What is everyone's favourite derby moment from the past?

Mine would have to be Garry O'Connor slamming in the 2nd in the "We Are Unbeatable" derby. I had just crawled back to my seat after the celebrations for Boozy's goal when I look to see O'Connor control the ball and rifle it past Gordon. I almost fainted from that celebration!

Last seasons was pretty good. Team down to bare bones, no way we were winning, they were going to give us a doing 3 or 4-0.

Didnt work out that way though :greengrin.

Of the recent games I really enjoyed the Brian Kerr derby, scoring in the first couple of minutes at that dump is brilliant! :greengrin

But my favourite derby moment has to be Latapy for the 6th!

Deano's winner in April 05 is my favourite ever derby moment. I remember the celebrations being particularly wild; guy beside me falling down the stairs and other such shenanigans.

Gordon Hunters winner, i was about 8 at the time and had never seen us beat Hearts, what a moment.

Also Deanos winner was special, the crowd reaction was near hysteria.

My god you're forgiving. I will never ever get over that.

I'd almost say the 2nd in the unbeatable game as well. Because of what Hearts represented at the time, because Hibs were doing so well, because the game had been so hyped, because we'd just broken the deadlock and sensed an edgy ten minutes ahead.... That almost didn't sound like a normal celebration, it was like white noise.

Only time that came close was Harper's solo run, similar kind of experience.

O'Connors injury time winner after being down to 10 men for the whole of the second half. My daughter's first (and so far, last) East Stand experience. She thinks its that mental at every game:faf:

Agree completely, I remember going home with my dad and the radio gave the soundbites from both goals, I've never heard a noise like the one heard from the 2nd goal.

Kenny Miller's to make it 3 at Tynie, the one and only derby at tynie that we've won convincingly in the last 20 years (approx).

Both at Tynie and both when we still got the proper away end.

The second goal from Archibald when we did them with 10. The celebrations were mental.:thumbsup:

Secondly, when Joe McBride got two late goals in a midweek game to get us a very unlikely point in a 2-2 game.:thumbsup:

Stanton's injury time equaliser at Tynie in 1975. Boy were those Jam Tarts sick! The ref just refused to blow his whistle.

just remembered greetin' Jim jefferies was playing i think!

Kevin Harper's screamer from the edge of the box. Or Hunter ending the hoodoo. Was in the "enclosure" in front of the old main stand and the polis had been hassling the hibs fans all day for refusing to sit on soaking wet seats. Cue Hunter and a mini-pitch invasion, including a guy with his kid on his shoulders which can still be seen on the footage! Funny as!:greengrin

So many great moments over the last forty odd years, My favourite was after the 7-0 game standing outside the players entrance wishing the Hibs players a happy New Year when out strolled Pat Stanton shook our hands and asked "did you enjoy the game boys". Class :thumbsup:

Harpers volley from the Keith Wright knock down - the game after we got horsed 7-0 by Rangers.

Although Latapy's 6th in the 6-2 always gives me goosebumps.

That's mine too! :agree:

Stuart Dougall sent Grant Brebner off for a non tackle on Gary Locke (I think) around the half way line and then apologised for it the next day saying he had got it wrong! :grr:

:singing: Ten men! We only need 10 men, we only need 10 men.............! :agree:

Brilliant! :wink: :cool2: :greengrin

Andy Walker's equalizer in the 2-2 game at Tynecastle 1998 (?)
We were 2-0 down in 7 minutes and we feared the worst. A combination of good goal keeping, atrocious finishing and luck meant we went in at HT 2-0 down.
Kevin Harper came on at HT he terrorised them with a superb display of wing play. With Daring Darren Dodds rampaging up the Left wing like a berserk left wing we scrambled a goal back to make it 2-1 then unbelievably we scored an equalizer.
Bumping down the stairs in the Roseburn Stand I passed 3 mates doing cartwheels and kissed men i didn't even know!!
The best was taunting the Jambo stands skulking away as if we'd hammered them shouting "you thought you'd got seven but you've no!"
The worst was the realisation that Duffy's reign as manager was to continue as a result. Never mind it only lasted a week when we went to Motherwell, went 2-0 up in 10 minutes then lost 6-2.
Oh the banter!

Thats was my favourite too - we have actually been quite succesful at midweek derbys recently. Just remember Deano and Gary O sliding right in to the corner where we were and all the Hearts fans trying to get at them.

Aye I'm pretty sure that Walker got us back in it and Pat equalised. Some fightback given the circumstances! Never been happier with a draw in truth (1-1 John O'Neil to maintain Franck's record runs it close)!

If we're going to talk about draws, the 1-1 at ER when Deeks curled one into the top bag from 20 yards was simply awesome. I had taken my cousin along to his first (and so far, only) Hibs game and we had the misfortune of being stuck in the lower West near the day-release ****. I was in the middle of explaining that Derek regularly scores from this distance... Think I surfaced about 4 rows down from where I started off.

It seemed at the time and from the angle we saw it from that the net had grabbed the ball as it was going by. Top class goal in a game with little else to commend it. I seem to recall Murdock giving away a particularly stupid penalty in the second half to ruin the fun.

Geebsie's winner at their place - first time I'd ever seen us beat them...

Kano's ball to Archie who slammed it past Henry, Henry drop the ball...

And one game I can't remember exactly (we won or drew) on the terrace at Tynie. We scored and I ended up surfacing from the crowd about 20 feet from where I started. Always remember a guy shouting and screaming so hard that his false teeth flew out of his mouth - only for him to catch them mid flight - panther like reactions!

Oh, and "You're not unbeatable" too. I was sadly away for the 6-2 game, but did enjoy my 6 celebrations to a bemused London pub audience!

My only derby so far was a 0-0 at Easter Road in 1994.

The game was shocking and the only thing I remember was bumping into a young lad on the terrace along the side with what seemed like a very long spliff.

Happy days!

The we are unbeatable game for me.

Was in Florida for the 6-2 game

Knew the score but spotted 2 jambos the next day and asked them the score

6-2 to Hibs says one

I know said I to the other, but I'm a Hibby and just wanted to hear you saying it.

For some reason I have never been able to fathom they seemed a bit put out after that!

O'Conner's goal in the Only 10 men game at ER is still fresh in my memory, but the 2 all game at Tynecastle when Mcbride scored a free kick sometime in the . . . mid 80's was a classic.:thumbsup:

Geebsies goal Stantons 95 min equaliser(time added on cause Jeffries took 5 mins to leave field when sent off I think) Archie not just goal fabulous play at 10 men, the Baker boys diving header for a hatrick(that was actually punched in), but ultimately my brother in law and me carrying my old man into my jambo supporting uncles house to find him sitting with a towel over his head and 3 drams in front of him after 7 0 and too many more to mention:notworthy::notworthy::notworthy::notworthy :
