Hibs end of year up-date

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 won one game and lost three in the league. So, we’ve gone down the table and are currently 4th, seven points behind Celtic.

At Christmas in Spain there is normally a two-week break from football, but in the UK it is traditionally a very busy time for football. Hibs have four games in twelve days, including playing Celtic at Easter Road and Hearts in the New Year derby at their stadium. It’s a moment of the year when a win or a loss can affect the final place of a team in the league. So, I hope we have some luck in the four games.

Wotherspoon shoots to score a great winning goal

Speaking about Hearts and derby games, one fantastic thing happened this month. On Sunday 2nd December, Hibs played Hearts at Easter Road in the 4th round of the Scottish Cup – remember the cup we lost so disastrously to Hearts last season? Well, this time we won! Only 1-0, but it all counts. We got a little bit of revenge. It was the biggest crowd of the season so far – 17,052 supporters.
