64 years ago. Here is a programme for an exhibition match played between the British Army and the French Army back in the days of National Service 

 

Jimmy Armfield + 3 Busby Babes (including Duncan Edwards)  + one Hearts man who had made a significant contribution to the club's history the previous Saturday

 

 

 

Who was the Hearts man

What had he done the Saturday before?

Something I can never ever begin to understand. One classic example of late is one lad who I remember well from Braga and a few other European trips around that time, he was always decked out in full regalia and well known for his Hearts allegiances but somehow ended up being a Hibs Casual 🤣 and an Irish Republican sympathiser 🤣 word got back to me a few years later that he ended up getting his arse served to him on a plate from the Hearts Casuals 🤣 whilst they were knocking ten bells out of Hibs in a lane near Rose Street.

 

Imbecile !

Yes, that's him, I knew him from attending matches, I remember one game against Hibs, I was approaching the Tynie Arms with my boy just as the Hibs Casuals police escort was arriving, I was astounded to see him in amongst the rabble giving it laldy (singing they hate Jam Tarts and Dundee) I was absolutely gobsmacked,with that the Hearts casuals ran at them and there was a brief scuffle nevertheless from being a Hearts fan to that I would certainly never ever give him the time of day again.

Ah, right, just over-exposed in that 100+ year old picture, plus the terracing obscures the ground floor in the newer one :)

 

Smashing, thanks Danny 👍

Neither did Robbo.  Could be wrong, but I thought they were both recovering from knocks and Doddie picked Pettigrew & O'Connor  for the LC midweek game to give them a few days more to get ready. Wise decision.  ☺️

A week after the famous Hearts 3 Hibs 2.

 

Hearts 2-0 at half time, 3-0 shortly after and Rangers' consolation goal was an afterthought.

 

Dundee United 5 Hibs 0 over the tannoy, then finding out later from a Hibby schoolmate that the reserve game at ER had finished Hibs 3 Dundee United 6.

 

Good day.

 

Great times.

"The Sting". Doddie left out Robbo, Bone and Kidd . Rangers won the league cup game easily and Davie Cooper was superb with the media also going well over the top about it - I remember a comment in the R*cord "How many will the mighty Rangers score on Saturday?"

 

Davie Cooper disappeared into Zico's back pocket and Robbo/Jimmy roughed up their defence. As mentioned, we were three up before they got a late consolation. Zico only ever had one bad game against Cooper and he must have been ill that day. Cooper actually had more bookings fouling Kidd than Walter got fouling him - quite miraculous from Scottish referees!
