Can tell the Port Vale scoreboard operator to start games with Port Vale 0 Opponents 1 :aok:

Great player for pointing a lot, stamping his feet when a goal is conceded, 'jumping' whilst feet firmly rooted to the spot, making the football look like a beachball when he crosses into the box, giving the opposition full backs the day off when he plays :agree:

I feel very sorry for Port Vale.

I'd keep the heff, capable of scoring a fair few in the championship with the right service imo. That is to say any service that doesn't involve the ball being shelled at him from 60 yards.

Disappointed it ended this way with him, if he is indeed on his way, as he looked like he was a player when he first arrived. No idea what went wrong but he was a disgrace at times last year.

Would like to see Booth get a crack at left back.

Was excellent on loan but seemed to lose his way under Butcher and was terrible the last six months.

Think there is still a player there probably at centre half if he could learn to concentrate and get his attitude right

Him and Nelson are the two I want to see gone the most, one a truly horrific footballer who is cheating a living at this level, and in Mcgiverns case I at one stage thought there might be a player in there somewhere but his constant lapses in concentration and goldfish like attention span eventually persuaded me otherwise.

I thought McGivern's penalty he took in the play off was very good, and put KT to shame.

Mixed feelings about him going. But in balance I think he needs a move now.

Nelson defo but gotta keep the other two. Hanlon plays well given a decent centre half beside him. McPake and Nelson aren't exactly that. Stevenson, not a world beater but solid enough and a grafter of what well need in the championship.

Fat Penlon
26-06-2014, 09:09 PM
I don't know what's so hard to understand about hanlon and Stevenson not being good enough. Hanlon constantly punts 50 yard cross field passes mostly out of play and gets bullied out game by any decent forward, never organises the back 4 and never looks in control of any situation. He's played over 150 first team games FFS! Stevenson gives 100% but just isn't that good at any particular job on the pitch. As I've said before this is just my opinion which is why we all post on this forum.

They were surrounded by utter *****. Those 2 over the season showed 10 times the commitment and are of a higher quality than the rest of the wasters. They will be good in the Championship and we can't afford to bring in better.

Stevenson has been dropped by the last five managers and replaced by a new signing, only after the new signing has turned out to be useless has the manager had to go back to Stevenson. He's by no means the worst player at the club but the fact that he's been one of the first players dropped when a new manager comes in tells its own story.

26-06-2014, 09:21 PM
I'll go against the grain here, I reckon there is a player in Ryan McGivern, however it's probably the best for all parties he goes.

I went down south in the school holidays a year past October. It was an international midweek and Northern Ireland drew 1-1 away to Portugal in a qualifier.

I bought a paper on the Thursday morning and the reporter was raving about how good he was. Nani and Ronaldo were switching wings and neither got the better of him all night.

Somewhere along the way he has lost the plot but anyone who can keep those two quiet must have something going for them.

Re Stevenson and 5 managers, it's a bit of a myth. Butcher and Fenlon certainly rated him. Calderwood however, mainly used him as a sub to try and hold onto wins. He rarely started. Yogi was the same, he was a back up left back. Which for me is spot on - he is a good sub left back, nothing more.

Won't be upset to see either stay or go. But hugely over rated by many on here in my view.

In 1997 Darren Jackson was in the Hibs side finished 2nd bottom and stayed up in a play off. Next year he was at Celtic and playing for Scotland against Brazil.

You can be a great player in a pish team. See Leigh Griffiths.

If Hanlon was highly regarded by anyone other than Hibbys he would be attracting interest now. Maybe he will still go...

Again, I'm no slating him, just saying he is average. Definitely a model pro and 100% trier.

Of course there was a player in there as when he came he was good. But I'm sorry the mans football has went to pot because of his lifestyle I'm 100% sure of that.

If he stayed off the booze and out George St. And wanted to give his all I'm sure we'd see a much better player. Won't happen though and best for all he just leaves.

Sheffield Wednesday are my English team and Tbh they are pretty murder although they did have a better 2nd half of the season. Hanlon could probably get a gig there.

Maybe there's a case for strikers standing out more and being in more demand? Who knows.

Personally, I think you'd be mad to say either of the two were world beaters. However, I think you'd have to be equally as mad to think they're the source of all our problems and should be punted.

For the last few years of shocking football, they've both been a small positive. Two home grown players who give 100% to the club, can play a bit and have consistently been two of our best players over the recent years (Hanlon has shown a lot of improvement over the last two years, especially last year before his initial injury).

Currently, they are two of our best players. Currently, we're not where we want to be, or where we feel a club our size should be. If we do improve over the next few years (which I think we will with Dempster's approach to the complete revamp of our club), then we'll have better players, a better a squad, and be playing against better opposition in Europe.

If either Paul Hanlon or Lewis Stevenson are not good enough for a good Hibs squad, then fair enough, we'll have to replace them if they can't reach our standards/are holding us back. But right now, they're two of the only players we have that actually adhere to any standard. They get the club, they play for the jersey and they would be very useful assets to our squad over the next few years.

Maybe there's a case for strikers standing out more and being in more demand? Who knows.

Personally, I think you'd be mad to say either of the two were world beaters. However, I think you'd have to be equally as mad to think they're the source of all our problems and should be punted.

Of course there was a player in there as when he came he was good. But I'm sorry the mans football has went to pot because of his lifestyle I'm 100% sure of that.

If he stayed off the booze and out George St. And wanted to give his all I'm sure we'd see a much better player. Won't happen though and best for all he just leaves.

Agreed. It's a mentality thing. He became complacent over his time here as he had no challenge to his spot to keep him on his toes, and he tailed off at the end of 2012/13. He definitely had quality when he first came and was one of our best players that season along with Sparky and Claros.

He's a young lad who complied to the negative, lethargic and ever-failing attitude of Hibernian Football Club. We were failing on the pitch, with negativity plaguing the whole club, and he's thought "**** it" and took his foot of the pedal.

He became fulfilled with a wage-packet and the George St scene. Again, another young laddie who thinks he's 'made it' because of the lifestyle as the football itself isn't worth a **** anymore and becomes secondary.

I hope he moves on, as his career and probably life has became stagnant, which reflects the club as a whole. This is ground zero for Hibernian and hopefully Ryan moves somewhere without that malaise and remembers what his career is meant to be about and makes the most of it.

Sheffield Wednesday are my English team and Tbh they are pretty murder although they did have a better 2nd half of the season. Hanlon could probably get a gig there.

Wednesday are my English team as well but he wouldn't get a game for the Owls!

Mark Reynolds went to Hillsborough and couldn't cut hence why he was let go and I'd consider him to be better than Hanlon at this moment in time.

Some folk are cut out for the English game and Hanlon isn't strong enough to cope with the physicality of it IMO.

Another .net myth of pish. He was largely ineffectual against us last season. A good player who we should've kept on and managed and developed properly, but again he was overplayed, out of position and was another casualty of Hibernian's I'll-fated post 2007 'voyage' . You can't buy creativity, but it has to be managed correctly and Spoony's just wasn't.

And yet one has just signed for Fulham and the other Sheff Wed. The likes of Mark Reynolds has also had his move down south.

If Hanlons so good, where are the bids for him?

Both players have been playing in good sides up here. Hanlon has pretty much never played in a good Hibernian side. Were Fulham not sniffing around him at some point as well?

Sir David Gray
26-06-2014, 11:26 PM
It's for the best for all concerned that he moves on.

He was dreadful last season and a massive weak link in our team.

He also offers nothing going forward, apart from a massive hoof up the park which normally results in a loss of possession.

Hopefully Nelson will be the next one out the door.

Can't understand it he is not a bad player. Seen much worse players as a hibs fan. Can't put my finger on it. But he won't be missed that's for sure. Nelson next please

Him and Nelson are the two I want to see gone the most, one a truly horrific footballer who is cheating a living at this level, and in Mcgiverns case I at one stage thought there might be a player in there somewhere but his constant lapses in concentration and goldfish like attention span eventually persuaded me otherwise.

Yet, when he first arrived at the club on loan, he was a solid left back and we were all more than happy to see him sign a permanent deal.

Always gave 100% but caught the Hibs Desease and never recovered.

Just a pity some of the real players don't play like their animated selfs in Football Manager as McGivern's a good player in that.
I think he played well in his loan as he put himself in the shop window for a move but i think Hibs were the only team to offer him anything, maybe he thought he was better than us and his attitude began to stink. Will not be missed re last seasons attempt.

Not going to get too excited until everything is done and dusted and an announcement is made in case there's a sudden change of heart. Interesting that Stubbs has sanctioned this. I'm going to be glad to see him move onto pastures new but I wonder if the new manager has assessed him or watched any of Hibs in the last couple of years before sanctioning this. I suppose if McGivern had said he was keen to go he may just have decided not to stand in his way

Stubbs said yesterday he will be working with LD and George Craig in identifying the type of player needed for the team and the club and he will get the final say as it's his team.

Neither is a world-beater, but both are honest players who consistently give 100% whenever they play.

I agree also, we can't turn bad players into stars but we can ask that they give 100% & those 2 fit that bill. Its interesting that a year or 2 back we were desperately looking for a left back. Now we're unloading an international player who most of us, me included, thought we could never attract & we're happy! I did have the thought though that we're over loaded with left sided players, PH, CB or LS can all play at left back & in a pinch all in midfield where we already have Craig & Stanton who are left sided. We also have Cummings up front. As an ex centre back Stubbs will know you don't play 2 left sided CB's together. Look for a right footed central defender or right back as a priority signing.

McGivern was garbage, but as someone said, he was a young man that did what young men do. Get over the fact that you never played for Hibs, and stop putting false expectations on those that do.

Too often, in here, you hear what are thinly disguised attempts by posters to say they could have played professionally. Stuff like, "get them back and train them till they are good enough". Meaning of course, "if I could train as much as them, I'd be as good as them".

At the end of the day, he's a far better player than most people on here will ever be. Maybe if he'd tried harder, he'd have made less mistakes. Funnily enough, the best pro. at the club, Lewis Stevenson, still takes pelters from the guttersnipe element of our support.

I've been at work and not gave 100% but I still do enough to get through my workload successfully without any mistakes.

I've been at work and not gave 100% but I still do enough to get through my workload successfully without any mistakes.

Ryan McGivern didn't give a **** about hibs and it showed in his performances, which is as unprofessional as it gets.

The difference is McGivern is only asked to give 100% for 2 hours 5 days a week and picks up a greater sum of money at the end of it than I probably did in a whole months work.

I was merely a cog in a machine, accountable to only one. (My boss, who sets the standards btw)

Ryan McGivern failed to meet the standards expected of a Hibernian player and deserves to be gone.

I didn't have to be at 100% all of the time in my work to get the job done.

Ryan has to give his best to get in the team and then he has to impress his team mates, manager and thousands of supporters by giving 100% again.

He failed to do so. He failed to meet those standards (hence nobody likes him) And he deserves to be gone.

You are spectacularly, or deliberately, missing the point.

If you give 100% you are doing everything that us expected of you. It doesn't matter what those expectations are, it's the amount of them you deliver.

So if you don't meet all that's expected of you in your job, then you are the same as Ryan.

You're right. I am deliberately missing the point because your point is pish and pretty much everyone in here agrees that McGivern made his own bed.

It's heartening to read how so many people on here give 100% to their employer. No matter what your bosses ask you to do, no matter how stupid the company's objectives are, you still do your absolute best, never moan, never shirk a job, and never make a mistake.

McGivern was garbage, but as someone said, he was a young man that did what young men do. Get over the fact that you never played for Hibs, and stop putting false expectations on those that do.

Too often, in here, you hear what are thinly disguised attempts by posters to say they could have played professionally. Stuff like, "get them back and train them till they are good enough". Meaning of course, "if I could train as much as them, I'd be as good as them".

At the end of the day, he's a far better player than most people on here will ever be. Maybe if he'd tried harder, he'd have made less mistakes. Funnily enough, the best pro. at the club, Lewis Stevenson, still takes pelters from the guttersnipe element of our support.

I don't think you can compare a footballer to a normal job bud. They train everyday to make sure that come sat they do the job correct. He is a pro and shouldn't be out drinking all the time as it was clear to see it was effecting him and that impacts us.

Going out after defeats to Hearts and things is not on. Speaking to other pros they couldn't believe the things the players were doing and how they treated Hibs.

It's a short career and if he wants to drink all the time he's in the wrong job. I hope to god he gets his move for us as well as himself.

Well, I can see a few comparisons. In my job I rely on other people to do their bit as well, once morale drops you start to question what the point of trying is; after a while you realise you are going to get paid whatever happens. Sometimes you meet people outside of work, and you all agree that it's not your fault that the place is **** - it's usually the manager. So you wait for a new manager to come in, they always do. When the new boss comes in, you say they are even worse than the last, but who gives a monkeys the place is ****ed and its not your fault.

I think you'll find the person who brought up the employment stuff was you.

Your point IS pish, you know fine well what I'm saying yet you continually go back to the 100% nonsense.

The reason people bring up their employment in relation to football players is because it's unfair that they get away with under performing on such a regular basis (when we'd be sacked or demoted) and yet they get paid the same for it. Meanwhile we've worked a full week, made a fraction of their money and spent most of it on watching them not give a jot.

Players like McGivern take advantage of that and do the bare minimum as long as they can afford to dress well and have a few nights out a week. They want to live like superstars but have no ambition to actually become superstars.

So whilst I don't think being employed and being a footballer is the same I can understand where people are coming from when they use work situations in arguments.

Footballers have it easy compared to most of usand all you expect from them is their all, yet we rarely get it.

How do you know that's what made him personally decline and how do you know it would be different if we had someone else in charge?

The difference is that when you are a professional player you know that if you are lucky you will last 10 - 15 years. At Hibs level you need to last that long to make enough money to be able to survive when you stop playing. When a player is still young his reason for existing has to be putting in 100% all day, every day, in the hope that one day he will get a move to a club where he earns 10,000 a week instead of 1,500

That's the difference between buying a pub and spending 40 years working 50 hours a week running it yourself and buying a string of pubs and having someone run them for you while you kick back on the beach.

Unless a player is a complete simpleton he has to be aware of this. So forget about playing for the jersey or giving 100% for the fans. I would expect a Hibs player to train and train and practice and practice so that the latter of these two options is more likely.

Lewis Stevenson is a shining example of a player whose limited ability should make him a first division player, but hard work and dedication has made him an SPL player for 10 years.

Given the possible rewards its not unreasonable to expect any professional player to give everything they can.

Unlike some on here I don't think McGivern is as bad as many are making out - I'm seen worse players at Hibs. He has talent but the key is that he doesn't seem to want to improve on it and spends most of his time on George St.

Players like Latapy could get away with it as they had the talent and produced - when you don't produce it leaves you open for severe criticism.

Nelson doesn't have the talent but seems to be more professional - but still think he needs to move on - he isn't the long term solution and we need players who can pass the ball under pressure.

Seems like I'm in a minority of 1 but I'm appalled at the abuse being handed out to RM here. Without doubt he had a terrible season, not many players didn't, but I think our opinions of him are influenced by our original high expectations. At no stage however did I think he was shirking or not giving his all for Hibs. In a season where nearly every player was hiding & treating the ball like a hot potato he showed up more often than most. In the last game, either he's an Oscar winning actor or he was devastated. I've been following Hibs for 60 years, & last season was worse than conceding 18 goals in 3 finals to Celtc, our prior 2 relegations & other more recent games. However, a torrent of abuse to a young man who's already had many challenges in his career does not, IMO, reflect well on this board & remember, at present AFAIK he remains a Hibs player.

I never understood why people raved about him. I remember one time at Easter Road against Celtic (cant remember score) he was our MOTM. I was stunned as he hardly made a tackle or found his man with a pass. Just shows how poor we were. Looking forward to the start of a new era

It's mental the way he's went downhill since he first arrived. He's not even a shadow of the player he looks like someone out the crowd asked to play and hasn't kicked a ball in about 5 years.

This is for me the most significant post in this whole thread and the one we need to pay most attention to.

We've all had a chuckle at the Kujabi thread over the past few days but someone should dig out the threads relating to McGivern. In the early part of his loan spell I thought he was the real deal. Strong in the air, versatile, good in the tackle and more importantly I thought he was excellent on the ball. His touch and distribution were excellent, as you would expect of a player who came from Man City.

Got knows what happened to him but his is the most drastic fall from grace I think I have ever witnessed from a Hibs player. His long hoof straight up in the air has been the most frustrating thing a Hibs player has inflicted on me in years, mainly because I think he 's capable of SO much better. Or maybe it's the cross straight out of play once we've finally got into a decent forward position. Or the hopeless uncontrolled lunge for a tackle in a harmless position. Christ, I'm getting angry again just thinking about it.

Why has this happened?

We've got pages and pages of abuse of RMcG on his way out the door. Fair enough, in years to come when we're looking back on our relegation we'll focus on several images - Petrie's smug pus and 5th choice signings, Collins' hapless lumbering about up front, Nelson's aimless hoofing, Butcher's bewildered coupon after yet another bewilderingly poor performance and result, Malpas falling out with fans. But it will be epitomised for me with the image of McGivern giving the ball away for the 1st Hamilton goal at ER that we absolutely had to not give away to allow them back into the tie. He is the face of our relegation and his departure will be symbolic in putting it behind us and moving on.

There has to be something to be learned from this because I hope this never happens to another Hibs player.

Spot on, he had a very poor season in a very poor team, doesn't mean he wasn't trying ! I thought he was good when he first came on loan and we were happy to get him signed up. Had a decent link up with Harris at the tail end of last season. It is almost impossible to play a decent forward pass when the vast majority of guys in front offered no movement or were simply hiding. Sone of the abuse way OTT imo

Still cannot believe how despite clarification on "abuse" some folks justify it! Beggars belief. When the default goto solution for when the going gets tough is "abuse", then surely it's time to rethink. Is that kind of relationship with the club's player a healthy for anyone? When it gets to Pleas from managers (here I thinking Yogi with Nish) fall on deaf ears we're on a slippery slope.

:applause: My feelings exactly, John. lewis and Paul are the last players we should be looking to unload just now. Neither is a world-beater, but both are honest players who consistently give 100% whenever they play. The back four certainly missed Paul last season, and for all the barracking Lewis gets, he still turns in good performances whenever asked.

Every club needs players like those two, and the way some guys get after them on here mystifies me. :rolleyes:
Difficult one. We've had plenty of pish players that gave 100% but at the end of the day they're still pish. I wouldn't say either Stevenson or Hanlon are pish, but if we are building a new team I would wonder how Stevenson, in particular, would enhance our performances. There are better players out there than both of them, it all depends if we are in a position to buy them.

Can't disagree with a single word! I was delighted when he came back here after his loan period, he was a great player for us then. I'm disappointed things haven't worked out but lets be clear, Ryan isn't the only one at fault and for me, this is all the way from top to bottom!

Good luck Ryan, hope you can catch that early form you showed fro us.

Guys it's not about the abuse. This isn't made up this was happening every w'end and midweek. He was out getting pissed seen it myself many times as I'm friends with those involved with a few pubs on George st.

He treated this club with utter disrespect when we needed all players to step up. He had no real competition for his place and was happy to just turn up for a wage while letting his game go to pot.

Not only did it effect him it effected us hugely. If he stayed focused then fine I'd along with many say "it's just a bad season" so before you think for one min he's getting it tight for no reason you are wrong.

Many folk like to post "fact" when really it's rubbish. But McGivern and his drinking a huge issue and turning up at training feeling rough didn't help!!! No this wasn't often granted but once was enough and the fact he kept going out after defeats says all about how he felt about us.

So.... Ryan don't let the door hit you on the arse on the way out.

Hope this clears up a few things.

Agree this. Respect is earned. No problem with poor performances if its just the best the guy can do but there's been too many who haven't performed on the pitch who are at the top of their form in George st.

Wish they were as committed to the club as many of us here seem to be.

If we accept it or say nothing when we see examples like this we will continue to enjoy the fruits of the last couple of seasons.

I remember Callum Booth getting slated on here for being 'too fond of the bevvy/poor attitude'. Another .net fact. I don't know if alcohol contributed to Mcgiverns undeniably poor season, but I do remember being happy when we signed him. Like others have said he looked like a player ( I prefered him at CH). He was just one of many caught up in the utter tripe we've been subjected to over the last few seasons.

Hopefully this will stop the usual panic buy huddies we usually bring to the club and we actually have a plan of bringing players in to do a specific job in a specific position. :aok:
