Post by: Balloon Boy on August 14, 2019, 12:52:26

Really hope its on a Saturday. From a neutral's perspective I think its probably the most attractive fixture so its bound to be some daft kickoff time on TV.

The Racecourse ground is very nice, been once before. If you're into wacky hipster new build stands this is the ground for you!

OK guilty. I had to google Wrexham find out where it is. Definitely up for this game depending on final KO time.

Mickey mouse cup or not - competitive away fixture in Europe, so extra effort to attend.

You'd think S4C would pick this one for live coverage.
I'm sure they show games at 5 on Saturdays or sunday afternoons.

5pm KO would be perfect, allow more time to get there on Sat and overnight party and up the road Sunday. Can't wait.

Hoping we beat them or Talbot are probably going to have to beat Cardiff or Swansea to stop Ayrshire becoming part of Wales.

I think the fixture timing is perfect and a good manager statement on the official website about the game and confirming no request for a postponement.

Allows time for the fans to travel and return if appropriate, no doubt a number will be staying overnight for a party regardless of the result.

Personally I couldn't care less about this tournament, happy to get this game out of the way without any disruption to our league games.

I'd love for us to do well in this tournament. I remember the first two finals of the B&Q cup and how great it was to see us take big crowds to both. Would love to do it all again, and finally win a piece of 'national' silverware. If only to stop the Killie fans and their WFAANW bantz

I hear you, but personally think Wrexham game does provide something different from the norm, so makes it a little more interesting.

Would be nice, but probably not get past Wrexham, let's hope so.

Kelly, doohan and harvie in under 21s quite correctly  - bit confused why mccowan has been ignored other than he is not an old firm loanee  - he has played more championship games than kelly

Looking forward to two nights in Chester, a cup game where its not exactly going to be Talbot levels of despair if we lose, and a whole load of English & Welsh people checking out what the badge on your chest is all about and why you're here (because lets face it, most of Chester or Wrexham won't have a scooby about this competition)


Dewch ar Ayr!

I was surprised to see that Wrexham had nearly 6,000 at the weekend. Didn't appreciate that they were that size of club. Hopefully we'll see a big crowd on Saturday, though it'll be their third home game in a week,so a few might stay at home. I wonder how many fans we'll take? 300 maybe?

over 500 at Thistle and I know a few extra planning to make the trip, so maybe about the same at Wrexham.

I've seen one Wrexham fan refer to this as the "Scottish choccy woccy thingy"  ;D

Hate this tournament, glad it's out of the way.
Incredible support though.

Read the game via a welsh newpaper text site. The paper was in awe that 421 Ayr fans made the trip.
Silly cup anyway

I'll have it. Going to Turkey on Thursday so if you hang on to it I'll get it from you at the Inverness game on October 5th.

Hi all Wrexham fan here,I think the result yesterday didn't seem to matter much to most fans of both sides but I enjoyed it, you were the better footballing side but we probably had the best chances.however the reason I came on was to salute you're magnificent fans, they were loud and proud all game, a credit to you're club. Met a few in spoons before the game all good lads. Good luck for the rest of the season

Well that was extra special, still recovering now. Was a delight to mingle with the home fans afterwards and had a great laugh.

Good thing is Dunfermline and Morton are out so no league games will be rescheduled for this, with only Inverness away potentially being midweek if they get to the final.
