Are Dublin In Decline? We Investigate


AFTER winning an eleventh Leinster title in a row amid the continuing absence of several All-Ireland winning stars, WWN Sports, alongside its panel of esteemed experts, ask if the Dublin men’s senior footballers are in decline after a less than stellar Leinster final performance.

“You know what they say, ’11-in-a-row is a piece of piss’ but to win it by any margin less than 35 points is proof you’re a bag of auld shite,” former 1-time veteran of round 2 of the Sigerson Cup, Noel Caffley, shared with WWN Sport.

A sure sign of decline, the Dubs defence had to wait until late in the second to take their iPads onto the field of play and catch up on whatever TV series they’re currently binging.

“I’ve built my entire GAA pundit persona around splitting Dublin in two, if they are really in decline and don’t win the All-Ireland then I’ve nothing left!” confirmed WWN Sport ever present Cathal Kearnan, 5-time All-Ireland final executive box attendee.

Kerry’s David Clifford cloning programme may be up and running in time for the All-Ireland in a severe blow to Dublin’s chances at retaining Sam.

“Dublin need to really up their game if they’re hoping to turn up against Mayo, watch Mayo shit the bed again, and then pull away in a brief 5-minute flurry of point scoring before dropping back into first gear,” offered Junior B bench veteran Tommy Dunden in a sobering assessment of a Dublin team which look dead in the water.

“I’ve never seen such a pathetic group of All-Ireland and Leinster winners in my time being paid to be a contrary pup on the Sunday Game,” Dunden continued, while highlighting replays showing Kildare only lost by 8 points, which is a real victory for Jack O’Connor’s men.

“I just miss Stephen Cluxton’s unmistakable smile and positive demeanour,” sobbed Caffley.

“Apart from O’Callaghan, Rock, Kilkenny, Scully, Fenton, Cooper, McCarthy, McMahon, Small and Murchan who have they got really?” concluded Dunden, who can’t wait to write his post Dublin All-Ireland final loss column in which he confirms that after 6 consecutive years of saying Dublin are shite he will finally be partially correct.
