Home tie v Aberdeen or Kilmarnock. Got to be happy with that. Great chance of another day out at Hampden!

If we beat St Mirren which I think we will, then we have nothing to fear from Aberdeen or Killie, :)

I point this out ever single game we play. Grimshaw always tries to tuck in and always, and I mean every single game, leaves their winger no matter what team with hundreds of room. They invariable always have plenty of time to receive the ball, turn and run at our defence. Dont know how many times Gallagher has had to come out and cover for Grimmy

Not just Grimshaw. It’s the exact same on the other side. Must be team orders

Could have been a LOT worse. Although I wonder if we play better away from home these days. Still need to win the replay but short of having ICT or possibly St Johnstone that is probably best we could hope for. On paper Hearts but glad we avoided them. 
Nice to get a home tie for a change.

This should be a good motivator for the replay. A home QF is a great carrot.

I think I read that all four QFs are on TV so we might get the Saturday night slot again.

We shouldn't be looking beyond St Mirren at this point but if we do get through he have a decent chance of getting to the semi finals

Having a look around people seem to think that due to other fixtures it's likely to be Hibs vs ICT Friday night, Hearts vs Rangers Saturday lunchtime,  Us/Midden vs Sheep/Killie Sunday lucntime, Saints vs Celtic Sunday afternoon.

As said it’s important we concentrate on St Mirren first, they have improved and are more than capable of winning at our place.

The fact that it continues to happen and players don't get dropped suggests to me that the manager wants our full backs to tuck in...

I don't remember much about that game, but I remember the extra time goal.

Yeah you're correct. Two games on Premier Sport (Obviously they will pick Old Firm as I think they have first pick of games) then the other two matches on BBC.

As my mates joke....that great team from 1993 to 1995 was superb apart from fact we had 'a guy'in goal........yet a highly rated goalkeeper coach

Woods was far worse than Gardner.

Spot on. In 35 years of going to FP he’s by far worst I’ve seen.....
