Not necessarily the best in the particular positions, but if I had to pick a team for a match, I'd try an attack minded line up like this:

1. Martin Furlong
2. Cathal Daly
3. Paddy McCormack
4. Finbar Cullen
5. Eugene Mulligan
6. Ciaran McManus
7. Karol Slattery
8. James Grennan
9. Willie Bryan
10. Tony McTague
11. Vinny Claffey
12. Frank Weir
13. Matt Connor
14. Niall McNamee
15. Peter Brady

good team to, but i would find it hard to find a place for Frank Weir who only played 1 or 2 league games, not saying if he had to put his mind to it he would be on the best 15.

A place should be found for Weir on any team in Ireland!

have to say i never say p mccormack w bryan k kilmurry t mctague c heavey or n clavin play but i dont think many would dispute that p mc cormack w bryan t mctague or k kilmurry were 4 of offalys best . n clavin and c heavey have huge respect so this is my changed team
m furlong
c daly
p mccormack
f cullen
j kenny
s lowry
l currams
w bryan
r connor
j mooney
k kilmurry
t mctague
v claffey
m connor
p brady

lads to be fair f weir had great potental but he never play a championship game for offaly so lads like b lowry c quinn c mcmanus k slattery s grennan j grennan and n mcnamee would be way ahead of him on the list .

Finbarr Cullen had his say on this recently. Here's the teams he picked as listed on his club website.
