I was sitting in the pub watching us 81% of the time and the Jambos 19% of the time. :thumbsup:

Working in Glasgow.

Saw the first half at Glasgow Airport in the bar on a tiny TV not helped by a huge, sweaty, plain spotting Hun (replete with tatty McEwan's Lager shirt) sitting in front of me looking the other way (ie outside at the runway).

Despite claiming to have an interest in football he (and his pished up mate) didn't once look at the game and were quite annoyed when I cheered Jones' goal and Brown's near miss.

I missed the second half as I had to catch my plane.

What a dilemma I had getting to that game!

I was on a uni trip from Glasgow to East Fortune Museum of Flight. I explained to my lecturer just before we got back on the bus that I needed to be in Edinburgh tonight, and would it be OK to be dropped off somewhere. He said no due to health and safety stuff. So then I was taken all the way to Glasgow, the bus got stuck in traffic on the way back.

Got back to Glasgow at 6pm. Ran down to get on the Subway into Queen Street. Realised that to have any realistic chance of getting in I HAD to be on the 6:15 train. Was the last person on the train before they shut the doors. Then got on the train, my phone battery started going low, and I needed it to arrange to meet the guy I go to games with to pick up my ticket, so sent him a text asking him to leave my ticket in the Ticket Office for me and then my phone died. Got through, got a Hibby taxi driver up to the game who made it his mission to get me there. I then bumped into my mate just before he put my tickets into the office, and made it in just before Kick Off.

Very satisfying game to make :greengrin:agree:

Was in east stand row J seat 135 having the time of my life with my best hibee mate johny watt. the hibees bounce at the end would have been at least 12 on the rictor (spelling?) scale :thumbsup:

was a wierd game because in my life time i have never seen us completly outrun the yams in every department like that, which was brilliant, although you couldnt celebrate properly as it was always just the one goal in it! So when full time came it was just all the emotions coming out at once :agree:

was a brilliant night. hopefully yogi can deliver some more of these memorable nights. fantastic mon the hibeeeeeeeeeeeees :thumbsup:

In The Wallace pub in Lyon watching the game with a couple of mates and a few Jambo acquaintances who were in the region doing some sort of engineering work. Anyway, one of these Jambos was a genuine boozehound (like, we're talking bordering on the alchoholic) and was mercifully to drunk to carry out his varied and colourful threats against me as I spent the last 5 minutes of the game singing "Oh this is so ****ing easy" - even though we were (somehow) only 1 goal up, I had none of the nerves that would normally be present in the last 5 minutes, being only 1 goal up, especially against the JAmbos.

It's a real shame, despite it being a great night, that we didn't ram 4 or 5 past them which we really should have done (Spotty Gordon :grr::grr:)

Is it the case with these reminiscence threads, that if you can remember being in these places, you weren't really there?

Not for this one!
I was moving house the next day, so amidst full packing boxes and covered up furniture, I stood in my soon-to-be former living room watching this game and kicked nearly every ball :agree:

The second best ever South Street/derby match/Monifieth Hibs moment, G :thumbsup:

Was working under Mike Ashley at a Sports Shop at the time of the game, the gaffer of the shop was also a Hibby and we blethered about Hibs all the time. I checked the rota and noticed it was a Stock Take and everyone had to be in.

Gaffer told me that since he couldnt go I wasnt aloud, **** him :wink:
he then told me that if I decided to go to the match I wouldnt be on the payroll anymore.

Went to the match:thumbsup:

East stand, pished.

The night had a sour end though, missed our last train to Perth so me and my mate ended up going out to La Monde and I got my scarf knicked. My scarf that I got given to me for 15 years at my first ever Hibs game by my stepdad. I was about greetin' :boo hoo:
