Conor gave an interview with the Irish Daily Mail today, which Setanta and Hogan Stand have both picked up on, where he reveals that he has now returned to full training with the county panel and says that he’s expecting to line out against Sligo on Sunday week. He reckons that any sharpness that might have been missing due to his recent absence from club games will have been rectified by his return to training but he cautions that, if he’s not 100% fit on June 22nd, he won’t play.
His final quote is revealing where he says that there’s no point playing with an injury because “if you hurt it again you could be out for four or five weeks and you could miss most of the championship.” A bright spark on gaaboard.com was onto that one like a shot, wondering why Mort would be thinking that the campaign might only last as long as this.
Mind games, that’s what it is. And if you think that’s good, wait’ll next week when Johnno starts doing his Fergie impersonations.
