If Graham Geraghty isn't in your team, do you even like gaelic football?
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Just looking at the recently announced hurling team of the 90s made my mouth water. Some players. Hope they release football one. Gonna have a stab at it.
Gonna be miles out , but here we go...

1. John O’Leary
2. Tony Scullion
3. Darren Fay
4. Keith Barr
5. Paul Curran
6. Henry Downey
7. Seamus Moynahin
8. Anthony Tohill
9. John McDermott
10. Trevor Giles
11. Maurice Fitzgerald
12. Graham Gerghty
13. Mickey Linden
14. Peter Canavan
15. Colin Corkery

Be kind!!

Good effort that and would make up most of my own team of the nineties. As an Armagh man, I would have no issue with the Derry representation and indeed I would suggest there is an argument for Johnny McGurk to be included, but Tony Scullion and Tohill would be an absolute shoo-ins.

Seamus Moynihan would make the noughties team but he shouldn't be on the nineties team.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Pat McEnaney's performance for Meath in the 96 replay would surely have him ahead of John McDermott?

To have 3 Derry men in a team of the 90s and not one from Donegal seems a bit revisionist. Of our 92 team I'd offer Martin McHugh with honourable mention to Gavigan and Tony Boyle. Donegal contested the first 4 Ulster finals of the 90s, winning 2 and took Sam home like Derry at the first opportunity. Tohill was class. I'd argue Canavans best period was in the 00s when he reached the summit.

Did they not have opportunities in the previous 125 years?!

Greg Blaney and James McCartan along with Mickey Linden

Sean Og de Paor and Ja Fallon?

Both played their best football in the 90's.

Joyce and Donnellan would really be more 00's given that they so young in 98. Ciaran McDonald would be more the 00's also.

Canavan was better in the 90s
I agree

Others I would suggest are James Nallen, Anthony Tohill, wee James McCartan, Ja Fallon and Charlie Redmond
Charlie shouldn’t be within an asses roar of that team!!  Kieran McKeever would be worthy of consideration - thought he was a great corner back.
Charlie was the best forward on the Dublin team that challenged for All Irelands in the four years 92-95.

He was the only Dub forward to win more than one All Star in the 90s. He won 3. He was an excellent player. Maybe there were 6 better in the 90s, but he definitely should be in the running.

1990   Cork    0–11   Meath   0–9   
1991   Down   1–16   Meath   1–14   
1992 Donegal   0–18   Dublin   0–14   
1993   Derry   1–14   Cork   2–8   
1994   Down   1–12   Dublin   0–13   
1995   Dublin   1–10   Tyrone   0–12   
1996   Meath   2–9   Mayo   1–11   
1997 Kerry   0–13   Mayo   1–7   
1998   Galway   1–14   Kildare   1–10   
1999   Meath   1–11   Cork   1–8   

Down and Meath double winners. Meath also beaten twice. Cork won one lost 2.

All three should have more players than Derry unless the National League was very important :-\

Purely for his performance in the 96 schmozzle Boots McGuinness deserves a mention.

Boots is another good example of a player we didn't appreciate enough at the time.

God when you hear some of the names being bandied about it makes you wonder how anyone watched football in the 90's.
Henry Downey
Greg Blayney
Paul Curran
Keith Barr
James Nallon
Charlie Redmond

Wouldn't get within an asses roar of any good team nowadays. In hindsight they were very average footballers. Of their time I suppose.

Joyce maybe, streets ahead even then of most forwards named on the team anyway. Donnellan was as good in '98 as he ever would be, should be the first name on that list. Tomas Mannion for sheer versatility should be there also, ahead of a whole host of inferior northern representatives.

Pat Fallon from Mayo was a great midfielder
Blaney was a genius.
