Hibs 2-0 Falkirk

Hibs warmed up for the CIS League cup final with a comfortable two nil victory over Falkirk.
Two goals from our Morrocan striker 'Benji' secured the three points that keep our faint hopes of a UEFA cup spot alive.
Hibs created all the early running and should have scored two or three goals without reply in the first half. A mixture of good defending and poor finishing meant the teams went in at halftime all square. It may have been all square in terms of goals (or lack of them) but in 'men on the park' Hibs had the advantage as Falkirks Holden was red carded.
Two goals early in the second half killed the game off as a contest, this at least gave Hibs an easier run out in preparation for the cup final this Sunday.
So it is in anticipation that all Hibs fans look towards Sunday, but before that big day the Edinburgh branch of the Kankas have the opportunity to see Sir Eski Kanka show off his refereeing skills.
Sir Eski has offered to referee Mini Hibbee Kankas school match on Saturday. He sounds a bit eager to brandish the red card in my opinion but we will see if he needs it.
I don't now if school children these days show the same respect that Sir Eski would have witnessed in the 1920's but I will have them on their best behaviour.
Some interesting stories and pictures to follow.

Hibbee Kanka


  1. Eski Kanka is poised like a coiled spring for The Big 'Un on Saturday.

    2 whistles, stop watch, BLACK book for taking names, ANKARAGUCU Track Suit (can't fit into my old Ref's kit !!), yellow card and.... most important of all.... RED CARD !!!

    Just pray that I get the opportunity of using it and sending some of those nasty little Edinburgh boys for an early bath ... heh heh heh !!!

  2. I predict riots. Don't forget the tear gas Hibee Kanka

  3. Sir Eski had the little terrors of Oxgangs primary school eating out of his hand. A experienced show of refereeing made for a very enjoyable game. Oxgangs won 4-2 with Mini Hibbee Kanka scoring a peach of the underside of the bar.
