    European Super Cup

    I see that Belfast has been awarded the hosting of the European Super Cup. This of course was played in Monaco for years but recently it's been played out in Cardiff and Prague. Now Windsor Park is getting it, is this not something that Hibs/Edinburgh should target?

    Would it in normal circumstances be played there? Only holds about 18000 I think.

    The Super Cup doesnít seem to be anywhere near as big a deal as the champions league and europa league. I was in Prague when it was played there in 2013, and there was barely any indication that the match was being played in the city. We had hoped there would be fan zones, but all there was was a wee UEFA information kiosk.

    itís always been a nothing match as far as Iím concerned. A bit like claiming the community shield as a major trophy.

    Nothing wrong with that. At least they won it. It's the league ones I don't get.

    Aberdeen's star will be for their European Cup Winners' Cup win. This was viewed as a major trophy at the time, not as important as the European Cup but at least on a par with the UEFA Cup.

    The Super Cup has always been viewed more as a glamour friendly and in the earlier days was almost pre-season IIRC. I don't think anyone adds stars above their badge for it.

    They have 2 stars. One for each trophy.

    Ah OK. I didn't realise that.

    Had it been Hibs I don't know how I'd feel about that.

    Will Aberdeen be the only Scottish club to ever win that Trophy?

    Not been in Monaco since 2012, agree it would be great to see it at Hibs.

    They tend to take it around the smaller, more obscure stadia now so would be Tynecastle and not Easter Road if it came to Edinburgh

    The 19k capacity at the PBS would be small enough to make it eligible, but the pitch is too small to comply with UEFA requirements.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    So, small but too small.
