    RIP Old boy. You got to see Hibs win the cup!
    Its Liam Henderson to deliver...
    And David Gray has scored! The captain!
    Hibs are standing on the brink of history!

    Wow - while I wish Sam had had another hundred years, there's something almost of almost mythical...maybe even mystical quality in this. I am so so glad he got to see it.

    RIP Sam; may the sun shine on you, and Leith, forever

    Everyone's words of support are helping me thru this. I appreciate every comment, prayer and positive thought.

    Guys and girls I can't emphasise how much your words are encouraging and helping me. This battle has barely started but I know you'll be by my side every step of the way - it's giving me great strength - Shaun 16/03/2016

    If anyone deserves a standing ovation on Saturday
    then its Sam. 106th minute isn't going to work but 10 minutes 6 seconds might.

    At aged 106 the clock is kind of ticking but what an amazing memory to take with you and so deserved.

    A club arranged pre match minutes applause would actually be a more fitting tribute.

    To see us lift it in his 106th and final year - as we're fond of saying as hibees - it was written in the stars.

    RIP Sam, I know it's little consolation for your family and friends but what a way to go. Your story is just one of the many things I love about this club.

    just got back from a funeral (where everyone was asked to wear their own football colours), get news about earthquake in Italy, Mates Mother dies, and now this! they do say things come in threes. Sad news but I bet he died a happy man.

    What a fantastic innings. I know what the 21st May meant to me, I can't begin to imagine what it would mean to this gentleman.

    Not a bad innings that. Delighted that he saw us lift the trophy before he passed away. RIP Sam

    Sad news.
    What a life Sam had, and it was so special that he lived long enough to see his beloved Hibernian win the Scottish Cup.

    RIP Sam

    When Hibs went up to lift the Scottish Cup you were there.

    heard him say a few words at the St Pats do, came across as a kind and gentle man

    Sam was an Honorary St. Patrick's Branch member and St. Pat's Hibernian Achievement winner in 2015. Here is our tribute to Sam on his 105th birthday. Kick on Sam.

    http://www.stpats.club/category/news/

    I think that Sam would appreciate Hibs horsing Morton by a large margin.

    my Catalan Hibby pal recently wrote this article for a Spanish football magazine about the life of Sammy Martinez.

    the headline means 'one cup before I go'..which is what they say for just one drink for the road
