7. John Galvin
9. Colm not quite kicking on like we hoped he would this year
10. Jamie Wall
2. Kerrigan? Noone really jumps out
3. DOC in the final (from the angle) or Goold against Kerry replay
4. Cavan I suppose. No real "great" 70 min performance.
5. Goulding in the final
6. Dublin semi
7. B. Brogan
9. Lynchs injury costing him the chance of winning a medal on the pitch.
10. Barry O'Driscoll or Sean Kiely.
Some Might Say We Will Find a Brighter Day
1. Best player - Shields. Consistent all year long.
2. Most improved player - Donnacha O'Connor, from howler free against Kerry to ice cool free taking against the Dubs, to best forward on pitch in second half of All Ireland final.
3. Best score - Gouldings first point, Corks first from play in the final.
4. Best team performance - Strange one, no complete 70 minutes all year bar the Cavan game, who never turned up.
5. Best individual performance - Donnacha in final
6. Best game - Dublin, incredible atmosphere, last 20 minutes were special for a Cork Football fan.
7. Best opposing player - Brogan
8. Soul of Cork football award - The entire panel
9. Biggest disappointment - The relentless criticism thrown at this team all year by bandwagoning supporters. While some of it is fair, most of it was pure bullshit.
10. Man of the future - Ciaran Sheehan, closely followed by Aidan Walsh... when these lads mature, they'll be unstoppable.
1. Best player - Michael Shields.
2. Most improved player - Donncha O'Connor.
3. Best score - O'Connor's point from the angle against Down on 66 minutes
4. Best team performance - Ten minute spell after half-time in Wexford to score 0-04 without reply when playing into a gale and driving rain.
5. Best individual performance - Daniel Goulding, All-Ireland Final.
6. Best game - Cork v Dublin.
7. Best opposing player - Bernard Brogan.
8. Soul of Cork football award - The minor team recovering from nine-points down with 15 minutes to go to beat Galway. So long as we have young lads like that wearing the Cork jersey with pride then the future of gaelic football in the county will be fine.
9. Biggest disappointment - Conceding that last minute equalizing point in the manner that we did in the replay against Kerry in Pairc Ui Chaoimh.
10. Man of the future - Ciaran Sheehan, an impressive debut season but this guy has the potential to be one of the all-time great Cork forwards.
1. Shields was probably the most consistent, but I'd say the most important player was Nicholas.
3. Goulding from play in the AI final?
4. If we're allowed to choose part of a match, then from 30 to 60 mins in the final.
5. DOC, AI final.
6. Kerry replay.
7. Paul Galvin. Antics aside, he was phenomenal in the replay.
8. The whole panel for coming through, particularly the way they held their nerve to edge so many tight games.
9. Failing to put Kerry away in either game, and playing so poorly for long spells in the semi and final.
10. Wouldn't be as familiar with the underage players. I'll go with Jamie O'Sullivan - started well, eased off the team, but I'd expect him to be an important player, especially if Cadogan stays with the hurlers and Shields (as I expect he will) is moved out to hb.

4. The performance against Cavan in atrocious conditions

6. Dublin in the semi final will live long in the memory.

8. Conor Counihan, Ger O'Sullivan, Terry O'Neill and Peadar Healy
9. Throwing away a five point lead in the Munster semi final replay
