I remember it well. I was in a soul dance years ago and Matty Jack was there and we both had a good laugh and a handshake about the ending.

I remember this game. Dundee United were wasting time, feigning injury with every tiny bit of contact, and Matty Jack had clearly had enough.

Brilliant.

When he went down for the penalty, was that a Matty Jack roll? :greengrin

I travelled up for that game. Some cracking players in the Hibs eleven there that day (he said wistfully).

Indeed - Sauzee, Latapy, Laursen, Zitelli, Paatelainen..

Yet only 10,000 at the game. Who says good product = increased attendances?

Loved seeing that again :thumbsup:

I've a notion that little episode spawned my intense dislike of Dundee Utd.

I would never had known the penalty was given for the stamp on Matty because the ref let it go at first. Was it a Sunday Sky game at 6:15? If so that would explain the low attendance.

:agree: They were cheating for ages in the lead up to full time the penalty was a brilliant piece if poetic justice! Combe was like a caged animal that day and won't have done his reported aspirations to move to Hibs over the years any good.

If I recall Matty was GOING to give them them the ball back but Lovell told him not to. They were all dropping like flies and Archie told them that if they went down again he would be keeping the ball and he did exactly as he said he would. Matty got the pelters but it was Archie's decision.

Good leader Lovell, we could do with someone of his ilk now.

The experts in the crowd certainly didn't say that at the time...:cool2:

Seem to recall we went on a stinking run after that while qualifying for Europe....strangely familiar.........:hmmm:

Great memories. I know Utd fans who still go daft when that game or Matty Jack's name get brought up.

I was busy shouting at Lehman for what I thought was giving away a free kick for a push and then we realised we'd won a pen. Cheatin' Arabs had been time wasting and diving all game. An early start to the New Year festivities in the pub after that one :party:

Remember for some reason I was in the west stand for that game.

Didn't Alan Combe threaten the linesman or something?

Freeland is the worst ref I have ever seen.

That Falkirk game with Freeland made my blood boil, that day there was a fair few guys who wanted onto the pitch, the worst refereeing performance I have seen anywhere ever. I remember this place going into meltdown. Emails to the SFA, petitions etc. I would like to watch the 90 mins again can anyone remember the date?

Thats a fair and accurate observation as things are not always as they would obviously appear, this particular game being a case in point :wink:

When running off the pitch Combe pushed his face into someone elses (4th official?) and shouted something. He got another yellow after the match IIRC.

Great day that was. Think it was a 3pm Saturday kick off, few excuses for poor attendance.

What a team.

Great work from Tam McManus to win the corner too, what a worker :wink:

fourth official was Richmond so another cherry on the cake as far as I am concerned - though it might have been where got his anti Hibs stance from

I loved the bit on the video when Smith had a big grin on his mush and was back-slappin his assistant for a job well done at trying totally to spoil a game thru time wasting and cheating

Cue the penalty and his ba face didny half change then :thumbsup:

The team, the strip, the memories:boo hoo:. Oh what I'd do for a return to that era:agree:.

But what was the penalty for? :faf:

And what an absolute knob of a man Combe is, another plus of the CIS Cup match was Hibs knocking 5 past him.

Great to see that again I remember Jim Hamilton chasing Jack down the tunnel only one winner there and it ain't that P##SY Hamilton. Would have got his head to play with. Very very enjoyable watching that, Utd were cheating fuds that night and deserved the loss :agree:

The rage of the Dundee Utd players was hilarious :faf:

I remember this because I'd walked down from the South End of the East Stand, down to the end where it all kicked off as I was literally seconds from leaving! Lucky I stayed :greengrin
