    10 years ago on Friday ....

    ..... marks the 10th anniversary of us humping the Yams 6-2 at ER. Giving them a goal of a start, Mixu's hattrick, O'Neill's goal, Zitelli scoring and then Latapy rounding of the mawling with his superb volley. As I recall Niemi had a few great saves too. The funiest part of the whole night for me though was when Cameron got the consolation at the end and the Hibs support rising, almost as one, to sarcastically applaud the goal - hilarious. Cameron looked like he'd wished he'd missed!

    This win kept us in 2nd place in the league above the Huns and saw us finish the season in 3rd place.

    The team that famous night was - Colgan, Lovell, G. Smith, Sauzee, Fenwick, Laursen, O'Neil, Jack, Latapy, Paatelainen, Zitelli.

    I was there, remember going 1-0 down and thinking "here we go again, decent team and we go and blow it against hearts as usual". How wrong i was!

    Nope, after we went one down we were ripping into them and for probably the only time in my life I felt totally confident. It felt strange but I said to my boys "relax, we are going to win this. easy"

    normally I wouldn't relax if we were 3 up with a minute to go....
    Alcohol IS the answer, but I forget the question...

    Did Matty Jack not go off injured early and had to be replaced by the lad from Trinidad whose name escapes me due to age and drink edit Lyndon Andrews

    Went off after about 20 mins. John O'Neill was superb that night as was Russ.

    It was one of the best performances I've seen from Hibs. It was sublime football and only Aunty Nelly saved the score from being in double figures. I remember feeling emotional, knowing that I had never seen a derby like that since making my spectator debut twenty seven years earlier and, being of sour pussed disposition, feeling that I might never see another.

    We were magnificent and to be fair to them they battled hard, albeit that they were outclassed. The Hibs fans actually gave them a clap when they scored a few minutes from time, not being at all ironic.

    I was only six at the time and remember that night well. Still got the "Six of the best" video, anyone else got it?

    Unreal. Little needs saying to describe that night.

    can't believe it's been 10 years. One of the best nights of my life as a Hibs supporter but it's kinda sad when you see how many times they've scored 4+ goals against us since then.
    We're definitely due them one, bring on the 7th!
    Hopefully the players will see this as more than just a football game and they will realize that its a "battle" against this mob.

    If the players go into this thinking its just another fancy flick and trick game, they are in serious trouble.

    Lets battle them and lets battle them hard.

    I remember chanting "WE WANT SEVEN". The faces on the yams just over from my seat in the west was priceless!

    I could only afford to go to 22/10/00 or the game beforehand. The only imaginable time I could regret seeing Hibs pump Rangers in person... Gutted.

    Great night. That goal from Latapy is my favourite Hibs goal ever.


    However, its been ten years since I was 18.

    The only drawback to that night was that there were only about 1500 of them there!

    Best summed up for me, Fulton sinking to his knees after John O'Neil had just made it 5 with still plenty of time on the clock for a few more.

    In the run up to this I had to put up with my parents and brother going on about how they were going on holiday to the nice warm weather while I was cold and wet back in Scotland.

    Only thing was that I got a loan of their season tickets for the week...

    Guess who was laughing loudest when they got back!?
