Eugene McGee: A day of domination

When favourites lose a big game in Croke Park the winners often do not get the credit they deserve -- as those who have tipped the favourites tend to blame the losers more than praising the winners.

It would be a huge injustice to deal with the Donegal-Cork game like that because the dominant component of this game was the well-structured organisation of the winners and the methodology of their manager Jim McGuinness.

This game was dominated from start to finish by Donegal and, as has happened in all their games this year, when the team got a grip on their opponents from the very start it soon became a vice-like grip which eventually reduced the Cork players to a scarcely believable level of mediocrity.
