I would have absolutely loved to have won an All-Star. For any footballer they are, individually, an incredible accolade. A timeless honour for years of dedication. A great reward to parents, teachers, mentors and clubmates who all helped polish a diamond, over decades.

Forgive the contradiction but I also think the All-Stars are an absurdity. Bear with me.
