Dnipro Kids will be taking part in the Leith Festival at Easter Road. There are quite a lot of exciting things going on at the charity so it would definitely be worth stopping by the stall. And if you've donated money, even by chucking some cash in a collection bucket at the last The Rangers game, you can find out exactly how that money has helped the orphans!

I believe the bar in the FF is open but perhaps someone else (Jack?) can confirm.

To be honest I'm just a wee volunteer for this each year. I don't even get to do the tour :-(

I'm pretty certain there's food. It will be in the FF I think.

Looking forward to that!

A reminder to everyone there's no need to all rush up at 12 o'clock. It's bound to be very busy at that time, for folk that don't read dotnet ;-), plenty time to get round later in the afty.

Bump.

Doors open at 12, but last entry will be 3.30 so you don't need to be there first thing. Hope to see many of you tomorrow!

Disappointed to be out the country this weekend - will be great to see Cup inside Easter Road. I'll just have to be patient and wait till Thursday night to see the old trophy in all it's glory.

Hmmm, those ribbons aren't real Hibs' green.

That's ruined the whole Cup win for me...

Not long back from this and ive gotta say a big well done to all involved. Was very well organised and get to see a lot of the stadium, including players lounge, suites, changing rooms and walk out the tunnel.

The scottish cup is on show but ive done the official photo so didnt wait in the (very big) queue for another photo.

Loving the buzz around the club just now. Massive congrats and well done to all involved.

Bottle green vs emerald green debate

IMHO I've loved the bottle green shirts and that what we wore when we lifted the cup

Sent from my iPhone using TapatalkSeeing that cup with the green ribbons and the Hibs badges in the background makes this all still seem like a dream.

I missed today but can't wait to see the cup on Tuesday evening with the wee man.

Good day out, well organised by the Historical Trust folks and got my photo taken with The Cup. :thumbsup:

Also, spotted myself in several of the photos from the Hands off Hibs display. :greengrin

I went with my boys. It was a well organised walk around the stadium, from the players lounge, then the gallery followed by a photo with the Scottish Cup. A chance to see the dressing room, a walk up the tunnel, high 5 leith lynx. A look at the plaques, something to eat then to finish it off a visit to the hibs shop.

What more could you want? Great day out.

It would have been Peter Cormack, John Fraser or Neil Martin. All three were around and wearing suits.

Would love to have met him - I was down with my old boy and he and John grew up together in Porty.

It was ruined for me the moment our supporters invaded the field of play and terrorised those Rangers players, officials, supporters and watching journalists.

We should hand the cup and our European slot over to the Ibrox club. C'mon big hearted Hibs officials, still two hours to make that call and do the decent thing.

True it is the only dignified thing to do as well as paying compensation to all the bluenoses concerned
