About this product
- DescriptionBy 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 is it the binding of tradition, memories and experiences off the pitch that make them believe their first choice was the right one? There are stories here from men who were taken to the football grounds as young boys and w take their own sons, showing how the religious following of football can be passed down from one generation to the next, encapsulating more excitement and family folklore for years to come. Essentially this book is t about football, but about the stories that surround it!
- Author BiographyEnchanted by stories of Hibernian told to him by his father, Andy MacVannan experienced his first Hibs game at the age of ten in 1980. Hooked on the phenomenon of football, he became an avid supporter of the Hibees, regularly attending matches both home and away. At the beginning of the 1990s another passion took hold in the shape of punk rock. Embarking on a journey of discovery, his enthusiasm for playing and writing about music saw him enter into the world of the music fanzine. Football was temporarily kicked into touch but still tugged at his heartstrings from the sidelines, eventually leading him back to the club he loves. In We are Hibernian Andy sets out to explore the emotional and enduring connection to Hibs that unites all fans. Over the course of a year and a half, interviewing supporters from all walks of life, he discovered that football is far more than a game, and that Hibernian lies at the crux of many different friendships and communities.
