Replying To gallarus14:  "That's a good point as I remember reading that Jimmy mcguinness had to do a lot of fund raising by himself back in 2014."
And then along came Kerry with all their sponsors and professional players to shatter their dreams. Awful stuff.

Replying To catch22:  "Argument, there's no argument at all.
The panel that adjudged O Shea to be the young player of the year.
Sure there's no argument about it lad it's all done and dusted. You don't have to take my word on it it's their opinion that counts.
O Shea got his award on merit for his contribution over the year. That's why it's called " young player of the year "
QED."
Sure, if 'it's their opinion that counts' why are posters discussing these subjects at all? The fools, offering opinions when the whole thing is settled by the 'panel'. Thanks for clearing that up. Let's close down the forum; there's no need for any discussion. It's all settled by the 'panel'.

You started by saying that O Shea was "definitely" better than Clifford. That annoyed me as I could see no basis for such a statement. Meanwhile, I have put forward arguments to show that Clifford is at least as good as O Shea. (BTW, I don't say that he is better). No one has been able to make a rational case that O Shea is better: vague statements that O Shea is a better 'all-round' player - without explaining how that is the case - are useless.

And, insulting posters by calling them 'lad', 'good man', maith an fear', 'bud', etc is out of place here and displays a fairly childish mentality.
