Come on the BHOYS!!!!!! I may be an ex-fifer but I'm Celtic born and bred (as well as an Evertonian)
 
We should be able to sort you Fifers out even if we're a bit below Par :lol:
Hope plenty of your guys turn out at Hampden though and enjoy the day (if not the result)
How tasty are these words gonna be if we happen to lose :?

On past form Celtic should comfortably win.

However a closer look at recent form shows that Celtic have only won twice in the seven games they have played in April whereas the Pars are on a bit of form. It'll be a hard game but I predict Celtic to win 2-1.

Should be interesting to see the dress rehearsal at Celtic Park this weekend. I wonder if both managers will put out their strongest sides or will they keep something in reserve for the final itself. Celtic will be hurting after losing their unbeaten record to Aberdeen and they also have the title party that day so I reckon Dunfermline will be in for a hard afternoon.

On behalf of a certain son of mine Alec - I have to say Celtic :D

Personally might shout for the Pars just to add colour to an otherwise GREEN house ???

You seem such a good parent Dave but every family has a black sheep.
3-2 to the Pars. :wink:

Were you at the game caller.

A much changed Celtic side with seven recognised starters rested for next week. Even at that we laid seige to your goal for 90 minutes. Credit to the Pars though, Stillie played magnificent (why are you letting hime go), and they had two attacks in the game and scored with both.

Anyway things will be different at Hampden when there's something to play for and a full strength Celtic team hungry to win it. I've changed my prediction - 3-0 to the Celts.

Fair enough John--we only rested our strikeforce probably resulting in us only getting 2 goals.I'll change my prediction also now to 3-1 the Pars.Band rehearsal prevented me going :D

Isn't that 8 games without a win now for Celtic...? :D
Not quite Bruce. We beat Kilmarnock 1-0 two weeks ago to clinch the league, that was four games ago. Since then we've lost to Aberdeen, drawn with Hearts and lost to Dunfermline. I think the statistic you're thinking of is 2 wins in our last 8 games. However, statistics are open to interpretation, you could also say we've suffered 2 defeats in our last 35 league games, or 2 defeats in our last 79 games at Celtic Park, or 5 defeats overall at Celtic Park in the four years since MON took control.
