Peter Canavan's Team of the Year:

1. Rory Beggan (Monaghan)

2. Jonny Cooper (Dublin)

3. PŠdraig Hampsey (Tyrone)

4. Drew Wylie (Monaghan)

5. James McCarthy (Dublin)

6. Colm Cavanagh (Tyrone)

7. Jack McCaffrey (Dublin)

8. Brian Fenton (Dublin)

9. Brian Howard (Dublin)

10. Paul Mannion (Dublin)

11. CiarŠn Kilkenny (Dublin)

12. Ryan McHugh (Donegal)

13. David Clifford (Kerry)

14. Damien Comer (Galway)

15. Conor McManus (Monaghan)

Comer wasn't even Galway's best ffs. Such an over-rated player, still just a big lump, who has now developed the ability to go down with the slightest touch. Dan Flynn who scored probably the 2 goals of the championship, 3 if you include his one against Fermanagh, would be ahead of him for me for one.

Just clueless.

Comer is one of the best forwards in the game and yet there's still many aspects of his game he can improve on.

Didnít help that he was pulled back wing back most the time, one of the most dangerous forwards in the final third

Thereís a bizarre conflict in the Mayo opinion here that seems to be along the lines of ďwe didnít rate Rochford at all but we didnít want rid of him either unless they have a better manager lined upĒ.

FTFY

Always thought Rochford took far too much stick for changing the keepers in the AI replay. What balls that took.
Because Hennelly made a howler, it'll go down as a de facto poor decision, but you couldn't legislate for that and there was a lot of merit in the choice he made. Clarke had a mediocre day in the final, and Hennelly is, on average, a much better kicker-outer. Clarke's final kickout over the line in 2017 was exactly the type of thing Rochford was trying to avoid in 16 I'd guess.

Personally I would think he'd be well sought after by other counties now.

Nothing from the players yet as far as I know? Any chance they could stick their necks out and ask SR and Mayo CB to have a re-think I wonder. (Especially given the Breaffy invovlement!)

I have a lot of time for Hennelly, I think heís a quality keeper. I donít blame him for anything. There might be some logic but you just donít make that change for an All Ireland. Itís what I said when I heard about the change before the match in 2016, and Iíll stand by it two years, any keeper but particularly Hennelly isnít going to be confident not having played all year and it seemed both unnecessary and disaster waiting to happen. Thatís how it turns out, and this is nothing against Hennelly, a confident Hennelly catches that ball all day long.

Tried their best to throw it away alright. Johnny Glynn had a tap over point that he went for goal in that could have been the difference.

A poor enough final with poor enough hurling. Poor refereeing and poor commentary from Marty.

If I hear ďitís not their dayĒ one more time...

The difference will be that for the second goal they gave the ball away sloppily in defence.
Did the same two possessions in a row, Limerick hit two wides, did it a third time and Limerick got the third goal.

Kelly is good but what exactly is his role? A runner between half back and half forward? In that case who plays his position at number 5, Johnny Heaney? It's not working if that's the case. Kelly has seen some amount of ball from his own goal line right up to the full forward line but you'd wonder what sense it's making, not doing him any justice either.

McDaid and Silke back next year

I donít know what Kerin has done to even be 12/1. A foul machine.

Helps to win a few games for a start

Ian Burke deserves one but don't think he'll get it because of the unselfish nature of his play, sets up more than he scores, I think Galway will get a few nominations but will probably end up with one for Shane Walsh.

I half feel that Tom Flynn is the most deserving Galway player of one. Hasn't been a better midfielder not named Brian Fenton this Summer. He's even kicked a few monster points when he was always reluctant to shoot in the past.

I don't think they will give Galway two though so Walsh or Comer will probably get the token nod even though you could argue that Burke has been the best of them.

Wouldn't entirely agree with that, but I feel he turned his season around at HT in the Connacht final. Has been a positive surprise since. No All Star however.

Definitely deserves an all star imo

Beggan is better than Cluxton.

And Con O'Callaghan,Paul Mannion,Ciaran Kilkenny are Dublin forwards that would make the best team in Ireland.

Take Tyrone They can draw on 100000
 for their team due to sectarian division
Dublin CSO/Irl pop est 2018 is 1.35m
Estimates of GAA investments per member
for development etc. in Dublin are five times
higher than the other Counties like Tyrone
So Dub potential playing pop 13.5 times Tyrone the
investment factor multiples that by 5 
Ie. Dub overall advantage in resources is
13.5x5=67.5 to 1 for Tyrone.
 Other Counties have a lots worse resource
 disadvantage than Tyrone
using this formulae to give a rough idea of comparability
So Dubs win everything play keep ball
Result total boredom no money
Croke Park sold to U2 and rugby and GAA withers
GAA HQ Thurles hurling best game in world
well played in 10 Counties at best lives on
dull boring drunken Dub supporter dominated
football dies
Do we want this? Maybe
But let's have one last try to balance the resources and
effort around the Country stopping media creation Dublin domination
and get back to club roots
Let's make the money work for the people all the people fairly.

A decent chunk of that 1.3 million probably arenít playing football tbf

Whats running them tight 4-5 pts after 55mins before they bliw u away! Tyrone ok but Dublin width would open them up easy enough and maybe only 3 or 4 of them would make the dublin team at a stretch!

Thatís when you put the pressure on Cluxton
