OK stats gurus.....
When was the last time Celtic and Rangers both missed the League Cup & Scottish Cup Finals in the same year?

I think it brilliant! Getting some other clubs and fans some silverware for all their struggles.

Cup semis. Nicely balanced. 2 from the Relegation half, 2 from the top half. The Draw might end up reflecting the Split.

Hibernian v Dundee United
St Johnstone v St Mirren

Surely Hibs can't stuff up this golden chance.....
They've only won 3 in their history 1887, 1902 and 2016.
Waited 114 years until 2016. Lets grab another please.

Dundee was the only clear winner in the quarter finals, didn't have to resort of penalty shootout over Aberdeen which is only 6 points adrift of Hibs. The other thing that's interesting about Hibs is its 2 socceroos, Irvine scoring one of its 2 goals against Motherwell.

Dundee beaten 0 3 by Ross County, Hibs 0 1 by St Johnstone. Should we read anything into that ?
Only 2 rounds left, so not much will make a difference at this point. 12 points between Aberdeen and St Johnson, most interesting game will be Aberdeen and hibs. Both hibs and Aberdeen have to play Celtic and Rangers respectively.

Regulation will be more interactive. Ross County, Kilmarnock and Hamilton are the only ones who can be regulated at this point. Ross County should be safe with a win against Hamilton, while Kilmarnock will be challenged against St mirren.

I was thinking about the Cup, not the League. Hibs are in Europe already in the League but the Cup is different, it's a pointer to this year's AFL flag.

Is that sung to the tune of "the sash me father wore" ?

Both are out of the Cup, an Evrton supporting Liverpudlian mate of mine reckons Hibs are the best of the 4 remaining. Any commentary on this weekend's home and away and the Cup prelims (using AFL terminology) ?

Big away win for the Staggies, we leapfrog Kilmarnock into 10th and out of the relegation playoff position. Our second-last game for the season is at home against the last placed Hamilton. A win, and a Kilmarnock defeat against St Mirren and the Staggies live to fight another season.

Could Dundee have had their minds on the semis, a sho at not only the Cup but a place in Europa? Nobody wants to get a card or injured ?
