    Ally had plenty speed between the ears. Where it's most needed.
    Also a very clever man I think he was a financial advisor or something along these lines. One of the few players who smoked at the time

    He used to work for Bank of Scotland until he signed for Southampton.

    Might have been his cousin Tony who was also a right winger ?
    Tony played at Salvesen in the year below me, not aware of him playing after that.

    Marinello's was on Leith Walk without doubt but I think he called the West port pub the same.

    That and the Lord Darnley were heavily frequented by Post Office workers who had offices nearby.
    Marinellos was on Leith walkand it wasn't the Lord darnley that he had it was at the bottom of Laurieston Road not far from lord darnleys

    Marinello's in Leith Walk was down near the bottom, left hand side going down the Walk it used to be called Copperfields and it would stay open at the time to 4 in the morning, so I was told Hic.
    Peter was a really nice guy sometimes he was taken a loan of by some real nasty ones.
    Great player in his day and well remember the newspaper headlines when Him and Joe McBride senior destroyed the hun at Ipox when the swapped numbers and places on the park.

    Had that top. My mate who was a jambo was the spitting image of Peter and would sometimes wear my Hibs top as he thought he was Marinello mk2. I had to wear his Hearts top so it's a time of my life I want to forget.

    My fav ever Hibs strip, prior to the 1-1 draw with Motherwell, a disappointing result dropping a point.

    I was on a cruise a few years ago and I met a Barrow fan and when I told him I supported Hibernian he informed me that his all time favourite player is Peter Marinello

    I just happened to have that image as wallpaper on my iPhone

    He was made up

    There's a cream for that.

    Great thread. Reading through it, I was struck by the subjects raised, that would merit a thread of their own:

    1. The cultural differences between Hibs and Hearts.
    2. Why modern players can’t cross a ball.
    3. Missionary sex (is it dull?)

    One of my earliest games there. IIRC Peter McCloy was the Motherwell goalie that day and despite the snow on the pitch he somehow let the ball slip through his hands for the Hibs goal. To top it all off, it was my birthday 😀

    3. Not with a beautiful woman.

    2. Ball is too light now and needs too much precision.

    1. Tynecastle is where the golf club meets neo fascism. Hearts pompous, arrogant and judgemental. Maroon is a horrible color for a strip. Gorgie depressing and dark and smells. Their owners sum them up Mercer, Robinson, Romanov and Budge.

    Your comment on the colour maroon reminded me of a piece of writing by the Scottish poet, Alan Bold. Alan was a great Hibs man & IIRC his piece eulogised the colour green. He talked about freshness, the colour of the grass and spring etc. He then described maroon as (i paraphrase)"last night's cheap red wine spilled in an overflowing ashtray".
    Perfect really!!

    Sums it up perfectly. Or when you have drunk that cheap bottle of wine. Get up in the middle of the night feeling sick. Don't make it to the bathroom and spew over your fawn bedroom carpet. So unwell you just go back to bed. Wake up in the morning feeling awful and you see the maroon stain on the carpet and feel sick again.

    The pub you refer to was for years known as The Kenmore
    It is/was on the corner of Lauriston Street (down from the Sacred Heart) and (east) Fountainbridge.
    A good pub before the go go days !!

    Pretty sure I read that ‘Nello was first introduced to the ‘big team’ on the tour of Ghana and Nigeria where the locals although obviously biased were applauding and oohing and aahing at Marinello’s speed, ball control, trickery, dribbling skills and all round wing wizardry

    They just could not get enough

    I think John "spud" Murphy, like Peter was new to the squad ]

    Some trivia
    Efe Ambrose played for a club in Nigeria Hibs met on that tour.
    Hibernian.... first British club to tour Africa
    One of the teams we played on the tour did not have boots for all their players.
    Hibs gave them boots.
    Or it was going to be barefoot !!
    True story !

    Eric Stevenson in his book said John Murphy and Peter Marinello wanted to go out drinking with the ‘ boys ‘ Willie Wilson advised against it

    Stevie says he has never seen a person so ill the following day as ‘Nello,
