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
New Songs for 2013
Everybody enjoys listening to music so why not try using music to help you learn English? Songs are a great way to learn new vocabulary, structures and expressions. Song lyrics will stick in your mind along with the rhythms and melodies.
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
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.

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
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
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
Back in part 1 of this little football story, I mentioned that an ex-Barça player later played for Hibs. Here’s his story.

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
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
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
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,

Hey. I’m Calum, I work in Sants. I’m from Edinburgh, the capital of Scotland. It's a lovely city, in a lovely country. The people are very friendly, but the weather is very bad. The football is very bad too! There are two bad teams in

Building paper airplanes and flying them is great fun. However, what would be even cooler is building the world’s largest one and taking it to the skies to see how long it could stay in the air. That, is exactly what a 12-year old and
