I thought by this time we would have seen Flynn getting a game.  Similar to Danny Mullen if he doesn't come on in Saturday's game I don't  think we'll see him again. 

🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

On current form, Livi should win this comfortably, however, fortunately form goes out the window in this one off semi.

Just as likely Livi will have a wee dip in form or suffer a bout of overconfidence - and surely we’re due a performance.

There’s no doubt our players need to play better than they have in recent weeks, individually and collectively, and JG needs to find a better formation, otherwise we will lose. Even if Livi don’t turn up.

Think JG will go for 4-4-1-1.

Defence picks itself
One up top (Brophy?) with McGrath just behind.
But I struggle to see who to start in midfield:
Connolly and Durmus out wide ?
Erhahon and Flynn/Foley central ?

Livi have looked very good recently, but their form has to end sometime and no reason that can’t be Sunday.

COYS !!

(Yes, I know - it’s the hope that kills you)

To true, our form in 2013 was pretty poor before and after winning the cup. We ended up finishing 2nd bottom.

What he been like in our past games?

He was the ref at our home game v Dundee United.

Didn't seem to be many comments about him during/after the game. Although, we could barely see anything because of the fog in the second half.

Alan Muir is the fourth official.

I don't share your optimism. 

On the one hand we have beaten Livi twice this season, however how typical would it be to lose this one? I'm not sure form goes out of the window, I think that's basically an old footballing cliche, which I doubt is substantiated by any real evidence. Psychology is a huge factor in football, so let's hope Livi get gubbed tonight, and maybe that will influence the result on Sunday.

The only positive, which is another footballing cliche, is that 'our name's on the Cup' and, having beaten Aberdeen and Rangers, we are simply destined to win it. 

3-1 Livingston. :(

Please don’t misinterpret my post as being optimistic. I’m saying you just never know.

I actually think Livi will win 2 or 3 nil, but there is always a chance, albeit a very slim one, that the cards may fall our way on the day and we end defying the odds to win. Highly unlikely, but possible.

I think Fakes will beat Hibs but lose to Livi in the final.

I know there always a chance of winning but in all honesty it's a very very slim one. We haven't played well since beating the **** and we are weaker now team wise where as they have got better and better. Don't even see us scoring. 3-0 Livingston.
