Surely the bigger stadia the better, get as many in as possible..... mind you this is the SFA so they will probably look at cappielow
Don't understand the logic in having the game at Pittodrie. So let's have thousands of fans from both Edinburgh and Perth travel all the way up to Aberdeen. If it's not played at Hampden then surely Murrayfield has to be the sensible option? I know we'll be able to travel more freely soon but having thousands of people, many of whom won't have been vaccinated doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. A bigger stadium would mean all the Hibs and Saintees season ticket holders should be able to make use of the space in the ground. We won't be able to have sellout grounds for a while.

I agree that Murrayfield seems the sensible option. However, we are dealing with the West of Scotland FA here, who were desperate to keep Hampden through narrow minded parochialism as national stadium and if they'd let slip a final going out of Glasgow they'd also have to start looking at why most refs come from the west of Scotland too, and all the bias that entails.

They're still working out which end of Murrayfield is the Celtic end and which is the Rangers end, going 'does not compute, does not compute'.

Scottish Cup Finals are played at Hampden Park. If it isn't safe for the supporters to go there, I can't see how it can be safe for them to go to Pittodrie. Furthermore, I don't see what it has to do with Aberdeen and they shouldn't be sticking their noses into it.

What would be fair would be using a stadium that can safely accommodate all this season's ST holders from Hibs and St Johnstone with adequate safe distancing between them. The only such stadium in Scotland is Murrayfield.

It's Hampden for tradition (which actually means Glasgow FA bias) or Murrayfield for logic and common sense (neither of which concepts find any place in the mindset of any member of the SFA). Actually, I'd rather have it at Hampden; it just feels wrong for the game to be played elsewhere.

(Actually in some ways it would make more sense to hold it at Livingston than Pittodrie - it's roughly mid-way between Perth and Edinburgh.)

The Scottish Cup final shouldnae be played at Aberdeens' ground.

Its a shit hole. If its got to the stage where Aberdeen is the only place it can be staged - thats a ridder for scottish fitba. Players dinnae get the chance tae win the cup at the national stadium, so that a few hundred fans can get in? nah

We'd all go anywhere tae see the Hibs lift the old lady.... but that wasnae my point

I understand that you and along with 30,000 others would jump at the chance to attend a Scottish Cup Final to see the Hibs.

That doesnae change anything. It shouldnae be staged at Aberdeens ground. Its the Scottish Cup final. The second oldest football final, and the oldest fitba trophy in the world.

I agree.

While making the journey and getting to see it sounds great.
It should be played in the big ground on the big pitch.
Nicer pitch too.

Only 8 working days to organise the venue, amount of supporters allowed, who would be eligible to get a ticket, getting the tickets printed and dispersed etc. Looks a bit tight to me but hopefully doable.

Only the headings are similar. The content is very different. I reckon I just give up my pre and post match threads, written every game to stimulate discussion on an often dead website and let you and others do it.
Please don't I think they are fantastic.

The pre match is always considered and thoughtful and most certainly gets us thinking and discussing the the game.

The post match report is always balanced and informative.

for someone who lives in the south of England this is the only place i can really get to discuss Hibs with people who are knowledgeable and care about Hibs

Please don't stop.

Should it be played at Pittodrie, no!! Would I go if I could get a ticket, absolutely and credit to Aberdeen for making the offer.

I would bet my house that if either of the Arse Cheeks were in the Final fans would be in attendance.

It should not come down to whether it is cost effective to move it somewhere else. It is the showpiece to the season and supporters of both clubs should be allowed to attend (socially distant).

Wembley is free on the 22nd!!

I’m ina similar position, great to have this to discuss Hibs. Down here, the only football that exists is the premier league which is fair enough but their arrogant view of anything else means not many to chat with about hibs
