The knockout format has made it more interesting, I think if they reduced it to one leg, and have a toss for home venue would be best.

Story in today's Mail that Setanta are to focus on increasing their GAA following and they wont be showing any of the 2012 setanta cup games live.
Surely if this is the case it will be the last year of Setanta cup.
They didn't show that many games live last year, if my memory serves me right. Seems odd the wouldn't show at least the final.
Bray v Glentoran
Bohs v Portadown
Lisburn v Derry
Cliftonville v Pats
The battle of the dogtracks. Tasty.
Life without Finn Harps makes no sense.
Although in fairness life with Finn Harps rarely makes any either.
Glentoran's first round, first leg Setanta Sports Cup tie away to Bray Wanderers has now been brought forward to Saturday 11th February with a 3pm kick off.
The home leg on 20th February will kick off at 7.45pm subject to TV coverage
It'll be great to see a few more of these games shown live. After a bit of trial and error they seem to have come up with a structure that suits the competition. Good luck to all LoI clubs involved.
The dream and hope all winter was League of Ireland football coming to the Kingdom.
Unfortunately and very disappointingly it has not come to be on this occasion LoI 2012.
bit of a debate over on the Bohs board about whether there is TV money for the games Setanta shows live. I thought that every team got appearance money and that TV appearnaces were factored into these funds but another poster is pretty adamant that there is 2k for the home team and 500 for the away. Can anyone verify either side of this one? cheers,,,
If you're paranoid, let me reassure you: everybody is not out to get you. It's only one guy and its not who you think.
Boh's game on the 13th will be televised.
Manager: Fergal, have you your boots with ya?
Fergal: Ya, I have them here.
Manager: Ah good stuff, well give them to this man so, he forgot his!
The IFA president claimed a feew months ago that their teams didnt get their money on time. He claimed that the money is given to the FAI(for some reason) and that thye must distribute it. I cant find the piece, cant remember if it was in a paper or whether it was on the net. If any knows the piece Im referring to can you also have a look for it.
Two ties in this on Sat??
Bray 7/5 D 9/4 Glens 13/8
Lis.d 11/4 D 12/5 Derry 5/6
3pm kick/o as far as i can see?
Yep, 3pm KO's
Derry City Setanta game brought forward
The Round One, First leg, tie has now been brought forward from Monday 13th February 2012 to Saturday 11th February 2012 with a 3.00pm kick-off.
Strange one to move unless they planned on opening up a TV slot. There's Top 14 on both Setanta channels at that time.
