    Heading down for this one, looking forward to catching up with a couple of Saints from Shetland. Saints to win but no clean sheet - 1v3.

    East Lothian Saint reacted to Kemp in Aberdeen v St Mirren Scottish Cup Round 4   
    Fux sake, the negativity from some people!
    It's a difficult draw, a very difficult draw, but not a bad one.  First thing you want as a supporter in the cup is an away day against a team not in your league.  Done - a good stop for chips & beer in Stonehaven and then on to the game.
    Should be a crowd of about 13,000?  Half of that is a decent bit of cash banked.
    The game is on the 20th January, Aberdeen have three weeks off prior to the game.  That's long enough for them to get rusty - we have seen it plenty of times when the top league comes back from a winter break and gets put out the cup by a lower league side.  Give me competitive games against Dumbarton and Inverness any day over a break in Tenerife as preparation.
    Our front line can cause anyone problems, there's no reason to think we can't go up there and get a coupe of goals.  It would seem the defence has come a long way since that shambles at Patrick Thistle in the League Cup, with big Harry Davis back now I expect we will get stronger.
    On our day we can beat any team in Scotland except Celtic, and even at Parkhead we have shown we can compete.  Off our day we can ship a load of goals against anyone as well.  Lets just travel in hope and see what comes.  We certainly have nothing to do be scared of, and these are the type of games you need to win at some point if you are going to win the cup.

    We have skill and pace that is enough to cause any team problems add in the fact our players will be right up for this to prove they can play at the highest level if we dont win at least Aberdeen will know they have been in a game. Looking forward to making the trip north one of the fee games i can attend.

    Probably no point in turning up since it's a dead cert we'll lose this game eh ? 
    Not for me , I prefer to think we always have chance. I do agree with you about the league though, but with this game being a 90 minute winner takes all , we very much have a chance . 
    Also , with this match scheduled for the 20th Jan weekend, you might find there are a lot of changes to the playing and management staff at both clubs that could have a bearing on the outcome. 
    For just now I'm still dreaming of a cup winning season .

    Here we go again after the international break. Early kick off. New ground and it's the cup. Bring it on. Edinburgh train is mobbed. Xmas shopping must have started. The city is looking very festive with the Market and all that. Let's hope santa ain't playing for them. Confident of a saints win. Anything else is unthinkable. Imagine Shull going on for all eternity about hutchy vale, Raith rovers and wanting JR replaced by Danny Lennon the ghost of Xmas past. Fecking bah Humbug. COYS. Give us some yuletide cheer.

    PS Santa. Give Shull a JR cardigan he really wants one.

    A report by the Office for National Statistics puts life expectancy rates in Renfrewshire as some of the lowest in the UK.
    Nearest pub is Luckies on Gorgie Road. The walk will improve your health  and if the office for  National Statistics is anything to go by we all better get as many drinks in as we can because we're all doomed.

    East Lothian Saint reacted to Isle Of Bute Saint in The Cost Of Supporting SMFC   
    Taken with a pinch of salt however the pepper is the money spent at away games travel, food/drink , gate , take the wife and total cost ends up the price of a good meal with a nice bottle of wine. Never have had a meal yet where I stand up and shout yeeeeees grab my wife give her a cuddle then move to the next table and give the strangers a cuddle ,  sitting back at my own table with a huge grin on my face and start singing "When The Chef Goes Marching In ". Only the love of your team brings that kind of excitemnt, passion, happiness. The other side of the coin is Tommy Craig / Alex Rae managing your team then you think this is an expensive day out.  Mumbling on here so Im away to bake my fresh scons that sell out daily not quite as exciting as seeing a Saints goal but puts a spring in your foot.

    Ha! Ha! Being self employed is not the piece of pish everyone non-self employed person thinks it us and don't forget after your hard days graft to keep the accounts up to date. The paperwork should keep you up all night too!!!  it's 24/7 pal. enjoy.
    Looking forward to the match. we are playing a team who are undefeated this season and are used to winning, I hope it's a straight forward win. I think we will need a strong physical presence (Could be an ideal Sutton start) coupled with some speed to ensure we cuff this mob who will be right up for it and in our faces. They will no doubt put in a good few strong tackles and harry us none stop. It might not be pretty. Watched their video of their Southern league cup win over East Kilbride whom they easily dispatched 3-1 at EK. I Think we struggled with that mob in the league cup but they played some good football and played like a buch of self employed cafe owners putting in some real hard graft. The boys Victoria and woods play well up front together and look dangerous.
     
    Hopefully JR will have his paperwork and preparation done and our boys will have a serious 24/7 type attitude and all turn up on the day to make sure we are not a cup upset.

    Plan of action is for myself and Supermac to get the 10:15 from Queens Street through to Waverley then hit a pub for a few pre match ales before getting the number 25 bus out towards the stadium.
     
    I am sure there will be a few fellow buds on this early train.
     
    Can't wait for what should be a great day out assuming we don't draw or get beat. ;-)

    Just to let you know mate, (i dunno if it was a typo or not) but you need to get the 25 bus to where the ground is not the 26 bus, otherwise you will end up down in musselburgh for the afternoon

    Currently doing some research on behalf of the thousands of buds who will be flooding through Waverley on Saturday. Mmm hundreds then. Well the trickle. In tiles bistro which is the nearest pub to the Waverly tram stop. £4 for a pint of tenants but it's the city centre. It's football and rugby friendly. I'll just try the Merlin's ale. Not bad.......Shull calm down I'm researching.
