Is there not an element here of wee boys going behind the bike sheds to compare willies, but with the strange twist of each secretly hoping his will be the smallest so he can find something to blame h

Nope not really.  I think the lead up to the SC final was fab. There was the shop in town, The posters on the high street, the scarves on Inverness statues, open training sessions at the bught an

It does seem the club is damned if it does and damned if it doesn't on this. Some fans okay with what is happening and others obviously displeased. There does seem to be an air of constant negativity

It's only fair to have exactly between the two clubs - Claggan Park, Fort William!

I am sure the pitch will be better than ours!

They tend to be on a Sunday.

If it is 24 or 25 March as planned, I need it to be the Sunday, preferably in Oerth as I am at a birthday party on the Saturday evening.

Oerth

In the Dungeons & Dragons roleplaying gameOerth is the fictional planet on which one of the earliest campaign settings, the World of Greyhawk, is located. Oerth has an axial tilt of 30 degrees, which would cause greater seasonal temperature variation than on Earth, were it not for wizardly and divine magic that shifts weather patterns to be more favorable to the populace.

Why don’t they find a park with up to 3000 capacity as that should be more than enough

I know one - Claggan Park (it's officially a public park).  The campaign starts here!

Sounds like a plan, never been to their ground. Ideal excuse to visit the Grog & Gruel again.

It'll probably be Palmerston...just in case TNS had knocked out Dumbarton...:lol:

For selfish reasons, hope it's Saturday 24th (as can't make it on the Sunday).

McDairmid park would be decent (and will hopefully be the same outcome as in 2003!)

Someone told me a while back that it would be McDiarmid Park no-matter who was in it, but I don't know how true that is.  Inverness to Perth is roughly two and quarter hours.  Dumbarton to Perth is about an hour and a half I imagine.  It's near enough centrally.  Other options?  I assume Greater Glasgow, Aberdeen, Livingston and Edinburgh are non-starters, so Tannadice and Dens would maybe be do-able but then you'd have everyone going east.  East End Park would be a good tight venue for the final but it's far closer to Dumbarton than Inverness.

This must be easy enough to finalise immediately. Neither us, Dumbarton or St Johnstone have a match scheduled for 24/25 March. Plus no negotiations with Welsh or NI bodies needed. 

Free weekend club football wise also because Scotland v Costa Rica on Friday 23rd.

With a bit of discussion with interested parties including television, you would have thought they could have selected a venue date and time for the final before the competition even started.  Teams entering would be entering on condition they accept those details.  Maybe word will break out on March 23rd.

Learning points for next year. Don't want RC having the same hassle next season. :clapoverhead:
