The Aberdeen fans might dispute it, given their League and European success in the 80s, but Hearts have historically been third in terms of support, wealth, etc. Hibs were invincible in the 50s but have largely been gash since.
Credit where credit's due: the hairy backs beat Barca the last time they met in Glasgow (1-0. scored off a free kick from Nakamura).
Everton aside, I doubt that very very much. Top three's settled already, Spurs, Arsenal and Everton for fourth. Some of the teams you mention will be battling for Europa places but if that includes Swansea then Laudrup can have any job in football he wants.For the few of you who might care about events in northern Britain, Heart of Midlothian, Scotland's traditional 'third club', are facing a winding up order over non-payment of taxes and have been late paying the players...
They could have one that three or four nil and it wouldn't have flattered them. Clearly not firing on all cylinders but they absolutely bossed the game. Gooners a bit twitchy after a bad week?
I could watch that every day for a year and still not get tired of it.
It's fine but not in that combo, IMHO. Besides which the far greater offence is the name that attempts to send an Ivy League, New Englandy message but which is in fact a slang word for the male appendage.
By your criteria, Forest and Villa trump Derby and they can throw European Cups into the mix as well. More league titles than WBA doesn't make Derby the best team in the midlands. Anyway, you appear to have mistaken me for someone who gives a shit. Used to watch Forest when I was a student in Nottingham but have no strong feelings for any midlands sides. Was never keen on Derby for some reason though...
I know only too well: as a student many moons ago I shared digs with a Villa fan and a Wolves fan and had a West Brom classmate a couple of doors away. Got very shouty at derby time. Villa were decent enough then (Taylor/Big Ron era) and felt themselves to be the aristocrats of West Mids football but the rest of the Birmingham sides were poor. East mids teams were much stronger then: even Notts County were in the top flight.Always liked the Baggies-as a Ranger, it's...
Long's cross for Morrison's opener was the best seen at the Hawthorns since the days of Wullie Johnston (or so a Baggies-supporting friend assures me). Vying with Stoke to be the best in the midlands though that's not as hard as it used to be given the state of the others.
BB was one of the main shirts of choice for the original London mods.
