I have to say when it comes to getting a ticket for any game right now I dont think I am as bothered as most supporters.

The idea of sitting in a virtually empty Oriel , without any of the regulars I'd go to games with, socially distanced from the few fans there, wearing a mask, with no atmosphere, watching an overpaid team under-perform doesn't really appeal.

Have to agree on the ticket thing, home or away I'm not interested in sitting in grounds until the buzz is back, with no restrictions and full crowds.

Probably be next season for all of that, and god knows what sort of team we will have then, seems to be any that ask to leave. yes no problems, we can sort that for you.

Just seen online that Dundalk are dealing with a number of covid cases in camp. Exact number hasn't been specified or who is missing. Wishing those affected a speedy recovery.

Never a dull moment lately.

I agree Mike. As I said in another post, seems the players ( or more probably his agent) can give Bill a sob story and he’ll let you go

And Gavin just tweeted he is out of action for 2 weeks - looked like a hospital bed. I wonder if there is a connection or is it just a coincidence?

Up to 10 players were asked to stay at home this morning and training was cancelled.

How many have we in the squad?

Could we potentially have to give a walk over

Wasnt aware it was Gerry that posted this as I just seen a screenshot of it. If I had of known it was him I wouldnt of wasted my time posting here.

I wonder how many are affected and will it affect our starting XI. Not as confident now but surely a full time outfit with the depth of squad we have we should have enough to get the job done.

3 positive cases with zero close contacts. Not sure how you’d manage that but ok. Could have been worse.

Good God, the day of a european match and its so quiet on here. Covid restrictions and Peak6 management have succeeded in doing what even Trever Anderson couldnt, totally dilute excitement in our club.

With the club charging €10 a pop for coverage tonight, the quality better be a lot much superior to the recent streams.

Any team news re omissions due to covid? Or is that all bulls**t?

Could have been a whole lot worse indeed. You would still be hopeful that we would be fine with three players missing unless it's the two goalkeepers and U19 keeper
