It has also been anounced that the new Hibs home strip for next season will have white sleeved killing of teh speculation that they were about to unveil an all-green top. Hibs commercial Director Steven Powell said tha he had been surprised at the action when he refused to rule out such a change to the jersey He said I was asked the question directly, would I ever completely rule out green sleeves. You never say never, but the new home strip will be a traditional Hibs jersey. "A lot of effort has gone into the design and while I am not going to give the exact specifications, I am sure the fans will be delighted with both it and the away strip which Dougray will be wearing tomorrow. "It was never our intention to do away with the white sleeves which are so much a part of the clubís history and tradition. "I have to say I was a bit taken aback by the reaction to the speculation concerning the colour of the sleeves, I had a lot of e-mails telling me not to do it and only one letter saying the writer would support the club whatever it did. "Personally, I am a traditionalist, I love the history of the game of football and since coming to Hibs Iíve done all I can to absorb the traditions and history of this club by speaking to old players, Sir Tom Farmer and the like about what has gone on in the past. "White sleeves mean a lot to our supporters and, as in announcing our reduced season ticket prices earlier this week, this is very much about getting back to basics, doing what we can for our supporters." Anyway make sure your up bright and early to watch Soccer AM I believe the show starts at 9.00AM REMEBER ALL THE TOPICS THAT APPEAR HERE CAN BE DISCUSSED ON OUR MESSAGEBOARD
