and what about the other lads i named? not better than what u have in.

only 2 out of your 6 forwards has won a cship

Youve no creggan men also,  whatever your problem is with the kickhams. Cranfield will be fuming

You're very sensitive. Should I change my team to be exactly the same as what you pick?

What Creggan players would be in it? Lots of very good players - but maybe not just quite stand out enough.

Winning club c'ships has nothing to do with anything when picking a successful county team. It takes more than one player.

I will admit I forgot a few half forwards though but wouldn't pick the same line as you might.

Fair enough ITG, didnt mean to take it out on you, sorry. But your team selection in the forward line was brutal.

As for Creggan player, Ricky Johnston has been county full back as ten years. And from memory has marked the likes of Murphy and McManus very well. So theres one. You'll have to go back 50 years ago to get another at that level

And as for c'ships. Theres a wee thing called a "winning mentality" that any decent team should have. If you dont have a nucleus of cship winning players in your county squad then you dont have that within your squad. How would you expect the likes of C.Small, Pat Brannigan, E.Fyffe and players from clubs that arent even competitive at their club level to compete against other counties in and around their divisions, the likes of derry who have players from coleraine, mfelt, s'neil, b'derry who have all won c'ships in recent years

Yes to be fair Johnston is a good shout.

I don't agree with your point in the last paragraph. A team having a winning mentality and a player having a winning mentality are a different thing altogether. You take hurling for example and Tommy Walsh who is now getting some success at intermediate level. He wasn't successful during the crux of his key playing days - did that mean he didn't have a winning mentality? No it didn't.

You will get more players from winning c'ship teams because they must be better to be in winning championship teams yes but you will get players from many smaller "unsuccessful" clubs in many counties. Walsh is one example but if you dug into it there are many more.

Also you asked if I had something against Creggan and then you put C Small as a guy from a club who's not even competitive at club level...

Total devastation here, i said it here before, my biggest fear is the day Jim Gavins leaves the team.

The most important thing to remember, its not all about the winning, its the legacy and culture he leaves in place and the men he made. All future players will aspire to this era as the template.

The team still has the players to win a couple of more, however some slight cracks are appearing and who will also follow him in retirement.

My choice for successor is Cluxton.

Pass me a bucket! You only appear on here to crow about how great Dublin are (look at your username ffs) and to insult others.

It's like he's done media training and treats this as the media but got it all wrong  ;D

To be fair though I find some of the criticism of Gavin a bit harsh. Yes he has clear advantages but he is clearly an exceptional guy too. It will be very interesting to see how they follow up now. You would expect them to still dominate but how much so will tell us how good he is / was.

Retrospective bans for Robertson and TAA?

What did Robertson do?
I thought the ref got the TAA one just about right. A poor challenge, but similar to the one he booked Richarlison for as well.

He did a deliberate handball and should have got a second yellow.(TAA)

If they're brilliant and haven't won a c'ship in 2 years though then surely the teams beating them must be pretty good...

Irish News doing a team of last 20 years for each county apparently(I rarely buy it these days). Any antrim team in it or anyone pick a team?

I would say 09 would probably dominate it. At least we have more wins in this last 20 than the previous 20 lol.

Derry club football has always been a good bit stronger with the exception of the St Galls team.

This year aside Derry always do well in ulster. (Coleraine and Slaughtneil). We can barely win a game these days.

Very few of those Tyrone teams came through Queens. More J'town. McAnallen and Jordan from 03 but that was about it?

Armagh had a lot mind and he was a great coach.

A game changer for Dublin.

Brilliant manager.

Opens up the 2020 Championship a little...


Well said Dinny. A serious amount of rubbish on this thread unfortuntely and Dinny as he often does is a shining light in the midst of the crap. Obviously Dinny has issues with Dublin's perceived advantages but he can still be sensible and rational in his appraisal of a great of the GAA.

Two good posts. Fully agree.
