    Default Fai cup final on sunday

    hi all just wondering if many members on here heading to Aviva on sunday
    I think its great value at only£10 per ticket and il be hoping for a cork city win
    even though I have great admiration for this Dundalk side who seem to be
    a little bit ahead of the rest of the league but I also think if there is a team
    to beat them it is city, so looking forward to a trip to the big smoke on sunday

    Heading up myself. City had a great deal on a train, € 35 return dropping at Landsdowne Road and returning from Connolly Station. Needless to say it sold out fast.

    I'm quitely confident of a City win. As someone said on the radio during the week, City are the one team that Dundalk wouldn't want to be meeting in the Final.

    If the game is half as good as the last league game between them in Turners Cross it will be a cracker although Cup Finals tend not to be great games with so much at stake.

    The € 10 admission is indeed great value, something the F.A.I. managed to get right. Should be a handy crowd at it.

    just back after a long day, drive to the big smoke and we can,t have
    any complaints as Dundalk proved why they are league champions and
    are that bit better than the rest of us. It was a great atmosphere and even
    though the game was not the best at least it dried up just before k.o so well
    done Dundalk and well deserved.

    It is becoming an annual event now as we head to the big smoke again on sunday
    to take on what must be one of the best LOI teams ever Dundalk in a repeat of last
    years final. I have a feeling this is going to be our year. City till I die

    Should be a good game, will the fact that dundalk have to travel back from russia just a few days before have any impact on the outcome?

    Well it wont help them anyway, but they are defying the odds all year, I would love
    to see them get out of their group as it would be great for Irish football and also give
    them a few million euro.

    Extra time in the cup final, both sides had a chance to win it in the last few mins. Will anyone win it in extra time or will it go to peno's.

    Dundalk had the better chances in extra time but cork win it at the death. I think it took a deflection. What a time to score. Joy for cork city and heartbreak for dundalk. Blue rebel will be happy. Well done cork.

    I think it did have a huge impact on the outcome. As I previously stated in another thread, the League of Ireland and the FAI did Dundalk no favours with their fixtures scheduling. Still it looked like the final was going to penalties until City scored the injury time winner. Congrats to Cork for winning their first silverware under John Caulfield.
