I don’t understand why anyone would pay for this anyway - quality will be appalling: TV coverage and the game.

 

Its not even an important game and it’s at their shithole?

 

Virtual fans don’t help the team either so that excuse is out the window

 

is anyone going to admit to coughing up for this?

 

Tempted as, you know, I like watching Hearts and it's an important cup game. 12 quid is only about the cost of a meh Chinese takeaway, and a football game lasts a lot longer. But I'm not keen on giving them 6 quid as Alloa (well, Mulraney really) are near top of the hit list. Surely there will be a free stream available?

Smith

Kingsley 

 

Haring

Halkett

 

Walker

Naismith 

White

 

Wighton 

 

Think this would be a deserved XI, wouldn't be unhappy to see some younger players involved though 

Wouldn't put Haring out on the Goals pitch at Alloa.

We'll be fine without him and one of the youngsters to deputise.

It's fairly simple if we are playing another Championship club.  If Robbo isn't their manager, they are baddies.

They're all baddies but we won't shoot Robbo between the eyes.

It's our 2nd most important game this season so far (behind the Hibs semi).

 

Lose it and we've blown the treble.

 

 

 

* I know the Hibs game technically belongs to last season, so I'll clarify: 2nd most important since football restarted (or - most important "this season").

I am not paying even if 50% goes to Hearts.  I will search for a live stream and if not will suffice with audio.

 

Not expecting much from this game.

Just so everyone knows the stream will be absolutely shite. Dunfermline supporting mate streamed their game at Alloa a few weeks ago, said it was so bad he turned it off after half an hour.

Today’s 10,000+ steps will be taken to the sound of Laurie’s commentary, as will next Saturday. Hopefully a nice afternoon for a walk and a good result...

Think we will see a lot of changes for this one. Difficult to guess who, but you would think Irving will definitely be starting, deserves to be given his opportunity to put his hand up and show the new manager the proof that he is better than the experienced midfielders who are starting ahead of him.

I agree, it's each to their own I guess.  But I forked out for ppv for the East Fife game and it was pretty shocking.  Every few minutes my link cut out and I had to refresh to get back on stream, only for it to cut out again after a few minutes.  I only subscribed to the East Fife ppv because they are on the 'good guys' list, but I think I'll give ppv a swerve from now on, regardless of the opponent.

 

 

I done the same, my link was fine tho. 

I won't be giving the clubs on the naughty list any money, but for cup games at least we get half.

I have to give a huge shout out to the people at FOH.  I went onto the site about 10 minutes ago to make a one-off donation of £30, and didn't notice that when you key in your donation, there is another box that shows the .00 amount of the donation, so you only need to key in the whole pounds.  I keyed in £30.00 and was horrified to receive a confirmation for my donation of £3,000!!!

 

I panicked like hell, but contacted the email address on the FOH page and within a few minutes I received a response to say they had cancelled the payment.  Stuart and Barry who dealt with this after 11pm on a Friday night, you guys are heroes!  I can go to bed tonight and sleep comfortably instead of fretting about getting hit with overdraft charges from my bank while awaiting a refund.


😂

A PHM would have paid up though.

Agree don’t think smithy or haring will start. McGill may get a start think he played at east fife on Astro? But it’s a cup tie and needs to be a strong side as possible

I think Halliday will play, he needs as much game time as possible. Irving I reckon will slot in for Haring, maybe McGill could start as well

I wonder if he might give Halkett a rest and try Berra-Popescu? Bit of a risk but they should be able to deal with Alloa and worth seeing how they do together, Halkett must have played every minute of the season

That's my plan too. Up in the local hills with the dogs enjoying the beautiful scenery and the fresh air then back home for a home made curry and a beer hopefully enjoying a convincing Hearts win.

Potential to slip up today.  We’ve just been edging these type of games recently along with unconvincing performances. It’s up for debate whether some of our fringe players truly have the appetite to come in and go full blooded in these matches?  

 

Totally understand there’ll be changes but I hope it’s still a strong-ish side. Every game for me isn’t just about improving, it’s about changing our mentality back to how it should be. Every game is a small step. Go out to win every match.

Halks was rested for the East Fife game but must be tempting to do it again as he is very key to our team this season.

I’m really hoping we don’t give fringe players a run out today. Our strongest 11 is what I want to see. Bring on a few players and rest others if we are 3 up but we’re not good enough yet to be complacent or dismissive of the opposition. We are only a few games into the campaign, no need to rest anyone.

That's an idea.  I'm trying to get out and take some exercise every day.  In the past, I've always tried to be back in time for KO.  No reason at all why I can't "Walk with Laurie" though.

Tbf, it's  9 games since we started plus internationals for some, not too much, but a fair amount.Some players have played a lot over the past 2 weeks. 

 

Dont want any key players picking up niggles right now. 

 

Our niggles tend to  go on a bit as well... 😭

Can see Smith, Haring & possibly Naismith missing out due to injury concerns & that crap pitch. 

Brandon / Logan must be good enough to set in at RB, maybe Irving as deep lying playmaker to allow Halliday to get forward. 

Front two of Boyce & Wighton please.

Hope Ginnelly gets a run out & Roberts/ Frear finally give us a good game.

I think whoever plays will go out to win the match. 

The quality of some of our replacements is questionable but we should be able to replace a few and still win the match.

I would play a few of the youngsters today, they have far more experience of playing on these pitches. No Berra or Haring or Naismith from the start  and Smith went off the other night so might not be risked.

That’s a good shout too, Gordon did play against Cowdenbeath and East Fife on the artificial pitch though. Definitely have his trackies on though. They should wear NFL style bottoms with padding. The Adidas GK strips used to have padding in the arms.

The Livvy loan guy looked okay in the previous league cup game he played in.

 

Would play Henderson and Moore today to give us a bit of energy. No ponderous tappy stuff. We need players running at their defenders.

 

And Frear can do his Christmas shopping.

I agree, it's a knockout competition, if they are fit the strongest team should play. We should have a strong enough squad, especially with the shortened season, to deal with the league so cup shouldn't be sacrificed unnecessarily.
