The Scotsman - Recommended reads for 2015

We are Hibernian is the ultimate collection of  supporters accounts and experiences, all with one thing in common – the team they love!
This book features first-hand accounts from 'ordinary' fans as well as high-profile supporters that include Irvine Welsh, Dougray Scott, Charlie Reid of The Proclaimers and Dick Gaughan.
We are Hibernian captures the spirit of what it truly means to be a supporter of ‘The Hibees’ exploring the sights, sounds and smells associated with following the club from childhood into adult years.

By delving into the lives and backgrounds of an entire network of avid supporters, We are Hibernian explores how people become so involved in football and why the game plays such a big part in forming their identity.

There are stories here from men and women who were taken to football grounds as youngsters and now take their own kids, showing how the religion that is football can be passed down from one generation to the next, providing entertainment and family folklore for years to come.

Essentially this book is not just about football, but about the stories that surround it!

Full of witty stories and football philosophies, this book is sure to keep all football fans entertained.

This new edition has been updated to include accounts of that cup final weekend in May, 2016.

Really quite a bizarre take on the book in this article. I don't believe that any of those quoted were intending to sensationalise any of the 'issues' highlighted in this piece...
