Yes- definite big match nerves today. For me, it's a mixture of huge tension and a strong desire to get the game started so we can get stuck right in to that mob and hopefully/pray God, do the business.
Come on Hibs, let's do this....please!!!

Think how great it will feel at full time to have knocked Houston's pseudo jambo cloggers out.
Worth all the nerves!

I definitely feel worse today than I did before the Ross County & Celtic games.
I haven't been able to stop thinking about tonight since the game finished on Tuesday. I've hardly thought about the Cup Final.

Relatively relaxed at the moment, we didn't win on Tuesday but we showed clearly who the better side is. I think Falkirk know it too, hence they try all their dirty tricks.
If C. Thomson doesn't let his corrupt side surface tonight, then I feel we'll beat them. The team will be up for it, we just need to finally be more clinical. Stokes and Cummings both to score.

I'd maybe feel better if we hadn't been repeating this line for the last 2 seasons

Big nerves, are we going to the playoff final? Will i get a ticket for the cup final? Will we go up? Will we stay down? Will we win the cup? Plus the matches we've just been through. It's no easy this.

yes, I know...... we're victims of our own failure nearly every time......if we could avoid soft goals at one end, and be a bit more clinical at the other, we'd be a hell of a team.

Still, got to fancy JC or Stokes to deliver tonight, or anyone really, just score more than them please Hibs!

Part of me wants to turn the telly off and just do something else for the duration, like I did on Saturday. Until I started getting Betfair giving me updates.

Tension? Aye a bit. But anger in bucketloads :furious:. Don't think I've ever felt so angry about an opposing team and their dirty anti-fitba tricks for decades. It'll feel so good if we can pump these cheatin barstewards tonight and watch jambo Houston's heid explode like a Day of the Jackal watermelon. :flag:

Living in Fife and having to visit Falkirk office this week has added to the tension, they all know who my team are and they have taken great pleasure in winding me up after the first game. All "banter" thus far... and banter is key to me in "My" football life, I want us to win, I hope we win, I would love us to Win. If we dont then what we CANNOT do is turn our back on them, early on in the Season we looked a good team and we have slowly but surely stumbled, Why? well read all the other threads for that. Now is the time to support the players all the way. 2 cup finals in one season, when did that last happen? Joint top with Rangers early on in the season, and now all the banter of "Hibsing it"... I am a Hibee, I will always be a Hibee now Stubbs and Co... go out there and be the team we will talk about for years to come.... I have faith and if there is one thing I have seen from ALL our players this season is passion......Let that rule the pitch today and what will be, will be..... All i know is i will always be a Hibee

Tracks go by the ground as far as Grangemouth, but not passenger trains. I think you can see the ground from line between Polmont and Falkirk Grahamston, but I wouldn't say it passed the ground

Worst I've felt for a long time. It's like derby nerves. Mixture of it being a huge game, an entire other season in this pishy league at stake, a bizarrely deep rooted hatred for Falkirk that never existed two years ago, the thought of seeing smug Houston celebrating and the complete and utter injustice I'm still feeling from Tues. I want us to win so so much

Pretty much how I feel. Still raging from Tuesday, and Houston and Falkirk fans have done very well to create a false rivalry between the clubs.

In Falkirk now and hoping a few beers will ease the nerves.

This is a great opportunity for the club to start paying us back after some dreadful seasons - let's hope that it is taken.

a) It's very important we are clear on whether or not you can see the ground from the train, the train from the ground and whether in either (or both) cases the trains involved are passenger trains, goods trains or passenger and goods trains.

b) We are going to be stitched up tonight some how. I can feel it coming. I'll guess a ludicrous red card from Thomson.

I will leave your point a to others however you have a very valid point b.

Cheat needs to be strong this evening however we MUST stay disciplined.

I expect some rough tactics early on from them to try and get in about Dylan and co in the middle of the park.

Let's just go out there, stand tall, stay strong, be professional and don't let the *******s bully us!!

I am feeling more confident than a few weeks ago.

The first 20 mins of the 2nd half were very good on Tuesday.

These players have the quality to win this - the Hibs fans need to arrive early and be vocal - will make a massive difference.

First goal is going to important - I really hope we are clinical and don't allow Falkirk to disrupt us to much.

Come on Hibs we can do it!

I'm nervous because if they happen to beat us,Houston will be lauded as some sort of tactical genius when we all know he's nothing but a pri##.
It also has to be said that most of the sportsound team will be creaming themselves.

It's a mental mindset to have but I always feel if I'm not at a game then the outcome may have been different if I had been.

I'm probably more nervous about this because I'm not going and unable to watch it, I'm relying on here and the beeb, than I would have been if I was there or even watching on TV.

This is huge, I just hope we get the job done and I can start planning a midweek trip to Kilmarnock.

The past couple of weeks/ months iv became even more obsessed with hibs than normal.

It feels like every waking moment I'm counting down to game day feeling hyped for it and very very nervous.

I can't deal with another season in this league, to the extent that I won't be able to fully celebrate the Scottish cup win (if we win it)until the second leg of the play offs if we get there.

In fact I'm honestly not bothered or focused on the Scottish cup final at all at this moment.

All I want is promotion.

If we do get promoted it will feel more relief than anything, I feel drained from the amount of nerves I have had lately.

I hope the players are the same.

Falkirk won't have a clue how to play it tonight, since a draw isn't good enough for them and that's all they've aspired to against us all season.

Can see a relatively comfortable win for Hibs, something like 2-0 without Falkirk really laying a glove on us.
