PostSubject: Kildare Player of the Decade(s)   Sun Dec 10, 2017 4:05 am

Running a little poll over the next six weeks on Twitter to select Kildare's Player of the Decade for the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90,s and 00's followed by a Grand Final poll in Week 6.

Starting this week with the '90s.   The short-list is (alphabetically!) Niall Buckley, Martin Lynch, Anthony Rainbow and Glenn Ryan.

Twitter polls only seem to allow four candidates before you all @ me !  Hard to leave out Dermot in particular but only there for the latter part of the decade. His day will come...

Vote on Twitter:

I'll also do a write-up each week on kildaregaa365.com

One short of 300 votes in Jim and it looks like most agree with you (54% to Nuckser’s 28%)

Thought Nuckser might have been closer but perhaps the Sash lads are keeping off Twitter given the week that’s in it..

Nuckers was excellent obviously and stylish but Rainbow for his consistent good performance is very close.

Glad to see Glen on top, only JD comes close to him in recent years imo. Outstanding in 92 Leinster final when we were being over run by Dublin when only 19 or 20 years old. Others that came through around the same time played their best football in Micko's second term but he was brilliant throughout the early 90's. Never thought we got the best out of Buckley or Lynch.

I think it depends what way you look at it for an all round player that digs in like a Roy Keane in Soccer then Glen Ryan for me but if it is for being an outstanding footballer like a Messi etc Niall Buckley all day.

Rainbow might get in the noughties short list he was around virtually for two complete decades! Tough competition in noughties too though. I’d hate to be the one trying to shortlist 4 per decade!

People used to give about Lynch in Micko's first period, but in his second era he was one of the leaders along with, well, Buckley, Ryan, Rainbow.

I always remember second replay against Meath 97, bucketing rain, Meath got a brilliant start and we were on our knees. Someone was taking a free in our half, Lynch dropped deep and said, 'Give it to me'. Soloed up the field and drove over a point from about 40 yards. He did stuff like that all the time – first game against Dublin the next year, absolutely destroyed their defence. Then the legendary pass for Murphy, the barnstorming performance against Kerry, leading the charge again v Dubs in 2000 replay.

Make no mistake, he did the state some service. But for me it's G Ryan. Possibly two best individual performances for Kildare I've ever seen were in 97 - Ryan v Laois, Buckley v Meath in first replay. Feely in Leinster final this year another barnstormer actually, it's up there.
