35 Please correct me if I am wrong. It took 35 games of the 1997-98 season for Hibs to get relegated from the Premier League. The achieved this illustrious moment in their history by bottling a 1-0 lead to lose 2-1 to Dundee United at home.
36 In the 36 game season of 1985 - 86 Hearts were unbeaten at home winning 12 and drawing 6 matches. A feat you will find Hibs have not achieved since reconstruction and possibly a damn sight futher back.

When the play offs for relegation from the Premier Division were in place the cr** teams were thrown a lifeline and played a 37th

"The long wait is over for Heart of Midlothian. For 48 years they have striven to emulate the occasion of 1906, when the Scottish Cup was won at Ibrox .Now their name goes on the Scottish League Cup, their first major trophy win since then.
They defeated Motherwell by 4 goals to 2 at Hampden Stadium. Glasgow, on Saturday, and let it be said right away that victory was merited."

55 Number of League goals Drew Busby scored for Hearts and who can forget his derby debut goal V Hibs on 8th September 1973.

Sat 21 Apr 1956 Celtic 1, Heart of Midlothian 3

The Teams


Beattie; Meechan and Fallon; Smith, Evans, and Peacock, Craig, Haughney, Mochan, Fernie, and Tully


Duff; Kirk and McKenzie; Mackay, Glidden, and Cumming, Young, Conn, Bauld, Wardhaugh. and Crawford. Referee - R. H. Davidson (Airdrie.)

"A dream of 50 years has been realised by Heart of Midlothian. At last the Scottish Cup has been won, to erase the sufferings of half a century, and if the search has been long, there is no shadow of doubt that victory in Saturday’s final at Hampden Stadium, Glasgow went to the better side.

There have been more exciting finals, but I doubt if there ever has been a more popular result. Down the years Hearts have been welcome visitors at all grounds in .Scotland, acclaimed for the skill and ability of their sides, yet always flattering to deceive. At least until Saturday—and the hoodoo was finally laid by a display of real fighting spirit at a time when it was most needed."
