We asked you to select your ideal starting line-up via the Edinburgh Evening News social media channels, and also predicted the line-up ourselves but the team is now known and here’s what you said to the manager’s selection – which doesn’t include Peter Haring, Olly Lee or Josh Ginnelly, but does include Aidy White and Andy Halliday.

@SamuelH1872: “Andy Halliday winner incoming.”

@KevinFraserPP: “Get them in the second half, pity big Pete not ready.”

Jimmy Brown: “Future team of legends to go with the other teams to lift the cup.”@Paphos_16: “Very disappointing not to see Ginnelly or Haring in. Really needed them starting.”

Graeme McGinty: “We should be going for the jugular right from the off, Ginnelly should be starting, and Halliday for goodness sake...”

Mcgarvieahs AhsStuart: “Think this could be the Jamie Walker show.”

@gavinwallace30: “Easy to see the game plan then. Keep it tight and try Nick something late on with Ginnelly pace when legs are tiring.”

Jamie Headspeath: “Surprised to see Berra start, let's hope he makes up for last year. Walker to run the show ! Cmon the jambos let's get right into this lot.”

@tatimalk: “Keep it tight for the first half... three wingers on the bench.”

@CornerRadish: “Delighted to see Irving in there. Aidy a surprise starter. Nothing to lose everything to gain.”

Lynn Aoki: “Just give everything, lads! Leave it all on the pitch. It's all we ask!”

@jambodave81: “Doesn’t matter what the starting team is. Get out there,in their faces, first whistle to last whistle. Let’s do this for the orchestrated vote that demoted us but more importantly let’s win this for Big Zal and his family.”

Kyle Lambton: “C'mon lads do it for not just us big Zal as well c'mon the Hearts.”

Donnie MacKenzie: “Where there's smoke there's fire. Let’s set the heather alight in memory of big Zal by pure determination.”
