  1. Given our almost total dominance yet occasionally carelessness, I was actually quite relieved with a point: I was expecting a late breakaway from the Leithers and a totally-undeserved victory. We've maintained our distance from them and I liked our commitment to passing our way around the park. Amazing how often Scott roasted their RB to no final payoff. Polworth and Campbell were particularly good but we were blunt up font, though McIver showed up well against their plough boys. Thought Illic was pretty ineffectual. Hibs were very cynical and seemed to single out Donnelly for The Treatment and he was unlucky to be booked for his first notable foul, given Doidge's and Omeonga's behaviour. The Hibs' assistant manager (John Potter?) seemed to spend the whole game snarking away at the fourth official, always in his lug and standing too close in an intimidating fashion, yet it seemed that Jack Ross was booked for some transgression instead. Nice to see Big Cedric in the POD. Onwards and upwards...
  2. Nice picture and interesting match details. Sad that no film footage seems to have survived, but not surprising given the result. Fortunately, none survives of the next round tie against Airdrie either. *Bites carpet*
  3. We started like Brazil and ended up like Burnbank Athletic. That second half implosion was quite something and surpassed even the embarrassing, panic-ridden meltdowns we witnessed during McGhee's second tenure. I can only hope that performance will prove a massive kick up the jacksy for every one connected to the club. Of course, we had to reserve that performance for a) Accies and b) a larger crowd than normal with potential newbies who will probably never darken our door again. What a boot in the Haw Maws...….
  4. Ooooooooooooooooooooooooooft! That is all! (But has Yodo been on the cherry liqueurs?)
  5. Cue a whole week of Sevco bleating about refereeing decisions going against them and it could be a frustrating afternoon for us. All depends on the calibre of the referee *holds head in hands*. The trick is to not give a flying fruit bat, faites vos jeux and have a right go at the imposters. COYW!
  6. Thought it was just me seeing Berra doing foul shies and yard-stealing. I was assured by the intelligentsia around me in the POD that foul shies are cool, like squinty throw-ins at scrums. As for Steve MacLean, he's always been a diver and whiner and suits Hearts perfectly. The atrocious offside decision today could have cost us dear on another day. Three wins in eight days is excellent and we can rest and get ready for The Hens next Sunday. No reason we can't go one better than The Mutton Molesters.
  7. Sigh. In half a season he's already contributed ten times more than Vigurs ever did, in my opinion. Terrible winning 4-0 when not playing great, innit? Must really piss you off.
  8. I can't remember an easier win against the Tractor Boys for years and years. Defensively there are usually "robust" and "streetwise" but they were pretty poor in the air and looked a whipped team by the end. Tommy W will be worried. Thought our play out of defence was poor in the first half, with simply not enough movement from midfield and the forwards but a wee bit of skill from Hylton made the difference for the cross to Cole. Hartley went early for Polworth's corner but seemed to jouk round the back and readjust for the regulation "bullet header" but would have to see it again to be sure. Really enjoyed the last goal: O'Hara's head flick was excellent and an amazingly cool finish from Christy Manzinga, walking anagram and potential Moultenator II.
  9. Or Steve "Leave The Foot In" MacLean, for that matter, currently bumping along the bottom of the puddle that is Hearts reserves. I expect another nail-biter and a narrow 2-1 win for The Orgasmatrons (that's us, btw). Looking furrit tae ma pie, tbh.
  10. Accies wore the Chooky Hamilton’s racing colours of cerise and French grey between 1908-13. Their red and white hoops may just be a more proletarian version. I think it’s believed by the club that it copied Bradford City’s colours and yoke after they won the FA cup before WW1 and changed to stripes later when the English club did too.
  11. Andy Weir (thought it was Pat Quinn for a moment, the pre-Iniesta Iniesta) and Alex Scott of RFC? Referee unknown to me, although I may have shouted at him. Any date or score, UBH?
  12. Good news for Declan? https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50376122
  13. Normally, I would regard this game as a forgone conclusion but I have to agree with TWF: an all-out effort and an Italian Celtic hangover could just deliver us a draw or better. If only Turnbull were available to slot home the 89th min. winner.....
  14. For what it's worth from BBC Sport: https://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/football/50280778 In other words, no-one's got a clue but let's keep the crock of crapola a-stirring. That's why they're called churnalists.
  15. Just the kind of shitfest many feared but we scraped it where last year we would have dropped points. No sympathy for the visitors, who worked the referee well but had little creativity. Having said that, I still feared the last-minute sickener from them. Hylton should be fined for his pathetic dive and his replacement Seedorf produced the wee bit of confusion to allow Campbell to hit the winner. Six points on fine margins from the last four days so delighted.
