And you're a Mayo person .....I doubt it somehow

So does that mean I canít call it as it is? Iíve had a ST and been to every game for years, canít stand him

Is it any wonder most decent posters like moysider have abandoned this place when this is the sort of muck that gets posted.

So we arenít allowed to question things? Cillian OíConnor isnít a marquee forward and I donít see whatís so ridiculous about that statement

Is there a better forward than him in Connacht? Maybe Andy Moran on a good day.. Certainly nobody from Roscommon or Galway comes close. Every other county would give their right arm to have a player like O'Connor.

Based on overall play? Iíd say Damien Comer and Shane Walsh anyway. Barry McHugh looks a reliable free taker but heíll have to prove himself in a lot more high pressure situations to be compared to OíConnor

Comer and Walsh are good players but both of them were held scoreless against Kerry last summer. Cillian kicked 3 from play against that same Kerry defence a few weeks later. What makes their overall play so much better? In terms of scoring, creating scores and work rate off the ball.

Not that youíd realise it, but itís this needlessly defensive posturing that holds back discussion. If you can disprove or dispute what someone says go ahead and do it but few fall for the high horse mounting routine.

It is to be noted that Mayo were far more in that game against Galway were. Shane Walsh is far more erratic Iíll give you that although I feel heís a more skilful player. OíConnor a better finisher though. Iím open to correction but I feel Comer contributes more to open play and is more important to Galways game. But again OíConnor a better kicker.

Just responding to his doubts is all

Maybe the reason Mayo were far more in the game is that Cillian and others got stuck in and exploited weaknesses in the Kerry team. You believe Shane Walsh is better player but have little substance to back it up. I've yet to see Comer properly roast a top team in championship either.

Fair point but you still have to consider the system, set up of the team and players around them.

Ian Burke and Sean Armstrong scored well that day so you can't just give Walsh and Comer a free pass.

Put it this way, OConnor has definitely proven himself more often throughout the years but if I had to pick a team for the Summer Iíd take Comer over him (provided we had someone to take the frees)

Sure we'll just let McLoughlin and Doherty take the frees, that always goes well...
