i don't understand why their was only 3k more at yesterdays game, St Johnstone only had 2k i think it was, we had 10K, i didn't watch much of saturdays game was their smaller segregation for that one ?
The League Cup final will be our 6th visit to Hampden in less than 14 months.
Must be a record surely?
Just goes to show how much we've progressed as a club. Yes it hurts when you get there and fall at the last hurdle but the fact we're consistently there means the chance of winning increases greatly. Additionally our league positions are getting more consistent.
I appreciate that when you start to achieve consistently expectations increase but let's enjoy these moments, we're doing well.
Fans generate an atmosphere. Hampden is a rubbish ground but I wouldn't change it. Going there feels special and my best Hibs memories are there.
I do think the fact it's single-tiered round three sides of the stadium definitely contributes towards a better atmosphere, especially compared to more modern stadia like Wembley, but yeah, I agree about the memories, wouldn't want to change it
I don't think there is much wrong with Hampden . The view was fine and the atmosphere on Sunday was the best I've been in for a long time. (5 years!).
I watched a bit of the Spain v Sweden game from Seville last week. Poor atmosphere and the crowd looked further away from the pitch than Hampden .
The constant moans about it being terrible for getting to and from are strange. The only stadium in the country that comes close in terms of good public transport links is Murrayfield. Then youíve also got itís proximity to the motorway and pubs etc. If you were building something from scratch youíd struggle to find a better location considering it would have to be in Glasgow or Edinburgh.
