    Lennon: We should be top

    http://www.edinburghnews.scotsman.co...-top-1-4606456

    I'm aware this story is a few days' old so apologies if it's already been discussed. I just feel that this sort of talk underlines why Lennon is playing such a big part in instilling a different mindset at the club. No question we've become almost a new club since the momentous Scottish Cup win, but Lennon's 'big time' thinking has, I feel, really started to make the players realise they needn't settle for second best.

    Clearly, winning the league would be unthinkable given Celtic's overwhelming dominance, but the fact Lennon isn't satisfied with third at this stage of the season is very refreshing. And he's actually right! We probably should be top. We dropped a lot of points in that first quarter. Mind you, I'd rather start slow and build up a head of steam than start with a bang and fall away as so many Hibs sides in the past have done.

    I agree with you in that it's good to see Lennon thinks highly of where the team is at and it all adds to the feel-good factor and momentum we have just now.

    We shouldn't be top though. We're not the only team who has dropped points when we really shouldn't have. Aberdeen and Celtic have made their performances count more, have been more consistent and are therefore rightfully above us... for now

    We should have more points but as that is in the past we should be happy with what we have and try to make sure that we don't make the same mistakes again. We have only been outplayed once IMO and that was against Hamilton.

    We should have more points but then so should Celtic

    The only flaw with what he said was that we dropped 6 pointd when we drew with celtic and I think it was Motherwell, but I remember thinking at the time that we only dropped 4 points since we did get two points from those two games - whether that would have been enough to still put us top is another thing.

    It was the Dundee, st Johnstone and Motherwell games that he mentioned.

    All were draws that should have been wins so 6 points dropped.

    Correct.

    And so is NL.

    OP is right to bring this to light.
    Positive thinking.
    No reason we should settle for second best.
    Celtcs record due to be popped when they visit in December.

    The interview I saw NL said he pointed out to the players that had the results mentioned gone in our favour we would be top of the league as it stands.
    I don't think I heard him say we should be top.

    Makes a change to have a manager who doesnít hold back in getting the club into the headlines regularly.

    If any other Hibs manager had said this in the past, you can be sure we'd get humped in our next game. Somehow with this guy it's different.

    How about Hibs to do a Leicester City this season? We're 200/1 or thereabouts.

    Iím impressed that he always talks about the future.

    Heís building something here and Iím convinced heíll win us more silverware. Heís in no hurry to leave.

    If we can be with 10 points of the top thatís huge progress. Next season 5, then so on till we win the damn thing :)

    Rogers will be there for another 18 months at least, probably another 2 seasons after this IMO.
