If i tried to wind a Hearts fan up about a result 50 years ago i'd get a sympathetic look more than anything
Not all Hearts fans are aged 30 and under?
It was the 2nd greatest game in our history and it will never be forgotten.
If we had 7 Up as shirt sponsors I’d buy my first replica top since the time of the 7-0 game. The few I have have been hand me downs from my eldest, who was born in 1986 and fully appreciates the significance of that game.
In terms of sales and profit. I would imagine Hibs get the same slice as any other retailer, c 1/3 profit. Sales would increase, I’m certain. Probably never going to happen, but I’d rather have 7Up than a betting company.
7-0 was an iconic result for us, which is why we all know what it refers to even although the game was over 46 years ago.
Hearts fans will feel the same way about 5-1, which they'll be discussing in 2056 as they sit in the still to be completed Main Stand watching yet another failed attempt to get promotion from Scottish League One.
7-0 was an master-class in football, achieved by a team that was brought together by true and honest means - 5-1 wasn't!
We may as well all pitch up at Murrayfield next month and remind the Napoli fans of the time we scudded them 5-0 back when jesus was in nappies
You’ve just proved a point. We remember these results because they are memorable. I’m more than happy to tell my Catalan pals about Hibs drawing 4-4 at the Camp Nou and putting them out at ER in the return. That was nearly 60 years ago.
See that thread about travelling to away games in the 60’s- 47 replies. Football fans and nostalgia, a lovely mix.
Then there’s the one on Killie re-introducing safe standing. Another part of football once thought to be consigned to history, but hang on, the fans want to see it back!
