Hope Aberdeen get pumped today. How they've managed to do so well this season can only be put down to the shocking standard of football in this country. Massively overrated team. I fancy Utd to win the cup regardless of who they play in the final.

Goes without saying but McInnes really has done a great job with Dons. A good mix of youth and experience there.

Harris, Stanton & Forster are equally as good as Dons young players, difference being Dons older heads are miles better than ours.

Hopefully Terry can bring a few older experienced players in and push on next season. Aberdeen are the benchmark on how quickly it can be done.

I wouldn't go as far as 'bleating' - I made a remark that very few can argue with. The majority of my posts have a positive outlook on Hibs' woes, I was just stating a fact. I don't see what my post takes away from my support of my club. I was just stating how impressed I was in comparison to what I'm used to considering my knowledge of what our own fan base is capable of.

I appreciate that this match isn't about Hibs, of course, but I usually relate most things football to my own club. I suppose this isn't the time nor the place!

Read my threads mate, I have nothing but a realistically optimistic attitude in regards to our club. To be fair, there's been a LOT of moaning and groaning of late, but if my paltry contribution to that (if it is) is worthy of persecution alongside some of the more ridiculous, greetin' faced basin ****ters that've been roaming the boards of late then I'm afraid the tide has now turned and it's now more of a witch-hunt than a pessimism epidemic.

Well done to St Johnstone - really chuffed for them considering they've never been to a Scottish Cup final. I always want them to win if Hibs don't because they've had good teams and have done extremely well given their resources and have never won a trophy. So many semi finals and just never got there.

I'm especially pleased for David Wotherspoon. I read yesterday that his departure from Hibs was solidified by his second omission from a final squad, so I'm really pleased for him to finally achieve this (touch wood) with his boyhood club.

Less than when United played County?

Apparently 47,000 were at that game. I would say that the attendance for the final this year will be considerably less than that.

Would love to support a team with a leader like Steven Gerard and unity like Liverpool. Amazing.

In all seriousness, it's incredible to see a club have that. Their ultimate player who knows EXACTLY what the club means. It's incredible to see that. I'm no Liverpool fan, but I want them to win it - they're not on financial steroids, their captain is a colossus, and they play the most beautiful football in the country.

Suarez was cheap, as was Coutinho, Henderson, Sturridge, Mignolet etc. They've spent quite a lot for a team thats not even been in the champions league the past few years.

Every club at the top end of the Premier League has an influential captain. Gerrard's scored a few penalties, big deal.

Close between them, Man City, Southampton and Hearts TBH.

Perhaps I'm not privy but I would've thought they'd have nowhere near the money Man City and Chelsea have. Their fan base has been built over decades of success, not some billionaire's turning coal to gold. Maybe I'm misinformed, but seeing Gerrard react to victory like that was really touching and inspiring.

He's a product of their academy, a local lad who grew up a fan and he's their main man who looks to be leading his team to their first league championship in a generation.

What an absolutely incrediable leader Steven Gerrard is. He has so much passion and is a born leader. Nobody deserves the title more than him.

I don't think anyone at the start of the year outside of Liverpool would have expected them to be top of the table at this point of the season. I must confess that I called them as contenders in January but they've restored a little bit of my faith in English football that a team with good youngsters, a good manager and a great support have propelled themselves to the top of the league. Would hate Man City or Chelsea to win it, fingers crossed for Liverpool.

Well done to Brendan Rogers.

What a game the semi final has been.

5-3 Hull but Sheffield United more than played their part in a cracking game.

I would love the team I support (Hibernian FC) to have a leader like Steven Gerard and unity like Liverpool.

One can only dream.

I really hope Liverpool go on to be champions, in this of all years. However, Chelsea look to have a relatively easy run-in. Their remaining fixtures are at home to Sunderland & Norwich and away to Cardiff & Liverpool. They won ugly, yet again, at Swansea today. So the Liverpool v Chelsea game is a real must win for Liverpool. I would be very disappointed if Chelsea were to steal it from under Liverpool's nose now.

It just highlights what can be achieved if everyone is together and getting behind a team rather than boooo boooo all the time

People need to think about what they're saying when considering the moral high ground.
A fan base "built over decades of success" means one full of glory hunters who collectively skew things just as much as the individuals who do so at nouveau riche clubs. One is every bit as "fake " as the other as they are both boosted by "outside" influences.

The fans of teams like Everton and City have suffered big time because their rivals have outmuscled them financially. People can say that some clubs deserve extra fans and admirers because they have certain qualities but the bottom line is that they are propped up by people who want to see some glory and don't really care where it is. When you listen to phone-ins, the average united or Liverpool fan is either some Irish guy or a guy called Tahir from Kent who says "innit" after every sentence.

It's got to the point where the only way anyone else can ever challenge is through a large injection of cash because of the imbalance created by these "big" clubs. I really hope City win the league and it's because their fans probably deserve it more than any other in contention. They've had to suffer years of playing second fiddle to clubs who's similar local fan base has been boosted by people who have never even been to the City.

The sheer weight of the amount of "outsiders" who want to jump on the big club bandwagon is every bit as damaging as the sheik who wants to instantly create another force to challenge for honours. At least the sheiks and oligarch types are genuine. As a fan of a smaller club in the grand scheme of things I find it laughable when any of these typical fans refer to United or Liverpool as "we" and act like they are part of some close knit, local collective that deserves their emotional investment.

Maybe if they pissed off to their local club and invested in them then other teams wouldn't need to go to such extreme lengths to simply compete.

I agree with much of what you say but I think you have been a bit unfair singling out Man Utd & Liverpool. The following is quoted directly from a book written by a Chelsea FC fan about his club. "Today's Chelsea - the place as well as the team - has been transformed by selfish capitalism and the mass media. Great swathes of property in the area have been bought by foreigners & corporations, very few of the innumerable shops are owned by British Companies, and the coffee shops & restaurants are awash with rich foreigners. As for the team, Roman Abramovich its owner, was enabled by globalisation & free market economics to remove his huge financial stake in Russian natural resources from the country of its origin & convert it into international ready cash. With it he bought Chelsea FC, installed a Portuguese manager who, at astronomical expense, set about assembling a largely foreign team of players. The authenticity once conferred upon me by supporting Chelsea has been greatly diluted. I no longer have any feeling that I am backing a team of players who were born in my country & represent my area. So enormous has been the investment in the team that they hardly ever lose. Unless they play outstandingly, it gives me little pleasure when they win because winning seems inevitable."
