Greetings Kankas and Kankies from the Capital City of Scotland.
What a welcome !!!
HIBERNIAN 5 Hamilton 1
Is this a prelude to what is going to happen tomorrow in Ankara me wonders ?? Will Phillie or Battle Damaged give us another similar upbeat report ? Will the Ankaragucu fans fall in love with Lemerre ? Will Bebbe and Vassell start doing what they are paid to do, ie, score goals ? Enuff said about Ankaragucu ??
Meanwhile, back in Edinburgh, Hibs found their real form in recognition of Eski's return to his homeland, and it didn't take long.
Nish opened the scoring after 10 minutes and the goal rush followed from great strikes from 'man of the match' Stokes (a class act if there ever was one) and fellow striker Riordan with two apiece.
I haven't seen Hibs play like this since they won the Scottish League Cup in 2007 and it was only when they were 5-0 up that the foot came off the pedal that they allowed the bemused Hammies a consolation goal.
I won't bore you with the quality of the goals, better to tell you that Eski and Hibbie Kanka Athole started their pre-match celebrations in The Conan Doyle and post-match celebrations in Middletons, The Gilford and one of Brat Kankies's Rock Bar's, the name of which escapes me, and by that time, was not important !!!
How I am able to make this post with the time approaching midnight is one of God's miracles, but ......the upside is that it is short !!
Good luck (and success) to Ankaragucu and Gencler tomorrow.
All the best from still up in the clouds ...... Eski Kanka Jim
