 Challenge cup
Topic Originator: PARrot  
Date:   Mon 9 Jan 10:32

If we get through tomorrow we could get a winnable semi and with a bit of luck meet the holders Raith, in the final.

Now that would be tasty whether you think it is a diddy cup or not. A cup final v Raith = full house.

The semis are already drawn if we win we get Raith or Queens Park

We have to win the First Division Title, nothing more, nothing less. Forget this useless competition.

Not particularly bothered tbh.

I`m far more concerned with not losing any first team players to injury than I am about getting through, a final in Airdrie against Raith? Not really the priority.

The draw has already been made for the semis.Winner of our tie plays Queens Park or Raith so we can`t play them in the final.

Hamilton,Clyde, QOTS or Kelty will be in the final.

Fancy our chances against any of them. Just need to get by Dundee.

Im confident we will win the league so it would be great to get the double.

Don’t understand this, not losing any key players to injury by playing in this competition. Surely you don’t want any key players to get injured in any game. Who’s to say for example Bene doesn’t play tomorrow night, but gets injured on Saturday in the 1st minute. Doesn’t really make much difference. Don’t want any injuries, ever, but they can happen in any game!

Players get injured in training as well. Isn`t that what happened to O`Hara and Allan? Any sort of physical activity is a lottery really.

Keeping the momentum going even in a Diddy cup competition will only help us in our league campaign.
Maybe in your eyes, we should just not even bother turning up?

The argument for resting important players is not that it protects them completely from injury, but that it prevents adding extra, unnecessary risk. The fact that injuries also occur in league games and in training does not detract from that at all.

I think most clubs with enough players to do so will use these games to give game time to players lacking in that. If you can do that, while simultaneously reducing the risk of injury to some of the players who will start on Saturday if fit, it would seem logical to do so. As an example, it would seem odd if Todorov didn`t start the game, assuming he won`t on Saturday. If McCann is still getting back to fitness, it might not be sensible to play him if the manager intends to start him on Saturday. We probably don`t have enough players available to make huge changes, but there are good arguments for not playing your absolute strongest team.

I would imagine when we have a midweek game we reduce the intensity and possibly the frequency of training so I doubt the extra match increases the risk much, if at all.

I believe statistically you are 12 times more likely to be injured in a match versus training.

This report confirms parathletic`s 12x statement.

I don`t want any players to be injured correct. However the priority is absolutely the league, having them injured in this tournament would be annoying.

I totally get what Grants saying re potential injuries.

The flip side to that is someone like McCann for example bagging a hat trick and the confidence that would bring. Even pumping Arbroath away last round must have gave the whole squad a lift.

With so few reserve games it also gives someone like Little some game time and O`Hara the chance of competitive action outside the league campaign.

Dundee seem to have a tougher challenge than us to gain promotion this season and will likely play a team of reserves against the Pars.

There could be an opportunity here. While the league obviously is the main game for us, wouldn`t it be wonderful if the Pars picked up two trophies this season?
