Where Do You Live
|EDINBURGH (CLOSE TO THE HALLOWED TURF)|
|ROBERTSON / FOSTER|
|All Hearts fans remember this for one thing and
one thing alone FOZZY putting the ball through Leightons legs with 5
minutes to go.
What made it memorable was that it was truely against the run of play.
After Robbo scored early we were hardly in the game but like many games during the 21 games in a row paticularly at Easter Road we had the luck of the devil.
It was live on the telly and I watched with my cousin in the auld inn in D Mains. After Fozzy scored and half the pub went seriously mental the boxing started as the Hibbies couldnt take it.
I stayed out of it and managed to pull my younger cousin out of a difficult situation. The Monday morning Scotsman had a suberb picture of of the ball going through Leightons legs and a huge grin on Fozzys face. It was cut out / photocopied and faxed to every Hibbie I knew with the comment - what happened next ??
Its good to thump your bitter rivals but its even better to 'steal' a victory off them - thats a real downer.
