Quote from: Walter Cronc on July 31, 2023, 01:31:09 PMIt's a game of opinions and you Derry boys aren't shy about giving yours. Not just Armagh people that were giving him rave reviews all year but whatever you're having yourself........Quote from: mackers on July 31, 2023, 01:12:22 PMQuote from: Mario on July 31, 2023, 12:57:24 PMI don't remember him losing out on any one-on-one duels against ANYONE all year. The All-Star system would have got him in ahead of some of those players you list if Armagh had have made an AI semi. Not many of those players you list had to come the field and be a ball-winning option the way Murnin was used this year. A colossus.Quote from: mackers on July 31, 2023, 12:53:05 PMIt was the one on one duals he lost with McEvoy that stood out for me, in Murnin's biggest game of the year. Hard to get an all star after that. I agree he had a good season otherwise, but who of the following does he get in the all star ff line ahead of: Clifford, McGuigan, Costello, Mannion, Basquel, Con, McManus?Quote from: Walter Cronc on July 31, 2023, 12:40:52 PMMurnin had a great year (whether that is enough to get an All-Star given how the system works is debatable) Trying to deny that is simply madness. One arm wrestle of a match does not ruin a whole season for him.Quote from: yellowcard on July 31, 2023, 12:17:22 PMQuote from: lenny on July 31, 2023, 12:11:31 PMQuote from: marty34 on July 31, 2023, 11:29:12 AMQuote from: tbrick18 on July 31, 2023, 11:27:48 AMQuote from: lenny on July 31, 2023, 11:20:22 AM
2. McCluskey. 3. Fitzsimmons. 4. T O'Sullivan
5. O'Connell 6. J McCarthy. 7. White
8. Fenton. 9. Rogers
10. P Clifford. 11. Basquel. 12. Smith
13. Clifford. 14. McGuigan. 15. Costello
Can't see Beggan getting in over Cluxton/Ryan/Lynch tbh.
As much as I'd like to see mcluskey in, 3 for an Semi-finalist probably won't happen.
I could see McManus getting one.
But I'd say you're not too far away in general there.
Mc Carthy of Monaghan will get one.
Very possibly, I think it'll be between him and O'Connell. If there's one from outside the semifinalists it'll be between Enda Smith and D Canavan both of whom had great seasons.
Andy Murnin was the best player outside of the 4 semi finalists. Smith had a great season as well and it would be hard to begrudge him an award though I don't think he'll get it.
A 19 year old rookie easily dealt with Murnin.
Christ you boys over hype him something serious!
