James Masters. Teams such as Kerry very easily neutralised these marksmen and when this happened we were bereft of scoring options. We know have a wealth of forward power.

There is also a ruthlless physicality and toughness that is required to win an all Ireland. For the past few years Nicolas Murphy has been pissing blood for days after having his kidneys pulverised by Daragh O Shea (A Very dirty footballer) in the championship. Pierse O Neill is more than a match for Darragh in the physical stakes with the result that Darragh now usually gets sent off. He apparently does not like the taste of his own medicine.

This team is very strong down the centre with a few Niall Cahalane like mutants such as Shields, Canty and Pierse O Neill who as well as being fantastic footballers will take no prisoners and have a driving will to win.
I also think that this Manager is lucky--so roll on Kerry
