We Are Hibernian Book

Just as Paul McBride was banging his gums about Hibs a new book, We Are Hibernian by Andy MacVannan, has been launched looking at the club from the fans perspective. Contributors including Irvine Welsh, Dougray Scott, Dick Gaughan and many others (including 107 Cowgate) give their views on the club, its history and its place in Scottish society. At times it is funny, insightful and often exposes the very different views which exist within the Hibs support like any other support base. While media coverage has focused on aspects of the Edinburgh derby it has a broader significance exploring issues such as class, identity and culture through the prism of Scotland’s first Irish football club. Also as a fans book the various social experiences described will ring a bell with football supporters everywhere.
