Can make out your laughing all u want, what would u get, 5500 saints and lucky to get 1500 of Livi....would it even be at Hamden if fans were allowed in? Ffs if Saints and St Johnstone got to final you would be lucky to break 18,000 at final.

Seriously, WGAF how many would or would not turn up?

If it's big crowds you need to get excited there are two other teams just 5-10 miles away.

Split hairs as much as you like the fact is Livingston are not playing like they played against earlier in the season. 

I don't think the odds are even close to ridiculous, I'd have had us over 3/1. 

Not long to go to find out. 

And against us, Rangers didn't play like they played earlier in the season either. How did that go?

TBH, not really sure what your point is.

It's 90 minutes of Cup football. Prior form is irrelevant. There is absolutely nothing between the teams and it could go either way.

Back in your airy fairy box.

I'm not surprised you don't get the point, you know nothing about football. 

Tell that to the bookies. :byebye

I don't need to tell it to anyone.

Goodwin is saying the same thing as me and he'll have been drumming that into the players all week. That's good enough for me.

And I don't do gambling. Gambling is a mugs game.

We can relax folks.

Apparently what matters is what the bookies say.

We can all go home as Betfair and the others have "decided" that Livingston are through to the Final.

Ah well. We had a good run. Damn disappointing to go out at this stage but when the bookies speak there is nothing you can do.

Personally I'm gutted but it's back to league business.

Do the Bookies always get it right?

What odds were we to beat sevco?

You do know the bookies get it right MORE often than nought? :lol:

Quoting the ODD shock result doesn't make your point any stronger I'm afraid. 

I'll assume you've not read this thread where it's been pointed out we were playing well at that point.

If you REALLY think we're playing well right now time for a wee break.

We should just dispense with competition altogether and let the bookies call it.

No more queueing in the cold.

No more crap pies and bad refs.

The advantages just rack up when you think about it.

If a million people put money on a Saints win tomorrow, how would the bookies change the odds?

I mean, I'm not an expert on such things but apparently you are so I'm asking you.

How would the odds change? Would they change at all?

Slightly, we've been here before, the money placed slightly alters the odds, it the probability they use to set the odds.

Wasting my time, you're clueless.

OK so you don't know how it works then.😀

They are not trying to predict match results.

They are there to make money.

If everyone piles money on a Saints win, the odds on a Saints win would be slashed because they'd go bust if Saints won the game and they left the odds relatively untouched.

You're making a fool of yourself.

Of course there's SHOCK results, that's why their called shock results.

We can win tomorrow, it's just unlikely.

Oh, who said we had NO CHANCE of beating Hearts in the final? :wacko:

I’m not saying we are playing well just now.I’m saying the Bookie doesn’t always get it right.

I do, explained it to you years ago, it obviously didn't work.

I'm done with you, I'll be back when people who have a football pint of view

I knew you'd rubber the bit below. :lol:
