A once proud football county's fans picking a team of the decade from a bunch not fit to speak the names of the greats. Sad really. And before the abuse starts the very same can be said of every Galway player of the decade.

Like a lot of things in life gaa is cyclical, the teams being selected are from a different era of the great success that was 86 to 99. There are some fine footballers in a lot of counties who might never win big, thats life. Don't make little of players who have achieved a lot more than most

2 Seamus Lavin
3 Kevin Reilly,
4 Donal Keoghan
5 Sham Kenny
6 Brian Menton
7 Padraig Harnan
8 Ciaran Gillespie
9 Shane O'Rourke
10 Graham Reilly
11 Stephen Bray
12 Peadar Byrne,
13 Cian Ward
14 Joe sheridan
15 Brian Farrell

Think we could all agree the 6 Forwards were the best for the last decade , you can switch some of the positions but these are the best we had , All had a bit of class about them

Backs were a bit more difficult

Menton could easily go into Midfield either
All HB are great for driving forwards and can win breaking ball either
FB line - 2 of the two best man markers in the county and Reilly was a colossus"
Out of all Iv read this would be my pick also.

There's no way a TEAM OF THE DECADE can include Kevin Reilly over Conor McGill.
