One man "got us out of jail" so that the grail could eventually be obtained.
Step forward Paul Hanlon at the Budge-Bowl in the last minute.
Not sure I describe him as a talisman to be relied upon to dig us out of a hole on a regular basis, but he sure got us out of jail that day and kept us in the cup. Still love that image of him and Kitty looking like they were praying on the sidelines in the last few cup final moments
Probably have to justify that.
An Alex Miller team with a 'forward line' of Micheal O'Neil, Keith Wright, Darren Jackson, and Kevin McAllister and backed up by Pat McGinley from centre mid was brilliant to watch on their day.
could never understand Millers tactics when he had that talent in forward positions. For me it should have been if they score 2 we will score 3 with Miller it was if they don't score we won't get beat.
Crunchie was a great player and was great to watch as were the other aforementioned.
Riordan loved a late get-out-of-jail goal. Love watching the videos of all his goals, we'll be lucky if we produce someone as good as him anytime soon! Hopefully Cummings can continue his goal form into the Prem.
In the 40 years I've watched Hibs I'd only class Griffiths for 1 season and Darren Jackson for 2 seasons as talisman. We relied so heavily on them.
Other players like Sauzee, Latapy, McGinn, Riordan and Cummings have been backed by a good cast although you have to say Jason's contribution this year has been hugely significant - goals that have won points in so many big games.
