    Good result, proof that Hibs are on the up. Sadly, it lets the Huns in.......... :(

    What a horrible phrase to use :mad:

    Unfortunately for Rangers fans the mountain is still to big to climb :(

    I think you have to review your meaning or interpretation of the word 'Hun'.... I assume that you, like many others out there, mean or refer to Rangers fans when you say 'Hun'. I am a loyal Rangers fan but never a Hun.

    Great result though... I couldnt believe it when I saw 0-1 and then I thought it was all over at 1-1 but to turn on the results and see 1-3, I was amazed!! :smashin:

    No worse than some of the references to Celtic I've seen here. :mad:

    Fair enough mason. Good on you. :smashin: A lot of rangers Fans of old might just disagree with your sentiments though. ;)

    Hibs have a fairly good record of upsetting the hoops. More importantly for footie North of the border, they and the Dons have developed good, young, Scottish teams.

    Is that the same Well that drew against the herts today :rotfl:

    In all seriousness I have followed the Hibees for years and suffered quite a bit of disapointment in that time. But this season has been a revelation and it's a great time to be a Hibee right now. The thing that gets me is that they are playing quality football and an average age of 24 in the team, maybe theres more yet to come, maybe not, but it is a sweet sweet feeling at the moment.

    I've noticed a considerable downturn on the use of that word by Sellik fans recently. Coincides almost perfectly since some German bloke got a high profile job involving waving to people from a balcony and designer cars, and making signs that he wants a pizza cut into four slices.

    Sure the two aren't related though....

    It can only be good news for Scotlands national team as well. Call me wierd, but I want to see all the UK national teams at their peak again. It's no fun beating the Scots when they're useless............ :D

    But seriously, no offence meant Adrenochrome. Apologies if any caused.

    Why? Is it worse than "Fenian b*****ds", the preferred term for Celtic supporters among the 'Gers fraternity? :confused:

    Sorry, I asked if the preferred Celtic supporters' term for a Rangers supporter, ie "Hun", was worse than the preferred Rangers supporters' term for Celtic supporters, ie "Fenian b*****ds". Why are you getting so indignant about it?

    I'm not getting indignant about anything.

    But there is always one person willing to lower the tone of a thread :rolleyes:

    Oh and to answer your question i would rather be called a fenian :censored: than a hun thank you very much.

    Lower the tone? By asking a perfectly valid question? Whatever.

    One other question, why is the term "hun" worse?

    I suspect because no Scottish teams would not get a look in when it came to a share of the spoils.

    I think the return of the annual Sweaties against the "Auld" enemy would be a good idea if only to satisfy the hordes north of the border but for me a British team must be the ultimate aim. After all you dont see Spain fragmented into its various factions.WE have :
    British rugby league
    British( ok Irish also)Lions- and what Lions!!
    British hockey team
    British athletic team
    Should be called British Cricket team bearing in mind Glamorgan players and the fact Mike Denness was a Scot
    British curling team
    British table tennis
    British Davis cup team
    British showjumping team

    The reasoN I support abritish team is beacuse I believe that Scottish club support would go through ther roof and more and more youngsters would want to take up the game in order to beat the English teams.When they put on the British football Lions shirt on ,though, they would do so with equal pride:uk: British

    Self explanatory really

    Fenian

    # One of a legendary group of heroic Irish warriors of the second and third centuries A.D.

    Hun

    Offensive Slang. Used as a disparaging term for a German, especially a German soldier in World War I.

    Ireland is part of the British Isles, that is why they are a part of the Lions team. That and the fact they usually have a few players that are better than their counterparts in the GB teams.

    Simply because there is no call for it The English League would gain nothing by allowing teams from Scotland etc to join their league.

    The term "Fenian" is used in a disparaging and offensive manner by Rangers supporters towards Celtic supporters. This smacks of hypocrisy to me.

    a)how do you know?
    b)it would be a new league

    I know a lot of English supporters would arrogantly dismiss the idea. they are wrong!Interst in matches agaionst Celtc and rangers would be huge and support fopr the likes of Hearts and Hibs would grow exponentially.:uk :uk :uk
