The modern football era can be divided into two periods, pre and post Jimmy McGuinness.
What we thought you were told by a jealous Pat Spillane was puke football was actually nothing of the kind.
I'd love to get back to the noughties-era football.

The naughties were a golden age of football, gone was the age of the hallion that allowed for football subimlity to arise and go forth

Ah the hallion. The monster who opponents both respected and feared. Also surprisingly skilful. Every team needed one or two. Big Seamus Quigley is as close as a modern day footballer could be.
                Brian Gilligan would eat him for breakfast!
Can we have a Dream Hallion team.

O'Gara would run him tight tho.


He definitely would. I'm trying to think of a few forward hallions but with the exception of the Bomber and Dermot mc Nicholl i cant think of any that those backs wouldnt tear limb from limb.
You could play Vinny Corey full forward.

Good one but probably not quite enough of a hallion. I think I once  seen him receive attention from the physio during one game!

I've a spine of my team here:

To be clear they had to be able to play as well as kicking 2shades of shite out of the opposition so rules the Grimley bros out! The Aussie's would think twice before messing with these boys.

                    1. Big Finbar mc Connell (Tyrone)

2. Paul higgins(Down).   3. Mick Lyons (meath). 4. Tony Scullion(Derry)
5. KieranMcGeeney(Armagh) 6. Liam Harnan(Meath). 7. Niall Cahalane(Cork)

          8. Brian Gilligan(Derry) captain
          9. Brian Mullins(Dublin)

10.          11. Dermot McNicholl(Derry)   12.

13.               14. The bomber liston(kerry)   15.

Bellew at 3?

Francie Bellew  or  Mick Lyons for the full back spot.

My moneys on Mick, what is the concencus here?

Peter Withnell, the man who silenced Mick Lyons, instead of Larry Reilly, who was never one of football's hard men.

His 'performance' in the 96 final merits automatic inclusion.

Noel o Leary was a finer example of a hallion than Mc keever. Larry Reilly was no hallion.

No worries, he'd be definitely needed as a blood sub at some stage. Larry removed by popular demand.

And he would have gotten away with it too, if it wasn't for that pesky umpire.

Jesus that's a formidable outfit.  Not a white boot or a metatarsal in sight.
