    1993 we won the league that day I think? Players were running about with a life size cut out of Super.

    2005 what a day that was.

    1985 nine man rangers came back to get a 1-1 draw and we could have won it as a very young Iain Durrant came on as a sub and was within inches of scoring near the end.one of the best chants that night "the queen said no tae mass" as the queen had ordered princess Diana not attend mass when she was in Rome.another bonus the a bit of Tim on Tim battling ended up with the police horses charging the tims to disperse them.

    1976- we scored before a lot of the crowd got in,me included. Gates came down at hearts end where we ended up big Gers support all around the ground.
    Sure from memory our subs were Jardine and Parlane.Bobby McKean had a very good game iirc.

    1985 Another penalty for us thanks to the big brainless lump Roy Aitken. My main memory of that night, apart from us having 2 sent off, was a very impressive midfield display by a very young Ian Durrant.

    1976: There is a photograph kicking about of myself and my bro' coming in from Mount Florida, resplendent in platform shoes and bell-bottoms. I must try and find it again.

    Cracking game for the treble! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qjr7EnDL5sY

    2005: Crucial win in the title race at a venue we usually struggled at. Got a soaking that day but it was worth it.

    76, there was a pay at the gate due to Hearts not selling many tickets. I went through with my Dad and Hearts supporting uncle and cousin.
