Immortal Scottish Cup winner though? Been at Hibs what now? 12 -13 years? Same with Stevenson. You can't say either have had even half that time in good seasons. We're taking maybe 3 good seasons in that entire time for each of them.

These two should have been emptied a long long time ago I am afraid..

Far too may sentimental wee souls in the support who love them cause they try their best and they love the club,

Hanlon must be one of the worst Hibs captain's I have ever had the mis-fortune of witnessing.. No leadership qualities , not strong enough on the park , indecisive also... Weak minded and lacks all the attributes you need to be a captain....

Bit harsh.
There‘s been plenty calls for Hanlon to get capped over the years. That wouldn’t be the case if he’d had 10 bad or mediocre seasons.
Two Medals has seen off a few challengers over the years, so let’s not claim he’s a poor performer over his time at Hibs.

He is far from done, but he has always been inconsistent. There needs to be someone there to step up when he goes through these annual spells of low confidence.

He would be a good option on the bench we have seen season after season hanlon getting out muscled .

Always thought Hanlon was a chameleon of a footballer. Put him next to a decent Centre half and his game rises (McGregor, Efe, Fonts)

Stick him next to shite live McGiven, he plays as bad.

Now if we play him with an inexperienced young laddie, and he acts the same.

New centre half required.

There comes a time when the club has to move on past these guys who earned legendary status.... It’s now, without doubt. This season has to be the last for Gray, McGregor, Hanlon & Stevenson.

We need new to find new leaders.

In terms of the positions, centre half is the most pressing. We desperate need a top class centre half, possible two. We also need proper completion for Paul McGinn. At left back, I think we should put our faith is Sean Mackie and Josh Doig.

Hibs have finished in 4th place in the Premier League twice since 2007. Not saying the blame falls soley at their feet but the countless seasons of exceptional performances I'm really struggling to remember. If we were playing teams from 10 years ago in this league both would be turned inside out each week.

For a variety of reasons our team has failed to achieve what it should. 4th place is where you’d expect us to be, in a reasonable season given we have 5th biggest budget, and the Old Bigots advantage of huge resources both in terms of cash and referees.
I don’t think these two players have been responsible for our poor results over all. Quite the opposite.
Now however they are no longer the players they once were, but they have been absolute stalwarts.

Not going to have a dig at Stevenson because not only has he done well for us and won both cups, he has also impressed a whole lot of managers and seen them all out. I do worry though that in all this time we have never brought in any one good enough to at least challenge him for his position. Frustrates me and no doubt us all, that teams like Livi, Ross co etc who pick up probably a quarter of what we take in financially can continually get results from us. Maybe it is time to cut down the paid backroom staff and spend on the field. Also although I do love Hibs being a community team, I would much rather they competed on the park to give the communist a real lift.
