Would the Challenge Cup be better IF

 

Its between all 30 SPFL Clubs (Outside Premier) together with Highland & Lowland teams (34 clubs)

Gives a nice round number of 64 teams involved, And everyone starts in the first round

Well yes, it would. But its fairly doubtful you would find a sponsor for it to cover the loss of the foreign tv monies so it may be uneconomic to run.

Im pretty sure the competition survived when there was no tv money.

Im sure it will survive without it.

It survived in the SFL days because they subsidised it from central funds, something the SPFL will not do. It survived post merger because the presence of Rangers and then Hearts and Hibs raised profile and sponsorship. It might raise enough to run domestically, it might not. Its certainly likely the buttons prize money it brings now would be reduced further though. Its barely worthwhile now.

Ho hum, back to the real business of securing League One survival. All the best to the Staggies in the next round.

Motherwell Colts dispatched Sligo Rovers 2-0 in front of a crowd of 950.

I can confirm Motherwell U20s actually pass the ball and play good football.

Hoping for Bohemian/Coleraine/Connahs Quay away in the next round. We'll probably get Motherwell U20s at home.

yehbut - has anyone been to the County v Montrose game, and can they comment on the nature of the play, the chosen team and incidents of note?

We barely got out of first gear and were far too good for Montrose. Their goal was a horrific mix up front Fonts, Draper and Fox. Fox especially seemed to be in "fanny around with the ball at his feet" mode. No bookings, no injuries, some nice passing at times but like I said, we just cruised it for 90 minutes.

Game put to bed in stoppage time, Nomads 2-0 Coleraine.

Half the Nomads players lucky not to have been hospitalised due to some of the tackles that went in.

Beginning to warm to this competition. That might be down to the celebratory V&Ts  kicking in however...

I know we are not welcome but I thoroughly enjoyed our match today, would be interesting to see Hastie against Alloa in the next round.

I thought we were absolutely smashing. Shout out to Craigan for going baws oot with a 433.

Kept waiting for Sligo to kick up a gear but it never really happened. Granted there was the whole thing with them being delayed in getting over here but aside from a few lapses when we seemed to tire and get a bit slack with some passing I thought we controlled the game really well. Getting a relatively early goal clearly helped in that respect. First time I'd seen Rehman and I thought he did alright. Same with Broque Watson.

Each of our midfield three looked comfortable on the ball. Mbulu and Maguire were solid enough at the back and the full backs MacDonald in particular were really impressive.

Genuinely quite interested to see what happens with Hastie. IIRC his loan at Alloa is only until January. Do we keep him out on loan and allow him to be playing week in week out in the Championship or do we bring him back in and possibly reduce the amount of minutes he'll play but give him the chance of first team football.
