Not a big fan of Hampden as it is but glad to see the SFA have seen sense to remain there. Last nights attendance was proof that moving to Murrayfield would have been a waste of time, we struggle to fill Hampden never mind moving to an even bigger stadium. Now that the SFA are buying the ground they have said they'll look at redeveloping it, they she should never have kept it as an oval when they redeveloped it in the 90's.

Maybe we let him go too early? Naisy with his 8th of the season.:)

Much as I like him and at the time it didn't look great business replacing him with Niasse, he hasn't been great since he left although I think he's had a couple of injuries. Proving now that he's still a level above the Scottish Premiership though, looks like Norwich could use his goals as well.

Good start for Hearts, five wins from five. Although as sure as death and taxes someone always runs the Old Firm (Celtic at the moment) close then fall away as the season goes on.

It was a little bit tongue in cheek, me saying bring him back. He's a great lad though and it's great to see him doing well. I think we all know, it's unlikely they'll win it. I rember Aberdeen when they had Ferguson as manager and they broke the mould. He'll be retiring in a few years, a cheeky Scottish title would round it off nicely for him. Wishful thinking for him really. :)

Seems like yesterday they didn't even know if theyd be selling tickets for a game 2 weeks away, let alone naming ridiculous prices!

I know. It was my nephew who was telling me, he was going to buy the home top but it's £65! Says they're talking the piss out of the fans, there obviously a bit of optimisim around the club so they're just taking the piss out of the fans, there's only about 3000 general sale tickets available so they hiked the prices up. He's bought a ticket for the game this weekend, he didn't get a season ticket this year but his season ticket was £340 last year for 19 games, one of his mates got one in the main stand and it's £600 this season.

Although they way they've spent and added to the wage bill this year I still think there could be a sting in the tale for Rangers yet.

Imagine there being a recent example of why you should be more careful as a football club.

Celtic starting the season well  :thumbsup:

Must be Dembele's fault for wanting to go somewhere bigger...

They'll probably blame the pitch.

Great job Steve Clarke's doing at Killie.

I think Rangers will it make a closer fought thing this season. Probably a bit of complacency at Celtic which Rogers will need to sort.

Hearts are the surprise and really should be six from six but Naismith missed a penalty yesterday.

The SFA making themselves unpopular by scheduling two semis on the same day at the same ground ?
One problem being it's impossible for Aberdeen fans to get there by train ,
not to mention the spectre of 100,000 pissed up old firm fans milling around Hampden .
Busy day for the ' polis ' I'm thinking. 
We are special ,we are Everton.

It's a stupid decision to play them both on the same day although the kick offs are nearly 8 hours apart. I know what you mean about volume of people, although it will only be 50k Old Firm fans and if anything it'll be easier to police than if they were playing each other as they'll be there at different times.
