Allan was immense in this game. 

Ian Black got ripped to bits by him that game. Hooked after about half an hour because he was a guaranteed red card otherwise. Allan left him on his arse on the halfway line at one point I’m sure.

Quiet in here recently so perfect time to ask for folks' favourite Hibs players of their lifetime. I've been attending since about 99 so a lot of great players in there. Riordan, Brown and Beuzelin were my favourites when I first started to actively enjoy going, ashamed to say I was a bit young to appreciate how good Latapy, Sauzee etc were when they were at Hibs.

I'm gonna go with a pretty vanilla choice in John McGinn. Probably the best all round midfielder we've had in at least the last decade, built a great relationship with the club and fans, and a cup winner. Hard to beat

Keith Wright. I liked Joe Tortolano too mainly because I enjoyed saying his name out loud.

ETA: suppose it would be more fun to elaborate on why. He scored in the 91(?) Skol Cup final when I went to the game wearing my new trainers which had lurid green laces and felt like the biggest Hibs fan on earth. He drank in the Figgate Whins which was my older brother's local so he was a superstar striker that I had a personal family connection to  in my daft wee laddie brain. He was also good pals with John Robertson which was always a good reminder jambos are human too.

Russell Latapy was unbelievably good. I’m old enough to have seen Pat Stanton, George Best and Des Brebner play for Hibs, so I’m pretty lucky!

I started watching during roughly the same period as you. Derek Riordan was my favourite player for ages, his return from Celtc won’t be beaten in terms of a deadline day signing for us. He then came on against Hamilton after about half an hour completely overweight and unfit but still curled in a belter from the edge of the box. Sum boi.

I think I’d agree with you though. John McGinn is a legend. The amount of games he dragged us through, during the end of his spell at the club especially,  was unreal and when he left the difference in our midfield was ridiculous.

That's a Kyle Magennis offer accepted apparently...

Meanwhile, Derek McInnes' whereabouts are unknown

We're not signing anyone so you'll be fine.

KEITH...KEITH...KEITH...

 

Is the correct answer. 👍

I never realised that you could have a parent and a feeder club in the same division. Fair play to Hibs, getting to see them up close before plucking them.

Franck for me, albeit his relatively brief playing stint - that raker at Tiny in the Millennium Derby the highlight.  Pornography.

We haven't signed him. Just done the medical so Derek can "swoop" later and sign him.
