    Was Hanlon not the Scotland captain at lower age levels? He had loads of U21 caps iirc and regularly captained the side, although I could be wrong.

    If so, having done that at an early age, played for Hibs through thick and thin under various managers and captains and now been chosen to be captain, what exactly is it about him that suggests he's not up to captaining Hibs?

    Apart from anything else he has been superb this season and at times when we've been flagging a bit further forward, he's driven us on.

    We were poor as a team on Saturday but I honestly don't think either Hanlon individually or as a captain was the problem.

    Our best sides have had captains throughout the team who would spur each other on. Too many players just disappeared into themselves on Saturday.
    You have to have a beard.

    The idea that this guy isnt captain material is nuts. We would never even been in the Scottish Cup Final of 2016 without his will to win. The guy bleeds green.

    Do you also remember the semi final when billy mckay got behind him twice in the first half only for Logan to save him? What about Glenn Middleton on Saturday but him on his arse only got Gogic to save him?

    Goalie makes saves? Shocker.

    Do you expect the opposition never to get a chance?

    Goalie should make the saves but defenders shouldn’t defend? What you on about now.

    You could argue that it's to Hanlon's credit that after those incidents he dusted himself down, put them out his mind and got on with winning the game.

    Team lose goals, keepers make howlers, defenders cost goals, all of them do.

    The best don't do it often, and when they do they bounce back.

    It can also help defenders be proactive, bold and aggressive when they know they have a keeper who will bail them out if they get it wrong.


    Macey bailed out Porto on Saturday, shame we didn't have anyone to capitalise on the fact.

    FWIW I think Hanlon and Macey are absolutely the last places we should be looking to criticise from Saturday, both as players and in Hanlon's role as captain.

    I've just voted for Macey as player of the season. 🙂

    You're right. Any defender that ever makes a mistake should never captain their side again. In fact they should be forced to retire instantly.

    If we were to appoint a new captain from the players already there, Gogic, without doubt.

    Haha are you ok? That’ clearly wasn’t the point I was making. Always good to take the blinkers off and have a bit of balance.

    Of course defenders should defend. Can you name one that never made an error?
