Pat Spillane says Dublin are turning into the Barcelona of Gaelic football in his latest column for the Sunday World

The Kerry legend has been bowled away by Jim Gavin's team this year, and he is full of praise in his weekend column.

Here are a few snippets from the piece:

Dublin are turning into the Barcelona of Gaelic football. Their movement on and off the ball; their angles of running and their pace sets them apart.

Defensively they’re in a different league this summer compared to last season. 

They’re more street wise and right now and best team in the country by some distance.

The frightening thing is that I don’t think they hit top gear on Sunday.

Another Kerry great, Marc O'Sé is also in Sunday's paper and in an exclusive interview he talks about the task of retaining Sam Maguire.

“Last year we came in under the radar. This year everybody wants to beat us, though I think everybody wants to beat Kerry anyway. Ultimately it boils down to hunger and you definitely need the rub of the green which we had last year.”
