Cian Johnson? He hasn't played any adult inter county championship football so explain to me how he's up there with Clifford? Your last post disregarded David Cliffords underage feats because they're "not comparable with adult" while most of Johnson's achievements are underage.
At least try to maintain some consistency with your blind criticisms

Cian Johnson, Oisin Gallen and Rian O'Neill are all great talents to be fair but at this moment and time they are all a fair bit away from David

Not as much hype and he's on the same team but Clifford is marked out as some sort of messiah or something. The fact O Shea is on the same team and a better player sets that record straight. As I said ,a good footballer but spare us all the aul blarney about being the best like a good man."
You were the one mentioned age or age groups so at least get it right, quite frankly youre full of it and id love to rip the bag out of you in person for a while.. you seem to easy.

Good man yourself, I thought that's what I was dealing with so thanks for proving me right.
I'd. say the only bag you're ripping regularly is your own by the sound of it.

King David scored 9 points for east Kerry today against the St Brendan's board putting his team into the county final.

But that's "just club football" so that doesn't count. Now if it was club hurling then thst would prove how good a footballer he is

He has been top form in club championships, heavy scoring in every game, unreal

Looking forward to the DVD before Xmas. King Puck Vs St Brendan's.

In all seriousness fair play to young David sounds like he had a good game against St Brendan's. He's a good little player without question.

Doesn't he play for Fossa? Are they a Junior club? Do they lump regions in together to make up Senior sides to give lads games, a mix of the best players from across an area of the county to make a hybrid super club. Must be weird playing your club football with a region as opposed to your club, but I'm sure there is logic behind it, it's an interesting concept.

Well done David.

Yeah the only "club football" thing

I remember well Diarmuid Connolly's All Ireland winning contributions being described as such

Funny how selective a person's outrage can be when it doesn't suit them

Congrats to David on an excellent performance

No doubting his talent

I remember Colm Basquel scoring 3-4 against an excellent Na Fianna side a couple weeks ago and 1-4 the other night to follow it up.

4-8 in two games

He doesn't get the same hype though...

Johnson has played senior with Offaly in the league. It was by choice that he opted to stick with the U-20's, even though the senior management wanted him for the championship. I actually admire him for that. He'll have enough time to play senior. When knowledgeable football men, close to the game on the ground, mention Johnson in the same breath as Matt Connor, then it's time to pay heed.

I'm a fan of Basquel myself, he's a super player.

Clifford has been doing business for club and county though for past 2 years. even before that, albeit its 'only minor.' You can only play against what is put infront of you and I don't even remember anybody so dominant in minor footballer before. Now the transition is coming through to senior and he has already been standing out.

But yes Colm Basquel is a great player, I would like to see him more involved with Dublin next year. Definitely has the potential to make a name for himself on the intercounty stage

He has the potential alright and he's already proven as much already with seniors

For me he's up there as one of the best finishers currently available to Dublin and has another gear to him that we might see in the not so distant future

He has a cool head in front of goal. Scoring a goal late on to deny Na Fianna and another against Judes to win the game.

If he has another showing like that against Thomas Davis he'll be well up the list as player of championship

I could explain our footballing championship to you but it would blow your tiny little mind.

I don't know if he's the best in the country but he's definitely going in the right direction!
