    Again, weíll see. But outwith the old firm, Arbroath away for me is the one I wanted to avoid.
    Youíd rather Hearts or Aberdeen away than Arbroath?

    Thatís nuts.

    Good record, but have they played anyone above championship level?
    St Johnstone beat them 3-2 after AET at Gayfield.

    Played Dundee Utd in the LC group stages, lost away 1-0. Lost at home to St Johnstone on penalties in the next round

    It’ll be difficult but the new players will be match fit and if we can’t beat a team from the league below we won’t have deserved to progress. Should be a great day out. One ground I’ve not seen us play at so I’ll be involved in the scramble for tickets.

    Are the amusements at the back of the stadium at Arbroath open all year round or just in the summer?

    Iíve passed a hundred times with work but never actually been inside the stadium. Also trying to remember if itís an indoor amusements or just an outdoor funfair? Memory playing tricks on me here.

    I said it was a terrible tie. It is a terrible tie. Arbroath havenít lost at home in literally months, will be confident they can win it, have a very good manager and a very tidy squad and will have no expectations or pressure on them whatsoever .

    If Rangers or Celtic got the same draw Iíd still fancy an upset. Seen them this season so this isnít based on nothing.

    Itíll be a lot tougher than a lot of people expect - theyíve not been beaten at home since July.

    For those that havenít had the pleasure of a visit to Garfield before, the ground/wind will be a real leveller.
    Has anyone said they dont expect a tough tie? Just because some of us aren't quaking in our boots doesn't mean we expect a stroll.

    Seen them this season against who? Other championship sides. That league is as poor as itís been in years.

    Youíd have fancied Arbroath to beat Rangers or Celtic? Are you having a bevy tonight?

    Not this one. Gayfield is a tough place to play at the best of times, but against a team with nothing to lose and in incredible form, particularly if the winds off the North Sea are up, that’s an awful draw. No pressure on them and expectation completely on us.
    Back in the day,laddies would be on the beach to retrieve the ball when it was kicked over the wall.
    Clubs didnae have dozens of free sponsors balls back then.
    Gayfield on a windy day ? Paragliders dream.
    Hibs will need to be at their best. The elements may be tougher than the Red Lichties.

    You seem determined to have an argument, I hope you find it with someone but as for just now, youíre not worth another second of my time pal 👍

    In hearing the club are giving priority to those who attended the Cove match.
    Those who couldn't be bothered will have to watch this one on TV, or listen to biscuits and his mates
    Hearing all those folk who shout abuse at our own players and moan about Nisbet on here and at games are at the back of the queue for tickets.

    Itís no a terrible tie, itís a part time side from a lower league.

    Itís a proper cup tie and will probably be tough, hope itís not moved to some ridiculous time as itíll be a good day out.

    Arbroath have Partick thistle and Killie at home before facing us, they will have lost their unbeaten home record for this season before we roll up to beat them ;)

    It's definitely not an easy fixture. Just like it wouldn't be if we were drawn away to ICT or Kille, two teams Arbroath are ahead of in the league.

    Still think we'll win though.

    What?

    Tell you what, seeing as how you can only resort to trolling and the like, Iím guessing you know **** all about this one. They score a lot of goals in the league compared to other teams in the league and are amongst the best defences too. Despite their part time status they may be the fittest team in the league. We struggle against a hard and high press which they do very well, we concede too many goals from crosses and theyíve scored a good amount this season from crosses too. We struggled against St Johnstone and their organisation last season - the core of their team has been there for ages.

    If we play against them like we did against Cove theyíll beat us within the 90. Maloney needs to get this system clicking very quickly as we will need to be at our very best for this one, their style will suit the game and itís a very tough venue on a tight pitch. Their centre backs in Little and OíBrien are strong, good in the air and are a very good partnership and donít make many mistakes. They also offer a threat at set pieces.

    Iím sure youíll have some knowledge about them to enlighten us with.

    We should be beating Arbroath in our sleep.

    I wonder if any of our players would get into Arbroath's starting 11.

    Gayfield in winter is the coldest place on earth. Brutal doesn't begin to describe it. It won't be easy.

    I'd say cove Rangers would beat Arbroath
    If abroad DONT get promoted this season, they won't find Cove easy to beat
    It's not an easy tie...it's the last 16 of the Scottish Cup, it's VERY winnable and I will be gutted if we lose
