There’s a ticket behind the desk at Waverley for you Heckingbottom choo choo

Sunday's derby.  I have never been so underwhelmed going into a derby as I was yesterday.  Other games, yes, but not this fixture.  I got to my seat about kick-off, which is about normal these days.  Already the thought of going for chips was luring me away from the game. Roll on three hours and … Continue reading There’s a ticket behind the desk at Waverley for you Heckingbottom choo choo

Mind the Gap

It's been a couple of good weeks for us Hibby's hasn't it? We were going to get stuffed by the so called "big" team. Big at talking absolute guff maybe. Didi I believe we could hold onto a one-nil lead for 87 minutes? Nope.  Glad to have been proven wrong though.  Absolutely delighted.  Was I … Continue reading Mind the Gap

Hibs semi-final loss is no fail and please don’t steal our seats on Tuesday

Well, Hibbys, not to be I'm afraid. Before I start this blog can I ask you, dear reader, to remember back a fortnight when I cut the blog short because of an injury to my finger.  Well, that injury healed nice and well and I was able to not even have a dressing on.  However, … Continue reading Hibs semi-final loss is no fail and please don’t steal our seats on Tuesday

Second fifth round Derby defeat puts Hibs in charge of the City

I'd been buzzing all week for this derby.  Whatever I've been doing it's been there in my mind, somewhere in my mind there was a rendition of Hibs, Hibs or Here We Go, Two in a Row going on.  I was also singing Hibs, Hibs but using other words like "Clips, Clips" and when at … Continue reading Second fifth round Derby defeat puts Hibs in charge of the City

Ploughing the Tynecastle field, Hibs, Hibs woah oh oh oh oh oh

Another cup run, another fifth round meeting with Hearts at Tynecastle, another draw, another replay at Easter Road.  Another seethe from Hearts fans who can only come at us with "celebrating a draw". Watching on TV Sunday it was clear that Hibs fans were backing our team.  The best I have heard in a while.  … Continue reading Ploughing the Tynecastle field, Hibs, Hibs woah oh oh oh oh oh

Snatching a draw from the jaws of defeat

With a massive Cup Derby coming up in a weeks time it was pretty much guaranteed that Hibs would do something insane while Hearts seem to have upped their game. In the fourth minute our defence went slapstick, didn't have a clue what was happening.  Ross Laidlaw watched his defence crumble in front of him … Continue reading Snatching a draw from the jaws of defeat

Derby defeat but Hibs should feel no shame

Derby day in Edinburgh.  Traditionally not our favourite day.  Some dread it, some live for it.  All of us go into it with that same hope.  We will win.  I will say that about us, regardless of the actual records in Win, Losses and Draws, we still go in believing we can win.  Now, I … Continue reading Derby defeat but Hibs should feel no shame
