I'm planning on being at the shops, there is no way I'm staying in, if I so much as walk on front of the telly its like I just broke the law

bloody football!!

AliceInUnderpants Sat 16-Apr-16 12:53:01

Dunno. Probably at home relaxing as kids are with their dad. Football is nothing in our house.

OneMagnumisneverenough Sat 16-Apr-16 13:28:25

We don't care about football either. We'll just be doing normal Saturday stuff.

prettybird Sat 16-Apr-16 14:08:58

I'll be with ds who'll be playing rugby. Should be able to get home before the traffic re-starts.

Sleeping grin nightshift tonight.
Not that i care tbh! Not a footy household here either

DH is Celtic daft and is like a cat on a hot tin roof.

He's going to his brother's to watch it and my SIL is coming here.

Superjaggy Sat 16-Apr-16 16:26:00

We are huge football fans here but I'll be out doing something else instead - I can't stand the media frenzy over old firm games and I don't like the hostility between some of the fans.

I was planning on going to the pub with dh to watch it, however both gp on holiday scuppered that, even before I picked up a sickness bug yesterday. So I'll be forced to call sky and renew my sports subscription angry

At home glued to the telly

Hampden

Avoiding town, shawlands and Hamden in general.

I fucking hate it.

Avoiding it like the plague. Family is Celtic daft and I am now at the point where I actively dislike football.

Lidlfix Sat 16-Apr-16 17:06:46

Just installed a home cinema system so getting ready to be invaded bacon rolls and bloody Marys for kick off. Won't watch it myself tension too much and I don't like the "darker" aspects of the fixture sad

Superjaggy Sat 16-Apr-16 17:46:11

ICanSee, is the game not on BBC1? I think they have the rights for all Scottish Cup games.

Superjaggy Sat 16-Apr-16 17:47:55

Enjoy your day at Hampden, Behooven! Despite what all its critics say, I still love a trip to Hampden and it doesn't feel like a proper semi-final or final if it's not played there.

I'm still coming to terms the 4 year break between both teams has come to an end. Thinking of all the domestic violence, fights, and general mayhem to come...

PrimalLass Sat 16-Apr-16 18:01:13

I couldn't give a shiny about it.

ICanSeeForMiles Sat 16-Apr-16 18:10:57

Ooh superjaggy you got me all excited there. Alas I've just checked the listings and it's on sky sports 2 angry

prettybird Sat 16-Apr-16 18:11:34

A friend works alongside GCC's Domestic Violence Unit. She says there is always a significant spike in DV incidents after Old Firm games sad She was delighted to have her work load reduced when the frequency of encounters decreased.

Disclaimer: I'm sure that the supporters on here aren't amongst the culprits smile I know it's the minority of Neanderthals who spoil it for everyone.

Superjaggy Sat 16-Apr-16 18:20:57

Sorry, ICanSee sad

Apparently the police have removed some persistent DV offenders from their homes in Glasgow this week. Can't imagine that applies to many men though, and sadly there will be plenty women (around the country, not just in Glasgow) who will be fearing the wrong result.

I haven't missed league OF fixtures at all over the last 4 years... And I won't be visiting either Celtic Park or Ibrox as an away fan next season either. Too many louts looking for trouble and spoiling it for the real fans.

prettybird Sat 16-Apr-16 18:26:58

ICanSee - you can usually find a Sky games stream on USA Goals or CrickTv (?) so I've been told wink

You have to click through loads of pop ups and make sure to do a malware/virus check afterwards

In the Rangers end cheering hopefully

LunaLoveg00d Sat 16-Apr-16 21:04:07

Didn't even know there was an old form game tomorrow - that's how much attention I pay!

Assuming it's afternoon, I'm taking my daughter to the cinema to see Thr Jungle book

NewStartNewName Sat 16-Apr-16 21:08:24

ICanSee - watch it on Periscope.

We will all be watching on TV, head to toe in blue!
