Tuesdays. A day early for shouting out the half time scores of the latest set of ties.
To be read out in the voice of the bloke who has that particular task each home game at Stark’s Park, Kirkcaldy.*

Click here for a reminder of what the full list of songs are. Deadline is Friday midnight. All being well, I’ll announce the results on Saturday morning at the same time as releasing the next 16 fixtures.
A fair number of the ties are still very much up for grabs, although my heart is heavy as I watch personal faves The Twilight Sad suffer at the hands of Pavement, although I knew it was the likely outcome. Looking likely too that some teams will depart from the scene despite scoring more goals than the eventual winner of Kanye West v SBTRKT. Would still prefer things that way than to have the draw seeded or rigged…..
Time, once more, for a banging half-time tune
*yup, they are one and the same.
