Another feature of those years was Willie McCreery's fluffed goal chances - he usually missed a sitter in each match. The Sunday Game could have done a compilation - McCreery's Greatest Misses.

Willie was never in that team to score - a man of granite. But his engine meant he invariably got into fantastic positions!

Yes McCreery was an outstanding midfielder.

During the epic run in 98, me and my friends used to joke that Kildare were the France of Gaelic football, who of course were en route to winning the World Cup.

McCreery was Deschamps and Buckley was Zidane. And like France, we had no marquee striker!
