Of the more recent old guard...
Brian Kelly, Mark Griffin, John Lyne, Mike Geaney, Barry John Keane, all not good enough! End of story.
Of the so called newer guard...
Conor Keane, (Legions version of Kieran O' Leary, not good enough for this level) Adrian Spillane, (at best not ready yet)
At this point, I would take the very best of the U21's (the recent additions and ones brought in this year, have been great) and the very best of our seniors and that's the only panel that wins an All-Ireland, lack of goals in 2015, lack of goals in 2016, 2 games into 2017 and you feel kerry players would fist the ball over the bar with an empty net staring at them in the face, not good enough.
Winning this game would have been a statement, and they bottled it.
Fitzmaurice, my opinion, not good enough yet, he has the potential, but he's lacking, and it shows in his teams performance.
There are no excuses for losing this game, losing O' Donoghue before the game, Geaney and Young early on, no excuse.
And what to make of O' Donoghue, you cannot build a winning team around players who are more absent than present.
Correct in everything you have said. BJK is now 27? And he still hasn't made it? Why persistent? It's the same across the board for several players. JOD, we would be better off planning without him, one good season really. When we are talking about missing players like killian young as having an affect on team things must be very bad!
Anyway not many people here will agree with you or me. Most still think now average players still have a place in the kerry squad going on past achievements. We are lucky that the standard of football across the country is so bad or else we wouldn't be making it past 1/4 finals!
Are ye f*ckin serious? BJK not good enough? Scored 1-3 from play last night, and from the bench at that. If that was Paul Geaney or JOD, fellas would be raving about it.
Dunno why but he's a popular target for people on here. Seems to me he always contributes energy and scores when he gets on. I'd love to see individual stats on scores per minutes played over the past few years; I'd be willing to bet BJK would be pretty high up on the list.
