This season to coincide with the launch of the popular book, Football Manager Stole My Life, The Hibernian launched a series of stories chronicling the virtual world of managing the Hibees in the realms of Championship Manager/Football Manager.
In the Inverness programme, Hibernian supporter Ciaran Barber explained how he worked wonders at the virtual Easter Road helm:
"Let me tell you my tale about when I built a thrilling Hibernian team that was capable of scaling the ultimate pinnacle as far as most Hibs fans are concerned, bringing the Scottish Cup back to Leith.
Glory was eventually achieved at Hampden and my name was immortalised in the annals of virtual Hibernian folklore (at least on my laptop's hard drive anyway).
Managing Hibs in Championship and subsequently Football Manager had never been an easy ride with every upliftingly positive season off-set against some demoralisingly poor experiences which had me reaching for the 'off' button.
Nevertheless for one special season something magical happened when I was assigned the task of being in charge of Hibs for the 2009/10 season.
I set about the task quietly, realistically and effectively and stuck with the majority of the squad I had inherited and even kept Brian 'Chipper' Rice on as my number two - largely because he did most of the press conferences!
An early set-back was a chorus of disapproval from the Easter Road regulars when I decided to sell Steven Thicot to Blackburn Rovers for £500,000. I backed my instincts and got a fair price for the French utility player.
A positive start gradually developed into an impressive few months, albeit mixed in with a few set-backs; namely an embarrassing early League Cup exit to lower league opposition.
But I stuck to my guns and eventually cracked it by switching from a 4-4-2 to a 'diamond' formation - literally with the 'diamond' I struck gold.
Tactically I was canny and seemed to get the best out of the bunch of players wearing the emerald green of my beloved Hibs.
With everything in place, Hibs won at Tynecastle - I treated myself to an imaginary night out in George Street to celebrate!
A surprise success story in the midst of this phenomenal transformation was the emergence of 'supersub' Kurtis Byrne. I gave the wee Irishman a chance and he regularly came off the bench to score goals - he was the ultimate impact substitute.
Beating Celtic proved impossible, but I managed to defeat Rangers at Easter Road and ended up in a creditable third spot in the table.
But the real story was the Scottish Cup run which started shakily, but ended memorably at the home of Scottish football, Hampden.
After side-stepping a few 'banana skins' I guided Hibs to a Scottish Cup Final showdown against Falkirk.
On paper, it looked a mere formality because Falkirk had been fighting relegation all season.
But this is Hibs we're talking about and nothing is ever predictable when it comes to the Cabbage and Ribs.
So I set about it cautiously and tried to flood the midfield - wee Lewis Stevenson had a great game - and hit Falkirk on the break.
Even though Scott Arfield put on a world-class performance, we scored the winner with three minutes to go when Benji put it in the net.
I went mental and I'm pretty sure my neighbours thought I'd completely lost the plot and wrecked the place.
What a moment, what a game and something that I will always treasure, so if you see me in the East Stand today give me a knowing nod of respect because, believe me, I have earned it."
