Edinburgh Derby – winding up the Jambos

October 16th, 2008 3 Comments »

There was a request for these pics on Hibees Bounce today. Happy to help out a fellow Hibby ;-)

A week later would have been the 6 year anniversary of the biggest Edinburgh derby victory since we humped them 0-7 in 1973.  The photos were taken on the morning of derby day. Some scallywags had plastered Jambo baiting slogans all over Crawford Bridge at the end of Bothwell Street awaiting the arrival of the mini-huns.

Here are a few images I had on my hard drive from years ago, I’ll post more in the coming days and weeks. First up, Brazil legend Socrates with an Albert Kidd t-shirt.

I might post the large images for the subbuteo pics later if anyone requests them. Feel free to hotlink to these as avatars:

As a wee bonus, I also found an MP3 entitled “albert kidd”. I can only presume it’s the commentary from 1986 when he denied Hearts the league but my sound card is having issues so I can’t check. I’ve added it to the MP3s page. If anyone has anything else good for the page, please comment on this page.
