After waiting for six weeks for a game, now Mayo have two matches in the space of a week with the Round 2 Qualifier against Kildare fixed for Croke Park next Saturday. To preview this do-or-die knockout meeting with the Lilywhites, Rob is joined on the pod by former Mayo footballer Donie Vaughan and Michael Foley of the Sunday Times.
The lads cover a lot of ground over the course of the show, including taking an overall look at the state of play in the All-Ireland Series, what they made of Mayo’s performance against Monaghan, and how next weekend’s game is likely to play out.
Donie also gives a great insight into the Mayo squad’s mindset for these sort of knock-out Championship matches and talks about James Horan’s management style and approach during Donie’s time in the Mayo colours.
