    Neutral ground for a one-off play-off between UCD and Bray next weekend, winner plays 9th in Premier the following weekend also at a neutral ground, which is the Cup final weekend so most likely Friday night

    That makes no sense at all, so I guess it's possible

    Could be Tallaght ? There is a game in Dalymount & Richmond next week. It would make no sense having the game outside the Dublin area , on that basis it could be in Turners X.

    Given the crowds the playoffs are pulling in (3k Treaty, 4k Galway, 600/700 UCD and not sure on Bray), why have a neutral venue at all?

    We finished higher than Bray; if it's a one-legged game, we host it.

    I wouldn't object to the final being in Lansdowne before then Cup final, mind. I fear another 90 minutes of being rooted up the hole by the tactical genius that is Ollie though.

    I'm told UCD v Bray is in Dalyer next Friday.

    That's stupid. But better than the other option, which was Galway v UCD in Longford

    That would have been a great idea for a double header. Itís a bit forward thinking for the lot in abbotstown lot Iím afraid. Iíd say it wouldnít fly with the cops either.

    Whatever first division team reach the final will have a slight advantage because the Final ,Final will be in Dublin,Tallaght or Richmond would be the venues for it…

    Is WFAI Cup not on before the mens final as it has previously? The furore there would be if the Promotion/Relegation Playoff was given higher billing than the womans cup final even if it was a bigger draw for crowd espcially if Galway had managed it.

    Has to go down as a poor season now for the coaching dream team of Caulfield and Fallon, a big full time squad and an almost as big backroom team.

    UCD v Bray confirmed for Friday 19 in Dalymount. I realise my son and I are a very small constituency but we would have gone to this if it didn't clash with a certain trophy lift in Tallaght. Would have been nice to show the young lad Dalymount in all its 'glory' as even with away fans allowed I'd never bring him to the derby to stand in the death trap that is the Des Kelly Stand.

    Is there any reason why FD play-off final is being played over one game at a neutral venue rather than over two legs?

    Just bizarre both Bray & UCD have to wait it out almost two weeks with players being paid when you could have had a 1st leg on Friday and 2nd leg on 19th and both teams get more revenue from their home legs
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    It was the same last year - Longford v Galway was in UCD.

    It makes no sense though - and agree on your other point too

    I would have been confident a month ago that we'd win the play off if we ended up in it. I'm not so sure now. 3 points from last 5 games and no regular centre forward makes me a bit nervous. Colm Whelan is banging in the goals for UCD and of course used to play for Waterford underage so he could come back to haunt us.
    We were lucky enough to beat UCD in the Cup game so will be a 50/50 game.

    If you do happen to lose the play-off there is always the trawling over UCD player registrations for Plan B....

    A shot so good it knocks the camera into focus.
    Just accept it: 2022 is going to suck.
