I find it hard to disagree with this side. Maybe a case could be made for Anthony Thompson but who do you leave out? Christy Toye in the half forward line perhaps is another possibilty, really classy player. Shaun Patton and Jamie Brennan have been brilliant these past 2 years but not played enough in the past decade to warrant inclusion.

Close enough with Toye and Thompson pushing the 15.

An interesting question is team of the next 10 years from 2012 to 2022. I reckon a few of those current crop are more talented. Just need to match the 12 crop physically and emotionally.

Anthony Thompson a shoe in along with Toye as you point out. MacNialais a huge talent but achieved nothing close to Toye in Donegal colours.
