    Privileged

    I know there will be some moaning about the defending, alleged tactical mistakes and so on. But I have to say I just feel totally privileged to be at that game today. Theres no way you would include that in a filmscript, it was that outlandish. 3-0 up inside half an hour, they score three more before halftime to make it 3-3 at the break, they go 5-3 up (thats five consecutive goals, mind), before we score one more to make it 5-4 and then equalise in the last minute. Reading it back like that, its beyond belief. And thats before we take into account that we were playing that particular club...

    The sunshine, Lenny's aeroplane, the final game of the season, some good company and pre and post match drinking...Its going to be one of those games you tell the grandchildren about. Hibs 5 Rangers 5. And they'll accuse you of exaggerating

    Thanks Neil and the players for a wonderfully ridiculous game of association football

    I was thinking about this today. There canít be many clubs where many living fans have seen a 4-4, a 5-5 and a 6-6. I wasnít at the 6-6 but there will probably be hundreds that made all 3.

    I had a perfect view. He played the ball, never a foul.

    The 4-4 and the 6-6 (probably even should have finished 7-6 to Well) epitomised everything that was bad about Hibs at those times. Today's game on the other hand was a complete rollercoaster and an illustration of everything that's been good about this season.

    I meant the 4-4 derby

    It was mental.

    At 3-0 I was screaming for us just to calm down for 10 minutes and keep it tight then have another go. In hindsight I donít think 6 was ever happening.

    What we got was unbelievable, there really arenít the superlatives to describe it. It was great to watch 2 teams appearing to decide not to bother defending, get stuck in and just try to outscore the opposition. The kind of game you just donít think happens anymore. 10 goals, a penalty, a red card, a shocker of a tackle, a bouncing atmosphere, a few great saves and a manager not giving 2 ****s in his celebrations.

    I was the opposite. I wanted another goal ASAP. But in hindsight we should have steadied the ship after the third, took a breather, kept things tight and maybe went at them for the last 5-10 mins of the first half for a fourth. Easy to say now though.

    The Rangers were going for 5-5 this season. Hibs obliged.

    The first 25mins today was probably the best experience I've ever had at Easter Road. Unreal. Top hun goading in the south.
