    8/12, a Sunday. We play Hamilton on 4/12 at home, Rangers away to Aberdeen and Hearts at home to livingstone so we have the easiest fixture pre final

    For those who are in love.....
    Love sticking it to this mob..

    Going forward we can score at will..

    Defensively that was alarming today though..

    Elyounoussi, Broony, Frimpong, Boli and Eddy were all class..

    Ajer, Hayes when he came on were both extremely poor..

    Also thought Forrest was overly greedy again today..

    Great win getting 5 and in another final. Happy day's but we really need to defend better than that. Bit like Motherwell or Killie where they seem to score from their first or only shots on target. Need to sharpen up there..

    Brilliant going forward but a bit slack at times at the back especially when Lenny changed the formation, we made it harder than it needed to be especially in the 2nd half at times but then it is a semi final so it’s hard to be critical after winning 5-2.

    Just thought Christie would of made a big difference coming on earlier since Rogic disappeared by 60 mins.

    Eddy, Elyounoussi and Frimpong were class once again, McGregor finding his form again and Forrest could of easily had 3 assists if he wasn’t as greedy in the box.

    Felt the team were a little bit complacent this evening.

    Several players made poor choices when entering the Hibs box, and overlooked team mates in better positions.

    Also felt defensively the team were slow to organise, and clear the box for their well taken 2nd goal.

    All in all, it was probably too easy. But you always fear one day complacency will bite us in the *.

    Still it’s nice to win a semi final 5-2, and moan about something. Bit like saying my beers too cold!!

    30 domestic cup wins in a row. Going for our tenth trophy in a row. Forgot we actually won the league Cup in 2015 as well - James Forrest scoring that day against Dundee United. It's unbelievable. Been there, done that, and doing it again, again and again.

    A know people will think 5 goals and eddy never scored but his link up play and assists today was pure class, Larsonesque that although he loves scoring if he sees someone in a better position, very unselfish like a lot of striker s

    agree aswell Forrest did okay today but unlike him he seemed a bit greedy when a pass would have been better to someone else in a better position

    The defending was sloppy for both goals, when wee Hayes was left back he was getting caught up the Park and they seemed to have loads of room down the left but he’s not a left back so it’s natural
    All in all was a great display again some great football ⚽️

    only other small gripe when big julien plays a long pass from defence he needs to be more precise as they were constantly getting intercepted

    Brilliant going forward again today. Scoring 5 goals and missing all the chances we did is crazy in a cup semi-final. The first goal they got I will say was unlucky but we did seem to switch off when Brown made it 4-1 and were slack defensively after that. But hard to be too critical when we won so comfortably overall. Elyounossi was a deserved man of the match. he was brilliant today and I love the fact that he works back hard and defends for the team as well. He just gets better and better as he settles into the team.
