Scottish Football Returns

Well, it's back and it's as bonkers as ever. Scottish football. In all its glory. Of course, not all the leagues are back, just the SPL (Scottish Premier League) with the lower leagues set to get underway in October. On the 17th of the month by which time the SPL will have played ten match … Continue reading Scottish Football Returns

Merry ChristRoss…

You ever get a feeling before a game that this is going to be yours? Everyone else laughs at you.  You just know though.  It's about time something went your teams way.  And so, onto Hibernian v Aberdeen at Easter Road, seventh December 2019. One thing that was different on Saturday - I got to … Continue reading Merry ChristRoss…

Bit of a round up

Anyone else make phone calls on speaker phone but sometimes forget they're on speaker phone and a bit of a fart or something? Hope so.  I don't think the person on the other end heard...was a professional call as well.  Maybe they were just being polite. Christmas Dinner Absolutely my most favourite thing about … Continue reading Bit of a round up

And so it goes on…Heckingbottom lingers

Well, can't keep writing it.  We're terrible and Heckingbottom has to go.  It's difficult to think of anything else to say because this has been the case for weeks now. Wednesday night was a little bit different because we went down two goals and actually managed to get a point out of the whole sorry … Continue reading And so it goes on…Heckingbottom lingers

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

The time is now

I don't know whether to be hot or cold.  A week or so ago I was melting around the house in shorts and a vest top.  Now it's the complete opposite, I'm freezing.  The bedroom window is closed at night, the extra blanket is on the bed.  It's like winter came in a week.  This … Continue reading The time is now

Put the singing section back in the east where they belong

There's a lot that can be said about Saturday's Scottish Cup tie between Hibernian and Celtic at Easter Road.  A lot of them not good.  I'm not talking about the match either.  About that, I thought Hibs were really good in the first half, it was competitive.  Second half went a bit awry.  Rare service … Continue reading Put the singing section back in the east where they belong


I am not going to rant here. I haven't written a blog about Hibernian for a little while, so I'm not going to write one that is a complete moan about the beloved Cabbage. However, things are not great, I don't think anyone would deny that. Yes, there are people who will say "just get … Continue reading Hibernian

Hibernian: Goals, chips with sauce and Sir David Gray

Apologies if this blog looks a bit odd.  WordPress tempted me into trying their new editor and, well, I don't have a clue.  Here's to hoping. Saturday 15th September 2018 saw us back at Easter Road after the international break.  A nice, normal, three o'clock kick off.  On a Saturday.  Lovely.  The journey to Easter … Continue reading Hibernian: Goals, chips with sauce and Sir David Gray
