National - David Clifford to surpass the Gooch?

Replying To Damothedub:  "Clifford WILL outpass the Gooch most likely in a BMW on the M50 south bound,"

Well jod was the one hit wonder :-)"
Do not agree with you there. Gooch was an excellent player and won his first AI against an average Mayo team. I was very close to the incident when he scored his first goal - he pushed the Mayo corner back and the Ref did not see it - pretty normal for Refs in AI's -just like the Murphy incident! DC is a very good player and has played against the Dubs just as the Gooch. I do not remember his marker in any match scoring 1-2!!

gooch has done it all. club county all stars, player of the year.generally regarded as one of,if not the best corner forward ever? very unfair on the young man who has his career in front of him to be mentioning him in the same sentence as the gooch. call back in 10 years and we will see!!

Indeed a lot of awards alright.
However, just a note on the player of the year award which many top players never win. He never won the GAA All stars player of the year which is the seen as the official award.
Clifford is only starting out and may or may not make the grade but that's for many years down the road.
