Humble Hibernian, Bulldozer Barça – part 6

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 their manager and things went badly. By the end of the season they had recovered a little. Nothing special.

Hibernian v Barcelona, 24th July 2008, Murryfield stadium, Edinburgh. The game wasn’t played at Easter Road because Murryfield is bigger and more people could see it there. I think it was Pep Guardiola’s first game as manager.

OMG! It's Messi!

Hibs lost 0-6. A friend of mine in Edinburgh, a Hibee too, sent me a text message saying, “Help. Call the police, we’ve been raped!” Now that’s quite heavy, and I’m sorry to include it, but it basically summarises what happened.

Goals – Gudjohnsen minute(s) 5 + 18, Messi 16, Pedro 28, Bojan 49, and Toure 67. It was 0-4 at half-time! We were so bad! It was a surprise that Barça didn’t score more goals. At this link you can see Yaya Toure’s goal

There are lots of reports and photos on Internet about this game, e.g.

The teams were:

HIBERNIAN (4-4-2): McNeil; van Zanten, Hogg, Jones, Hanlon; Murray, Stevenson, Shiels, O’Brien; Nish, Fletcher. Substitues: Grof, Canning, Chisholm, Rankin, Cropley, Morais

BARCELONA (4-4-2): Valdes; Dani Alves, Marquez, Pique, Corcoles; Sergio, Vazquez, Gudjohnsen, Pedro; Henry, Messi. Subtitutes: Abraham, Bojan, Caceres, Crosas, Eto’o, Hleb, Jeffren, Keita, Pinto, Yaya Toure.

    Gudjohnsen scored two goals??? Poor Hibs, they had a very bad night! I have read that people were very angry but I hope that now they think that they were the first of a lot of teams that “looked stupid” in Guardiola’s time.
