    Can't believe Joe Tortolano hasn't rated a mention?

    Think McIntyre selection depends if he is judged on his play in the 1980s (poor and rarely a starter) and from 1991 onwards when he became an exceptional player.

    Retirspectively would maybe swap Weir (or maybe Rice) for Irvine in my team.

    Would that not be the same of pat mcginley, I thought it would be early 90s he turned into a proper footballer?

    I'd put Pat McGinlay in but he played his best football in the 90's. All Scottish team too! Nae chance of that ever happening again.

    Sorry to bring this one back to the top but I couldnt resist it.

    Rough
    Schaedler
    Rae
    Mcnamara
    Sneddon/kane
    Thomson
    Callaghan
    Collins
    Weir
    Irvine
    Durie/archie

    I think thats maybe my favourite side rather than the best one. Beating the yams in the Tom Hart Cup in my first ever Hibs game, killie 8-1, celtic 6-3 with benny getting a hat trick, joe getting 2 in the last 15 mins at tynie after blobbo had herts 2-0 up (with me in the herts end coz i was only allowed to go with my older mate who was a jambo) Standing in the shed at tynie with a hibs scarf on hoping rough wouldnt lose a goal in the edinburgh select v bayern munich was it? Bobby Thomson doing a de canio on the linesman in the days before it was fashionable! Oh the glory days of the eighties when the streams of pish at tynecastle were round your feet at half time not on the park sneaking another win against us.

    Sorry got lost in nostalgia, hi im Highland Hibby, just joined so its nice to meet you all and a pleasure to be onboard :pfgwa

    Archibald seems to be the common denominator.

    What a fantastic thing it was to have him as a player.

    The team that beat hertz 2-1 at ER to end a barren spell against them. 17 October 1987

    I remember Goram, Sneddon, Rae? Hunter? Mitchell? Possibly Chisolm?

    Kane May Watson Collins,

    Strikers cannot remember. Cowan?

    Main things I remember are May and Kanes goals.

    And a couple of saves by Goram near the end.

    The pitch invasion

    What a day

    Although to be fair one of my most memorable Hibs goals was a Stuart Turnbull diving header at Tannadice early 80's in what was our first win at that ground for donkey's years

    What a day
    That was some night. I thought it was a re-arranged new year's day fixture? The crowd was massive and we were rammed on the old east terrace. Official attendence was around 26,000-my erchie.


    Nae suggestion's for Brian Rice's inclusion? He was one the better player's in our midfield of the mid eighties?
