This is getting beyond a joke, Hughes should have been sacked weeks ago but lets wait even longer :confused:

The board have got a lot to answer for if they don't make changes soon

I think as fans its time to protest and force the change as no one wants 1st division football next year but how do we do that? protest outside the ground?

Thoughts please

For protests and managerial downfalls see Aberdeen.

Be careful what you wish for bet they rue the day they chanted "Smithy must go!"

Lets not go down that road.

Yeah that is one way to vote with our feet.

Maybe we could do something like this http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-merseyside-11459666 I know we could get a couple of great actors like Duggary Scott and maybe the Proclaimers could do the soundtrack .

This thread is OTT.

I dont think the fans need to protest as the board must know how we feel, either that or they are buttoned up the back.

Protests are usually the last resort to get rid of a clubs board/owner who dosn't have to answer to anyone. In a Manager's case such as this one a protest really will not be needed as Yogi will get his jotters soon enough.

It's quite simple - it may be that the results turn around, Yogi proves us wrong and we start climbing the table with no need to remove him. Highly unlikely yes, but possible all the same. Alternatively, either the board decide enough's enough already or results don't improve and he gets emptied. Both ways benefit the club without the need of any kind of yammish organised protest.

Anyone who was at the game will be able to confirm that the mood of the support was very apparent after the first goal went in, and the board will be more than aware of that already.

The club has already lost me and my family = 4 season tickets from next season and thats due mainly to the no standing rules and smoking rules !!

If and When !! we can watch the game on the telly - we can all go to the pub, and have a pint or 2 and still nip outside at half time for a smoke !!!!!

I disagree. Without supporter representation on the board or in the club, how else are they to be made accountable for what have been appalling footballing decisions over the last fifteen years? Only McLeish and Mowbray have worked out, the others have been nothing less than shocking.

To be fair, when Sauzee, Williamson and Collins were appointed they were undoubtedly the fans choice at the time too. It was only afterwards Franck and Fat Boab turned out to be disasterous, and Collins was the one who bailed on us and only after he'd won us our first trophy for sixteen years.

Only Mixu and Yogi could really be questioned as bad appointments IMO, and even then both were backed by a sizeable percentage of the support at the time.

It is however important that they act now with Yogi and more important than ever that they make the right choice of replacement.

Collins I'll grant you, but I felt that Sauzee was never ready and Williamson was someone who the fans wouldn't take to, even after having some success with Killie. Easy to say now, granted.

Mcleish's last 15/20 games for hibs ..tell me how many points we accumulated ..

Mowbray had to pish with the cock he had ..he had no option ..

Yogi took Falkirk to a cup final ..he also kept Falkirk up ..when he left they got relegated ..

Sorry, where has all this come from? Perhaps you should take a few moments to compose yourself?

What has Hughes' record at Falkirk got to do with anything? His record at Hibs is abysmal. Therefore, the board should be held accountable for his appointment. If they don't act, we should act. That is my point.

McLeish's record in his last 15/20 games is certainly better than John Hughes that's for sure.

Sorry, Mowbray had "no option"?? To do what - play some of the best football seen by Hibs fans since the Tornadoes? Win 3-0 twice at ibrox and 3-1 at darkheid? OK made some pesh signings but 2 of the best - Murph and Boozy. Knew how to change a game - unlike today when to the total astonishment of "fitba people" Hughes did the square root of fekall when we were creating nothing.

And by the way, no protests please. There were enough for the Board to take note of after the 2nd goal today, and there is the small matter of an AGM on Monday.

Maybe you should read my first post on this thread. I am not willing to keep throwing money at the club when the board are clearly incapable of making the correct managerial appointments to lead the football team on the pitch. That I mentioned McLeish and Mowbray is because I believe that they are the only managers that I feel they have got right in a footballing capacity over the years since I started going to ER. They have made several fairly poor appointments in the time since Alex Miller left. Duffy was a disaster, Scott a caretaker, they ****ed over Sauzee, Blobby drove the fans away, Collins walked out, Mixu was awful and Hughes is presiding over a run never seen in our club's history.

Tell me oh wise one why I should sit back and take this, continue to put my faith and money into the club, when the board clearly have it very wrong when it comes to football management appointments. Unless there is supporter representation at the club, how do we get our point across? If it isn't vocal disenchantment at the games that provokes a response that everyone can see is necessary, then I will bloody protest because they are not fit to run the club in a football sense. Business-wise, fine. But football, no. Tell me how Petrie, Lindsey and co are well placed to make football appointments when they've got no qualifications in coaching, youth development, scouting, etc? Aye thought not.

Anyways, I'm entitled to my opinion and I stick by it. I don't need arsey admins like you aiming sarcastic jibes at me.

Speak for yourself on that one, Barney. The only one I agreed with was Collins - Williamson was a disaster from almost day one, and Franck in my humblest of opinions was only appointed because Petrie wanted some return on his contract which I believe was around 6k a week at the time, and Franck was back in France recovering from injury.

All this guff about "I could see in Franck's eyes that he wanted the job" was eyewash. It was another option designed at saving money and trying to hoodwink the fans with the "Hibs connection" line....

I've never been a fan of this Board, but I went to Perth today to try and support the team and by extension the club - but to witness that insipid diplay was just about enough...

The Board really do need to have a long hard think about things and spend a bit of cash on the most important person in the club - the manager - and give us somebody with a bit of experience and pedigree. Because right now the only thing they spend top dollar on is themselves - and they need to be told so at the AGM.

I'm not holding my breath though, as I've been at one AGM and it was more stage-managed than your average Tory Party conference - too many brown-nosers there for my liking.

Anyway, rambling rant over...

So you advocate continuing to throw money at the club to be repaid with mediocrity, incompetence and poor performances? There's a line, it's been crossed.


Yes I do.

Fact of the matter is if you are a Hibs fan you are a Hibs fan, end of story.

No real fan picks and choose the games they go to, they are not fans they are part time followers. If it was up to you lot we would have been through three managers in the last 24 months - farce, get a grip and have a word with yourself.

As for protest - the only thing I will be protesting against is part time fans and those who boo there own, team, players and manager - disgrace.

This is getting beyond a joke, Hughes should have been sacked weeks ago but lets wait even longer :confused:

The board have got a lot to answer for if they don't make changes soon

I think as fans its time to protest and force the change as no one wants 1st division football next year but how do we do that? protest outside the ground?

Thoughts please

Fans are already staying away from home games so the protest has already started.

There is a very good piece in today's Scotland on Sunday

ACCORDING to the St Johnstone support, John Hughes will have been sacked by the time you read this. However long the Hibernian board decide to give their beleaguered manager, there can be little doubt that time is running out. Late goals by Liam Craig and Marcus Haber yesterday dealt him the biggest blow yet in his quest to silence the critics.

No goals, no meaningful chances and - bizarrely - no substitutions was the story of a performance that was every bit as bad as the result suggests. "You don't know what you're doing," was the chant as matters drew to a close, and this time it came from the travelling support. They would have given Hughes a harder time at the end had more of them bothered to stay that long.
As small a following as Hibs have taken to Perth in recent times were given nothing to improve their morale. After a dreary match lifted only by St Johnstone's substitutes, two of whom made the scoresheet, the Edinburgh side find themselves a point off the bottom of the Scottish Premier League, without a win in ten matches this season.

Hughes, who admitted that it just wasn't good enough, later denied that he was under pressure. "I am really close with the chairman," he said. "He knows exactly what needs to be done at this club. He knows the work we put in. It's part and parcel of football. Where are we in the league? Joint second-bottom? It's not the place you want to be, but hopefully this will give us an injection to get up the league.

Having been one of the very few who has been at EVERY game this season
ive suffered just like you all. BUT im a Hibs supporter and i know too that this is just not good enough!

Yes you can get out on the street and protest and be just as boastful of your protests as your pals down Gorgie way..... Look where that has gotten them??

The only way is to make a CHOICE one which you as an individual have, you either go or you dont??

The Hibs support this season has had high expectations and maybe set their goals higher than what is actually achievable from a group of talented players who will take TIME to gel.

NO ONE wants to be second bottom of the league do they? Especially HIBS. We cant go changing managers willy nilly just cause we think it will be different.

John Hughes IS a Hibby and he IS manager of our club these are facts!!! HE will be hurting as a supporter and as a man from the scathing accusations that are printed on here. When he didnt make subs yesterday i thought too that he just didnt know what to change or how to make it better. I was angry disgusted and disappointed too. BUT as i say i AM a HIBS supporter and not a very happy one either! We are used to picking ourselves up, dusting off the smile and getting on with supporting our team. They are HIBERNIAN FC !!!!

The Hibs support make more impact with their feet...........by staying away......

Dont get carried away with the ranting and raving going on, either support them through a bad time or stay away and spend the money in the pub.

Good or bad i know what i, as an individual and a HIBS supporter will be doing

Do you? :yawn:

Who gives a **** about them at the moment? There are far more pressing issues closer to home than worrying about what that mob think. This bugged me at the game yesterday, many hibbies were more concerned with calling their fellow followers 'dicks' for questioning yogis tactics yesterday and with the guy that had a hearts top on in the saints end than the actual football. It beggars belief!!

Mind you, with your approach, they'll never be made accountable as long as the money keeps rolling through the turnstiles. I applaude their business logic but they are shoddy at identifying good managers.

I dont advocate boycotting games ..no true hibs fan should even consider that ..tell you what ..have a read at one or two of the hibs accounts threads then come back and tell me a boycott is a good idea ..

We are doing not too bad compared to other clubs financially but starving the club of much needed income in this current climate is a no no ..

Think about it ..

Bollocks. If that useless **** is still in charge at the Killie game there is not a hope in hell I along with probably most of our 'group' will step foot in ER. And you couldn't find a truer bunch of Hibbys, guys that went to Holland, then Maribor, guys that have held season tickets for 20 years, guys that have missed about 5 away games between them in the last decade.

Hibs might take a 20k hit, but thats a small price to pay in the grand scheme of things. The board will take note when there is 1/2k taken off the attendences.:bye:

Great piece, the Scotland on Sunday is a great newspaper too not one of the comics like the sun and Daily Record.

It cracks me up that Hughes says he is very close to Rod as it seems he is almost trying to buy himself more time. Unfortunately for Yogi it will be the board of directors that decides his fate very soon not Rod.

I don't have the disposable income to have the luxury of attending every game, nor the facility to stump up the best part of 400 upfront for a season ticket. I do, however, get to as many as I can and go to the odd away game too.

Stability comes with time, and at ER you dont get time. Fact - we finished 4th last year and qualifed for europe. Fact our season has not started well, but last season we went off like a rocket and limped the the line like a half dead donkey - whats to say it wont be the opposite. But we will never have stability if we keep measuring managers over callendar years etc - what happened at the end of last season is done.

This season has not been great, but I believe it will turn for us. We have important players like Murray and Duffy and Zuma to get back who I think will make a huge difference. But maybe I am too hopeful, maybe wanting our manager, who like it or not achieved a lot with our club last season, to turn things round is wrong.

We complain when players or managers leave within a year -18 months for bigger clubs and more money - what does that make us for wanting rid of someone just like that - are we the fickle ones?

At least it is not just one of you that did not bother to look properly at what I wrote - as if you had you would have realised that I was reply to a comment that related effectively to people deciding not to go to games because they did not think we were going to win, or play samba style football - that is picking and choosing and my comments relates to that.

I would never determine whether or not someone was a Hibs fans by the games they could attend - but those who can and elect to stay because we wont get the result they want is a different thing as far as I am concerned. When does football ever work like that - I dont event think the most devote Man U fan think they are "due" to win every game.

if you went to your local chinese and the food on offer was honking would you keep going back in the hope it would get better..........would you **** so don't expect people to pay a fortune to watch the dross hughes is serving up.

my mate binned his season ticket before the split last season. he couldn't take anymore. he went to maribor for the crack and to the 2nd leg as a guest. he won't be returning until the board show REAL ( a word you like ) ambition. thats him, his bairns and faither. now i'd call him more of a supporter than you beause he know highes is ruining the club and the only way that board will empty him is if numbers through the gate drop so i say good on him. i still go to the home games but it's becoming increasingly harder to stomach the football on show.

Your mate and you need to get a brain and stop acting like a couple of fools. You have confirmed what I thought and what I just said above a Hibs fan that only wants to watch a team that is winning - maybe your mate should get a season ticket at Parkhead or Ibrox where he will be surrounded by likeminded fans.

As for your Chinese food analogy if you went for a meal and you left after your three courses - thinking that was really good, at the end of that meal I feel happier than I have with any Chinese I have eaten over the past few years and it was miles better than the one Mixu made - you would be happy? Yes of course you would.

You would not go out the following year get through your starter and say -actually when I think about my starter that I have just eaten and the desert I had at the end of my meal last year I am not happy - would you? Or would you close your mouth and get on with your meal, forgetting comparisons to certain courses from the year before?

i watched hibs home and away, getting pumped by every team in the league over the years but never once you could question the effort of the players. in all those years i've never seen such a gutless team as i am watching now. never have i seen such a dis-orginised team as i have now. duffy was a clown but without doubt we have the worst manager i have ever seen at the club. my first manager was Ned and we've had a few failures since those dizzy heights.
i take it your a youngster cause i was far more tolerant as a youngster than i am now. having spent the money i have on the club including tours to trinidad, germany, france i reckon i'm entitled to better seeing as we're in a better position than any outside the infirm to challenge for honours. or maybe this well run club is just ballony from the board of directors
