Football All Stars 2019

*Couldn't find a topic for this subject, will delete if there already is one*

Now that we are down to the last 4 teams in the race for the All Ireland title, what are the chances that those already eliminated will pick up All Stars.

Donegal should pick up a few nominations for the likes of Murphy, McHugh, Brennan, McBrearty and Patton. But, despite winning Ulster and only losing one game, they will only pick up a maximum of 2.

Cork, Meath and Roscommon combined might only get a couple between them if that.

From an Ulster perspective the likes of McKiernan (Cavan) and O'Neill (Armagh) could get nominations, but have no chance of the award.

I'd expect Murphy and McHugh to get all stars.

At this stage I’d think the only nailed on All Stars are Jack McCaffrey and David Clifford.

Cathal McShane, Sean O’Shea, Aidan O’Shea, Paul Mannion and Brian Fenton probably only need a 7/10 performance each in their remaining game(s) to book their spots.

Everything else is wide open as we are now at the men vs men stage, and the AI finalists will take 10-12 spots.

I think McShane and McNamee have been Tyrone's standout performers so far. A big performance from Donnelly or Harte one a semi final or potential final should also put them in firm contention.

All stars set up is a joke and a back slapping exercise between the media and a few successful counties. Has there ever been a year when the best 15 in their positions were the actual all star selection or better still has there ever been a year where they git 8 of them right. Some of these media people who make the selection have no idea of what is going on outside of the top few teams.
The original "texaco" all stars way back in the day were away more reflective of the best footballers in the land and there would be a spread of 10 or 12 counties represented.
Now its a pass the biscuits exercise and in my humble opinion these awards carry no weight because they depend on the success of your team more than the personal skills of the player.

All stars are still up for grabs. One good performance or memorable goal (a la Mulligan) or block (Gormley) and you’re a good shout for an award.

All stars last year.

Winners Dublin got 7
Runners up Tyrone 2
Beaten semi finalists Monaghan got 3 and Galway 1
Then 1 each for Donegal and Kerry who made their exit at the last 8 stage.

Brennan won't get one after the last two games. As good as he was before that.

I’d say Fenton and McShane are more or less nailed on as well, at least one of Murphy and McHugh will get one.

Kieran Donaghy didn’t make an appearance until 5 minutes to go in an AISF and got one in 2014 so too early to say yet!
You can forget about Sean Cavanagh as far as he's a man!

On what basis do Donegal deserve so much more nominations to Roscommon? Both won the same amount of games in this years Championship with Roscommon beating arguably better sides than Donegal,

This nonsense will as usual have around 11 from the AI Finalists and 3 if not 4 from the Semi Finalists.
The other 4 last 8 teams will get a scatter of nominations to make it look good.
