2019/20 League Cup

Recommended Posts

Even the order in which teams come out of the hat has a bearing on it all. Last season we ended up with our two away games first (Partick and Ayr) meaning that we were out of the cup before we’d even played a home game.

Forfar, Hamilton & Morton through as best runners-up. The fourth spot is currently occupied by East Fife, but if Dundee & ICT draw tomorrow then they’re both through with East Fife going out.

I'm sure it will be a highly competitive match tomorrow. Having said that, Inverness managed to bottle it last season when all they had to do was not get totally pumped by Hearts in the final game.

This is of course exactly why all all group games should be at the same time, and hang the fecking TV .

Cue a turgid 0-0

Not all but certainly the last set of games, ala champions league and world cup.

I mean, we were totally fucked over by the SPFL/SFA (whoever runs this shit) as Hearts should have been docked 3 points rather than 2, which was totally bizarre.

No point having groups in that case.

Would prefer that in the Scottish cup.128 teams in the first round proper and just a free for all draw.

A fan of an unseeded, seaside league diddy team like Falkirk would say that though.

It might happen but us and Ayr were in the same position last year where a draw put us both through regardless of the outcome of the shootout, but they gubbed us 2-0 and we squeaked through after hearts beat Inverness.

Nice constructive post, in general I don't agree with seeding in any competition doesn't matter weather Falkirk are seeded or not

I wonder which of Forfar or East Fife Rangers or Celtic will get at home ? 

A better draw would be Hearts v Rangers/Celtic. But fully expect the Well to draw Hearts away as rewards for 4 wins and zero goals conceded. 

Would like to get a different team. So anyone apart from Hamilton, Hearts and Dundee. Partick or Dunfermline home or away would make a decent game.

Getting a trip to Pittodrie before Aberdeen relocate to a little island off the coast of Suriname would be nice, but I’d really just like to avoid Motherwell away.

We've played Celtic and Rangers in this round in the two years that we've made it through, so it's nice not to be able to draw them. Probably Hearts instead.
