What was in Butcher's mind to bring on Harris. His confidence must have been shot after the way things went at Hamilton and then being told you are not good enough for the starting eleven today. Would have even better playing someone like Cairney who can show a bit of bite and played at that level with Thistle and win those type of games.

Harris can seriously rot in the reserves for the rest of his days. We were very wrong about this guy, he is brutal. I don't care that he's young, look at some of the top teams in the world, they have players of Harris age. He is no where near good enough and I'm glad his confidence was probably shattered when Butcher subbed a sub, he was given a chance (like countless other times) and he once again done NOTHING.

Useless waste of a jersey.

Absolutely too far. He hasn't been the same player since his injury. He didnt play well but he is a young player and looks completely ****ed with confidence. He shouldn't have been playing, for his own sake. To post something like that is ****ing ridiculous. Happy to see him rot? You're a helmet.

Harris pre and post injury are light years apart. Should have got nowhere near starting eleven.

The substitution proved this.

I hope there is a chance after a pre season he can get back to those original standards, but on current form waste of a jersey.

Has been living on one good game against Falkirk last season for far too long!
Certainly has barely kicked a ball this season.
Cairney was the obvious replacement today, ideally from the start but definitely once Haynes went off.

Butcher has ruined him

This 100% !

Tells him he needs a spell out to get his head straight, plays him near enough immediately he's come out and said it.

Liam Craig - imposter
Scott Robertson - played within himself both games
Heffernan - his mind isn't on Hibs
Nelson - plays football like it's a curse.
McGivern - scoreboard might as well say 'opposition 1 Hibs 0' before kick off with him there.

Next season I truly see a rebirth of a Mowbray style team, loads of energy and youth, sprinkled in with experience, and a couple of older marquee players up for the fight.

Harris will shine under our new manager.

Feel really sorry for this young lad. He's clearly not the same player since he's come back from injury and needs time to develop away from the limelight. To victimise him in a team of woefully crap football players is abhorrent.

I cannot believe he came on for Haynes in 8 minutes ! I am not going with he is crap and needs to leave but every single person must agree that he shouldnt have got on today, or should have been benched a while ago and told not too worry next season you will be back. TB has to take the blame here he must be the only man who didnt see it. Collins has been poor but against a CHampionship side more his level he would have competed 10 times more than HArris.

The minute I saw Harris was coming on I though "oh no". He is clearly completely out of form and confidence. I don't know who was on the bench, but I'd have either put Thomson on and rearranged the midfield, or put Forster on the RW because at least he can get forward and provide an aerial goal threat.

25-05-2014, 07:43 PM
Extremely harsh to blame him. He is clearly lacking confidence and should never have been rushed back as it's Like playing with 10 men. I honestly don't know how we fix this or what's going to happen. Very sad day and I'm close to just packing it all in and lose all interest.

Not the player he first appeared to be last season. Age is no excuse, he's the same age as Riordan, Brown, Whittaker etc were at hibs. He never beat a man or passed to a hibs jersey all game. He looks timid and lightweight.

I still think there could be a player in there somewhere, he showed us last season that he can be a decent player. Hopefully the pre-season will benefit him but atm he really shouldn't be in the team.

Some shocking crap being spouted about one of our young players who was rushed back and has lost all confidence. This is the same laddie who was head and shoulders above all the jambos youngsters when we beat them at tincastle and had a very good end to the season. Butcher knows he needed longer out the team bur went back on his plan to rest him.
Hope a good pre season with a new manager sees a return to pre injury form.

Totally agree with this! Absolutely terrible player and its not down to confidence, should be released. Never beats his man, never supplies anything to the strikers, pulls out of tackles every time and has the heart of a mouse!

Unbelievable that Butcher chose him to replace Haynes after the way he played on Wednesday, should not have even made the bench today.

Of course, we should just keep backing these shocking players week in week out and not say a bad word about them! He's been shocking this year and I for one would not be sorry if he was emptied. I expect more from a winger than he is able to give

Bye, bye son.

Hey F!

What about that today then? :rolleyes:

Harris is scared of the physical side of the game and I'm not sure if that's got anything to do with the injury he had that kept him out for so long! :dunno:

What I do know is that unless and until he is prepared to go toe to toe and fight with opposition players for the ball when necessary, making solid and important challenges even when there is a risk that he may get hurt himself, he will never have the confidence as a player to achieve and fulfill his potential which we saw and enjoyed in the Scottish Cup Semi Final v Falkirk last season! :hmmm:

That's what was evident today and tbh, I felt sorry for the lad as he should never have even been on the bench for such a physical game as today's never mind getting onto the pitch ESPECIALLY ahead of Kevin Thomson who should have started today's game IMO! :agree:

Gonna take a couple of days to decide if I will renew my ST or simply attend the games I feel might be entertaining (that's what its all about after all IMO :agree:) on a PATG basis! :agree:

Not like its going to be difficult to get a seat! :rolleyes:

A big factor for me though as you know is whether TB and MM are still in post or not! :agree:

If they are then I won't be renewing! It's an easy decision to make for me as they have shown absolutely no ability to change a team when the game circumstances require it or to even pick the right team to win games they should be winning easily, today's being a prime example of that! :agree:

Why was Kevin Thomson left to rot on the bench for so long when it was clear that he could have given us composure, creativity and experience from the very start at a time when our youngsters would have been very nervous and needing an "old hand" like him for support, encouragement and re-assurance!

By the time he got onto the pitch it was far too late for him to have a material effect IMO as our team confidence was shot, we were defending so deep that I could have done a job against us with all that space to play football in and we were continulally firing our ONLY "outball" high in the air to our two very small stature wise strikers and to a couple of giant Hamilton defenders who won every ball!! :rolleyes:

Utter nonsense, we all have seen what he can do with our own eyes. Not his fault he keeps getting picked. There is a way to manage young players which decent clubs do. Our way is to just chuck them in and if they can't handle the abuse tough luck.

25-05-2014, 08:56 PM
This is a young guy who only broke into the first team last season, who then had a serious injury and hasn't found form since. He shouldn't be expected to carry the hopes of a team as poor as hibs. If we had a decent team, he wouldn't be in the side- he would be in the U20s learning.

Forza Fred
25-05-2014, 09:04 PM
Harris aside, we make the mistake of lauding ALL our youngsters after only one or two promising displays - probably out of desperation.

Stanton is the only prospect of note I suggest.

The others are nothing more special than what is in any other team's ranks

Has been awful for weeks but some of the comments in this thread are pretty disgusting. Mismanaged horrendously by Butcher, like many of the others - his comments that he wouldn't play again this season, followed by him then being one of the few guaranteed starters every week, were ridiculous.

You quite often need a few players in the squad, playing in roughly the same area of the pitch, to take Alex under their wing - someone like a McFadden, someone who has been there through good and bad. Who have Hibs got in the top end area ?

Heffernan - looks disinterested and rarely smiles let alone looks passionate. Collins ? That boy isn't nor ever has been a good footballer in my eyes. Cairney - he struggles with weight let alone football (albeit a nice lad).

Hibs as a team and squad lack leaders - take a look at last night and the CL game. A completely higher level of skill admittedly but principles of football remain the same. Real were 1-0 down with minutes to spare yet had been knocking and knocking on the door. They had Ramos at the back, rock solid, leading, they had Modric always looking for that ball, leading, and always circulating it quickly to the wide areas, you had Ronaldo, who was playing poorly by his standards, still leading, never ever hiding for the ball, and you had Bale, who had not really kicked a ball in anger........now, I'll wager that a Hibs fan would have been hounding the manager to hook Bale......hounding him. I laughed to myself last night as it's what went through my head when Townsend made a comment about GB not having any luck.

Hibs were 3-0 down to Falkirk last season, whole side having a mare, yet Alex Harris (and Danny) turned the game around, and then Leigh, the talisman, changed the game in our favour.

You stick by your talented footballers, that is what I have learned from watching football - you simply do not cast them aside after a few games. I watched Alex after being tipped off about him in a car park 5 years ago, and I posted it on here (that I'd been tipped off about him and was going to watch him). The boy has special ability but needs us all behind him.

I cannot wait to see him succeed - and he will, I have absolutely no doubt.

Still not writing him off but he really needs to grow a pair.

Pair of what ? McFadden is a brave laddie eh ? Jamie Walker at Hearts fairly puts a meaty challenge in eh ? That McGinn is a big hearted lion of a winger ?

How about Liam Craig growing a pair and James McPake growing an even bigger pair and being leaders and captains - how about Butcher growing a humungous pair and playing young players like Andy Black and Ryan Baptie when our full backs have been utter ***** ?

Lewis Stevenson, Sam Stanton and Jason Cummings - they have a pair after those two games. For a variety of reasons. And strangely enough, Alex wasn't the worst on the pitch.

Cue the media frenzy this week and thereafter when players are released and realise clubs will not come calling for them despite frantic agent activity......'My Hibs Hell' etc........like I said in my first post today after the game, this is a huge positive watershed moment which means folk like me will be happier knowing really good exciting young players will play or be signed to play. That for me is 'the Hibs way' and always has been - not watching utter dross like Nelson, Tudur Jones, Craig and Collins.

Even though he was having a mare Id have kept him on and hooked Craig instead. He would have been a handful against a tiring Hamilton defence and subbing him after bringing him on as a sub is terrrible man-management in my book.

Him and Danny Handling need to be spending their summer getting themselves acquainted with the weights room in East Mains though. Both talented young players being held back by their lack of upper body strength IMO

I think a loan spell in one of the lower divisions would do him the world of good. I know folk are hurting after today and it's easy to brandish him as s**t and not good enough. Confidence is not an easy thing to pick up, particularly when you are not playing in a good team. Find a league one club for a 6 month loan and I'm fairly sure we would see a different player.

I won't write the boy off yet, but unless he grows a pair he is never going to realise the potential we saw at the end of last season. He looks completely devoid of confidence, yet due to our completely unbalanced squad butcher kept selecting him. If he can not get to grips with the physical aspect of the game then I'm very sorry to say that he will never fulfil his obvious potential

Short sighted - Petrie got our club relegated and to be frank, it could have happened any of the last 3 seasons. Fenlon had to go down to the wire v Dunfermline, Calderwood relied on a run of 5 wins when it really mattered.

Butcher has a share of blame, he picks the side - truth is, the players in the whole squad, are all terrible.

Agree 100% Whiskas, this "debate" is taking place because a complete numskull put the laddie in this position, he can hardly say NO I DONT WANT TO PLAY, a so called manager dropped him in it and here we are!!! IF ONLY THE GUY WHO PICKED THE TEAM KNEW WHAT HE WAS DOIN, EH!!!

This thread is completely ridiculous.

We were all very happy to praise him to the hilt last year after his game against Falkirk (and in a few others too), and there was much talk of how he was going to destroy defences this season. The lad got a serious (and I mean, SERIOUS) injury, and his long layoff happened to coincide with a bad run of form for the team. Naturally, all the fans clamour for his return and, being desperate to appease those in the stands, he got chucked back in before he was ready to play. A few weeks in the U20s would have worked wonders, but we couldn't afford to do it back then. From all observations, he relies on confidence, and the more pressure he was put under, the worse he's going to perform.

Get a grip, give him time to relax and work on his game. He's a decent player. Not perhaps the messiah folk thought he was after Falkirk, but not deserving of this "he's p**h" lark.

Short sighted - Petrie got our club relegated and to be frank, it could have happened any of the last 3 seasons. Fenlon had to go down to the wire v Dunfermline, Calderwood relied on a run of 5 wins when it really mattered.

Butcher has a share of blame, he picks the side - truth is, the players in the whole squad, are all terrible.

Deservedly down - but thanks for your post Rod :aok::na na:

We need to take a look at ourselves as a support. Us (the majority) wanted rid of Mixu, Calderwood, Hughes, and then Fenlon. The board acted on what the fans wanted. And, the majority of us were happy with the replacement each time.

Butcher was brought in to improve what Fenlon had left (what was the point otherwise) he hasn't, he made that team worse. He and the players got us relegated.

How the hell did you know my name is Rod?

His arrested development is nothing to do with Butcher.

He has to want it and right now he doesn't have it in him. It all has to start from within.

Yep, the lad needs to find his own confidence if he's going to progress. There is only so much people can do before you have to take a look at yourself to see it's you that's the problem. Mentally he's a coward on the park just now. Hides and loses the ball every time.

Maybe if he gets past that he'll come good!

I'm responding to a ridiculous comment. For the record 2005 I've had two ACL's and was told at 17 I cant play again. Happy aye?

I know exactly what it's like to be out for a long time having had my fourth op last Tuesday to shave more bone.

His injury for me is an excuse he's very poor simple as that.

I responded to your ridiculous comment so I guess we're even.

I would have thought, with your history, you'd have been a little more sympathetic with Harris, especially given his age, and his undoubted potential.

He can only go on the park if the manager tells him too. What do you want him to do. Harris should not be near the first team. Butcher knows that, he put that boy in a position he should never have been in. Butcher should be ashamed of how e has managed this boy

I never wished the lad an injury though. I just vented anger at how bad he has been playing and he can leave for all I care.

He's had a very poor season and he must try and get stuck in. TB hasnt helped him but come on, was there any need at all to wish me a career threatening injury?

Like I say I've had one I've never played properly since I was 17 because of someone snapping my knee. Not only that I'm just out hospital this week because of this same injury many years later.

I (personally) never wanted rid of Mixu - he had good plans for the club and was 100% passionate, as he is now.

I wanted rid of Calderwood after the 'Notts Forest' rubbish. I wanted rid of Hughes 'cos I cannot stomach the man - he's a coward and stuck in the dark ages of football.

Ian Murray, minus Rod Petrie (completely), would unite the club - I'm 100% sure of it. Jack Ross is a right cool hard bar steward too - which is in keeping with the Turnbull way :aok:

Stop it ffs. Petrie made the bad calls. Repeatedly. Butcher came in & got us relegated. From as near to safe as you could get. Untenable. Both of them. Shocking performances in their positions. They SHOULD resign. If not sacked. Hibernian F.C. are far to good & far too much for either of them.

i do not see any one of them who are playing with any degree of confidence.
Friends opinions will not cut ant ice with him, Butcher has destroyed what little confidence he had.
The only thing that will help Harris is a new manager who can come in an tell him that he believes in him and is willing to give him time, as well as talking to him and giving him the support he needs, whether that be putting him out on loan or specialist coaching.

I'm not convinced it's all down to TB.

I remember him bursting into the scene and being really hopeful and optimistic. Then the season ended and all the talk leading up to the new season was about Harris, how good he was going to be etc..

My heart sank when I saw the poster boy for our new away kit on the shop. "Aw no, is this our new great white hope?" I wanted the limelight to be firmly off Harris to basically let him develop.

How much of this is all down to the weight of expectation? It's worth remembering that there is a fine line when dealing with such talented protégés. Do you rush them back, give them games to build them up? Or do you leave him out and run the risk of rustiness and a loss of confidence that way?

I think butcher was left with an enigma....but one that he sees talent in and one that fits into his style of play that he was trying so hard to implement with limited resources. Difficult one.

Totally agree with most of this. The amount of posters on here that seen Harris as the man who would be dragging us forward by the balls into the new frontier was ridiculous. We were talking about a boy who had played a and full of games for us and had done ok. Yes he had given us something different but to think that ha was the missing link was unfair on him. I don't know how much of that he took on his shoulders but I think that it really hind tell him.
as far as Butcher is concerned he left him out tonight because of his inept performance on Wednesday. We all seen how low in confidence he was, we all knew that he needed to be taken out of this situation. It was good to see today that Butcher had recognised that too. Or did he? I fear that Butcher has caused this promising young talent some long lasting harm. I don't see it as difficult, I see it as horrendous man management

Pair of what ? McFadden is a brave laddie eh ? Jamie Walker at Hearts fairly puts a meaty challenge in eh ? That McGinn is a big hearted lion of a winger ?

How about Liam Craig growing a pair and James McPake growing an even bigger pair and being leaders and captains - how about Butcher growing a humungous pair and playing young players like Andy Black and Ryan Baptie when our full backs have been utter ***** ?

Lewis Stevenson, Sam Stanton and Jason Cummings - they have a pair after those two games. For a variety of reasons. And strangely enough, Alex wasn't the worst on the pitch.

Cue the media frenzy this week and thereafter when players are released and realise clubs will not come calling for them despite frantic agent activity......'My Hibs Hell' etc........like I said in my first post today after the game, this is a huge positive watershed moment which means folk like me will be happier knowing really good exciting young players will play or be signed to play. That for me is 'the Hibs way' and always has been - not watching utter dross like Nelson, Tudur Jones, Craig and Collins.

I didn't word that correctly . I meant he needs to grow a pair and get over his confidence issues and start taking players on.
I know he is not a tough tackling player.

Harris can seriously rot in the reserves for the rest of his days. We were very wrong about this guy, he is brutal. I don't care that he's young, look at some of the top teams in the world, they have players of Harris age. He is no where near good enough and I'm glad his confidence was probably shattered when Butcher subbed a sub, he was given a chance (like countless other times) and he once again done NOTHING.

Pretty sure the majority of us were delighted when he signed a new contract and now people are saying he is utter ***** and a waste of a jersey...

He played well before his injury and was then rushed back into play by Butcher because everyone just gave up playing football and we needed someone to help us win something. He shouldn't have played so soon, he needed time to build confidence before being chucked in. I'm not saying he's not been pish for us recently, because he has, but the boy has no confidence at the moment whatsoever

Let me tell you something, though it's no secret.

Glimpses of talent will not help hibs next season. Whatever Harris did in his short 'glimpse' has been utterly demolished by subsequent performances.

Unbelievable that Butcher chose him to replace Haynes after the way he played on Wednesday, should not have even made the bench today.

Sounds a lot like what people were saying about Wotherspoon a year ago. How's he doing now?

Let me tell you something, though it's no secret.

Glimpses of talent will not help hibs next season. Whatever Harris did in his short 'glimpse' has been utterly demolished by subsequent performances.

Got injured and feeling a bit low and short on confidence? Go and tell your girlfriend.

There are tens of thousands of fans and a footballing institution in dire need of resuscitation and it will not come from players who can't cut it.
For Christ sake give the young guy a break I for one was cheesed off with so called supporters giving him a hard time yesterday Perhaps if he was shown a bit of support he could fight his way out of this bad spell

Harris I would love to come on and be a great player for us but we have to be honest. 1 year on and yes he was injured for a spell but he is too light and it is shocking how easy he is shoved off the ball. Yesterday, or the last two months, has not been a time to 'bring youngsters on to develop' it has been a time to get the job done and battle. Why was he brought in yesterday? He'll knows. He simply is not good enough, passing is horrendous and he can't cross a ball. Scared to beat a player and doesn't put a foot in. Wish him all the best aswell but he will drown even more in the championship. Let him go Terry.

Practically the only player in the squad who can entertain ( played badly in playoff matches but in other recent matches you could see he thinks a bit before passing and has great potential ) or a manager who has dragged us down playing hoofball ? On other hand if I was Harris and Butcher is not being sacked , I might be looking to change club .
