Special mentions to the 5-3 against Killie and the 2-0 home win against Aberdeen.
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.
if I were picking them as favourites on the basis of on importance it would be in no particular order:
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
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
