Once again, we're sadly playing second fiddle to the big team.

Wee Airdrie Jambo once was in an adjoining cell to Graham Rix.

I delivered his paper when I was about 12 and used to always knock on his door for a chat. To be fair to him, he always answered and gave me the time of day. He even invited me in when his wee laddie was born.

Top bloke.

Used to deliver a Sunday paper to Pat Stanton when he stayed up at Clerwood.

On another note when I moved to Longstone Wayne Foster happened to be my postie.
Funnily enough I never uttered a word to him in 2 years nor did he receive an xmas tip from me.

When I stayed in Muirhouse my kid's childminder stayed on the same landing as Jimmy Sandison. (I couldn't remember his name so went looking for it and started with wikepedia. Two of their employees are listed as professional mascots :faf::faf::faf:)

I'm sure he stayed in a rented place on Fettes Row opposite the RBS building I worked in. Or at least he did for a period.

It was the same gaff that Caldwell moved in afterwards which always made me believe Hibs owned it and rented it to players.

Used to see Caldwell all the time there or at the bookies on Dundas street. A few Hibs players used o go in there.

You've either got a million pound house down at Gamekeepers Rd or stay close to his in-laws then?

Anyways, for me Paul McGovern, Callum Milne and Stevie Raynes were all guys from around my way who played with Hibs.

Living in Bonnyrigg both Gordon Rae and Steven Whittiker grew up here and I know their families ( all jambos by the way specially the Whittikers) also famously Andy Goram lived here and drank in my local a lot. Eric Stevenson owned both a shop and a Hotel and now is retired in Eskbank. Rob Jones also had a house locally when at Hibs. We also have Jackie McNamarra Jnr living here and I know young Craig Thomsons father and grandfather ( sorry :grr:).

Colin Nish was my neighbour about 3 years ago when I stayed in Granfield, trinity. When I was selling my flat, Eddie May came to view it. He never bought it though!

Presently I've got at Daniel Galbraith and one other youngster I don't recognise.

In the past I've had Torben Joneleit, the left back Zarabi, Dermot McCaffrey and Benji's mum for a while.

Hibs seem to own / lease a good number of flats in the vicinity of Easter Road stadium.

I found out a couple of months ago that when AOB first came to hibs he stayed next door to me! Also whitty lives just down the road from me, a tasty wee house indeed! Remember seeing him outside talking to someone in a Ferrari! As I drove past who's in the drivers seat with the biggest smile on his face...none other than Scott Brown! Looked like a wee kid with the toy they've allways wanted!
