Ek V Celtic

Recommended Posts

Can't play at K Park. New Douglas Park booked up. Wev are v away so it could be played at Firhill with some welcome ££ for us.

 

Good idea?

 

Not sure our pitch could take two games in such a short timespan Tho' it's going to have to later in the month.

I think Hamilton know they will lose a few seats and have there park damaged by flares and have made up this excuse about being fully booked. But what KNQBS the SFA are for just assuming.

Indeed. Absolute embarrassment.

What are the other options? Motherwell are at home that weekend, as are The Rangers, not that that would ever happen. Celtic park wouldn't be allowed, surely? Hampden? Firhill? Cumbernauld?

It should perhaps be emphasised that virtually every club would be delighted to host EK, but by the same token almost every potential host club would not wish the contaminants who follow Glasgow C into their ground for the already stated reasons of almost certain ground damage, the use of pyrotechnics, ignorant chanting, moronic banners and self righteous indignation.

I've missed why they can't play at K Park.

 

Surely, seen as this scenario was always a potential occurrence, the SFA should be determining where clubs play all of their games as they seem to see themselves as the voice who must be obeyed...

 

"You might draw Celtic at some point so you need to play all of your home ties at Hampden."

Ek's first choice themselves was to play at home.Just because they are a wee diddy team I don't think folk should be feeing sorry for them and their 'big day out' and thinking the money would set them up for life. folk calling for the game to be at Parkhead and Hampden are mental, the money for any spfl club would be huge, if we drew Celtic could we just opt to move it to Hampden to get more money? Did Stranraer do this? nope? no bloody chance! If the wee diddy teams ground aint big enough or safe enought then they shouldn't be in the competition full stop.

Maxi said we have offered Firhill as a venue and are happy to help out where possible.I think it'll probs be shifted to Broadwood though.

I heard Broadwood mentioned before they beat LTHV. I believe the Kean brothers, who are involved in EK, also have some interest in Clyde.

The benefit of Celtic playing this particular tie at Firhill is that at least we don't have to look at them.

James used to play for them

I think we should offer Firhill to another Thistle. Just saying....

EK Thistle are a junior club, nothing to do with EKFC

Do the 2 clubs share a ground?

No, no connection at all. Thistle play at the Show Park in the Village, EK play at K Park in Calderglen park. EK are trying to build a bigger ground at Langlands but can't get planning permission
