The Tears of a Clown

Now if there's a smile upon my face…

Hearts 0 – Hibs 1!

01 Riordan does it again! Is there any Hibby, with the possible exception of Ian Murray, that takes so much pleasure at putting one over Hibernian’s Edinburgh rivals?

It ended in high drama last night – with a penalty eleven minutes from time after Hibs hit man Riordan went tumbling in the box before getting up to coolly side-foot the ball inside the oppositon’s right-hand post. It was all too much for some of the home supporters as the goal triggered a small pitch invasion. Comically, one Hearts fan, in his attempts to get to the jubilant Riodan managed somehow to punch himself inthe face and was led off with a ‘sair yin’! (see video)

What is really remarkable about this famous victor is not that it means Hibs are unbeaten against Hearts this season but that Hibernian had a full ten first team players absent through injury. In effect, Hibs visited Tynecastle with their ‘B’ team and still ran out winners!

Glory Glory To The Hibees!

  1. Haaaa haaaaa!!! That was a real beauty – beat the Yams on their own midden and make them and their fans look like complete muppets into the bargain. Only a damn shame that the Arabs couldny beat the Sheep and move above Hertz in the table. Still, they’ll likely do that when they meet soon.

  2. You couldn’t have written a better script, Fraser. The fact that it was a penalty too seems to rub in it even more! I don’t remember such a post-derby afterglow in a long time! What a bunch of clowns they are.
