Jimmy Calderwood on Sportsound just now throwing his hat in for the job. Thinks he is exactly what we need at the moment but he fully expects Michael O'Neill to get the gig.

No thanks. Nice enough guy and a decent SPL manager, but he'll bore the living *hit out of us. We need to get somebody in who is a) going to get us excited (sorry CC) b) isn't an erse (sorry Yogi) and understands human nature enough to know that he can't facilitate cultural change overnight (sorry JC).

It all points to MON, McLeish/Mowbray mark two.

He maybe should have thought about that before he made his veiled accusations about the Hibs board on TV.

He only wants it to keep his tango man complexion. Someone told him there's Sunshine on Leith at every home game.

If he gets the job, I'll be setting up 'Occupy East Mains' until he's removed.

Superb record at Aberdeen. I would be tempted if I was the board to make a 'until the end of the season' appointment and if that's the criteria he fits the profile.

You do realise that the end of season is still 6 months away. Rather we get the right guy in now (unless of course it's going to cost us) and give him time to sort out the playing staff this season in preparation for next. Also gives him the January transfer window to wheel and deal in.

Michael O'Neil or Billy Davies.......:aok:

I don`t think I care anymore, I`ve become so apathetic with Hibs and now disillusioned that some (quite a number ?) of my fellow Hibbies` would want Jim Jefferies as manager honestly makes me almost want to weep in frustration.

Mind you, if I`m feeling so frustrated I hope it means I still do care.

09-11-2011, 08:45 PM
Would hardly set the heart racing but I see no reason why not. Took Dunfermline up, led them to 4th in the league (a position we could only dream of these days) and the cup final. Moved to Aberdeen and turned the worst Aberdeen side in god knows how long into a sustained period of success that peaked with a run in Europe the the old firm would kill for and even kept Killie up to boot.

Michael O'Neil still has my vote but Jimmy Calderwood would be certainly in the running and way ahead of fat jambo Jeffries.

Joe
09-11-2011, 08:46 PM
Also I don't think Jimmy Calderwood, should be be a success, would run of to the championship etc, could we same the same about Michael O'Neil. Just a thought.

I made a case for Jimmy Calderwood last time but the consensus is so against him there's little point going there again.

What I will say is I've heard very few proper reasons against him. Him looking crap in a polyester jacket, having a dodgy tan, having a Rangers connection, having a funny accent etc are not proper reasons.

His SPL record is very good. Built Dunfermilne into a decent side, 4th place finish and a Scottish Cup Final. He left they went downhill. Took a honking Aberdeen side to within 3 goals of pipping Hibs to a 3 rd place finish, never out the top 6 and beyond Christmas in Europe including an away win against Dnipro, remember them? Was charged with keeping Killie in the SPL and succeded and was asked to keep Ross County out the play offs, again he done what was asked of him.

Of course all that makes no difference because people have made up their minds so that's that.

Would not be averse to Jimmy Calderwood at all, but in reference to our last managerial appointment when we built all our hopes on Steve Clarke, I think this latest round of manager-merry-go-round will be viewed the same with the majority rooting for Michael O'Neill with anything other than him being viewed as disappointment on various scales.

Supermac
09-11-2011, 09:19 PM
For the short term we need someone who can get us results no matter how as relegation would be disastrous.

I would not have a problem with Jimmy Calderwood getting the job on a short term contract though I concede that he would probably not be the man to take the club forward in the longer term.

Your kidding, right. He took over temporarily at Kilmarnock with 21 games to go. Wins 5 losses 11 and draws 4. Kept them up with a
0-0 draw with Falkirk last game of the season. He managed to lose six on the bounce (1 cup game) and four on the bounce.

We should never entertain any manager at Easter Road who has lost seven goals to Hearts.

Just about everybody obviously wants Hibs to go forward ar this moment with the appointment of a new manager coming up

But why oh why are people touting ****in FJK and orange puss Calderwood:bitchy:

FFS, is this the level we have aspired to :rolleyes:

I'm speechless at the thought of either of those two in the dugout, fortnately I wouldn't be there, and before all the " support your team at any cost " get on my case

I don't have huge confidence in the Board but I would be astonished if they're even considering any of the tired old faces such as Tango & JJ. What next - Alex Totten or Alex Smith? They used to be quoted every time a job became vacant!
They've set a pattern since Mowbray with going for a younger manager & even though results have not been good, that's probably more down to the individuals selected as opposed to the selection criteria.
I would be very surprised if MON is not our next man.

To put that in perspective, Hughes only lost 105 in 283 games at Falkirk, Mixu lost 29 in 85 as a manager before Hibs and Colin Calderwood lost 77 in 290 as a manager before Hibs.

To put it another way again: Jimmy Calderwood had a win % of nearly 42% at Aberdeen. I'm pretty sure this compares well to most other candidates. Only John Collins has a better win percentage as Hibs of recent Hibs managers with 43% but that was over a far shorter time period and we were on a downward spiral when he walked.

I could also point out Calderwood has taken teams to Europe 3 times in the last 7 years, the same as Hibs have managed in just over a decade.
