After their humiliating trouncing in the Programme of the Year Awards, Hearts revamped their publication for the 87-88 season with a full colour cover. Still the same picture every week mind, and inside was just the same drab, lifeless, uninspired stuff, riddled with typos.
Any great excitement the game may have possessed has failed to leave any imprint on my memory. It would appear that Andy Goram performed heroics to keep Hearts out, however, if the Scotsman’s picture and caption is anything to go by.
Hibs lined up: Goram, Hunter, Sneddon, May, Rae, Mitchell, Kane, Orr, McCluskey, Collins and Watson, with McBride and McIntyre on the bench.
The Hearts side, for those of you who are interested, was: Smith, Hugh ‘neep-heid’ Burns, Roger Whittaker, Mike ‘the most expensive mince ever bought’ Galloway, Dave ‘Giraffe’ McPherson, Craig Levein, John Colquhoun, Kenny Black, lovely Wayne Foster, Gary ‘my son’s a Hibby’ Mackay, and John ‘I should have been a Hibby’ Robertson, with those nice chaps Neil Berry and Walter ‘Zico’ (haaaa haaaaaaa) Kidd on the bench.
