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!Good to see the display properly.

Yeah I agree with that. Some amount of effort in organising something so big. Can't wait to see next years : )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!
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!
The grey bit was the Scottish Cup.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?
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?I'm still none the wiser. What were the black/grey cards meant to picture??
