    The original YouTube video of SOL had well over a million views. They took it off for some reason

    Always delighted for JC watching that game back proud as punch on a day that meant so much to him.

    I see Tommy Craig about quite often round my way always want to talk to him about hibs never have the baws to pester the old guy though

    What a glorious day that was.

    Was down the front of the South, snowed on in the first half, could barely see the far goal and thought the game would be called off!

    The afternoon ended in glorious sunshine and a glorious SoL!

    Great day - very emotional time for me.

    Hampden in the snow.

    Brilliant performance.

    Still the best rendition of Sunshine on Leith IMO.

    The BBC coverage and interview with JC and the players at FT is fantastic.

    My god 13 years, what a day.

    I lost my father the year before. This was the first final I attended without him. When SOL started, I blubbed like a big bairn. Old guy next to me pulled my sleeve and asked if I was OK. I could hardly speak. Must have thought I was a complete idiot.

    Watched the highlights recently too - boy, was that team on fire!!

    Special word for JJ, you were there for 0-7 and 6-2 and this as well. Hibs legend!!!

    I remember going absolutely skitzo as Rob Jones and David Murphy weren’t on the pitch when the second half started. Big Rob told me at the captains dinner a couple of years back that they were both spending a penny. The whole of the left side of our defence was just not there!!!

    What a day though! Went for the hospitality option as well which made it extra special

    fantastic seeing that again, as I’m self isolating and it cheered me up no end.

    This might be controversial but I think I actually enjoyed the CIS Cup win more, on the day, than the Scottish Cup.

    There just seemed a bit less pressure and I was pretty relaxed all day. Enjoyed the pre match beers, enjoyed the game, straight to the parade in the evening then drank the night away. For the SC I was so wound up all day and just drained by the evening. Obviously as a complete weekend the SC was better but the CIS win was the first time I watched Hibs win a trophy and I was old enough to really understand it meant.

    Not controversial at all. In fact exactly the same for me.

    Moreover, there was a certain degree of confidence in that team and Collins. They delivered big time. But it didn't surprise us.

    I was freezing that day though, didnt travel back with a warm jacket. Anyway, superb day from early to late 👍

    What a support that day ...was as immense as the team

    There’s a video on YouTube from a flat outside Hampden listening to the roar of our first goal..one of my favourite Hibs vids....

    I flew to SF the day after our 1991 win. No sleep at all so was hoping to catch up on the flight. 40 minutes in I heard the guy behind me talking about the game. I turned round & he was wearing a Hibs top so that was that!!

    When we scored 3rd, my wife phoned me to say stop crying.
    I was too, tears running down my cheeks.

    At 5-1, in injury time my brother turned round and asked

    ‘ ‘do you think we’ll hold on’?

    Was totally serious!! Scarred by years of disappointment. Not that day though, best hibs performance I’ve seen in the flesh.

    Was over at 3-0 and I knew it. Was already celebrating. My dad was nervous though but I'm surprised to see so many others were. We completely strolled it that day. Never in doubt

    Yes my tears started at 3-0. Was in the south near the front with youngest one. Lots of fathers in tears around me with their children hugging them. We had seen Hibs win something and many thought it might be the last time in our lives we would witness it. But then came 2016.

    Just a glorious day all round and one I'll treasure for the rest of my days.

    After 2004 it ment a hell of a lot.

    Even after the fourth goal I’m thinking “This is Hibs we could still **** this up.”
    Yip. I had the 4-4 at Tynecastle etched in my memory. Being 2-4 up in the 87th minute and still end up drawing.

    Fully relaxed at 5-1, also took a henna over the seat and rolled my ankle.

    What a day. Back to the Harp and Castle for celebrations, the parade that night. JC at the front of the bus shouting “FIVE” over and over again.

    Said to my Dad, imagine what it will be like when we win the Scottish Cup.

    Never found out, as I missed 2016.

    I did a video blog which I will need to stitch together and turn into an actual film. Still makes me smile watching it.

    Magnificent day. Less so on the drive home when my windscreen wiper came off in the middle of a blizzard on the M6. Maybe wasn't such a bright idea to drive an N-reg Fiesta to Glasgow and back, only 3 months after passing my driving test. Worth it though, especially as *JCL alert* 2004 was my first final (first Hibs game in Scotland, in fact).

    What a day that was. Hibs were magnificent although only started to relax and enjoy it at 4-1!
    Exactly how I felt and always do,the bonus being a hibs supporter for 50+ years.

    Saturday night we went to see The Fall in the Renfrew Ferry then stayed over at my friends flat in Pollockshaws leaving a shortish walk to Hampden the next day. Caught a one way trip back to Peebles on the local supporters bus but alarm bells were ringing when they said it was just straight home to Peebles, so had to persuade a detour to let those of us off who were wanting to celebrate and enjoy the parade. The open top bus got down Leith Walk at about 30mph quicker than the ‘16 Scottish Cupper 🚌 💨 💨

    It was my last day in Iraq - the Gurkhas I had been working with had bought (and slaughtered) a goat from a local farmer and cooked it in my honour. Although we had a bespoke satellite link that gave a good reception I missed the game as I did not want to offend them by leaving them to watch "just" a Football game! Ironically, there was a Jambo civilian in our company who kept updating me with the score. Bizarre but true!!
