    Given lenny and his track record of making subs after the 70 min when we are in the * and not before, i do not think we need to go looking for trouble.Always play the strongest 11 and this season \0/ is not in that team. cameo roll aye sure but not starting a cup final.

    Soro & Turnbull start. No questions. 2 natural strikers up top. Get on the front foot. Control the game. Don't show Hearts too.much respect. Press high, play hard. Quadruple champions.

    Hail hail.....

    He'll stick with 4231 which I think is right, we need consistency now in team selection and set up. If we play 1 up top then Paddy or Griff has to start.

    He probably will. Think 1 striker gives defences (of a lower standard) too much respect and an easy ride. Especially when Eddy does it. You want Ajeti just hanging about the box, * off the CB's, whilst another can stretch the defence and work around them.

    We should be showing this mob absolutely no respect whatsoever!!!! No matter how we are playing we should never be giving this lot respect.

    This argument that "Brown deserves it" is baffling. He's been poor this season. Soro and Turnbull have came in and been an improvement. They deserve to keep their place.

    Yes it's last seasons trophy, but it's being played this season.

    Turnbull will definitely start and I think Sorn will too.

    It'll be a weird day. Usually I am up at the crack of dawn, get the tunes on followed by a big breakfast and then leave the house to follow the Hibs walk that usually takes place around the east end of Glasgow on cup final day. I loved the buzz we got stopping of at pubs along the way to Hampden and the increasing noise level as we got closer to the ground. All that will be missing on Sunday and nothing can ever replace it but I am just happy we have the chance to do the quadruple on Sunday.

    Just dont do a Gerard and underestimate the opposition,field the strongest team possible and let them play positive football and we win.

    If lenny plays Brown and goes one up front dont be surprised if we struggle to find the net,and then watch the late subs(2 up front with 10 to go) and the desperation to score in the last minute.

    Without being disrespectful to Broony, I agree. His best days are well behind him and I don’t think it serves a purpose to anyone for him to play on when he’s clearly in decline.

    His role should be a leader in the changing room and demanding a high standard from players in training. I’d like to see him introduced into the coaching set up next year.

    I think we just have to score more goals in 90 minutes than they do...
