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%
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.
