Does anyone agree with Barry Ferguson? would you rather have 7 games within a 25 day period or 3 weeks rest? Personally I wouldn't want to be hibs if they finish 3rd, as we know each of these games are a final. I'd rather have our feet up, fully fit and rested squad is better than one that has just gone through a few play off matches.

Look at last season, we were clearly shattered against a Motherwell team who looked well rested and in good shape. I wouldn't want to be hibs right now, however, if Raith beat them.

I agree. That is on the assumption that they make the final playoff game.

Both can work for and against, with all those games they should be match sharp but may tire from maybe 60+ minutes, a 3 week break may make teams a bit off the sharpness needed however teams will no doubt have more in the tank to go the full 90 after a good rest. only time will tell which is better, for our sakes I hope that it's 3 weeks without a game that comes through in the end.

We are playing Tottenham before the final though, so that's a bonus.

It's a difficult one. The general consensus is the layoff is best but the guys need to go out there on cup final day with the attitude they showed in the semi. I fancy us to win by two or three goals.
