I'd support AFC & HMFC withdrawing completely or, at the least, stating that they require no ticket allocation whatsoever.

Extreme? Absolutely.....Something needs to give though, the whole set up and approach is sickening.

Personally I have no further domestic games planned, and Israel will be my last international for the foreseeable too.

I'd cancel the latter if we weren't making a family break out of the trip too.

To be fair, it's Derek McInnes's Aberdeen in a cup semi final against Rangers, they're not going to turn up anyway, may as well make it official.

You have to wonder what BT are making of all this. They're a relatively new partner in our game and the hope they might take over coverage completely from Sky has been expressed on here and other forums. They must be wondering what the hell they'd be getting themselves into! 😵

The people in charge of Murrayfield should use a bit of backbone and tell them to bolt!

The chat is that they might.

I read somewhere that a spokesman claimed it had nothing to do with bt. Says they just roll up and screen the matches when they’re told to.....🤔

How Doncaster is still in a job is beyond all understanding. Had he properly consulted all four clubs, and the relevant authorities, in advance of deciding on the two games being at Hampden on the Sunday this mess could have been avoided. A liar and an incompetent.

That's a bit cheeky as Celtic were happy to use Murrayfield for midweek Champions League games in 2014 when Celtic Park was being used for the Commonwealth games.

their argument seems to be they feel hearts will have an advantage, clearly dismissing the fact they have an advantage when they play at hampden.

This has gone beyond embarrassing for the scottish game as a whole

Honest answer is I can't remember, it was around the time he was trying to railroad the new huns into the SPL.

I never made it, so I'm guessing Twitter somewhere!

What advantage do we have at Hampden? Same as Hearts at Murrayfield? None.

When Celtic and Rangers play up at Aberdeen on a Sunday what time does the first train get in to Aberdeen from Glasgow?

I think that’s a fair point to an extent, although you are talking about 1,200 travelling fans rather than potentially 20,000 for a semi final.

When Celtic and Rangers play at Aberdeen on a sunday there aren't 20,000 travelling from Glasgow to Aberdeen.

And the answer to your question is 11.45am.

League games are incomparable, that's why Aberdeen aren't complaining about the 12:15 KO for the league game in Kilmarnock on Sunday 4th November.

I assume macy was replying to me but I have his ramblings on ignore. Celtic have the advantage of having their own end, a minor psychological one but still an advantage. in this situation they'd likely have 40K+ fans because of the kick off times

Whats that got to do with creating a neutral semi final where each club should have the best opportunity to fill 50% of the stadium with their fans?

I admire your spirit, but probably best to try and round up at least another 10 of yer mates from the pub.
