    Heads up for anyone thinking of going.

    I have just had a phone call to state only one game will be getting played and its on Friday 11th January at night.
    Any chance of this game being behind closed doors?

    I'd go if there were loyalty points on offer.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    Maybe part of the deal is that Lennon goads the crowd into throwing gold bars at him?

    Very sad to read Hibs going there for the winter break.

    Flashy mega bucks image on the outside but on the inside a place with horrendous human rights, barbaric laws one which includes jailing female rape victims rather than the rapist.

    Poor show Hibs.

    Not that I'm aware of.

    When I got the call there was no mention of closed doors.

    and what exactly has that got to do with the club? they are going somewhere to train where the weather is decent and they can recharge the batteries, you could pick up faults in almost every country in the world, should we just not go anywhere?

    There are faults, and then there are FAULTS if you get what I mean.

    Don't necessarily blame the club, but it is one horrible society they are going to, if this is indeed true.

    Of course every country has its faults but some are particularly worse than others.

    Dubai is one of these places that I wouldn't touch, even if you paid me to go.

    Aye, let's just ignore the fact it's one of the most racist countries in the world that treats it's people, unless they are millionaires with total disdain.

    It's goes against everything regarding the morals and respect of our family football club!

    Also a place where you can leave your door unlocked at night or your phone on a table without the threat of it being chored.Provided your not making a complete twat of yersel on the beer you can also enjoy a bevvy too with no threat of being jumped on the way home.A country in its infancy that of course has teething problems adapting to the multicultural influx but I think you’re being a bit dramatic.You’ll find the exploitation of migrant workers is being carried out by fellow countryman agents.Agreed the law might not be there to protect them but the UAE is not dragging these people here.Perhaps greater women’s rights in their home country would stop the over population and subsequent lack of employment opportunities back home that leads to this situation.

    While you’re googling maybe look up the figures and compare them to UK cities or even worldwide.

    This thread hasn't half opened my eyes.

    I had no idea how bad the place was.

    I thought it was some sort of perfection.

    people in our own country are racist, bigoted and sectarian, we treat our poor very badly, so much so that some need food banks. not saying its anywhere near as bad as other countries but where do you draw the line? anyway i hope the players get something out of it

    Not at all.I just felt I could give a different perspective to your view which appears to based on an extreme news story you’ve read.You came back with another newspaper story without substance to counter my claims the city was relatively safe.To then remark that one of the most multicultural countries in the world is also the most racist for me doesn’t stack up so happy to leave it there.At no point have i heralded Dubai as some sort of eutopia.

    I was planning on not going to MK Dons-Wimbledon that evening.

    It's always the way, things clash
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    Your missing the point. It was you that mentioned the crime not me. I really don't give a toss if you can leave your phone on a table. But I do care about blatant racism and exploitation of people's human rights and corrupt laws. Its probably the only place in the world where a job application tells you which nationalities should and shouldn't apply.
