When I opened up the treasure chest to extract the next bundle of cuttings I was surprised and delighted to see that I had retained a bulging portfolio of newsprint from both this and the following season. And at the same time I thought, “Bugger me, I’m going to spend the rest of my life scanning this pile!” A vision flashed before me of my corpulent figure slumped in a darkened computer room, surrounded by pizza boxes and cans of Red Bull like some hopelessly compulsive online gamer stewing in his own pish.
Since I am in fact a fully socialised mature adult with a beautiful and fulfilling life that I don’t want to forsake, I decided to adopt a different strategy for forthcoming hibLOG posts, loading them up one by one rather than releasing a whole season at once. You know, more or less like normal blogging.
Below, therefore, are just a couple of new posts to get the ball rolling, both from the close season. Match day reports will unfold over the coming weeks, detailing what proved to be a momentous season for Hibs with some very considerable highs and a welcome scarcity of lows.
