The man who would be King.

Well the waiting is over. We’ve made it to another final, and at some cost to Hibs who really didn’t show up on the day.

That’ll be third time we’ve scored four against them this season. Now we’ve a date in May back at Hampden Park to face tiny Gretna and the last hurdle. But I reckon that won’t be as easy as this was.

I had three calls from my brother in Johannesburg during the match. He seemed even more nervous than me, having seen us capitulate too often to our city rivals when he was a youngster.

The team all played well but the game really belonged to Paul Hartley. His first ever hat-trick, and in a cup semi to boot.

I’ll try and be kind to my friends Will, Gerry and Neil, all rabid green men, still waiting to break that 105 year hoodoo. (No smug smiles, remember.)
