    Because we'll not always be up against such weak opposition?

    I was tempted to start up a "sh*t Craggy Island, you're just a sh*t Craggy Island" song last night, until I realised it would be a bit stupid singing at a TV screen. In a pub. In England. Maybe I'll save it for next time.

    Surely he'll just come in for Corry Evans from last night's line-up?

    I've been a CC holder through the WWNISC for a number of campaigns, attend most aways and went to France etc and the IFA's "system" still doesn't recognise that. But I'm on a circulation list where they send me some, but not all, general emails, inc eg asking me whether I want to buy a hospitality ticket for Austria at £95. Presumably this is in addition to my seat in the North Stand for that game. Quite honestly, the IFA Ticketing Department couldn't sell fivers for four quid from a stall on Royal Avenue.

    Sell Out v Austria?

    I didn't even get that far - I just saw the "gourmet burger" and that was me sold! (My burger better have Hellmans on it, none of that cheap rubbish mayo from Iceland)

    Sell Out v Austria?

    I've just received an email from the IFA, offering Hospitality Tickets in the Billy Bingham Lounge at £97. Yet when I "Click Here to Book", rather than a regular booking page on a website, it just gives the email address 'hospitality@irishfa.com' - no details, format, further info or anything, very unprofessional. I then took a separate look for tickets on the ticketmaster.ie site, where those hospitality tickets still appear. Thing is, there are also maybe 250(?) £50 tickets available dotted around the North Stand (plus 7 x £40 tickets in the South Stand). I assume that the reason they are using an email application for the hospitality tickets is because if they direct people to ticketmaster, they'll also see the £40 or £50 tickets and book those instead. But committed fans will already have secured their tickets at their preferred price, so what less committed/last minute booker is going to pay £97? It will be hard enough to sell cheaper tickets at this late stage, without "hiding" them while trying to sell dearer tickets. If* they really were down to 500 tickets by the end of September, they've barely sold half of those in the 6 or 7 weeks since, why haven't they been bombarding people on their email list before now? They surely must have a better chance of selling any remaining hospitality places once all the cheaper tickets have already been sold - this way they'll do neither. Bonkers! * - I know, I know...

    Mayor "Diamond" Joe Quimby - "Oh no, without the booze, these guys all remember how much they hate each other!" (Note which side started it, and with a sneaky rabbit punch to the back of the head at that. Typical. )

    Tbf, Michael is very good at bringing young prospects, inc even occasional IL players, into the set-up when practical. Assuming Sykes is good enough, his time will come.

    Michael's picked 28 players, which he doesn't usually do. My guess is that he wants to take a closer look at one or two of the newbies and assess the fitness of some of the others, then he'll send 4 or 5 back to their clubs after the friendly. One other possible factor. He commented the other day that for the ECQ's (proper) next year, we'll have a succession of back-to-back games. Perhaps he's testing out the players now to see how they'll cope with it when the time comes?
