Morning all. It’s Thursday and there’s plenty more coverage out there in the run-up to Sunday’s big game.
Some of it relates to our team announcement last night but I’m not going to bother linking to those articles as they just relay information you’ve already seen. On our team selection, I think the one thing we can say for sure about it is that none of us really have a clue how we’ll set up on Sunday and who’ll be in (or out) from the start.
On the Chris for Tom swap in the team named, it could be that Tom isn’t fit enough to be included in the match-day panel but, then again, it’s possible that he might start the game. Like everything else to do with our team selection, that’s one that’ll only be answered on the day.
It’s likely to be tomorrow, or maybe even Saturday, before Dublin release details of their pick. Even then, past experience would suggest that one or two of those named to start won’t do so. That’s how the whole team selection ritual operates nowadays, I guess.
A quick gallop though the coverage, then. For a change, I think I’ll do it via media outlet this morning.
Irish Independent: Jimmy Keaveney on how Dublin should set up and why he thinks they’ll win, Bomber Liston’s analysis (he also reckons Dublin will win), Martin Breheny speaking with managers of teams beaten by Dublin in this year’s championship (who all think Dublin will win too).
Irish Examiner: piece with Jimmy Keaveney.
Galway Advertiser: match preview (can’t see who wrote it), in which we’re tipped to win.
That’s all I can find at the minute. Back later on with another interesting and informative guest post.
