Sorry, but I thought I read in a different thread that the Meeting is scheduled for 11.30am and we should gather outside the main Stand at 11am? (Assuming of course they will open the gates to the Car Park)

Tell them you are buying a season ticket...that'll get you through the gates.

This is the acid test time though - put it this way, when the club and team needed the supporters for vital games, we turned up and jeez even down to having 'green dot' counts.

So......if this is to be done properly, constructivey and more importantly civily, then there needs to be the same level of support - as that way I see it, this is far far far more crucial than a game against Killie for 3 points, or a play off game - this is for a monumental, club saving change.


My only hope is that this is done with coordination and as I said, a calm, lawful and civil manner. The main thrust of the argument is for Rod to leave the club with a degree of dignity and for us thereafter to move on with energy, positivity and passion. It cannot be simply Rod Petrie going and then believing the job is done - it won't be, as it will be the start of a difficult but exciting journey in the club's history.


I'd call it, for want of a better phrase, 'Season of Change' - I'd want a vision statement for both the club and the first team, far more interaction with supporters, far more school inclusion, a steering group formed to audit and report on the Academy at 6 month intervals (thus making it accountable to the supporters and interested parties), sponsorship to be looked at all levels with stadium naming rights and Academy naming rights being explored.

Team wise I want Hibs Media to be far more 2014 and not 1914......it needs refreshed and revamped, new ideas like 'fans commentaries' in games like the derby (Hibs fan Hearts fan), better interviews, a Captain's weekly update.......the manager meeting regularly with the support.

In short, any campaign (and it must be looked upon as a campaign) has to have a clear message, a clear focus and a clear argument - but with clear expectations and ones which are achievable with hard work and enterprise - we cannot do rhetoric and 'shoot for the stars'. The aims and objectives have to be attainable.

That for me is my thoughts on how we should go about things - I think as I posted before we have jumped the gun a bit this week, caught on the emotions of Sunday.

Let's think this through with deliberation and be constructive and reasoned. Emotions can get in the way of rational thought.

Run this past me, conducted "civily" - with a baying mob outside? Sounds like a very British revolution. In other countries they have the decency to spit on their enemies dead bodies, but here we give them tea and sandwiches and tell them they can say whatever they like - if we agree it.

hasta siempre la victoria!!!!

No FR, I want change but not when it's getting to a level which is beneath us - will shouting bile and abuse at a set of revolving doors do anything ? Other than make a few people a wee bit happier and their oxytocin level rise and make them feel happier :greengrin

I'm all for a gathering, but I want to know what we all collectively want as a club (apart from the clearly obvious and that is a winning team). Getting Rod out, although the main objective, is only for me a small part of the process - I want a total revamp of the club, from Rod to the tealady/teaboy.

There are a lot of very well connected, thoughtful, experienced and innovative fans out there - really knowledgeable about many things that could help and improve the club. That's why I posted what I did.

A few renditions of 'We Are Hibernian FC' and the Hibees bounce on Rod's bonnet are acceptable (I get Rod won't be there so the nearest Jag:wink:)

It's like waving a season ticket at a camera crew. :agree:

Sorry, I was just having a laugh there. I'm more in favour of small groups of organised fans carrying out protests than a large homogenous mob - as it is easily dispersed and there is every chance of negative publicity as a result.

I would hope the demonstration outside is stewarded and clear guidelines given about acceptable protest.

The meeting was purely with Leeann to get to know her and how all the groups that are associated with Hibs work and who they are. It was at her instigation which was a good sign she wants to interact with supporters.

It was prior to her first board meeting the following week.

There is a further meeting planned with the full board on 9 July though.......

a good opportunity not only for us to oust Petrie but to welcome Leeann and ensure her we're 100% behind her tenure... I know there are pro Petrie supporters, which again is fine as they're all Hibs fans at the end of the day, however, once this is resolved we ALL must be pulling in the same direction and wanting the same thing.

The time for mediocracy is over, it's going to be a long hard journey for everyone involved but we'll get there and we'll get there quicker if we're all in it together..

What if Dempster is as visionary, engaging and ambitious as we want her to be, but insists she needs Petrie there in the short-term? She's going to be under no illusions that most want him gone, but she's entitled to a handover period from the guy that recruited her.

If Petrie is still there in six months coming to the end of such a role, is it acceptable being Dempster's personal wish than his stubbornness?

Why not proper dialogue with the club with a plan and they would be more intent to listen to us. Having a campaign against Petrie especially with someone like Paul Kane at the helm a man who has despised Petrie for years isn't going to work. In not saying we shouldn't do anything but people need to get a grip. But come on a protest on Saturday really?:rolleyes:

If Dempster comes out and says she needs Petrie in the short term and can guarantee that he'll be out of the club in 6 months then I'm sure most people would see that as a success

Why don't you try and initiate some proper dialogue with the club and give them your ideas for your plan for change?

Actually, I think I already know the answer. You have nothing. All you do is disagree with everyone here and come up with nothing of your own. In fact, the only people you agree with are the others who have no ideas of their own either! What a waste.

I can't shake the feeling that this is all about venting frustration and revenge whereas it should be about moving forward. To do that we need a vision of what needs to be fixed and I'm not seeing that here.

Time has past for trying to take the softly-softly approach. Petrie needs to give a timescale for his departure or the home end at ER will be short of thousands of ST holders who had ST's last season.

What would you suggest the fans do?

Personally, I want Petrie to delare publicly what he'd sell his share of the club for. He deserves and has been given praise for sorting the club out off the field. He now needs to step away and let someone drive us forward with fresh ideas to improve revenue streams for the club. This goes from stadium naming rights right down to the tiny details like brand sponsorship for the TV's in the concourses. The guy took his eye of the ball and needs replaced.

In due course, I want to know what STF is going to do with the club when he dies. It's time ALL these questions are answered.

:agree:

What I'm worried about is Dempster's opening statement stressing that she has no problems with Rod Petrie. That suggests he still has an influence (no one dare speak ill of Rod, etc) and would without doubt set the tone for more of the same.

Have you not actually bothered to read any of the comment on here over the last couple of days?

Petrie's resignation was demanded because that is the first essential step to fix our club, once that is out the way we can all move forward.

Why is it that you expected the fans delegation to present detailed plans at this meeting when no one at the club was offering anything other than "I wont resign"

Why do the fans group need to provide a detailed vision for the future?

We still have a fully working board without Rod, the whole house of cards won't come tumbling down wihout him. Another board member can take on the role of non exec chairperson if it will be as hands off as Rod claims.

It's my opinion that Rod is now such a toxic presence that the only way to start engaging the fan base again is to remove him from the equation.

Having a campaign against Petrie especially with someone like Paul Kane at the helm a man who has despised Petrie for years isn't going to work. In not saying we shouldn't do anything but people need to get a grip. But come on a protest on Saturday really?:rolleyes:

Oh FFS ................... Having a protest against something you don't agree with is anarchy is it ............ geeze pace !!!

The point at which it should be up to the fans to come up with plans to take the club forward because the current incumbents have ****ed it up is when we either own the club or at least are represented on the board.

The vast majority of fans want two things to happen ....... The man we blame for the current shambles to remove himself from anything to do with the club and the owner who has stuck by him for far too long to break his self imposed silence, even if that's to call us ungrateful bastrtds and tell us he wishes he had a thousand Rod Petries.

Actually mate .................. I will give you a head start if you think you can come up with a fans plan. What about an owner or at least chairman who, if not a Hibs fan, is at least a fitba fan and can understand the emotion of the game ... Not someone who thinks balancing the books at the expense of the team and getting top dollar for our best talent is the be all and end all of a successful fitba club.

Why do the fans group need to provide a detailed vision for the future?

We still have a fully working board without Rod, the whole house of cards won't come tumbling down wihout him. Another board member can take on the role of non exec chairperson if it will be as hands off as Rod claims.

It's my opinion that Rod is now such a toxic presence that the only way to start engaging the fan base again is to remove him from the equation.

Firstly PB, full of admiration for you and others grasping the nettle - I do think there has been a little haste but I do commend action.

I do think we, as fans united, need to gather our thoughts and collectively have a vision for the club and the Academy - Rod's influence has been at the club for a number of years and certain methods and ideals will be entrenched.

Accountability needs established - not micro management, but staff and players need to know that there will be scrutiny if standards drop and methods are seen to not work.

I think we all underestimate the passion and drive we all have - and the innovation - something Hibernian, to me, was always known for. Hence I want more fan participation in the way the club is run.

Totaly behind this an will hopefully be there outside the gorund might not be big enough for the crowd that will turn up, inside would be better but there is about as much chance of Petrie letting the fans use the ground as there was of him dishin out that money for Griffiths. [ Leigh if your doing nothing next saturday get yourself along to ER]
No toilet facilities which could mean supporters using the walls of Norton Park business centre. If your lookin in Leeanne this might be a good time to bond with the fans and let us inside the ground. Any fans going will have to use caution especially our younger fans and not cause trouble plenty singing and banners. What would happen if 5k turned up outside the ground.

While I understand the frustrations exactly what is meant by Petrie out. Does he not have a 10% shareholding in Hibs so is someone buying his shares? If not then he has a direct interest in the running of the club so will still be influencing things. If its just off the Board then that achieves nothing as I am sure Vlad didn't sit on the Hertz board but there was no doubt he influenced things. What are we looking to achieve?

To be honest, I'm not sure of the advisability of this protest. However, if it goes ahead (which looks likely), and doesn't attract a good turn out, it'll look as though the fans aren't too bothered. So for that reason, I'll be there.

I'm on holiday and can't be there, so will email Hibs just to let them know that my non-presence should not be taken as a vote of confidence in Petrie or Butcher. They are so slippery that if 2000 turn up to protest they will simple dismiss it as a noisy minority and that the other 8-10 thousand regulars are satisfied with their management.

That's a very good point. If petrieout is to be fully achieved and his influence gone, someone needs to buy his shares.

Im waiting to hear the format for Saturday before deciding whether to attend. A lot of comparisons are being made with HOH in respect of this campaign. The HOH events were well organised rallies. If Saturdays a rally with a number of guest speakers ill pitch up. If its a demonstration with x amount of folk milling about and chanting "PetriePetrieGTF" for an hour count me out. The Gang/Group of 4 need to be very careful it doesn't degenerate into the latter.

A 10% stake doesn't give him much influence at all. Not remotely comparable to Vlad.

I've no issue with Petrie keeping shares, he simply has to be removed from the board. There is no reason for him remaining other than his own self interest.

Unfortuntatly something has come up for me at work which means I am no long able to attend (originally thought I was getting my shift changed). Gutted as I really wanted to go. I strongly urge any hibee that can to get yourself along - the bigger the crowd the ore chance we have of getting through to them and show them how strongly the feelings are within the hibs support. It'll be far easier for Petrie to patronise and shug us off like a bunch of silly little school kids moaning in the playground if the numbers aren't decent.

Normally i'm not one to really agree for this type of action but I completly agree that us hibs fans have every right to do this. We have sufferd for far to long. They told us years ago to "stand up and be counted" - well now we are!

I think your reasons, given previously, for not being convinced aren't very convincing to be honest!

The fab 4 are calling for the head of Rod nothing more nothing less. Any action they take beyond that will be with the backing of the fans, their own words - and mind they've only got this far with a majority of the support behind them.

By any footballing measure Rod has failed. We desperately need a football focus going forward. I have no confidence Rod is the best person to lead us.

That's how I feel.

Anything else is up for grabs.

The company I work for made 380 million profit. We too have our pillars upon which we build our relationship to customers and partners and guide employees about how we want to be perceived/image. However it had naff all to do with the 5 year business plan.

It's been a long time coming but petrie was never the right appointment for a football club chairman, he has such a negative public image that his presence in any shape or form hiders the club, he has to go, the campaign is going to stay until he has no more influence and is removed completely

Trust me, Petrie is going nowhere and will remain at the club. I heard Paul Kane's interview for the first time today and have to say if that's anything to go by this demonstration is ill thought, pointless, cringeworthy and embarrassing!!

Other than Petrie out, I've yet to hear a plan.

Am I the only one on here to be fed up with the sudden personalisation of the Petrie Out campaign.

All of a sudden we are hearing about the 'gang of four' and character assassination. All for responding to the calls from their fellow supporters to do something to stop the slide in our fortunes.
.
It's high time some of our supporters showed leadership. This is a commodity our club has been hopelessly short of during the past decade.

Couldn't agree more.

The stuff about finding Petrie Out cringeworthy. Oh I'm not sure about those posters. Oh that guy has an agenda. We need to know stages 2 and 3 otherwise...

Do you know your history? Do you think that in 1892 those who reconstituted Hibs all agreed with each other completely? Or did they work for the common good?

Don't like the rally idea? Fine. Don't go on Saturday.

Not comfortable about people wanting Petrie out or indeed about Petrie going at all? Fine. Don't rock the boat. It's your right and prerogative to not try to seek to influence matters and to whine on a message board about others who do want things to change.

My plan?

Simple really and it's already started.

Massive clear out of the squad (process underway)
New CEO appointment (done)
Rod to move over to non- exec director (done)
Terry Butcher to build a new squad for the new season.

My criticism is that I genuinely believe that this is what we need to get behind and that the demonstration is an unnecessary distraction that's all.

Some people on this messageboard are so negative and are always trying to pick faults in everything, no matter how positive or negative it is. Definitely glass half full individuals.

Why does Kano and co need to have a full proof plan or publicise their subsequent plans to back up their Petrie Out campaign? Petrie has said he won't have any day to day dealings at the club and won't have an executive involvement so there should be no reason for him to stay. Fair enough he has a 10% share but I'd hope a fan's share issue could buy out this share and also some of farmers shares in the near future if the club can be realistically valued.

Leeann Dempster does not need Petrie at the club and although she might say him being there will help her settle into the club, I would bet that if he left tomorrow it would not make it any harder for her to put her plans in place.

Football is probably one of the most unpredictable businesses to be in and any plan would have to be dynamic to adapt to constant changes in the parameters.Well if this situation has arisen from any kind of a plan that makes it even worse and shows how clueless they really are, they'd have been better cuffing it. Either way they have failed miserably and the person in charge is responsible for that and needs tae go.

Thanks for the reply. All the stuff you mention is well and good, but what is missing from it, for me anyway, is an honest look at how we got to this situation in the first place. These changes have come too late. The club has been relegated. We are in a huge mess. Supporters are angry and heartbroken. Those problems won't just vanish if we simply pretend they never happened, or think that a few changes here and there makes everything hunky dory again.

The stage 2/3 plans and the big secrecy from Kane is very suspicious in my eyes. I don't trust the 4 at all.


Why - They're not on the board so have no power to effect any changes to the club ?. Plus, any plans they have won't be that different to what we all want - a far-improved team. The 'secrecy' you should be concerned about is these 'Massive Changes' RP alludes to - AFAIK, we're still waiting for details of the '5 year plan' to be de-classified !

I think your reasons, given previously, for not being convinced aren't very convincing to be honest!

The fab 4 are calling for the head of Rod nothing more nothing less. Any action they take beyond that will be with the backing of the fans, their own words - and mind they've only got this far with a majority of the support behind them.

By any footballing measure Rod has failed. We desperately need a football focus going forward. I have no confidence Rod is the best person to lead us.

That's how I feel.

Anything else is up for grabs.

I'm sure I'm not alone with these thoughts.

Not really bothered if you are convinced by my reasons to be honest, they convince me and that's enough for me.

I disagree that the fab 4, your words :), want nothing more than rod to be removed. They clearly are not telling all about what they want.

Looking at this and other threads there are a number of fans that support petrie leaving but are worried about the course of action being taken, worried about what the consequences of this action will be, I hope we are worrying about nothing and the protest will have the desired effect. But I'm not convinced.

I totally support stage 1 to remove Petrie. Many thanks to
the 4 leaders. I agree with Kano that Petrie's influence and control has to be stopped. What happens after stages 2 and 3? Well that is up to us as a fan base such that kenny, mike, Kano and simon require the fans support to re build our club ethos and spirit. I suspect that Petrie out is also a euphemism for STF out too. That this is not said explicitly is out of respect to him and his family at this time for them and I commend Kano et al for that. But the Hibs have to be rescued again and it is up to us to do it. I have thought for some 20 years that the ownership is the biggest obstacle but even I did not anticipate the humbling of our great club in derby games, We have got to have Hibs people running our club. I personally am in favour of fan ownership partial or full. I would be delighted to pay £500 or £1000 as a membership one off fee to help own Hibs along with say 5000 others( a minimum we would get if done correctly). A circa £100 annual fee would aid annual budgets by some £500k. What is not to like about that?We elect a President with a 3 year term of office. He /she will select a board and they hire the CEO.
I believe the reluctance to say what stages 2 and 3 are are clearly negotiating tactics . Petrie clearly wants a pay off but should we give him a penny? Not me. If Kano et al are a front for an investor - let's look at that once Petrie and STF are gone. Let's have confidence that we have a massive fan base with a strong core support of around 8000. We can do this. If the 4 pull this off I might just possibly might go easier on simon and his support for BT- thanks mate you are a great Hibby with integrity on the ownership issues at ER.

I merely responded tae the fact that you said there was a plan. I said if they did and where we are is a result of it, it shows just how ****in' clueless they are (and they'd have been better cuffing it) and it's all the mair imperative that the person responsible for overseeing this mess is removed completely and immediately. If the new person coming in needs any kind of help overseeing the 'far reaching changes' (that have already been decided by folk here before she was) from the person who has overseen the creation of this ****in' mess, then we're in trouble. There's absolutely nae reason why Dempster cannae communicate with Farmer without him in the middle, there's nae reason for him tae be here other than his ain self interest, the longer he is, the bigger the divide becomes. I intend tae support fully any campaign tae see him removed and speaking personally I'll no put another penny in tae Hibs while he remains because I've already seen thousands of pounds of my money squandered and have had a gutful of him.

Basically what I think!

Of course Petrie has to be held accountable, he (and Farmer) is the one constant in all of this over the last 7 years. Players, Managers, staff all come and gone but he is still there, something is rotten in the club and he's at the centre of it.

However, this whole thing seems really disjointed and random! Who is leading the fans really? The entire plan seems to be "BURN THE WITCH" and not much else. I'm fully expecting folk to turn up at Easter Road with torches and pitchforks on Saturday with Paul Kane at the front!! Something like this...


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8S9Z5ANuT4


Paul Kane doesn't exactly strike me as being the best "leader" in all of this, he along with quite a few others just seem to want a bit of attention.

Surely there's something more constructive that can be done rather than getting a hate mob down easter road to scram a few obscenities at the walls!

As I posed the question previously, what would be your idea of a better way?

I genuinely believe that we're restricted to what we can actually do. So the more noise and publicity it makes, can only aid in getting him out IMO.
If people are happy to accept what's happened within his tenure then that's their choice, but what optimisim does that give you that he'll get us out of the mess we're in considering the demise he's overseen.

If we truly want fresh ideas and changes within our club, then the leader who has overseen this has to go!

The ultimate goal is correct, the method in which people are trying to achieve it is not, in my opinion anyway.


I'm also for getting Petrie Out and share some of your concerns about how this rally is being organised and linked with other activities. The meeting with LD is a good start, but what else do are they planning ? Where's the momentum ? It's 10 days since the Hamilton disaster and we seem to be sitting on our hands waiting for Sat ? The 4 need to have a cohesive PR strategy, keeping this top of mind and in the news. Roll out more celebs to support the group, asking more pertinent questions about the club's future, re-build, next season etc really keeping the pressure up on Petrie and the club.

Petrie & Butcher have gone to ground, when they should be forced to answer key questions and face up to the mess they have put us in.

This all brings to mind the wonderful phrase used to describe the miners during the 1984 strike.

Lions led by donkeys.

Maybe more akin to the wonderful phrase "Nero fiddled while Rome burned"

So how would you go about it? I'm curious to hear your thoughts.

I'd like the group to step back from the brink and let LD do the job she's been brought in to do. To force her in her first week to either back the owner or the fans can only weaken her hand. There's no way Rod will make any statement to the protesters, it'll be LD that is forced to react to the protest or ignore it which will alienate her from one side or the other before she's even started.

"A group who refuse to be open about their intentions" sounds like poetic justice if they are the catalyst to oust Mr "unworkable legacies" himself.

So this is about justice and not what's best for Hibs?

She won't do that. She's not stupid. To do that would be to inflame every side in this and would serve no purpose. The meeting goes on inside. The protest outside. They are linked but not joined at the hip.

Am I the only one concerned that Leann has been recruited by Rod (refer to many posts on his recruitment success rate over recent years), she will have been briefed by Rod on what is wrong with the club, Rod will have set out the framework of what needs to be done and Rod will be in the background pulling the strings if she goes in the "wrong" direction?:hmmm:

How and why would it inflame every side?

Surely being the new sheriff in town she would like to come out and say a few words, show us this community spirit we were promised. Tell us she is going to listen to every side and from this plan a route of action, no?

Also, hopefully she comes out and says she will do everything in her power to make sure Hibernian Football Club reinstates its top team status by the end of 2014/15 season. - Which would be greated by a roar of cheers and a sense of optimism going into the new season (something which aint been at this club in a wee while, wee need to ignite this flame).

Not every Hibs fan uses social media or, even read papers but will be there on Saturday... surely good old public speaking would get the message over to them, no?.

I'd like to hear from her and what she's got to say, no fae you, no fae anyone else, except her.

And while Petrie's there and she hides behind closed doors - i will always suspect Petrie is behind everything, regardless of what is down in black and white.

Not read the previous 7 pages so apologies guys if these ideas for chants have been mentioned.

"You're nothing without us, nothing without us, Hibernian Football club, is nothing without us"

"We'll support the team evermore, get to f*** the f*****g board!
Cmon Hibernian, f*** off the chairman
We'll support the team evermore, we'll support the team evermore"


Its late so might be rubbish but thought i'd give my tuppence worth. The team could be changed to Hibs for the second chant maybe?

This is getting silly now, if she doesn't come out and say a few words to the crowd then she is hiding behind closed doors? Are people deliberately wanting to undermine her before she even has her feet under the table.

Petrie has to go. I think pretty much everyone agrees on that. I'm just not convinced that an angry mob led by a small group who refuse to be open about their intentions is the right way to go about this.

Intentions are clear #petrieout. No angry mob.

Dempster's interview did worry me a little. While she did make things sound upbeat and she stated that she is in charge, she also quoted 'Petrie will be the go between man' between Dempster and Farmer.

Also, who does Petrie get his wage from? Is it Farmers holding company?

Sad to see the division of some fans on here, as .net represents only a small percentage of Hibs fans I wonder what the real figures are with regard to support for this action.

i think kano hit it on the head that around 95% want him gone . some of the no votes on here and bounce will be yams on the wind up. every hibby iv spoken to in the last few days all said the same thing petrie out . have yet to actually meet a hibs fan in the street that wants him to stay .

No, not at all. I just want her to grasp the bull by the horns, show some leadership... Something not seen at this club in years. I also want the chance to read her body lanuage as she delivers a message aimed to unit and push this club forward.

Look at the situation, the majority of the support want Petrie away, potential demonstrations, unrest between certain quarters of the support on who should represent everyones interests - really divided between Kano. A league that i feel the club/board should be looking to get out off - IMO this year, look around, we have no first team so far with only 9 weeks or so to the start of the season.

I' not undermining her, i want her to show leadership, communicate especially regarding the management situation - the club have yet to answer questions from a huge majority of the support regarding Butcher's future.

Of course there will be a lot of anger - thats why we are protesting in the first place. Theres a lot of anger and frustration at how our club has been run but as I said on another thread, if we start breaking things or throwing objects etc. then it will completely discredit our campaign and we will loose all crediability. Furthermore, it will only serve to make Rod Petrie dig his heels in even more as he wouldn't want to be seen bowing to thuggish behaviour.

The media will no doubt have caught wind of this and may come along so lets not show ourselves up by being photographed acting like idiots. Keep it as dignified as possible. Show our anger/frustration/discontent etc. in an adult way - after all if we act like adults we are more likely to be treated like adults and be taken seriously.

You dont own the club...None of us do. We can all say its our club etc but its not. STF owns the club, and Petrie manages the finances of the club on his behalf.

I hear what you are saying and agree with trying to get rid of Petrie but we can demonstrate all we want t but he will not leave. This protest will get us nowhere. I was originally going to attend but I just can't convince myself that it is worth the effort or that anything will change.
