    Wondering why the FAI or ticketmaster went for unallocated seats. With the numbers that we are looking at on Sunday surely this will lead to issues. It’s always best to have a seat number.

    It's an old bugbear of mine!! Watch for the empty sections while another section is dangerously packed. Bohs singing section will probably all pile in to one block. If the crowd is over 40k it should at minimum be allocated blocks.

    It is allocated blocks but unreserved seating within those blocks. I can’t see stewards strongly policing people moving between blocks however so yeah there'll probably be some very overcrowded areas, particularly in the singing sections of both clubs as you mentioned

    I hope they do, at previous finals it was basically go where ye like (bar premium entry). By the 3rd year of being in the final nobody fussed too much about how ticket master released tickets as once in the ground people just picked their spot - far too many behind the North goal and we saw that the overpacked area a crowd surge resulted in the collapsible seating getting a test. It was bad at half capacity crowd, but heading for 40k it will just be downright dangerous unless properly stewarded. Tbh allocated seating can cause rows in itself lol.

    I looked it up as I’m due in the uk in a few days . They require you to pre book a flow test and not a pcr as reported by the independent and few other papers. Afaik the flow test gives a quicker result to the pcr.

    and yet someone could fly in to Belfast, take a 90-120minue drive and mingle with 40k people no problem and be carrying covid-19 Om. Its early for it likely to be an issue but one UK case is in Brentwood, Essex and where I lived and flew home to a couple of FAI Cup finals from. It does show how daft 'restrictions' can be between the UK and ROI/EU.

    Ive been gtting myself in to trouble today I think without intending to for a change. Of course it would be easier to fly to Dublin, its just in general going to be a waste of time requiring flow or PCR tests to fly in to Dublin when there are bound to be people that will get around the process by flying in to Belfast instead and could then potentially attend an event in Dublin where there will be a lot of people. Good luck with tracing everyone and containing any contacts. Between this new new variant, that it is that different it is almost a new flipping virus, that it has already appeared in Europe and the UK, moving in to the Christmas season - well it could be an extra fun spring on top of a post christmas and new year Delta peak!

    Not particularly a good thing, less inconvenient sure, but an even more porous infection control border. Though cant have it every way, in the CTA but restrict travel in a CTA? Stopping red zone flights in to the UK will help protect us with not having direct flights to southern africa, hope other hubs do the same - the speed at with the brits have acted, rolled Boris out in front of the cameras and are rolling back lifted restrictions is nearly as big a red flag as any as its not like them, indicates serious concern and/or genie out of the bottle. We can be glad tomorrow closes our season as more cases in the UK and they're looking at stadia having restricted capacities again.

    In the interests of public safety today's final should be abandoned , no winner this year.
    Better safe than sorry.

    If Bohs are fearful of the omicron I’ll take a default. A win is a a win.

    I agree. And just to be fair, the current holders should keep the trophy for another year and also take the associated European spot. I’m sure everyone will agree that that is the best option for public health.
