Sligo Rovers V Dundalk | Sun 29 Sept | 5pm | Showgrounds | FAI Cup Semi-final

Post by Ezeikial » Tue Sep 24, 2019 9:46 am

With a 6 day turnaround time to Sunday's semi-final, there should be no issues with recovery as long as there are no injury concerns arising from the Rovers match

Presumably the team will be similar with Andy Boyle and Dean Jarvis possibly pressing claims for inclusion. Sean Murray and Daniel Kelly might also feature, but it is hard to see either replacing Robbie Benson or Jamie McGrath unless through a forced change.

The only minor concern is the potential for complacency, with some players mentioning a treble and/or cup final in the Aviva in interviews last night.

Season Ticket priority ticket sales Tuesday & Wednesday, followed by general sales on Thursday at 10am

Adult tickets only - apparently the club didn’t get any kids or concession tickets.

On the face of it that's bizarre - there is established precedent on the ratio of concession tickets that must be provided. Calling oldfogey for clarification / confirmation.....

This is not correct. I got 2 tickets for the match including a concession ticket for my daughter who is a student.

Hi Niall.
I got them yesterday. The concession tickets is simply marked concession ticket and was priced at €10. I assume all concession tickets are this price. Still good value IMO

Home tickets are expected to be sold out today. Do we think we will fill our allocation of 800+?

Anyway here's Buckley: https://www.rte.ie/sport/soccer/2019/09 ... -to-sligo/
I am only repeating what Brian Gartland had said this week but we have definitely left a couple of trebles behind, especially last season. No disrespect to Cobh but we should've beat them easy last year and had a good crack at the final.
I'm the same as you though, I've a bad feeling about the cup this year.

The two league cups we left behind in 2015 and 2018 happened when we were focused elsewhere. This season we had enough in hand to focus for the semis and the final, and this season we won't be playing the cup final 3 days after narrowly losing away to the 12th ranked team in Europe with a 5000km round trip. If we play somewhere near our best we'll be ok, but need to be on our game.... Sligo beat us well in Sligo and drew in Oriel already this season. Rovers at their best could push us and Bohs caused us a lot of trouble
