Given that all the loanees were cup tied , Breen out sick and Allan out long term that leaves Todorov and five or six 16:17 year olds. It doesnt leave much choice !

Dundee would have fielded a team that would have consisted of some fringe players etc, I’m sure they would also have loan players who were not clear play

Although it’s totally irrelevant I think we had a strong line up and had a reasonable chance should the game have gone ahead

It was a no brainer that James McPake would opt to play the strongest side available to him.

The Pars were playing his old team and he had a point to make. There were no loanees available, cutting his options with such a small squad, and the match was on TV; the last thing he would want would be a very public hammering from the team that sacked him.

And for the umpteenth time, I shake my head when the subject of the "Diddy Cup" comes up. At our current level, this is our only realistic hope of winning a national cup. And as a League One team, it would normally be considered quite an achievement to pick up this trophy ahead of all the clubs in the Championship.

This is about perspective. If you are a Pars supporter, you haven`t had a lot to cheer about these past 50 years. Yes, there have been the intermittent lower league titles, but it`s fair to say that DAFC is not a comfortable destination for the glory hunter.

The collection of oldies on here who have distant memories of the so-called "Glory Days" is dwindling with the passing of time. I witnessed about half of those days, seeing my first Pars game in 1965. But I only saw us win the Scottish Cup once and I was 13 years old at the time.

Please don`t use the term "Diddy Cup". All you are doing is attempting to diminish the achievements of our team and insulting fellow Pars fans who only wish their team success in everything they compete in.

It does raise the question as to whether you really are a Pars fan at all, or just another glory hunter who took a wrong turn on his way to Glasgow...

I don`t think it matters what the game means. The objective should be to go out and try to win every game. It should be the culture within the club and sends the right message. We have a good squad of players who will win this league for us so why not try and win this cup too.

Ask the players and they will tell you if it is a diddy cup or not. I suspect you will get the answer that they want to win this cup. As any player does as winning a cup is something to treasure. Just ask the lads that won the Under 18 diddy cup.

Players will have different names for it, see below for what a lower league player called it.

For me? Diddy cup. Its got B teams, the vast, vast, vast majority of teams quite rightly don`t take it seriously and bang out reserve and youth sides, and the attendances speak for themselves.


B teams FFS. I`d be far happier if they just scraped it.

Well right now we can`t scrap it. It`s lowest on the list of priorities but I just want to see us win every game .

Hello Grant from the current Kilmarnock manager. Not everyone thinks alike. Winning a trophy for players who are never likely to win anything is important whether we like it or not.

How many of us have seen us win a cup (except the Fife cup!)??? I’ve saw league wins but never a cup win. We’re not going to win the Scottish or league cup anytime soon so I’d love us to win this. Diddy cup??? Maybe it can be called that but we are a diddy club after all who deserve to be playing in it these days!!!

A ‘national cup’ would not exclude clubs in the top flight. It’s a trophy we’re competing for though and it’s a trophy that McPake and a few players have stated that we want to win. We’re taking it seriously. But it’s definitely not a national cup. Any competition that includes B teams rather than the top teams in the country cannot and will not be considered a national cup competition.

I agree with the majority of your post. We should take this seriously and have stated that it’s our intention to do so. But we will only prioritise it as long as it doesn’t interfere with/adversely impact our higher priorities. In terms of prioritising competitions, the league comes first, then Scottish cup, then league cup (although we’re now out), then it would be the challenge cup.

It can’t be hard to understand why the competition is classed as the ‘diddy cup’ given the inclusion of B teams and exclusion of top flight teams. Quite rightly, it has never and will never be regarded as a national/major trophy. But that doesn’t mean a third tier team should disregard it as irrelevant. We’ve been in this competition for 15 out of the last 16 seasons for a reason.

If the Pars won the Scottish Cup, or even the League Cup, and got relegated, it would be a successful season.

If we win fail to get promoted but win the Challenge Cup, it will be absolutely no consolation.

"This is about perspective. If you are a Pars supporter, you haven`t had a lot to cheer about these past 50 years. Yes, there have been the intermittent lower league titles, but it`s fair to say that DAFC is not a comfortable destination for the glory hunter."

And from the same post:

"It does raise the question as to whether you really are a Pars fan at all, or just another glory hunter who took a wrong turn on his way to Glasgow..."

So, no contradiction there...

That last line is just plainly insulting, and insulting towards people who routinely go to watch their team when they can. For some, that will mean the odd home game here and there, for others it will be most games, home and away.

You are entitled to your view on how credible or worthwhile this competition is but making such an insulting comment towards people who do not share your view seems quite wrong to me.

Absolutely no contradiction, Socks.

And if you care to read my second last paragraph, you might understand the context of my final paragraph... and the fact that it was an attempt at humour rather than an insult. Clearly, my joke fell flat on you.

Well, clearly it did. Even after another read and specifically taking unto account the second-last paragraph (which I happen to think is also rubbish), I still don`t see any humour there. It still reads as quite an insulting comment, but maybe that`s just me.

If people used the term (or generally said they weren`t bothered) only when their side won, then you would have a valid reason for saying it was attempting to diminish whatever achievements. However, if the same people shrug and say `aye, whatever` when we get knocked out, then logically your argument doesn`t work.

If we each just want to have our own view, from opposite sides of the argument, without feeling that others want to sneer at that view, then I think we agree on that.

I couldn`t really care if fans want to go to these games & cheer the team on. Fair enough. I`m in the "not arsed if we win or lose" camp - although I understand it`s always good to win a game, I just don`t get the same buzz that a league or major cup win brings. Same goes for a challenge cup defeat - I just don`t care. I can`t remember if I have ever been to any challenge cup game.

Ozpars` post fair drags on a bit but I eventually got through it & the last paragraph is probably aimed at fans like myself, personally I couldn`t care what he thinks. It`s my opinion that he is wrong.

It`s clearly not completely binary. I want the Pars to win every game and I`m happy whenever we win. However, I`d enjoy, for example, a win at The Falkirk Stadium in April which seals promotion more than I would a victory in a Tuesday night Challenge Cup match at Dens.

Similarly, I`d look forward to both getting a takeaway curry and going on a date with Margot Robbie. I`d just look forward to one slightly more than the other...

You are bound to get one or two players who will say this. Especially in teams that have no chance of winning it.

I would like to see a poll from all the players and managers involved.

These numbers don`t make good reading. It certainly not worthwhile for these clubs on gate money alone. Do the SPFL put up a substantial amount of prize money? How is it structured?

Am I right in thinking that lower league clubs are not allowed to opt out of this competition? It would be interesting to see how many would take part if it was voluntary.

There are only three significant competitions - League, Scottish Cup and (to a lesser extent perhaps) League Cup.

The attendances at peripheral trophy games speak for themselves.

QP Vs Hamilton crowd was boosted by the fact the match was played at Hampden. QP fans have been on their travels this season with the redevelopment of lesser Hampden.

From their website:-

`Queen’s Park’s ‘Back to the Future’ fixture with Hamilton Accies at the National Stadium at Hampden ran smoother than a DeLorean at 88 miles per hour with the Black and White Hoops enjoying a 4-0 success over Hamilton Academical.

A bumper 3,231 crowd including over 1,000 special guests from local schools and community groups, as well as club heroes Tony Quinn and David Galt, were in place before kick-off with the Spiders shooting towards the Aitkenhead Road of the ground.`

The Hamilton game was played at Hampden.

The bulk of QP`s "home" games this season have been played at Ochilview, so if they are managing to get several hundred to trek there regularly they`re not doing too badly.

Don`t forget, for cup games, unlike league games, the "crowd" doesn`t include people who weren`t there.

Interesting to hear ex-Dundee player Dave Mackay say on COWS that in his experience matches have been played at Dens when the pitch was in worse condition than it was on Tuesday.

I am still at a loss as to why folk want to dismiss as unimportant this tournament, when clearly it was designed specifically to exclude the premier league teams and give those in the lower leagues an opportunity for silverware.

Looking at the seven winners of the trophy in the past ten years, I think it is significant that five of them are currently playing in the premier league. This suggests to me that, no matter how humble the trophy might be in comparison to others, approaching it with a winning mentality can be a precursor to greater success.

I agree with those who say the introduction of B teams was not a great idea, but I support the principle of having teams from Ireland, Ulster, Wales and England taking part. It adds a different dimension; but they need to be less scattergun in who they choose from England.

Finally, I don`t object to folk having a go at me for a comment that they perceive to be abusive. I have already explained that it was meant to be in jest and you accept that or you don`t.

The problem as always with message boards is that the written word can easily be misinterpreted. Rest assured, I would never write anything on here that I wouldn`t be prepared to say directly to you were we in the same room.

Ask yourself the same question the next time you plan to insult someone.

The list of former winners also includes Stenhousemuir Stranraer Falkirk Airdrie Hamilton and Alloa, suggesting it could also be a precursor to utter mediocrity.

My favourite Challenge Cup game happened at Easter Road and involved our wee neighbours.

Ep. 6 of East End Tales is out now with AUSTIN McCANN! Reminisce with us about the big Fife derby in 2011, otherwise known as BMMMH day!

It baffles me why some are so absolutely determined to belittle it at every opportunity.

I think its probably mostly down to our lowly position and a desire not to be distracted from the main aim of promotion rather than not recognising it as a reasonable and desirable achievement for a club outside the top division.

The fife cup is only half a dozen local teams. I cant believe you used that as a comparison.

Maybe the SPFL should persuade UEFA to inaugurate a European Diddy Cup open to the winners of national Diddy Cup competitions throughout the continent. The prospect of an away trip to some previously unvisited foreign Diddy club would surely spike the interest of fans in their domestic Diddy Cups. If the European Diddy Cup was a success it could be expanded to become a Diddy Champions` League which would give the fans the opportunity to go on even more trips to foreign Diddy clubs by having a group stage prior to the knockout rounds.

So would the representative for the Scottish diddy team try to lose to be made a real diddy or would there be some kudos in winning the European diddy cup.

Actually not sure if anyone here remembers one of the greatest sendings off in the Fife Cup with John Holt who seemed to take loss of his senses in a game against Cowdenbeath many many years ago.

"The list of former winners also includes Stenhousemuir Stranraer Falkirk Airdrie Hamilton and Alloa, suggesting it could also be a precursor to utter mediocrity."

For the smaller part time clubs winning is a big deal.

Alloa, for example, had never progressed past the 1/4 final of the Scottish Cup in 120 odd years existence until they reached to final of the Challenge Cup 1999/2000........ having played all matches away from home.

For the referee, Jim McCluskey, it was his last appointment before retiring - he said it was the most satisfying game he`d handled at any level - both teams playing attacking football with only 2 yellow cards in 120 minutes play before going to penalties.

Too late, such a tournament already exists- the Fenix Tournament. FC United of Manchester are the inaugural Champions

To be honest, I would probably be as interested in that as the Champions League, which is another Mickey Mouse competition

I was merely countering Ozpars post VEE. I`ve made my thoughts abundantly clear on this earlier in the thread
