It puts a different complexion on the championship altogether then. He was still Dublins most important player and although Comerford looks like a decent keeper he has not come under any great scrutiny in championship football. His kickout will be targeted now by other top teams this year.

Cluxton undoubtedly was the best keeper in GAA history, he revolutionised the position so much so that all other top keepers are now viewed as semi clones of his.   

Me arse.

McGeeney revolutionised the goalkeeper position by beginning the fly goalie revolution back in 2016 v Cavan. Look how many have copied it since. Sure keepers never are on their line these days. That was more influential than anything Cluxton ever did.

Very true. Similar to the Bosman and the Panenka terms in soccer, it really should be known as 'doing a Courtney' when a gaelic football keeper comes marauding up the pitch. Revolutionary stuff alright!

Cake curran was doing 20 year ago

Cluxton started 20 years ago too, I'd say there's a few differences between them

Tompkins was some man, joining a county's who biggest rivals had won 7 out of the previous 9 All Irelands was definitely motivated by the promise of success!!!

If only he'd have lived with Mayo men out in New York I suspect you'd have broke your duck a long time ago.

O'Shea's are from Mullingar originally. Their father is from Kerry, and has a couple of Westmeath senior championship medals.

Who would have read an interview Ciaran Kilkenny did were he said Cluxo is training at the moment with the team

Someone will eventually get the chance however the joy and pure emotion he gives in those after matches speeches will be unmatched.

So Ciaran Kilkenny says he is training away with them yet David Brady says he has walked away. Who to believe?

If only we had some GAA journalists who might have Dessie Farrell's phone number.
