Anyone but celtic. Hopefully someone can do us a favour like last year and we can avoid them completely.

Aberdeen would be a boring tie. Celtic would be too difficult but Huns would be spicy and winnable. Only one option for who we want imo.

WW3 if Hibs are drawn against the Ibrox club.

I wouldn't discount Partick to be honest. On a good run.

I fancied one surprise in the quarters. Two games to go. :wink:

The reaction to us drawing them would be unbelievable. The police presence and the security would be madness at the game. Plus no trophy presentation/celebrations to separate us after the game.

:agree: I hope I'm wrong, but it's not hard to foresee trouble if Hibs are drawn against the Ibrox club.

I fancy a shock in one game tomorrow and us drawing them.

I want Rangers.

But I have a gut feeling we're getting Celtic in the semis.

I don't think there's any doubt about it - if we're drawn against The Rangers there WILL be trouble.

And I'd expect the Mason in the Middle and his sidekicks to make absolutely certain that we have a snowball's chance in a very hot place of beating them.

Wasn't Sevco beating Hamilton it?

We'll be playing Sevco in the league next year anyway, so might as well get our first meeting with them out of the way this season.

Rangers in the semi.
Aberdeen in the final.

I wonder if the BBC are showing it at all? They didn't mention it once in last night's Sportscene.

Anyone know who's making the draw?

if celtic get through today there is no way they will play rangers in the semi, the sfa want them in the final

first year of being in the premier league, they will want everyone to know this is how it should be, rangers and celtic back at the top again

I never understand the fascination around these draws being fixed or corrupt. Whether rangers and Celtic draw each other or avoid each other it gets classed as an obvious SFA fix...

Celtic V Sevco
Patrick thistle V Hibs

Rangers in the semi - Hibs win on penalties and huns riot after the game.

Celtc in the final - since nobody else can beat them we'll need to do it. :greengrin

How funny would it be if Celtic go the whole season undefeated and then we get them in the final and beat them to win our second Scottish Cup in a row!?

The problem with the SFA wanting an old firm final (if that is the case) is.....rangers are crap. They can put them against us but that's certainly not a guaranteed win and Aberdeen would probably beat them.

Celtic v Sevco is best for us. While the teams are mismatched, the fact that it's a derby will level the playing field a little bit. I've got no doubt we'll hammer the Huns in the final, and to do it 2 years in a row would be oh so sweet.

I agree.

Also, the bit in bold - after Beaton and his assistants disgraceful performance at Greyskull yesterday, who can now doubt that there's something rotten in our game? See below.

Hopefully celtic go out today but unfortunately I can't see it. A very very strong team who are cruising at the moment and sweeping teams aside with ease every week. Sadly, I hate to say it but i'd be very surprised if they didn't win the SC. But hey, in a one off game who knows, stranger things have happened!

Would take the huns in the semi-final. If the yams can beat them 4-1 then we sure as hell can beat them as well. I don't think they are anything to be scared of. Police Scotland might not be very happy if that draw came out the hat today though :greengrin

A few folk have suggested this but I think any of the three remaining teams against Sevco is a nightmare for the police. I don't think our Cup Final debacle picks us out as a particular source of trouble.

I've just re-read what I wrote and feel I should add, 'if Celtic and Aberdeen get through'.

I was saying this earlier on to friends, there's a common denominator here. If we draw celtic, Aberdeen or Partick the game passes with next to no trouble. Regardless of who the huns draw their is guaranteed trouble yet their fans are never to blame.

It's human nature to think there's a bit of hanky panky at times but the SFA couldn't risk fixing draws. Imagine if one of the ball pickers blew the gaff at a later stage. I'm not being innocent or naive but these conspiracy theories are bull.

The SFA couldn't fix a draw full stop. They can barely make a run of the mill draw without some sort of circus rearing its head, so how folk think they would have the craft and guile to actually fix a draw is beyond me!

The SFA couldnt organise a pi55 up in a brewery, but they do manage to get the right refs for the right games.

Yep.

They clearly were fixed in the olden days when the semi final draw was made behind closed doors and Celtic and Rangers never drew each other but that doesn't happen nowadays. I'd still be happier if they stirred the balls before the draw though!

Barring a disaster for A'deen, which I can't see, we'll be the underdogs in the semis whoever we play so we should just enjoy it and prepare to get ripped into whoever it is in that one-off.

In the meantime let's focus on the league. We have the advantage but anybody who puts a strong run of wins can do it as everbody (including us) are stuttering.
