    I think it is Morro,the red arches are too like the Luz in Lisbon. And its just that design,its really similar.German/Dutch stadiums have a good bit of a difference in them.

    Its all cyclical. One huge company does a great job and gets the contract for others. Remeber all the new English stdiums being the same (Middlesboro, Sunderland, Cventry etc)

    I think it's silly theatrics from the club. It's a game of football, let the fans do the intimidating and leave the stuff like that in the teathre.

    Pic is a fake. The original is from the Stadium of Light (which to be fair, was half spotted here)

    "Attendances at last season’s Premier Division games, he added, were up from an average of 1,461 to 1,621 with Shamrock Rovers, Sligo Rovers and Cork City – in that order – the three best supported clubs."

    Is 'the better the ground, the more supporters' oversimplifying it???

    without a doubt IMO.
    it is one of the main factors, but sure look at Flancare, its always empty and thats a nice ground (i realise only one stand has a roof but still)

    In bits these days apparently but also need moderate success with good facilities to help with crowds. Good stadium a massive help tho

    Loads of factors. Flancare is out in the middle of nowhere (relatively). People can't just decide to pop into it watch a game. All LOI grounds really need to be near people (and specifically pubs) to have any chance IMO. Particularly true for country clubs

    Cork's Bishopstown project is the best example of that. As big as Cork's fan base is they were getting crowds in the low hundreds for games there as it was awkward to get to.

    Makes sense tbh, anytime I'm on holiday somewhere I try and say things in their accent so its easier to understand. I thought everyone did it.
    McClarens one was well worse, and hilarious.
