Any older Hibs fans remember this happening ?

On the Saturday 5th February 1977, Celtic defeated Hibs 4-2 at Parkhead. The very next day Sunday 6th February Hibs defeated Partick Thistle 3-0 at Easter Road in a Scottish Cup tie. I actually remember this and I also remember thinking at the time how ridiculous and unfair it was. I cannot remember any other time when Hibs have played two games in consecutive days. Any stattos out there come up with another occasion when this has happened ?

Can't be sure, but would imagine we've done Jan 1 & 2 in the past.

Partick were part time at the time too iirc - it was because of restrictions on floodlight games perhaps?

Yup.

It's on the FitbaStats website but there are no details regarding the circumstances. No reason given for playing on successive days.

But the same site records a 0-0 draw at Tynecastle on the 2nd of January 1967 and a 2-0 win over Dunfermline at ER the following day. And the following year we beat the Gunts 1-0 at ER on New Year's Day and drew 2-2 with Raith at Starks Park on the following day. That one I do remember; I was very disappointed that we didn't beat Raith.

Which confirms what weehibbydrew says - in those days it wasn't unusual to play two days running around New Year.

Useful site, that. http://www.fitbastats.com/hibs/index.php

I should have remembered but I was probably too engrossed in Never Mind the Bollocks to notice.

‘Never mind.’

These were the two words that seemed superfluous in the above.

Glad you found your way home Moaty. Unless you’re posting on your phone from a random roundabout.

I think Pat Stanton's testimonial v Celtic was played on a Sunday and the previous day Hibs had played Celtic in a league match at Easter Road.

Cannae get my heid round the present situation. I have attended most Hibs games in the 60's and 70's European and Cup, of which were mostly played on Wednesday's and some Thursdays . Apart from Finals. Jesus how things have changed.
As I have said before on this splendid site. I personally seen the Hibernians beat Real Madrid on the Wednesday and ram the Huns totally at Ibrox 2-4 on the Saturday a couple of days later. Happy days.

Actually it was a 1 all draw against Aberdeen at ER Willie. I was at both games, April 29th and 30th 1978.

Thank you for putting me right. I'm constantly finding out that things I'm absolutely certain I remember happening, actually didn't!
I’m the opposite.

I’m absolutely certain I can’t remember things that did happen.
Actually, I think I remember other things that I can’t now remember because Harlem’s post popping up just now distracted me.
