  1. Cup Final Date

    Having looked it up that is indeed the case. Maybe they cracked-down on it after that: aside from the following season (using the Sunday) it's always been the week before since CL went onto Saturday final in 2010.
  2. Kelty Hearts 17/18 thread

    Sure it's been discussed before... perhaps even in this thread... but IMO the highest-placed eligible club should participate in the playoffs, perhaps on the proviso they'd finished in the top 4 or similar. Needn't even affect the "mandatory" principle. It's clearly impractical to require the level below to apply the standard of the level above: everyone would end-up applying Premiership standard!

    Going by the footage it looks like her index finger contacts the lip of the stone after its underway. Whether that's a foul, or whether it set the detector off but should have stood, I've no idea.
  4. FA Cup 2017/18

    VAR contrast... Italy: used on average twice per 10-game league weekend. England: used multiple times every game it appears in. Something doesn't add-up. Today it was used unnecessarily and a decision taken inconclusively.
  5. TNS v Dumbarton

    First major final since 1951. Dumbarton reached the finals of equivalent tournaments - the B Division Supplementary Cup and St Mungo's Quaich - in April 1946 and August 1951.
  6. TNS v Dumbarton

    Congratulations. Saves referee having to play "rock/paper/scissors" to decide 4th sub + penalty shoot-out rules, tbf.

    Reportedly the 'other 3' will get their CEO pick: http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/43098581 Former Hearts and Hibernian player Stewart told BBC Radio Scotland's Sportsound: "For the president to come out and introduce the new manager as a mate for years, and having been the chairman of his testimonial committee, is just staggering. "The lack of awareness in that organisation is beyond belief and I've never been so angry, and it's not Alex McLeish because I hope that he goes on and does a good job. Where is the strategic planning? "They've now effectively said that the chief executive role is almost immaterial because they've made the big call without them. "Let's be honest, we all hear the chat, we're all in the industry. And the talk is that we know there's a split board at the SFA. The chat is that Rod Petrie and Alan McRae have got their man, and in return the other faction are going to be allowed to get the chief executive. That's not for the betterment of Scottish football. That is politicking. And it is unacceptable as far as I'm concerned."

    It gets better. She used "second-hand" skis (actually skis meant for someone who withdrew). She wore her goggles through the press conference as she hadn't packed make-up - "unlike the girls who expected to podium" - and felt embarrassed. She said it was all too much and she'd rather go as she was supposed to have 3 snowboard practice runs bagged. Immense.

    Sounds serious...
  11. 2018 Winter Olympics

    Remarkable story in the Women Super G skiing where Ester Ledecka of Poland - who has been world champion in parallel snowboarding the previous 2yrs - put down a 'harem & scarem' run to win by just 1/100th of a second ahead of the defending champion. Almost lost it on a few occasions but held on for a totally unexpected victory... the footage of her at the bottom is amazing as she can't comprehend that she's won, thinks some kind of mistake must have been made, and needs the cameraman to tell her its true so she's Olympic champion . According to the BBC coverage the defending champion was already giving victory interviews to the press - the best skiers going at the top of the roster to get 'clean snow' then those further down not expected to challenge - unless I've misunderstood them and they were just being metaphorical. Have not seen much of the mens curling but as noted the women have sadly been posting a lot of bad shots.

    Ominous clouds continue to gather for Cowdenbeath who now have 1pt from their last 5 league games and are now almost at a stage of having to claw back 1pt every remaining set of games. Cove are looking ever-stronger in HL but, at least in theory, with over 1/3 of the program to be crammed into the last 7 weeks any collapse in form could still open the door for Fraserburgh or more tenuously Inverurie or Formartine. It's interesting how the challenge of Buckie and Brora has evaporated this season. It remains impossible to call LL: if you corrected for games-in-hand but had 'Shire win their home game against Spartans you'd have EK on 59pts, Spartans on 59pts, BSCG on 58pts and 'Shire on 55pts: this looks like being a cracker right down to the last days. 7 Clyde P23 W7 D8 L8 29pts 8 Berwick P24 W7 D4 L13 25pts 9 Edin City P24 W5 D4 L15 19pts ---------------------------------------- 10 Cowdenb’h P24 W1 D7 L16 10pts 1 Cove P22 W20 D2 L0 62pts --------------------------------------- 2 Fraserb'h P24 W17 D4 L3 55pts 3 Inverurie P24 W16 D3 L5 51pts 4 Formart'e P24 W16 D1 L7 49pts 1 East Kilb P25 W18 D5 L2 59pts --------------------------------------- 2 BSC Glasg.

  13. TNS v Dumbarton

    Tbf, they play in a league otherwise comprised entirely of part-timers and amateurs, and posting average attendances of around 300.
  14. Cup Final Date

    They scheduled it for a Sunday in 2013, to use be the same weekend as the Champions League Final (there are restrictions on televising games on the same day even though it's in the evening - plus the SFA hierarchy couldn't go to both if they were the same day). Other than that, it's always been a Saturday - and the Saturday before the CL final since it was moved to a weekend. It'll be Sat 19th May this season, almost certainly Sat 25th May next season etc. Incidentally a single final in Victorian times was on a Friday: it might have been a Glasgow local holiday or fast day.
  15. University Football 2017-18

    Strathclyde won at Manchester - if they beat Loughborough it'll be an all-Scottish SF. Great stuff.
