    What a player Jimmy was. Heartbroken when he left to join Saints and typically scored the winner at ER on his first game back.

    Many Happy Returns .

    Oh for a player like him today!

    He gave that no 8 shirt to the Hibs historical trust from the 0-7 game quite recently.

    A true Hibby legend!

    Happy Birthday, James !

    Am sure both Fred and Brog have sent personal messages too

    I have told Jimmy about this thread and that it was all positive

    Jimmy and Ann are in sunnier climes today and will be having birthday lunch with old Hibernian favourites Jackie Mac snr and George Stewart.

    Many happy returns, Jimmy is on my personal first place podium with Pat Stanton. As a small striker Jimmy was who I wanted to grow up to be....

    More than 45 years since he left the Hibs, but the man is still revered.

    Itís a good point this ..I carry the same affinity to the stars of that team as I do to stars of more recent years ..deeply embedded in our history.
