Paddy Power have us priced at a nice, generous 1/500 to do the business against New York over in Gaelic Park this coming Sunday (throw-in 2.30pm local time, 7.30pm here) in our opening match of this year’s Championship campaign. In this week’s Mayo News (digital edition), James Horan has told Mike Finnerty that they intend to hit the Yanks with everything they have on Sunday and will be taking every fit member of the panel over for the match. By the sounds of that, James has no intention of seeing his side skirt with disaster in the way they did in his first championship match in charge, against London over in Ruislip in 2011.
By the way, this week’s Mayo News is well worth getting either in digital or paper form as it contains a special supplement on the New York game, the cover of which is quite an artistic delight.
Right, then, how do you think the match will go – easy win, not-so-easy win or – Heaven forbid – a mortifying, never-to-be-lived-down defeat? Time to vote, y’all.
