Scottish Cup 2019 - 2020

Recommended Posts

When the draw was made I was  confident about this match but with a pretty tepid defeat at home to Accies, the winter break and the 'build up' to the match concerning Robinson there is an accumulation of factors that might unsettle us.

We should still win, Dundee's form has been far from stellar a division below us, I just hope this doesn't turn out to be a damp squib. The second half of the season is almost like a new season in itself these days so you are never sure what you are going to get.

I was hoping we would have a striker in for today. We got caught out in the cup last season by not taking the game seriously enough so hopefully that doesn't happen again. 

Campbell, Scott and a few others will hopefully be refreshed by the break. I've seen a bit of Dundee on the BBC Friday night games and I think there is a good chance either Gallagher or Hartley score from a set piece as their defence is minging.

Also this must be the first time two managers have met in the Scottish Cup who are both undergoing criminal prosecution. A historic tie!

Fine if you're driving. Not so simple if you take the train as I doubt there will much happening after 9pm.

I'm stuck on an over-nighter.

Two nights, in fact, plus the mistress, as it was the only way she'd let us go.

To be fair to Robinson, he's generally aware when mistakes have been made and takes measures to stop it happening again. The very reason we played a game in Tenerife and vs Hibs is to avoid a repeat of last seasons exit to Ross County. No excuses for a poor performance tonight.

Also, we did have games scheduled last season during the break, but for various reasons were called off leaving us high and dry.

Dundee's game being cancelled last week has also levelled the playing field a bit more.

That would make sense, although Randolph's latest move is to be the backup at West Ham.

Which is ironic, as he initially left West Ham for first team football. I guess at the age he is now he's happy to play backup and earn decent dough.

The best part is he’s injured and they have signed him to stand in for the injured fabianski

He's only 32.  Not old for a goalkeeper.  Could easily still have 6, 7, 8 seasons in front of him.

No shocks or upsets today. Hopefully we can keep that going.

 

When is the draw for round 5?

I would have said Ayr beating Ross County could be viewed as a slight shock.

Where’s the best place to park in and around Dens, and where’s the best place to get a pint close to the stadium? Don’t worry, asking for two different people :P

The easiest place to get a pint is Whites at the top of the hill next to the ground.

Parking is usually ok on Dens road just below the stadium.

With Donnelly on the bench, I assume Campbell will drop a bit deeper instead.

Almost time to get the bacon on for the rolls.
