Surely there’s clear front runners for both awards. thoughts? Mine Would be Fenton for POTY and Howard for YPOTY. Both savage all year, Fenton the engine for dublin this year. his first year aside, hes playing the best football hes played for dublin to date. Howard second year with the seniors if you want to count last years two games, Put his hand up right from the obyrne cup, only missing out on one game with them this year and that being the roscommon game. hes showed great leadership and fight all year, for such a young player hes been crucial player for the dubs this year and showed how he can adapt playing forward and back superb player, two man of match proformances back to back and every other game playing out of his skin, definitely a shoe in for the award. David Clifford will be a huge contestant for it too, as that kid is straight from the kerry footballing gods but i would have to stick with Howard for this one.
Will depend on how the final goes but Fenton and CIaran Kilkenny would be favorites at moment to at least be nominated . As we know the vote is decided by players which is flawed - and nothing beats winning an all Ireland medal !
Clifford will get a huge push from the media. Has to win at least one if these awards. Ok I take the chances of him winning the potty are slim if any but after Clark winning the goal keeping all Star last year I think anything is possible.
And he got two attempts at it - first one we won the break just as it was blown up for the pulling and dragging. Cue second attempt, he doesn’t even look to his left just hoists it up and pushes it straight over the line.
