I came a cropper after the Leeds Utd friendly in the early 90s. I'd travelled up from the South with some York City pals for a weekend. We got jumped not far from Tamsons after the game. I got a grudging apology when I finally got through to them that I was Hibs and these were my friends. I didn't come back to ER for quite a few years after that.
Sorry for you and your pals, as I said above I can only confirm what I have witnessed first hand.
THE mass brawl which erupted on the Royal Mile saw Hibs casuals ambush football hooligans linked to Rangers and Hearts, it was revealed today.www.scotsman.com
This was a well planned action ambushing Huns and Hertz scum after an Orange walk....what’s not to like
Even more pleasing is it was all their older lot that got blitzed by Hibs younger lot ?
