Trying to Make Sense of Things – Part 1: Football

Well, there are a number of things to talk about this time so let me begin with... Football - Scottish Let's start with Scottish football and the absolute state that it's in at the moment.  It generally is in a state but after the vote to end the league season due to the coronavirus pandemic … Continue reading Trying to Make Sense of Things – Part 1: Football

Can’t win a derby if our team is too soft

Last week I was annoyed with the SFA for the possible postponement of the derby if there had to be a replay of the Scottish Cup match between Hearts and Club 2012.   Then coronavirus started appearing and I imagined the derby either getting played behind closed doors or postponed.  All I wanted was for this … Continue reading Can’t win a derby if our team is too soft

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 Canyon

There's something I have been meaning to do in the last twenty-four hours...oh yes, that's it...LAUGH! Laugh at Craig Levein and his ridiculous "natural order" comments.  Laugh at him for just being HIM! Despite Hearts putting us out the Scottish Cup earlier in the year (you'd think they'd won the Champions League) we still have … Continue reading Mind the Canyon

Mind the Gap….Again!

Hiya Hibees! How are you all? You should be bloody dancing.  I am.  Well, I was until the old, dodgy knee gave up.  As it does. Saturday 17th of February 2018.  Hibernian v Aberdeen.  I wasn't sure about this fixture.  It could be a win or it could be an absolute embarrassment.  I was leaning … Continue reading Mind the Gap….Again!

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

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

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 … Continue reading Hibs: The Last Three Years – Part Two

Cup romance must wait, Hibs need to woo the League

'Here we go, two in a row'.  It's got a nice ring about it.  The cup romance is still with us.  We're still in love with the whole experience.  Having failed to win it in 114-years we now face the fairytale of winning it for the second time.  Oh what a time to be alive. … Continue reading Cup romance must wait, Hibs need to woo the League

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
