    Question Rovers best 11 since 1994/ 1995

    Just looking to see if any of you's can voice your opinions on this matter, i am new to this message board and although hailing from county meath i have been watching rovers since the days of Dermot Keely's reign.I'm sure some of you will think i'm way of the mark

    Anyway here's my choice

    1 O'hara
    2 Cretaro
    3 Brunton ?????
    4 Boyle
    5 McNamara
    6 Hastie ( Whatever happened to him)
    7Kenny (johnny that is)
    8 O'grady
    9Annand
    10 Mctiernan
    11 Faz ( purely judged on ability)

    Subs Mulligan, Carr, Birks,Tony Kelly ( probably one of the greatest passers of the ball i have ever seen) , Padraig Moran, :

    Yep, good selection, Hutch and Charles definately deserve mentions. I would have Mark McLean as sub keeper though, with the greatest respect to Nicky I still cringe when I think back on some of his dodgier moments! I remember him trying to keep out a long range shot, it was against Shels I think and whatever he did he seemed to help the ball into the net rather than trying to save it! Johnny Kenny wouldn't be far away either. Whatever happened to James Mulligan by the way, didn't he transfer to Cork from Rovers and he then seemed to fall off the radar?
    The fight is won or lost far away from witnesses - behind the lines, in the gym, and out there on the road, long before I dance under those lights.

    We also had a decent centre half that could be included Dale Hawtin

    Im judging the following team on technical ability and what i have seen of them play. A good team either way.

    O' Hara
    Creataro
    Mc Namara
    Dykes
    Brunton
    Johnny Kenny
    Will Hastie
    O' Grady
    A. Dolan
    Moran
    Gabbiadini

    Subs : Brujos, Boyle, Faz, Carr, Mc Tiernan

    Defense has both experience and youth and are all good footballers apart from Dykes maybe. But he would get stuck in. Mc Namara more of a Ferdinand type defender and Dykes a John Terry. Cretaro and Brunton both have good skill and are direct and good at getting forward. The midfield has superb passing ability. O Grady can play the holding role giving Dolan the chance to influence the game. Johnny would give us pace and skill aswell as experience. Will Hastie right side for pure fight and goal getting abiltiy. Up front i think there is goals in abundance. both have pace, an eye for goal and are big fellas which is needed in Irish Football!
