10 Michael Donnellan The most talented footballer from Connacht in last 50 years
11 Trevor Giles The best playmaker , passer of the ball in the last 4 decades
12 Pat Spillane One of the greatest forwards of all time
13 Mikey Sheedy One of greatest forwards of all time
14 Matt Connor The most talented gaelic footballer ever , the george best of gaelic football
15 Peter Cavanan Sean O Neill and Peter Cavanan are the two greatest forwards ever to come from Ulster

thats the best 6 forwards I have saw play in each position .


Here is my Forwards for this year.

10 Brian Howard Best wing forward in football , a leader and brilliant athlete. Underated.
11 Sean O Shea Going to be one of the players of his generation. Very talented and also future kerry all Ireland winning captain
12 Michael Murphy Donegals greatest player and Best Ulster footballer of his generation
13 Con Callaghan The Jimmy Barry Murphy of Dublin. Tommy Walsh says he best hurler in the country. Has the ability and talent to become greatest forward Dublin have ever produced in football.
14 Cathal McShane Pound for pound the best full forward in Ireland. best target man also.
15 Paul Mannion A stylish clever skilful inside forward. One of best inside forwards Dublin have produced in last 20 years."
In terms of raw ability, in his prime for a brief glorious period in the 70s before he emigrated and before lifestyle got in the way, best I've ever seen Frank McGuigan. Uncoachable stuff.

Replying To lionofludesch:  "Great player."
Played against McGuigan back in the day. Fantastic one the best .
Give one of the greatest exhibitions in 1984 Ulster final.
Mickey Linden of Down was another genius. Off the cuff player.
Mannion and Clifford and O Callaghan are 3 exceptional players at the moment. Worth the entrance fee alone .
