National - Start Diarmuid Connolly or not?

Replying To neverright:  "Don't think he is good enough to start but could have a part to play coming off the bench long after the early 'exchanges' have been sorted out."
There may well be many reasons for not starting Connolly against Tyrone, but to suggest he is not good enough to play is definitely not one of them. Whether you like or hate him, Connolly is one of the best natural footballers in the country.

100% start him if hes going well in training..we have enough impact subs on the bench we dont need another one..in form hes the best in the country. big games need big players..i think he'll raring to go against tyrone..forget about the liability crap,sure if thats the case you'd never start him again..gavin might not name him in the line up..but i reckon he'll get the nod..up dublin..

I wouldn't be playing him at all until he improves his discipline

He has to start. I agree with a previous poster who said that we have enough impact subs. Brogan, mcmanamon are the ones to bring on to change a game.

Struggling with the old grey matter, I see. If you get it sorted, tell us who you would drop to accommodate Connolly.

The obvious one to lose out from the forwards that started against Monaghan would be Eric Lowdnes.
