    I was at that match. It was when we had the old electronic scoreboard which, up until then, had always shown the half time scores with the team names written out in full. That day the scores came up A 1-0, B 0-0, etc. and the supporters started booing. Then 5 minutes later the announcer said "here are the half time scores A 1-0, B 0-0.... I've never heard fans going so mental outwith match time. 2 minutes later the scores sere announced in full.
    That was a throwback to how they were shown on the large wooden scoreboard that stood at the top of the terracing over the corner flag downhill.

    My earliest recollection was the old white scoreboard being in the corner of the south east terracing was it somewhere else before?

    Feet on the wall and hands on the wire and you walked up the wall to get round the broken glass in the top. You had to jump down as you couldn't dreep because of the glass!

    That's it. And all because the lady loves ...

    “Peeenis”.

    I remember all the boys in the class getting pulled up for copying this and shouting this in the playground in P6 when someone missed a sitter.

    The old club shop under the main stand. There never seemed to be anyone employed to work in it, it was just whoever was passing at the time. It was better than the one they opened on Easter Road though, I remember buying tickets from that one and there wasn’t enough room for people coming in to get passed the people coming out. It was carnage . The only things they had on sale was the strip and the much coveted tracksuit.

    The shop moved directly from under the old main stand to the bridge on Easter Road, then to it's current location.

    I'm not even sure there was a Post Office on Albert Street.

    I remember the old guy that used to walk around Easter Road holding aloft the blackboard with the lucky programme numbers which were printed on the front of your programme everyone used to pelt it with pies.

    I also remember the half time scoreboard with the shaky numbers which were waited on in great anticipation and huge gasps when the scores were put up in prearranged alphabetical order according to your programme in pre internet social media days as only the Sados had a tranny wired to their ears in those days listening to David Francey and Alister Alexander!
    This is a sexual activity from the 70s that I don't recall at Easter Road.

    It made an appearance in a Higher English Reading Comp paper in the 80's in an article by the columnist Miles Kington. He went to boarding school in Scotland, and the article was about words we have up here he liked that don't have English equivalents. He also liked our use of the word 'bucket' as a universal term for rubbish disposal containers ('Put it in the bucket'), with no need for tedious specifics like 'waste-paper bin'.

    I don't know why I remember this, I'll be 51 net week.
    I saw 'stocious' in a Guardian article on Venezia FC recently. Really surprised to see it written down at all and especially in that paper. I pretty much detest it - the Nuardiag that is.

    I seem to remember bars of McCowans Highland Toffee and lots of empty packets of No6, Capstan and Woodbine.

    My uncle used to have a newsagents not too far from the ground. Whenever Rangers came the place would be inundated with (Rangers) weirdos wanting to buy pen knives. Actually I remember as a kid a big march coming right past the shop with all these incredibly pompous looking idiots wearing bowler hats. Well warned not to cross the road in front of it or through it.

    Cheers mate just what I thought. Ancient Hibby must be talking about some ancient pre First World War wooden structure.

    I had also completely forgotten about those open air, smelly toilets at the junction between terracing and Dunbar end ...both sets of fans standing with a wall between them - a few things lobbed over that wall in the 70s if I correctly recall !

    Aberdeen photo reminds me of the old spot-the-ball comp in the Pink.
    I won a comp in the Pink when a kid, must have been early 70s, but don't recall exactly what for - don't think it was spot-the-ball - and won a voucher for Ronnie Simpson's sports shop in Rose St. Met the man himself and bought myself a pair of Pele boots.

    I remember it well, bought my first pair of Peter Bonetti green gloves in there for 2/6.
    Did the shop not become The Rose Street Brewery?



    Jock Stein opening the shop.

    The self same John Greig used to have a shop in Bruntsfield Place, which was a gents' outfitters from memory. We used to take great pleasure in opening the shop door on our way home from school and screaming 'Hibees' at him at the top of our voices. It usually riled him up which made it even sweeter.

    I remember a boy turning up with a big cardboard box at the back of the shed, opening it up and starting to flog his spam rolls. A policeman turned up and turfed him out after he’d sold about 50!
