I have listed below the forwards suggested by posters from the other thread.  If you list your top ten forwards I will compile an overall top 10/20 forwards of the last 40 years as voted by you.

Please note:

1. Choose your top ten forwards and post your list to this thread

2. Include only those forwards who have played since 1977

3. Choose from the list below

4. Do NOT number your list - assumed to be 1 to 10

5. Please copy and paste to maintain common spellings and to ease the compilation of the final list.

Thanks

Top 10 players of the past 40 years, but they had to have played in the last 20 years? What?

Half forwards included? they're not real forwards are they?

Where is Joe Brolly's name?  Eoin Bradley's name is sitting there, a fine player was Eoin but  wtf has he ever won? a McKenna Cup?  Joe can blow his kisses to the Tyrone mob on the back of his 2 shiny all stars,  modest enough in the scheme of the all time greats but in the context of Derry football, 2 all stars is legend.

Seems like it's only scoring forwards that are included - Galvin / Dooher / Flynn might not get score more than 2-3 points that often but you'd need have at least one on your team

People picking less than ten has the potential to unfairly skew the results in favour of the ones those people do pick.

What have trophies got to do with an individual's ability? Many shite forwards won all Ireland's, and many brilliant footballers won little or nothing. It's completely irrelevant.

no shite forward won an all- ireland. You have to be a good player to play for a top 4 county
