Description

From Oblivion to Hampden is the remarkable story of how an ill-fated flirtation with the stock market nearly killed Hibernian FC. The club and fans first fought off a hostile takeover in 1990, before being rescued from administration in the summer of 1991, surviving to embark upon one of the most memorable cup runs in Scottish football history.
