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

Hibernian

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

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!

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 … Continue reading Girls don’t like boys, girls like Simon Murray

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. I also took a break because, after twenty odd years with … Continue reading New League Cup Format – does it work?

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

Scottish Cup magic ends but the pride in Hibs goes on

"Here we go, two in a row". We sung it and we sung it proud because from the very start of this seasons defence of our cup win we believed we could do it.  And why not? We, as a championship team, had won it last season leaving premiership teams in our wake as we … Continue reading Scottish Cup magic ends but the pride in Hibs goes on

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 … Continue reading Third Time Lucky! Hibs are the Championeeeeeees! 🏆
