That should be 12 points right there.

If we don't win the group, a consistent owner would 'cathro' the manager.

Missing Cowden away which I'm slightly disappointed about. Shite ground and the place is a shitehole but I weirdly enjoyed the trips through there in the championship.

 

Won't make united at home either, hopefully be able to catch that on holiday though.

 

Back for the Stenny and East Fife games. What was the ticket allocation for the game against Raith at East Fife last year?

Happy with the fixtures only need to ask for an early finish for Cowdenbeath away. Can’t wait to get back into competitive games. It’s only just been over a week since the final and I’m hating not having Hearts ruin my weekends. 12th July can’t come quick enough

Agreed. United at home might not be as straight forward as the others but anything other than four wins would be massively disappointing.

I don't think we can expect 12 points though - we are not that good at the moment

With them entering their fourth season (?) in the wilderness, and with small crowds, you would expect them to be a different animal to the team that used to regularly give us a bloody nose a few seasons ago, but they are almost certainly going to be our toughest opponents. First game of the season at home under the floodlights though? I'd be all but expecting a positive result. Shouldn't take any team lightly, but I would make us clear favourites at home.

Could have left it at that ...

 

Clearly you’ve not been paying attention again. We’re specialists in winning easy cup ties now. It’s mediocre league games that we struggle with. Beat Dundee United and we will win the group with either 12 or 10 points.

Buzzing for the Dundee United game. Perfect Friday night fixture. They'll bring a decent crowd too.

 

I'm in Greece for Cowdenbeath and won't go to Stenny at home due to football training, but my first trip to Methil should be a laugh.

Did you watch them in the play offs? We will start the season very much on the front foot. The task is to maintain that past Halloween this time.

good to get Dundee Utd first - win that & hopefully get a good buzz around the place early on.  

 

First game I’ll make will be the stenny game - looking forward to proper football starting back already.

Never been to East Fife, going to tick that of the list of grounds visited.  Disappointed that there's no trip to Stenny.

 

Can't bring myself to go back to Cowdenbeath after the two trips there in the Championship season.

My 1st child will be born around the time this starts so I will miss all the games and will get to a handful of league games although I have renewed my season ticket but will pick and choose the games. We should win this group comfortably though.

Was really hoping for a game at Tannadice, for purely selfish reasons :lol: 

 

Cowdenbeath alright to get to on the train, but Methil will be a pain in the arse - will have to take the car, so won't be able to enjoy a wee bevvy!

We are not playing 'at the moment'.

 

We will have new signings and a fit Steven Naismith playing, hopefully. 

 

I expect 12 points without any problems whatsoever.

 

Show some positivity FFS.

I wonder if the Cowdenbeath hospitality still involves the local curry house providing the food.  

 

I've heard good things about it.

You're right, we haven't won a game since last season, and the team didn't even turn up at the weekend.

 

Boooooo, everyone oot!!111!

I had a feeling we'd have got East Fife at home and Stenny away

 

Never mind

 

12 points has to be achievable

We have not won a single League Cup game in 2019.

 

We haven't beaten Cowdenbeath or East Fife for a year, and I can't even remember when we last beat Stenhousemuir. 

 

Might as well not bother showing up.

Might have to miss the midweek ones due to work but happy enough with the other two. East Fife may be a struggle to get tickets for though.

4 wins is the minimum. Seeding helps for next round. 

 

3 wins and a draw probably enough to win the group / qualify as one of best 4 runners up. 

 

All lower league sides. Unsure why anyone would expect us to lose.

I actually really like Central Park. I’ve been to way more stock car meets there than football games, but great memories all the same.

No wonder you’re always asking questions! You have the lowest base level of football knowledge on this forum. That is a staggering achievement.

On a thread about cup games he's talking about the amount of league games won in 2019. 

 

The 4 cup games won in 2019 dont count when on a thread about cup games.

Well, how many do you think we will win Rick?  1? 2?

 

Stenhousemuir and East Fife will certainly present stern tests and if we can come away with a couple of draws I'll be more than happy.

 

If the top 2 qualify, I think we might scrape in.

No doubt Budge and Levein will find some excuse if we don’t win all 4 games.

I'm sure someone posted last season get a train to Markinch, then a wee taxi trip down the road. We might give that a try if we get tickets.
