    That was supposed to be a light hearted response to the line I highlighted.

    Highlights at the back on Saturday:

    No goals conceded. Ross said post match that they have been working hard on the defensive side of the game.
    McGinn has another position. Did well.
    Doig, an 18 year old kid was trusted by the manager to debut. That is a massive thing. I don't know if he will make it but he is in the mix which is massively positive. A boost to his confidence and self belief.
    Stevenson came on and made a wonderful block to stop a shot which could easily have been the equaliser.
    Defending and Squirrel were the positives from Saturday.

    As well as replacing our rubbish full backs I think we need a new goalie as well, Marciano confirmed how rubbish he is by failing to stop that free kick that was pinged right into the postage stamp...

    Dearie me! We could sign Ronaldo & Messi and some of our 'fans' would still find ways to criticise them...

    I am surprise this thread is still open. It has all the hallmarks of a trolling thread. OP posts a controversial opinion and then disappears completely, not offering anything to the discussion, no back up to their OP. If you think we don't have quality in the full back positions tell us why.


    Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former.

    Good fullbacks seem to come in pairs - Laursen and De La Cruz; Murphy and Whitaker; Stevenson and Gray. Outside of those pairings, we’ve had journeymen at best as fullbacks. Maybe no coincidence that we are more successful with a pair of decent fullbacks.
    Brownlie and Shades -'Duncan and Davis

    Out of all the full backs I've seen, my 'dream paring' would be John Brownlie and John Parke....although obviously they did not play at the same time.

    I know David Murphy would be high on a few lists, but I never got the chance to see him, other than on the odd video.


    And for what its worth I don't agree with the OP

    David Murphy was the perfect left back.

    I thought our full backs were ok on Saturday - they needed more from the players in front of them - Burke had the run of the right hand side until he was near the box, where Doig kept him from putting crosses in. If you look at Killie's crosses, the vast majority of them came early and from 25+ yards.

    Ideally Doig and Wright would have been keeping the Killie wingers occupied at the other end but they struggled to do so because we defended narrow in the midfield. I don't think that was a failing on the full backs' part.

    Anyone else remember a couple of full backs back in the day started with great promise then just disappeared: Rab Kilgour and Tam Stevens?

    I thought Sean Mackie looked a great prospect when he first broke through, looking great going forward in particular. But rather than doubling down on his efforts and upping the ante he seemed to take the foot off the gas and was criticised for putting on weight in close season 2019 IIRC. If he has learned his lesson I would expect him to challenge again for a left back slot this season - but ONLY if he's prepared to work his cajonies off and treat his body like a temple. He has competition from the youth ranks now in Doig and that can only be a good thing.

    Nearly, but he did lack pace.

    Completely agree. Infant the full back 4 from the CIS cup final is the best we have had in a long long time (‘Murphy, Jones, Hogg and Whittaker (the young version😁 )

    David Murphy with faster turn of pace would have went for much more than he did. Probably wouldn’t have been at Hibs in the first place.

    What a player he was. Brilliant times.

    Yep, Murphy with more pace would never have seen us, a bigger club would have had him in minutes.

    He had superglue on his boots and could ping the ball well, but for DM it always comes back to that first touch. He really could trap anything he received, without spilling his brandy or dropping his cigar.........
    There's only one thing better than a Hibs calendar and that's two Hibs calendars

    The way he used to bring the ball down by just letting it touch the outside of his boot. Poetry.

    It’s not as if he was slow either, he could shift once up through the gears. Can’t remember many wingers of that time giving him the runaround.

    Short and long passes,no problem. Hard and fair in the tackle, great positional sense too. Glorious

    Brownlie and Schaedler, the best ever, certainly in my lifetime. 1972
    willie Miller and Graeme Mitchell were pretty decemt. 1991
    Steven Whittaker and David Murphy already mentioned 2007
    SDG and Lewis, Again pretty decent, 2016
    But see what a good fullback pairing has meant to Hibs. Every trophy won in my lifetime has had a “decent “ full back pairing

    Doig has just played his first league game at 18 and didn’t look out of place. Written off already though, tremendous.
    Hey first game of the season, against a great player ,he did a pretty good job. >I was impressed and Lewis cannot go on forever....The pace of Celtic wingers in past three years now have caused us problems at the back and we really need fresh players there..so far so good I reckon....give the youngster a chance he will be a talent ..and an asset.
