There has been much debate about how good the atmosphere was at the Athens game a few years ago, (I missed it as I was away on hol) I was wondering did last night top that game?

For me I've never seen such raw emotion before, during and after a game at ER in my life. The place was rocking and when Cummings scored the roof was just about blown clean off.

It really shows what this club is all about and when needed the fans will always back the boys.

No Cat, to me it was still nowhere near the very special night of AEK...that said, it was fantastic, and shows what sort of special backing a good team can have at ER...Fans were superb.

The goals, the celebrations and the laughing at the yams disallowed goals were great, but I felt there were patches in the match where it felt quite flat, and towards the end the nerves were creeping in.

A great night, but AEK still tops it for me.

Atmosphere last night was good, against AEK it was, well, fantastic, different class.

In ten years time last nights atmosphere may make it up through the grades to different class.:greengrin

Nowhere near it and while the atmosphere was good last night I've been in a lot better following hibs (admittedly most of them were away from ER).

Definitely quiet periods towards the end when tension took over.

However, a couple of times in the East the stand was moving.

I thought it was a great atmosphere last night, certainly one of the best if not the best since the new stand. It was the most positive I have felt easter road. There was a few grumbles with oxleys kicking at the end but nothing else apart from supporting the club

Could almost hear the tension between the 60-80 minute mark. That's when the fans needed to get behind the team.

Agree with this. Atmosphere was good 1st half and at the end, but fell pretty quiet during the second half as the nerves set in.

As mentioned by someone on another thread last week, it would be good to hear some of the more traditional Hibs tunes getting belted out again more often along with the newer tunes.

For example, "we hate Glasgow Rangers, we hate Celtic too" is never heard these days. "We are Hibernian fc" is not sung as much either. These songs have a bit of aggression in them which the newer songs don't match IMO.

Just an observation but I'm sure the full repertoire will be out again soon.

I thought the tension added to the atmosphere and raw emotion.

Nothing like AEK. That game was about reaching into our souls, channeling the enormous pride in our European heritage and letting the opposition and world know that we are Hibernian FC, and even though the odds are stacked against us, if you want to progress you will have to battle tooth and nail to do it.

For me the most hideous thing about the Fenlon era was not the Thomson and dodgy money assisted 1-5 final, but that horrendous home defeat by Malmo. That was a club that had totally lost all pride and sense of its self. Thank you AS and LD for bringing that back. We now have people who instinctively get what it means to be Hibs in charge.

Was that not at full time just before extra time. I may be wrong right enough.

Agree especially on a night we were meant to be commemorating probably our greatest ever player.

No you're right. It became our anthem that evening.

Atmosphere was great last night but very tense in the second half. A second goal would have lifted the roof.

You can't compare the two and it is more about how European football has changed and the timing of us playing before a team is assembled against teams mid season. Circumstances on the night counted as well with a few 19 year olds playing.

If we had to play in Europe next year the same thing could happen even in the new set up.

We did lose 6 goals to Rangers after all before this league season started.

Without turning this into a Pat Fanlon thread there was zero team spirit and he brought in some horrific players that contributed to that defeat. I honestly think Hibs would never suffer a defeat in Europe like that under this management team.

I agree, but also concede that Andy made a good point - which I had forgotten about.

Brings the old discussion about atmosphere in the old and new east stand to a conclusion. I could only get a ticket in the FF last night, great atmosphere from the east and at times all 3 stands.

Barely a peep from the away end though.

AEK and the 6-2 demolition of herts were the highlights of the last few years. Last night rekindled memories of those times though...onwards

Freak result without a full strength team. In fact, some of thr boys who played that day aren't even at Hibs just now.

How the hell is this turned into a debate of Pat Fenlons honking, eye bleeding football in Europe, against The Rangers in a training cup that not one person actually wanted to play in?

Is Stubbs a better manager... YES
Is Stubbs more tactically aware... YES
Is this side better than Fenlons... YES
Is Stubbs the man to take us forward... YES.

We were pumped silly because of bad signings and bad management. Until this happens in Europe again then there is no argument it's guessing.

I wonder if everything good Stubbs has done will be forgotten/disregarded if he has bad times and resigns? Seems to happen a lot on here.

AEK game had it all. A fight back from 0-2. The atmosphere of defiance after the attacks on the twin towers. The Greeks burning a US flag. The Hibs support kept cheering the team on. It was just a very special night. I remember the place dancing to "Hey baby" at half time. But Luna"s header right at the death which crept past the post for us to win it still annoys me. The AEK game was a carnival of fun where derbys have too much at stake to be enjoyed without tension
