Good to see the display properly. Shocking the tv stations snubbed it. I don't think the black cards work as well as white but still looks great. Well done to all involved.

Black was choosen as to not make it look like a celtc end, maybe white vertically would have been better in every block and a white scottish cup, still looked great thou! :thumbgrin

Yeah I agree with that. Some amount of effort in organising something so big. Can't wait to see next years : )

Both ends looked good, ours went all the way round so was much better in that respect! The idea was great, shame the grey/black cards didn't stand out enough, but massive credit to everyone involved in arranging and organising it - made the start of the game all the more special.

Hampden and the SFA come in for plenty stick, and quite rightly so, but they do make the cup final a big occasion in terms of the pre-match displays and fireworks etc. Plus the teams walking out to Zeppelin was quality!

Agreed, celtics was smaller but plenty effort put into it. Not very original comsidering it just copied our semi final display changing only the year. Though they did have a large flag of their founder in the middle. Would be good if the club had taken pictures of all three displays to date and framed them for ER. SFA did make this year far better than last year and so they do deserve some credit. TV companies get little respect for poor images of displays.

Next time might be good to think of something different, more spectacular...like everyone having a lighted flare lol...ok may'be not get away with that but something different.

I dunno how much bollocks this is but someone said that the reason they didn't show the Hibs display as it was funded (in part) by a sponsor.

I still don't understand what it is meant to be? I can see the white castle - was the grey bit a star?
I thought it looked more Celtc-suited than Celtc's and Celtc's was more Hibs-suited with the team colours and the star.
It looked more like a Sect43 display than a hibs display - this is all just my opinion of it.

Were people supposed to hold cards in portrait or landscape?


I have to admit, I don't think it looked very good at all, especially with the black.
Funnily enough, Celtc went and copied Hibs again, but it looked fantastic - the exact same tifo but with '1875' and Canon Hannan would've looked better simply because it would've been more significant.

Hibs fans largely out-sang Celtc fans at the start and then nearer to the end. The singsong after they won was great to see.

Hopefully Sect43 can improve and build upon each display as I enjoy seeing them and I'm sure the players get a boost from them. I wonder if it would be better to have more input from fans before going through with a design or plan?

The grey bit was the Scottish Cup.

As far as I could make out, it was green with a black band running across it (Sec 43 scarf-ish) with a white castle (from the Club crest) in the North Stand and a grey (silver?) Scottish Cup in the West. As the display went all the way round, only the punters in the Upper South Stand (why was that split 75/25 in their favour?) would have an uninterrupted view. Any pics from up there?

All I seen was a hell of a lot of hard work put in by a dedicated group of Hibernian fans, bloody fantastic, made this fat,old,grumpy Hibby proud. well done all involved.
