    Alan Stubbs for his historic achievement in winning Hibs the Scottish Cup for the first time in 114 years is and will remain forever a Hibernian legend. I also think his achievement of putting together in a very short space of time an excellent squad of players after inheriting a complete and utter shambles and a divided club in the depths of despair should never be overlooked. That team played some superb football in our first season in the Championship and even though we ultimately failed to go up we defied the odds and many peoples predictions (including my own) by finishing second, above the Rangers...a club with considerably more resources than we did.

    In his second season we got to the League Cup Final (which Hibs should have won), and won the Scottish Cup. The intense physical and mental pressure of having so many games and so many irons in the fire towards the end of that season cost us second place to Falkirk and defeat in the play-off...and who knows there may have been other factors at play behind the scenes. He left Hibs abruptly at a time when the club and it's fans were enjoying the biggest high of our lives, and led the way for Neil Lennon to come in and finish the job of getting us promoted and continuing the rebuild of the club. It's interesting to note how many key players of the current team though were recruited during Alan Stubbs tenure...a rookie manager who went on to become a club legend and forge a very special place in the history of our great club.

    Happy Birthday Alan...and thanks for everything you done for our club.
