    Paul Hanlon

    Congratulations to Paul Hanlon on the ten year anniversary since his debut! Fantastic footballer and has developed into a top defender too. Great to have seen him gain an international call up for last November's friendly too. Here is to many more years good service from another of our own.

    Wonder if anything set up for his testimonial year?

    Brilliant servant to our, and HIS club. Amazing that we have not 1 but 2 people you could describe as 'mr hibs' in our ranks. Not to mention his cup winner's medal.. in a word, legend.

    Alan Stubbs completely changed him as a player and gave him confidence on the ball. He's now one of the best centre halves at the club whereas before 2014 I wouldn't have been fussed if we had got rid of him. I'd say he has been the most improved player at hibs over the last few years and has become one of best ball playing defenders in Scotland which is testament to himself and the coaches who have worked with him since relegation

    One of the most underrated players I've seen at ER. A great asset to Hibs and a very good footballer.

    Not to knock Lewis’ service to us whatsoever but with Paul having grown up a Hibs fan and then go on to play virtually every game of his career for us, I would have Paul ahead of Lewis for the Mr Hibs title.

    He has suffered at the club over the years by having less than competent centre back partners. I think he has played at his best along side Daz.

    Him and Lewis are two players you just don't get much at all in the modern game. That we have both is staggering, and both Scottish cup heroes.


    Do you think your security can keep you in purity, you will not shake us off above or below. Scottish friction, Scottish fiction

    A really good ball player, some of the dinks forward he hits are tremendous and it's real testament to his character that he has stuck with the club through some of the darkest days in recent history.

    Congratulation Paul, and thank you.

    We never would have been relegated if he hadn’t got injured

    Always happy to see his name on the team sheet

    Agree with this, very rarely see him get bullied from opposing strikers anymore & can pick a pass

    I remember when he was on loan at St Johnstone, he played left back I think in a televised game against Rangers, couple of surging runs and a lovely deep left to forward right cross-field pass that was just sublime. I knew then he'd do more than alright!

    Just a hibs fan living out the dream I'm sure many of us have had, to play for hibs. Congratulations, Paul you have been a brilliant servant for our club and have developed as a player so much in the last 3-4 years


    Not to mention scoring one of the most important goals in this clubs history. If it hadn't been for his late equalizer at tynecastle in 2016 we would have been out the cup and 21.05.16 never would have happened. For that I am forever grateful to him.
