On this day in 1994, Hibernian defeated their city rivals Heart of Midlothian by one goal to nil in front of nearly 14,000 fans at Tynecastle.

This was Hibs’ first derby win after 22 games, a run that stretched for more than five and a half years. Third game of the new Scottish Football League Premier Division, Hibs came into this game at the back of an impressive start which included a 5-0 drubbing of Dundee United.

The 2013/2014 season in Scotland was not only the first season of the re-named SPFL but it also employed a play-off system, in which 3rd and 4th place in the second-tier Championship play each other over two legs. This year was Falkirk and Queen Of The South, and whoever won would progress on to play the team that finished 2nd.

"So, that's the last of them."

My dad probably wasn't the only Hibs fan of a certain age to say something like that when he heard the news of Lawrie Reilly's death.

"Them" are the Famous Five, for some generations of Hibs fans the quintet that will forever be the best of us.

Hibs' Famous Five (from left-right: Gordon Smith, Bobby Johnstone, Lawrie Reilly, Eddie Turnbull, Willie Ormond)

Before tiki-taka, before totaal voetbal, before push 'n' run, before catenaccio, before joga bonito, there was the Hibernian Famous Five.

Gordon Smith, Bobby Johnstone, Lawrie Reilly, Eddie Turnbull and Willie Ormond rose to prominence as a five-manforward line during Hibs' post-war glory years in the 1950s, when the Edinburgh club were the main challengers to Glasgow Rangers.

Hibernian sack stadium announcer for playing Beatles song at half time

Playing a record by the most successful pop act of all time is rarely cause for dismissal for a DJ, but it has proven to be the undoing of the announcer at Hibernian's Easter Road stadium.

During half time of Sunday's 2-1 victory over Dundee, Hibs announcer Willie Docherty spun 'Taxman', the opening track from The Beatles' rather splendid Revolver album (listen to it after the jump).

Table-toppers Hibernian have sacked their stadium announcer after he played 'Taxman' by the Beatles as a jibe at local rivals Hearts during the half-time interval at Hibs' Scottish Premier League tie against Dundee United on Sunday.

A Hibs spokesman said: "The stadium announcer's contract has been terminated following a breach of conduct.

The Hibernian-Hearts derby on the very first dayof 1940 was truly one for the ages.

The finished 6-5 in Hearts favour and was chock full of near misses, blood-bubbling tackles and fantastic acrobatic saves. There was only one problem nobody saw any of it.

Indeed, most of the14,000 fans crammed inside Easter Road missed large swathes of the action as the stadium was engulfed in a dense fog that shrouded the pitch entirely.

If the people of Scotland still believe in Scottish football as their national sport then it is a measure of a national trait of defiance. News headlines, front page and back, might still be generated by the sport but too often recently it has been for bad news rather than for outstanding match results.

SPL: Breaking bad?

The SPL's winter leave of absence seems to have taken a few people by surprise.

It is only a fortnight though and we're not supposed to have a winter break as such, so they've maybe been trying to keep it quiet.

There also seems a reasonable chance that the holiday will land plum in the middle of the most clement stretch of winter weather.

A strange Tuesday for Hibs. With their city rivals toiling under the threat of financial calamity, it was Hibs who ended the day with a dismissed employee and something of a PR storm.

At half time in Sunday's game against Dundee United the tannoy at Easter Road blasted out a few lines of George Harrison's Taxman.

Do Hibs feel the hand of Scottish Cup history on their shoulder? Or does it have them by the throat, threatening to throttle them once again?

They head to Hampden as favourites to beat Falkirk in the semi final - 1.6 to win at Unibet to Falkirk's 5.5 - but demons lurk in every corner.

Fifth in the league, a point better off after 26 games of this season than they were after the SPL had run it's course last season.

Hibs fans, punch drunk from their annus horribilis, heard promises in the summer of a rebuilt side capable of making progress.

A top six berth after two-thirds of the season does indeed point to progress.
