Episode 1479: Pochettino and Conor McGregor’s Mystical Connection, To Kane Or Not To Kane, Mayo’s Long Road Back, Donegal and Tyrone March On
It’s Champions League final week, and Mauricio Pochettino has got his lemons at the ready – Ken reveals (5.55 mins) the deep psychic ties between Spurs’ Argentinian coach and our very own Conor McGregor.
Where exactly do Mayo go from here? The answer in real terms is simple – they go into round 2 of the qualifiers. But in philosophical terms, their loss at home to Roscommon in the Connacht championship on Saturday night leaves them again questioning their suitability for a deep run in this summer’s GAA football championship.
Oisin McConville and former Mayo legend John Casey (22.10 mins) run the rule over their shambolic last 5 minutes in Castlebar, and we also discuss Donegal and Tyrone’s progression to an Ulster semi-final that has every chance of being a classic.
Plus there’s Ehonda, Tony Robbins, Harry Kane’s miracle return (00.20 secs), more Tom Hanks, and Jack Grealish’s royal treatment.
Harry Kane missed the end of the Premier League season through injury, but he says he’s ready for the Champions League final.
