Course he would be in the squad, but if he played shit he would be took off and maybe spend few games on the bench. Might do him no harm. The favouritism stinks.

Teams rarely bench their best players regardless if whether they are playing poorly?

Have Mayo ever taken off Aidan O'Shea or Cillian O'Connor in big games where they have struggled? And there have been quite a few of those with those two players.

Decent article, would be wise to maybe play down the return of McKenna considering.

They're prob related to Mickey Harte as well. His reach knows no bounds.

He mentions that there are only two players from the 2013 minor side in the current squad - McShane was in that side too though.

indeed his reach knows no bounds, right to the top of the county board it seems.

McShane didn't start that day however.

Sean Fox (Ceapach); Colm Byrne (An Eaglais), Rhys Quinn (Cluain Eo), Cillian McCann (Fionntamhnach); Shea Hamill (Domhnach Mor), Christopher Morris (Gallbhaile), Padraig McGirr (Aireagal Chiarain), Ronan Nugent (Gallbhaile), Frank Burns (Cabhan a’Chaotainn), David Mulgrew (Ard Bo), Conor McKenna (An Eaglais), Ruairi McGlone (Achadh Lu), Lee Brennan (Tri Leac) Daire Gallagher  (Tri Leac), Stephen McGrath (Doire Lochain).

Always thought Ronan Nugent is a decent player who has probably deserved an McKenna Cup call up in recent years.

Maybe not too many from that squad made it to senior level but some very good footballers all the same who have served their clubs well since then

Few of them would be worth a call up after the championship

Those players are all 24/25 now. Realistically too late to be looking at giving the seniors a push and trying to establish themselves.
Your future call ups will be coming mostly from the 2019 and 2020 U20 teams.

Whats our strongest 15 when whole team is fit? I know McKenna not in yet and Donaghy not even called up yet but the championship he has had warrants him a spot for me..

1. Niall Morgan
2. R Brennen
3. Ronan Mc
4. M Mc Kernan
5. T McCann
6. Hampsey
7. P Harte
8. Brian Kennedy
9. Colm Cavanagh
10. M Donnelly
11. Conor McKenna
12. Niall Sludden
13. Darren McCurry
14. Cathal McShane
15. Paul Donaghy

Had hard decisions between McCurry and Bradley
And P Harte and Cassidy

Rafferty was probably our best player in the league and a nailed on starter at corner back.

Donaghy deserves a run but will have it all to prove, I think I'd rather see Colm Cavanagh brought in off the bench to close games out at this stage of his career.

McCann has had a couple of poor years but he's also been injured in that time, looked back to his best v Trillick a fortnight ago.

I'd go with:

1. Morgan
2. Rafferty.
3. McNamee
4. R Brennan
5. McCann
6. Hampsey
7. Burns
8. R Donnelly
9. B Kennedy
10. M Donnelly
11. Sludden
12. McKenna
13. McCurry
14. McShane
15. Harte

There's a lot of options there - guys like Bradley, McGeary, Meyler, Cavanagh, Cassidy and potentially Donaghy and McAliskey to come in.

I thought Niall Kelly and Michael O'Neill have done well in the limited minutes they saw in the McKenna Cup too.

Is Paudie McNulty worth another go at county level?

I think he's better than some of the options we have there presently and looked in great shape the other night against Errigal.

I’d have thought Kieran McGeary is a nailed on starter too. Is McShane going to be for for the championship? Thought he had surgery a few weeks back.

McShane is out for the remainder of the year afaik.
