Seen a lot of supporters going bananas at Malpas about 10 minutes before our goal? What did he do this time?

I don't know what was said to spark it but he called one of the crowd towards him and told him not to swear at him. It was getting a bit heated. I thought his reaction when we scored was brilliant, embraced the same fan. I can't fault him for passion.

Yeah he did not sure what that was about. When we scored he turned towards the guys who had been shouting and did the LG gesture, but I took the intention to be well meant, but not sure if the guy who you are referring to took it differently.

Was all handbags. Shouted boy down words were exchanged and they all had a wee pop pretty much.

Goal goes in MM runs to the same fans in a "get that up yi" but same fan cuddled him and that was it. If Hibs had lost I think this would have been made a big deal.

I sit just 10 rows back 30 seats from the dug outs

Malpas again reacting to a fan shouting and swearing at him malpas turned and said "don't swear at me" in a aggressive manner the same as the fan was using people around shout at Malpas to get on with the game and concentrate on his job. He then gestured to the fan to come down to the dug out a wee exchange took place. IMO Malpas should not be getting involved in this but the fan as we have discussed in other threads should not be shouting personal abuse.

The goal we all went bananas TBF Malaps though gave the fans the GIRFUY sign the fan and Malpas hugged and laughed a bit ,some other guys where not happy and challenge Malpas to a fight WHY I DONT KNOW !!!!!

But i do feel that the management team should not react in this manner getting beat or not.

In fairness, Malpas seemed to react to the fact one fan shouted "Malpas, looks like you cannae be bothered!". I might be a bit demented but I actually think Malpas getting involved is a good thing because it showed he did care. If he had just stood staring at the pitch would we all have thought he cared? No, this way he looked like a bit of an idiot but at least an idiot who gives a toss...

In my mind, both Terry and Maurice are hurting because they're probably working even harder at Hibs than they did at ICT but as can be seen, there are more than a handful of players that aren't good enough. Also, while I accept Maurice probably isn't a likeable guy - I also, like him, don't understand shouting at him - usually you hurl abuse at the manager more than the assistant...

I want to see more passion, I actually think because there was some anger in the West Stand, there was some reaction from the players and we got the draw we deserved (at the very least). Good on Maurice and the fan that reacted decently, I'd much rather see this type of thing than have someone in the management team like Calderwood - guy who didn't care one bit.

He said you don't know what you are [email protected] talking about and don't [email protected] swear at me

What confuses me most is that I never see a player make eye contact or listen to what Malpas or Butcher shout ??? Bizarre

Mentally weak that's why. I'm more than happy to have another management team that has a strong mentality. Collins was strong and our players got him kicked out - "six pack" rubbish etc. This is one of the reasons why we are struggling so much at the moment. Players are too weak mentally, and obviously haven't liked being told they aren't good enough.

The boys behind the dugout were giving Butcher and Malpas serious dogs abuse. Malpas was told that he was a Jeffers by one of them and Malpas confronted them. One of the guys went down nose to nose and all Malpas said was don't swear at me. I know Jeffers I know!!! Anyway the boy obviously thinks he can swear at Malpas and they have a discussion. To be fair to Malpas he didn't react. Anyway goal is scored and Malpas turns round to give him the big GIRUY and the boy goes towards Malpas. He wanted to lamp him but knows thats not a good idea in ER.so they embraced. One of the other guys was still not happy and continued to refer to Malpas as a Jeffers.Passion. Frustration. We were all feeling it. Good shift by the team and unlucky to only get a point. Thought the support for most of the team was good today.

I thought it was quite amusing when MM told the guy not to swear at him, given who it was probably not a great idea by MM to get involved. Like I said earlier I thought MM's reaction when scored was superb, he cares and I want to see that in a management team. Not sure what kicked things off today, TB responded to something said to him first. Passions are running high tho and no surprise frustrations are being shown by both the management team and fans alike.

No worries ! Tbf it was hard to miss + it was going on a minute or so after we scored.

Fwiw if we stay up and start off next season well hopefully all this will be forgotten. As fans we react in different ways but ultimately I believe we all want the same thing, which is to see the team we love doing well.

IMHO MM could become the next Billy Brown figure. For some reason, I just sense he was not keen to join Hibs, doesn't really like the club and is a reluctant employee - loyal only to TB. If the whole thing goes pair shaped, expect him to mouth off about the club etc. Think he's quite a nasty character with chips on both shoulders - could be good for changing the culture at Hibs... or could be destructive.

Do not see what the problem is. If the fan think he is big enough and brave enough to shout abuse at someone then he has to face the consequence's. Yes MM is a representative of the club, but there is only so much abuse he can take before he feels he needs to say something.

Really pleased he celebrated the goal with the fans, it shows that he has been working hard with TB to install the right mind frames for this relegation fight. and that his hard work paid off. good on him

Seemed to all kick off when Robertson was brought off, seemed like a few didn't agree with the substitution.

As has already been said, there was a heated exchange of words with Malpas and a few folk.

Minutes later, we scored and Malpas gives it the big GIRFUY and it kicks off again.

I don't know about anybody else, but I'm loving Malpas more every time I go on here. I always thought of him from his playing days as a steady, reliable boring barsteward, but it seems that the man is a bona fide, off-his-rocker natural entertainer, who at least gives a toss about the club.

If anybody in the west around the dug out wants to swap seats with me in the east, they are more than welcome.

I don't know about anybody else, but I'm loving Malpas more every time I go on here. I always thought of him from his playing days as a steady, reliable boring barsteward, but it seems that the man is a bona fide, off-his-rocker natural entertainer, who at least gives a toss about the club.

If anybody in the west around the dug out wants to swap seats with me in the east, they are more than welcome.

It will take more than a straight swap to secure what has now become the hottest ticket in town. Our post match discussions are far more likely to be about our favourite Malpas moments than anything that has happened on the park. Hopefully the club are encouraging him to keep doing what he is doing. The man is loved in our household.

Maybe I'm missing the point after a few beers but seems like you are having a dig at Jeffers. Malpas behaviour a few weeks back was bad. If we hadn't scored today this malpas / welsh carry on would have been a bigger thing

IMHO MM could become the next Billy Brown figure. For some reason, I just sense he was not keen to join Hibs, doesn't really like the club and is a reluctant employee - loyal only to TB. If the whole thing goes pair shaped, expect him to mouth off about the club etc. Think he's quite a nasty character with chips on both shoulders - could be good for changing the culture at Hibs... or could be destructive.

Wow that's some pondering. At times as a support I think we're too fixated on scapegoating and the negative energy it creates is destructive. Now is not the time other teams have this to their advantage and our disadvantage. If we always look for a "Billy Brown" figure whatever that is then well find it. He likes a sunbed, Ryan has a flash car this "alright for some" attitude IMO is one of the least attractive attributes of our great nation.

Nah I just think he is a winner and was brought up in the Jim McLean school of siege mentality - where you are either inside and battling together or you can fluff off....

The ICT success was built partly on this fighting against those in central belt moaning about how they did not deserve to be in league / moaning about distance etc

Some of our support need to get what is beneficial for our club and whats not - surely for 90 mins anything else can be put aside

Baker9
04-05-2014, 08:20 AM
In fairness, Malpas seemed to react to the fact one fan shouted "Malpas, looks like you cannae be bothered!". I might be a bit demented but I actually think Malpas getting involved is a good thing because it showed he did care. If he had just stood staring at the pitch would we all have thought he cared? No, this way he looked like a bit of an idiot but at least an idiot who gives a toss...

In my mind, both Terry and Maurice are hurting because they're probably working even harder at Hibs than they did at ICT but as can be seen, there are more than a handful of players that aren't good enough. Also, while I accept Maurice probably isn't a likeable guy - I also, like him, don't understand shouting at him - usually you hurl abuse at the manager more than the assistant...

I want to see more passion, I actually think because there was some anger in the West Stand, there was some reaction from the players and we got the draw we deserved (at the very least). Good on Maurice and the fan that reacted decently, I'd much rather see this type of thing than have someone in the management team like Calderwood - guy who didn't care one bit.

Seemed to all kick off when Robertson was brought off, seemed like a few didn't agree with the substitution.

As has already been said, there was a heated exchange of words with Malpas and a few folk.

Minutes later, we scored and Malpas gives it the big GIRFUY and it kicks off again.
I was in section 44 in the east near the front and Robertson was clearly signalling for a while he was injured and wanted off so he made the call himself to come off .iimo he should of been off earlier as just coming back from injury and if he misses Tuesday could be because he was playing on when he could of been off at point he first stuck hand up indicating was in trouble so if folk were upset at his substitution they got that wrong .

Not sure if Robertson was carrying an injury but he was blowing out of his erse that's for sure. He was out for a long time so we can't expect him to be 100% fit already.

Exactly. I like to hear that the guy has a bit of passion.


Most people, regardless of occupation, when they are working their arse off are less than happy criticism, let alone criticism from folk who are 'supporters', and obviously are less skilled in football management.
If I got shouted at at my work im not sure i would stand and take it all day long without some kind of reaction.

Are there people on here who would accept that in their workplace? Football is slightly different, but we have been crying out for a bit of passion for ages. While some may argue that its ego rather than passion, I genuinely believe both MM and TB are trying their hardest. Why would they not be?

The Final of the "Coupe de France" took place on Sauturday night in Paris. It was a Breton derby - Rennes (200k+ inhabitants, big club, big budget) against Guingamp (7k inhabitants, wee club, smallest budget in the French top league). Guingamp, to my delight, strolled it 2-0 - Rennes were never in it.

Yesterday the Rennes squad were back training. You don't need to speak French to understand that the supporters present weren't happy, resulting in at least one player having to be held back by his team mates..
