Yeah, suppose so. A cup final and a trip to some bumpkin village in Wales would be a terrible thing to happen admist another s***e bottom half finish.

 

What's the point exactly of Morton if mid-table drudgery and no cup success of any kind is the order of the day? Might as well just appoint Dick Campbell, stick Dunga McClung in as captain and play our games at Parklea if we don't want to achieve something. We really ain't in a position to be looking down our noses at any tournament.

East Fife being in a Scottish Cup final has nothing to do with valuing the challenge Cup.

If you asked them if they would swap their challenge Cup semi final to be where Morton is they'd bite your hand off for it.

Challenge Cup is a trophy for me that you get excited about once you reach the semi final, but until then we could play our under 12s team for all I care.

It isn't, no, but it's a bloody grim state of affairs that East Fife have had more national success than Morton, and in the post-war period too. Morton's modern record is pish and so is the historical one. If we want to run about with ideas of being a "sleeping giant" we should probably do something about it rather than tolerate season after season mediocrity.

I wouldn’t mind having a cup final to look forward to, however tinpot it might be, in seasons as bleak as this. Don’t blame folk for not giving a toss though, get the colts/foreigners in the bin.

No, get the colts in the bin and replace them with more Highland & Lowland League sides. Keep the foreigners, the chance of a good away trip is infinitely preferable to getting Dumbarton away for the millionth time.

 

It's an absolute guarantee that everyone who talks about not giving a fuck about the Challenge Cup and supports playing the youth teamwould love a final.

Scottish Championship strugglers Falkirk are poised to make a January transfer move to sign Motherwell striker Ross MacLean on a permanent basis, with the 21-year-old haven fallen out of favour on loan to Greenock


It gives added meaning to the "their not our players" thing if they know that at least one of them is already a Falkirk player in their head.

That being said, who knows if there's actually something to this is or if it's in the paper because we've all been thinking it anyway.

Can’t say I’m that bothered about it.
I booked to go on a stag do next year, when I checked who we were playing that weekend I noticed it was the date of the challenge cup final as well.
I didn’t think s***, if we make it to the final I’ll need to cancel my plans.
