    Looks like it will be a clear day too, albeit quite nippy. If the freakish mild weather was still here it would probably help the crowd more, but at least it's not raining. I've been at most of the finals over the past 4/5 years and some of them were absolutely baltic!

    Not sure you could really add much more to 40k. That's a serious crowd; credit to both clubs

    It would be lovely to break the record. Thatís just getting greedy though , amazing number of tickets sold.

    Let it be a cracking game with plenty of drama, not a 0-0 scrappy affair for the crowd which is bound to make the curios tune in on TV too.

    And there not an issue with Dundalk fans camped there when Rovers passed on the way to the stadium couple of years ago.

    Absorbing game, as far as 0-0 goes it has been entertaining. Pats looking generally the better side but Bohs look to be set up more defensively and allow Pats to have a go and then hit on the break. Chances at a premium but Benson or Forrester look like they can pull the strings for an opening. Kelly the battering ram method for Bohs.

    Official attendance given as 37,176 - not quiet the 40k predicted - wonder did the concern re covid numbers in last few days effect it- still great to see a new Aviva record

    Incredible atmosphere coming across from TV coverage. I think we can always knock a few thousand off our predictions of cup final attendances as we all tend average up, and covid worries too - DCIL and myself stuck when planning to take a trip to Dublin for the game. I think if this goes to ET that things sway toward a Bohs win. No reason in particular why I feel that, maybe that Pats have been carrying longterm injuries and also Bohs have the European experience in the Aviva getting over the line.

    Strange to be almost disappointed with that after talk of 40k a couple of days ago.

    But it's what - ten times what the equivalent league game would get? It's great to see.

    Shame the game is the dreaded damp squib

    Pretty poor game tbh. Loads of terrible first touches and needlessly lost possession.

    I've long been a believer that one of the reasons non-LOI fans think the LOI is such crap is that (apart from it being a bit crap, to be fair) when they see it on TV it's played in fairly grim surroundings for the most part, with ramshackle stands and terraces and poor quality floodlights, and that if the exact same game had played out in front of 10,000 people in a modern well-lit stadium, the football itself would be considered better.

    This match isn't helping my argument.

    Would be the 2nd highest ever attendance I think? I dont think its a damp squib game (pity the fireworks werent damp squibs!). Enjoying the game and glad there's an extra half hour. Whats that 8 from 12 Aviva finals that have gone beyond the 90mins. Great for the neutral, a total stress for fans involved. Of course Id want Dundalk to be involved today but its nice to actually be able to just enjoy the game and atmosphere without risking a stroke in the process.

    Cup finals anywhere can be poor in quality but still enjoyable as occasions, there have been some awful FA Cup finals (a few world cup one also) as its more frenetic than quality. Its all relative and the Irish sorting public dont see LoI. FAI Cup finals on a level playing field.

    Yeah, it's like both sides are a bit stage-struck, but Bohs in particular shouldn't have an excuse for that having played so well in three trips to Lansdowne this season.

    I'm not seeing much to say we'll lose all eight games against these two next season anyway

    A moment of real quality from Forrester for the goal.

    Lovely goal, but a bit of a shame there were so many errors in the game, on such a big stage. I know Tierney's had a v good season but I thought he was quite loose today.

    Thought the keeper could have done a lot better for it, but maybe it didn't help that Forrester was central and with a clear view of goal. Great run though.

    And an immediate equaliser to liven things up

    Ronan Coughlan is a disgrace and an embarrassment of a footballer.
