Hertz clearly not short of cash having just paid Neilson's contract to take him back to Tynecastle.

Makes you wonder if Neilson thinks Hearts rather than United will be in the Premier league next season.

That Falkirk game was the match where JP Javary (I think) dragged Owusu off the ground in a rage when he was rolling about injured late in the game.

That game at Brockville :(

We hadn't been to a game in years, as my Dad was playing amateurs on a Saturday but we ended going at the last minute. I remember the atmosphere was immense that day, I absolutely loved that stadium and we always seemed to take a good support through. 

Inflatable seats were a good laugh though.

Yeah it was. Remember it well!

My recollection of that game was of Agathe? getting the ball in the opening minute and dropping a shoulder to go around his man. The Falkirk defender read it and dispossessed him, Agathe shrugged his shoulders and promptly gave up, we'd have been as well subbing him right then, he clearly knew he was off (to Hibs) and did very little (by his standards) all game.

 

I'd forgotten about Tall Pish's horror tackle until I saw it again, what a shocker!

My redeeming memory of Brockville was seeing a dead bird on the terrace as I ducked under one of the leaning bars, losing my footing and doing that horrible, uncontrolled panic run until I crashed into the back of some poor felly. 

Poor boy must have thought he was getting jumped.

Was there a game at brockville in the mid/late-nineties where someone (Sinky maybe?) caught the ball on the goal line and got sent off?
Or did I make that up?

Your footwork always has been suspect, bit like your tea pouring skills! ;)

Sinky? Sent off? 

Wash your mouth out. 😉

You're actually almost right - it was September 2000 and we lost 1-2.

Falkirk's first goal was from the penalty spot after a hand ball on the line. 

The guilty player - none other than Ray the snake.

Several times now I've seen us beating Inverness. Maybe the late 90s weren't so bad after all.

They guy that does the retro shirts (dunnottar) is going to be doing this very soon. Hopefully along with the white away one from that season. I'd certainly buy it.

He’s pretty thick if he does, unless he believes a real court is going to have a say in football promotions and relegations.

On twitter earlier I was thinking who would be the best ever 'one club player' for us (e.g. McNeil at Celtic). I'm struggling to think who ours could be...currently its limited to Ross Matthew's for drinking tears and dropkicking Pars.
