Dons v Hearts, Ibrox

ICT v Perth, Pittodrie

 

My source at BT Sport says it's true.

If that scenario panned out, they should play our game at Easter Road.

Correct, 

 

Not a chance in hell our semi is going to be at ibrox regardless of who we draw

 

Prediction it will either be in Dundee or Edinburgh

I'd like to point out that Stoney seems to be a decent bloke.
I met him at Tynecastle last season and he seemed spot on to me.
So I'd lay off the abuse to him lads.

A bold prediction there Stoney.

 

Could you speculate on what day follows Thursday?

Is shaughnessy suspended for the semi or does the suspension get served for next game i.e Partick?

Is there highlights available from last night's game?

I just watched STV news hoping to at least see the goals but all they showed was the goal from the Hearts / Hibs game.

What is going on?

Last night was just terrific.

 

I think that was the best display of resolve and determination I've ever seen from a Dons side in my time supporting them. I did not think for a second that we'd make it to the semi-final when Joe was sent off. Bounce for both goals was incredible, certainly gave the folks in the corporate box right behind us a good fright.

 

Highlights now on the BBC website. Longer already available on RedTV.

For me, a superb result but let's not ignore the fact that despite being given multiple warnings in the form of the disallowed goal and the red card, we didn't "wake up" until ... Well, Considine's goal more-or-less. We could hardly string a pass together, let alone play any kind of football that might build to something. Yes, we had a man less but we made Motherwell look far, far better than they were by conspiring to pass the ball straight to them - and I don't mean by punting balls over the top, or panic clearances - I mean straight to them from six yards.
 
Dons' Set pieces were with the exception of the corner for Considine's BULLDOZER, were abysmal.
 
Superb engine on Wilo Flood; he never stopped running. Vital block from Langfield to stop what seemed a certain goal for the Well, but by God his kicking is absolutely dreadful. 
 
Still, this is the mark of a capable team; putting in a sub-standard performance, and snatching victory. 
 
I'm sure I could hear the sonic boom from Hayes' shot as he rifled it into the net. He looked up, picked his spot and absolutely launched it. 
 
Incredible support and what an atmosphere at the end.

Thanks for bringing a bit of sanity to the forum Terrorfex...a great result where it looks like we had the rub of the green...Mchun still has a mountain to climb...it's not like we haven't been here before.

Great goal by Hayes.  Didn't rush it and finished with aplomb.

INJURED: Magennis & Murray
Vernon, Robson, Wylde and Considine pushing for starts. Clark looking to get involved in the travelling squad

Does Anderson start? Does Robson start? The only two questions I am afraid sorry Vernon/Wylde

Langfield

Shaughnessy Anderson Reynolds Considine

McGinn Jack Pawlett Flood Hayes

Zola

subs: Weaver, Hector, Vernon, Robson, Wylde
others: Robertson, Smith, Clark

Prediction: 1-1 at 90 minutes


No way will Anderson start, we rested a Hector and Considine so I'm expecting them to start.

I haven't seen the highlights but from what I've read the victory had as much to do with the captain stepping up to the plate as it had with any tactical master stroke from the manager...Well played Russell.

More negative shite towards the manager.

I would say it was worthy of a red card having now seen it. Missed the excitement due to getting in late.

After letting everything simmer doon, and after watching a few replays, I can only come to the conclusion that the BBC have missed out Langfields "wonder save" to keep us in it at 0-0 as the only save you see him make is actually a dreadful piece of goalkeeping, parrying a weak shot from 15 yards or so straight out in to the middle of his area, compounded thereafter by woefully flapping at fresh air from the resulting corner. 

I might be missing something. Perhaps the good folks on here from the goalkeeping fraternity can piss on my chips.

Starzo, you were right about the old windbag.

It was an awful moss, rather than a decent save.
