James Horan reckons Dublin's rivals will start targeting Dublin goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton in a bid to put pressure on and then capitalise on his kickouts. 

The former Mayo manager was on Off The Ball alongside Colm 'Wooly' Parkinson to review the Dubs' All-Ireland final victory over Kerry and he gave his take on the three-time All-Ireland winning goalkeeper. 

"His decision-making is a little bit off. It's not as sharp as it was and it's like he knows that himself and he's almost doubting some of the kicks that he wants to go for," said James. 

"What'll happen now is you'll see teams next year, when they see Cluxton in there, everyone will be saying he can be got at. You're going to have a lot more teams trying to really get a system where they can push up on all their attacks so it's going to make it harder for Stephen to be as effective as he once was."

James also touched on the Dubs' vast potential given their young age-profile as a squad.
