Kevy Mc - Dublin.

12 Seasons
11 Leinsters
8 All Irelands

The goal that turned out to be so decisive vs Kerry in the 2011 Final when 4 points down. A massive score in the history of Dublin football.
The goal vs Kerry in the 2013 Semi Final.

This could be the last Ballon D'or Messi or Ronaldo wins. Could well be the end of an era.

Haaland/Salah/Haaland/Mbappe & Lewandowski will be the favourites outside of Messi/Ronaldo to win one.

Messi 7 -5 up in Ballon D'ors.

It's madness they have won 12 between them. Two phenomenon's.

If you had to pick one Antrim player from the past 50 years who deserves an honourable mention in this conversation who would you go for?

Just get the feeling that Kilcoo have a lot more in the bag. Seemed to stutter through Down Championship. Seasoned Ulster veterans and that has got to count for something even if a few of their players are probably past their prime.

Referee'd them a couple of seasons ago at the Uni, christ they were a fast moving team, inter play and movement off the ball was pretty good, plenty players that came on also and fitted in well with their system. They might get it tighter in their own county, teams are getting wise and they are getting older so its no surprise that its tough in your own championship.

You could well be right.
I just get the feeling they are timing their peak for this ulster championship rather than the Down championship. It they did it was a dangerous tactic as they nearly got caught out a few times.

I agree, i think they have been trying to peak for Ulster. There was a gathering of about 10 people in the bar the night Kilcoo won the Down Championship. They are probably looking ahead to bigger things. Although they have a couple of injury problems so they could be up against it.

Should be a first trophy for Ange in December.

Almost impossible task, but I’d go for Muldoon, Doherty and Bradley.

A better discussion would be to pick a post 93 team that would be better man for man than 93.

O Lynch


SL McGoldrick

C Glass

J McBride

P Bradley
D Heavron

No Mark Lynch Lenny?

Some appointed alright, Cargin have just upped the ante here, by all accounts an unbelievable football brain, wonder now about rest of his team, 2022 is going to be another great championship
PG1 to announce next?

I heard his brother is involved. Not sure what capacity though, don't think he's ever been involved in a team before.

Fergal Doc & Sean Marty would probably make up my top 5, however the conversation last night was top 3.

A question that caused a lot of discussion in the bar last night

Who has been Derry's best 3 players since they won Sam (not including anyone who was on 93 panel)

I went for Mark Lynch, Paddy Bradley & Enda Muldoon.
