Cork City Confirm Rangers Game Will Not Be Moved

Greg Marshall told a mate of mine in Gibraltar we probably won’t be taking an allocation.

We fecking better!
No I didn’t. All day when asked I said I didn’t know anything about the fixture apart from that Cork were keen for it not to be moved so we’d get a small allocation. A few boys asked if we’d take an allocation and I said I didn’t know as I don’t yet due to having not discussed the next round with the club.

There’s lots of things the club could do with this but let’s wait and see what the situation is before we get ahead of ourselves.

Have to agree with those who want Progres.
There's a score to settle there, and nothing other than an absolute hammering will do it.

I think progres will beat them so fingers crossed. Can't be fucked with the negative media drawing an Irish team

Absolutely no problem with local cork fans
While they may not support us they also have no.love in for septic many of them second team is Liverpool which brings a dynamic due to Stevie G..

However there will be some looking to cause trouble from outside the area I fear .
On holiday last year I got speaking to a Cork fan, nice guy, who basically said that whenever he saw anyone in a Celtic top he just stayed away from them as he knew they would just be an extremist idiot.

They’ll no doubt be at least one weapon who’ll want to cause trouble and tarnish our full support. Many Irish people don’t give a shite about the IRA and want to live their normal lives.

It would seem easier all round if we got Progress but I think we should ensure we have a support in Cork if it comes to that. This can be managed to mitigate potential damaging media interference that will surely ensue.
I hate the idea of restricting travel and giving in to the anti Rangers hordes that would be salivating over the opportunity to further besmirch our name. But needs must, and putting Cork to the sword should be sufficient, as our European progress far outweighs any need for revenge over Progress or having one over the Taigs.

Don't confuse Cork with Dublin. Different city different people. Still in ROI but very much preferable to Dublin.
They like their football there. Loyal following, No love lost between Cork and Dublin. Cork regard themselves are the real capital . Drives Dublin people nuts.
It would be a juicy tie IMO.

Heard off a few folk when I was in Gibraltar that’ll be official travel only, with police giving an escort fron the airport 1 hour before kick off

I’d much prefer luxembourg

Personally,
Rangers should let independent travellers do their own thing for this one as per every other European tie since our return to Europe

To force us onto official travel would be unfair .

What Gardy Loyal said was what I got told in Malaga airport yesterday on the way home. Obviously a case of chinese whispers and people taking your word and twisting it.

Really would love to get to this but don’t think I have enough points on my travel club to get a ticket.

With the location of the game do u think many fans will still travel to cork without tickets?
I think thousands will travel mate. Just with that alone the police will class it as high risk.

I am all for this as can get a direct flight to Dublin from my home town here. Then a wee trip to Cork. Dont want to fly to Glasgow via somewhere else in UK or Europe to then fly on to Ireland and back when a direct option is available.

But prefer to go to Luxembourg myself.

Of course the game should stay were it is.

Southern Irish RCs have proved in the last few decades that they can overcome their inherent bigotry.

If you can't laugh at Father Ted, where is your sense of humour?

If we take up the allocation of 400 tickets, what would you reckon the points cut off will be?

I am on 6 points so would be hopeful of making the cut.

I would like to think we have all moved on enough for the tie in Cork not to be an issue for anyone. But there will always be a niggling worry that idiots on both side would see it as a chance to refight ancient battles or prejudices.
So I’m torn, if it is Cork I would obviously want the game to pass off without issue and with Rangers fans in the ground, just to get it out the way. But would actually prefer progres so we could really go to town and run up a cricket score.

Depends how’s many the club are going to siphon off that.
I reckon TC members would only see half of that.
That would restrict it to maybe 7 - 10 points.
I’m on 5 so not very hopeful but will apply anyway in the hope of getting one.

Would like to think that if we played Cork away in the second leg, then it would be a dead rubber due to us smashing them at home.Would surely take away most of the tension??

I had the same thought then realised the nutters who would be looking to cause bother don't really care all that much about football.
