🇱🇻 Arbroath v ICTFC 🇱🇺 - WILLIE COLLUM IN THE MUD

Ask the joint winners of the first Scottish league title in 1893 while lots of sports have tied series so not an entirely unknown concept. I assume the teams share a calm satisfaction over their shared achievement, possibly a more mature reaction than the increasingly stage-managed and mandated festivities.  No platform, podiums or even helicopters for Arbroath promotions in the 60s and 70s.  Not necessarily the preferred resolution (that would be a replay) but in many ways much fairer than the farce of a penalty lottery deciding a major final.

Would far rather be runners up than share a trophy. That sounds horrific.

Did Raith and Caley not share the Challenge Cup when the pandemic ended the season?

I honestly could not care less. Caley been our bogey team all season in 480 minutes we scored 1 fluke goal v them and we were top scorers in league. Inverness away days are either terrible or amazing depending on when they’re scheduled for. I really couldn’t be arsed if they went up or down. 
 

St Johnstone too. Like that would be more fun and a better away day but again I’m not overly arsed about who wins final

It was worse than that, it was 1 goal in 570 minutes - 6 x 90 minutes + 30 minutes extra time.

For some reason I thought the semi final was only one game 

 

Probably because the first leg was so eye bleeding

In the first game Arbroath were there for the taking.  In the second game, we were there for the taking!  When we went down to nine twice, why didn't Arbroath just pummel us?  Our only attacking outlet was Joe Hardy who must be the smallest player in Scottish football and yet Arbroath's game didn't change at all.

Even Bobby Linn came on I don't remember Arbroath trying to get the ball wide and stretch us - it was just the continued blootering forward and when he always had at least two big lumps at the back that was never going to be effective.

Arbroath remind me a wee bit of us under Terry Butcher - they know how they play and the players all know their jobs, but if the conditions change or the tactics don't work there's no way of changing it.

Clearly you don’t actually read the posts, just throw in random barbs..   We have NO problems going out on penalties.  This was actually about the old chestnut re whether penalties are the best way to decide a FINAL which maybe arose again in Europe this week.
