    Sevco 2-1
    This for me as well.

    I think the Aberdeen game might actually be my favourite, we absolutely battered a very good side and even McIness admitted it should have been 5 or 6.

    The win over Dundee United at home last January was huge.

    We weren't a million miles from them at that point - look where the 2 clubs have gone since then.

    Lennon deserves as much credit for his performance around that time as he does for anything he's done since.

    That league is a graveyard and I'm delighted to have left it behind.

    Glad you mentioned the Killie game. Having done nothing against Aberdeen I had a feeling Killie would show for a gane against us. That was a cracking result and kept us in the running for second for another week.

    Just how good a result it was has kind of been lost because things went sour a couple of games later.

    All the above but special mentions for Brondby away, Falkirk away when Commons scored the last minute winner and Falkirk at home when Keats scored late too

    Would be very hard pushed to pick 5

    if I were picking them as favourites on the basis of on importance it would be in no particular order:

    Falkirk away

    Falkirk home

    Dundee united home

    Hearts in Cup 3-1 home

    Partick Thistle first game of season

    I don't think anyone should underestimate the pressure that was on Lennon and the players to win that league last season, had they not I fear things would have taken a dramatic turn for the worse, getting off to a winning start when coming from behind was also vital to our psyche in our first game back in the top league

    From an enjoyment perspective it would be

    2-0 v Aberdeen I thought we were brilliant that day

    2-0 v Hearts again we were brilliant

    3-0 v United again we were brilliant

    Hearts in Cup 3-1 home again we were brilliant

    Bizarrely a 2-1 home defeat to rangers around Christmas, I thought we were excellent that day and absolutely battered them

    Maybe just saying this because I missed a few of these other ones but I feel like the Simon Murray derby is a bit underrated

    The 3-2 game at Ibrox this season was one of my favourite games ever. It was an absolute piss take from start to finish, being out first meeting since the cup final. Loved every second of it.

    1) Hibs 2 Hearts 0 - Natural order, under the floodlights on a friday night
    2) Bronby 0 Hibs 1 - Tough european away tie. David Gary scoring another big goal after cup final
    3) Rangers 1 Hibs 2 - Beats the 3.2 this season for me, because we went there with Porteous and Stevenson in a back 3
    4) Hibs 2 Celtic 1 - Probaly our most complete performance, 90mins of pressing. Never let up
    5) Hibs 5 Kilmarnock 3 - enjoyable, game that we won. 5.5 was entertaining but we didn't win so it wouldn't make my top 5

    Beating Kilmarnock 5-3. That game had everything.
    The "Natural Order" game at Easter Road.
    The humiliation of Hearts in last year's money spinner.
    Both the victories at Greyskull this year.

    Keatings’ last minute winner vs Falkirk at Easter Road to all but mathematically win us the League is certainly up there.

    To go the distance.
    To stop at nothing.

    The jury had been out on Lennon for some up until the 3 - 1 win over Cathros Hearts. That game was massive in persuading the doubters that he was the man.
