      Poor sods can be idiots and idiots can be poor sods. The quality of poor soddiness is not strained, it droppeth as a gentle rain upon the place beneath…

    Are we supposed to empathise with the deeply, deeply foolish now?

    There’s far greater ninety-minute pleasures to be had for that kind of cash. Idiot.

    After applying for the “Follow your team” tickets I got allocated Conditional Tickets for Round of 16, Quarter Finals and Semi Final. So I can’t go to the first 3 matches and have to wait to see how Ireland progress (hopefully they will) AND have given UEFA an interest free loan of €350. Suspiciously like a numbers game so they can say they’ve allocated tickets to fans.

      how do you feel about the stock market where you buy shares to resell at a higher price. in Ireland the people who are good at that are seen as heroes making millions .why so down on the little man doing the same

        I don’t see them as heroes. The person buying the ticket is also “the little man”, who is also being screwed by ticketmaster or whoever in the first place. I would rather have actual fans of the team/band/whatever paying the original price than some scrounger buying up a load of tickets and flogging them at 3 or 4 times the price. On the rare occasion that I have a spare ticket to gigs I have always sold them on at face value.

          No, the person buying the ticket is the one creating the market and thereby pushing up the price for everyone. Supply and Demand.
