Tomás Ó Sé expects Kerry to bounce again from their poor show towards Galway with a slim win towards Monaghan within the Tremendous 8sthis weekend.
Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s facet are dealing with elimination from the championship on Sunday as they journey to Clones for his or her second group sport, having been crushed by the Tribesmen in Croke Park final weekend.
A win for Monaghan would seal a spot within the All-Eire semi-finals for the primary time since 1988, whereas the opposite sport in Group 1 sees Galway face Kildare in Newbridge. A win for Kevin Walsh’s group would additionally see them into the ultimate 4.
In Group 2, Tyrone host Dublin in a mouthwatering conflict in Omagh, with the winners advacing to the All-Eire semi-finals whereas in Dr Hyde Park, Roscommon and Donegal will each search for their first win of the All-Eire collection.
Talking to Des Cahill on Morning Eire right now, Kerry legend Ó Sé weighed in on the 4 contests as he gaves his weekend predictions.
Roscommon vs Donegal
“Each groups below strain right here after final weekend to get a win. I feel it was a wierd one for Donegal towards Dublin, it appeared like they did not push on in that final quarter. They performed very properly in patches however fell off within the final 15 minutes. They created a variety of possibilities. Roscommon performed properly towards an open Armagh however have been ruthlessly uncovered final weekend towards Tyrone.
“They’re at house and they’ll need to enhance however I feel Donegal could have an excessive amount of.”
Tyrone vs Dublin
This will likely be some battle. It provides Mickey Harte one other probability to check his under-fire model of soccer towards the perfect. He has caught to his weapons and I like him for that. I feel their working sport creates every part. I feel the Dubs are a special animal for them although. It’s chalk and cheese between themselves and Roscommon. The Dubs did sufficient final weekend however they will not be pleased with among the free stuff.
Will Tyrone rating sufficient? My guess isn’t any and I feel the Dublin forwards will grind out a consequence.
Kildare vs Galway
Will probably be one other nice ambiance in Newbridge and Kildare have been unfortunate to not get one thing out of final weekend for my part. That sport was within the steadiness however Monaghan completed stronger. I feel Kildare carried the ball into tackles and bought turned over too usually. They appeared to Daniel and Neil Flynn for scoring and Fergal Conway was the one different ahead who scored. That is telling sufficient as a result of thus far, all of the Kildare forwards have been scoring.
Galway performed properly in patches final weekend however I feel there are areas they’ll enhance on. They’ve a plan they usually keep on with it. I anticipate Galway to win however I feel it will likely be an in depth match.
Monaghan vs Kerry
This can be a defining match for each Monaghan and Kerry. Kerry have been poor final weekend. They did not carry out and it’s not ok at this degree. They went away from the tempo and directness that was seen in Munster. Folks will argue that it was towards lesser opposition however I might argue that that’s the template that is wanted towards the larger groups as properly.
If Monaghan win they are going to attain that semi-final that they’ve so badly wished. Karl O’Connell gave among the best shows all yr final weekend. They’ll need to get inside Kerry’s head. Kerry owe Fitzmaurice an enormous efficiency right here and I feel they’re going to get it. I feel Kerry will nearly win it.
