Having been watching Hibs for over 50 years I consider myself thoroughly unoffendable at shouts, chants etc as I've heard it all before. Tonight however was a new low for me on a personal level. A Hibs fan singing what he thought was an amusing little ditty about Milligan being somewhat overly active in a masturbatory sense, and rounding it off by screaming "get him to F out of my club" to his adoring little bunch of ned friends, who naturally nodded their heads in agreement. This was outside the FF at half time fag break. They then went on to sing about the Ibrox disaster on their way back in to the ground.
I'm not a sensitive soul but have noticed these vermin seem to crawl out from under their respective rocks when we play either of the bigot brothers. Evening kick offs seem to add fuel of an alcoholic variety to these occasions. At the Celtic game I saw a supposed Hibs fan stamp on and break a seat, and tonight this. Wow, where do these morons come from?
In a feeble attempt to lighten the mood somewhat, another guy screamed at Kamberi during the match "You're worse than Lukaku"

Delighted with the point tonight by the way, maybe I'm just getting too old for this σκατα!

Normally I'd be right with you on this, but tonight looking around in the singing section at the amount of people there who obviously have no tickets for there and listening to their odious, puerile arse dribble it really annoyed me.

I'd like to make it perfectly clear that these morons are nothing to do with the section guys themselves who were great again tonight although I take it the regular drummer is on holiday.

Let me be absolutely clear, the ********s in our support deserve to feel the full force of the law, and I support Hibs in their stance on that matter.

It does beg the question though, why do we remain silent on sectarian singing in our stadium, and the vile sectarian abuse aimed at both our previous managers?

I fully understand the argument attached to "getting our own house in order" but it needn't absolve our board from condemning the behaviour of others, especially when aimed at our support and employees.

Snowflakes here there and everywhere these days. Back in the day there were mass brawls breaking out in the terracings, stones, bottles, darts and cans of lager being thrown into the opposition, pitch invasions every other derby etc.

I remember attending a run of the mill away Scottish Cup tie against East Fife back in the early eighties no segregation when the Methil skins/punks came wading into us with bike chains, hammers and other weapons until we fought back returning them back into their own end.

When the Hibs players pull on the jersey they are representing our club. When the fans put their colours on and go to games they are too.

Like it or not, if say 100 out of 16,000 hibs fans do something like whatís been said on this thread, it ends up with all of us labelled as the same.

Iím fed up answering questions from people about these incidents as if the idiots are acting in the name of our great club. Sadly if youíre labelled as a Hibs fan, then the only thing people will associate you with is what is in the mainstream media.

Youíre a hibby? Do you throw bottles at the opposing players? Did you invade the pitch and break the crossbar at Hampden?

No mention of many of the great things associated with being a hibs fan, such as the Dnipro appeal or our brilliant food bank donations. Nah thatís not a juicy enough story and doesnít sell newspapers so the Glasgow dominated media will just write about whatever makes us look bad.

Pretty depressing IMO and no wonder Leanne was raging. Football has always attracted a small minority of brainless aggressive morons who use it as a vehicle to practice being a bell end.

Zero tolerance approach and we need these people to be taken away from our great club.

Not seen it mentioned but a drumstick was thrown from the top tier of the FF in the first half. Think it was just after they scored and landed on the grass just short of the pitch.

Disorder at football matches in 2019 bears no resemblance to what most of us have grown up with. Two incidents in as many games for us has set the alarm bells off a bit, but itís just one step back after many steps forward. As bad as last nights looked, the bottom line was no blows were exchanged and no player was ďattackedĒ. The boy will have a day in court, a lengthy ER ban and a fine to look forward to. Last weeks throwing of a glass bottle was a far more serious incident.
Both isolated incidents and Iíd be more concerned if we were talking about large numbers of fans being involved in disorder. You want to keep the sizzling atmosphere that goes with Derbyís and Old Firm encounters, but there will always be chance of things spilling over as a result. Next week will be different against Motherwell, and I have nothing to worry about when I bring my two young daughters along with my wife to enjoy a family outing at Easter Road. The same can be said for most games really.

Agreed. It is a collective responsibility to get rid of such reprobates.

Have you heard any racist comments from fans around you? The headlines may not have been good after the last two games but it was down to the actions of only two fans. I’m not seeing any significant change in the behaviour of our fans over the past ten years, we are in the main a decent bunch.

Have you heard any racist comments from fans around you? The headlines may not have been good after the last two games but it was down to the actions of only two fans. Iím not seeing any significant change in the behaviour of our fans over the past ten years, we are in the main a decent bunch.

Yes I have. Not sure where you sit but as itís been mentioned, the FF upper had a large group of Neds blocking the stairwells, arguing with stewards, standing on the edge of the FF upper with no one doing anything about it. Itís not just my daughter but there are other kids around us and personally speaking I think the behaviour or others is getting worse generally.

I canít be the only one that is considering not renewing my ST due to recent events. I take my young daughter to every home games and 5/6 away games every season. I can tolerate the language as itís part of the game but the racism, object throwing, aggression from some of our fans is getting too much. I sit in the FF upper so can relate to some of the comments already mentioned in here...

Having been watching Hibs for over 50 years I consider myself thoroughly unoffendable at shouts, chants etc as I've heard it all before. Tonight however was a new low for me on a personal level. A Hibs fan singing what he thought was an amusing little ditty about Milligan being somewhat overly active in a masturbatory sense, and rounding it off by screaming "get him to F out of my club" to his adoring little bunch of ned friends, who naturally nodded their heads in agreement. This was outside the FF at half time fag break. They then went on to sing about the Ibrox disaster on their way back in to the ground.
I'm not a sensitive soul but have noticed these vermin seem to crawl out from under their respective rocks when we play either of the bigot brothers. Evening kick offs seem to add fuel of an alcoholic variety to these occasions. At the Celtic game I saw a supposed Hibs fan stamp on and break a seat, and tonight this. Wow, where do these morons come from?
In a feeble attempt to lighten the mood somewhat, another guy screamed at Kamberi during the match "You're worse than Lukaku"

Delighted with the point tonight by the way, maybe I'm just getting too old for this σκατα!

I have now seen several posts on a few threads saying that a drumstick was thrown from the FF Upper. I would normally expect these posts to be shot down in flames if untrue so therefore assume it did happen. Someone must know and if it did happen then we need to start weeding theses guys out of our support before someone gets seriously hurt.

The problem also is they search all the people entering early but then when it starts to get really busy nearer kick off they stop searching . Now Iíd hazard a guess that the people bringing flares, alcohol etc into the ground arenít the ones arriving early

Just a few thoughts on Friday night's match FWIW.

I just got a sense that there was a horrible atmosphere in the air before this match. Even more so than usual for this fixture.

There seemed to be an even larger police presence around the ground than usual. It was as if they were expecting trouble. I saw a very large group of young blokes (Hibs supporters) being "kettled" (for want of a better expression) in Montgomery Street prior to KO, with mounted police well in attendance. Further along the street, at the Easter Road junction with Montgomery Street, mounted police and vans had also blocked off access to Easter Road itself.

I can well understand Leeann Dempster's, and the club's, anger and frustration at the behaviour of some individuals given all the hard work she and others have put in to result in Hibernian FC this year being the Scottish FA Community Club of the Year.

Hibernian FC is a business. Why would the Police fund testing a businesses customers.
Ball is firmly in the court of the club and decent supporters to force out the ********s.

Nothing the club or supporters could do about the guy on Friday.
He is caught, banned for life and going to court.

However, our fans should have identified the guy who threw the bottle.
That incident is a hundred times worse than Friday's guy and sectarian singing and could have resulted in death.
Let that sink in. One of our supporters could have killed a player or a fellow fan.
Fans around that guy should have captured him and handed him over.
These guys are dragging us through the **** and if the good supporters don't want this to continue they need to step up to the plate.

As for the neds that infiltrated the singing section on Friday night, that should have been sorted out by a load of stewards checking the tickets of fans standing there and getting rid of those without tickets to be in that section.

It's there for families so kids can come to games without hearing too much adult content but I don't think 'adult content' should include racist abuse and violence anywhere in the ground. I think the idea is that we get rid of the 'fans' who are being racist and violent so we can watch our team without their bile. Zero tolerance before this gets worse.

Snowflakes here there and everywhere these days. Back in the day there were mass brawls breaking out in the terracings, stones, bottles, darts and cans of lager being thrown into the opposition, pitch invasions every other derby etc.

I remember attending a run of the mill away Scottish Cup tie against East Fife back in the early eighties no segregation when the Methil skins/punks came wading into us with bike chains, hammers and other weapons until we fought back returning them back into their own end.

I'm sorry but its like chalk and cheese compared to then and now.

Like it or not Hibs v Rangers has become the powder keg fixture on the football calendar. Their hatred of us has ramped up a fair few levels and it's not hard to argue the feeling is mutual.

Maybe it's time to apply the same rules as for Old Firm games and stop having evening kick offs? It's a shame because I enjoy a late kick off after a few post work beers but as always a minority don't know their limits, tear the erse out it and act like dicks.

I also don't think we should lose sight of the fact that incidents like Friday night are still the actions of a minority and are unusual hence why there is so much discussion about it. I've seen chat over the last couple of days about 'mass brawls' and the like suggesting every other football match sees running battles in the street which is total nonsense.

The vast majority of Scottish football games pass off with little or no incident; there have been games in recent times at which there was no Police presence at all and I don't recall any reports of increased trouble. There should certainly be tough action against individuals acting like we have seen in the last couple of weeks but I genuinely don't believe there is any need for radical changes.

Just report what you saw and the seat numbers of those responsible to the club.
The culprits won't know who has reported them.
Do it anonymously if you want.
It's not like reporting a crime to the Police.
The club will pull them in, they will deny it and the club will keep it on file if they can't prove it.
Perhaps someone has reported their bad behaviour previously and your report will be the final straw.
When you move next season some other poor ******* will have to sit next to them.
The likely hood is they will continue to behave in the same way.
You need to step up to the plate.

Sadly the bigger games bring out the idiots and they let down the whole club. 99.9% of hibs fans were no bother, shame the actions of some morons have to drag us all through the mud.

He came on to kick the ball away from Taveniers feet to try and be a smart arse. God only knows what exactly he was hoping to achieve! Made a complete and utter fanny of himself. I don't think he came on to assault the player, he was obviously a drunken wee ned who was tryna be funny and smart by kicking the ball away from Tavenier but nevertheless he should never have been on the pitch. Made an absolute embarrassment of himself and the club.

There was only a set of steps separating us from the East Fife fans in the shed area and myself and my mate at the time were situated there. I guarantee you at one point near the start of the match a number of their fans who mostly looked like skinheads in crombie type threads came wading across the steps piling in waving bike chains and other assorted weapons around.

👍 I would rather he had a custodial/community service sentence and the judge/fiscal should have taken into consideration the chances of retaliation before releasing his name.

I donít see anybody ďdoing cartwheelsĒ about it.

Some imagination you have, very creative. However, Iím sure heíll survive his ordeal and reflect on the stupidity of actions. In fact maybe it will give him time to pause and think, perhaps even pivotal a moment in his life. He transforms from burgeoning chavvy asshole to reformed Joe Citizen, volunteers at the local old peopleís day centre and renounces cocaine fuelled Friday nights at the fitbaw. After that the worldís his oyster.

Snowflakes here there and everywhere these days. Back in the day there were mass brawls breaking out in the terracings, stones, bottles, darts and cans of lager being thrown into the opposition, pitch invasions every other derby etc.

I remember attending a run of the mill away Scottish Cup tie against East Fife back in the early eighties no segregation when the Methil skins/punks came wading into us with bike chains, hammers and other weapons until we fought back returning them back into their own end.

I'm sorry but its like chalk and cheese compared to then and now.

Mon the Cabbage!!!

👍 I would rather he had a custodial/community service sentence and the judge/fiscal should have taken into consideration the chances of retaliation before releasing his name. The last thing I am is delighted over it and that would be the same if it was a supporter of any other club against the huns too. Mind the job loss/threats that other guy got after the final too?

Iím with you here. The mob rule vigilante stuff you are suggesting is unacceptable ina supposedly civilised society. But we do have a precedent here. You will remember the young lad that ran on to the pitch and punched rangers keeper Andy Goram. He was punished in law and named and shamed and, to the best of my knowledge, is still barred from ER but was not attacked by hoards of Rangers fans. Maybe the new club is follow followed by a different animal of course

I note the guy from Friday has pled guilty to Breach of the Peace.
The interesting thing about the guy is he has no previous convictions.
I know we are all annoyed at the guy but all things considered he shouldn't go to jail.
I note lots of abusive posts from Rangers fans on his facebook account.
Stupid laddy has messed up bigtime.
A shame for his family if they get dragged into this.
He has a kid, maybe this is a wake up call he needed to grow up and get his **** together.
Last thing a kid needs is a **** father.

He can't have been that bothered about the prospect of being named and shamed considering he did it live on TV, in a stadium with 20,000 people watching, FFS.

Heíll probably have a torrid time for a while, with a lot of people wading in just for the sake of it.

After that, nobody will give a monkeys and heíll just get on with his life.

Itís just the way of the world now so I wouldnít have any great concern for his long term wellbeing.

100% agree with this. The last thing this lad needs is jail. He needs rehabilitation and community service - not brutalisation which would happen in prison. He shouldnít be allowed back in Easter Road for the foreseeable future however, so he understands the severity of dragging our clubís name through the dirt.

The hallmark of a decent society is to rehabilitate, and not brutalise. Prison brutalises people - heís a 21 year old first time offender. He should get the chance to to redeem himself. At the end of the day, he messed up majorly, but the guy shouldnít have his life ruined over it at the age of 21 - he was clearly off his face, and he needs to know what he did was unacceptable. He has been done for breach of the peace, and not assault or anything more severe though. He doesnít deserve disproportionate action just because of the media outcry.

It`s the first smell that comes to mind when reminiscing over the old Bayview ground.

Trouble at Hibs games in the past was not just exclusive to the big occasions and biggest clubs - games against some of the smaller clubs like East Fife, Motherwell, Ayr Utd, St Mirren and Airdrie to name but a few would often be fixtures where violence would break out.

He's 21 is he not? Hardly a kid and a father as well.

The guys made a mistake that he should have to pay for, and I agree he shouldn't go to jail.

I would be quite satisfied if he was given a community sentence and was issued a lifetime ban from Easter road.

That's 2 big mistakes :wink:.
Will pay for both.
Should probably abstain from big decisions until further notice.

I don't smell it,
I think I was at the same game! Methil and the old Bayview was just along the road for me and it was a Wednesday night. Crap evening and we got beaten 2 nil. Place was absolutely rammed and was/is one of my worst days out following Hibs. Mass fights breaking out everywhere going back to my car (which incidentally was my first ever, a vauxhall Chevette saloon in metallic lime green...... )

You are spot on.
It was exactly as you describe.
Visits to the likes of Kilmarnock,Dundee and Airdrie back then was pretty grim in terms of fighting and supporters buses being ambushed after the game.

If i had kept a £ for every broken bus window/attacks i witnessed back in the day....
i could have gave Rod the money for Super Leigh ;-)

I don't excuse the recent behaviour inside football grounds and ER
However,(Ibrox apart;-))
it is far safer these days.
No comparison. imo
Segregation, no bevvy in grounds and seating has influenced this of course.

Back in the day money was short

It was not cans of lager that were thrown it was cans of pish

I went through to East Fife away in the Scottish Cup that night with the Carlton Branch and like most hibbies we were late getting into the ground

IIRC it was mobbed absolutely freezing and HIBS were pish!

Hibs never turned up and I do not recall seeing any trouble

The only good thing that came out of that fixture was Gordon Juke Box Durie :greengrin

Definitely trouble that day. I got belted by an object thrown from home end. I was taken around the pitch and given bit treatment. Next day called into head masters office. He checked I was ok then wanted to talk about the game. Turned out he was an East Fife supporter and had seen me taken round the pitch

Is this the "Kangaroo court" thread ???

Or the "Barrack room lawyers" one??

Guy as far as i can tell has no previous and is being hit with a Breach of the Peace charge. FWIW my first offence was also a BoP and i was admonished so why not admonish him with a warning as to future behaviour?
Problem seems to me that the Hun media need to be placated and making an example of this guy would satiate them enormously. They have never forgiven the "exuberance" of 21/05/2016.

Well said. :aok:
The consequences of his actions are of course a court appearance, criminal record, public and personal humiliation.
Not to mention the ban he will get from the Club.
How long that will really be... who nows ?
Should it be a life ban ?
If his actions were drink/drug related, i don't think it should be.
I do not know him .
But...
We all make mistakes in life.
He is paying for this one.

Sorry to hear that defo more ********s back in the day

As others have said attending any away fixture had its hazards

I could tell you a few hair raising tales but most involve the Huns

One of the worst nights I experienced ever back then was being through there midweek night in the old league cup sections format iirc. Horrible place especially when there weren't many supporters had traveled through as we were pretty much dug s---e back then and money was tight for most folk with that format not very popular either.

Intercity 125 travel was just in its infancy back then.

I think the courts will come down heavy on the three individuals.

Depends what they are charged with.

The Birmingham fan will do time.

And if I'm being honest I hope the so called Hibs fan gets jail, if only to stop it happening again.

But the thing is jail time for this guy won't stop it happening. If the death penalty doesn't stop murder you have to think deterrents dont work.
Well maybe an electric fence ⚡😮

I tend to agree with that
The bunnet bandit did not appear to be bevvied the way/speed he ran on the pitch.
And no doubt he knew how it would end up.
No you cant stop all those determined to do such things.

Electric fences ?

Don't hold back there .
Go the full hog
Moats round the pitches, filled with electric eels and piranha fish.
Take yer fishing rod in case the game is rotten.
On that ,i think moats were used in South/Central America many years ago.
Not sure about the piranhas though !

Yes, that song is now.
I disliked the man as much as another Hibernian who went through that "Hands of Hibs" period.
Our younger fans should not need to be chanting this now.
