    Because they didn't exist before then.


    You know what they're like, they have to try to outdo Hibs at every turn, so pretending to be one year older is true to form.

    There is no record of when they officially were formed I don`t think. They just say 1874 because we were formed in 1875. Kind of childish nonsense that you expect from them really.

    They applied to join the SFL in 1874 but their cheque bounced.

    They are like pub bores.

    It`s like if one club has one member of staff on the Sex Offenders Register, they will invariably have had two. Oh wait......

    Liverpool pipped to the title on the last day on goal difference in 88? That's nothing they've done it twice.

    There was a team called St Andrews in 1874. Changed their name to Hearts in 1875.

    They did exist in 1874 but folded due to lack of members. Only two players were left and they joined St Andrews then persuaded them to change their name to Hearts.

    The original Hearts strip was a white jersey with a maroon heart and then switched to red, white and blue hoops in 1876 after a merger with the St Andrews club. The more familiar maroon tops were introduced in 1878.

    I was just about to type something similar.
    Mature, sensible signature required for responsible position. Good prospects for the right candidate. Apply within.

    I believe most of the squad were single handedly winning the civil war in 1874.

    I thought they folded
    And it was a men's dance club that assumed the name, nothing to do with that lot before it, could be wrong though

    Believe the maroon came about due to washing accident when the blue and red colours ran to create the bloody turd colour, sure I read that somewhere (maybe mcraes battalion book)

    Hmmm ... seems familiar

    correct about the dance club thing. they were based, or "hung aboot outside" the Oddfellows building, which is still in Forest RD. opposite Sandy Bell's pub. don't know why they hung aboot, but the mind boggles. well named, that building is though.

    I thought they formed as a group from a mens dancing club ( similar to cc blooms).

    and also played in blue and white until they tried to avoid paying for the correct washing up powder which ruined the colours in the wash and the strips came out a dirty turd coloured maroon....HoMFC, cheating and stealing and avoiding bills since 187...ermm 1875 or whenever

    Most likely picking blue and white to be an Edinburgh version of Glasgow Rangers who had been formed a couple of years earlier. I also thought they used a cheap (lidl) washing powder which turned their tops pink and they played in pink for a few years. Also heard that inside tynecastle they refer to thei ground as "The pink palace".

    In 1884 they were the first club to be suspended by the SFL for cheating ( ie playing 2 ineligible professional players) so nothing new once a cheat always a cheat. As for being formed in 1874 it would seem that a group of friends from a dance club had the idea in 1874 but they never actually played proper matches till 1875.

    Could the admins change the title of this thread to reflect the truth?

    Which Civil War?

    They'd have been 230 years too late for the English Civil War, and 9 years too late for the American one.

    Maybe there was one going on in South America somewhere?
