Good works here from a true Hibs legend and someone who genuinely has the best interests of the club at heart.

The Protesters really need to have their voices heard by Dempster and anyone else present at the meeting. As there seems to be no formal agenda, could I suggest a repertoire of Hibs songs old and new might be in order?


Unless of course some enterprising attendee has already made up some suitable songs for Petrie...

Anything resembling the songs that were sung the last time there was a protest really will be embarrassing.

"Go home ya Hun" says more about the person singing it than Butcher and goes against everything this club now stands for. I really hope there is structure to this and things are kept civil as people can make their point without the nastiness.

Surprised at that to be honest, he has a lot to lose e.g. hospitality at games etc... so he must feel it's a worthy cause.

Good on him.

:agree:

The Quiet Man will have more inside knowledge than anyone else on the ER shenanigans both on and off the park, so I agree, his involvement has added much needed crediblity to Saturday's protest.

Pat Stanton would imho make a fantastic chairman . Loves the club and is held in the highest regard by us supporters .
Petrie out , Stanton in ! At the very least Pat should be involved in some capacity at the club ( not just the corporate side )

I'm delighted, the man is a true gentleman, it's funny how when the protests started, you had the usual I don't support petrie but im not going to protest brigade saying, this and that, with Pat there we are now mainstream, and have to be taken serious, rod ****ing petrie is not the only person capable of acting as conduit between the club and its absent owner, his time is over, he has to go for the benefit of the club

Err I reckon he has that a bit muddled If we were fickle customers and treated as such by the club, we'd go elsewhere and the club would be pissed. Because we're fans and going nowhere, the club treat us as such, and don't really worry about us upping sticks, because we pretty much won't.

He is a man of principle and has the best interests of the club at heart Will be interested to hear what he has to say If Pat thinks Petrie should move on people who were still undecided should come along to hear what a real Hibs legend thinks

theres plenty of hibs 'customers' i know that stopped going in the last 2 or 3 years

pretty much down to the die-hard hibbys at the moment and even some of them are being pushed to the limit

If anyone dare to say anything like that they deserve their heads knocked together!

Pat Stanton really epitomises every thing good about Hibs to think he would behave in such away makes me so angry!

the man lives and breathes Hibs and knows more about football thank Rod Petrie ever will!

When he speaks you know you are getting the truth and its from the heart too.

For those of you going to the rally please dont let your anger and emotions control you. Be dignified and dont let the club down.

You obviously feel strongly about what you are doing and you have a right to protest and want change but please dont let it get out of hand!

Listen to what GOD says and appreciate the man!

His comments read very well. I especially like his comment about Paul Kane, as whatever you think about the man, he has Hibs best interests at heart!!

"Someone had to stand up. Paul has done it and he is doing a great job. He has never wavered in his support and passion for Hibs as a player and a fan."

I think you will find that Keith Wright will also attend!

The basis of the growing momentum will be ex players standing shoulder and shoulder with Paul. Unfortunately Gordon Rae is in holiday but I'm sure he will make his presence felt!

The group of players being formed as part of this group is no longer one ex player,,,you will also see Gordon Hunter then the group is almost complete!

Stage 2/3 whatever it is will be unveiled soon I'm sure but the growing support from ex players is significant.

The next step will be looking for a change in ownership and before anyone shouts there is nobody then perhaps a consideration is multiple ownership by a group of fans? This however will be down to what STF wants for his stake! I am convinced fan power can exert change and STF who bought the club as a community project won't want all the pressure and publicity if it continues.

Interesting time methinks :-)

Anyone else quite excited about Saturday. It will be nice to see the Hibernian spirit out in force, everyone wanting the same thing. The atmosphere generated at games like Killie away in cup under Fenlon and a Derby this season was fantastic.

Regardless of what the media say, we have incredible fans.
If nothing is done this club is staring into the abyss and could easy end up like Dunfermline.

Be quite emotional seeing all the ex players united.

This seems to be getting pretty well orginised. Police have been informed and they have given go ahead (at least not stopped it). Speakers from an open top bus to address which i hope will be a large crowd. Any fans thinking they will not go as it might be just a rable then think again. We need numbers, as many as possible. Come on people, we need OUR club back. PETRIE OUT.

The only decent thing that happened to me the day of the Hamilton game was bumping into a couple of older guys who went with us to the Cup Final last year after the match, chatting to them and then God coming across for a word as he knows the guys.

Only met Pat a couple of times but he is always an absolute gentleman. He spoke clearly and calmly about what was going on both on and off the pitch but his passion for the club, what it means and what it should be, always comes through.

One of our group at the game was at his first game. He's a lifelong Gunners fan but since moving up here he's started taking an interest in Hibs and he will be at ER next season. Took him aside at one point in the chat and asked if he knew who this soft spoken, intelligent guy we were chatting (and as ever with PS he includes everyone when chatting) to was. He said 'an ex-player?' :rolleyes: He knows better now!!

Good works here from a true Hibs legend and someone who genuinely has the best interests of the club at heart.

Great stuff from one of the best players I've had the privilege of watching play for Hibs! :agree:

He hits the nail squarely on the head in this article and it really is amazing that the Club management haven't recognised and dealt with the Petrie and Butcher (and his two mates) situations yet! :rolleyes:

Hopefully the new CEO will take all of this by the scruff of the neck and clear it from under her feet allowing a successful recovery of Hibs as a football playing team to commence immediately! :agree:

In business, if there are "life threatening" problems affecting prospects for success, prompt action to remove these risks or issues is fundamental to recovery and success! :agree:

Any delay in taking the necessary actions to deal effectively with the problems usually results in more damage arising!
