"We took the Beach End."

 

Wasn't much fun when they set the alsatians on the hill though.

 

My one was a replay in the cup mid 80's, when they closed the gates to us and started putting A/Deen in. Utter, utter carnage.

 

We got beat as well.

I worked a nightshift after being at that match! Will never forget the atmosphere when JC was put clean through and stuck the ball past Leighton, right in the Hearts end! Magic memories! Unfortunately, there was a TV strike of some sort at the time, and the game wasn't recorded. Blah!

Aye,I was at that game. Big Roddie MacDonald got sent off if memory serves me right. Eric Black scored. I remember getting to the top of that hill, and the queue was huge. I was sure I wasn't going to get in. It was a disgrace that they let home fans in that end. There must have been a ton of jambos locked out.

21st October 1978. Derek O'Conner scored on his Hearts debut! Dennis McQuade(did he ever score simple goals?LOL!) scored from about forty yards in the second half, after Joe Harper had equalised from the spot! One of the bright spots from that season.

The O'Connor / McQuade game, 2-1, October 1978. One of my favourite ever games.

My most vivid memory was a game back in the 80s when we were 2-0 down at half-time and came back to draw 2-2. I think Robbo scored them both and then missed a great chance for his hat-trick. The real reason it sticks in my mind though is that I fancied it to be a 2-2 draw and put a couple of quid on. Being pretty impoverished at the time, I struggled to know whether to be pleased or annoyed when Robbo had his miss. Eventually, I realised that the miss was worse.

 

I rarely bet on games involving Hearts and since that day have only ever backed us to win.

Having been one of the hardy souls who travelled up to the league cup quarter final there 4 or 5 years ago, it was nice to come away with a 1-0 win.

 

The weather was awful, we even thought the game would be off but travelled anyway cos we just didnt care. We stopped at Mcdermaid Park on the way up for lunch too which was good, and then went into the beach end bar which is now home supporters only, the colours were hidden and the phones on silent!

I was only 10 and I seem to remember being high up in a stand that had Aberdeen supporters somewhere in it and when we left the ground there were Aberdeen fans congratulating us and wishing us luck for the championship. The casuals obviously didnae look near a 10 year old!

 

The worst was a 4-0 defeat shortly after a European tie. I remember Jeremy Goss was playing although I've tried to forget.

I mind just Rixes first game up there, that was some day. Some nutter in the Hearts crowd brought out a Union Jack and the whole Beach End and the segregated part next to the away end went ballistic.

It was absolutley baltic that day! I think I remember them saying it was the coldest day of the year! The playing surface was rock hard too! :eek:

That celebratory dance is up there with Michael Jackson's MoonWalk

 

I saw Jimmy in his black cab yesterday and thought he was a good player

 

however with Levein and MacPherson at the club he never got a great run

 

in the team at the time , how we could do with these players mentioned

 

nowadays , Crabbe was also a good player who left the club too soon .

Can sort of remember my first trip there in the early 90's, think it was 1-0 and hearts were wearing a striking white and maroon pinstripe number if I remember right. I think Scott Leitch (of all people) was our scorer, it's all very hazy now but I enjoyed that season even though we were rank.

 

Pittodrie stank then and it still stinks today!

2-1 win in 2000 when Darren Jackson scored the winner :thumb:

 

Worst game was when we lost 3-1 there in midweek, I think that was in 2000 too, at the time they were bottom of the SPL :eek:

Late sixties when Donald Ford completed a hat-trick as we came back from 2-1 down (with ten men after Townsend was sent off) to score two goals in the last five mins.

I think also Aberdeen were the only unbeaten team in Britain up to that point.

4-1 in 1997 was also a great day.

The one that I'll always remember was a league game on a Tuesday night in January 2003. The weather was dreadful - rain, sleet, snow, very windy - in fact during the first half it looked like the game would not last the distance but it went all the way and Gary Wales scored a stoppage time winner (only goal of the game). There were about 500 of us Jambos there that night and when that goal went in the Hearts section went crazy.

Was at the O'Connor / McQuade game and watching the video now always laugh when the commentator says ' a Dennis McQuade special ' . YES he did it every week !!! Can't honestly rememeber him scoring apart from that.

My favourite Pittodrie match was May 1998.

 

We drew 2-2 but the biggest cheer of the day was when Dundee Utd scored to send the Hobos down.

 

 

Wonderful.

He scored a cracker against the reptiles IIRC. Dennis perfected the art of missing the easy chances and then scoring what seemed impossible goals.

I remember just before he scored I turned to a mate (who hadn't yet seen him play) to say how feckin useless he was. Perhaps I should have said that more often.

Only a Game

I remember a cup replay(I think it was) when Robbo scored a screamer of a free kick into the beach end. It made that fine rippling noise against the back of the net that you get when a ball has been struck really hard.

 

Robbo's greatest ever goal in my opinion and only about 1200 Hearts fans saw it because there was no TV coverage of the game.

One of my favourites too mate!;) Remember our song "Reekin' in Brechin" ??(Cannae mind the rest of the words).I've always liked my days out going up there especially if we could get the win.Our bus used to stop at the Brechin City Club before it shut down on the way up for a few refreshments.Never made the matches twice.Once when we won 3-2 and I was sitting blethering away to a Jambo who had recently lost his missus so we hit the doubles and the doubles hit us back big time!! Two of us were absolutely blitzed!!

The other was a Sunday which was the last game of that season and it kicked off at half 12 just when the boozers opened.Well a mate of mine on the bus and myself decided to sit in the boozer til half time 1-1 when we walked down to the ground and this guy coming out said it wasn't a great game and wasn't worth the hassle so we decided to head back to the boozer.

Well the goals were rattling in and we were shell shocked as Hearts went 4-1 up blaming each other for not going into the ground!! The final score was 5-2 and we both felt a tad guilty for going all the way up there and not going!!:confused::)

 

Oh and by the way the missus isn't speaking to me so that's why I'm blethering away a wee bit too much on here tonight!!:wacko:
