Scottish Cup Quater Final Draw

Recommended Posts

Just seen the draw, some fantastic ties.

Its a one off cup game & league tables and form goes out the window. 

Locheedfcno1 is right, Beith will be favourites but Lochee are a top side & have proved that this season.  

Rob Roy should progress from there tie fairly comfortably. 

Carnoustie have a hard task against Talbot but if I remember rightly they were unlucky not to cause an upset against them a few year back.

If Bo’ness turn up then they’ll progress, showed that in previous rounds. Recent weeks they’ve got back on track so I think they’ll have too much for Hurlford 

Prediction - 2 West / 2 East semi final

This season has proved they're a mid-table side if the league table is any sort of guide.

Surprised that the accusations of skwerr bawz hasn't come up given that the four favourites have all avoided each other. 

According to the betting on page 1 of this thread the 2nd fav plays the 4th fav

3 games in hand of teams above them, win them and there sitting  3rd in the league. 

Think that paints a clear picture of where they are.

You silly northern bumcheek. Everybody knows who Darvel are. They did the comics that created Spiderman, Iron-Man & X-Men.

We played without a recognised striker that day, hence the close win. Talbot this season are a totally different team with Wilson and Glasgow hitting 40 goals between them so far this season. Doesn't mean we will win at Carnoustie, of course not, but we will certainly have much more up front this time around barring injuries.

Most of the teams will probably feel the draw has given them a chance to progress. It’s hard to bet against Talbot on their form. Hurlford are in the tie if they play well because Bo’ness rely heavily on set plays which they can plan to combat. Beith have players coming back at the right time, although I always think they are more dangerous on the road. Kirkie of all teams will be expecting safe passage.

Ach, to be honest Talbot won in a canter that day, cruising with a two goal lead, a late consolation gave the home side some heart and a lively finish. As for the much vaunted Lochee win, they parked the bus big style and needed an extremely contentious decision during the shoot out to go through. C'est la vie, we went to theirs a few seasons later and won comfortably. It's all conjecture and all of those teams will have different personel. Beith are a solid West unit and very hard to beat, Lochee will need to be better that what I have seen, or lucky. Talbot, I think they will go through, but the beauty of cup football is you never know.

I think lochee might just be narrow favourites at beith , they seem to be a big noise up east and beith will perhaps enjoy the tag of underdogs come the 17th of march ...........    

Not a hope in hell Lochee will be favourites at Beith

Lochee were better that Medda in the last round.  But I M O that isn't saying much. If Lochee are being classed as a "GOOD SIDE" this season,

all I can say is the standard has dropped considerably.  Again I M O it's Talbots to lose

That's the BU's rumbled boys and we now have no chance, might as well just give the tie to Hurlford.

Beith will take at least 3 off Lochee. If it was a home game for Lochee then I could see they would have a chance, but away to Beith they have no chance.

Beith are a robust and effective team who play together. Lochee will find that out soon. And this is coming from a Talbot fan lol

Unbeaten away since April 16 and even at that we were 3 nil up in the semi so didn't need to win

Ah, so they're assured of winning those next three games then?  

By that logic I should be congratulating them on reaching the Scottish Cup final.

Yeah, in the Scottish only which is only about 5 or 6 ties. Overall unbeaten away from home since December 2016 which is far more impressive. Don't have the stats to hand but will be at least 30 games.

How can you say lochee have no chance?? They are in the tie so have a chance. Lochee play together as well It’s all about opinions though. I feel sometimes the west just discard the east teams. There are some really good east teams who do really well. I agree beith are favourites but think it’s out of order saying beith will take 3 off lochee especially people who don’t watch them every week. Hope the beith players honk it will be a walk in the park. They might just be shocked.
