    Still on the SFA radar to have games played later in the year, preferably with fans & supporters in attendance. A detailed plan for the competition will come clear after the SFA/SPFL joint response group have positive movement to resume football next season in a safe manner.

    I canít see how this can go ahead without a rule change - I think cup tied players will have to be un-cup tied for a start otherwise teams might not have enough players.

    Itís a fair point. Wouldnít be surprised if they treated the semiís as a new Scottish cup year. Itís the easiest thing to do

    Bloody typical
    We will win the cup and the new season will start
    We may take hearts record as shortest holders of the trophy
    Then again we might just have to win it again
    On a serious note they will really be up for this semifinal
    There mustnít be any complacency from us this time

    Likely the only derby of next season. We HAVE to win.

    I'm sceptical this will take place, in a normal season there can be a lot of fixture congestion without adding to it.

    Looking at it objectively, there is also a 'sporting integrity' argument against the fixtures. If this is later in the year then you could be looking at four drastically different teams featuring from the squads that they were previously fielding, there could be an argument to be made that those teams haven't earned a place in the semi or have gained an unfair advantage.

    Even if we get on top of covid enough to make it practically possible, I think you'd need all four teams to agree the rules about player eligibility.

    I can just imagine Marciano saving the penalty in the shoot out for Celtic to beat us and win the cup.

    Or Boyce to score the winner for us in the semi v Hearts.
