Strachan is a bogey and Hibs welcome the Sheep to Easter Road

Well, that international break was worth it… The thing is…it should have been worth it.  If Strachan had not bent over backwards to not use players like John McGinn, Leigh Griffiths and Callum McGregor.  With no justification I might add. Then the Scotland mis-manager, rather than blame himself for his own starting 11 error, decides […]

Roadworks: Now GEMMAONLINE.CO.UK and other changes

Take me back to when life was simple and technology didn’t exist! Well, I don’t really mean that as such but this last couple of weeks have been a ‘mare with this blog. My original web address expired before I could renew it and this led to a general nightmare with 123 reg.  I flagged […]

We’re about to run out of Bubble Wrap

There are suggestions by people who have studied such stuff that schools should ban scrums and tackling in rugby and also tackling in football. That’s right, don’t have tackles and scrums so when the children head into adulthood and join clubs they haven’t a clue how to play the game properly and in time the […]

Girls don’t like boys, girls like Simon Murray

I’ve had to use the latest addition to our song book as a title because I’ve been singing it since Saturday afternoon.  If not out loud then in my head. Shouldn’t complain though. The song I had going through my prior to that was Skinny-Malinky-Long-Legs.  Don’t ask. On to Saturday afternoon.  It rained but then […]

New League Cup Format – does it work?

Hello and welcome to a new football season.  I took a short break from writing about Hibs because while there was no football there was the usual flap about signing new players.  The usual rumours and “in the know”.  Just not worth writing about.

United as One

Dear Radicalised Nutters, I’ve just finished watching the concert organised by Ariana Grande.  It was called One Love Manchester.  It was fabulous.  It sent a message out, something you won’t understand. As you well know, 22 people, mostly young people, died when one of your ilk decided to detonate himself after an Ariana Grande concert […]

Hibs: The Last Three Years – Part Two

From Part One; Then it happened.  At 90+2 Liam Henderson drifted in a corner that club captain, David Gray headed into the net.  Hibs were on the brink of history. A footballing miracle.  Hibs had dumped that 114-year hoodoo. We’d won the Scottish Cup.  At last, at last, at last. Hibs fans ran onto the […]

Hibs: The Last Three Years – Part One

I wasn’t sure what to write about given that I wasn’t in Ayr on Saturday and haven’t really seen much footage of it.  It was a good win.  A good shut out for Ross Laidlaw and the team.  It’s also landed us on 70 points, not Hearts nor Rangers have 70 points this season.  Only […]

Third Time Lucky! Hibs are the Championeeeeeees! 🏆

What.  A.  Day. What a day Saturday was. Finally, after three long years, Hibs have gained automatic promotion from the Championship to the Scottish Premier League.  We’ve done it.  We’ve actually done it. What a journey it’s been just over the last three years.  Another bumpy ride on the rollercoaster that is Hibernian, but I […]
