I can't believe Murphy is on that list and the likes of Stevie's O'Neill or McDonnell are nowhere to be found.
It's only one person's opinion. Everybody would have different list, it's massively subjective.
Oh of course it's subjective, I just think those players proved more and performed better as a forward over a longer period of time than Murphy.
Murphy was superb when played as an out and out forward when he was very young. Can win ball in the air and on the ground, has great control and can score off either foot. Had he played ten years earlier, who knows where he would rank.
But,, he's barely played as an out and out forward for the past six years, which means he suffers by comparison to men like O'Neill when talking about forwards, and that is fair enough. Unfortunately for him when his story is told, his sheer ability, intelligence and strength being used to fill other gaps in the Donegal team will go against him. He's been the absolute driving force for Donegal in the league this year, but that's as a midfielder.
