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 with Espanyol? It’s important, but it’s not the most important game of the year. ‘Los clásicos’ are the most important games. (And Champions League finals, and winning La Liga and…) For Hibs, the best games are always against Celtic and Rangers. Normally we lose, but sometimes we play really well, like we can, and we win.
In the history of ‘the classic’ matches, certain games stay in the memory. For example, when Barça scored five goals and everyone waved their hands in the air.
But, the most important game for Hibernian is always against our city rivals – Heart of Midlothian FC, Hearts. They play in maroon-coloured strips. It’s the most depressing colour in the world. I hate it! (Even more after the Final.)
