We’re heading west, all five of us together, later on and there’s a whole load of stuff to sort out before then (including my final week’s mini-league predictions: don’t forget the midnight deadline) so this has to be very quick. The nationals are still in bed once again where it comes to previews so all I can find is RTE (who go for them) and Hogan Stand (us). Paddy Power have the odds at even but the draw is available at a tasty 15/2. Punters on the site here are fairly emphatic (82% emphatic) that we can do it but, to be fair, this vote was started just after the high of the Tuam result and I didn’t put down the draw as an option.
I think we could win, I think we could lose but I also think we might draw. I don’t know what to think, in other words. But I think we will avoid relegation whatever the result is and I think I’ll be taking all my little people to McHale Park to see tomorrow’s action. The fan in my laptop is now making the most alarming whirring noise (despite the fact that it was only switched on fifteen minutes or so ago) and, if I don’t should it down pretty quickly, I think there’s a good chance it’ll blow up. That’s as good a reason as any to wrap this up – I’ll be back again at some stage after the match tomorrow night.
