Joe wants AOS in full forward. Hopefully after the Dublin game we can start trying him in there again. I’m with Joe on this one.

His best position is full forward according to Brolly because he scored a few goals against Sligo who were woeful in defence for the Connacht final? The strengths of Horan's team will be middle 8 dominance and AOS will play a big part in that.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Sure didn't they bring in that offensive mark so teams could play a big man on the edge of the square?
That was never a square ball!!

Watched him there in an All Ireland replay, and he was like a duck out of water, not good at all (having said that he did catch one and set up a goal for Keegan). But his running off the ball was limited (looked laboured 'v' the defender)  and it was quite easy for Dublin to nullify him (big faster defender able to brake the ball of him). 

So yes you need a big man up front, but he has to be very mobile

There's no need for Mayo to "try" AOS at full forward. Everyone knows what he can do there. Land him in there for 15 minutes in an All Ireland semi final when it might make a difference.

Brolly for the most part behaved himself last night. Maybe Joanne’s no nonsense approach with him the last night has set the tone.

Hmmm. He had a right go at Ger Cafferkey (mom according to Aaron Kernan I think it was on eir) and Aidan O Shea. O Shea had a huge game. Talking 8-9/10. But he had to wade in to justify his previous critique of these players.
 This guy is all about values and decency but it does not add up for me. He's giving lads a kicking there whether he knows it or not. That's the thing for me with Brolly. There is something going on there that he  ...... can't control?

Its tbe Dunphy/Hook school of punditry. Lucrative as there is no market for rational analysis.

His Indo article is just a rewrite of rural 6 counties good, everything else bad. Insert some tale of woe about loyalists and repeat.

My first and last contribution to the Brolly bus on here, if he is such a g......e why is there 310 pages on here, he should be ignored but because he is not ignored he is laughing all the way to the bank.

Colm Orourke came out with a similar statement regarding Dooher, and ended up with egg on his face.

It's obviously a game of opinions but to say there is no better player in the country....I'd have to disagree...he's not even the best player on the Mayo team (Keegan)

Big Murphy could also give him a masterclass if it's big man v big man yr after

I think O’Shea is a fantastic footballer but I’d definitely have Murphy before him.

Our Aido has got the better of Murphy a few times and the Donegal man did not line if at all.
