Totally agree, mup

Connolly hugely overrated

Hugely underrated, was the best player in the country for about 2-3 years running at his prime and settled for all Ireland's instead of individual player awards. Everyone outside of Dublin would disagree of course.! :)

I would not dispute Keegan in that team also, he was/is consistently top 5 player in the country. Is he the best wing back over the last 30 years? different era's etc.

Being biased, and i am biased, i would have James McCarthy in there somewhere, Jordan too, its really hard to leave players out also. Everyone remembers AI winners and finals, those players get the spotlight.

That's all I know. I didn't actually hear which player it was but was informed it was an Ulster based player that came from a sports journalist.

From a Div 1 county?

That would mean it's a Donegal, Monaghan or Tyrone payer according to your source.

Lower league player according to the examiner today.

Division 4.

Diarmuid Connolly.

 ;)

Why the smiley?
Diarmuid was one of the finest players of his time and is (probably) still able to compete with the very best. Okay, he may be a wee bit temperamental at times but that doesn't take from his footballing genius or his ability to inspire those around him.

Cult hero basically means someone greatly admired by a relatively small audience  despite limited success.  Connolly would not fall under that category.

I believe he would, a man who is castigated for everything he has done on and off the field of play, some times deserved and sometimes not, a villain to some if you like and was always up against it playing, constantly  targeted by players, pundits and the media, in most cases, but not all, his true skill and performance shown through and got us over the line for club and county.

Did you not say before that you had two usernames??

I did, but only set up the new one and got rid of the old.  The Aristocrat was the old one, check when the last time that was posted.

Ah lads come on, do we need to go over this again, as i said i am happy for the mods to clarify i am a stand alone individual.

Never heard of this horan feeney story?

Don't worry Greatest, I believe ya! As for the story itself... I had forgotten about it to be honest. It's a bit odd to be bringing it up 7 years on.

Thanks

Il have a google..
Yup, I know you and the Aristocrat are the same user and I don't believe you have any other names. At least none that you appear to be using on GAA posts.
Dunno what the fuss over your names is about.
There are far bigger trolls than you on this board.

Im only half a troll :) Il leave my trolling until the summer..... or something pops up

fair play

Well done to Tyrone on the win, a good battle, Dublin have a lot of work to do for the summer IMO. While I hate losing, it may benefit Dublin long run to taste defeat. Remember what its like. Come July its a different ball game.

The idea that Jarlath Burns is some sort of anti-republican is hilarious.

Its a valid point he made. I dont think it will happen for quite some time yet.

Never heard of the others tbh,

Jarlath Burns and Larry McCarthy the frontrunners, I hear. McCarthy would be a strong candidate. Hugely qualified, and would have a global perspective.

I would want Jarlath Burns, id imagine he is favorite.
