Not seen this posted anywhere else but just would like to say how impeccably the minute's remembrance was organised and observed yesterday.

Congratulations to Hibs and to every person in the crowd.

Proud to be a Hibbie after that.

Yep.

The bagpiper was excellent and it was a great moment of reflection by everyone inside the stadium.

Are we bringing out a commemorative home shirt to mark the occasion?
Could be a nice little earner.

It was impeccably observed last week too - apart from the muffled chattering of teeth,and dripping noises.

I could be totally seeing something that isn't there but I took it as a pretty clear jibe at our dear neighbours and their somewhat sketchy record of paying up when it comes to charity.

The lone piper's dirge really brought it home to me about the sad loss of lives war causes,poor brave souls.

Quite an emotional minute's silence with the piper, brilliant from hibs to set up the tickets in the south stand for family of war veterans, nice touch and extra bums on seats:aok:

I agree with what you write although I don't understand the earlier comments on why we feel the need to congratulate ourselves for standing quietly. I would feel ashamed if this wasn't the case.

It shouldn't normally be worthy of comment but Fans of some Clubs have a bit of history with ruining a Minute's Silence (Celtc & Hearts come to mind).

:agree:

I was at Tower of London and the Cenotaph on Tuesday and that was so special. Mixed with the fact that I know a guy in the Sainsbury advert and then the piper at ER. It's been an emotional ride the last few weeks, as I also found out that my wifes great grandad was killed in action in Egypt..........

Unfortunately, it's more than some fans of another club in Scotland have managed in the past week or so.

Yes, but I take it for granted that Hibs fans now how to behave. I don't fee the need to pat myself on the back for it,

I agree, what a world we live in when we count staying silent on such an occasion as an achievement.

It's ashamed in Scottish football we have a team that act in such a vile way during the silence that we now feel the need to congratulate our own fans on staying silent. It shouldn't be a hard thing to do. Be respectful that's all you need to do.
