    I'm almost tempted to vote for Ulrik, not because he was the best (he was bloody good though) but one of my laddies bore a startling resemblance to him and was greeted in 'The Square' at the aborted Athen game by the assembled Hibs fans pointing and chanting OOOOOOOOOOLREEEEK OOOOOOOOOLREEEEK


    Or it may have been a reference to flatulence caused by beer and streetfood.

    Anyone remember the singing in the square aided by the helium balloons? Some gadgie bought a wee gypsy lassies entire stock - much to her delight!


    AND we never got beat!

    Was fortunately single at the time of Athens away so a two night trip was turned into a ten day mission, went to a couple of islands and back to Athens night before the game. We were pursued by knife wielding maniacs at one point heading back to town after the game, quite a hairy place

    You'd better hope your missus doesn't read that bit.




    Don't worry though, I've turned the laptop away from her side of my bed.

    Tough choice between Shades and Murphy, but I opted for David Murphy.

    I do, it was my pal Dex from Crazyhill, spent all his money on helium balloons and fags called Rex (which rhymed with Dex). It was hilarious and the wee Romanian lassie landed lucky, selling our all her balloons and then collecting them all back up empty for refilling!!

    The same guy refused his chicken kebab and chips on the basis his chips had 'gress on thum'. It was a liberal sprinkling of fresh herbs.

    If you remember we were sitting at the other side of that square in a quieter bar away from the radges, as the night went on we got rowdier and rowdier. As we got up to leave, a posh English guy shouted over at me, you lot have spoiled my whole trip. I was delighted we had obliged.

    On another note, on the way home to the hotel, the taxi driver tried to add a zero to the fare, my other mate Clepto stole the taxis rear passenger door lining, handle and window winder n'all in response.

    It would be interesting to see how voting would have gone if Shade's had played in Murphy's era and vice versa. That is perhaps often the case with these sort of things though.

    All great players. Ulrick probably shades it for me as a better defender than Murphy. Also, extra height very useful in both boxes.

    I reckon I saw every game Murph played for the first team give or take the odd one. I saw Shades first and second times round. I loved watching both of them, but Murph gets my vote.

    Agree with this.

    While I appreciate Lewis Stevensons hard work and all he has done for the club, in reality he is a very average player which is why I'm suprised to see him included on such a list. If only he could learn to cross a ball. I'm sure Derek Collins was a better player but wasn't here for as long.

    You don’t survive at a club for 10+ years without being replaced if you’re ‘very average’. Plenty managers have come and gone and all modified the squad, with the exception of left back.

    I think that’s a very unfair assessment

    That's fair enough and Murphy was a good player, I wouldn't denigrate his skills in any way. Shades got my vote and I'd always stick by that.

    I do think there's naturally a general bias towards more recent players though.

    If you've concluded Derek Collins was better than Lewis Stevenson then you must not watch Hibs often?

    Joe Davis was top quality at left back. Played more 200 games over five seasons (1964-69). Notched up 39 league goals mostly from the penalty spot. My abiding, albeit young, memories were that he always seemed to play well against Jimmy Johnstone and Willie Henderson. Only downside was he missed a penalty against Hamburg and we lost the tie on the away goals rule. If he had scored we would have been in the Inter Cities Fairs Cities quarter final which is the equivalent of the Europa League.
    Scored his first goal for the cabbage in an 11-2 humping of Alloa, which was probably my first evening game at ER.

    The point remains - I don't think Lewis is any better than an average player in my opinion. He is nowhere near being an all time great for the club. Great guy and gives his all, about as much as I can say.

    All time greats meet more criteria than simply being talented. We've had some right good players who wouldn't make any poll because of other failings. Lewis is in the official Hibs Hall of Fame. Voted by the fans.
    Length of service has to be one factor taken into consideration. I wonder where folk will stand on any nomination for George Best...

    Surely we can only vote for players we had the great honour of actually seeing playing for the club?

    Therefore there's an inevitable bias towards more recent players?

    I think that's fair comment. You can't really comment on someone you never saw. Especially given the lack of footage of the halcyon days. We defer to our elders a huge amount re the likes of the FF but it's not first hand experience.

    Missing the point. It's not about voting for players you've never seen but about the ones you haven't see in a while.

    Let's just vote for the cup winning side and be done with it.

    There'll be a few people along the way that will wonder why people are raving about Sauzee.
