Wonder then if the media talk of scrapping Scottish Cup replays is an alternative. 

Should have been done years ago.

A knock out cup tie should be just that with extra time and penalties if necessary.

It would also give smaller clubs a better chance of causing an upset.

FA cup final in England not moved, even though Wembley is also being used for Euro 2020. SFA making up their own rules again

 

 

Aye but Wembley is actually a real stadium.  Will take Petrie and Maxwell weeks to make Hampden look like something resembling a football stadium to their Uefa chums.

In order to do that they would need to play 2 or 3 more midweek games (assuming there is free dates available).

I just can't understand why about 4 weeks isn't enough time to "prepare" the pitch/stadium after a normal cup final date.

 

 

Or scrap the mid season break

Maybe they are just allowing time to repair the place in case any fans get "over exuberant" at the final and wreck the pitch

Seems the sensible option. It's been done before that they suspended the break one season iirc, although I can't recall the reason...can't be because we were in finals 😀. Possibly when Real won Champions final at Hampden?
