    Bohemians v Waterford confirmed as the live game on RTE2 with St Pats v Dundalk on Watchloi. Waterford getting a good allocation of 900 tickets which are going on sale now. I presume they will be for the Des Kelly Stand so hope it's a nice evening now that the roof is gone.

    Pats have confirmed that Dundalk will be getting the Shed End and a section in the main stand for their supporters however with doubt of covid restrictions being lifted I wonder if this will change if capacity is still only 50%.
    Here on a technicality.

    I’m biased obviously, and I’ll be at the game, so it’s no skin off my nose, but I would have thought that the Pats/Dundalk game would have been the better choice for TV. Having said that, it’s probably marginal.

    Apparently Pats have given Dundalk 500 tickets which will be upped to 1000 if restrictions lifted. I hope they are, this is the first season I didn't renew my season ticket as I gave up trying to contact the club during lockdown. Means I'll miss out on a ticket if there is only 500

    The noises are looking positive in that matches haven't been linked to any big outbreaks so far apparently. A couple of hours outdoors is fairly low risk so I'd say they'll see sporting events as one thing they can lift the restrictions on.

    I'm in the same boat for the Bohs v Waterford tickets. Won't know till next week if further tickets will be for sale to Waterford fans after the initial 450 or so were sold to season ticket holders and supporters club members last week.
    Hopefully will get one but will depend on government decision next week.

    Its most likely that the October 22nd date will be moved back by govt with the way trends are going, the shift in language the last couple of days sounds like its prepping for such news. 75% capacity could well be seen to seasons end now, annoying but could be worse as we've seen with BCD games.

    Dundalk released an update yesterday, tickets on sale to ST holders, one per person from tomorrow and that further allocation will be pending govt restrictions being lifted, but as mentioned on here, hopefully sporting and outdoor ones will be exemptions, as I can see us fully taking up the 1k allocation.

    If 100% capacity is allowed itís expected to be a sell out. Would be great to have the place packed again.

    This is the 3rd season in a row we have been drawn away in the cup semi-final, Sligo (19) Athlone (20), even if the 2020 one was a cakewalk, luck of the draw and all that, but I wonder would there be any interest in a return to the 1980's H+A legs format? This was similar to the English LC set up for their semi finals, with away goals not counting.

    Some cracking ties in the past, I remember we played Bohs in 87, lost 2-1 at home, won 1-0 away, then won 3-0 in the replay at home (I assume that was a draw to see who hosted it), great game. Joey Malone with 2 pens, not sure who got the other goal.

    I have a memory of Pats playing Dundalk in a cup semi at Richmond in the 80’s, think it may have been a two legged affair. We lost. One striking memory is that there were daisies growing on the pitch at Richmond !!

    Home and away semi-finals reduce the knock-out aspect of the cup IMO. It makes it much less likely that there will be a shock result - which is surely part of the whole proverbial 'magic of the cup'. It's much harder for a team that is weaker on paper to pull off 2 big performances than just one. Given how boring and repetitive the Cup final fixtures have been over the last five or 6 years (only 3 teams have competed in the last 6 finals - out of a maximum possible 12 teams), I wouldn't want anything which increased the predictability of the semi-final winners.

    That was 1988, when both clubs going for the double, Dundalk 1-0 up from first leg, expecting a cagey affair away, we won 3-0, including a brilliant early goal from the late / great Barry Kehoe, gone just shy of his 40th birthday 19 years ago today I hear. What a player he was.

    Yeah I looked it up after I’d posted it. Don’t really recall the game at all. It was before I was a regular at Pats games. I always remember the daisies on the pitch though. Those were the days !!

    Replays on Monday if itís level after 90 minutes. The league games due on Monday will then have to be squeezed in somewhere.
