    The seats in Oriel are horrible... They look great yeah but they're far too low... The underside of the seat actually caught the back of my leg first time I sat down... Would be pretty uncomfortable if it was packed there... Anyone with long legs will be chewing on their knees...

    Away section packed? Based on the Pats turnout last night, you will not get to test your hypothesis anytime soon.

    Bohs and Rovers are the only ones to take a resonable travelling support (and they just don't do knee chewing)

    By using the word IF there, he implied it wasn't tested last night. Still, take the easy jab way to avoid his criticism

    I think it says about people who get excited about molded plastics.

    Point taken, but hard to resist seeing how the numbers from St Pats were so disappointing.

    The new seats fitted are full spec and are a significant improvement on spectator comfort right around the ground. The point that Doomofman makes is actually more related to the tiered terracing that they are set on. It would be ideal if this terrace was re-developed and this bigger job may be undertaken in the future.

    Only 200 away fans attending the tie-of-round 80km from home explains why this may be down the list of priorities

    Carlow 1-1 Monaghan; Carlow led for a good while before Karl Bermingham equalised late ish.

    Glenville 1-7 Bohs. Glenville had pulled back to 2-1 just before the break.

    Does there be an occasional Gardá on a white horse?

    246 apparently. Still brutal though obviously (and a marked improvement on the amount that went last season too...)

    Isn't the plan for home fans to sit there during the Euro games or will that be the away end too?

    Depends on who we get, if its a Welsh or NI team, (assuming these will take the biggest away support) it will be retained as an away section. If anyone else/small uptake of away support demand, I think it will be used for home fans.

    Seating going into the shed side from tomorrow.

    It's a strange criticism to make of a stadium, but there you go.
    It's funny how you can't spread carcinogens in an office by smoking, but you can cough and cough and cough.

    Interesting forum about football stadium developments in the north. Looks like there seems to be more activity going on there. Donegal Celtics ground looks tidy as does Portadowns. Any chance clubs here could get the finger out and start funding new developments.
