No doubts about this one. With his 1-5 haul from play, Andy Moran is by popular claim our Man of the Match from yesterday’s heart-stopping All-Ireland semi-final draw against Kerry.
Andy got 69% of the vote, followed by Jason Doherty (10%), Keith Higgins (6%), Tom Parsons (3%) and Colm Boyle (2%). Boyler was, to be honest, a bit short-changed in the poll, as I only noticed a few hours after it’d gone live that I hadn’t included him (I’d put Lee Keegan’s name in twice by mistake – he’s good but not that good). Had he been in from the start he’d definitely have featured a bit higher up the list.
There’s no disputing, though, Andy’s deserving win in this particular MOTM poll. Well done to him and to the rest of the lads too for what was a really gutsy performance at Croke Park yesterday. Here’s hoping they finish the job in Saturday’s replay.
By the way, it looks as if this poll will be the final MOTM one (for now at least) under the current set-up. There was a generally positive reaction to my proposal to change the voting to a top three format and so I think we’ll go with that for the replay and see how it goes. Thanks all for your helpful feedback on the proposal.
