Abomination of a top, they really are a disgrace with no shame. I'd love for them to explain how it's their city and even better, why they took the photo next to the Heart of Midlothian?

Is this 'Hibernian Edinburgh' badge new?

 

The spaghetti covered top is one thing, but though it may well have been discussed at great length before, can I ask if Hibs have changed their name from 'Hibernian FC' to 'Hibernian Edinburgh'? I seem to remember, pre internet days, an argument about whether or not they were 'Edinburgh Hibernian FC' or just 'Hibernian FC' and it being made clear (by the club) they'd always been plain 'Hibernian FC', but now it would appear they are, either, 'Hibernian Edinburgh' or, just as TRFC felt the need to add 1872 to the back their tops to lie about their heritage, they, for some reason, feel the need to emphasise that they are an Edinburgh club.

 

Anyone know why, and when, they added the name of our city to their badge?

 

PS Not suggesting it's wrong of them to do this, just find it a bit odd.

What a bizarre thing to do with a football strip. 😬


Thinks it’s a reference to their “we own this city” shite! 😂

Also.....

 

Now that I think about it. A map for a strip is actually quite apt for them.

They both fold easily.

 

 

(I'll space my map jokes out for a day or two.......)

Probably because they don't know Edinburgh all that well.

How apt, Hibs a bit down from Heart of Midlothian.

Its Jamie Murphy lol. They must have signed him permanently, because he was only on loan from Rangers last season. Unless they've ****ed that up as well. 

 

 

👍

 

Just noticed that Lochend is near his armpits.

 

How appropriate.

In recent years they really do seem to have been pushing the Edinburgh identity thing.  
 

Halfwits. 

 

Some of the best laughs on dotnut can be found on their occasional identity threads. 

 

Lots of Irish/Scottish bickering and, ultimately, they're still none the wiser.

 

What a ludicrous, mixed up, derby rival gift of wee club they are.

Is that not the point?  They're taking over the City but having their image blocking out the Heart of Midlothian so inferring they have taken over?

Trying to convince myself it’s a photoshop job?  Please don’t let it be though. :rofl:

If I was to ever win the Euro Millions  I am going to sponsor them and make them wear Hibsed-it

If Easter Road is covered by the badge, I think that your thinking gives them to much credit

They could maybe lay claim to Edinburgh if they’d rubber stamped themselves over a period of time as “the best of the rest” and were 3rd quite a few times, as well as dominating the derby.  
 

They’ve did neither. They’ve been 3rd 3 times in 20 years.  Look at their league record since 2010.  Plagued with relegation battles and 3 Seasons in the Championship.

 

Only they’d have the brass neck to shout about “owning the city” while having a shite record. :rofl:

This is our city is up there with our Only Hearts . Completely hollow message with nothing to justify them.

If our derby record was down 144-86, and we had been beaten more times at Tynecastle than we had won, and the last 2 occasions we played our rivals we bottled it at Hampden (AGAIN) and got pumped at home (AGAIN), the last thing I would be thinking was "this is our city". 

 

Especially when their name literally translates to Ireland, and play their home games in Leith.

 

Has a club ever got it so wrong?

The mucky finger prints of Peruvian Ron all over it. Probably believes that if they make such claims, then people will be drawn to them.

 

There's no possible metric by which Hibs can consider Edinburgh their city.

It might be for recognition out-with our own country (just a guess)?

 

Not many folk will ask, but it gives a location when someone does ask ... Who da feck are Hibernian FC?

 

Of course, we've been asking that for years! (centuries!).

Yh I thought the idea kinda ok but execution is bollox , would be a decent top for Hibs without it. Tbf whatever top they come out with its for us to wipe our feet on as we put them to the sword again and again and again , year after year , decade after decade
