Hearts Game

Recommended Posts

Just noticed Hearts are due to play their league cup semi same day we are supposed to be playing them at home (27 October).

I would assume our game will be moved to midweek, although there is an issue with scheduling the cup games because Celtic & Rangers are both playing in the Europa League on the 25 October.

We are also supposed to play Celtic on 31 October. Good time to play them after they've faced two tough games.

A disgrace and a boot in the baws for non OF fans.

It is, especially Aberdeen fans, first train gets to Weegie Station 15 minutes after kick-off. All buses, and their highland supporters clubs will be leaving about 3am.

The SFA/SPFL will say it's the Police who forced the decision, but essentially this just confirms that it makes no difference who's in charge of either organisation, they're just not interested in considering the impact on clubs outside the OF. Hopefully it'll be an Aberdeen v Hearts final.

On the face of it, maybe.

But, there are contractual reasons meaning it has to be both ties at Hampden unless the police veto it - they didn't. I don't think we can blame the football authorities for that.

I don't think there was any other suitable date.

The games do Not have to be at Hampden. Aberdeen played St.Johnstone at Tynecastle in a semi recently therefore how can it be contractual?  One game could easily have been at Murrayfield thereby not enforcing one clubs fans, Hearts, to, travel, and could have been at 12 noon even. Its a lack of care that most clubs and bodies consider.

Unfortunately, there is a contract in place which states that both semis MUST take place at Hampden UNLESS the police say no.  This was stated in the media today.  It may be a new agreement hence previous examples such as you quote.

Aberdeen and Hearts both furious with the scheduling. Quite rightly - no thought for fans as per usual.

Hearts pushing for their league fixture with Celtic the following week to be postponed to allow the cup game to take place then. Seems to be the most sensible solution.

Perhaps our game with Hearts won't get moved after all. What a farce! Neil Doncaster has got away with making an a**e of things more times than McCann.

There was nothing to stop them playing the semis on consecutive weekends. The final isn't until 2nd December.

The 'contractual' issue simply highlights the lack of overall competence within the Hampden offices....it's not difficult to imagine both OF clubs reaching the LC semis & both being in the Europa League. BBC's online vote, incidentally, is 95% 'No' to the question "Is the SPFL right to play both semi-finals on the same day at Hampden?"

....the next issue will be Celtic moaning about the state of the pitch at 7:45.

Fine. Play on different days.
