  1. Who was it talking about scraping the barrel earlier? That's what visiting the Falkirk thread is.
  2. We're still 13 weeks until October. What a sobering thought. It is definitely too early for knicker wetting.
  3. Was this the good news you alluded to last week or is there more to look forward to?
  4. Yeah, makes perfect sense. The group stage of the Betfred have effectively become friendlies. ETA - Slight draw back is that usually the teams outwith the Premier have a bit of a headstart for the Betfred with the Prem teams not returning as early as us. It'll be the inverse of that this time.
  5. Its only Monday and we haven't even had the ironic imminent tweet yet from the club. I'll go for Thursday.
  6. I dunno, I think it has some rustic charm. 🤷‍♂️
  7. As a further aside, look at this makeshift stand. How awesome does that look? Future of the North Terrace imo.
  8. You know until you posted that hat I had no idea who St Pauli were. Then I'm browsing the BBC sport website and this article catches my eye. An interesting read. St Pauli: The cult German football club that wants to change the game forever http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/53078948
  9. I'd pay £300 if they chucked in the Away top. 😎 You can keep your scarf though, I'm having none of that.
  10. I get what you are saying, I probably would as well tbh. I'm not sure how palatable that is though given season ticket holders gave up a £55 refund last season and you'd be asking them to swallow the same again this season. I don't envy the decision makers at the club. There are no easy choices with this pandemic.
  11. Either that or he has an electronic tag. 🤣 Other than a forray down south he's either been in Edinburgh, Perth or Dundee.
  12. I know France was being cited as an example that Hearts and Partick will be successful as the Courts intervened. Appreciate its different circumstances as their league format was expiring for season end. However, the relegations have now been confirmed. https://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.com/sport/football/hearts/hearts-court-battle-france-u-turn-means-clubs-are-relegated-after-all-2897000?amp
  13. I don't feel very strongly either way tbh. It comes down to how much the club needs the money. If the club want the funds and to get a similar amount in for the season ticket revenue they need more games. As you simply can't expect to get £260 for 13/14 home games its more like £200. Offering all home cup games is a way to get extra cash in early and also its relatively low risk unless we go on a run to the QF of the league cup or Scottish Cup and have home ties all the way. Pretty unlikely. Also the argument about playing minnows at home. Assuming the league cup runs and is the October dates you mentioned. That's going to be the first football any of us have seen live for 6/7 months. If its midweek it'll be more like a Saturday attendance. Given the novelty factor.
  14. If the Challenge Cup is happening the League Cup ought to be. Surely they arent running the Wafer Cup but not the League Cup. That beggars belief.
  15. Its not that difficult, you can't get no home games (that's impossible) as the League Cup group format guarantees you at least 2 home games. You are right though, there would then be an element of chance. In other competitions and how far your progress. I wouldnt dismiss it out of hand if the club want £260 for a season ticket with the truncated season it is an option worth considering imo.
  16. Its the same folks who keep calling the top league the SPL. Grinds my gears.
