Two names taken from the Sunday Game panel and two tokens.
Though I do think Andy Moran is an easy choice

Moran should get it, McCarthy will get it.

Cavanagh the only realistic chance from the Tyrone men for me. McCann had a decent year but not enough to push out one of the big names. You could probably make a decent case for a team made up entirely from the finalists!

Moran for me on the Footballer of the year.

How come there are four nominations for POTY? It's only ever been 3. Clarke has had a decent year but I wouldn't have him near POTY - Higgins, Boyle, AOS closer even just from a mayo perspective.

Just seen the TSG team of the year, I'd give Doherty an All Star ahead of AOS & McLaughlin.

I doubt Rock will be far away too after that performance last Sunday.

What odds would you get for Niall Morgan to win an All-Star?

His chances don't look good.

Could they not add him to the FOTY shortlist even at this late stage to make it worth his while turning up?

Two Goal Keepers. if there was 1 goal keeper we would know who is getting the All Star

He knows for a fact he's not getting it.

It's between Cluxton and Moran. Moran deserves it but it is effectively a popularity contest once it gets down to the nominations. Clarke and McCarthy have no chance and Cluxton may get a lot of sentimental votes due to his standing in the game. However Andy Moran will be very popular as well and based on performances he deserves it anyway.

David Moran and Donal Vaughan not even getting nominated are surprises. Vaughan is effectively getting punished twice for getting sent off but then again John Small was selected.

Didn't know that 2 good performances was the criteria for getting nominated. He has played consistently well without being outstanding but is getting slightly scapegoated for a rash decision in the final imo.
