Mayo really should have 12-14 Allstars this year.
Most teams have played 4-6 matches
Mayo will have played 10
Most mayo players have played very well in 6 matches
No other players have played well in more than 4 matches

Very simple maths really

You could apply that stay in many other ways in that many of the Mayo players have had at least 2 poor games this year whereas the Dublin players have been consistently good and had no bad games

Replying To poguemahone:  "Don't know. Saved a semi final penalty which is as big as it gets in saving terms for a keeper. Point blank and important save in the Leinster final. Saved a few thrown at him by Monaghan. Clark got more 'stops practice' as Mayo played poorly in their earlier games but not much Cluxton can do about that. Again it is Cluxton's kick outs that keeps him consistently good. His first kick out (superb one to pick out Scully) on Sunday lead directly to Dublin's first score. Not much between the two and reckon the final will decide who gets the all star."
Clarke got All-Star last year after being dropped for final!!

McCarthy is player of the year so far. And people have Parsons in the team ahead of him! I've lost faith in humanity!

1 Clarke\Cluxton if neither outperforms the other then cluxton.
2 Higgins .Guaranteed
3 Cian O'Sullivan(McNamee slight chance)
4 Probably Fitzsimons lesser chance cooper barret harrisson
5 Colm Boyle
6 Tiernan McCann
7 Jack Mc Caffrey If this isn't the half back line there is something wrong
8 James Mc Carthy
9 Parsons\colm Cavanagh\ aidan osea Parsons is my favourite but if osea has a good game he could take it.
10 Kevin McGloghlan
11 Ciarain Kilkenny
12 Paul Mannion
13 Andy Moran
14 Paul Geaney
15 Con O'Callaghan
That full forward line though !!!!

In my opinion you start this team with McCarthy & Parsons and fill everyone in around them How some can say Cavanagh beats me he played as a defender The 2 mentioned have proven themselves time and time again Mayo in particular have been a shambles when Parsons hasn't played McCarthy no need to say anything about him Been a rock for Dublin

Both McCarthy and Parsons should be selected, Mayo have nine championship games played
this year, I expect they will do well in regard to All-Star selection this year.

Parsons is too slow and makes mistakes

Agree with that team, on reflection only change i would have is Colm Cavanagh instead of Parsons. Obvsiously final could change things, There is always one unsung bolter who nabs an allstar out of nowhere based on a good final

Is O'Callaghan eligible for YPOTY?
A shoe in if he is, which means he'll probably miss out on the All Star as they generally don't give them both in football.

Mayo will get more than four All-Stars this year as they won and drew matches as
a result of many outstanding individual performances, They will have played ten
championship matches this year which is a wonderful opportunity to show case
their outstanding players.

I won't be surprised if the All Stars largely mirror the Sunday Gane team if last night, 7 Dubs 7 Mayo and 1 Kerry give a fair assesment of where football is at right now

Would agree with the majority of Sunday Game selection but would think Dean Rock, Colm Kavanagh , Kieran Donaghy and Ciaran Kilkenny are in with a good shout.
