Personally I agree with you but I haven't been back for ages due to work commitments, today was the first time in ages I have had a free week but deep down I had a gut feeling things wouldn't go for us today.
If we are going to put someone else in place it has to be now as he will need time before January to decide how he is going to sort this defence out.
Definately not going back until Calderwood goes I have had enough. :boo hoo:

I left at half time during the Motherwell game and haven't been back, I'm a season ticket holder so the club have already got my money for this year. My loss, however if things don't change I change, the club wont only lose out on the walk up fans net year, the season ticket holders will not be re-newing.

With the recent losses posted and going by the responses I have got when email the club the board must have some serious concerns.

AGM will be very interesting!

Short term loss for long term gain? Getting 7/8000 all season means we are losing tens of thousands in attendances anyway from what's been budgeted for. The big question is whether people boycotting will actually lead to action...

I have voted with my feet since the last we played at home to Hamilton last season. Since that I've been slated and seen posts slating people like me since it's happened. As one posters says, 'lets bankrupt the club we love by staying away?'. I disagree with that, whilst it's each individuals choice to protest the way they see fit. Going every week or not going every week the board have made it abundently clear they don't give a **** about the fans. Whilst he had longer at the helm, in my opinion, Yogi done less wrong than CC and was sacked, which I believe was the right decision. So what is going to make the board take that decision with CC? In my opinion not going. So I haven't been and won't be back until he's gone. I feel sad for that and I miss Hibs but it's too far down the road now and if I went back that last few months have been pointless.

I just hope it changes for the better soon, whether that's with or without CC.

Bankrupt?

Its clear that clubs in Scotland are aloud to get £**,***,*** in debt and nothing will happen to them. So I wouldn't worry about us going bankrupt.

Besides, the only people that would cause the club to go bankrupt are the board. And losses have already begun.

Berating the supporters that PATG for saying that they have doubts about going is pointless. The support is falling away in thousands, not just the odd punter hear and there. In the run up to the festive period where pennies are harder to find, emotional blackmail is not just not the answer, it is no answer at all.

But by turning up, you pretty much are accepting it.

The hibs board works on balance sheets. They don't care if Hibs don't get results on the field, as long as they see results on the balance sheets.

I say, hit them hard and force them to act. Otherwise its just going to be the same old cycle thats been doing the rounds for the last several years.

Its not as if we're having the odd bad day though. :rolleyes:

The fans aren't booing the club itself, they're booing the men in charge of making things work. And they've had plenty of time to do that.

Must admit, I am very uncomfortable with the boo thing. Way I see it, most footballers are not blessed with very much brain--I would rather be a footballer than have a brain by the way in case you are thinking I am one of our many intellectual snobs on here who don't understand normal folk much, and so the effect of the boos, understandable as they are, is to plunge the players into more nervous cluelessness, when actually they are good at training etc. However, the job of a manager is to make them ignore this type of thing and play as they can. Trouble is Mr Calderwood cannot do this as he is like them, he gets stumbly, bumbley when it doesn't go well. A nice chap I have no doubt, but not a leader, not the grumper that you need to sort the boys. If he can't do it, how can they? Happens in any workplace.

Thats the way I see it, my £400 is wasted already whether I go or not. Walked out of the Motherwell game because I was bored, I had zero interest in staying to watch the rest of the game.

Last Wednesday night I watched the Man City v Wolves game instead of our league cup game and today I was golfing. The way I look at it my £400 quid would have been even more wasted if i'd been at these games and seen what was on offer.

Can't disagree. In fact I think I'd go a little further and say that my enjoyment ( what little there is at present) would be vastly increased if some of our most obnoxious fans would make good on their repeated promises to stay away.

I'm more than sympathetic to the unhappiness at the way the team have been/are/will play but the level of abuse and vitriol which pours out of the stands is out of all proportion. Even if you believe that the players are poor and the team mismanaged we can't get new players until January even if we could afford it.

Relentless negativity has to a be, at the very least, a contributory factor to the poor home form and both the team and the fans would be much, much better off if more people could find it in their soul to offer support and understanding instead of abuse. Who knows, we might even see a few victories.

I simply don't believe that the owner or the board don't care about results. In fact it's a silly thing to say. If it were true it would mean they didn't really care about the balance sheet at all. As it happens I would be horrified if I found out that the board planned to run the club in a way which put its long term existence under threat. They have a responsibility to ensure that club is well run and to try and ensure that it fulfills its potential. If they fulfill this duty then the balance sheet should look after itself.

The way i see it is that we have seen poor managers in the past,Miller for example,and there were times we walked out of Easter Road saying we were not going to go back and watch that crap,but we always returned the following week because we had players like Goram,O Neil,Jackson,crunchie etc who we knew could put in exciting performances and could turn a game. Do we have that now?we have sub standard players coached by a manager who looks like he has no plan "b" to fall back on if things start running away from the team.The loyalty from the fans has gone because we know that the players we have at our disposal cannot turn a game and the heads go down as soon as we fall behind.Look at us and Motherwell.....they have smaller fanbase(though that gap is closing on a weekly basis) they get a manager in who looks at the players he has,sees what they can bring to the team,and plays them in the best position for the team.We have CC who looks at players he brought in and ones he had already..........and sees nothing.On paper we have a good team....Stack is best keeper we have had in a while,O Connor is quality,Osbourne dominated last week.Imaging if someone like Mccall had a chance to mould that side?we would not be world beaters,but we would not be one point off bottom of league with one win since January.

A good manager knows the direction he wants team to take and can get the best out of the players at his disposal,a bad manager hopes for the best and tries quantity over quality.Unfortunately I think Colin falls into second catagory.

My time is spent doing something I enjoy on Saturdays and itís not watching Hibs- I decided some time ago to look after my health and get my stress level back on track.

People running Hibs couldnít give a toss what happens to the club so why should Ií boycotts protests AGMs weíve had them all and nothing has changed and Tuesday will be no different.

I will go back to Football when Petrie and Calderwood are gone and the product of the pitch is worth watching and not before.

Thatís my stance

Hibs are a major point in my life, at the lowest times in my life Hibs have always been there for me, I forget all my worries when Im watching them. Should I stop going because the present lot are not up to the standard i want ? NEVER.
I am a Hibs fan I don't have the answers to our problems, My honest opinion is that I do not think the manager is the man for the job, but he is the manager so I will always support him and his squad. I will never boo Hibs or insult our players. I know many of you will think I am sad for this attitude or name call such as happy clapper etc, but I just love my club.
The opposition fans will always jeer boo and name call our players to put them off their game, Never ask me to do that
