This is like a Greek Tragedy. I expect we will go out on penalties.

No sign of ticket sales either.

Given our current form, a replay was probably the best we could have hoped for, so I would have expected some contingency planning.

Harps will take a shed load (no pun intended) of fans down for this. Their numbers will be limited so there's a possibility our tickets will NOT be available on-line (in order to prevent strays). Either way, giving preference to season ticket holders means tickets have to go on sale in two tranches, with a substantial window for both. They should - realistically - go on sale in the morning. Supporters need some kind of heads up today, not at 9.30 tonight - or 9.30 in the morning. Unless of course they assume we will not sell out the ground, and it's every man/woman/child for themselves.

An announcement which says nothing, and could just as easily have been made yesterday. Still, this is in line with the Chairman's view that the fans are the root cause of the club's problems, and deserve the same kind of disrespect shown to the travelling support by the majority of the squad on Friday night.

Season tickets don't count for Tuesday. I know in a normal season this is the case, but it is a bit harsh on season ticket holders this season, considering they supported the club when they needed it.

The gate money has to be split 50:50 with Harps. That’s why ST is never used.

In my day it was 7.5% off the top (subject to minimum gate receipts) with the balance shared 65% Home / 35% Away.

Used to be the rule that if you're the away side, always take it in cash.

Thinking of one 'advantage' of the 3-3 game on Friday. If this had gone to ET, I think we would have gone out, the momentum and adrenalin would have taken FH over the line even with 10 men.

We will still be favs to win on Tuesday, so lets just hope we can get the job done, and move on.

According to James Rogers on twitter Dundalk's preparations for tomorrow night's FAI Cup quarter-final replay with Finn Harps have been dealt a huge blow by a number of Covid-19 cases in the camp. At least 4 players have been ruled out with the rest of the squad awaiting test results to determine their eligibility

Sonni Nattestad wasn't in the Squad on Friday, must have been Covid related?

Five players potentially out including Nattestad. We really will be down to bare bones tomorrow.
