    Of course all this would be resolved if the club just released attendance figures.

    I'm pretty sure you can't stand behind the goals at the Brandywell Road end unless you're a ball boy btw.
    Yes you can stand behind both goals now.

    Derry do allow for people standing as their are railings on each side of the Mark Farren stand specifically for that.

    I know Derry allow people to stand, but they don't sell tickets for standing. So those standing have left a seat empty to do so.

    Where and when was it announced that people can stand behind the nets at the Brandywell Road end ? I'd be surprised if the council deemed it safe to even do so, given that there's a steep slope there. Plus it would make a bit of a mockery of the segregation.

    I wonder if that was tickets sold or tickets scanned, think they were having issues scanning tickets that were bought online.

    I could see no attempt at segregation in the Brandywell last. There was plenty of mixing of fans - and it makes the occasion all the better to be able to have craic without any hint of hassle

    Segregation at the Brandywell just means put in a corner out of the way. There's no hard and fast segregation in my experience.

    If you put home fans either side of the 'segregated' away fans in that end block, then the loose segregation wouldn't really be segregation any more - as they'd be in the middle of home fans.

    It crossed my mind too Scrufil. While detail are scant on what happened in Cookstown, crowds in any sort of confined space or where there are solid barriers, be it turnstiles, walls, seating et al, should be a headache for all concerned with safety. I know I have rattled on plenty about this in this thread. Its off topic but an interesting study done on evacuating people was hard to test as of course when people knew there was no real risk they did everything as they were supposed to and everything went perfectly. The people doing the study (evacuating an airplane) offered a cash prize to the people who got out first and then the mayhem, lack of concern of others, panic and so on became apparent and the test had to be stopped at one point. My concern is more that this sshould never be taken lightly, there is no room for 'snowflake' jibes. Even if observations on specific incidents can be invalidated somehow (and imo no personal sense of feeling at risk should be dismissed) there is the risk of people nt speaking up in case they are seen as being supersensitive - saying nothing is worse than shouting too loudly!!

    Dundalkfc10, so a couple of stewards wanted to stand among a section of support? I dont see issue with that unless they are deliberately standing in the way as in obstructing view. If they werent stopping people from chanting singing then what was the issue? Was it that people couldnt drink, smoke, pull out flares and the like in the presence of stewards. It would be pretty commong for stweards to stand/sit among the crowd in leagues all over the continent so I dont see reason for your fairly harsh criticism of what many would feel was the stewards dowing their job, of seeing something that made them think it was necessary to be among fans. In Inchicore the stewards are very close to the fans in the away section of the stand on that landing at the rear. Ive heard criticism of them also when all they were doin was spotting people smoking in the tsand for example and telling them they needed to leave the stand to smoke. When there is no stewarding people complain, when stewards are proactive people complain....

    Seems a bit low, can;t see how everyone would have been able to be put in the main stand and still have a few hundred seats free , Extratime estimated 3800 as well. Although thats probably a bit high.

    Thatís interesting Asterix (and Kingswood), I see that estimate now on the match report. I took the 2,812 number from their text updates during the match where it gave that number as the attendance (on 87í mins). Itís still there.
