Scottish Championship Hot Potato 2023-2024


Recommended Posts

Noticed the Hot Potato post in HL recently, and decided to check on the Championship Hot Potato. Rules, as always, the team losing the first game day match by the most is awarded the Hot Potato…it then goes to the loser of each subsequent match featuring the holder.

On that basis, the Initial Holder of the Championship Hot Potato, 2023-2024, is Arbroath for their loss by 4 to Dundee Utd,

Arbroath retain the Potato in matchday 2, losing to Queen’s Park,

Arbroath then retain the Potato in the matchday 11 game played the next weekend against, Queen’s Park,

Morton capture the prized Spud in matchday 3, losing to Arbroath,

Morton retain the Potato in matchday 4 against Partick,

Morton manage to hold it again for matchday 5 despite Dundee Utd’s best effort,

Morton hold it a fourth time losing to the Pars in matchday 6,

Morton make it five in matchday 7, losing to Airdrie,

Morton get to six by drawing Queen’s Park in matchday 8,

Morton skip matchday 9, retaining the Potato,

Ayr are awarded the Potato in matchday 10 with a loss to Morton,

Ayr keep the Spud, drawing Partick in matchday 11,

Ayr keep rolling and draw Queen’s Park in matchday 12 to retain the Tattie,

And, with a loss to ICT in matchday 13, Ayr are the current Hot Potato holders of the Scottish Championship!

 

With the exciting Ayr v Arbroath game for matchday 14, can we see a boomerang spud?

Bump -

From what I can gather..

Ayr lose to Dundee Utd and continue to hold the spud

Ayr finally relinquish their grasp on the tattie by beating Airdrie

Airdrie retain after a goalless draw with Morton

Queens Park take the spud with a defeat to Airdire at Hampden

QP lose to Partick to keep the spud

Dunfermline are the new holders after defeat at the hands of QP

Valiant effort to pass the potato to the league favorite's but a 0-0 draw see's the Pars retain possession.

0-5 defeat at home to Morton Pars retain again

Home draw with Arbroath, Pars hold the potato for the 4th game in a row.

 

Think that's right however I didn't spend too much time looking into it

Good luck to the red wine sluggers to make sure the Pars retain this again this weekend.

I had completely lost track of this with the trip planning and everything else…thanks for the reminder…looking over your ciphering, it looks like you are spot on, with the Pars holding the tattie at the end of HP:MD23

This weeks Steaming Spud Bowl will be Patrick vs the Pars as the Pars go for five on the bounce in Hot Potato Match Day 24

So far this year:

Arborath hold for the first two weeks,

Morton retain it for seven weeks, one due to a postponed match,

Ayr then hold for six weeks, including a “missing week” due to postponements,

Airdrie get the spud for two weeks,

Queen’s Park get Kitchen Patrol for two weeks,

And now the Pars are on a serious run with four weeks of potato passion.

 

So we have just four teams who haven’t tasted the sweet flavor of the Spud of Doom this year, the top three and ICT. Can the Pars make it just three with a win this weekend?
