At least we've a decent ko time, the other 2 televised games are 12.30pm ko's. Though prefer Saturday games.

Shafted by the tv beaks again.Going to be interesting to see what the attendance is gonna be for this.Hopefully any tv money we get from this will cover the overheads which will undoubtably arise from this decision.Not impressed!!!.

Don't think we get any of the tv money, just the gate split between us and TNS, plus they'll get 4K travelling expenses. Iirc we'll also get over 8k in prize money too for reaching the last 8, and it'll increase again if we progress further.

Here it is, was in an article last week:
A club travelling to another country will receive a travel allowance of £4,000, while fourth round losers are guaranteed £5,750. If either Linfield or Crusaders progress to the last eight the prizemoney will increase to at least £8,250.
There will be no television payments while gate money is shared equally following the standard 10 per cent deduction from the home club for matchday costs.

It all goes to the SPFL, then they hand us back some pocket money in the guise of prize money. Same goes for the play offs at the end of the season, in fact I think they get a percentage of the gate money in the play off final too.

Hey I can record the game on Alba where I wont understand the commentary or I can record the game on S4C when I wont understand the commentary.

Think I'll just have to bite the bullet and go to the game.

Shafted again for TV... At least we're at home this time so it shouldn't be too much of a barrier to most fans, unlike the Belfast trip. Shite too that we're not getting anything extra by having it televised (in fact, we're probably making a loss).

If you're watching it at home live then S4C have a red button option for English commentary, brilliant laugh with how clueless and bias they were during the Alloa game. Referred to Bala Town as 'we', screaming for penalties and red cards, even said Alloa were in the premiership last season!

Wait until Danny Mullen "wins" a penalty against TNS, then. I'll be praying for all the sheep in Wales that night.

If it is anything like the twitter and press stuff I've read about TNS beating Forfar it should be good, they reckon because they've beaten Forfar they can beat any SPFL team and must be favourites to win the Irn Bru cup now.
