Looking forward to it as I've already missed two home games.

Tough one, I guess Scotland beating England has more weight to it since it doesn't come around too often in competition, it would be a bit more memorable too. Losing to Falkirk could come back to bite us though.....I'm going for Scotland to win as I have faith Hibs would still win the league.

If I had the choice between England decimating Scotland 20-0 and Hibs winning 1-0 with a last minute penalty versus Scotland destroying England 20-0 and Hibs-Falkirk an exciting 7-7 draw, I'd choose option one.

How do you know that, if they are "silently hoping for an England win"? Just making things up are you? How many is "too many" BTW? :rolleyes:

I hope Scotland win, but I don't think they will. They might get a draw. I stopped going to Scotland matches, and supporting the team, many years ago because they were terrible. Simple as that. Does anyone recall the Bertie Vogts years? Absolute murder. They've not qualified for a major tournament finals since 1998 FFS.

Hibs getting out of the Championship means much more to me.

No matter how bad we are, I always want Scotland to win, even more so against England. Growing up in an era where that was not uncommon, albeit that we had the odd tanking, I find it impossible to wish for anything other than a win for our national team.

If our game depended on us winning it to get promotion then I would prefer us to Scotland.

Hi Heid Yin

Hibs result for me every time these days.
Scotland is a remote and emotionally distant dynamic that affects me little - even less so when we are but perpetual also-rans and "nobodies"on a world scale. The days of qualifying for major competitions regularly with 100,000 crowds against The English in a Tartan draped, flag and banner-flying stadium, with ear-piercing and uplifting roars of "Scotland! Scotland! Scotland! are long gone. Thank God I witnessed and experienced such spectacles.

Dearie me, what a daft comment. Nope, I've supported Hibs all my life (which I suspect is much longer than you), including after three relegations. Not just one. That's never stopped me.

I've got a greater commitment and attachment to Hibs, than to the national side. That doesn't mean I don't want the Scottish team to do well. Hope that's OK with you?

PS: By supporting the team, I meant actually attending Scotland matches.

Both could be fantastic of course, but if only one, it can only be Hibs for me.
If Hibs lose, it feels like someone's punched me in the stomach, and a defeat can really put a dampener on a Saturday night. If Scotland lose, I'm disappointed, but never feel the same hurt as that of Hibs defeats.

Hibs and Scotland are the only two sides I care about. They compete in different levels of the game so being asked which I value more is either a stupid or a deliberately loaded question.

08-11-2016, 10:21 PM
Ok I've been suckered in to this nonsense thread

(the only game I'll be at this weekend is hibs at Easter Road btw) but if I had the choice to choose between a must win world cup qualifier against our biggest rivals on their own patch or a league game where we still have over 20 to play and 60 points to play for then, at this stage it's Scotland all day long.

For France 98 I was 9 so whilst I have memories from it, I want to experience life as an adult to see the impact to our nation when Scotland qualifies for a major tournament. Hibs can recover from a negative result this weekend, Scotland not so much

I'm a Hibs fan, so I want us to win.

I'm Scottish, so wish all our national teams well.

In terms of interest however, I can't make our game but will be keeping an eye on how we get on. I'll only check the final score from the international and probably won't even read a match report whether they win or lose.

Why? Because I lost interest in the national team years ago. Too many call ups for the usual suspects (normally from the then Old Firm) instead of picking form players from other clubs such as Hibs.

Hibs CAN recover yes, but would we? Dundee Utd are flying and slipping up this weekend would mean they could go top by beating us at Tannadice. I'm not sure we would overtake them should that happen.

No chance Scotland qualify even if they somehow win on Friday.

Agree re Scotland though. A more abject performance than the 1 I saw in Slovakia you would do well to find. I don't think we've a hope in hell of qualifying for Russia.

Yeah and we were flying as well and slipped up yet still top. Guess what we might go on a run and the super mighty Dundee Utd might draw or lose.

Nope not daft. Was an assumption based on the fact you stated that you stopped supporting Scotland purely because they were performing poorly (I meant to put that bit on bold when quoting you but was on my phone). You have since clarified that you only meant that's why you stopped attending games.

That's absolutely fine with me, yes. Doesn't really make a difference to me - I just found it strange.

No hard feelings - and Yes I would guess you probably have supported Hibs longer than me. I've probably supported Scotland longer than you, if you don't support them when they're s***e haha!

Interesting question!

I'm a very patriotic Scotland fan and a very supportive Hibs fan. I want both to win. Hibs games come around a lot more than Scotland games, so I would usually put Scotland ahead of Hibs. Now that I've seen Hibs win the Scottish Cup, I'll only get that excited if Scotland do something special in the World / Euros, unless Hibs win the SPL or a European competition.

What I find really strange is that I always want Scotland to win especially if it's against the Auld Enemy! However, this time I'm in the "can't get up for the game, we're very poor" camp. I went to the Lithuania game and couldn't believe how poor we were.

For the first time in a long time, I'm not even going to watch the game. I can't believe I'm saying that.
