    Funniest moment you've seen at the match

    Being new to this forum, apologies if a similar post has been put on here before, but with it still being the mid-season break and football being light on the Easter Road ground, I was just wondering...

    We've all suffered endless hours of crap football, shivering in the cold and questioning your own sanity as your desire only for a return to the pub and a warm fire as another goal is conceded only deepens... but we all must agree that what makes going to the match so special is not necessarily what happens on the pitch but the events that take place off it, either involving yourself or others, that help make certain games stand out from the rest...

    So, what's the funniest thing you've seen when going to the match, off the pitch, that you remember... and still laugh about now...

    james Keatings scoring and tries to slide on his knees to salute the fans. But it goes wrong and he almost does a somersault. Then SJM takes the piss out of him. Classic

    I always used to wear my Hibs tops when i watched Cheltenham and gave Andy Kirk pelters every time he played against Cheltenham for Boston, Northampton & Yeovil,never saw many ex jambos down south years ago, I always stand just behind the goal and every time he was within earshot he got both barrels, and to his credit he did take it well, maybe he thought it was just banter !! a few years later I was up at wedding in Dunfermline and decided to take in a game, so I wore my Cheltenham top and went in with the away fans (can't remember who) and proceeded to give him heaps more, the words '' Kirk, you're still a dirty jambo b******d" came out as he was stood by the near post, he turned round and saw me in the Cheltenham top, his face was a picture, his reply "Aw ffs can you no leave me in peace "

    I think Keats tried to style it out as if nothing had gone wrong didn't he?

    1-1 away to Dunfermline earlier this year, Grant Holt came on with about 10 minutes to go. The Dunfermline fans were chanting get your tits out for the lads. Holt lifted his top, licked his finger and provocatively circled it around his nipple and got a huge cheer from the fans who had been chanting at him.

    Not so much off the pitch. A couple of seasons ago at Easter Road and I think it was against Queen of the South. Hibs score a last gasp goal to win the game 2-1 when suddenly a wee Hibs fan (could have only been about five year old) ran on the pitch at the FF end, gave the stewards the slip and ran the full length of the pitch before goading the away fans. A couple of minutes before that happened it looked like we were only getting a point so a win and the wee boy made me leave the ground with a smile on my face. Brilliant.

    Sixteen pages.

    There was the time I queued at half time in the old east about 1983/4 for pies for myself and my brother only to find out that when it was my turn to get served that they were only selling match programs. Or is it programmes. They were okay but could have done with a bit broon sauce on them to take away the dryness.

    A well known and respected Hibs fan bursting a whole row of seats as he sat down in Dinaburg Latvia when we were in the Inter Toto cup springs to mind! The noise was that loud even the players stopped and turned round to see what it was. .

    Against Aberdeen in the 80s. Someone decided it would be a good idea for a man to drive the Sinclair C5 around the ground at half time. The guy got pelted with pies, bovril and all sorts as he made his way around with both sets of supporters having a go

    Way back in the mists of time (probably the 60s), we were playing Airdrie at ER. To say the football on offer was dire would be an understatement. The ball goes out of play and into the crowd near the front of the old East terracing. Whereupon a Hibs fan picks up the ball and runs all the way up to the very top of the high terracing, drops the ball onto his foot and wellies it out of the ground, to great applause from the suffering Hibees in attendance. If I remember correctly he was arrested for his trouble.
    I'm sure I read in the press days later, that the then chairman, Tom Hart, presented the guy with a season ticket for his actions.

    Strangely enough I was in the FF Lower that night and I do remember seeing Coisty giving the thumbs up. Didn't see the middle finger reply so just thought that Sally knew somebody in the crowd. Or maybe that he was a big Hibs fan on the quiet.

    There were a few hibs fans giving him the thumbs up & he seemed to be lapping it up, until the young lads gave him the middle fingered salute anyway 😆

    Someone from the old east stand throwing a rugby ball on the park during a derby when Hearts were considering yet another move to Murrayfield. Craig Gordon picked the ball up and threw it rugby style back towards the touchline. Made me chuckle.

  25. #24
    Around the time of Hearts talking of moving to Murrayfield, derby at ER, ball goes in to the old East with Craig Gordon waiting to take a free kick. Out comes a rugby ball launched on to the pitch!!

    Perfect timing and was funny as ****

    Edit: Too slow 😂

    Can't remember exactly when but Mickey Weir pulling a (think) St Johnstone players shorts down at Easter Road, gave away a free kick if I remember rightly. Was funny at the time. Think it was late 80's early 90's

    When Celtic visited Easter Road after rumour new had broken that Gary Caldwell had been having an affair with a rangers cheerleader

    The chant of “What’s it like to s**g a hun?”

    Even his team mate Paul Hartley was in stitches

    Raith away in a friendly. Ball gets kicked out the park and it hits a front door then bounces off down the road. An elderly woman then answers the door and then looks about to see who knocked on her door 😂 funny thing during a very boring game.

    My dad and I still laugh at this. Would have been some time in the 80’s the refreshment hut caught fire during the game at the back of the old ‘cowshed’, short time later a bloke comes back to his seat clutching some black pies and with what looked like soot round his mouth declaring ‘get yourselves up there there selling them off for 10p’. Some folk just hate to miss a bargain!

    Funniest moment? Hibs v Hearts at ER. Stevie Fulton gets a yellow card and the East Stand erupts into a spontaneous chant of "Booked 'cos you're ugly" . Even Fulton grinned at that.

    I always laugh when I remember a game against Celtic.

    We were rubbish and losing 4-0 or 5-0.

    After a misplaced pass, the Celtic fans sung "You're not very good". Straight away the East Stand sings "You're not very clean"
