    There was a league cup or setanta cup final in tallaght not too many years ago between rovers and dundalk. Just 2 stands back then, but dundalk couldn't sell their allocation for the main stand and rovers ended up with tickets for the 2 sections nearest the car park

    An FAI Cup final at Tallaght is bad for the league and, should Rovers reach it, an unfair advantage for us. I'd oppose it at all levels.

    I wouldnt want the Cup Final in Tallaght simply as the game should be in the National Stadium. But if it were Dundalk in the final again v Rovers, I dont think it is a major advantage especially if the dressing rooms get changed up. Some of our best performances against Rovers and in Europe were in Tallaght so it has become a bit of home away from home. Its kinda hard not to consider Dundalk not being in the final. If both teams avoid eachother and reach the final we ccan have the Presidents Trophy awarded also. By then maybe things will be in a better position to be able to stick with the AVIVA.

    Has there been anything official about it being in Tallaght ? It really would seem silly.

    For me personally I wouldnt oppose having the FAI cup final in Tallaght only if the two teams were country sides and werent well supported and then move it to the Aviva ie like with Sligo Rovers -Shamrock Rovers if it sells out well! I

    Another shambles of a draw from the FAI. Just when you think they're starting to turn a corner and do some good, they come up with nonsense like that.

    Waiting 4 months for football to restart in the LOI, and we get a 5 minute conversation with Jim Crawford about the under-21 international team, beginning with "I never really liked the FAI Cup".

    Barely audible, filmed on a phone, and a totally amateur production.

    Not to mention drawing 13 byes instead of just doing a second round draw.

    No non-league sides in this year's competition, and Rovers B are ineligible.

    So first round is to reduce 19 teams down to 16.

    The only thing I'd say about doing the next round draw is if you had drawn say Dundalk away 2nd round you might be more inclined to rest your team in Rnd 1 as there would be little chance of progression past rnd 2

    Only way to have an even number and from last 16 stage, also with one round less this year for most clubs, it was the only way it could be done. This way the winners of the 3 games will join the 13 sides who got byes.

    We will have Waterford at home twice within 4 days.

    Reminded me of a question that came up in one of our zoom quizes during lockdown. Dundalk's last defeat in 90 mins in the FAI Cup, who was it against?

    QF replay v Rovers in 2014.

    Thank God Dundalk got that extra game. One game closer to the amount of games their squad is designed for

    At this point its game time that is needed so an additional one and maybe 2 more competative games before playing SRFC in a potential crunch tie in Oriel not including Europe. In regards to Europe it could be a useful game to have under the belt also.

    What a relief to get through tonight. We do love a last minute goal in the cup. We were abysmal as per usual and was dreading penalties. Dinanga pops up with a brilliant goal to win it.
