A very good performance on Sunday. We did well to contain their key forwards at times as it looked in first half as if they may run riot.

A lot of concerns on injuries but in fairness we have avoided injuries all year so we're only experiencing now what most teams have all year. Sunday proved that our squad is good and we can perform well without key men.

Looking ahead to Mayo.. based on their performance against Meath (I thought they were poor) so whilst it'll be a battle in their home patch, we should be beating them with a bit to spare. They haven't a good record there and they are a team not firing on all cylinders. We will need vocal support but how many tickets will we get? I seem to remember Tyrone moaning last August at their low allocation for Ballybofey. Does home team control the allocation??

Would it not be first come first served, got mine yesterday and general admission so not sure if the Mayo CC could curtail who gets what tickets.....now am totally open to correction but if 25k Donegal supporters logged on and got tickets could it be a home away from home tie?!

I'd assume there's only a certain amount allocated for general sale but I got mine no bother yesterday as well.

Not a hope will 25 thousand travel.

Be lucky to have 10 thousand.

We would probably have 20 to 30 thousand go to a semi final.

But you are right.. we should bring good numbers

donegal could bring anything from 10 to 15 thousand for this one. i see it has a capacity for 38.000 which will be cut due to health and safety. i think this could sell out. i dont know the in and outs of how the tickets are distributed. but i see the clubs in donegal must have there orders in by friday. so i presume once these are allocated that the remaining tickets will go on sale online and in super valu. mayo as we all know have a huge fan base but we would also be well supported.

I agree with most Rorysboys but you would not agree support for us has dropped a bit ?

Still the same die hards that go to most away league games and champo

Agree but think entry team is the safe. I thought there was more Kerry people in Croke Park than us the last day.

Yeah.

We didn't bring big numbers to Tyrone or Cavan match.

We had a massive crowd for meath match but attendance was very low up to that
