Ive met seans family members a few times and from hearing about the kind of man sean is
Hed be supporting one of us if the shoe was on the other foot

Liverpool FC and Republic of Ireland legends were at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin today to officially launch the charity game in aid of the Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust.
The match, which will take place on Friday April 12, will see the two sets of greats go head to head in a bid to raise money to fund vital rehabilitation care for Seán Cox, who suffered life-changing injuries when he was the victim of an unprovoked attack outside Anfield ahead of the Reds’ Champions League semi-final against AS Roma last April.
LFC ambassador Ian Rush and Jason McAteer were joined by Seán’s wife, Martina Cox, and trustee of the Seán Cox Rehabilitation Trust, Stephen Felle, to announce some of the former players taking part, as well as the importance of the funds that will be raised at the game.
Sander Westerveld, Jerzy Dudek, Patrik Berger, Vladimir Smicer, Salif Diao, Robbie Fowler, Rush and Djibril Cisse are all confirmed to play for the Reds.
Glen Johnson also joins the LFC Legends team, as well as Robbie Keane, who, along with McAteer, John Aldridge and Phil Babb, will play for both Liverpool and their opponents.
For the Republic of Ireland XI, manager Mick McCarthy will be able to call on the likes of Kevin Kilbane, Ian Harte, Lee Carsley and Liam Lawrence, with more players to be announced soon.
“This game is so important to everyone playing in it, we want the best for Seán and his family and that means raising money playing this game to support his ongoing rehabilitation,” said Rush.
“Dublin is a special place to play when you’re a Red but playing in honour of Seán will make this a very special night and I hope our supporters will continue the incredible support they’ve already shown and turn up for Seán on April 12.”
The game at the Aviva Stadium will kick off at 7.45pm and ticket prices will start at €20 for adults, €10 for under 16s, and a family ticket (two adults and two children) will be priced at €70.
Tickets for the game go on general sale via Ticketmaster on Thursday February 14 at 10am, with pre-sales for LFC Members, season ticket holders and official LFC Supporters’ Clubs taking place beforehand.

Anyone got a link for the presale tickets for this in the Aviva?
Just bought one. Not even sure I can go but its for a great cause €31-75. That lark with the lanyards in the normal sale that have to be bought is a joke.
Your code for ROI XI v Liverpool Legends is ADB1KH8P9LT. Got this with 3
Got 2 tickets myself.
As you say it is for a cause.
Thanks for the link
Got sorted thanks though
A big pity that Ticketmaster get a chunk of this money, when all of it should be going directly to the Sean Cox fund. Based on €30 tickets, it seems they're taking €3.75 from the LFC pre sale at €28, and €6.20 from the general €30 sale. I doubt the Collector Ticket of €5.95 is going to the fund either. Very poor from Ticketmaster, considering the reason of the match.
But it's important we ignore them and still buy a ticket and contribute our money to the fund.
This is going to sound like I'm being narky but it's just an observation. If Ticketmaster are getting the collectors ticket price people would be better off not getting it and instead throwing the €5.95 in the Go Fund Me.
Got sorted with one adult and one child .
