I remember painting hearts colours onto hard hats, just so you could stand in the shed without worrying about darts and golf balls 

ha, yeah I remember those - there were a quite a few of 'builders white hats' with the crest in the shed late '70's and early eighties

Always at the corner of the shed, seemed to be where all the crazy ones were.

Under the Refreshments stall was pretty bad too.

Afternoon- I am new on here so i can't create a post myself but this topic may be relevant enough to ask

 

About Hearts support- I read a lot that you have the best support in Scotland and i have seen the video's ect to back it up

 

But i wonder where does the support come from? because from what i understand and read about Edinburgh is that it is very Affluent and also the kind of city that is so multi national that you struggle to find many people who are actually Born and bred Edinbronian (is that a word)

 

so it's quite an anomaly it seems to have such a loyal passionate fanbase

 

Anyone care to enlighten me?

 

Thanks

Tell me Dirk, from where do you hail?

Bristol England

 

I'm sorry for being nosey but i am interested in fan bases

 

I really like weird ones that don't make sense like say Burnley where they have only 80000 people but 20 odd thousand season ticket holders

 

But Middle Class areas like say Fulham while they might get numbers it's not what you would call a hardcore support

Well, believe me, Dirk, Edinburgh fans come from all social classes. The lads from Niddrie, Drylaw and Muirhouse would disagree with the "Affluent" classification.

I am not making a judgement i am only going by what i have read

 

And it does make sense given that Edinburgh is one of Europe's most grand city's looks wise the elite schools and such

 

I don't doubt there are rough pockets but generally speaking it is usually hard up working class scoundrels who are known for having a boisterous Fan base

Do you think i am on a wind up?

 

Edinburgh is posh is it not? widely regarded so in fact

 

All i am saying is it's rather impressive that such a place produces such a support, its rare

Hearts support comes from as you say "affluent" Edinburgh but also the mining communities of Lothian and Fife.

Yep, farguar and i were just promulgating over the very same point. Do we get smashed in the Gunner or carry on our travels into the back waters  of the area of the Norhet. Perchance there we could meet the leser backed drunken pisedoothisheedoannarcotics type local before bending a sharp right into Cramond. 

Away and write yer thesis somewhere else. We've got life to deal with.

yeah, was there too and have watched 'the highlights' a few times on you tube since. Just looked at the footage again on here for the first time in years and never noticed the 'foul'.  Eh what - the foul in the first 20 seconds - what an absolutely bleedin' shocking decision - aaaargh!

Why are you trying to pretend that you are just an average town?

Are you embarrassed that you have it better than everybody else and playing it down

Edinburgh is nicer than Glasgow. I don’t think that point ever needs to be made but I’ve no idea what you’re banging on about. You’re genuinely surprised that people support hearts because Edinburgh’s a nice place?

Yeah kind of

Usually the big loud fanatical support bases of the world are poor working class cities

Naples, Buenos Aries, Newcastle, Liverpool, Seville, Marseille

 

I am not saying Hearts are in their league but it did strike me as a bit unusual that's all

 

Like i said i'm just curious i am not trying to wind people up i know people get touchy over their Cities but it's just and honest question from an observation

Don’t think we are trying to pretend anything. Like many cities we have affluent areas and not so affluent ones . What we do have that no one else has , is Heart of Midlothian football club , a club with a history like no other, the best supporters in the land . please don’t take offence by my reply 

ALWAYS HEARTS ONLY HEARTS

Edinburgh is like a lot of other cities. With a population of 500,000 plus lots of outlying regions before you reach another city, the fan base of hearts is from a vast and very diverse group of people. London is a very rich city but it doesn’t mean Chelsea struggle for fans.

See this is why i ask these random things, they are good

 

Next time i am out and about and someone say's to me 'Ah Edinburgh,Full of pretentious rich *****' 

 

I can say no they aren't actually 

 

And it's purely because of the Football that singled them out for me to want to even ask the question

I’ve mentioned this before but it still riles me to this day, therefore you are getting this reminder of the scum , imagine the scene ,thin blue line between us and the shist then known as rangers   As a 15 year old , wearing my scarf covered with every badge in our history that was possible to have ,the SHED,was our haven, standing ,chanting and very very proud ,one of these little beauties thought it was time to see what between the nice young policemen’s feet, the copper nearest actually saw this and nodded for me to go pick it up , not such a good idea in hindsight, the boots came flying through the coppers legs , blood everywhere, the first tooth I lost in anger👍👍👍👍👍     🤮

never lost the love for the SHED ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️.    ❤️

I remember Hearts fans scrapping with each other, mainly Livi v Saville Travel v The Shed. The support was very territorial in the first division days and wee flare ups were common.

You’re welcome dirk. Nobody watches Bloomberg anymore, information and insights into the financial markets, investing and macro-economics as well as detailed company information are freely available online 24/7. I suspect you have that beard and it’s a struggle for you each day whether to reach for the beard cream or the jumbo pack of paracetamol when you open your bathroom cabinet.

You’ll take it as a yes to a question that asked for a number as an answer? Are you on the internet because everyone in real life finds you awful company or is it because you mistakenly think you’re smart enough to troll? Hint - don’t answer yes Because it’s not a yes/no question.

That was a fashion among my mates, around 1969. There was a huge Wimpey site in Penicuik and we went foraging for hard hats when it was closed. My mate Dave's dad was ace at painting them. All the younger guys on our bus had them.
