The Pain Continues

Another year, another cup final defeat! There was green and white on the cup, but it was the green and white of Celtic, not Hibs. However, it was nothing like last year's humiliation. This time we were beaten 0-3 by a very good Celtic team, full of

Cabs Cup Chance – again!

Hello friends. Here I am back again to bring you up-to-date with the fortunes of Hibs since the start of 2013. In the last Hibs update at the end of 2012, I told you all how the team was starting to play badly, and that they

Hibs end of year up-date

The fortunes of Hibs since I last wrote back in November have been up and down, as usual. If you remember, we were top of the league. One week later we got beat by Dundee, the bottom team. Celtic won and went top again. Since then, we’ve

Top for a week – at least!

Last weekend, both Hibs and Celtic played on Sunday, though Hibs played first. At home, at Easter Road, Hibs beat Dundee United 2-1 in a hard and difficult game. An important win. Two hours later, Celtic played St. Johnstone at home. Celtic were coming from their good

New season, new spirit

Welcome back to the obsessive world of Hibernian FC. After the disappointing 1-5 loss in the cup final to neighbours and rivals Hearts, and after just escaping relegation, it was obvious that Hibs had to change a lot of things for the new season. The team also

Humble Hibernian, Breathtaking Barça – part 7

Okay, this is the end of the story, but it isn’t really about Barça. This is the fantastic final part that every Hibee dreams about. (Even though you all know what happened in the Cup Final this year.) You know how Barça have a derby game

Humble Hibernian, Bulldozer Barça – part 6

Back in part 3 of this story I mentioned that Hibs played Barça again. Let me tell you the horrible story of that encounter. Hibs finished 6th in the league in 2007-2008. They were leaders at that start of the season, but in January, they changed

Humble Hibernian, Bonnie Barça – part 5

Back in part 1 of this little football story, I mentioned that an ex-Barça player later played for Hibs. Here’s his story. His name is Steve Archibald, he’s Scottish. Do you know him? Ask your dad, or your grandad, they might remember him. He became famous in

Hibernian 1 – Hearts 5

This time there are no photos, videos or songs. We lost the Scottish Cup final, and we lost badly. It could hardly be worse. We lost two early goals. Our defence was a comedy. We lost a penalty (that wasn't a penalty) and had a player sent

Humble Hibernian, Background Barça – part 4

Okay sorry, this isn’t about Barça. It’s about their greatest rivals, Real Madrid. I think you’ll like it. Hibs v Real Madrid, Easter Road, October 7th, 1964. In theory, a ‘friendly’ game. To give you some context to this game I’m going to tell you how amazing

Humble Hibernian, Bully Barça – part 3

The second game at Easter Road stadium was a classic European night. 45,000 people were there to watch. Joe Baker scored first to put Hibs in the lead. Martinez and Koscis scored to make it 1-2 at half-time for Barcelona. In the second half Hibs scored

Humble Hibernian, Brilliant Barça – part 2

Hibernian played Barcelona in 1960 / 61. Just before they played Hibs, Barcelona had drawn 2-2 with Real Madrid in El Bernabéu. Then Barça won 2-1 in the Nou Camp in the second game, but that was in the European Cup, today’s Champions League. That year,
