With recollections of a host of legends at Easter Road from Pat Stanton and Gordon Rae to Des Bremner, Alex Edwards, Jimmy O'Rourke, Ally McLeod, Alan Rough, and the mercurial genius of George Best, In Colours Green and White continues John Campbell's epic historic trilogy with both style and color. The days of the "Famous Five" and League Championship successes may have begun to fade in the memory of Hibs fans but the period that followed brought with it some outstanding milestones in the history of the club. As pioneers in Europe it would always be something special when the team ran out under the floodlights at Easter Road to face yet more European opposition and on a number of memorable nights the men in green and white rose majestically to the occasion whether the opposition be Italian, German, Portuguese or English with giants such as Napoli, Sporting Lisbon, Hamburg and Liverpool all leaving Edinburgh empty handed. The League Cup was eventually won by the team that would become known as "Turnbull's Tornadoes," a side packed with wonderful soccer players who entertained wherever they played and are remembered to this day with huge affection by the fans of Hibernian Football Club. This second volume of the comprehensive postwar history of Hibs covers the years 1967-1986.
