  1. £400k must be baseline full-time / top-end part-time budget up here? Berwick's wages 2013-14 - 2014-15 - 2015-16 were £186k - £208k - £191k. Sutton were averaging 1,518 at New Year. Remember their league play 46 games and there'll be better money in FA Cup and Conference naming rights/TV deals compared to Scottish Championship equivalents - e.g. BTSport show 30 live games (25 league/5 play-offs) + weekly highlights.
  2. With the advent of floodlight, it seems to have become very much the done thing to undertake a brief tour of England if you were eliminated from the cup (both cups generally stuck to the same weekends), playing Friday-Monday or similar. We'll see more of it in the weeks and months to come. Almost invariably that way around though. Presumably coming up to Scotland in February, and the likely gates to be shared, were less appealing than doing it the other way about.
  3. Queen’s Park edge it at Broomfield Amateur hour was a badge of honour in Lanarkshire tonight as Queen’s Park made it through to the Scottish Cup Quarter-Finals in their centenary year. Both clubs had wasted no time in arranging their replay after a draw at Hampden on Saturday. Hay gave the Spiders an early lead on a mud-bath surface. Ferguson missed a penalty for Airdrieonians before Hopper scored one for the Glaswegians. McPheat’s goal shortly after half-time proved only a consolation. Here is the Quarter-Final draw, due March 11th: Hibernian v Aberdeen Dundee United v Dunfermline Athletic/Partick Thistle Celtic v Queen’s Park Clyde v Hamilton Academical Scottish clubs ended their visits to England. Motherwell were thrashed in Hull and Dundee’s appearance at Millwall was waterlogged. On the domestic side Morton reiterated their promotion credentials, beating Hearts 3-2. In the National Youth Competition Semi-Finals the Scottish Welfare FA drew 4-4 with holders the Association of Boys Clubs. Scottish Cup - Second Round, replay Airdrieonians 1-2 Queen’s Park (4,444) Friendlies Hull City 4-0 Motherwell Millwall P-P Dundee Morton 3-2 Heart of Midlothian SFA National Youth Competition Scottish Welfare FA 4-4 Scottish Association of Boys Clubs
  4. To answer earlier query: between 1920 and 1971 (when the Scottish Cup Final moved to May on its own dedicated Saturday), there were 24 occasions when there was also a league game on in Glasgow and 20 when there wasn't. On 2 of those 20 occasions were there 2 league games clashing. Totals: Clyde - 7 Partick - 7 Celtic - 5 Rangers - 4 Queen's Park - 2 Third Lanark - 1 Most notable examples: 1921 Partick v Rangers ... Scottish Cup Final ... 28,294 Queen's Park v Kilmarnock ... League game ... 12,000 1968 Dunfermline v Hearts ... Scottish Cup Final ... 56,366 Rangers v Aberdeen ... League game ... 35,814
  5. If it's such a great idea - why are the Premier Division teams not included? If the future is playing groups of 4 in August, then slicing into divisions according to where you finish, then it should surely embrace all 48 clubs - 12 groups of four slicing into 4 leagues of 11. Obvious issue is that from September there is nothing to play for except the titles and next season's 'seedings'.
  6. According to the newspaper Toronto would use a new retractable roof/indoor stadium that's just being finished. If any 'third franchise' here was based in Aberdeen... where would they play (and who would watch them)? In the Borders... who would watch them (and where would they play)? Perennial issues. Not to mention those ideas of putting it in Stirling or Perth.
  7. Surprised by this talk of Friday. Has a major final ever been played on a Friday night? Clearly hampers fans ability to make it, pre-final build-up etc. and could finish late into the night.
  8. I may have lost your train of logic here: but you would scrap replays because UEFA rules mean TV can't show some replays? They couldn't be showing any if they were scrapped?!?!
  9. I think point 3 is certainly correct... Family members in the generations above me would go through to the Scottish Cup Final each season - or if it wasn't annually at least quite often - as neutrals, from the other side of Scotland. Seem to have treated it like going to the internationals. I'm not so sure of point 1... I've read of other games the same day - including Third Lanark games or youth internationals at the other end of the street from Hampden intended to attract anyone locked-out if or when the Ground Full signs went up. Have to look into it.
  10. Celtic: Scottish Cup Finals (20) - 1928, 1931, 1933, 1937, 1951, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1961, 1963 + replay, 1965, 1966, 1967, 1969, 1970, 1971 + replay, 1972, 1973 Scottish Cup SFs (3) - 1925, 1954, 1957 League Cup Finals (2) - 1965, 1970 League Cup section decider (1) - 1948 (at Ibrox) Coronation Cup Final (1) - 1953 League, New Year Derby (1) - 1939 (at Ibrox) European Cup SF (1) - 1970 (at Hampden)
  11. Goals and drama in the Scottish Cup Second Round day in the Scottish Cup brought scores and scenes aplenty yesterday as teams staked their claims to a place in the Quarter-Finals. Goals rained in at Pittodrie, Shawfield and Parkhead where the last non-leaguers standing, Elgin, were thrashed. Crowds flocked to Easter Road and saw giant-killers Berwick unlucky in losing 1-0 to Hibs. Dunfermline-Partick and Airdrieonians-Queen’s Park both finished 1-1 and require replays. There was almost a full card in the Second Division containing matches put off by the weather on December 17th and January 7th and by the League Cup Quarter-Finals on September 14th. Result of the day came at Stark’s Park where a rampant Raith closed to within 10pts of Morton with a game in hand. Travelling supporters’ hooliganism and bottle-throwing marred Rangers visit to Leicester. There was also a Fairs Cup tie played in Romania today where Yugoslav visitors Dynamo Zagreb beat counterparts Pitesti 0-1. In news, the DA of New Orleans, Jim Garrison, has caused a sensation by announcing his department is investigating the assassination of President Kennedy over 3 years ago as "conspiracy". Scottish Cup - Second Round Aberdeen 5-0 St Johnstone (22,800) Celtic 7-0 Elgin City (34,000) Clyde 4-1 East Fife (4,151) Dundee United 1-0 Falkirk (11,000) Hibernian 1-0 Berwick Rangers (29,911) Partick Thistle 1-1 Dunfermline Athletic (19,114) Queen’s Park 1-1 Airdrieonians (5,963) St Mirren 0-1 Hamilton Academical (7,623) Second Division Albion Rovers 0-4 Arbroath (607) Alloa Athletic 0-1 Stranraer (618) Clydebank 0-2 Third Lanark (1,452) Cowdenbeath 4-2 Montrose (392) Dumbarton 0-2 Brechin City (397) Queen of the South 2-2 Stenhousemuir (1,146) Raith Rovers 6-1 East Stirlingshire (2,038) Inter-Cities Fairs Cup - Third Round, First Leg Dynamo Pitesti 0-1 Dynamo Zagreb (18,000) Friendlies Leicester City 1-0 Rangers Stirling Albion 0-5 Morton
  12. 13,700 apparently. Maybe she meant there's similar works planned around away/blank weekends - March 4th and/or period March 11th-April 2nd? If that's incorrect then clearly Tynecastle's an option.
  13. I may have misinterpreted it, but I thought the pay-off of speeding-up and delaying some works to have it open for the derby was it'd be shut again in March like it was last month? You've no home Premiership games March 11th-April 2nd. Challenge Cup Final (March 25th/26th) falls in the middle of that. I thought Budge even said it mightn't be open for Scottish Cup QF (March 4th). EDIT:
  14. Rangers - 39 Celtic - 29 Aberdeen - 9 Hibs - 6 Kilmarnock, Motherwell - 5 Hearts, Morton, St Mirren - 3 Clyde, Dundee, Dunfermline, East Fife, Eintracht Frankfurt, Partick - 2 Leeds, Real Madrid - 1
  15. Outrageous.
