Blatantly robbing the idea from the Nationalist

                         Shane Connolly
Peter Kelly     Mick Foley  Andrew  Maclochlainn

Emmet Bolton Morgan O Flaherty Mickey Conway

                Darryl Flynn Johnny Doyle

Eamon Callaghan  Eoghan O Flaherty  Ronan Sweeney

         James Kavanagh Dan Flynn  Alan Smith

Most from the early part of the decade, which highlights our poor form over the last number of years even though we have   been good at underage.

Lads, Lads, Lads.... Where’s Earley? Dempsey played one senior season and Masterson played a couple of league games, off the bench 😂😂😂😂

Dempsey & Masterson are already two of the most decorated Kildare players of the century.

Dermot Earley at his best in previous decade & would say that himself.

Nothing stopping ye picking your own teams either lads!

Paul Cribbin was unstoppable in 2018... Hopefully he’s back flying in the new year. We badly missed him last season.

I'm liking the look of that Murof. No disrespect to Smithy but i would have Kavanagh instead. One other comment, i always felt McGrillen was wasted in the backs. Remember him storming up field many times and scoring some sweet points. Maybe right-half forward would have suited him better.

Was a toss up between Smith and Kavanagh indeed. Fully agree on McGrillen, think he could have been a great half forward. We had some fine players in Mcgeeney era and were desperately unlucky not to win something.

You know the way soccer clubs often have a latin phrase on their badge.

Think you may have stumbled on an addition to Kildare's crest there Murof. Can anyone with a bit of Latin translate, "We had some fine players in that era and were desperately unlucky not to win something"?

Surprised Lyons hasn't featured in many teams, fantastic man-marker on his day. 12 of the 15 are from the McGeeney era which is a sad endictment of the last six years performances.

Lyons had some fantastic moments for Kildare and would put the fear of god into teams with his pacy attacking from deep. Probably didn’t end great in his last two games with Bernard Brogan & Jamie Clarke going to town.

Still, wouldn’t argue with him or MacLochlainn being included. Great servants.
