I count this is Talbot's 15th final?

Won 11, lost to lithgae, shotts n glens?

Since winning in 1985,  this will be their 20th time in semis or more in 35 years, as they have lost semis  to tayport twice, Renfrew, boness n ballieston!

I could be wrong!

Talbot lost to Baillieston in the semi-final at Rugby Park in 1984.

And Bo'ness United in 1983 semi-final also at Rugby Park.

I remember both of these. Even as a young fella it was really disappointing but those were the foundations being built. 

Little did we know what was to follow...

Can't see by Talbot for this. 1-0 or 10-0 it has Talbots name all over it. Then again I said that last year and look what happened

I think Baillieston had Dougie Arnott and Crawford Baptie playing for them. Bo'ness had Lex Shields what a player.

It was Andy Walker and George Clark up front with Baptie in the middle.Dougie was at Lok before he signed for Motherwell.

Sad about Baillieston as used to enjoy our trips over East end to Station Park

Can’t see Hurlford being strong enough as Talbot just keep pulverising teams in games until they break them.

I remember talking to Talbot legend Kenny Paterson before the Shotts final in 2012. He said "look at the way they're warming up, we're gonna annihilate them!" Form is always out of the window with the Final, it counts for nowt.

It's a one off game. I remember talking to Shotts fans before the game in 2012 and told them they'd be the one celebration at time up as I wasn't confident that we'd do it. Strangely enough I said the same on 2002 v Linlithgow.

Anything can happen in a single game of football

That was the point I was making. I for one didn’t expect Afton to win the Scottish Junior Cup last June. We did, and a beautiful day was had.
So yeah Hurlford can upset the odds.

I just can’t see it though

I doubt many would have fancied Hurlford getting to the final with the League form they’ve had. They still have some talented players and love him or hate him, Henderson knows how to win games. That said I’d be very disappointed if we lose to Hurlford, if we can play our game, it should see them off.

Will be an interesting game on Monday night, not sure how much we’ll be able to read into it. Also a big well done to Logan, our first academy player to get a call up to the first team and was very unlucky not to get on the score sheet. Fantastic boost for the whole academy no doubt :thumsup2

You were in a bit of a minority because most fancied you by the time the final came round. You had just won the league and Talbot were struggling badly for goals.

How are they planning to fit circa 20,000 in there?

No time for Hurlford, hope Talbot pump them and that's all I gotta say about that.
