    Most consistent

    In years to come it will seem strange for those who have witnessed the last year to talk about a Scottish cup and Championship winning team, without paying much rememberance to some of the awful individual and team performances we have witnessed, along with some of the great displays. But then how is history remembered? We have had great players over the last 30-50 years, yet none except the present crew ever won that cup with us, not many won the league cup and only Lewis won 2 with us (I think). And you have to go back to the early 50's to see any player with the top division. So in that period there must have been great players who had off days. So what players can you think of in your own lifetime who you can barely remember having an off day? Who was most consistent and gave their all every game?

    For me the first name that comes to mind is Pat Stanton who played to consistently extremely high standards season in, season out.

    Jimmy O’Rourke. In my memory,anyway. If I'm wrong, don’t anybody tell me.
    P.S. Pat Stanton goes without saying.

    Same.

    Also John Brownlie and John Blackley who always seemed to be consistent superb. I'm trying not to include all of the Tornadoes but it's quite difficult.

    David Murphy.


    There was that one game when he misjudged a high ball and it bounced off his instep and went out for a shy.




    Some people fainted and had to be taken away in an ambulance.

    From his debut to his cruciate ligament injury Kevin Thomson was outstanding and never had a misplaced pass far less a bad game.

    He did practically the same thing the following season as well and someone shouted out "Aw not again!"

    I remember him being an absolute model of consistency until it became clear he was likely to be transferred and then suddenly he seemed to have forgotten how to pass forwards.

    Murph I remember being absolutely error free. And John O'Neil? In my memory he was so solid.
    so what do I know

    First player that came to mind.

    What a player Murph was.
    Seems like there's a hole in my dreams, or so it seems

    Murph would have been my first shout too.

    Mixu? I'll concede he didn't score enough to be meet the traditional definition of a "consistent" striker but he rarely put a foot wrong in terms of effort and application.

    He was being signed to replace Barry Ferguson.

    I thought Hibs couldn't replace Onion, but Des Brebner did a great job.
    Ever play this game chief?

    Jim Leighton was always Mr Reliable, also Keith Wright. He always put in a shift and never hid.

    Absolutely bang on Beefy - you stole my thunder! I was there the only day that David Murphy put a foot wrong too

    Didier Agathe was fabulous too. Who could forget that mazy run and goal v Dundee in a 5-2 win. Right up there with Ralph Callaghans

    Did I mention John Blackley was my hero ? Ok I will shut up....... There can be only one. And my vote will go to Lewis Stevenson. A very adaptable player , doesn't have all the silky skills of others mentioned , Winner of League and Scottish cup medals not equalled by any other Hibernian player.
    A boy who's dedication to his trade is beyond question , he has made everything out of the talent given to him. A playing career spanning 10 years or more at Hibernian. Lewis sums up Hibernian to me , he never ever gives up , not the best in the world , but has desire , guts , good skill level and a personality many professionals could learn from. A footballers Footballer and a coaches dream.
    And its been an honour to watch him all these years.

    A game v The Huns around late 1999 but I wouldn't bet on it where a then Hibs midfielder slagged the genius to me in a pub afterwards....

    Darren Jackson takes some beating for consistency in a Hibs jersey.
    For a long period he was worth the entry fee alone.

    just to mix it up, I decided to throw in Jim Black. Now Im didnt go to games back in the early 70's, but I know he came in for a lot of criticism, but Turnbull backed him in a video showing the little but effective things he done. We also had a Brown at the time, to join with Blackley and Brownlie, so what do people remember of Brown and Black

    Consistency would be the ones that managers stick in the team sheet first and maybe lasting a number of years. Stanton for me, in the later years Lewis Stevenson and Paul Hanlon. Others include Des Bremner, Brownlie and my first favorite player Eric Stevenson. Can I be controversial and add Benny Brazil?

    I first started watching Hibs in the mid-eighties when we were $#@!e, so...

    Gordon Rae was pretty consistent, but my memory might betray me there. Pat McGinley always weighed in with goals from midfield, and I don't recall KEITH KEITH KEITH ever letting us down; he didn't almost single-handedly keep us up as Darren Jackson did, though.

    But I think most of us remember the players who excited you, not those who were consistent. David Murphy was exceptional, though, and I don't think Scott Brown ever let the team down. Lewis Stevenson is hugely consistent but he'd need to be, given where he's been asked to play over the years. But since our time in the Championship, I find it hard to believe nobody's mentioned Jason Cummings.

    Never thought I'd say that.

    How about Neil Martin, the Bakerboy, John McNamee, Sodjer, Gordon Rae.....the list is endless. We have been blessed

    Cheers
    Could do with Martin and Baker now, goal machines. So many over the years, I liked Alan Sneddon and Gary Smith too not world beaters but very reliable.

    just to mix it up, I decided to throw in Jim Black. Now Im didnt go to games back in the early 70's, but I know he came in for a lot of criticism, but Turnbull backed him in a video showing the little but effective things he done. We also had a Brown at the time, to join with Blackley and Brownlie, so what do people remember of Brown and Black
    I remember what Eddie Turnbull said about Jim Black in that video and obviously I bow to his superior football knowledge, but I always thought Jim Black was the weakest link in the Tornadoes. Celtc's Dixie Deans got the better of him in too many vital games, and one goal from around 230 appearances says he wasn't much of a threat in the opposition area either. Compare and contrast his contemporary, Billy McNeill. If the Joe Harper money had been spent on a centre back instead of trying to fix a non-existent problem in attack, who knows how things might have turned out. For a name on the team sheet week in, week out over a long number of years not mentioned so far I'd say Arthur Duncan.

    23 posts and not one mention of Le God, Franck Sauzee. A football genius who gave his all to Hibs in every game he played.
    Literally goes without saying!
    so what do I know

    Now that's a great shout, spent a fair bit of my teen years avoidin gettin hit by him as he headed at you at the corner flag, nae stoppin till it went over the line!

    Would say the legend Peter Cormack too. As long as he was on the team sheet you knew you had more chance of winnin.

    And a vicious turn he had on hik for a tall, lanky man: he would birrell on a sixpence and next thing ball was in the net. And headers? Don't talk to me, man, he was sharp.

    And that on a very consistent basis, nae wonder Liverpool came calling....

    Junior Agogo was most consistent for being utter $#@!e. Does that count?
    Its Liam Henderson to deliver...
    And David Gray has scored! The captain!
    Hibs are standing on the brink of history!

    I hate to admit it but Andy Goram was always brilliant. Other players I would like to highlight: Boozy, Gordon Hunter and Ian Murray but I will say this for Lewis Stevenson, every manager since Williamson has had him in the first team, that is no accident!
