    Is there any workable solution to reduce the midweek madness? The Premier Division possibly has 4 rounds of games too many and the First Division has probably around 4 rounds too few!

    Are two divisions of 8 too far fetched? 28 games. Premier Division 7th v First Division 2nd in a straight forward playoff.

    The League Cup could be exclusively for these 16 teams in a suitable and agreeable format that guarantees enough games in the early stages.

    Schedule the final in the Aviva in May around the old FAI Cup final date. Offer the incentive of a European spot be it direct or an end of season playoff against the 3rd or 4th placed team.

    (An intermediary type league would have to be below the First Division for the two divisions of 8 outlined. There was some talk of some form of third tier.)
    A Championship: 4 years - 8 first teams - 0 financially ruined. First Division '14: 7 first teams.
    Opportunity seems lost somewhere in between for new clubs/regions to become part of LoI family.

    I'd guess this would be classified as a promotion, Ryanair now have a facility for you to add Rovers tickets to your booking after booking flights to Dublin, plus a classic Ryanair fee of course. It'll be interesting to see the stats on it at the end of the season

    The Sean O’Rourke show had a segment about the Pats V Derry match on Tuesday, interviews with fans from both clubs etc.

    I'm surprised that UCD agreed to that - assuming that they have a veto with it being a shared gate?

    While a €5 admission price acknowledges the financial stress for committed supporters of four consecutive home games in 12 days (this EA Sports Cup match and 3 league matches), in my opinion there would be far higher gate receipts with €10 admission.

    I've just seen a thing of the Longford social media guy sharing a Rovers highlights package saying that having the team lineup and formation helps opposition teams? I hope he's being sarcastic in reference to something I've missed? If not it's not a great attitude to have for one of the people meant to be promoting the league when by all accounts he does a good job on Longfords social media

    Well spotted Mr A.

    Of course, if the away club has no veto in the matter, seeking approval would be utterly pointless.

    AFAIK normal admission charges must apply for shared gate cup matches unless both clubs agree to different arrangements

    As far as I am aware FHFC was not consulted ahead of the FAI Cup game last year. Whether we could have vetoed the price changes is another question.

    it seems as though you may be unaware of the answers to either question.


    If it was a requirement (I believe it is), I would expect that non-compliance would be an issue that the FAI would pick up on. Their match assessors are routinely involved in overseeing agreement on matchday revenue sharing for cup matches.

    Yeah, woudlnt agree myself as clubs do their scouting and knkw exactly what way teams line out but you'd be surprised at the amount of managers who won't allow their clubs media teams do things like that. Sure Tony cousins wouldn't let the club do match previews if there was team news in them, even if a fella was out for weeks he didn't want it public knowledge. Dinosaur.

    Don't all clubs have to upload full match videos to a shared portal between clubs for scouting/analysis anyway?

    Well I spoke to the FHFC treasurer who confirmed she hadn't been asked.

    Did she clarify if it was a requirement?

    If it is, have FHFC raised it with the FAI?

    What was the outcome?

    I'm suspecting she decided she did'nt have enough of an issue with it to bother making it into an issue.
    I know we had a LC match a couple of years ago where we wanted to do free in for kids (warning ..second hand info) and were refused by the visiting club because they took the view it woudl hurt the gate.
