Good game to watch. Talbot was the better side and created a few more chances, but Bluebell was always in the game.

I though that Talbot started sitting in midway through the 2nd half, allowing Bluebell a lot more of the ball and they took advantage with the equaliser and a worldy second to go in front. 

The Bluebell defender was unlucky with the first penalty as he knew nothing about it and it was awarded under the new interpretation of handball.  It wasn't the best penalty and the keeper saved it relatively comfortably, but I think he was hard done by when he went after the rebound and the Talbot player went down in the challenge and the ref gave a second penalty. I was standing behind the goal and had a great view of it. The keeper certainly got a good hand on the ball to knock it out for a corner.

Bluebell could easily have snatched it at the end as Talbot continued to defend rather than look for a winner. 

Decent crowd too which looked close to 500.

 

Canny really argue about your report. Was at the other side of the pitch when the second penalty was given so can't comment. I honestly don't know why Talbot sat back and let the Bluebell boss the middle of the park in the second half, but they paid the price for it. Well don the Buebell staff for getting the game on. Looking forward to the replay.

Historic day for us and the Haws yesterday, was always going to be a tough ask for us to get a result there, it was a bitch of a draw for our debut.

That said, after a 6th minute setback, the game was fairly even throughout with few clear cut chances created, the downpour towards the end of the first half and during haltime almost made the pitch unplayable. Another downpour and I think it could have been abandoned. Both sides reduced to 10 men early second half, one a harsh straight red for one of our centre halfs for a shirt tug which the ref presumably intepreted as denying a clear goalscoring opportuniyy, and a red no more than 5 minutes later for the Haws no.6 for a sliding studs up challenge. Haws sealed it with a penalty needlessly given away with about 10 to go as we chased the equaliser.

The good thing is, we can say "always next season".  Crowd I believe was given as 217.

Personally thought it was a good game with 2 good sides.  When we went 2-1 up unfortunately we couldn’t hold it for any length of time.  Both penalties for me but in the build up to them the ball was out when played down the line and if linesman did his job then we would have held the lead.  Cest la vie looking forward to Saturday.

Is it still in Blantyre? 

Quite fancy this being a Sunday game, and the floodlight fundraising continues. 

Somewhat strange in that you could possibly argue that preliminary round 2 has a higher percentage of more difficult ties than the first round proper. (not to be confused with some excellent sides entering at round 1).

Either way, hope the Welfare prevail.

If it's drawn then on paper you would try again on Tuesday - not Monday - to avoid playing 2 days in a row.

If off on Sunday then on paper you would try again on Monday - so that if it was drawn you've a blank day before the replay on Wednesday.

However given Blantyre's lack of lights it might be better to say Tuesday whatever: more time + less uncertainty = helps players work/etc.?

Aye, I doubt the SFA are that bothered if teams actually stick too the Monday/Wednesday routine.

Rules ask for Saturday, Monday,Wednesday until the tie is won but if clubs agreed then I don’t think Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday would be too harmful.

Strictly-speaking the rules require attempts to be made on Mondays + Wednesdays, but clubs can agree Tuesdays + Wednesdays instead.

Well, their PR replied to LTHV's tweet, basically trying to say it's nothing to do with them.

Which in a technical sense might be correct - probably the tractor and driver are Edinburgh City Council equipment and employees - but EL manage the facilities take the money and are an arms-length trust of ECC, IIRC.

The whole "arm's length" thing is a fiction for tax purposes. It's the same here in West Lothian, the ALO will do whatever the council asks, the council just doesn't ask in public.

Absolutely gutted for LTHV, work their arses off to get a chance to play in the Scottish Cup then have it end up a farce and playing a home game in WL because of some dim-witted, jobsworth council employee! Surely he could see for the first cut he was causing damage but just continued on regardless, total muppet
