Hibernian SPL Fixtures 2010/11 released

The new Hibs SPL fixtures were released today.  The first game of the season will be against Motherwell at Fir Park on 14 August 2010 with 3 out of the next four at Easter Road. The second game of the season is against Rangers at Easter Road which makes it a tricky first 6 games with Celtic in Glasgow on the 25th of September. There is a New Year game on the 1st of January 2011 against Hearts.  It’s the first time for a while it’s actually been on the 1st, I expect it’ll be moved for TV.  The boxing day game is at home to Aberdeen and we’ve got Dundee United at home on the 29th. All in all, not bad fixtures.

Hearts Boss Csaba László Sacked

It was announced a short time ago by Sky News that Heart of Midlothian manager Csaba Laszlo has left Hearts. He’s been moaning for months about not being given any funds by Vladamir Romanov and recent confirmation that there will be new faces at Tynecastle during the transfer season may have been the straw that broke the camels back. It seems the Gunts are a rudderless ship yet again…

Edinburgh football policing costs not that high

Under the freedom of information act, my friend requested these figures from Lothian and Borders police: The following costs were billed to Hibernian Football Club for the following
fixtures: Celtic 30/8 £6,407.80
Kilmarnock 17/10 £2,718.60
Aberdeen 31/10 £4,899.00 The following costs were billed to Hearts Football Club for the following
fixtures: Hamilton 26/9 £2,718.60
Falkirk 24/10 £2,718.60
Hibernian 7/11 £6,748.20 Putting aside the question of whether football clubs should have to pay for policing at all, I was always under the impression that policing costs were really high. In reality, they’re simply not. Even in the big games we’re talking around 40p per supporter. Considering the game against Hearts that is mentioned above was, I think, £27 for away fans – it’s not a significant overhead.
