    Just catching up on yesterdayís posts on Turnbulls Tornadoes and season 1972/73.
    Canít add anything to them,as they were pretty much spot on.
    Hibs had a player around that time who was a back up sweeper.
    IIRC he only ever got a game when Sloop was very rarely injured or as happened at times suspended.
    He was a fair haired lad whose first name was either Alex or Alan.
    Always thought he had a bit of quality about him,but he was never going to get anywhere as long as Sloop was there.
    Have no clue as to what happened in his career after he left Hibs.
    Can anyone fill in the blanks ?
    Maybes Alex Pringle sold to Dundee ended up Stateside IIRC

    It's definitely Murrayfield. You can see the stand at the right of the guy's raised arm is the old North West Corner Stand.
    Yes looks like Murrayfield as you can see the exits in the picture.

    Anyone recall why Neil Cooper got sent off that day at Perth? I know he did but itís escaped me.
    My recollection was going towards half time, playing well and 1-0 up when Houchen got sent off with about a minute to the break. I canít imagine Cooper had been sent off earlier than that. Lost the game 2nd half.

    My memory is we played them off the Park first half went 1-0 up in front of 6000 hibbies

    Houchey had a rush of blood early in the second half and booted Tommy Turner up the erchie Roddy Grant scored a last minute winner Neil Cooper was also sent off but you are correct probably after Houchen

    He could have bought a cheaper watch and sent his coat to Munro's with the saving.
    That is the England game March 1960 .England won.
    I couldnt find the attendance ,but 70.000 crowds for 5 nations games at Murrayfield would not be unusual back then.
    Ground record is 104.000 V Wales 1975.

    Mid sixties i worked at the Scotsman as a copy boy and made some extra cash selling souvenir papers/pictorials at the ground during 5 nations.
    One game V Wales ,70.000 plus in attendance, I got hit in the face with the ball ,as i was walking round the track. Sore one!!

    Back to the guy with the classy watch. Lucky he kept it ,being so obvious .
    Cop sergeant at the time who lived next street to us in Clerry told me the main probs they had with crowds at these games were pickpockets.
    Crowds packed like sardines.
    Easy pickings!
    The 1975 game V wales at Murrayfield had 104.000 crowd
    A world record that stood till 1999 .Oz V NZ game topped it.


    PS
    Does anyone remember the signs when entering Tynecastle back in the day

    Yes remember the signs at Tinycastle had them at Hampden as well. Can't recall seeing signs at Easter Road. I heard from a policeman in clery that guys would come through from the West for the big matches to pickpocket.Remember all the Police houses in Clery

    I always thought Hearts were in league with the pickpockets.The number of people you would see patting the pocket the wallet was in which was a real giveaway.

    The 2-4 game v Celtic. The biggest crowd Iíve been in at ER. Me and my pals went up to the ground around 2pm, probably earlier. We had learned that the only way in was to go early, before the police arrived, climb up the side of the gate and the. hide in the bushes on the slopes of the east terracing. We would sit quiet as mice and watch the shenanigans as people jumped over the wall and attempted to evade the cops.

    The ground would be getting busy early doors and you could safely make an appearance. We often stood above the walkway between the upper and lower terrace. A handy spot to watch the swedging. The only crowd Iíve been in that was so tighly packed was Scotland v Wales at Murrayfield, round about that time.
    Me too! I was 14 (I thought I was younger :-)) I was right down the front of the main terracing up against the wall with my dad. My memory is that, despite the hype before the game, Hibs didn't really turn up (or Celtic were just brilliant). Other significant memory is the surge forward of the crowd and being pinned up against the wall every time Hibs attacked. After that, I always insisted on standing in front of a crush barrier!

    The 104k was only those who went through the turnstiles. IIRC they estimated another 15k or so got in without paying. Think tickets were only for the stand in those days. IIRC we won & denied Wales Grand Slam, which were (or seemed to be) much rarer in those days!

    Apparently thousands of people left without even seeing the game, as they literally couldn't squeeze any more people on to the terracing.

    Some of the guys in my class at school went to a game at Murrayfield in 1980 (I think) and one of them actually passed out on the terracing and had to be taken out on a stretcher. He was in the school rugby team as well... the big wimp.

    Into the second half and the rain continued to pour but Orr and McGinlay were up to their old tricks as Orr set up McGinlay to fire home from a tight angle

    Thanks for the video, I watched it for the first time ever. I didn't know it existed.

    I was at ER to watch Hibs lose and on the bus back at Haymarket there was a sea of humanity. That's how I remember it anyway !


    Chancing my arm: the only other highlights I have always wanted to see is that of the 1974 Hibs 2 Celtic 4 .

    I even asked BBC Scotland if they could provide a copy in exchange for a charitable donation but they couldn't.

    Difficult finding any match reports to corroborate this

    That is why I have to rely on my dodgy memory

    Looking forward to the new HIBS in the nineties book coming out

    Maybe if we agree he was sent off around about half time ��

    I went to that game Scotland v Wales at Murrayfield in 1975.
    You could buy a ticket but it only 'guaranteed' you entry if you arrived a certain time before kickoff. You could also gain entry by paying at the gate. I arrived with a ticket only to find vast crowds milling around the entrances and no prospect of getting in. I walked around the perimeter of the stadium and at the rear of the stand side of the ground found a gap where someone had removed part of a metal fence and people were piling in for free. So inside the ground at last I climbed up the steps to the top of the terracing, only to find that the crowd was so tightly packed it was simply impossible to find a way through and onto the terracing. I tried in several places without success and eventually had to give up. I walked home with the increasingly distant roars of the crowd behind me and ended up watching the match on tv at home. Biggest crowd I was ever part of - or nearly part of.

    Caldwell 77
    Fletcher 88

    Hibernian reach the semifinals of the Scottish Cup after a hapless performance from Falkirk keeper Allan Ferguson gifting the first two goals to the deadliest of strikers Derek Riordan and Garry O’Connor

    The first when he made a mess of a Deeks’ long range freekick the second when he spilled a Deeks shot at the feet of Gazza

    Daniel McBreen hit back for Falkirk thanks to a Latapy assist but a strike by Ivan Sproule a header from Gary Caldwell and a shot from Steven Fletcher that Ferguson looked to have covered saw HIBS book their place in the semis

    Russell Latapy 68 appeared as a sub for the Bairns

    Hibs would face Hearts in the semi?

    Hibernian 2 v 0 Inverness CT

    Booth 58
    Stevenson 89

    Hibs claimed their fourth successive SPL win with this 2-0 victory over Inverness CT

    The talk after the game was all about the performance of young Calum Booth who put in a performance that belied his years and had many comparing him to John Brownlie

    Indeed Booth gave HIBS the lead just short of the hour when he collected a Derek Riordan pass outside the box and lifted the ball beyond Esson and into his top far corner

    Booth was then called into action at the other end of the park when he headered away a goalbound Inverness effort from underneath his own crossbar

    Lewis Stevenson on as a 77th minute substitute for Liam Miller scored one minute from the end when he curled a deflected effort past Esson to seal all three points

    Irvine

    This game played in driving rain Andy Harrow scored his first goal for Motherwell since signing from Aberdeen with a looping header over Roughie

    Ally Mauchlin of Motherwell was sent off for getting involved in one argument too many with Turnbull and Conroy

    Willie Irvine #1 scored his first goal for HIBS since signing from Motherwell when he met a freekick in the box from Brian ‘Chipper’ Rice and headed the ball just inside Nicky Walker’s left hand post

    Arbroath 1 v 1 Hibernian

    Blackley

    Arbroath took the lead through Tommy Yule and then made it tough for HIBS to break them down

    The equaliser came when Erich Schaedler took a short corner from Arthur Duncan this seemed to take the Arbroath defence by surprise Shades swung the ball in and the unlikely figure of John Blackley was there to bury the ball past Gordon Marshall

    What could go wrong?

    Smith 7
    Reilly 55 64

    A cracking game at Cappielow played in atrocious weather conditions in a driving gale and on a bog of a pitch

    Gordon Smith gave HIBS an early lead but Davie Shaw got stretchered off injured on the half hour leaving HIBS down to ten men Farquhar made it 1-1 going into the break

    Into the second half and Turnbull was awesome playing in two positions covering for Shaw. Lawrie Reilly hit a double and HIBS thought they were on easy street when they were awarded a penalty Jimmy Cairns stepped up and missed the penalty but the action was not finished as Neil Orr’s Dad Tommy scored for Morton in the 86th minute leaving HIBS hanging on and fighting for dear life

    Hearts 0 v 1 Hibernian

    Peggie

    This Match was replayed when Hearts who had been leading 1-0 at the Holy Ground had the rug pulled from under them when the match was abandoned due to several good humoured pitch invasions The Referee had had enough and decided to call it a day

    The replay took place at Tynecastle one week later and Hearts were supremely confident going into the game

    The Hibernians had the better of the play throughout the game and scored the only goal early in the second half through Nesbit Peggie

    Hearts did exert some pressure after the HIBS’ goal but this soon passed and HIBS went on to monopolise play and never looked threatened at any time

    I thought Calum Booth was going to go on and become a fantastic player for Hibs. Great goal that day.

    Prior to the signing of Sodje, Paalson, Towell and the return of Booth from loan, |I thought we were going down. Shows how dire we had been, none of the guys that came in sustained a good HIbs career, but they lifted a side that had been awful.

    In fairness to him, there's every possibility he's going to have a League Cup medal this season.
