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

Sectarianism has had its time

Well, it's 2019 and here we find ourselves talking about many things we should have to be talking about, and guess what? In Scotland, rather than dealing with problems brought about because of the day and age, we're talking about Sectarianism.  In football.  Again. Why "again"? Well, because we never deal with it when it … Continue reading Sectarianism has had its time

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

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

More glory at Tynecastle for Hibs and a sozzled Sir Rod

I cannot be the only Hibs fan thinking how lucky an escape we had by not taking on Ian Cathro.  He was in the mix after the departure of T**** B****** but thankfully the job went to Alan Stubbs. Watching Cathro's recent work and some of his interviews I can't see that he would have … Continue reading More glory at Tynecastle for Hibs and a sozzled Sir Rod

SFA and FA should defy FIFA

FIFA, that well respected governance of world football, have again brought a negative story upon themselves.  This time it's put a stamp on Scotland and England displaying poppies.  Why? Because FIFA think they are a political statement. I'm not even sure why anyone listens to FIFA any more.  A federation rife with corruption which I … Continue reading SFA and FA should defy FIFA

When Exuberance Won…

Sigh.  Another day and another "woe is me" statement from Ibrox.  Poor old (new) Rangers.  What on earth did they do to deserve such a tough run of luck? No one there can understand it.  They got beaten in the Scottish Cup Final on May 21st when it was their right to win it.  Every … Continue reading When Exuberance Won…

From two-nil to Conrad Logan, a week with Hibs

Here we go.  Time to try and figure out Hibs again.  As if there's any solving that enigma.  Hibs fans have been through every emotion this season and it's not over. Sitting in Easter Road on Tuesday night I thought "we're back".  We played exceptionally well for the most part and, of course Jason scored … Continue reading From two-nil to Conrad Logan, a week with Hibs
