First tie is a cracker

 

The Buckie lot are in for a culture shock going to Auchinleck

 

Saw Huntly play there about five years ago with a full ground baying for blood.

Despite Talbot winning 4-3, the referee required a police escort off the pitch at full time.

Plus winners of 3 remaining ties between Hurlford v Stirling Albion Elgin v Bo'ness United and East Stirlingshire v Dunfermline.

 

Would love to see Dons drawn away to Brora as never been to game there. Same applies to Hurlford or Bo'ness United if they get through. Days out to Annan Berwick Spartans Stranraer or Queen of the South also appeal.

 

Edit: Should have said draw is 2pm tomorrow live on Sky.

A team desperately short of money (*M GBP I believe) gets a home tie. Lucky as I'm sure "them" v Raith will bring in more filthy lucre than Raith v "them"

 

Please note, I'm not crying conspiracy here......I'm damn sure a tie v a Premiership(?) team would have brought in more, it's just good timing, and a good shot at getting to the next round.

 

What with the game against the other arse-cheek coming up they may yet have enough money to survive another month.

Can't see there being more than 20k there.

 

Do not think you will be far wrong. Caley could not even manage 10,000 for their first ever final last year so cannot see them taking much more than they did last year to Parkhead. Even allowing for all the sub humans who support (from their armchair/local pub) the  Tims or Tribute Act that live in Falkirk suddenly supporting their local team they will not get much more than 10,000 either.

I reckon there will be at least 35000

 

Highland Council were meant to be making arrangements for tickets to be given to local schools and other kids groups and I'm sure I heard talk of arrangements with local bus companies to offer discounted travel

 

Megabuses and trains also on regular (not sunday) service along with many folk potentially making a weekend of it I'd say Inverness could muster up 15-18K (Ross County Managed approx 15K). Falkirk have no issues with transport and found 13k for their last final (against the evil hordes of Ibrox).

 

The Neutral and Glory Hunter element will also come out for this one.

The Missus and I will be going anyway ('Local' teams always get my backing)

 

I could be very wrong but using Caley's League cup final crowd as the yardstick is almost like using the dons support at the 2000 Scottish Cup semi final as a judgement on the support's potential.

6:05pm kick off on a sunday = 6500 dons fans

2:30pm kick off on a sunday = 7000 Caley Fans

See Caley Thistle players used their semi final win bonus to finance free coach travel and free under 14 tickets for the final.

24 coaches provided of which 18 are now sold out with 5 of the remaining almost sold out.

 

ticket sales currently sitting about 26000 (not including neutrals) - About 15000 Falkirk, 11000 Caley

 

Neutral section also down nearing sell out

I'm going, Inverness is my home and has been a long time. I'm happy to go make the numbers as it were. I know quite a few ict fans and would be chuffed for them if they do it and it would be great for the highlands also so it doesn't feel too much of a chore. One time deal though.
