The League Cup Final v Hearts in 1996 at the Chamber of Secrets. The one where Gazza has a ‘wee snifter’ at half time.
I was sitting a couple of rows from the front and ended up like a drookit dug. It didn’t stop my celebrations in the ground after the match or in the boozer that night. Good times.
There's loads of candidates. These are all just in a 5 year period.
Hearts at Tynecastle in a game Hateley scored a late winner in 1991.
Killie at Rugby Park in 1994.
Paisley in the early 90s, I think Scott Nisbet might have scored.
Dens Park in 1989 or 90 in a 2-2 draw. Davie Dodds played for us.
The 92 Cup semi at Hampden when we beat the vermin with 10 men.
Hibernian v Rangers, 27th December 1982. Pissed down, it was freezing too, and it was the kind of game you knew was going to end 0-0 after about 10 minutes. Should have stayed home eating Christmas dinner leftovers and watching Bond in the warm. Most of the bus stayed in the pub.
For me it’s easily the “Davie Robertson” game at Hampden, it was horrendous that night. No one cared though because we put those scumbags to the sword.
I also remember a home game against Hearts (I think) when the floodlights failed for a portion of the game. It was absolutely freezing and pissing down, it was grim. Think I was actually praying for the game to be called off.
The Scottish Cup Semi Final win in the North Enclosure when Davie Robertson was sent off by Andrew Waddell and Ally scored the winner was a bit “damp”. I remember the draw at Pittodrie when it was touch and go whether the game would start. A game at Tannadice (a draw? with Maurice Johnston scoring for us) when standing on the terracing at the allotments end was also somewhat grim.
I was in the Main Stand, but sat where the roof ended. Soaked through, but a great night. Me and old man jumped about in joy when Ally scored, and kept looking at our watches as it was a long way still to go to full time.
Somerset park few seasons ago in Scottish cup I think it was. On the terrace and the snow/sleet was non stop just before half-time until into 2nd half. We were all absolutely soaked to the arse and freezing.
Just about to post this. I remember walking back to Mosspark Boulevard to get a 34 bus and an underpass was totally flooded. Monsoon shit that night. 85 I think. Remember being gutted that my match programme was ruined.
Both times at Easter Road. In the 70s On the big terracing facing the stand. No cover and pushing down like yesterday we won 2-1 the first time. 2nd time was a boxing day same location only it was rain hail sleet n snow and it was freezing. Nil nil draw and one of the few games I've left early
Rous Cup, Scotland v England, 1-0 (Richard Gough )
It started raining as I left the house, bucketed the rest of the day and I could only get a ticket for the uncovered end.
I had to walk into town to get a bus home . Remember my squelching socks had the dye off my trainers.
As in travelling it would be Osasuna at Ibrox 1-0 Craig Paterson. Even the subway got shut due to flooding. Actually during the game it’ll be having a North Enclosure ticket for Ally’s semi-final v the Humphers when we survived Andrew Waddell as ref and biblical style rain !!
Osasuna in 1985 at Ibrox in the UEFA Cup was the biggest soaking. If it had been a league game there's no way it would have gone ahead:
The worst I've ever felt though was a game v Dundee Utd in 1989. The rain turned to sleet and it was blowing a gale. On the bus back home I couldn't stop shaking and no matter how high the heating was I couldn't warm up. Ended up with a heavy cold and a few days off work lol.
