    Russia - The World Cup

    Mbappe was indeed the star of the tournament. Let’s see where England are at Qatar with all of Russia 18 players well within age to play there also and with four years for players to push on/fall out.

    That also shows he is thinking of his future after football. Credit to him.

    Look at Meggison at Cove he got offers from premiership clubs in scotland but in his own words his wage in his normal job and the extra he gets in part time football was better than what they were offering.

    Right now the money in English football is ruining the game throughout Europe - Low end teams spending 30M+ on bang average foreign players, lower levels paying more in wages and transfer fees than top leagues in Europe. Salford are another Gretna - they will continue to get fans due to the ManU connection from those who cant afford Old Trafford, but as they go up the leagues the money needed will increase and sooner or later the pockets of the ManU group will close leaving either other investors or sustainability. The documentary they did spoke of something for the local community, giving back to grass roots but clearly the lure of glory and limelight was too much for all concerned. TV & CL money is ruining the game at all levels - the fees involved are crazy and fans are turning off at teams with foreign players and mediocre players just there for the cash and no loyalty. I'd rather follow a diddy team, in a diddy league in a diddy country then be cheated as a fan of some EPL teams right now.

    Hearts field ineligible player against Cove

    I still think that our Board had something to do with it.

    Hearts field ineligible player against Cove

    Agreed and that would also be a fair and proportionate response for what is effectively a mini league rather than a knock out situation at this stage.

    Hearts field ineligible player against Cove

    Wouldn’t Cove feel cheated? Hearts did not have that player at their disposal but used him for 25 mins in a tight game. Could Cove not realistically have drawn/got a bonus point had Hearts had to field an inferior player on the pitch. Surely Cove have to be given the replay or three points for there to be equity; that was their right and opportunity to get 1,2 or 3 points but was spoiled, sullied or distorted. If it’s akin to being cheated out of a contractual obligation , a retrial/replay is needed with Hearts bearing full costs and more.

    At the level ICT are at now there is room for very few semi-established, sold performing ‘outsiders’ from England. I think the club means to have a squad of 12-14 local players and 3-5 incoming players who serve a specific purpose. I don’t see that being much more than a mid-table Championship ambition and that’s not a dig, just being realistic. At this level, first team players can only expect to be earning the same as a professional in a civil service role and at best means the odd yo-yo into the top division. Hoping for a Livingston - expecting a Dunfermline. England continues to be a more lucrative draw at all levels. The board are not wrong in their sustainability and low-cost approach, I just wish it was more realistic in terms of promotion and ambition when considering the landscape.

    In thinking more about it it would seem the logical outcome would be to deduct the points from Hearts but not award Cove 3 points as its a league game effectively.

    Hearts field ineligible player against Cove

    There isn't a perfect precedent for this. Albion Rovers were thrown out of the competition, but that was in a knockout tie rather than the group stage of a competition. Just over two years ago Dundee United did something similar in a league game against us where they won 3-2 - they were deducted three points, but we were not awarded them. I think the most likely outcome is that either Hearts are deducted the points, or that Cove are awarded a walkover victory. I don't see Hearts being thrown out because they have three group games left - if nothing else, it would deny other clubs much needed cash from the matches (assuming gate money is split like in most cup competitions!). Either of the above would be obviously to our advantage as, if we beat Raith, the only way a team could finish above us would be on goal difference.

    And another one he knew nothing about (and was offside). He takes a mean penalty though. But I think it is fair to say that for the first time ever, there won’t be many kids around the world pretending to be the World Cup’s golden boot winner, as there were many better strikers.

    Albion Rovers it was last season Read more at: https://www.scotsman.com/sport/football/teams/albion-rovers/albion-rovers-booted-out-of-irn-bru-cup-for-fielding-ineligible-player-1-4541179 So don’t know how SPFL can treat Hearts any different than what effectively is the same offence.

    Russia - The World Cup

    Thoroughly enjoyed what turned out to be a very entertaining tournament. Only sour point for me was Harry Kane winning the Golden Boot when 3 of his 6 strikes were from penalties. Given some of the fantastic goals we saw during the tournament I just felt his winning of the award was a bit of a let-down and slap in the face to some of the exciting strikers who were far more capable in front of the goal from open play than he was.

    You will need to go into your ticket account online and you will find your e ticket for the Raith game there in the form of a QR code. It will not be added to your season ticket. I thought this is what happened but Minique in the shop explained that they haven't quite got everything set up properly just yet. So yeah, make sure you have your phone on you for the game next Tuesday.

    They can't add it to your season ticket at present so it must be show your mobile at the turnstiles. It must be tough being an oldie 😜

    This really does highlight the stark difference in cash flowing around the leagues north and south of the border. If Aberdeen are losing out to lower league English clubs there seems little in the way of hope for the rest of us building half decent squads. Something for us to bear in mind next time anyone wants to have a dig at ICT for an apparent inability to secure top class proven ability...

    Quick question if anyone can help. I’ve just bought the ticket for the Raith game using this method it’s classed as a mobile ticket does that mean it’s added to my season ticket card or do I show my mobile phone at the checkout an oldies question for all you young uns😀

    Allow were thrown out of the competition were they not for similar reason?

    I initially chuckled about our ex-player Adam Rooney choosing Salford City over The Dims. But, an equivalent of a Highland League club being chosen over the '2nd best team' (not my words) in our country is alarming. It also highlights the money in the English game. Seems everyone but PSG and maybe Man City is probably a feeder club.

    Jake Mulraney

    Fair point and quite right. In all honesty, if Hearts are as 'professional' an outfit as Mulraney thinks then he will be on loan to a Championship side by January imo.
  27. Likely to be a fine. Nobody ever made an admin error in their job? Bring on Raith Rovers and take care of our own fate.
