  1. Aberdeen vs Hibs

    Whatever happened to Stevie May? Saw second half on a stream and highlights of goal. Kamberi and Porteous had a mare. Others were just anonymous though Hibs had more fight in the last 45.
  2. The Statement Thread

    Agree in part though some people obvs can't control themselves when a rival manager, say Lennon, cups his ears at them after receiving torrents of abuse. Are the coin-throwers really that thin-skinned? As to Celtic - yes and no. AFAIK, it was founded by an Irish clergyman for the poor of Glasgow and most of their first team were Scottish. I am struggling to think of a justification for a UJ at Tynecastle though, outside of a war-dead commemoration or some kind of, unlikely, event involving a branch of the UK state. There is a reason why Hearts have a Saltire in the crest and why we have a Scottish FA and not a British one. Hearts/ Gorgie is a community and will therefore have many different political opinions - maybe at a football game is one place where we can put them aside?
  3. The Statement Thread

    The flag thing is about context. The UJ or Tricolour aren't themselves sectarian but can/ and are used as such - purely for idiotic reasons. Why celebrate your flag/ culture if all you can do with it is incite/ goad other people? As to poppy, it has a clear significance for Hearts and the other teams that contributed to McCrae's Battalion. Is it political? Yes but for the most part it isn't used at football games to cause havoc. If it becomes that then I'm sure it will be included in this type of discussion.
  4. The Statement Thread

    Great statement by Budge and good to see it tackles the issues of songs and flags. Union flag has no place at Tynecastle unless part of some external event such as war-dead commemoration though many regiments fly the Saltire too. As much as I don't like it, it itself isn't sectarian. However it is obviously used by bigots to wind-up opposing fans and shouldn't be tolerated. Who needs any flag other than a club one at a game? And I include the Saltire and Tricolour. Have no problems grassing up the filth we see too often in our support - in recent weeks they've bottled an old woman in our own support, spat on kids and sang sectarian songs. Get them tae fck.

    Trump meltdown at press conference.
  7. Brexit slowly becoming a Farce.

    Britain's place in the world... https://www.irishtimes.com/opinion/brexit-is-teaching-britain-its-true-place-in-the-world-1.3688454
  8. When will indyref2 happen?

    Not sure how it can be refused. WM was fine with them voting in the first Indyref. Shows the balance of power though. EU didn't dictate terms of Brexit ref but we're expected to brown nose Westminster to get democracy. Know your place Scotchland.
  9. When will indyref2 happen?

    Polls like the above don't include EU voters or 15 - 17 yos who'll have a vote when the time comes. Don't you agree that EU residents are likely to vote, massively, in favour of I-Scot in the EU and that young voters tend to favour Indy?
  10. When will indyref2 happen?

    NATION Norway now on You Tube.
  11. When will indyref2 happen?

    Sorry to piss on your parade... or actually I'm cock a hoop. Survation back up the SNP tweets: Majority for Indy. It's moving our way.
  12. General Politics Thread

    Poppies... Some good points being made as to why we put so much effort into commemorating the dead (a good thing mostly) but neglect the living veterans? Why can't the UK govt look after the soldiers it sent into various wars? And this in the Mirror: https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/least-13000-hero-soldiers-left-11847000
  13. Hearts vs Hibs

    Back to the politics... interesting piece by a NI Proddie on his dying statelet. The after-school club at Hearts with their 'just a wind-up' Union Jacks and dodgy songs should read it. Or, if they like NI so much, go and live there. I met a few 'Prods' who hate the place due to all this kind of bullshoight - from hate and violence to Old Testament religion in daily politics... They really want that here? https://www.nytimes.com/2018/11/02/opinion/northern-ireland-brexit-unionism.html
  14. Hearts vs Hibs

    Agree. He's had loads of crap to put up with from knuckledragging filth. He needs to curb his antics and temper on the touchline though. Good to see the joint statement though. It'll wind up the nazis if nowt else. Now get them tae fck out of our clubs.
  15. Hearts vs Hibs

    Against our reserves too.
