Got to agree with this know a few personally who have got tickets through clubs who attend the odd game. I've no bother SC's getting tickets etc my problem is when said club ticket X amount of tickets for away times then get say 3/4/5 times that amount for Scotland. Members of SC's (that I know personally) have been very pro FAI on this subject and can't understand why we so annoyed. I've even had members of 2 newly formed SC's offer to get me tickets in the future (even though I would have as good if not better history with fai)

JD is not my dear leader. I think he is a buffoon.

You are reading what you want to read in to my posts and in fact I think you are wide of the mark in what the opening poster was trying to get at also - i.e. this 'list' was nothing to do with ticket distribution.

The only point I was trying to make (and I've been very unsuccessful I'll admit) is that just because you are a fan within a supporters club (of which I am not) does not mean you should be tarred with some kind of underhand, 'they are all in cahoots with JD/FAI' umbrella'

Some of our most loyal and longest serving regular home and away supporters are members of supporters clubs - to dismiss them, as I sensed the opening post was doing and also as I've read in many posts elsewhere on this forum over the last couple of weeks, is a joke.

By all means pull JD and the FAI up on their many many inadequacies but supporters clubs? guys giving up their free time to organise travel and tickets and the likes - some are new yes but many have been around long before the Scotland ticket fiasco and I didnt hear a peep out of anyone complaining about them then. If they are getting unfair allocation then first stop is FAI process.

Thumbs Up A lot more clarity in your post there, would not be having a go at the long term clubs and members with history either they deserve a ticket as much as anyone, but the way some newer SC's have been sorted is quiet bemusing when very few members travel anywhere and make no mistake Delaney is behind it and up to no good

Where did i insinuate in the opening post that people in supporters clubs shouldnt get tickets? Please tell me. I in no way are blaming supporters clubs. I am bitterly disappointed that those i charge of them won't talk and are redirecting queries to an FAI employee - as said...

And he has just signed a new salary at €360,000 per year.
 
The FAI are haven't a fuking clue what they are at. LOI fans have seen past Delaney's bullsh1t years ago. National team fans seem to be doing the same lately.
 
 Its disgusting and has put me off going to matches a long time ago.

I agree with Kerrzy, for perhaps the first time? Anyway, you are on the money here sir.

Supporter clubs are not the answer to the problems that arose last week. Delaney tried to say this was the way Premier Clubs distributed their Tickets which again was a total lie.

Personally speaking I don't think supporters clubs are the way forward either. Will always be fans who go their own way and why should they be left out in the cold because sone lad decided to pay his €20 at start of the year to be a member of a club. No other football club run things that way no matter how many times delaney says they do.

We need to push on to get a fair system implemented, Christ the SFA has made a balks of almost everything in relation to Scottish fans but even they can implement a loyalty system

I have been going to Ireland home games since jack Charlton.
Block booker waiting list until the famous letter came!
Season ticket holder since it was launched.

I have been going to away games regularly since Portugal in 2000.

If I join a supporters club now will this service be taken into account?

I suppose it can't be worse than the FAI have treated me!!

Remember that block booker letter , how did that work out for Delaney?

What about the vantage seats?

We were sold the ST on the condition you would get preference for away games, that's surely a lie now ?

Junior,
 
Your points are all very valid and correct. Unfortunately, there is an Anti SC Agenda being driven by some posters on here. They have no idea what the History, Membership, Block Bookers, Season Tickets and Away Games attended by these members are. Many of the clubs are older than the posters.
 
They may say that there is NO Agenda, but we can all read into their posts. The SC's did not create the current ticket situation, but some narrow minded people are determined to blame the SC's.

Yeah I think the focus needs to be the lack of system of the fai not having an issue with supporters clubs in themselves.

If the london SC got = 250 tickets

Edinburgh = 50

Belfast = 75

And Galway got 11 then the whole place would go up in flames  as questions would be why Boat club got 11  tickets when there was only two of them in Georgia etc etc etc .


Did you accept 2 tickets from the Boat Club?
My point as word for word what would be said .
You really wonder why anyone from a SC would come on here do you ?

Yes bye the way we took two tickets as two people dropped out as we were top of the list as we had been to more aways over the last few years than anyone else in the club .

Can you show evidence of this?

Alternatively your completely missing the point in this whole saga.
