Replying To lilylanger:  "Eh weren't you caught out a while ago as being from Kerry. Be odd if you weren't supporting them."
No Lily. Not sure how you came up with that. Unlike yourself, I am transparent & my county as listed is my county.

Replying To mayotyroneman:  "Outside of the competing counties there is actually zero interest in this game. I live in Tyrone and people are more concerned about the upcoming county quarter finals...in my home county of mayo people seem to have forgotten that the all Ireland is still being played for...my parents are from Galway and they are more concerned about who is going to be county managers next year and my wife is from Tipperary and they are still revelling in their hurling success..the country really couldn't care less"
Well thats a load of bull croke park will be full and the tv viewership will be as high as ever. your point has no logic

I have to laugh at journalists or ex players on podcasts and in papers saying the first game was exciting but poor on quality, they mustn't be watching gaa gold on TG4 or classic gaa on eir sport the games back in the day are so bad it's funny , the standard of referring is shocking , someone said on a podcast the 05 semi between Armagh v Tyrone was of great quality it's an exciting game but it's shocking quality wide after wide terrible ref performance aswell. The game has moved on so much since 05 even since 09 it's completely different, players are so much better now and in much better shape.

Replying To TheFlaker:  "Still is? Based on what? And calling him the GOAT as people do on here. That is fanboy stuff. How many times do I have to say he can be recognised as a class act but he has to be judged on his influence on the biggest days. That record is not great."
Few of yer lads with a similar record

Replying To TheHermit:  "Any word on any injuries for Dublin, is there doubts over Cian O'Sullivan and Small?"
looks like small might not make it

Replying To avonali:  "Apparently Small has a bad hand injury that will rule him out for Sunday. O'Sullivan is carry other injuries. Doubt he'll feature either.
Dublin light at the back now. Small is underestimated- he is a very solid natural defender."
Heard his thumb was heavily bandaged alright so yeah he'll be a loss for sure.

Replying To TheFlaker:  "And there we go, the last line just proves my point. Absolutely pointless debating it with you. I didnt even start this nonsense. I was trying to speak on the merits of 2019.

Anyway best of luck. And no I don't judge him on a few games against Keegan. Lots of lols for that one. As for the scoring thing? A penalty yeah? He got outscored heavily by his half back opponent overall in those games by the way.( you brought up the scores) .

And despite his brilliance he is nowhere near the GOAT as some claim. I might be corrected but I think he has scored 0-3 from play in total in all the finals he has started? Plus a further point as a sub in 17. Seeing as you started on about the scoring.

Connolly wouldn't be in my top 6 forwards since the millennium never mind of all time. But I guess you are as blinded from your side as I am by my Mayo heritage!"
Come on man, I think you have made some very fair points but watch the man play football he is fantastic and I've seen him do some astonishing things with a football in his hands. Range of passing, his vision, physically very strong and a defenders nightmare, one of if not the most two footed player I've seen ( the score the seal the game in the 2016 semi final against kerry on the left ) most players wouldn't even take that on with their preferred foot at that stage of a game never mind. Is their anything he can't do in fairness? He is a great

I remember that summer in Dublin, and the liffey as it stank like hell,
And the young people walking on Grafton street, and everyone looking so well,
I was singing a song I heard somewhere, called "Rock 'n' roll never forgets",
When my hummin' was smothered by a 46a and the scream of a low flying jet.
So I jumped on a bus to dun laoire, stoppin' off to pick up my guitar,
And a drunk on the bus told me how to get rich.
I was glad we weren't goin' too far.

Classic. Written by a Dundalk man. Bagatelle played at home many's a time, always a big crowd for them.

It's Autumn now though. We will see on Saturday if this Dublin team is on the Autumn of it's career.

Not arguing anymore. Never questioned his ability, I simply said he isn't anywhere in the conversation of the GOAT, THAT IS LITERALLY THE POINT i am making. People on here think he is and when they debate players from other counties they talk about their scoring and brilliant performances on the biggest days. It isn't unreasonable to question that, the stats are there, and I have seen him have minimal influence in a lot of finals. Nothing to do with what he can do with a ball sometimes, I am merely wondering why people don't judge him by the criteria they judge other forwards, never mind ones they consider all time great. Just my opinion based on what he has done in the big games. Never, ever questioned his ability.

He's been excellent in finals, pivotal in so many, 11, 13, 16, Keegan couldn't handle him, got the line, won and scored the resulting Peno he won the game for for Dublin in 17 in my opinion.

His performance in the All Ireland club final is the best individual performance I've seen in a club final.

I wouldn't accept he hasn't influenced finals significantly, it's not even close to the truth in my opinion, but I suppose it's ok to have different opinions really. ;)

Amazing how many medals he has won really, hopefully he has a few more in him.

No it is not' have you horrible memory?
The first point you tried to make that it was hilarious that Connolly could even be considered to start on Saturday.

That infact is hilarious, do yourself a favour and stop rambling on. In the messages since you have said numerous times that you only trying to make one point when infact you are just digging yourself a hole now as I presume you've realised your first message was absolute nonsense.

Nah mate that isn't it sorry to let you down. And yeah I think he shouldn't be on the panel never mind starting, not rambling I just don't see how someone can be considered the GOAT with 3-4 points from play in total from all his final appearances. My opinion.

Excellent in 11? 13 and 16. Come on now? Keegan could not handle him? Lol. He got a soft, soft black card lad, end of story. Not debating it anymore, his record from play is poor for someone ye call the Goat. My opinion.

Can you only be considered great if you are contributing solely in scoring terms ?
Not for me.
Just my opinion.

The term used was GOAT, so as a starting forward in multiple finals scoring might have to come into it yeah.
