Colfer didn't play in this decade retired in 08 or 09 I think, matty actually only played in 2010 but he's arguably the best ever wexford footballer so has to be picked."
Adrian Flynn was a far better defender than forward thats pretty obvious, ya wasn't to sure about colfer, how could anyone leave Lee chin off the team of the decade is beyond me,

5 inches taller? Some load of rubbish how some lads are so preoccupied with height. If he'd managed to stay injury free he'd have been unplayable.

Flynn played in every line bar full back line, very versatile player, anyway I could easily play him wing back, malone midfield and put Bradley wing forward. Don't think chin did enough in a wexford football jersey to get in the team, if he was picked you could make a case for the likes of Simon donohoe aswel

I know Flynn played in a lot of different positions , but I said he was a far better wing back than a forward that's obvious, chin was very good for Wexford for a few seasons against top teams, I pick lads on their ability and how they played for Wexford not how much games they played

Never taught chin really stood out for wexford in football, he's carried a poor sarsfields team the last few years alright. If I was picking lads on ability shore and guiney would have made my hurling team.

So you pick lads on number of appearances instead of their ability ??

But picking a team on ability is a folly, you pick a team on what they have delivered, how much they give to the cause, and if they have given their all.
You could not say that for any of the above.

I never started the thread that the football team deserved, but I would pick the exact same xv as well

And that's why I didn't pick either of them

15. Rory Jacob

If only we had backs of that caliber now, I don't think we'd need a sweeper."
The sweeper isn't about making up for not having good backs. It's about creating space and free men to try work the ball up the pitch and get more scores as much as having an extra defender. It's about defenders having a simple out ball to someone unmarked who can pick a pass forward instead of the old fashioned aimless monster puck up the pitch......

Replying To StoreysTash:  "I agree re Ciaran Kenny ahead of Kehoe but Moore no way. How anyone can put Jack Guiney on a team of the decade I don't know."
Agreed 100%. Jack Guiney only played a handful of games and was only really good in a couple of them. 1 really good cross field pass to set up a score in Wexford Park the only time I thought "Fxxk that amazing"!

Rory O and Eoin Quigley scored most of their points from play..

By your own figures Jack only scored 2.05 more than Rory in 3 extra games. 2.05 in 3 games is not a great return from a forward who was on frees. Especially as Rory does alot more covering back than Jack did. Eoin Quigley played alot of his games out around the centre of the park too.....

Sorry my figures were actually off. Here's list of who majority of people have on they're team of decade and what they scored.

gizzy 1-36 0-26 from frees 5 games played 2.6 average from play

quigley 1-4 0-1 from frees 13 games played 3 as sub 0.6 average from play in 10 games 0.46 in 13 games

jacob 9-34 22 games played 2.7 average

guiney 5-69 1-53 from frees 19 games played 1 as sub 1.5 average from play in 18 games 1.47 in 19 games

morris 4-67 0-24 from frees 32 games played 1.7 average from play

mac 11-95 0-38 from frees 29 games played 3.1 average from play

chin 3-102 0-70pts from frees 30 games played 1.36 average from play

roc 2-57 0-35pts from frees 12 games played 2.3 average from play

Guiney scored 4-16 from play in 18 game plus 1 appearance for 5 mins as sub. ROC scored 2-22 from play in 12 games. 7 of rocs games out of 12 he played in full forward line guiney played 5 out of 19 in full forward line.
Quigley played 3 of those games in midfield rest as centre wing or full forward. Now 3 of those games he came on as a sub for 10 mins.

As you can see from above guiney actually has better average than Quigley and chin so would you not agree it should be justified that guiney should be on the team??

On another note just shows how much of scoring machine Mac is. Better score average than lar Corbett and Eddie Brennan

Mac is brilliant. And you didn't mention how he usually occupies 2 backs! Rory O Connor might've been named at 14 in alot of games but anyone who has watched Wexford over the last few years will have seen how little time he actually plays inside. Eoin Quigley played alot of his intercounty hurling out the middle of the park as does Lee Chin. But all 3 get or got stuck in and covered alot more ground than Jack did in his intercounty days. I'm not saying any of the 3 of then are necessarily better hurlers than Jack. But a team of the decade is about who did most for the county in their position when they played. Not who scored most necessarily.
