I've only ever started one match thread on here and it was the semi-final v Morton which we won, so I'm starting this in the hope it brings us luck.

Likely to be Saturday 22 April with a 12.15pm kick-off. At Hampden.

Been to three Hibs/Aberdeen semis. 1993 1-0 at Tynecastle, the 2000 semi at Hampden with Dow's winner, and five years ago when it was two shit teams.

Reckon this will be a belter.

Having applied no thought or research...when was the last semi final containing neither of the old firm to get over 40k as this surely will?

Hearts/Hibs in 2006? 43,106 that day.

Was 28,278 there between us and Hibs in 2012, but reckon with both clubs with their tails up this time it'll swell a bit. Not sure we'll reach 40,000 though, not for a lunchtime kick-off.

Hope they have the sense not to limit to one ticket per person as per League Cup Final. We need to do all we can to get 20k + to Hampden for a televised game.

The Northern Lights of old Aberdeen

Mean home sweet home to me

The Northern Lights of Aberdeen

Are what I long to see

I've been a wanderer all of my life

And many a sight I've seen

God speed the day when l'm on my way

To my home in Aberdeen!!

I'd agree on the guess of Saturday lunchtime.

Sky already have english games on saturday and sunday so its probably six and two threes what match they put where.

BBC get to share one match but no idea if they would have any sway whatsoever for kick off times

After the new Huns and the Tattie munchers there's only one team I really hate and that's Hibs.

Never met a Hibs fan with all their teeth.

They are pish and I hope we turn them over.

Had a spy on Hibs.net. All they're talking about is "this is a chance to show we've a bigger support than the Dons."

Are you going to accept that @super_al ?

Yes I saw that. I believe it was on Jambos Kickback that they have quoted it from. 

 

I have to say our crowds are alarmingly poor this season. 11k for a QTR final with the away team taking nearly 1k is very worrying.

Criminally left out of this, but love the American commentary, especially when we're referred to as "the visitors".

That Ebbe celebration. I remember it setting off a hilarious keyboard gangster argument on the old AFC Chat.

Ullevi Dons bus (@razor) stopped at a chippie in Laurencekirk on the way home, and sportscene was on showing the highlights. Somebody slagged off Ebbe's celebration, which angered someone within earshot, but rather than say anything they bottled up their anger for the rest of the trip home and into the next day, before calling him out on the forum (his username was on the back of his shirt!) and threatening to kick his head in, leading to a day of the two of them threatening to sort each other out having not said boo to each other the day before.

Loved that forum.

It's not worrying at all. All four teams had Cup crowds below their average.

We'll take 15,000 to Hampden.

If Hibs can get 13,600 against Ayr we should have been able to match that against a premier league side regardless of whether it was on TV or not. 

 

I think 15k sounds about right for the semi. Kick off time will affect things as they normally are at 12:30pm.

Hibs will easily take more than us to tge semi. That being said it'll make it sweeter when we win.
