Your numbering is askew and ya have two Cualas.

That’s very good @daddyo.

It’s a cruel thread. Pick Jamesy, no Deano, no Philly. Pick Bernard, no Alan. Pick Brian, no other Brian. Pick Con, no Mick Fitz. Pick Mannion, no Cian, no Rory. Pick Jonny, no Tomás Brady, no Murch.

Vins, Skerries, Jude’s, Parnells, Fingallians, Castleknock, Clontarf and Olaf’s all pick themselves.

Like trying to choose between your children really. Have to find room for Howard. Not having Flynn and Dean makes me feel dirty but I’m sure they won’t care.

Player of decade is easy - James MacCarthy. IMO.

Edit; only noticing club thing now! Too late.

Yeah, it’s the one per club thing that makes it so tough.

You realise you are giving culchies ideas here . 1 player per club . Only a matter of time before Donegal propose this unusual Dublin specific rule.

FWIW

Cluxton

Fitzsimmoms
Roc
Cooper

McCarthy
Cullen
Mccaffrey

Fenton
McAuley

Flynn
Kilkenny
Connolly

B Brogan
Andrews
Kev mac

And 3 ballymunners

Maybe MDMA for Denis - otherwise as good as it gets

Keeper is a tough one

Cluxton
Byrne
Cooper
Daly
McCaffrey
McCarthy
Lowndes
Fenton
MacAuley
Flynn
Connolly
Kilkenny
Mannion
Con
McManamon

By no means the best Dublin team possible. No fitzsimons Howard Small Rock osullivan Murchan. Wouldn’t have mcmanamon macauley lowndes or daly anywhere near my actual team of the decade.

Read the opening post

I did big man what’s the problem

Pick your best 15 of the last 10 years but you can only pick one player from each club

If he has Con 1 no Fitz.
Fenton - no Howard.
McCarthy - no Rock or Small.
Cooper - no Murch

Well ya that’s what I did. I meant that its strange picking a team without those players which I did.

Do you not like Plunketts? :wink:

Sure what did those brogan lads ever do?

I remember the brother giving out about them after Alan went off injured v Tyrone in 08 very early in the game , “ do those fuckers take turns to do their hamstrings “ . An uncle of man ( @ Yodas Da) only accepted Alan was a good player post 2011 :sweat_smile:. Me , I always thought they were great …
