Ewan Murray is at it again. Trying to deflect attention from the downward spiral of his beloved but cheating Jams he says on Twitter tonight "Hibs are also now easily the most physical team in the league, in my view. Good or bad, open to debate.. But manager's strategy is clear." WTF

Now that coming from a supporter of a team that employs Ryan Stevenson and Hamill. And in recent years had Black, Kyle etc. Had the SFA fining them from their disciplinary record on a number of occasions. It is common knowledge that the Yams intimidate teams and have done for years.

Now he says WE are physical. Well bring it on - for too long we have been too soft and rolled over too easily. We are certainly tougher but never let it be said that we are a dirty side. We will leave that to others!

I want us to be exactly that, **** anyone else who can't deal with it and don't like it. We need this attitude and let no one walk all over us

Ignore them, dirty, cheating poppy-stealing trash. They have dished it out for years but now that we are standing up for ourselves, physically without clogging, they don't like it. Well stuff 'em I say.

So what! The physical side of the game is what Hibs have been missing for a long time. You have to win the physical battle first to allow you to play a bit. Bring it on and get stuck in I say. Let us embrace it and not give these clowns something else to kick us with. :fenlon

Ewan Murray is a grade A jamboid roaster.
His team are woeful and he's looking for a reaction and something to talk about cos his team are utterly woeful.

We have a team that can mix it and show a bit of skill when needed. Nowt wrong with that IMHO.

I'd rather we got stuck in than be totally over run game after game.

Nice try Ewan but GTGYYF

Cannot believe any Hibbie would even consider following or reading anything this mouthpiece puts on Twitter. Watching paint dry or scratching your backside would be massively more enlightening. Ignore him that will hurt this publicity junkie even more. Ewen Murray:taxi. I wonder if Ewan Murray sleeps at night if he does he must find it difficult.

I think its hilarious that this supposedly hard, physical, bullying Hibs team earned a whopping total of 2 yellow cards today.


Meanwhile a couple of weeks ago Celtic's captain was sent off for first scything down, then kicking a player on the ground. He now has a 3 game ban handed out to him and yet Lennon has the nerve to criticise us and all the talk in the media after the game was blaming Neymar for overreacting.

The fact that folk like Lennon and Murray are mentioning this probably tells you we're doing something right.

As long as we're controlled in our aggression and not say getting out captain sent off half way through our biggest game of the season, then I see nothing wrong with his approach.

Now lets adopt it for every game this season, no matter the opposition.

Correct. We have been soft as ***** for years and it is "pleasing" to hear others complain about us for a wee change, rather than us getting our erses handed to us.

portohibee
19-10-2013, 07:21 PM
if thats peoples perception of us then magic, as others say, been too soft too long

Seems Lennon clearly thinks so,

Neil Lennon hit out at Hibernian following Celtic's 1-1 draw at Easter Road, describing some of their tackling as "shocking" and "reckless".

Hibs striker Paul Heffernan opened the scoring in the 17th minute before Hoops substitute James Forrest levelled with a wonderful solo goal with 15 minutes remaining.

Only two Hibs players, Liam Craig and Ryan McGivern, were booked but Lennon was furious when asked about some of the tackling from Pat Fenlon's men.

He said: "It was shocking - absolutely shocking. Reckless.

"I'm all for competitive football, no one more than myself, but seriously, they were borderline tackles.

"I didn't really say to Pat but I made my feelings pretty clear to the fourth official. I don't think it was any player target in particular, it was across the board.

"We've got a big Champions League game and I'm not asking any favours, I don't mind teams being competitive, and the physicality of the game was good but I felt it was over the top."

"My opinion may be different from Pat's, he'll say he sent his team out to get in our faces and I don't mind that at all, but the ref should take more of a grip on it sometimes."

Lennon also claimed Heffernan's goal was offside, saying: "I haven't looked back at the goal, I didn't need to - you can see he's at least a yard off.

"I'm not here to criticise officials but when it's as blatant as that, you have to ask 'why did you miss that?'

"Our reaction to what was clearly an offside goal was fantastic, though, and the unbeaten run continues."

Fenlon showed no contrition when told of Lennon's criticism.

"Good," he said.

"That means the message is getting across to my players, that we want to go and compete and get in people's faces.

"We worked tremendously hard and we made sure Celtic knew they were in a game and that's what it was about today.

"You've got to be because if you stand off them and let them play then they will tear you apart and we weren't going to (let them) do that.

"I think most of the tackles were fair, I think there was one in the first half that they moaned about but it was a good tackle, it was a real good challenge.

"Everyone has different opinions I suppose."

"I'm all for competitive football, no one more than myself, but seriously, they were borderline tackles."

So by "borderline" Neil, you accept that those tackles were interpreted by the referee viewing it at the time as on the 'fair' side of the borderline?

Example: If a golf ball is "borderline out of bounds" then what you really mean to say that it is "in bounds"

Dipsh*t....

Love that reaction from Pat. :aok::agree:excellent comments from Pat Fenlon.

I said to 2 guys sitting next to me today at the match:good to see us bossing the midfield for a change, to which both agreed. we have lost Derby games that we could have/should have won over the years, mainly because we were steamrollered by bully boy tactics in the mid. some no doubt because of the physical precence, some because of a lack of real fight when reqd. I for one, was delighted to see our guys mixing it today. as for Lennon, he's got a hard neck, dirty wee tosser when he played and his number 5 today got away with murder in the 1st half. imho.

If any hearts supporter thinks this Hibs team is physical, then they had best stay away from the games next season. If they get lucky & simply get relegated,the 1st division IS physical. If justice is to be done then,the 3rd division is even worse! Ask that little thug Black who did nothing but moan about the 'treatment' he received last season:greengrin

It's about time too. Too soft for too long, but that has to be maintained against all our opponents. Win the individual battles, that gets us time on the ball to play the way we want to play. That said, depending on the referee, against The Proud Sons of Gorgie, who, might be taken in, as the poor wee boys are falling all around, mostly play acting, or cheating, to gain an advantage. I hope the referee isn't the type to grab all the headlines, but fear the worse.

Lennon's comments were all about his fears for his wee lambs ahead of a Euro match and little to do with Hibs approach to the game. Yes, Hibs did press and chase down Celtic players but there were VERY FEW bad tackles. In fact i can't remember one that was dangerous or one Celtic player who got treatment (other than Commons who got a hammy).

If Lennon's not happy then we're doing something right :thumbsup:

Too much made of Lennon's comments in the media. Just sour grapes from the graceless thug. In fact, his veiled threat that Celtic will deal with Hibs when we go to Parkhead should be punished. Hibs approach and defending was spot on.

The Herald summed it up well

"The Celtic manager also lambasted the home side for their tackling, but it was harder to see where he was coming from on this, despite a bad, late challenge by Rowan Vine. Hibs adopted a robust, tight marking approach which pleased Pat Fenlon, but hardly merited Lennon's verdict of "absolutely shocking".

It's not only Lennon and Jambo Murray who are bleating. For years the vast majority of pundits and media dwarfs have revelled in laughing and sneering at Hibs as the soft touch of Scottish football, even to the extent of suggesting we have to adopt a more aggressive and physical approach. Now that it appears we are taking their advice and getting something from most of our games, they don't like it. I've never felt guilty of suffering from a persecution complex but there isn't a shadow of doubt in my mind that it's widely fashionable to knock Hibs using any ammunition available. Stuff them!

The last time we played them was the cup final in May and we never got near them. They had the easiest 90 mins given the importance of the game. Lennon was relaxed and smiling then.

5 months later he is raging. His team won't get many more in your face type games than the one we witnessed yesterday. Progress and GIRUY Lennon.

Look at the squad and you will notice the number of " new faces" who were brought in at the start of the season . It can often take time for players to adjust to each others ways and is this the sign of weeks of hard work coming to fruition ?

Seems Lennon clearly thinks so,

Hibs striker Paul Heffernan opened the scoring in the 17th minute before Hoops substitute James Forrest levelled with a wonderful solo goal with 15 minutes remaining.

Only two Hibs players, Liam Craig and Ryan McGivern, were booked but Lennon was furious when asked about some of the tackling from Pat Fenlon's men.

He said: "It was shocking - absolutely shocking. Reckless.

"I'm all for competitive football, no one more than myself, but seriously, they were borderline tackles.

"I didn't really say to Pat but I made my feelings pretty clear to the fourth official. I don't think it was any player target in particular, it was across the board.

"We've got a big Champions League game and I'm not asking any favours, I don't mind teams being competitive, and the physicality of the game was good but I felt it was over the top."

"My opinion may be different from Pat's, he'll say he sent his team out to get in our faces and I don't mind that at all, but the ref should take more of a grip on it sometimes."

Lennon also claimed Heffernan's goal was offside, saying: "I haven't looked back at the goal, I didn't need to - you can see he's at least a yard off.

"I'm not here to criticise officials but when it's as blatant as that, you have to ask 'why did you miss that?'

"Our reaction to what was clearly an offside goal was fantastic, though, and the unbeaten run continues."

Fenlon showed no contrition when told of Lennon's criticism.

"Good," he said.

"That means the message is getting across to my players, that we want to go and compete and get in people's faces.

"We worked tremendously hard and we made sure Celtic knew they were in a game and that's what it was about today.

"You've got to be because if you stand off them and let them play then they will tear you apart and we weren't going to (let them) do that.

"I think most of the tackles were fair, I think there was one in the first half that they moaned about but it was a good tackle, it was a real good challenge.

"Everyone has different opinions I suppose."

This will be the same Neil Lennon that was one of the nastiest players ever to grace a football park and of course we mustn't forget his mucker Alan Thomson who once put a young Scott Brown out the game for a couple of months for winding him up. Over the years Celtic have never failed to dish it out when they need to , usually helped by weak refereeing ,and I have to say that one of the worst tackles I have ever seen was committed by Celtic "legend" Yogi Hughes and it practically finished Bobby Duncan's career.
Grow up Lennon!

I was out last night with a tic fan who watched it on TV and said nothing about our tactics/tackles.

What if a Hibs player gets hurt in that game?

But WGS can get a team turned around in a matter of weeks, if the manager of a national team can do it there's no reason a club manager can't do it. After all both have the same quality and amount of resources to utilize! :wink:

Yeah and Fenlon had us around the top of the league for a spell last year.

We are on a run of what one loss in nine?

if thats peoples perception of us then magic, as others say, been too soft too long

Seems Lennon clearly thinks so,

Neil Lennon hit out at Hibernian following Celtic's 1-1 draw at Easter Road, describing some of their tackling as "shocking" and "reckless".

Hibs striker Paul Heffernan opened the scoring in the 17th minute before Hoops substitute James Forrest levelled with a wonderful solo goal with 15 minutes remaining.

Only two Hibs players, Liam Craig and Ryan McGivern, were booked but Lennon was furious when asked about some of the tackling from Pat Fenlon's men.

He said: "It was shocking - absolutely shocking. Reckless.

"I'm all for competitive football, no one more than myself, but seriously, they were borderline tackles.

"I didn't really say to Pat but I made my feelings pretty clear to the fourth official. I don't think it was any player target in particular, it was across the board.

"We've got a big Champions League game and I'm not asking any favours, I don't mind teams being competitive, and the physicality of the game was good but I felt it was over the top."

"My opinion may be different from Pat's, he'll say he sent his team out to get in our faces and I don't mind that at all, but the ref should take more of a grip on it sometimes."

Lennon also claimed Heffernan's goal was offside, saying: "I haven't looked back at the goal, I didn't need to - you can see he's at least a yard off.

"I'm not here to criticise officials but when it's as blatant as that, you have to ask 'why did you miss that?'

"Our reaction to what was clearly an offside goal was fantastic, though, and the unbeaten run continues."

Fenlon showed no contrition when told of Lennon's criticism.

"Good," he said.

"That means the message is getting across to my players, that we want to go and compete and get in people's faces.

"We worked tremendously hard and we made sure Celtic knew they were in a game and that's what it was about today.

"You've got to be because if you stand off them and let them play then they will tear you apart and we weren't going to (let them) do that.

"I think most of the tackles were fair, I think there was one in the first half that they moaned about but it was a good tackle, it was a real good challenge.

"Everyone has different opinions I suppose."Good stuff Pat, **** off lennon

A lot of credit will be held back until after the cup game against Hearts.

Rightly or wrongly, if we lose that one, Fenlon will be under pressure big style. Anything can happen in a cup game of course but for this one I have a feeling that the Hibernian family EXPECTS a result.

After yesterdays performance it is a blow that Nelson may be out and we can't use Heff. A win, and Fenlon will be acclaimed as turning us around but if the worst happens the last nine games will be swiftly forgotten and we will be back to regular mentions of the two cup finals, this season's first derby and the Malmo disaster.

Well he says in his tweet, "Maybe. Find out for certain tomorrow."

So whoever told you his cheekbone's broken obviously knows more than the big guy himself.

Or maybe he's just spouting horse-feathers. :rolleyes:


Lennon's whinge is just par for the course - managers of "big" teams always complain when "wee" teams get a result against them, and a favourite line has always been that the opposition were "allowed" by the referee to "kick my players off the park". Jock Stein was particularly partial to this approach - ironic when you consider what a cultured and skillful defender he was(n't) in his own playing days.

I would also say that in nearly 50 years I have rarely seen a player deliberately go in with the intention of injuring a fellow-professional; the two cases which spring my mind have already been mentioned here - Hughes' disgraceful assault on Bobby Duncan which ended Bobby's very promising career (that was under Stein), and Alan Thompson's foul on Scott Brown - deliberate and vindictive - in a match Lennon himself played in. Note that both these cases involve Celtic players.

And come to think of it, wasn't Bobo Balde sent off for punching Scott Brown when Brown was at his annoying best in Hibs' colours? And Scottie only half his size (if that).

McGivern's tackle might have been penalised as reckless under present interpretations of the rules, but the present interpretations of the rules are fast reducing what used to be a man's game to a non-contact sport suitable for elderly ladies and invalids. Ryan took the ball cleanly, and the Celtic player fell over and then went into simulation-mode, abruptly desisting when he realised the referee wasn't looking at him.

Back in the day, if you got the ball squarely, it was a fair tackle, and while tackling from behind and tackling over the ball needed sorting, some of the challenges we see players carded for nowadays would have been considered perfectly acceptable tackles 10 years ago.

It's good to see the Hibs midfield mixing it with the opposition, but we need to bear in mind that Hibs players won't get away with the same sort of challenges as Celtic players from some referees; ditto in regard to Jambos and Craig Thomson. We don't want to end up with a string of red cards.

We still lack pace from midfield; Zoubir wasn't at his best yesterday IMO (not that I'm knocking him - he's been a decided asset to the team so far this season), and maybe we'll only get on top of that problem when Alex Harris returns.

Lennon upset by a more riobust approach in midfield? Threatening reprisals? Got a few bumps and bruises to sort out prior to Tuesday evening?

I don't know about the Styles one, but I DO know about Bertie nutting Norman Hunter in the European Cup semi at Hampden.

In the tunnel just before the game, Hunter told George Connelly (the scorer of the only goal in the first leg) that if Connelly even looked at the ball he (hunter) was going to break his (Connelly's) legs.

Not realising that the wee dark-haired guy in front of GC was none other than Bertie Auld.

DLU scored the opening goal and were pressing for another. Hunter was DLU's last man back, and Lennox (the sped merchant) was up with him. Bertie changed places with Lennox, and when no one was looking simply walked up to Hunter and nutted him.

Rumour has it that Hunter played the rest of the match with concussion.

Hunter has always claimed that this didn't happen, but I had two close friends whose word I trust who were at the match and took their solemn oath they saw it.

And anyway - what would Hunter know about it? Serious amnesia's only one drawback of receiving a Glasgow kiss. (Having one's good looks spoiled is another, but that didn't count as far as Hunter was concerned - he always did look like a rhino's backside.

I'd like to think Bertie got Styles as well. That would make him a true legend.

And before anyone says anything - nobbling Hibs players with malice aforethought is one thing. Dealing out just and well-merited retribution to thugs like Hunter and Styles something entirely other.

Clearly, the Celtc player (cannae make out who it is) expected Hibs to allow him to make a simple side-footed pass. It looks like he didn`t expect to actually be challenged. I never knew that teams were supposed to allow the Soap dodgers to pass the ball around for fun.

Bertie definitely did Styles in a "friendly" at ER vs Middlesboro in about 1970. There was a lot of noise from Styles in build up & he put himself about early doors. After about 20 mins the bold Bertie decided enough was enough, enticed Styles into a challenge, pulled back then went straight down on his shin, Styles carried off. I remember nothing about the game but that incident still lives with me. IIRC the great John Fairgrieve, though a Yam, wrote about it in a book which came out in the 70's.

As a player Lennon specialised in snide off the ball fouls when the officials weren't looking. He liked to dish it out, but went moaning to the ref as soon as anyone gave him the same treatment. He's whining, bitter and classless and thinks the world owes him and his club a living. This nasty piece of work epitomises everything that's meant by the phrase Celtic-minded.

I've heard from people who've met him away from his Celtic role that he can be quite different. I suppose he could just be getting dragged down by his environment. Perhaps he should leave and do something useful with his life.

NAE NOOKIE
20-10-2013, 04:44 PM
Lennon really is a greetin' faced wee scrote.

Perhaps he has forgotten his cowardly attack on ( I think it was Barry Lavety ) in one game at ER. Lavety had given him a hard time down in the celtic box and Lennon waited for the ball to be cleared and then when he thought none of the officials were looking he booted Lavety on the knee.

As far as I could see yesterday Hibs were hard but fair, apart from the odd foul or mistimed tackle which happens in every game. At least none of our 'tackles' happened when the ball was 50 yards away when the celtic player was'nt looking.

I dont really blame Lennon 100% for his outburst though. I remember Gordon Strachan turning from a highly witty manager to a whinging wee baw bag when he managed sellik ... back to being amusing without being a tit now.

Scott Brown is another one .... when he was at Hibs he could dish it out, but he could take it as well. Now he can still dish it out, but moans like a wee lassie when he gets it back .. witness his outburst against Claros at Hampden for what was in all honestly a bog standard foul that he would have brushed off a few years back.

Nah ... The only way the other clubs in Scotland can level the playing field is by getting into the faces of celtic and stop them from being able to spray the ball about .... more or less the same tactics that celtic will employ agains Ajax on Tuesday night in fact.

What has really annoyed Lennon is that he had to take Kayal off and bring on Ledley(who he was keeping wrapped in cotton wool before the Ajax game)to try and get some control in midfield.

The only players injured and treated on the field were Hibs players-Balde caused the injury to himself and Nelson.

Obviously talking from a much smaller sample, but the only contentious decision I can think of is the goalline clearance against the Huns late in the 2008/09 season. Hibs held on for a draw that looked like it might cost them the league. There was a bit of stushie about it at the time, but I don't think they ever proved conclusively that it had crossed the line. There hasn't been much whining about it since because Celtic also drew against Hibs days later and the Huns won the league.

This will be the same Neil Lennon that was one of the nastiest players ever to grace a football park and of course we mustn't forget his mucker Alan Thomson who once put a young Scott Brown out the game for a couple of months for winding him up. Over the years Celtic have never failed to dish it out when they need to , usually helped by weak refereeing ,and I have to say that one of the worst tackles I have ever seen was committed by Celtic "legend" Yogi Hughes and it practically finished Bobby Duncan's career.
Grow up Lennon!

Exactly the tackle I thought of when reading your post MB. I'm not sure Hughes was even booked for what was the dirtiest tackle I have ever seen.

Just think before you post .... cellik need to be successful or these folk are going to start following local clubs and its clubs like us who will be to blame. Honestly :bitchy:

The Ginger Whinger always finds something to moan about so that attention is distracted from the fact that he couldn't get his expensively assembled team to win a routine league match against a less talented side.

We did what was required to match Septic, and did it very well. Whilst we rode our luck a little, I'd say we got the result our performance deserved because it's not easy to work that hard and concentrate for the full 90 minutes when under constant pressure.

Seems like a textbook example of when someone finally stands up to a bully - and not just in football terms - the bully whines and moans like a big jessie cause they dont like it.

I dont think it would take much research to find much, much worse challenges from Lennon as a player to what we saw on Saturday from both sides.

Well done Hibs for standing up for themselves on the pitch :agree:

Exactly the tackle I thought of when reading your post MB. I'm not sure Hughes was even booked for what was the dirtiest tackle I have ever seen.


He was not.

And IIRC Stein only subbed him after one of our guys got him in a really meaty challenge (even for those days) and it became somewhat more than apparent that Hughes would be lucky to walk off at half-time.

(If he'd never walked again it would have been too soon for me.)

As you say, John - the dirtiest physical assault I ever saw on a football field. (A tackle it was not.)

Going back a bit, but when Scotland played England at Hampden in a Euro qualifier and British Championship match in 1968 (the game after 3-2 at Wenbley), he was given the place that should have gone to an on fire Peter Cormack and the 1-1 draw put England through. Mind, Hughes did score iirc!

Bertie definitely did Styles in a "friendly" at ER vs Middlesboro in about 1970. There was a lot of noise from Styles in build up & he put himself about early doors. After about 20 mins the bold Bertie decided enough was enough, enticed Styles into a challenge, pulled back then went straight down on his shin, Styles carried off. I remember nothing about the game but that incident still lives with me. IIRC the great John Fairgrieve, though a Yam, wrote about it in a book which came out in the 70's.

It was Nobby Stiles not Styles. He was very similar to Neil Lennon. Very little skill or pace but a hard tackler. Both could dish it out but unable to take it.

Remember it well enough [disclaimer stuck in there :greengrin]. It was ET first Hibs home game as the new Hibs manager, pre-season 1971, the whole week's build up wasn't about Hibs & Boro, it was about Auld & Stiles. Stiles went in high on Auld, who saw it coming and he turned the tables and went in higher and caught Stiles, who got a rapturous reception as he was carried off. I'm sure the game ended nil nil.

Media already backing Lennon, Headlines in the Sunday papers fair enough but the pictures and captions had meshaking my head. One had McGivern sliding in to a tackle with caption describing it as a "wild lunge " and another had a pic of him after clearing the ball with his foot high with Commons close beside him, with a pic of Commons

Looks like one of Lennon's players didn't get the memo:


[Lennon] described some of the Edinburgh side's tackling as "shocking" and "reckless" , but [Virgil] Van Dijk said: "No, I didn't think it was too physical.

"Some of the challenges definitely were tough, but we played a very good game.

"We created a lot of chances and we should have scored two or three, but we didn't lose, so that was good."

"It's quite sad that it takes someone like Neil Lennon to make a comment for the media to sit up and take notice of Hibs and their thuggish ways. Even die hard Hibs fan Pat Nevin was shocked at their antics in the first derby of the season. Nothing but cloggers. Soon to be found out after riding their luck the last couple of games.

Hopefully now referees will take note of these brutes. I haven't seen so many bad tackles Kujabi viciously assaulted Suso on 19.05.12"

Half of them got the ball, the others were just usual collisions. Only the McGivern one was a bit naughty but he was more caught out than anyhting else. No corresponding challenges shown by Celtic players.

If people don't know the difference between a tough team and a dirty team that's their problem. I suspect they do though but agendas take over and the tag suits them.

Well he says in his tweet, "Maybe. Find out for certain tomorrow."

So whoever told you his cheekbone's broken obviously knows more than the big guy himself.

Or maybe he's just spouting horse-feathers. :rolleyes:


Lennon's whinge is just par for the course - managers of "big" teams always complain when "wee" teams get a result against them, and a favourite line has always been that the opposition were "allowed" by the referee to "kick my players off the park". Jock Stein was particularly partial to this approach - ironic when you consider what a cultured and skillful defender he was(n't) in his own playing days.

I would also say that in nearly 50 years I have rarely seen a player deliberately go in with the intention of injuring a fellow-professional; the two cases which spring my mind have already been mentioned here - Hughes' disgraceful assault on Bobby Duncan which ended Bobby's very promising career (that was under Stein), and Alan Thompson's foul on Scott Brown - deliberate and vindictive - in a match Lennon himself played in. Note that both these cases involve Celtic players.

And come to think of it, wasn't Bobo Balde sent off for punching Scott Brown when Brown was at his annoying best in Hibs' colours? And Scottie only half his size (if that).

McGivern's tackle might have been penalised as reckless under present interpretations of the rules, but the present interpretations of the rules are fast reducing what used to be a man's game to a non-contact sport suitable for elderly ladies and invalids. Ryan took the ball cleanly, and the Celtic player fell over and then went into simulation-mode, abruptly desisting when he realised the referee wasn't looking at him.

Back in the day, if you got the ball squarely, it was a fair tackle, and while tackling from behind and tackling over the ball needed sorting, some of the challenges we see players carded for nowadays would have been considered perfectly acceptable tackles 10 years ago.

It's good to see the Hibs midfield mixing it with the opposition, but we need to bear in mind that Hibs players won't get away with the same sort of challenges as Celtic players from some referees; ditto in regard to Jambos and Craig Thomson. We don't want to end up with a string of red cards.

We still lack pace from midfield; Zoubir wasn't at his best yesterday IMO (not that I'm knocking him - he's been a decided asset to the team so far this season), and maybe we'll only get on top of that problem when Alex Harris returns.

Lennon upset by a more riobust approach in midfield? Threatening reprisals? Got a few bumps and bruises to sort out prior to Tuesday evening?

GOOD. :pfgwa

Ewan Murray's chat on twitter this morning re. Rowan Vine seems to be embarrassing even some Hearts fans. Not an easy thing to do.

@mrewanmurray: Ten days on and still absolutely zilch from the compliance officer on Rowan Vine's comments. Pretty pathetic.

@mrewanmurray: @marksnell6 meanwhile he is free to play, potentially knock teams out of cups etc. What is and isn't fast-tracked merely another system flaw

Someone should point out to him that the compliance officer deals with on-field incidents, not comments on Twitter. Things like a deliberate forearm smash into an opponent's head in the opening stages of a cup final that went unpunished.

Sports journalists are supposed to know these things.

CG I've got one to bite but he's a total spangle in about them making profits etc year end 2012 blah blah wait one and I'll get back to you.


Here is his response


@Jdeans17347Hot: @Aldo1875 @mrewanmurray change the record... You forget hibs in the early 90's? You forget Wallace mercer bailing you's out?

@Jdeans17347Hot: @Aldo1875 @mrewanmurray I know my clubs problems. Enjoy your victory tonight. Sure you're fourth derby victory since 09 will be amazing.

Doesn't like his club being called cheats or thieves

He is a proper hurting yam. Slagging the BBC coverage of the game now (none of the pre match pressers online), so i tweeted him the 'Hibernian' page from his own newspaper.

@Aldo1875: @Jdeans17347Hot @mrewanmurray enjoy the championship no hopefully liquidation. Mind cheats never prosper.., proving to be the case is it not

One thing that bugs me in particular about Ewan Murray is that he uses the official Guardian avatar on his Twitter account which gives the impression that somehow he is giving the paper's line on all things Yam and anti-Hibs.
