Scottish Cup 2017/18

Recommended Posts

There's some fantastic names in Scottish non-league Football. Burntisland Shipyard and Banks O'Dee two of the best.

Great pay days for Brechin City and Fraserburgh. But the tie of the round has got to be the Edinburgh derby.

The Edinburgh Derby is becoming like the Celtic v Aberdeen of this year, they're playing all the bloody time. 

Motherwell v Hamilton is a local derby as well I believe and a non-league side is guaranteed a spot in the next round in Cove or Formartine.

Is Aberdeen v St Mirren the best tie out there? Arguably Motherwell v Hamilton is a better tie and I'd personally rather see Albion v St Johnstone, too.

Hearts vs Hibs?

Or is that not a big game any more despite the Edinburgh city rivalry?

That is already televised.

Yeah, I didn't understand that either. Same last year when Aberdeen were at home to Partick and it was televised. Annoying to say the least, especially when the money that clubs get for being televised has been reduced. Expecting a dreadful crowd for the game now.

Hearts vs Hibs about to kick off on Sky Sports Main Event.

both teams should have scored by now. Naismith missed an open goal on his debut in the first few minutes. Boyle, for Hibs, should have tapped in from close range but hit it wide.

Hibs have looked the better team, but have lacked a focal point up front. Efe Ambrose is a danger to his own team at the best of times, but playing him at fullback is asking for trouble.

what a finale. Fortunate goal for Hearts as a Berra header (flicked on by Cowie) is blocked on the line but the spin from that block takes it just over the line. 1-0 to Hearts!

A good match in the sense of a lot was happening, but tbh the lack of control and end product was a bit silly at times. Naismith looked good considering the intensity of the match and his lack of games.

disappointed the ref didn't hand out more cards. There were plenty of challenges deserving of bookings.

It seems a lot easier in English football to get a booking. I didn't think the referee was any more lenient than usual.

to be honest, it was more because of the bet I had in the Tipping Thread xD

At least two lower league teams guaranteed to be in the Quarter Finals.

Huge incentive for the replay next week. Kilmarnock were the superior team yesterday and a massive improvement is required.

do you fancy your chances against either of the Glasgow clubs should you beat Kilmarnock? @ScoRoss

Derek McInnes' record against Rangers or Celtic is probably among some of the worst in recent times.

@Rab How's my man Russell Martin doing?

A very good addition to our squad. Mostly solid at the back.

Good to hear. He's been a great servant for us. Top guy too, he's done lots of charitable work and showing his face at football in the community type things

Half the Aberdeen team is suspended, or may as well be, so it's an odd game in store. Seems no one on either side is confident going into the game today.

I’ll sadly be on a train to Newcastle tomorrow afternoon so I can satisfy myself by reading the Twitter rage whichever way it goes.

Goal Celtic! 

Tom Rogic continues his good scoring form against Rangers as he nets another. Had about 4 Rangers players around him yet still manages to get a shot away.
