    Another well-known Hibs fan was the Hollywood great, Cary Grant.

    I for one hope that the corners do get filled in.

    Then we could have the North by Northwest Stand.

    Sadly there's nae room on that corner.

    Could have the 'East is East stand', though.

    Right then.

    Roald Amundsen. He was a Hibby.

    So... in your fabled stand, the walkway could be named after his greatest discovery.

    The North West Passage.

    Before he came to a sudden and untimely end James Dean was a ST holder so in tribute we could have the East of Eden stand.

    We shouldn’t name a stand after a player or any one individual, it sounds tacky.

    Leave them as is or cash in to the highest bidder.
    Surely can’t be concerned about it sounding tacky but happy for it to end up as ‘the sports direct stand’ or ‘wonga stand’ for example?!

    Well yeah! If we’re goona drop our drawers we may as well get as as much dough as possible for doing so!

    Preference would be to leave things as they are. We’re not so skint or living on the bread line as everyone on here suggests.

    The Liam Henderson corners surely?

    That's very, very good.

    Seriously though, I would absolutely love for the club to make one of the corners into The Liam Henderson Corner. I don't necessarily mean filling in the corner, I just mean pick one corner and call it that. Maybe the one where the TV people go for live matches.

    It's just too good not to.

    How about we make three of the stands standing only? Then the fourth one could be the Sitting Stand.

    Because we named the Famous Five Stand after a group of players rather than one individual, it is unique, and I quite like the fact we have something a bit different. It’s very Hibs in that respect. I don’t think there will be much rush to rename the three other stands, and quite rightly so in my opinion. Just because others doing so doesn’t mean we have to follow and do the same.

    Could only be the one between the East and the FF. Has to be from the same side as Hendo's corners and have us behind the corner taker and behind the goals. Plus shooting that way in the 2nd half.

    In fairness, you've given that the proper amount of thought.

    The subject appeared on the James Connolly thread and just wondered - has there ever been much appetite from within the club at working together meetings or AGM about either the East or West being renamed?

    Personally, I'd be happy to see the West renamed the "Sir Tom Farmer Stand"

    "The East" is all I've ever known for that stand and brings a lot of memories so no need to rename? Although a nod to the "Time for Heroes' team would be fitting?
