    Social media has made it a chuffing nightmare, I sometimes wish this board was never created!
    10/10
    remember the days when the arguments/discussions were held in a pub or club snd forgotten about
    Some of the criticism/ rhetoric psted now is just plaiun sad
    went to my first game , aged eight, in1940 and have been involved in the roller coaster ride of my life but have enjoyed the experience
    " Less crap/abuse and more support please " as Tommy Preston used t say to me

    It will be disappointing but not a disaster.
    Hibs are having to deal with a situation (regardless of how you think that came about), the next step is to get a good appointment and get things back on track.

    Money wise, Killie & Saints do top 6 on much less. We need to get this right. We've had 2 great years, I was a huge critic of the board when we sold every asset we had in the 2000's.

    We will still sell our best but how that money is used is where we've let ourselves down, albeit I believe temporarily.

    If this spills into next week then I will be concerned also. But going back to the OP I agree that some of the terminology used on here is hysterical rather than measured disquiet.
    I think what concerns me is that most fans I speak are all just saying “typical Hibs, back to normal”. I was hoping the new regime had moved us on from that but if supporters are thinking ‘here we go again’ it will be very difficult to get any non renewers to trust the board again. If you’re like me you’ll have watched years of utter garbage with low attendances. We have to build on what we’ve achieved over the last few seasons and not throw it all away so quickly. Fingers crossed.

    I think this is a concern, and possibly what sets us apart from some other clubs. Hibs fans are cynical towards the club, due to being let down, many times over, on the field. Other clubs like hearts and rangers can just put out some BS statement that their fans just lap up and run with, regardless of how true it sounds. In my opinion, that's not an option for hibs as everything is disected, looking for the hidden messages and trying to read between the lines.

    I have to say I utterly despair of the amount of undeserved criticism being flung at the club right now, mostly by people who actually claim to be Hibs supporters. Since our relegation and the appointment of Dempsey, we have had some of the most positive, progressive leadership the club has had in decades. We have been promoted, we have won the cup, we have amassed a record points total, we have attracted record season ticket sales. The turnaround has been amazing......but guess what, we’ve hit a blip, our team has been underperforming for a few months and we have lost a manager. Time to circle the wagons, rally round the club and support the staff who have brought about our turn in fortunes ? Not in 2019 it would seem. Instead we get post after post from myopic “customers” ( I won’t call them supporters, because they mind spend money buying tickets, but that doesn’t make you a supporter) desperate to regurgitate any west coast bias rubbish spouted by the red tops and slag off our club. Quite frankly it’s pathetic, puerile and spineless.

    stop moaning, show some loyalty and let’s put some trust in our club.
    I must be the opposite to the above as I'm really looking forward to the new manger coming in, fresh ideas, new outlook etc etc

    It's football. Its life. It happens to most clubs.

    It's great to be a Hibee! 😁

    The very thing the poster has called juvenile they have did,a thread about creating harmony yet flings the Jambo's card at opinions,dont see a problem in highlighting that,can only improve the board.

    Agree, I just think we've got things mostly right in the last 2-3 years. I'm gonna give it a bit longer before I think we on a slope backwards long term. And yeah I've seen pretty much what you have. Hopefully some good news soon.

    But a justifiable analogy none the less. Not sure where 'mental' fits in though?

    I remember visiting America in the early 80's and coming across "instant grat" for the first time and thinking it was crazy. This has now permeated all walks of life, even football clubs and their fans. You can't flick a switch with a football team and how it's being run so some patience is called for. 50 years plus of watching Hibs teaches you a lot of things and I think we are finally on the right track with this board. Are they perfect? Far from it, but I'll reserve judgement till the summer before making my mind up.

    I have to say as an outsider, I'm shocked at the amount of nonsense written on net lately. Just support the team, noone knows what will happen? It was just 2 years ago we did the unthinkable... I love Hibs.

    Here. here.


    I recently started a thread encouraging people to get behind the club in their hour of need, attend games when they can and cheer the team on to help them through a difficult time... but the thread was polluted with people either criticizing the club or saying how disgraceful it was for me to tell them to do their bit, and did I know how much money they'd spent doing that already.

    Sadly, some people are just negative, moaning gits and there's not a lot you can do about that.

    What do you want them to say? "We're still talking to candidates"? We now that.



    Decimated by injury, square pegs in round holes and not the best circumstances to integrate the new arrivals.


    So the team isn't good enough.

    For me its been a downturn in results and not much more - which can happen.
    Elements of a good squad, good players who have proved this but not performing to their max, and we have slid down the table.

    Not a toxic dressing room where players arent' good enough/ are ageing and need emptied, ST sales are dropping like a stone, we'll be in a battle for the play-offs next season type scenario are some people want to suggest.

    Maybe the impact of not getting results has been magnified after a 3 year period in the championship used to winning more often than not, followed by the same last year.

    Not accepting mediocrity by any means but we will go again. Stick with the club

    Sorry are you some sort of superfan that’s telling us myopic customers to be quiet, pay your money and say nothing.

    the club has worked hard to get back the lost fans and they need to keep them.

    All I want is my team to be consistently in the top end of the league and challenge in cups.

    With the biggest budget in history I don’t think that’s unreasonable and whilst we are struggling to make the top 6 is it not unreasonable for us customers to ask questions.??

    This....

    I have to say some Hibs fans can be so fickle at times it's embarrassing. Folk screaming Lennon out for most of the season then spitting blood when he got suspended. Absolutely slating the club over these manager talks when absolutely nobody outside actually knows what's gone on. I would have preferred Appleton but the deal is dead and it looks like Heckingbottom is the man. I hate his name and the yams will have a field day but if that's all they can dig up about the guy then happy days. Lets face it anyone after Lenny is going to be underwhelming. Let's back the team and try and aim for the top 6 before rebuilding in the summer

    I see Hibs have a game this Saturday. Time to remember that no matter what your opinion is over the Lennon departure and what part the board did or didn't play in it, the idea is that we all support Hibernian football club, not Neil Lennon and not Leeann Dempster.

    Anybody who decides to give Easter Road a miss this weekend because of this and because we are having a bit of a struggle on the field at the moment has my utmost disdain …. man / woman up FFS.
