Forget “Hibs’d it”. The term, Dundee United is synonymous with idiocy in Nigeria and has been for decades! A true, but fascinating story in today’s Guardian.

Strange that they would publish that story in today's paper, it was in the Peebles News years ago.

I had to check the calendar as it sounded like an April Fool story. First time I’ve read this but you are right, I just googled this and the Guardian also ran the same story a few years ago. Must have been a slow news day yesterday.

Wish I'd known this when I lived there! Certainly a few Nigerians now know what a Hibs is!
