I did also say that O’Gara’s goal efforts in the last few years have been as good as most of our forwards, only Kevin better, and Mannion has done well from less chances/appearances.
Whilst I spoke about his awkwardness, in major championship games especially he has been very effective running with the ball given the chance, and linking the play. Also doesn’t run down blind alleys too much. All excellent attributes, not to be taken for granted, along with the obvious stuff, effective target-man, breaking tackles, big game composure.
The only question is will he get the chance to get his shooting back up to standard? (It is noted that in fairness Clarke is the most difficult keeper to get a shot past at that level.)
