    The marketing will certainly have helped. I'm a bit bias here, I work in a marketing department myself, but I've been really impressed with the improvement in fan communication from Hibs recently. The investment in video has been a masterstroke. The content of the video has been great too: Bold images of the stadium, Leith, footage of the players hard at work... all stuff you want to see as a supporter (and it follows you around social media too meaning you'll probably watch it more than once). Compare that to previous years where you would get an easily binned flyer with a statement from Rod full of promises of jam tomorrow. Its got to have had an effect.
    I agree, the marketing has been much improved and has undoubtedly helped. However, there is a massive cup-shaped elephant in the room ;-)

    I seen one of my best mates today for the first time in a long time. A gunt. From Currie. My good pal Jim.

    2 of his cousins, Celtc fans are talking about how shocking Scottish fitba is because of that pen today...I know he hates Celtc with a passion...but this was the moment to decry how brutal and $#@!e Scottish fitba is....and they're agreeing with him. I was impressed with his subterfuge. He had them in his hand so much that he even used his own team against Killie on Fri as a yardstick of how $#@!e it all is.

    I've seen this move before...So have youz...

    Proceeded to tell him (and them) that the last few years has been the best ever not just for Hibs but Scottish fitba as a whole! Not only have we won the Cup but the league as well. It's been like a rollercoaster that I will never got off. We have done all this within our means and cant remember the last time they beat us. We have and have had better Celtc players playing for the Hibs than they ever had for Celtc....that was for the Celtc cousins who are me pals as well...and we cant wait to spank them every derby from now on....HELL YES! Scottish fitba is in a fine state and can only get better cos we are around. And we will batter them if they try to get on the pitch!


    By this time his Celtc cousins are on my side noo...and slating him about how $#@!e Hertz are....I laughed and said I can't wait to beat the Huns in the Final again. Up Ye's!
    Thoroughly enjoyed that wee read given that I no exactly who you spent the day in boozer with mate 😂

    It's also worth noting, that this is a trend-bucker. It's often thought that demotion, and thus a team that wins more often, gets better crowds; it's not true. Typically, playing in a league that isn't top-tier (as far as Scotland is concerned, anyway) sees crowds go down. So this is a record we've also managed to toss aside this year.

    Fair play, everyone. Fair play.

    I suspect we have the biggest home crowd outside Glasgow; you can add 1000 to that minimum to gauge a top flight gate

    I believe Hibs are third - there's still over 16,000 on average through the turnstiles at Tynecastle.

    Traditionally, however, Hibs do travel better than Hearts.

    No. We now do what all other clubs do and that's all seats sold.

    It's all to do with sponsors liking big numbers. I think we can attribute this change of tack to the recent work of Greig Mailer. I don't mind if we do or we don't.

    All I know is that it sure as hell beats the $#@! out of how it felt to hear the guntos always bleating on about empty seats in the early days after we had had the temerity to build the new east stand.

    Of course with their own new stand project I wish them nothing but the best woodworm sheer random bad luck can supply

    I meant home fans, we can add at least a 1000 to our figure when comparing overall gate to hearts, given impact of away fans in the two divisions
