    He is a baller. Serious big game player. First person to come to mind when I see 'underrated'.

    This guy is a colossus. In my eyes the clear MVP on one of the greatest teams of all time, at least as far as outfield players are concerned. If Kerry are playing Dublin in an All Ireland final and I can pick one guy to be missing it's James McCarthy.

    I would suggest that Paul Murphy is still underrated. The guy is mind-bogglingly good in every game.

    As bad a dose of stockholm syndrome as I have seen :P

    McCarthy is Dublin's MVP when it comes to those clutch moments when a tight game is in the balance.

    He seems to particularly drive on when it's most needed.

    I only think he's underrated in terms of a team that is laden with all time greats.

    What team wouldn't give you their right arm to have a Brian Fenton in their team?

    You can say that again :D

    Rory beggan goal keeper for monaghan. Hasn't leaked a goal this league campaign. Very strategic kickouts, played sweeper against Kerry and good for at least 1 point a game.

    He has really started to come into his own and is holding his place. Was inclined a bit to put the head down and run into blind alleys, but is getting a lot cleverer in his use of the ball. Only really hitting the age now when forwards develop the guild and maturity to become even more effective.

    On his day he seems almost unmarkable. Blinding pace and a very sweet strike on him. Annoyingly, he seems to be getting better and better too... more consistent anyway.

    "Big Geoffrey" McGonagle who was a dual player for Derry in the late 90s and early 2000s. His brother managed Dublin ladies.

    Tipperary footballer Brian Fox. His work rate in every game is immense. Great brain for the game and intelligent use of the ball. Very unlucky not to win an All-Star 2 years ago when Tipp reached the semi-final, a game i'm still convinced they would have won if Stephen O'Brien had not committed to hurling that year.
    Any with a shade of luck they would have won it anyway.!!
