    If it wasn't for bad luck we would get no ****ing luck in Cup draws at all.

    That's us out.

    It's a 50-50 tie, Hearts aren't great at the minute and are always a weaker prospect away from Tynie.

    However, to get the only 50-50 tie when you'd have fancied us to beat anyone else is clearly unfortunate.

    Keep it in perspective though, missing out on a cup run is a shame but the LC requires mind-boggling good fortune for us to win. The Scottish always throws up the chance of some big teams going out early, the seeding here basically guarantees the OF a start in the QFs and the chance of neither of them winning it from there is remote.

    It's a home draw. Bring it on. Hearts are all over the place at the moment. I'm confident we can get a result.

    Welcome to the new season my man ... as Private Frazer used to say; "We're doomed I say ... Doomed!"

    Hardly a surprise to see that BT$port has chosen to cover the match and that kick off will be on Friday 16 August at 7.45pm.

    Hearts have confirmed the signing of Naismith. They're a much different - ie better - side when he's fit.

    And if we need a reminder - which we hardly do! - of where we are in the grand scheme of things, they've done so by handing a four-year deal to a 32-year-old who had two knee operations last season and hasn't played since February. That must be performance-based, surely!?

    Given his age and injuries I suppose it's a gamble but Naismith is still a top drawer player and even at 32/33 is still one of the best players in the league so it's no surprise Hearts took the gamble to tie him up.
