Hibs v Livi (Betfred Cup) Tues 7.45 ko

Post by Liviforever on Sun Sep 17, 2017 12:28 pm

This would be massive if we could win this, a semi final place with tv money to give us a huge cash boost for one, but that is a long way off, with us having to get past Hibs first. They've drawn their last 3 games and aren't any better than Motherwell, who we held our own against pre season, I really think we have a chance here, We'll have a lot less possession than them but that suits us really, we set ourselves up to defend and hit on the counter, as long as we stay focussed and play our normal game we'll frustrate them and we'll get our chances.

Will be interesting to see how Hoppy will set us up, if he'll play 1 up front as a target man for an out ball, if he does then Danny could play in midfield just behind big Toddy, Robinson also plays well in that position, so plenty of options. Would imagine Keaghan will be back in to give us a bit more grit in midfield and our usual midfield 3 will help us break up Hibs play to make it easier for our defence.

Actually looking forward to this, absolutely no pressure on us, we'll have our game plan to frustrate them early on and stop them scoring, so their fans will turn on them, and we have the players to come on and win the game same as we did against Falkirk if it goes to ET, bring it fecking on. bounce bounce bounce bounce

Going to shock you all and go for 2-1 Livi win, fg 52 mins.

Your optimism knows no bounds.

They won the 2nd tier in a canter (after a wee blip when United threatened to overtake them) last season & have started fairly well for a promoted side. They also have a very good cup record over the last couple of years so I really can't see anything other than a home win - sadly.

Aye well that's why i'm sitting top of the prediction league and you're no. Cool

Outside of Celtic there's nobody that can't be beaten, esp in a cup game, nothing to fear from Hibs, they couldn't even beat Dundee ffs. Smile

Even Celtic can be beaten - I agree there is nothing to fear but all things being equal & both teams playing to their best, then we will lose. But anything can happen in football.

I am sacrificing my prediction league prospects for the good of the club - they usually do ok when I say they won't

I reckon we are going to have to be really at the top of our game tommorow night to have any chance of an upset there.The bookies already have us down as no hopers and i sincerely hope that Hoppy relays that message to the players pre match.Honestly think our best bet would be to take them to pens here which would mean they havent overwhelmed us during the match and will be seriously frustrated.Theres a massive carrot being dangled in front of us whith a cup semi at stake and the financial reward that would bring to the club although we are at least guarenteed a healthy pay cheque after this.They all said we couldnt do it at Hampden all those years ago against them .Surely we cant do it to them again.Can we?!!! Shocked

It goes without saying, but a win here would be magic. Would definitely be our biggest since the 2004 final - the financial incentives are massive, and the players and management deserve a chance to get to Hampden given all that's happened the past few seasons. Hibs aren't the infallible team their initial form this season suggested, but on their day they could deliver a pasting to us. It's going to be one of those nights, I think.

4-0 Hibs, FG 9 mins.

Nae danger we're getting 4 goals put past us, might get beat but we wont get a doing. It'll be a tight game. They wont get the room to run riot, Hoppy isn't daft, he knows what Hibs would do to us if we gave them the chance.

Can't decide how I feel about this game, one minute I'm confident we can take it to extra time at the very least and the next I'm fearing a thumping.

Hibs have had good results against lower league teams (5-0 v Ayr, 3-0 v Alloa, 6-1 v Arbroath, 4-0 v Montrose), and will look to bounce back from their recent disappointments. Hopefully they'll look at us as an easy win though and we'll catch them off guard, but I honestly can't make my mind up about how this one will pan out.

3-1 Hibs, FG 29 mins.

Just seen the starting line up, Longridge and Mullin out for Rafa and Knox, GULP!!

Not sure how defensively solid that'll be, certainly interesting starting 11 with Mullen on the bench and Toddy in defence again too.

Twitter feed suggests it's all Hibs TBF. Alexander made about 4 or 5 saves before they scored

2-2 already

Sounds like ref awarded Hibs a corner from a deflection only he saw and they scored from the set piece.

DeVita off injured in 42 mins after assist & goal - they were probably out to get him, thugs jocolor

Mullin on for Knox, starting to look a better line up now, just need Mullen on.

Doing well to hang on here, going to be asking a lot taking this to pens if we can get to ET, really need to hit them with a sucker punch from a set piece and win it in the 90 mins.
