but seemingly true
10 reversals and
paradoxes of a season of great adventure.
|1. HHHT readers are probably
familiar with The Proclaimers song Cap in hand, one small (i.e. 2) number of
rock and pop songs to feature The Hibees.
understand why Stranraer lie so lowly, they could save a few points if they signed up Hibs
This season Stranraer
saved a few points (3 to be precise) by beating Hibs at Easter Road in the league.
2 The previously
mentioned goalie continued the tradition of Goal keeper/poet-philosopher by appearing in
the national press with pillars of the Scottish loyalist community and a selection of
artistic UVF banners. There must be substantial bad kharma (copyright G Hoddle) at work on
Andy who is currently re-incarnated/employed as the boy that picks them out of the net at
3. Henrik Larssen (player of the
millennium, Nobel Prize for fitba etc) has scored about 200 goals this season, all of them
against Dundee. A HHHT scribe spotted him with uncanny prescience back in 1992 and
suggested that he would make a good signing if we had the readies -

Issue 10: Ideas for new signings? Your guess is as good as mine, but Lexo could do
worse than turning his attentions to Villa Park. Villa have a surplus of left sided
midfielders ate the moment. Henrick Larsen, currently on loan from Pisa, would probably
want Italian wages, so we can forget about him
4. Wacko Jacko the
reformed radge has changed his position yet again from the Big boys made me be the
Hearts mascot" to "Ahve always wanted to play fur the Hearts"
5. The curse of the
Jacko continues as another ex member of the Hibee "Jackson 2" (Chris)
dumps us from the Scottish cup while playing for the third crappiest team in the second
6. Keith Wright, true
Hibby that he is, scores the goal that confirms Hibs as Division champions
remarkably, he does it whilst playing for Morton.
7. Hibs fans relax after Lexo proves
not to be the one that got away. He fails to set the Aberdeen heather on fire
and seeks alternative employment. In the 1992 Scottish Cup final (Rangers Vs Aberdeen)
Alex Miller was stretchered off, the victim of one of the most bizarre self-inflicted
injuries in Scottish football. There seems to be no basis to the rumour that he waited 17
years to wreak a terrible vengeance on Aberdeen.
8. In order to beat the hammer
throwers of Airdrie four times in a season we had come down to their level (i.e. first
division). All is not doom and gloom for Airdrie. With Gary centre spot Mackay
in charge, the trophy for best stadium in the second division beckons.
9. Plan: Some Hearts-minded
thespians make an ill considered attempt to entertain people with a musical entitled
Hearts glorious Hearts (sic)
Outcome: It plays to rather unpacked
houses, loses money ad allegedly the producer cannae pay the bills
Art imitating life (or at least
Edinburgh football) The entrepreneur behind this worthy endeavour, Mr Gordon Neish (see
cutting) states without a trace of irony that "The first night the critics left with
huge smiles on their faces"
There was no mention of how far into the production they walked out!
10. At an end of season thanks
to Hearts for demonstrating that rather than breaking the mould of Scottish football they
are merely covered with the stuff.
