Amidst the desert of non-news about the team that we’re currently in, The Mayo News provides an oasis of sorts in the form of a quote from Johnno that’s worth repeating. That’s worth repeating. That’s worth repeating … Sorry, almost fell off my camel there. I’m not sure I like the use of the word “hopeful” here and when The Deputy goes on to say “we’d like to see him play a bit of ball before Sunday week as there’s a difference between being fit and being match fit” he kinda gives the game away. It looks like Mort will line out but he won’t be anywhere near 100% ready for the game. And after all this waiting too.
The same Mayo News piece says that James Nallen is delighted to have received his pension book Alan Dillon and Kieran Conroy both picked up knocks in club matches at the weekend. Johnno doesn’t say he’s hopeful about either of them so I think we can take this as a good sign.
And that’s it. Sorry, faithful camel, that was no oasis, just another mirage.
