Tunnock's Caramel Wafer Cup SF Draw

Recommended Posts

I also despise the Colt teams being in this competition. I hope we utterly pump them.

Agreed. I would be sorely tempted to scratch from the competition in protest were it not for the fact that that would rightly be seen as hypocrisy given that we have effectively inserted our colts team into the Highland League thus compromising the I integrity of that venerable competition.

That's a fair point...

Am sure the uglies will arrive looking for a Cup Final place to go to, plus a feed of biscuits.

If they do reach the finals, and assuming they win, wonder if they'll remove the Colt sides cos of how much money goes into their squads....

They will take a decent following with them I think going by the other games they have played in this cup so far. Some extra cash in for us. 

Hopefully we will have more fans in our end than them.

What a disappointing competition this has been for us in terms of opposition. Not one game against any of the Irish, Welsh or English sides. How refreshing would that have been? And now we get a side from that shambolic excuse for a football club. Hope we pump them but, on current form, that doesn't seem likely. We have until mid Feb to sort ourselves out.

Picking up on that, it feels...off. Rangers are the only side in the tournament who've managed to draw foreign opposition for three rounds on the trot.

Not sure if I'm over thinking it here, but it kinda feels like the SPFL are making sure the biggest fan base goes down south to the national league, to be met by another big fan base, selling out the ground, then ultimately profiting...

The SFA have nothing to do with this competition.

Yes and a lot of them resident in Inverness and the surrounding area too.

True, apart from appointing referees & linesman and dealing with all player registrations and disciplinary procedures, the SFA has nothing to do with it.

In my opinion its imperative for Scottish football that ICTFC win this, much in the same way that a non-Scottish team winning this competition makes it a mockery, a colt team will do little but compound the argument that colt teams (especially the OF) should be allowed to enter the lower leagues based on being highly competitive and bringing good crowds. So far all other colts have been honking in this competition, so this should be shown as an exception rather than a demonstration of capability.

Not sure ICTFC are in any position to be taking a stand against the idea of entering colt teams in the lower leagues given what we did with Fort William!

As far as I am aware we do not have a Colts team in the highland league. We have loaned players to a club upnthe highland league. Nowhere does it say Nairn county etc playing ICTFC Colts. Irrelevant how many players have been loaned out. They play for fort William.
