Love thy neighbour

Far be it for me, at this time of national debate, to draw your attention to a newspaper sometimes referred to as the Torygraph.

But I'll make an exception for Roddy Forsyth's quirky take on Sunday's match at Easter Road.

The redevelopment of the East Stand has thrown up a whole new viewing experience in Leith.

Thankfully, unless they decide to redevelop the redeveloped North Stand, my privacy will be assured:
Once upon a time the vista from the upper reaches of the West Stand at Easter Road was of ships plying peacefully up and down the Firth of Forth in the distance.

However, the demolition of the East Stand has opened a whole new world of wonder for spectators on the opposite side of the ground – and for many equally fortunate denizens of the adjacent stands.

The flats between Hawkhill Avenue and Lochend Park are now in full view and provided a wealth of alternative entertainment to Sunday's televised game between Hibs and Celtic. The following summary gives some idea of the action.
