Stubbs is currently the youth team coach at Everton and was interviewed for the vacancy at Goodison Park last summer before Roberto Martinez took over.

According to Sky sources, the former Celtic defender has been given permission to speak to the Easter Road club about becoming their third manager in less than a year.

Hibs U20 coach James McDonaugh has been put on stand-by to take pre-season training on Monday as the hunt for a new boss, spearheaded by new chief executive Leeann Dempster, continues apace.

Antonio Tapia, a former assistant to Manchester City manager Manuel Pelligrini, is also believed to be on the short list, while Mark Venus, former midfielder Ian Murray and Motherwell manager Stuart McCall have also been linked with the vacancy.

Terry Butcher, who replaced Pat Fenlon in November last year, lost his job in the aftermath of Hib's relegation from the Scottish Premiership at the end of last season.

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
