Are we coverting this one to match thread or starting another? Either way...,

Injured: Jack, Robertson
Suspended: Shaughnessey

I want to see the 4-2-3-1 that has served us well this season in the earlier stages of the season. Potential for any signings (non cup tied ones of course) to come straight into the starting XI - especially potential for Hector to sign and start. Would have had Jack at RB for this one but in his absence McInnes will go for Tate ahead of Clark and Murray:

Langfield

Tate Anderson Reynolds Considine

Flood Robson

McGinn Pawlett Hayes

Rooney

subs: Weaver, Low, Vernon, Smith, Magennis
prediction: 1-0 cup-tie Considine with a header

Craig Bryson & Paul Coutts = the dream team

Russell Anderson, Dave Mackay, Nigel Hasselbaink and Brian Easton are all one booking away from a League Cup suspension. Either the cup final or their first game in 2015/16 league cup

Don't care about formations or who plays, just win the game, 1-0.

Is it the Scottish Cup that you get less subs?

Counsel on behalf of RIFC argued that "Rangers are 1 of biggest brands in world"

to which Lord Tyre retorted " it didn't stop them being liquidated. LOL"

Really hope we do the business this weekend, this team from what I've seen this season don't bottle it like teams in the recent history have. We can't have yet another disappointment. Can't wait for this one

Langfield

 

Tate  Considine  Reynolds  Hayes

 

Flood  Low

 

McGinn  Pawlett  Robson

 

Rooney

 

Subs - Weaver, Anderson, Smith, Vernon, Magennis

 

My reasoning behind Anderson being on the bench is two-fold.

 

1 - He's a booking away from a place in the final. Now, he's a great professional and leader but I don't want potentially missing the final hanging over his head. Hesitating for a tackle could be what distinguishes between victory and defeat.

 

2 - Playing four centre halves is brutal. If Reynolds plays left back we would have some sort of attacking threat from full-back. We'll get fuck all from Tate in that regard. Instead, play Hayes there and we can really go at them from the start, overlapping on their right-back MacKay. Hayes was decent there against County and United and coming from full-back there's more chance of getting in behind.

Rather that than us NOT making the final. 

 

I'd be gutted for him if he couldn't make the final...but he got us there with some sublime performances, especially the Motherwell game.

Team pretty much picks itself. Worry are really right back and hope Tate's fitness improved in last two weeks and the usual worries about you know who in semi final/big match.

More nervous about this than I have been about anything else in my life for a long time. Looking back at previous years I always believed we would win the semis, a totally misplaced belief looking at this team and teams of the recent past.

I expect a tight game at a ground we are notoriously shite at and I don't like the 'favourite' tag one bit.

Same - longest week ever. 

 

An early goal would be a dream - however we need to keep on top of these cunts from the start.

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.

I don't feel nervous but to be fair I wasn't before QOS either.  Theres no doubting St Johnstone for me are stronger than the teams we've lost to before, bar perhaps Dundee Utd.  That Hibs one was harder to take than QOS for me.  Every one of the 4 teams must be looking at this year as the year to win a cup, I don't think there's much between the sides.

Theres nothing between the four teams. 

 

I'd prefer Cally in the final, hearts will take a big following as it will be there last cup final for some time, young players put in the extra yard if the fans are behind them. 

 

I'd fear for us every winning anything again if we cant win this. Huge chance, perhaps the only cure for the last 10 years of pap.

I know some folk say it in jest but the difference may be folk like Clangers, he's going to be a nervous wreck come match day, he knows fans blame him for other cup calamities, hell, some of us even blame him for QOS and he wasn't even in goals.

 

Could work two ways, he turns in a goalkeeping masterclass talked about for years to come, or a Clangers GTF Part Two Thread on AFC chat.

Would be worse in that I imagine, protest sort of stuff I think.

If it's on a similar scale to the JMG protest then Clangers doesn't have much to worry about.

McInnes has been in 5 semi's with St Johnstone, losing all 5. (3 times as manager)

 

Lets hope he fucks it up for them again and not us.

Jimmy lost his job and we are growing again, so i'd say he has plenty to worry about.

It won't be a masterclass. Reynolds may keep him out of jail.

He went weeks after that so a complete success.
