Jes can you close her down now, how has the discussion about the greatest ever turned into a discussion hijacked by the inbreds.

I couldn't name 5 decent derry players fullstop!

I don't doubt that you are unable to do that. Fair play to you for admitting it.

Connor Matt
Fitzgerald Maurice
Canavan Peter
Egan John
Cooper Colm
Linden Mickey
Connolly Diarmuid
Giles Trevor
McGuigan Brian
O'Neill Stephen

I found this very hard to do. Top 5 I was fairly happy with, but from 8-10 especially was a nightmare. Stevie from Killeavy versus Stephen O'Neill was a brutal decision, as was Brian McGuigan versus Ciaran McDonald. Jimmy Keavney not being in there was hard to square away too. Sean Cavanagh I took the cowards way out, as I always think of him more as a driving midfielder than a pure forward.

In an effort to build bridges and because its Friday I do apologise. My top 5 would be Paddy Bradley, Enda Gormley, Downey, Muldoon and Big Jeffrey!

Has Brian Dooher even been mentioned. The most effective no 10 in Ireland in the last 20 years.  Incredible workrate and scored some of the best points seen in Croke Park.  double all ireland captain to boot.
Lots of chatty light stuff going on there men but ye know fcuk all about football!

Brian Dooher was mentioned I thought? He'd not be in my list, but that's hardly a terrible state of affairs, there's been a lot of excellent forwards. I'd have him in my team every day and twice on Sundays. A rich man's Donnacha Walsh.
