Looking forward to tonight’s game. Winning the group is certainly doable - next target after that would be having one of the best 4 group winner records so we are seeded for last 16 draw.

Yep getting too far ahead of myself but unlike some I think this is quite an exciting scenario.

Much better than friendlies - a rare winner from the football powers that be emoji846.png

I'm firmly in your camp on this one South Side. A decent format for an early season competition which mixes teams together in the group stages. Still got 3 games to go but have given ourselves a chance. I like your point about seeding. I'll be there tonight and for the other group games. Will be good to see some of the old and new faces in the team. COYS

If you are outside the Uk your VPN should be off..

Ironically Cambud, despite Jersey being outside the UK for the purposes of UK broadcasting rights, it’s deemed to be in the UK. Hence why I need the VPN to pretend I’m abroad. Something isn’t working now though whereas it worked fine last season.

Benjamin Franklin once said

"Our new Constitution is now established, and has an appearance that promises permanency; but in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” 

Footnote- Unless you live in the Channel Islands- its just death, but a lot more money whilst living - you lucky bastards !!!"

 Cheers for that. It appears to be suggesting my IP address is in Gothenburg, which I guess is good?

So why the feck is SMTV restricting my access??? Grrrrrr

Looks like a similar type of game to East Kilbride in the Irn Bru cup last year.

Spartans seemingly defended very well against Dumbarton but offered little going forward. Jack Smith, part of "dome-gate" a few years ago, will be up front for them: http://www.scotzine.com/2013/04/st-mirren-alleged-to-have-used-youth-players-as-construction-labourers/

Hopefully we can get an early goal and have a relaxing night.

Not good news, and really tough. Surprised they haven't requested to reschedule.
