Has anyone been watching Championship this summer?

Personally I think it's been a tournament of surprises. Several teams I thought would go far got knocked out early on for example some of the Northern teams
 
And considering how Meath gave Dublin such a run for our money I can't believe how badly they lost to Cork.
 
Then again I'm not surprised to see Kerry in the final and if they, and 'The Gooch' in particular are top form I reckon they'll take the Sam Maguire again this year.

Monaghan gave Kerry their toughest challenge this year, and I honestly believe that if Monaghan had beaten Kerry that day, losing only due to poor finishing at the end, they could have went all the way this year. Kerry will most likely win, they live for the big final..
 
Cork came through on the back of an easy win against Meath, as opposed to a great performance..It's a bit of a dud final in terms of interest, at least fo me, as an all-munster final is possibly the least interesting I could have hoped for. Even with Dublin in the final I would have been more interested..
 
Colm Cooper has had two average seasons on the trot and people are starting to doubt his ability. But one only has to look at his distribution to see how good he still is. if he gets greedy in the final (which he needs to), he'll rack up a goal and four, I think.
 
 
I'm still reeling from the Monaghan Loss though..Cry
 
My prediction is:         Kerry 2-13    Cork 0-10
 
What you think?

Well I'm sure about actual scores but as I said I'll be highly surprised if Sam doesn't go back to Kerry this year. They live for the Final as you say.
 
As a Dub it's hard to see both Cork and Kerry in the final but in fairness both deserve to be there. Both Dublin and Meath were atrocious in their games!
 
As for 'Gooch' he's had a tough year what with losing his Dad and a good friend so I can understand why he might not be as into the game at the moment. But I'm willing to be he'll be the star of the game this weekend.
