60% Back Stubbs To Take Hibs Up

60% Back Stubbs To Take Hibs Up

The latest Vital Hibs poll shows overwhelming support for new manager Alan Stubbs with nearly 60% of all respondents believing he can lead the club back to the Premiership at the first time of asking.

We asked the question: Can Stubbs lead Hibs to promotion? The answers were as follows:

Yes, via the playoff's 41%

Yes, as title winners 18%

No 37%

Undecided 4%

Despite being a managerial novice it shows the faith the support have in the new man who, despite financial cut backs at Easter Road, has assembled a strong first starting X1 however concerns remain over squad depth should injuries and suspensions bite.

The optimism within the fan base is a far cry from May when the supporters anger spilled over to protests about the board and then manager Terry Butcher, who managed to take over a poor Premiership side in mid-table and make them worse, which culminated in Hibs relegation from the top flight.

With an Edinburgh Derby on the horizon, it could well be that come the final whistle on Sunday, Hibbies everywhere will believe whether this is truly a wind of change at the club or another false dawn.

Why not have your say on our new poll, situated to the bottom right hand side of your screen, which asks the question: Where do Hibs still have to strengthen?

Why not join in the fun and cast your vote for the Vital Hibs Player of the Month award after every match.

The player ratings thread in the forum is where you can help the site to identify who's been the key performer over the last 30 days.

Alternatively you can use your social media login to leave your ratings on the match day report.

At the end of the season, we'll put every entrant into a hat and pick a lucky winner to present a Player of the Year Award to the person who's consistently been voted for as our star man.

So why not register today to have your say starting with Sunday's Edinburgh Derby against the Jambo's.
