    If this was about Whittaker the brains trust on here would be calling it a disgrace and think about his poor wee family

    There are probably other people like myself who wouldn't wipe their dog's arse with a poll on sacking the manager at the first sniff of bad form, and so you should probably factor in a fair amount of support among these people who didn't vote.
    What a superior poster you are then eh

    I really do wonder what some people want or even expect from Hibs, we cant expect to have it great all the time, even the most thickest must realise that.

    Yet once again when we have a dip in form, the manager has to go, he has had good times, given us another European trip which was better than we've done in years, yet the first dip in form he's crap and has to go.

    Lennon has earnt the right to address these problems.

    I expect to finish top 5 every season in line with our budget & support. Higher is good, lower is not.

    I donít expect relegation battles every other season, that shows some real ineptitude behind the scenes.

    Iíve been going to Easter Road for 40+ years and cannot remember any time that we consistently finished top 5 for more than 3 seasons. I know the stratos will correct me but that is what it feels like.

    What an intellectually superior poster you are to all of us with a differing opinion.

    Lennon hasn't earned the right to more funds in January after 1 good window in 5. 3 or 4 games is a "dip" not 7. It's not unreasonable to expect us to be beating st.johnstone (who we haven't beat under lennon), Dundee and st.mirren at home. It's not unreasonable to think the manager threatening to leave every 30 seconds is a real lack of respect to the support and calling the players rejects (which we haven't won since that comment) is a real lack of respect of his players. Why do you think no one can ever ever say anything negative about Lennon?

    Take out the cup win and a decent season last year, your left with complete dross. My opinion is I'd rather it changed up top and not keep hiring and firing managers.
    So in other words you're criticising the poster's point about the last few seasons being good by saying if you take the good bits out they weren't actually good?

    Genius argument.

    On this occasion I donít think itís just about results.

    Itís a combination of the results, previously threatening to quit a couple of times after matches (Iím talking about the derbies, not the rumoured one after the st Johnstone game), the refusal to do media duties and the observation that the team appear to have completely lost it on the park at an alarming rate.

    If it was just a poor run of form but there was still a feeling of normality about the place I would be far more inclined to give him longer, I personally feel itís inevitable heíll be away soon so Iíd rather it was just dealt with sooner rather than later.

    I think anything lower than 5th place is a failure, but im not daft enough to understand sometimes there are reasons why we might finish lower.

    I dont have to like it, and i still think the manager can get us there THIS season, although he will need to bring in a couple of decent signings in January.

    I think the general consensus is that your in the minority with regards to getting rid of lennon. So your going to take offence to just about every post.

    What dipsh*ts sometimes support Hibs. Dingals on Saturday moaning about nonsense. In the 70s they moaned plenty, aw the auld boys, but it made a bit ae sense. Now, the moaners & their targets, itís jist a load ae uneducated drivel. Some 1/4 wits in Hibs support nowadays.

    The transfer window success is totally subjective due to the differing opinions we can all have on the ability of any player. What is not subjective are results and final league placings.

    Job 1: Ge tout First Division
    Job 2: Establish the club in SPL again
    Job 3 More of the same.

    He did very well last season to have us pushing for 2nd right up to the last week or so. Am I disappointed we will have to really now step up to achieve something similar absolutely I am, but 100% NL has got plenty in the locker to be allowed a bad run like we have had. In NL he is capable of turning it around the last 3 or 4 managers were not.
    If I choose to revert back to Carlsberg it will have to be The Carlsberg

    This one does my head in too.

    Once in the media he said something daft after losing out on 2nd spot and then echoed it when he was targetted for abuse that included a wall being spray painted calling for him to be hung and having a coin chucked at him.

    Alan Stubbs turned round his bad run to win the Scottish Cup. Unrelated point to NL by the way, just think itís doing Stubbs a dis-service.

    Sorry correct I did not mean to include Stubbs in that I was thinking on the Calderwoods, Butcher and Fenlon.

    Realistically i dont know how people can moan. Yes, it was poor run but its not even halfway through the season and with a couple of good results going our way, we could easily be 3/4th again.

    We have no right to finish above Aberdeen and Hearts. Celtic Rangers should always be pushing for 1-2 and Aberdeen, Jumbos and us are going to be battling it out for the 3rd-4th euro spots.

    This i expect will be whats happening come the end of the season.

    Once in a while a killie or St Johnstone have a flirt with the top half and when they do they should be applauded and we should not deride our own club.

    'Dingals'

    I haven't heard that s since I was about seven in the playground 'Ya dingal' followed by a boot up the arse. Happy times.

    Hope you are right that it 'was' a poor run - I'm not convinced it is over
