By Sandy Macnair

i guess the 1st noticeable query is - why the Nineteen Seventies? Why no longer the '50s of the well-known 5, or maybe the noughties? (By that i guess you suggest the noughties of the final century, in which Hibs really introduced domestic the Scottish Cup?) the reason being very simple - I grew to become a Hibs supporter ahead of the beginning of the last decade and used to be fortunate sufficient to develop up looking at the group we name Turnbull's Tornadoes in the course of my so much adolescence. the top of that decade appeared the most obvious position to finish, because it additionally introduced down the curtain at the Turnbull period and observed Hibs' ignominious slide into the 1st Division.

When i began penning this ebook I initially envisaged it as comprising my whole Hibs helping occupation as much as the current. yet that e-book has already been written, certainly taking within the earlier decade and much more along with! without doubt you all have Ted Brack's 'There Is A Bonny Fitba crew' in your bookshelves, certainly the final word own account of being a Hibs supporter. i couldn't have was hoping to enhance upon Ted's version. So i made a decision to come back at it from a marginally diversified perspective, interweaving my singular coming of age story during the Decade of undesirable flavor with my very own tackle Hibs' fortunes in the course of that intriguing rollercoaster time.

Therefore it is not only a soccer e-book and with a bit of luck a few of my foolhardy teenage reports within the Edinburgh of a now bygone age will resonate with these of you sufficiently old to were there and performed that too. I simply desire on your sakes you did not perform a little of it to relatively the level that I did. Do enjoy!
