    Anyone remember a friendly against Middlesborough at Easter Rd, must have been in the early 70s?

    Jack Charlton was their manager.

    They played a hundred-miles-an-hour pressing game (first time I'd witnessed it) and wiped the floor with the Hibees. I think it was about 0-4.

    Early memories of Shearer playing against us for Blackburn, getting subbed to a chorus of ‘what a waste of money!’....they’d just signed him for a massive fee, in those days. Can someone verify this as I may have dreamed it🤔😂

    Nice thread to resurrect.

    This was the game when the England Selection Committee came up to ER to watch both Baker and Clough go head to head. Baker scored a hat trick and made his full England debut 16 days later getting a goal and an assist.

    Ex Celtic player Willie Fernie made Middlesborough tick. Between him and Johnstone it was a master class in inside forward play.Fernie orchestrated a free kick routine-three players made dummy runs at the ball and the fourth player almost smashed the bar, the ball rebounded nearly to half way-Johnstone chipped their defence and Joe rounded the keeper and put it in the net. Some things you never forget.

    Is that the one where Benji scored one of the best goals I've seen in my life?
    Was that the one where Fletcher had the ball played in to his feet, back to goal, open his legs and let the ball run underneath through to Benji?

    I ken I’m getting auld but I seem to remember pumping Chelsea at ER in 1985 or 86 and Willie Irvine ( the other one) scoring a hat trick. Am I totally imagining that?!

    1986 4-1 Hibs. The game was part of the Durie transfer deal. Remember singing: "You should have stayed with Hibees".

    Was that late 70s early 80s, I mind loads of sticky buns turned up cos Jock Wallace was the CC manager at the time. There was bother outside the main stand and along ER after the game with the buns.
    I believe you're getting mixed up with Leicester City. Kicked off big time outside then the Macs bar. I went down for the second game to Filbert St on a freezing January night to see 2-0 victory.

    Coventry City? I'm sure I remember John Salako playing for them at ER.
    From a different era but we played Coventry who wore a Chocolate Brown kit in the Skol Trophy around 1980 I would guess

    Ah your right, just googled it, Jock Wallace was Leicester City manager from 78 to 82.

    My first Hibs match was against Newcastle Utd at Easter Road, 1969 I think. Sure it was a 0-0 draw.

    I remember us at home to Middlesboro in a pre-season game around 2004, Stewart Downing was playing for Middlesboro and he was different class, thundering in long range shots with both feet and basically running the show. He went on to have a really good career but I honestly thought he'd have an even better one, he looked a stand-out.

    We played Boro a couple times in the 00s, 1-0 win in 07 (Ross Campbell late winner) and 2-3 the following season (Fletcher double, then we collapsed).

    I remember playing them when Gascoigne played for them too.

    Think it was 1-0 but no idea if it was to us or them.

    My first ever Hibs game was the 2-2 draw with Chelsea. Also Keith Wright's debut.

    I remember that game (and chant) well too! Pretty sure he'd just signed earlier that day too. But he did play that day on his debut and was subject to some fancy "chants"

    Really? I assume it must have been the 2007 game, seems a long long time ago.

    I was at all 4 ER matches and 2 at Tynecastle on the 6th . My main memory of the tournament is very narrowly missing a kicking on way out of Tynecastle from a brave group of Jambos who`d waited 2 hours to attack lone Hibbies .

    I recall the song at the game, cant remember if it was when he was subbed or just in general.
