League team takes precedent or cup runners-up, it's a UEFA directive and the national associations don't have any discretion. It's been that way for a few years now- edit, make that the 2015-16 season. Hull sneaked into EL in 2014 but Villa didn't in 2015.

what world are you living in ,what has the foul cleary made on fri night got do do with that balls of a decision to give a penalty to cork . what cleary did was a clear foul and was punished


Relax son. We got the benefit of a terrible decision on Friday night, Cleary deserved a straight red and probably a two/three game ban. Cork benefited from debatable decision two days later. Thats the link, pretty simple. I live in the real world, what world do you live in?

It's worth remembering that a red card of any sort (straight or two yellows) would result in a player missing the cup final. I would imagine referees are concious of this.

That should never enter a good referees mind when making a decision.

We don't have good referees. We have easily influenced referees.

I wonder will the club try to minimise the usual nonsense that comes with FAI Cup Final ticket distribution system courtesy of Tickermaster?

It would be great if the club has learned the lessons of the previous TM disasters where blocks in the corners were released at first to the early buyers. Maybe if the club took blocks of tickets for sale to fans the usual ticket trauma could be reduced?

Isn’t some of that due to the women’s final?

I think the FAI dictate policy here. Visually they won't want pockets of Dundalk fans with gaps. In addition, each block opened up means hiring more stewards. I'm also assuming that - irrespective of whether it's Cork or Bohs - we will the same end as usual.

What way do the allocate the end each team gets? Is there a reason we always get the small end?

I presume it's logistics. We're coming from the north so we get the north end of the stadium, Cork get the south end.

That’s an obvious point that I never thought off!! What if it’s Bohs though, won’t we all be coming from a northerly direction?

I think there was also a (stupid) assumption the first year that Cork would substantially outnumber us. I think if Bohs make the final you could see a large number of Dubs come out, even though they might not be from Phibsboro.

Of course it's an FAI gig and they make policy decisions. That does not mean that the club have no influence in any aspect of ticket distribution.

You only have to look back over each of the previous cup final ticket threads to see how much of a fiasco the Ticketmaster distribution (overseen by the FAI) can be, and how it impacts on fans.

The club can and should be proactive in trying to ensure that buying a ticket for a match that will not sell out will not turn into the now normal ordeal for supporters.
