Will the torture end?


I’m pre-empting the events of Sunday.

I’m a horrible, disillusioned fan. Eventually eternal failure grinds you down.

For years and years and years me and my pals Will, and Nick (and John) went along to see the Hibees.

We won nowt.

League cup v Dunfermline.  v Kilmarnock.  Good days out; but whatever.

But the cup, THE CUP, eludes us.

It’s so humiliating.  It’s embarrassing.

Last year I could not bear to go there (Hampden) because defeat was virtually guaranteed.

This year we are seven, 7, to one (1) to win. To beat a poor team.  Albeit a team that is considered top 16 in Europe.

But, we have a chance…
