22,410 was the total attendance at the 2012/13 Scottish Cup semifinal Hibs v Falkirk. Will we better that figure this time around or, because we are only Scottish Championship level and have played Falkirk 3 times already this season, have a smaller crowd?

We are also due to play Falkirk again on 2 May 2015, the final game of the season.

I think some fans will hold back and see if we make the final again before travelling across to Hampden and daring to believe again.

Think we took around 15,000 to that game. I would hope we could take that again. I couldn't care less personally if we'd played Falkirk 20 times this season. Its a cup semi at Hampden. Hopefully poeple will see it as another game to boost their loyalty points in the hope we get to the final :greengrin

Wonder if the "not going back until Petrie is gone" crew will stay strong, especially if we make the final.

I've just google searched for other possible neutral football grounds where this fixture could be played in a near capacity stadium if we were to expect a similar attendance as last time. I was surprised to find that apart from Celtic Pk and Ibrox [which are as big if not bigger than Hampden], no other football ground would be large enough.

I think you're posting on the wrong thread. See the one about glory hunting etc, done to death.

I reckon the crowd we take through will be similar to the previous semi against Falkirk. I (lapsed ST holder,)- will be there, as will probably around eight of my pals, none of whom go regularly anymore.

Anyway, are we not " all for goals and GLORY" or does that no longer count as a Hibs song:greengrin

All Scottish cup semi finals are played at Hampden, regardless of the size of the potential support.

I would be Dissapointment if we didn't take a bigger support this time as overall it's a better team playing well and Falkirk have shown they will make a game of it so has makings of a good game and some of our creative midfield players will relish the open spaces and Boyles pace could be well utilise at some point in the game if Coaching staff can get him to play to his strength s and not let a rush of blood to the head get to him .

We might need to play them that many times before we beat them.

We have lost several thousand off the Hibs gate due to the last few seasons football especially last years abject effort. Some may indeed be principalled enough to be staying away until Petrie has gone. Not something that bothers me but it's their choice.(Indeed why is he still there? Surely he's had a long enough transitional period now to get Dempster up to speed)

Games like this semi final and hopeully a final is a chance to win a few back.

Instead of sarky swipes at those that stayed away we should be encouraging as many as possible to get along to the game.

Tynecastle will be fine when they get that new stand built.

Not so sure, I always had my suspicions that the hotel complex and all the other development planned would end up getting bigger at the expense of the stand, I guess time will tell - I do think the Robertson lounge could easily accommodate another couple of calor gas bottles and maybe a barbecue.

It wasn't a sarky swipe, it was a genuine wondering. A few of my mates are in that particular group, some are coming to the semi, some aren't. Most of my lapsed mates are in the "totally scunnered after the last few years" group and don't care if Petrie is there or not.

For what it's worth, I think there will be a very similar Hibs support to 2 years ago.

Thought it was more like 17/18,000 as Falkirk crowd was pretty poor - maybe 15,000 after half time though :greengrin

Potentially another 4 times against the Bairns this season.

No. This will probably not be decided until after the replay between celtic and dundee Utd this Wednesday.

My opinion is that if celtic win the replay they will play the Sunday as they have a game on the Wednesday midweek before the semi so they will want an extra days rest.

This all depends on what the TV bosses say though.

Yeah Falkirk took under 4500 to that match which was a surprise. However I'd expect a similar size attendance from us with a little more Falkirk fans this time.

The bbq idea was one that got the go ahead, but unfortunately on the day of the first bbq there was a problem with the woman's toilets above the John Robertson lounge and the bbq ended up being doused by pish leaking from above. It was a shame really as just before that a new calor gas heater had just been unveiled.

It's a bit of a grey area tbh, I heard some people say it had been built but they'd just modelled it on an early 20th century death trap. What I will say is that the last time I passed there was an old jakey lying outside the stand sleeping in a pool of his own pish. I'm presuming he was there because the new hotel was full, so it must be doing ok.

Heard the barbecue might still be a goer if someone like fatty foulkes can find some Lithuanian pensioners to pay for it like before

After their investment in Romanovs football journey at the wongadome there might be enough left for them to build a statue of him?, they owe it to him - or is it to themselves? I can never remember now.

If we play first, then expect c 20k. If we play Sun and we know it's not Celtic in the final then expect a few more thousand Hibbies at the Semi.

Think we took 17,000 to the game last time, could be as high again. The points been made that if Dundee United pull off an unlikely result on Wednesday it could add a good few thousand to that, it would probably add a couple of thousand onto the Falkirk support too. Everybody is gonna think they have a shot if Celtic get bumped.

That was a great semifinal game last time against Falkirk. The absolute definition of a game of two halves. I think this time around it will be another thriller with the same result.

If the Hibs support is significantly greater than last time around I think it would be a clear indication from the fans that they are right behind Leanne, Stubbsy and the team.

Thinking back to the Hibs team that day, likely only to be only 2 starters from that day, next month.
Team was
Williams
Clancy McPake Hanlon McGivern
Cairney Robertson Claros Thomson
Harris Griffiths

Think Robbo got hooked around 30 mins or so, and Cairney didnt last too much longer
Fenlons subs worked, but maybe he didn't play the right team at KO
