    I'm not a season ticket holder, but it should only be those who do have season tickets who are eligible.
    They're the ones who showed commitment to the club, so they deserve some reward for that. You couldn't guarantee who would be getting the ticket otherwise.

    Yes, indeed. 5th place guarantees Europe, albeit at an earlier stage of qualifiers than it would be for winning the cup. A cup win would guarantee European football until December.

    Me and you the same...62 and supported them since I was ten (well since forever) -  the years of stick I took as a lad growing up in Glasgow and the blank looks I’ve got since moving to south of England in 1984...brilliant just brillliant...I must stop pinching myself it’s starting to hurt...unreal.  What a great performance from the lads today. All round...but Spoony was class, Booth tireless, back three winning (almost) everything...great skills, teamwork and togetherness all over the pitch.

    Away from the Scottish cup thread thought I'd start this as it deserves it's own.
    Rangers will bring back all the big guns and will really fancy their chances. If they play to their strengths and move the ball about at will I don't see us having a shot.
    However............If we we employ that closing down game we did on Wednesday and take the undoubted chances that fall to us we might cause the biggest shock of the season. I think we have to score twice to win this.
    I don't think we get through but something keeps nagging at me that they haven't felt defeat this year - who knows................................

    Winner against St Mirren at the end of December, set up two goals since then.
    Kane hasnt scored since halfway the 16th of January and has set up one goal since then. 
    Melamed needs to start every game, and that means we need to play 2 up top.
    I'm absolutely clueless about why we changed shape today. Completely and utterly pointless.

    I find it a strange team after CD stating we are going for Europe, If that is the case why rest players? If we must rest players do it against the OF

    Don't you think he has been working hard and taking his opportunity? I haven't seen any signs of that not being the case. I don't think it's about workrate, I think it's about the style of player he is. A successful squad needs different types of striker and as far as I can tell Melamed simply isn't the type of striker that CD thinks will work in his preferred formation.
    I don't think throwing strops comes into it. It just makes sense that if he's not going to get picked in our big games, and another club comes in that is going to offer him more money and a chance to play more regularly, it would probably be the right decision for him to make that move.
    Anyway, however we choose to view it, a player like Melamed is probably going to attract interest from all over Scotland, England and beyond, and if Saints can't get him tied down quickly it's going to be difficult to hold onto him.

    I think it's pretty clear why Melamed doesn't start every game: CD doesn't think he can play as the single striker in a 3-4-3, which remains his preferred formation. Why would Melamed sign a new contract with us when he basically knows now that whatever he does, however many goals he scores, when it comes to our very biggest games he's not going to get on the pitch?
    Right now he could easily move to one of our rivals for nothing and become an absolute star for them.

    £300,000 prize for winning, pre and post merchandise sales will be fantastic, chunk of prize money quite rightly will go to team and management but winning will mean huge unbudgeted Bertie bonus, todays amazing win will be fantastic for the stability of the club going forward.

    Dominated that.....scoreline didn't help the nerves though.
    Melamed missing was disappointing but Davidson got it right....perhaps he figured Livi would be too physical for him. Not for me to argue, we won.
    Rooney's stock must be growing. Solid defensively, effective going forward and our first aerial threat in the box for what seems like decades. What a turn around for him....dropped to the bench then got his place and took it. Not sure of Scotland calls are a bit premature but we'll struggle to hang on to him if he carries on with this form.
    Dare I say that Macnamara's recall was the best bit of transfer business for us? Loved Danny but Rooney seems more of a threat overall.
