Kevin McLoughlin is another one, a great old soldier for Mayo and strikes you as the sort of lad that would wear any jersey from 1 - 15 for Mayo if asked.

Fair enough on Wylie but I think Beggan is very well rated.

I'd say so, didn't he win an all star last year?

Replying To boman11:  "Yes sorry Langon is who im referring to, serious player who could indeed step it up again but the question always is will they, I believe he will. Indeed you are right though the experienced heads prevailed that day but a gutting defeat like that can sometimes work wonders for these young lads going into next year and beyond, I expect big things from Donegal in years to come (well I hope). They and Kerry for me are the only 2 that will be able to contest with Dublin"
Hopefully I do agree with you purely based on the forwards Kerry and Donegal have. However both teams need to work on their goal conversion rate on chances made the year gone. Michael was Ulster U-21 championship player of the year 3 years ago in what is proving to be a vintage year for the grade. Hopefully Donegal can kick on and mature mentally and push on to another level.

It's all down to opinion though to be fair, it just depends how highly you rate a player but I would agree that there are names that shouldn't be there bit again, just someones opinion

Ryan Wylie - fantastic defender. He'd walk onto the Dublin team

Going back a few years with this one but Martin Flanagan from Westmeath was a great player that is never really mentioned

Here's one for yous lads, this is bound to get mixed reactions but due to the stick he has received ion the past years and the criticism he has taken for being a good free taker..

I really really believe Cillian O'Connor is massively underrated. Yeah he scores a lot of frees but come on don't just go by his free taking. In my opinion a classy forward, one of the best of recent years but only has 1 All Star
