Can anyone stop David Moran and Neil Gallagher from collecting Allstars at midfield?

Both players were outstanding in 2014.

PROBABLY THE MOST straightforward line to pick on the field, Neil Gallagher and David Moran look nailed on to be chosen at midfield in this year’s selection.

Moran’s midfield display in the drawn game against Mayo will go down as one of the greatest performances o all-time at midfield, while Gallagher was easily been one of Donegal’s three best players on their run to the All-Ireland final.

Midfield nominees:
Neil Gallagher (Donegal)
Michael Darragh Macauley (Dublin)
Odhrán MacNiallais (Donegal)
Anthony Maher (Kerry)
David Moran (Kerry)
Séamus O’Shea (Mayo)
Sunday Game pundits chose:
Moran, Gallagher
Previous Allstars:
Macauley (2), Gallagher (1)

Seamus O’Shea and Odhrán MacNiallais both deserve a mention for their excellent seasons, but this one appears already wrapped up.

Agree? Who were the two best midfielders in the country this year?

Poll Results:

 David Moran (497)
Neil Gallagher (228)
 Séamus O’Shea (146)
 Odhrán MacNiallais (117)
 Anthony Maher (100)
 Michael Darragh Macauley (68)

Should Paul Durcan be forgiven for his All-Ireland mistake and awarded an Allstar?

Keith Higgins and Neil McGee are certs, but who will complete the Allstar full-back line?

Do Aidan O’Mahony, Peter Crowley and Colm Boyle deserve Allstars on the half-back line?
