Since we were promoted,the team that has deserved to win the derby has generally won it.

Hearts have won 6 Hibs have won 6.We don't always blow it against them, not even close.

They've been utterly terrible for the past two years though

We should be sticking the boot into them

We don't

If they had our team but they played in maroon I reckon from the 16 they would have won at least 10

This game was our chance to finally put these *&*^ in their place and we failed. It’s games like this that hurts so much that we have been let down so badly.

All derbies are equally important.

All derbies are in important but when it comes to semi finals or even finals against your rivals they become Very Important, all you hear from they *&*^ is 5-1, because they know how much it hurt us watching that shite. Saturday was our chance to get some salvage back but the gutless *&*^ let us down again.

I'm pretty much over caring about derby stats. The damage was done in the 80's so no amount of winning is going to change the narrative around it. You can engage with the "big team", "natural order" bollocks if you want but you'll just end up frustrated.

Like the OP states, we have been fairly evenly matched since relegation and rebirth. I'll be concerned if we go into an 80's style slump again, but going forward I'm of the attitude that winning derbies will be sweet, losing them will sting for a bit, but beyond that its on to the next game. The history of the fixture is exactly that.

Also, I think us rising to the bait keeps this "big team", "wee team" "hibsing it" shite alive. Dundee have a similarly pish historical record in their derby, but nobody ever seems to mention it.

In my lifetime the draw is in front for league games with 59, 38 for us and 58 for them. They've won one more than us at ER with the damage being done at their dump. Cups games are 7-6 to them.

Spot on. Some folk carrying scars for far to long also.

So what about the past 50 derbies ?

Why 16? 6 Vs 6 is still pish considering the team we've had compared to theirs

Are you happy with that ?

I have attended the past 50 Derbies, won some, lost some and drawn some. Tell you what though, considering we are living during a deadly pandemic which has killed over 1 million people, I will personally be fucking delighted if I see the next game between us, win, loose or draw.

They want to win against us more than we do. That’s it in a nut shell. They had 3-4 bookings before we had one. We fouled them more during the game, but didn’t intimidate them one bit. Hanlon’s comments before the game were shocking. I like Paul, he’s a good player, just not a proper captain. I want to hear someone shouting, getting the players up and leading by example. We haven’t had that in fuck knows how long. It’s no coincidence when Cummings played we usually won. The boy had swagger and didn’t give a fuck.
