    LOI club involved in Europe post Christmas, did we ever think we'd see it happen.
    Although if the game gets shoved back another month or so Brexit might change all that

    Copa90 have a video up on YouTube about the competition that I watched a few weeks back.

    The general consensus is that people don't want clubs outside of Scotland in the competition, that they just want clubs to make up the numbers and lay down for the Scots. There will be uproar if a non-Scottish club wins the competition.

    Being the sad fecker I am I watched this game over the nations league crap last night, very enjoyable. Never knew Queens Park played at Hampden, it would be like Longford playing home games in the Aviva. Anyway, Connah’s Quay are indeed full time and you can tell by their physical condition. Not sure why they would finish in a LOI setting but they’d certainly be in no danger of relegation that’s for sure.

    TNS and Connah's Quay definitely would be no lower than 6th in our league

    Also Queens Park days playing out of Hampden are numbered, SFA buying the ground off them and Queens Park likely to end up playing in a ground next to it called Lesser Hampden
    The Leinster Senior League needs a strong Bohemians

    We actually have our own version of the queen's Park in Hampden thing with the two rugby clubs (remember the old clubhouses in two corners?) that play there, not sure how often they play in Lansdowne Road or how often Queens Park do but just thought you'd like to know something similar does happen.

    Also Queens parks days in Hampden are numbered as someone else pointed out.

    Can see their point about foreign teams but can't imagine they're losing out on money. From what I can see, the Bohs game had a bigger crowd than their usual games, presumably because more away fans travelled/it was a novelty.

    The Scottish Football League is a member-run body.

    If Peterhead - or any other club - are unhappy with teams from outside Scotland being invited to enter the Irn Bru Cup, they've had ample opportunity to challenge it formally over the last few years. And they can challenge it formally for the next year too through the appropriate mechanism (which I suspect they won't do).

    Of course - if they were genuinely opposed to it, the time to raise it would've been before they were knocked out by a non-Scottish team.

    If Bohs win, then Edinburgh City is the plum draw in there.

    Ross County away would be a bit of a nightmare on a number of levels. And Connahs Quay are a decent side.

    They still have to beat East Fife though.

    Maybe wait for the East Fife game first and then the draw afterwards before making any travel plans

    Didn’t know anybody was “making travel plans” do enlighten us.
    Given the “flexibility” around dates - I think the League here starts around the scheduled date for the semi, it would be very brave to book anything. Obviously the only focus is on East Fife but fans and club will equally obviously be exploring travel options SHOULD we get through.

    FFS - would you ever lighten up !

    Rathfarnham Hoop was talking about people needing to wrap up warm when they go over. There are no fixtures to go over to Scotland for yet (unless his reference was to the weather in North Dublin).

    Cheer up lad - it's almost Christmas.

    I forgot to put "if you qualify" at the end but yeah the northside thing, let's go with that. I'd hope Bohs can beat an average Scottish 3rd division team though
