    Your favourite moment (so far!) of the Hearts Banter Years

    So, so many to choose from. We may have been relegated, we may have been pumped in a cup final by our city rivals but no team has given such sustained glee and joy to the world as HMFC in these last few years. May we be forever grateful to Budge, Levein, Your Daniel and also Robbie Replay for giving us some cheer in these difficult times.

    Just realised - I left out Ian Cathro! How could I manage that?

    Do you think your security can keep you in purity, you will not shake us off above or below. Scottish friction, Scottish fiction

    Can we add the game against St Mirren last season, where some twat from Jambos Kickback predicted a win, then the league being finished early, with St Mirren being demoted as a result?

    That went well.

    There were a few moments on the Romanov years when everything had gone pure Salvador Dali. There was the magic sticks period, some sort of Eastern European psychic witch doctor character (Ravi? Yani?)

    Whilst last night is the worst result of the lot, I'm not sure anything will beat Obika and the events that unfolded as they tried to scrape their way to reconstruction.

    Can we make multiple selection or have an 'all of the above' option please

    This is a truly joyous time to be a Hibs fan laughing at them.

    They have been getting worse and worse with every minute Budge is at the helm and it will only continue once FOH takes over.

    They will soon be an established Championship side.

    You could have made the list sooooooooooo much longer!!!

    Brilliant thread.

    Each one of those listed deserves a thread of its own so to have all these sweet memories together is fantastic.

    Natural Order is my fav Hibs related one but the St Mirren game last year was pure gold.

    That’s harsh. More like a classic yo yo club... very decent in the 2nd tier but the top flight often proves too much for them.

    Don't forget their training methods, which IIRC were something akin to WW2-era army boot-camp training.

    I especially liked when they claimed "Hearts privilege" was a thing and the fact they are such a massive club means they wouldn't be relegated.

    That worked out well.

    Someone on 1leagueback compared Anne Budge to Rod Petrie; they seem to be forgetting that for some of the failings under RP on the pitch, off it we were in exceptionally healthy shape off it, and the successor (which he would have helped appoint) was Leeanne Dempster!

    It's really difficult to chose. Winning the "we tried really hard" trophy up there too.

    Disappointed that Hearts players "high-fiving" supporters when they were beating 9 man ICT in injury time and somehow got beat in the League Cup semi isn't listed.

    The massive new stadium and champions league football. Now they are scraping draws with Arbroath and getting pumped by Highland League teams.

    It's a tough choice, but I think I'd have to go for the 2-2 cup game. Particularly as they'd 'ended us as a club' four years before. Then they helped hand us the Holy Grail. You couldn't make it up.

    I still like them having a castle view lounge that is deficient to the tune of one complete castle view, alfresco press area, no actual directors box, the excitement generated by the escalator to nowhere and their discovery of the potato based food product known as chips and the fanfare that followed.

    Allisbarry getting the decimal point in the wrong place when he was quoting the many millions that were kicking about just before their administration.

    The plum kicking the Russian hat which was actually a cossack hat that proved to be the extent of their protest to Romanov destroying their club.

    Their never ending share issue on the journey to fan ownership.

    Then there's Brora against big spending Hearts.

    I could go on.

    Opened the BBC Sports app this morning, usually never a Scottish story one the front page but there was Brora's victory over them. for that alone I voted for the result last night.


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Never going to be anything other than 2-2. My favourite game outside the cup final.

    There are so many to choose from over the years but for me it’s down to two either the jambos I know raving about their mew mega stand coming up which in there words “so big and would pay for itself when filled with supporters (not true)each week through hospitality etc only to still have a (1) lower capacity than the leith San Siro (2) go well over budget and still not finished but finally (3) forgetting to order the seats the second one which is my personal favorite searching for new manager taking six to seven weeks and household names in the management world being mentioned (myself and other hibbys fearing the outcome who they were going to get in) they announce potter !!!!! Absolutely literally fell down roaring with laughter in the house whilst hearing it on sky sports priceless !!

    When Sparky took that free kick at ER that went about 3 foot over MacDonald's line but got disallowed, and then got one from a similar range at Tynecastle in the next game.
    Pick that oot
