    He's a great goalie.

    I wonder if we look back how many points he's been worth this season?

    1 on Sunday for starters.

    Commanded his box well enough against Hearts - worth giving him 2 for that?

    Rocky is on a run of nine good games

    Leighton and Goram had years and years of continued consistant success at the highest level

    Dearie me !
    Maybe the comparisons should come down to their time at Hibernian as an individual club. Rocky is performing just as well as Jim ever done here.

    Made a great save from I think Jordan Jones in the 0-0 draw vs Killie and another in the win at Dundee which if it had gone in could have changed the game.

    Jim Leighton 178 games for Hibernian
    91 games for Scotland

    MBE for services to football

    Rocky on a run of 9 good games after a mixed bag of indifferent performances interspersed with some admittedly outstanding saves

    Rocky has a long way to go to catch up needs to keep this run going for the next 15 years

    In my time supporting Hibs he's top 3 now:

    1. Andy Goram
    2. Jim Leighton
    3. Ofir

    He's good but the top 2 were world class at times. The only sad thing is the way in which Goram left the club but doesn't take away from the fact that he was an exceptional goalkeeper, especially when you consider his height.

    Never forget him scoring against Morton from a kick out as well, brilliant.

    Who knows though, in 2 years Rocky could well move up that list.

    So imagine that being 7 points in 4 games?

    Spot on!

    I have spoke up on here for Jim Leighton Rocky lately has been magnificent but Andy Goram has to be number one simply unbeatable at times

    I also liked Jim Herriot very much underrated and got the blame for the Hadjuk Split debacle

    Was too young to remember Goram at Hibs but for me he's up there with Leighton.

    Marciano seems to have upped his game. Heís a very, very good keeper at SPL level and the best at Hibs since old bandy legs. Comparisons arenít easy but Ofir is better with crosses and better with the ball at his feet. Leighton was a great keeper for Hibs, but he had his flaws and was prone to the odd howler too.

    An inspired signing by any standard.

    Rightly got the blame v Hadjuk Split, he had a nightmare at Easter Road and cost us the tie, 4-2 at home should have been 4-0, but overall was a solid keeper for us.

    Where's Roughie? - he was a great goalie for Hibs.

    Just because you dont agree with an assesment doesn't make it nuts. Theres plenty of people who think its a valid discussion to be had.

    But if we are going down that route then the most nuts thing Ive read on this thread is that Marciano has only had a run of 9 good games for us Thats just outright nonsense. A total dearie me statement.

    Leighton and Goram were fantastic but they spent the overwhelming majority of their careers in the same league Rocky is in now so to say they had continued success at the highest level is also stretching the truth.

    In their time at Hibs they've all been brilliant lets leave it at that.

    Rocky has upped his game to his A game since Hecky arrived

    He seems to have removed a lot of negatives from his game


    Goram and Leighton were always on their A game from day one



    You are of course entitled to your opinion and I of course repect that

    Please check feedback from other posters

    Rocky has been a revelation lately and his distribution has improved beyond all recognition his command of the box and his confidence have increased a 1000 fold

    It wasnít that long ago he was kicking the ball out of play or to the opposition much to the frustration of every HIBS supporter

    Long may his good run of form continue

    Still do not agree he is anywhere near better than Goram or Leighton

    Onwards and upwards

    1) Goram

    2) Leighton

    3) ?

    I am sure others will disagree

    It is all about opinions

    We have Ronnie Simpson a European Cup Winner

    Roughie

    Andersson

    Younger

    Harper

    Herriot

    Budgie

    Logan

    Thomson Allan

    Willie Wilson

    Still feel sorry for Bogdan

    Rocky is the man in possession of the gloves it is up to him to put himself up there beside the all time greats

    Jim Leighton, Darren Jackson, and Kevin Harper. My three heroes when I first started supporting hibs. Loved Jacko and find it hard to dislike him now even though he has more of an affinity with the Jambos.

    Anyway, I generally won't hear a bad word said about Leighton. The common thread even right up until he left was how many points he was worth to us a season. Top top keeper. We struggled to find as good for years afterwards (Chris Reid, Ollie Gottskalksson, Bryan Gunn, Zibi, Simon Brown) which is testament to how vital he was.

    We have a great keeper now that is for sure. I don't think we need to knock down club greats to appreciate what we have. If we look back on Ofir's hibs time and mention him in the same breath as Leighton and Goram then he'll have had a very successful time here.

    Don't see anyone knocking down club greats.

    Goram for me closely followed by Leighton then Roughie. Marciano up to 4th now and improving all the time.

    Some great goalies quoted but my favourite goalie quote was from Budgie

    'Come anywhere near my six yard box, Hately, and I'll break your effing back'

    Result : Rangers 0 Hibs 1.

    In this case it is nuts.
    Goram and Leighton played against Larsson Gazza etc the standard was different class to today. Absolutely no comparison to be made.
