  1. 5th Place

    Nope. Falkirk beat QoS 4-3 (1-2, 3-1 aet) in the QF Hamilton beat Falkirk 2-1 (1-1, 0-1) in the SF Hamilton beat Hibs 4-3 on pens (0-2, 2-0 aet) in the Final
  2. 5th Place

    Hamilton relegated Hibs in the first season of this format in 2013/14.
  3. Dunfermline game - Free entry?

    That’s a very good point. I take it that should the club not do this, it would have to securely destroy all details held and start again from scratch? Is anyone at the club responsible for marketing, or was this a victim of the cutbacks post relegation?
  4. Dunfermline game - Free entry?

    We’ve definitely had these in the past - the club was able to identify who had bought semi-final tickets in 2015 to allow an early bird sale for the final. I also get marketed too from time to time as a former season ticket holder.
  5. Dumbarton -V- Inverness CT

    Yes, but it really is one game at a time from now.
  6. Dumbarton -V- Inverness CT

    Maybe we should have tried that last season...
  7. Dennis Wyness

    Surely “He used to be sh1te, but now he’s alright”?
  8. Dumbarton v ICT - Game On Wed

    So you don’t think we’re winning the play offs, Mantis? 🤔
  9. Contracts - Who to get tied up?

    Seems a good bit of business.
  10. Going Ballistic

    A spoonful of voddy helps the paperwork go down?
  11. Inverness CT -V- Falkirk

    Not up on SFA website yet.
  12. We don’t. If we win all our games, we finish no lower than fourth. Whether we are able to do that is a completely different matter.
  13. Yup. Entirely in our own hands.
  14. QOS -V- Inverness CT

    If we win all our remaining games, we will have 59 points. Dunfermline can then only get to 58, Morton to 56 and QoS to 52 (as we have to beat both Dunfermline & Morton to win all our games) and we would finish at least 4th, irrespective of what Dundee Utd do. So it’s entirely in our own hands - not that it will be easy.
  15. Dundee reject £1.8M bid for Caulker

    Shinnie and Meekings - -at least - were offered the opportunity to extend their contracts, but chose not to. If we had cashed in on Shinnie when we could, I doubt we’d have won the cup. I’m not sure if this is still the case, but players on a four year contract could leave for free at the end of year 3 - Andy Webster used that to leave Hearts. The key is to try and make sure younger players don’t have contracts that expire after the cut off point for development fees. All of this is easier said than done though. Players know the rules, and if they can move for nothing, that means there is more in the pot for signing on fees and wages. And if you sign a player to a longer contract, you may end up paying over the odds for a dud.
