semi final v hibs on 31/10 (updated)


Smoked-Glass

Recommended Posts

Hibs will be 3 months into their season and have a premier league squad. We will be rusty, unfit and have championship quality throughout. Therefore 2 nil Hearts.

I am well past caring but have I got this right?  Hibs will have been playing competitive football for 3 months prior to this semifinal.  If we are in the championship, we will have had one competitive fixture.

I'm with you. So can anyone clarify : Hearts will start pre season training in about 3-4  weeks , ready for an early October league start date. All this confirmed by Scottish govt & SFA : or did I miss something ?

If we don't get reinstated to the prem then this should be the next fight we take up. 

 

How the hell could they say that in the spirit of the game this would be fair.

The semi final and final are a big part of the reason that lawell wants fans back in, celtic can’t afford not to have the 25% ticket money from these games. If they have as reported sold 50,000 season tickets this is money already banked, they are struggling for money

It has to be this way, there has to be a siege mentality now, turn Tynie into a fortress and make it intimidating, only Hearts matters now. 

 

Have you managed to find "Tynie" on a map yet?

This situation just shows what a farce Scottish football is and how blatantly obvious it is being random for the benefit of one team and one team only.

 

League season has to be called yet we can still play the cup Semi Finals in the next season. Clearly one club are desperate and arrogant as they want to rinse their fans for quadruple treble merchandise.other countries have finished their league season but in most cases punted the cup yet in Scotland we are the opposite.

 

What makes this a bigger farce is that players who have already been knocked out the competition are eligible to play in it because its being played in a new season. If that is not farcical, I don’t know what it. So Sheikh Mansoor comes along after deciding he loves Scottish football that much and buys Aberdeen. Gives them a 200m war chest and tells them to go And buy who they want. They buy the likes of Edouard, Morales, Hickey, Kent etc and they are allowed to compete in competition for last season in this season. Farce. I know we could benefit from it as well but players who are cup tied should not be allowed to play in competition. If they are playing it to a finish it finishes with players who were available last season or players who did not play in competition last season but have now signed for the club. 
 

Scottish football. The laughing stock of Europe

A bit harsh!  He's bought a season ticket, despite living in Wales.

Well according to Jackson and co we’re getting our membership revoked, so we shouldn’t have to worry about it.

Laughable really but I didn't expect anything better from the corrupt pricks at the SFA. Any other club I would want us to withdraw but Hibs are so pathetic that it will be beautiful when our unprepared and unfit squad destroys them.

The whole things an absolute farce and I've previously said I'd back the club to pull out of the competition. The likelihood is that the game will be played, the other way to look at it is that we have months to prepare for this 1 game. Hibs on the other hand have a premiership season to prepare for, and its not outwith the realms of reality that they have a poor start and face the prospect of a Semi final against Hearts that have had nothing to do for 3 months other than mainly focus on this game.

We start back on 3rd of August, we will have 3 Betfred cup ties on Oct 6,19,13th and league games on 17/24th so 5 games into our season after 3 months of training, and a few friendlies too. Unless we are reinstated, then who knows 🤷🏾‍♂️?!?!

You may find that Tynecastle will have a lot of new fans next season, the way that Hearts have been treated has struck a chord in the hearts of other fans, I am one of those. Looking forward to supporting the boys in maroon.

Semi final date isn't too bad but the final on the last sunday before Christmas... lets just forget about the Christmas shoppers travelling into Glasgow by car or train.

Not to mention a potential 2nd covid spike. What happens if one team has to call off the Semi or the Final at the last minute due to players testing positive...

 If it's Celtic that have players testing positive then the game will be awarded to Celtic, if it's any of the other 3 teams then the game will be awarded to Celtic. The bonus here for the GFA, if this occurs in our semi final there is a possibility we can then look forward to a final of Celtic V Celtic, finally a game that the GFA can look forward to and one with more sporting integrity than anyone could have hoped to achieve. Finally a game the officials would be able to referee without bias. 

 

To summarise, if it wasn't for Hearts I would be done with Scottish football, they don't even hide the corruption anymore, the whole thing is run by one club* for the benefit of one club*

 

*used to be two but one died in 2012

What was the point of actually announcing the dates without working out which games are on the particular days 🤷🏾‍♂️?

Robbie looking forward to the semi final. 

Only 2 weeks after season starts but will play a lot of friendlies before then.

Will be interesting to see who the opposition is.😀

It's a long way off but with the possibility of fans being able to attend surely Murrayfield would be the place to play for health and safety reasons alone never mind the common sense factor.

Think the broadcasters still have to pick the games.   Only reason I can think of.

Hearts beat Hibs.

 

It’s normal, it’s the natural order of things, it’s correct.

 

The docksiders will already be dreading another leathering from the establishment club.

Can the first match v Dundee be moved to the Friday if we have more than 3 players playing international football less than 48 hours earlier on the Wednesday night?

There is Europa league matches on Thursday 29th October, so no date will be decided until the group stages of the Europa league are confirmed. If either Celtic or Aberdeen make the group stages then we will be on the Saturday.

Don’t think you can call us the establishment club after what’s happened to us. It’s the establishment that’s stabbed us in the back.

And the more things are stacked in Hibs favour the more likely that is. And they know it.

 

To be honest I'm looking forward to it more going into it as the massive underdogs we will than if we'd got reconstruction or reinstatement.

Indeed, the only establishment club wears green, their fans don’t like being called it.

They try to disguise it by being neighbours with Seafield Sewage works but they fool no-one. 

 

Seafield Sewage works have complained about them lowering the tone of the area.

We will be match fit and fans won't be allowed to attend in any sort of numbers. 

 

They can stick it up their arse as far as I am concerned. 

 

It's all about the Mhanks. Nothing more  nothing less.

 

Exactly as long as they get their precious treble nothing else matters. Feck the lot of them.

Hearts are still, and always will be, the establishment club of Edinburgh and the Lothians; the true representatives of the city, the region and it's people. 

 

Scottish football wise, however, we've gone rogue. 😊

They're terrified of us, my friend. 

 

If it wasn't for that pesky semi final their rotten little lives would be complete. All the poor buggers wanted was a season without Hearts tormenting them. 

 

Nae luck, ya Lochend bawbags.

 

Hearts are coming to get ye.
