Off The Ball 5 hint at imminent comeback
But where will Ken Early, Simon Hick, Mark Horgan, Eoin McDevitt and Ciaran Murphy turn up next?

IT’S A CRUMB of information, but Off The Ball fans hungry for the departed team’s return, will take it.

Having suddenly parted ways with Newstalk almost two months ago, Ken Early, Simon Hick, Mark Horgan, Eoin McDevitt and Ciaran Murphy look set to make a return to the airwaves in the coming days.

The so-called OTB5 have been on gardening leave since their shock exit from Digges Lane. But an update from their @TheSecondCaptains Twitter account today reads:

“Hey everyone, its been a while but it looks like we’re close to quittin’ time #gardenleave #SecondCaptainsComingSoon

They didn’t immediately comment when contacted this afternoon.

The five left Newstalk after a long, ongoing negotiation about the future of the show ultimately came to a head. Ger Gilroy and Joe Molloy have presented the popular nightly show since.

Where do you think they’ll end up?
