2018 All Ireland SFC Final; Dublin v Tyrone, Sunday 2nd September, Croke Park, 3:30pm


#3213

Unfortunately/fortunately, the Sunday Game panelists don’t have any voting power.

Unless the nomination/voting process has changed, it’s one vote per media organization. RTE have two, one for radio and one for TV. Newstalk have one. (NT’s is Dave McIntyre. No idea who RTE’s are.) None of TSG panelists would have a vote. The newspaper voters would be their regular, accredited GAA journos & not the former players ‘writing’ their weekly columns.


#3214

Folks, when are the All Stars on?


#3215

True but does Cluxton give a shite ?

He won five, three of them as a loser in terms of AI success

Since his last one in 2013, he’s lifted trophies 14 times as captain, 4 of them as a All Ireland champion


#3216

Yea but he hasn’t an O’Byrne Cup


#3217

Niall Morgan will be the winner then :wink:


#3218

There have been periods of major games in the past when Cluxton too has struggled with finding his man, though he has also always come good in the end (except 2015 semifinal drawn game) partly because of the quality of the receivers he has which must also be taken into account.

The difference a year makes! Not one Mayo man!


#3221

James nominated in defence … :roll_eyes:


#3222

I wonder is Murch more excited about the All Star nomination, or about collecting his Junior Cert results later on today? :sunglasses:
Seriously though, it’s a great achievement for him!


#3223

I would agree with that - however i’m talking about this year.


#3224

Dark horse there , apparently played a blinder in one of the qualifiers too .


#3225

Murchan marked that boys card.


#3226

That’s a good sign as more chance of him getting an All Star as centre back than midfield.

Fento and Cavanagh will be the midfielders


#3227

Six forwards, must be our best ever nominations at that end.


#3228

We’ll win 7 (Cooper, James, Jack, Fenton, CK ,Howard Mannion) with Cluxton likely seen to have won too much already


#3229

Aye in all likelihood despite the fact that Cavanagh didn’t really play in midfield either.


#3230

Twice!


#3231

What are ye rearing up there at all @upthedall ?

From interview with Sean Cavanagh

‘ The former footballer, who runs an accountancy firm, addressed questions about politics and having an Irish identity.

“I would probably call myself Irish,” he said‘

Jesus, that’s big of him!
