    Hopefully that gets the people of Cobh to come out. Think I'll go over for it myself.

    Cobh would be seen as a 'second' team to many City fans, and when they're doing well or have games they'll always have a chunk of city fans pop down. They have a lot of our former youth players and it's a lovely spot to watch a game. I'd pop down myself for a semi final if I was around.

    Obviously dundalk are a bigger draw than most first division teams would be. And god knows they need the money.

    Over the years met 2 Cobh fans, one a butcher on the front between monument square and heritage centre, the other a taxi driver in Dublin.

    The club will need to push this one and convince the Cobh public that it really is a Semi-Final of a National Cup and a one off that could entice the casual interest!
    Anywhere around 1,500 would be a figure to aim for in realistic terms.

    Whaaat? Not even to see the mighty Lilywhites in the flesh?? Seriously though if a club that has had little silverware, has been on the edge of going out of business and now has a chance at getting to a final doesnt lift even a once off attendance it is depressing for anyone involved at Ramblers. A good few Cork City fans are bound to go to the game and there could be a reasonable crowd that will travel from Dundalk though might struggle to get near 100 depending on what day the game is played and what league/EL(?) fixtures are before and after. Even if local interest is poor curiosity might get people out unless there is a serious detatchment between the club and community ala Athlone currently. If there is why is that? as while the club has had its financial troubles of recent it survived, has a decent history, and will be representing the town of Cobh on a national level. If this semi final doesnt generate any additional local interest maybe its time to look at some sort of merger with Wanderers if they have the better goodwill locally and see if a new LoI entity is better supported while keeping a MSL possibly also as a developmental team. Ok it didnt work out so well in Galway when there was a new 'United' club in the city but maybe it would be less fractious in Cobh, less egoes.....is that possible in Irish football anywhere!?

    From speaking to people down there thereís a total distain from the town towards the club due to stuff that went on in the past. Youíd be surprised how damaging that kind of thing can be and how hard it is for a club to shake it. For a long time Longford had a very bad reputation in town due to busineess being burned in the bad old days and it has taken years to heal those wounds. Even when we won the FD in 14 youíd be shocked by the amount of begrudgers out there. Thankfully with Fenn (a Dundalk legend of course) actually getting out into the community and the club making huge strides with social media etc we seem to finally be turning a corner and crowds are slowly improving. Cobh have a long way to go before they can say the same and Iím not sure even a cup semi final is enough to get the locals out.

    Outspoken, at a guess were you in a certain establishment in the town before the game a couple of weeks ago? If so, some of the patrons there seem to have a major grudge against the club, you're right in that quite a number of people were turned against the club due to the antics of a few who now have nothing to do with the club and all that hassle was 10 years ago.
    I was involved in helping the club a few years ago and some of the stuff I encountered from people within the town was shocking; for example I used to put up match posters around the town in pubs and shops only for them to be torn down shortly after. Rumours used to be spread discouraging people from taking out season tickets saying that they'd be liable for the debts of the club, that type of thing. Some of the stuff spread was appalling.
    As I've said before I suspect the people behind it had their own agenda, what that is I don't know but it must gall them to see that the club is still there.
    I know that if the club were to have a few successful season's on the pitch then the support would come back, after all 90% of the "sporting public" are unbelievably fickle.
    I know quite a number of football people have thrown their support behind Cobh wanderers but that team like all others will go through a barren spell given the cyclical nature of football. The irony being that Ramblers developed nearly all those players.
    That all said I'd expect a big crowd in for the EA sports Cup semi final.

    Nope I wasnít in JDís and I must stress I really would love to see Cobh turn a corner as the club were so welcoming to us a few weeks back. Pizza and chips put on for the fans and drink deals in the bar. Absolutely touch of class.
