    I always love a bit of player engagement with opposition fans, even laughed at HOOOOOban rubbing his belly in Tallaght when he scored last year as the fans had been slagging him about his "physique"
    Foley seemed to only rile them up further, as the bottles, lighters, cans and flares ended up thrown at players and Harps officials after the game.

    Such whataboutery justifies nothing Nigel! Across the board condemnation of any fans the flout lockdown restrictions is the only response, not pointing the finger. The irony if such reckless behaviour causes an extension to BCD games would undoubtedly be lost on such morons be they from Donegal, Derry, Dundalk or that pathetic anti-lockdown bunch protesting in Cork and their ilk (Who'd have ever thought the not wearing masks would become a bedrock of civil disobedience for the usual loudmouths that protest on everything...)

    I'm merely pointing out the irony of repeated posts by same Derry fans who have pointed the finger at Harps since behind closed doors games started.

    There were a ridiculous amount of Derry fans crowded into a very tight space last night, some of which cause bother after the game, yet it's tumbleweed. Handful of Harps fans gather behind the fence at Finn Park, either rightly or wrongly, and it's mentioned on social media, brought up by Gardai, and mentioned time and time again on sites like this one by some people.

    Covid-negative, maybe; I haven't checked.

    Wrongly! At Finn Park and the Brandywell.

    From chatting to one of our stewards the other nite in Bishopsgate we reckon it will be max 200 like last season. Wouldnt trust a word out of MMs mouth tbh. It will be probably next season before fans will be allowed in according to wot I was told.

    I could regret being optimistic on this again as of course all of this is in flux. We are moving quite well now with vaccinations, by the end of this month we hope to be moving well in to the 40's age cohort. By the end of June, especially if the J&J vaccine lands, we could be good to go with reduced crowds initially. FAI plans submitted are doable, if a decision hadnt been demanded on the EURO20 games we probably could have had a restricted attendance in June/July (no loss anyway!!). There are a couple of angles in the mix - blotting copybooks with groups gathering outside grounds during BCD games, or looking to control things by allowing some attend games. It will mean a change in old habits eg people crowding in on top of each other in The Shed in Oriel or Turners Cross. If distancing doesnt happen in these areas they will be closed as a first resort and then back to BCD if there is ongoing non compliance. It will be up to individual clubs how they allocate tickets but there wont be ticket sales on the day and people will have to permit screening (temps taken, signing in with contact details etc). Different levels will happen for different regions/clubs so if clubs can agree to that its progress - currently Donegal/Derry would be BCD but not Longford for example. There is an argument for treating games like cup fixtures where gate receipts get split. Different grounds will have different plans obviously, its also in the pipes that 2 or 3 games could be held at the one spot. Monitoring trends from other sports and countries will drive the nitty gritty of things so its a wait and see. The big thing is that there is no p1ssing match between clubs and especially different sports as there are a few noses out of joint currently and want to assert themselves. Crowds gathering unofficially is being measured as a guide to the likelihood of compliance going forward!!!!

    I can't see how we wouldn't have partial attendences by end of the summer to be honest. Full attendence should be on the cards from September onwards. Worth noting that vaccine supply has doubled the last few weeks and will only increase further with J&J as Nesta points out. Vaccinations for 25-35 are due to start in July and finish in September.

    In Rovers case splitting receipts wouldn’t work as we have approx 1500 paid for season ticket holders - Tallaght will initially have a max of 500 spectators with places allocated by lottery so don’t think we’ll want to share any of receipts already collected
