Stubbs will be glad to get out ! We're ****ing stuck with it !

Another year of lower division pish at Premier prices, and great prep for a Cup Final. Jess, being a Hibs fan is special.

we take our chances and we score 4/5/6 goals in that game and it's over. we can blame penalties and red cards and all that **** as much as we want but we should have had that game done and dusted long before Falkirk equalised. 3 years in the championship, **** me. goodbye Alan.

We needed a 3rd goal, we didn't get one. That cost us and unfortunately the writing was on the wall.

Stubbs starts with a game plan and regardless what happens during the game he just doesn't waiver from his plan.

We so needed to change things to influence our play, exactly what Falkirk did.

Thought we were unlucky TBH. The club had built respect back under Stubbs and he could yet win us the SC. Either way, he'll be gone and we'll have a new man that'll win the league which will include Falkirk.

I respect your optimism but feel we have, after a 3rd (predictably underwhelming) season in this crap league turned into the Leeds, Sheff Utd,....spiralling 'giants' of scottish football. Agree that AS will go, we'll get another good appointment who gets sucked into the hibs black hole. Sorry for the doom and gloom, not usually my style, but thats the script in my view.

It seems almost impossible for a team to keep ****ing things up in such spectacular fashion. How many games have been like that this season? It's baffling.

I'm not sure they could get any more spectacular, but we've got the cup final to 'look forward' to next week. I'm sure the players will find some way of losing in a more spectacular fashion....

13-05-2016, 08:51 PM
We were so poor, it was only to be expected. Half hearted players who don't give a toss. Meanwhile Falkirk who are pish but have players that want to win do exactly that.

Can someone just confirm if McCracken actually got booked over the two ties? He did enough to get sent off three times. How the **** are you supposed to win against that? That's ignoring the most obvious penalty denied this season.

My thoughts exactly. Literally just what I'm thinking. Should really not encourage my kids to support Hibs. I have the perfect excuse as I live in Wiltshire.

Gutted is an understatement. We are like broken and battered wives, just coming back for more before being smashed in the face and pushed down the stairs.

How many goals have we lost from long throw ins over the last few years..

Have we ever practiced defending them ?

ANOTHER opportunity gone like the League Cup final
In a game which was winnable.

To be ahead 2-1 twice and blow it is just simply mentally poor.

Not bad luck - no curse - no excuses - just not good enough.

PapillonVert
13-05-2016, 08:51 PM
Dominated after 1-1. paid the price for no 3rd goal. fine margins:boo hoo:

So typical of Hibs over the past few years - we just cannot hold onto a lead.

When we went down, I thought we would be down for 2 - 3 years. Unless we can find some bottle (and the extra goal when we are ahead), I can't see us going up even next year (minus Hearts and Rangers to contend with).

Why are we just so bad?

mcfly
13-05-2016, 08:51 PM
How many times can hibs kick there fans in the teeth??

It's just unbelievable and how many of us really think Stubbs can pick this team up and win next week?? That's last minute goals lost again in massive games

Stokes back to Celtic - waste of space and def should not play in cup final.

Sadly for Stubbs - the jury is now seriously out and unless he wins at Hampden hel"ll be out

Stubbs has to go no matter what happens next week

Unbelievably, Stubbs is in control of the situation. The only way he won't be here next season is if he decides to go.

I'd bin him before the cup final personally.

GreenLake
13-05-2016, 08:52 PM
Houston didn't win that game and neither did Falkirk. Stubbs handed it to them with his genius persistence in losing crucial games by keeping the same faltering team on the pitch. Subbing is like a taboo.

I guess as manager it's up to him, he makes the choices. He was very hideously wrong in this game which we could have won with a few performing players. Stokes was a complete nightmare tonight and should have been hooked. I want to check and see if he put some bets on anywhere his performance was so bad.

Finishing third was the problem, another season in the second tier of football, never mind HSL and all the bull Dempster, Farmer and Petrie created to take away the focus from them. Petrie and Farmer are going to have to get their cash in now to get us out of this pi shy league because I can see us down there for a few more seasons at this rate and before I get slated for criticising Farmer and HSL the facts are there, they deflected their shortcomings by getting the fans to put their hard earned cash when Farmer and Petrie should have been chased from Easter Road

we have the biggest game ever next week and I will be there, I advertise at Easter Road and I have renewed for next season. I therefore expect Farmer and Petrie to break the bank to get us up as champions next season

Two absolute screamers sealed the win for these mutants tonight.

As much as I like stubbsy, after the final it's time for him to leave. A team of good (not great) players assembled after the shambles butcher left isint good enough. Much like roberto Martinez the entertainment comes second when there's a goal at the end of it. I'd rather have a team of cloggers like Falkirk than a pleasing team that TRIES to play teams off the park but keeps loosing goals like a primary school football team.

We will win the league and I don't think Falkirk will beat Killie.
The SC final is a single match and more of an open football game, hence we've beay Rangers a lot.over thd last few years. We can't give up on that.

The summer and beyond is a nightmare. It really is. But we'll win the league and we'll be bored or complaining of 5th in SPL soon enough.

We don't have a forward line that scores enough goals, we don't have a midfield that scores enough goals we don't have a defence that can defend and we don't have a goal keeper good enough to contribute 10-12 points a season.

We lost this game like we've lost plenty others over the season. Blaming poor refereeing decisions and bad luck is all very well, but the brutal truth is that we're just not good enough.

We played well up to February, even though we weren't scoring anything like enough goals, but have been very average with odd decent flash since then.

I think whatever the result of the cup final - and right now I couldn't care less about it- we should part company with Stubbs at the end of the season.

Fair doos mate, I just see us being on a level peg with Killie / Falkirk, Pars, Raith with a view to struggling to dominate the league and win it outright. Hope we get the act together but, quite rightly so, have no reason to predict we will meet expectations. I have few proverbial 'teeth' left after the serious kicking my football club have given me.

We mucked it up because sometimes individuals think they are more important than the result and the club. They think their philosophy and beliefs are the right way to proceed and they stick by them at everyone's expense. Regardless of plain and simple observation, of tried and tested techniques from winning teams.

Do the stats. Isolate the horrible defeats and stat the subbing by the teams that beat us.

Miserable horrible play by a team which is underperforming by leagues.

Seriously! Let them go! They've had the season to get us out this division and they've failed. All good if we're trying to play against teams that try and attack us but these guys aren't up for this division!

We need no nonsense players to do a job and get us out this ***** league. Worry about the top league when we're there!

The players you've stated are good no doubt but Christ almighty id rather watch a team that wins now than a team of pass pAss pass, cut back, cut back again. (Defence back in position) then play a cross in!

I admire your optimism but we weren't unlucky we were unprofessional in not clearing our lines when we had the chance to.

We can blame refs etc but we weren't good enough.

Those players let the fans down again and if fans don't turn up then it's not being disloyal it's because they want change - Alan Stubbs has failed - yes he's got us to 2 cup finals but that means nowt if we don't win.

I think there will be plenty tickets going spare for cup final now as right now as fans will not be confident and £380 for a season ticket - eh let me think about it....

He has simply failed at the objective at the start of the season to get promotion.

I always felt we would get play offs but as we know it was s complete lottery.

To be winning 2-1 not once but twice and blow it is farcical.

The players were mentally weak and not fit enough or good enough to defend a lead twice.

Falkirk score goals from long balls and throws and have scored several late goals - we shot ourselves in foot with lack of subs and players lost focus late on.

The cup final - massive underdogs..of course I celebrate if we win but right now it feels like we are going into a lions den.

When we beat Budge's mob loads on here raved about ending 'their' season it actually appears to be the case that we put all our eggs in the one basket for that game and have been found wanting in every big game since. Will now attend the final with absolutely no confidence and will expect nothing. Very angry.

I just don't think I can justify £22 again to watch us play part timers next year. I know season ticket prices are already set but the club need to wake up, that is an embarrassing amount to charge for the level of football we are watching and the product on the pitch. If we lose the final and Stubbs stays we'll be playing in front of 5-6k fans next year

Personally, I think tonight's result will mean more than a few more seasons down in this division, there's something cursed about our club, has been for years.
I don't know how were going to recover from this.

Leanne, Stubbs and every new incumbent always thinks it's a myth concocted by the fans. Now Stubbs is starting to get a tiny little taste of what it's like to be a Hibby. The final humiliation and tragic disappointment will be completed next Saturday at Hamdump in front of the latest batch of 25,000 Hibs suckers.

Bad luck, losers culture, official bias... each take their turn in kicking us in the teeth.

Another season in this league is catastrophic to our club. Fewer STs and fans thru the door and the impact that has on ability to keep our better players means a much poorer playing squad thus, in all likelihood, another season in the championship again next year..and the cycle repeats.

Stubbs will be fired and KT will be named as manager, it's the cheap option and the reason he was signed as player coach, which has the stench of Petrie all over it.

Love this club but it's hard to write that with the conviction I used to have.

Right now I grudge a cup win for Stubbs. If it wasn't so important I would hope for a loss. Win the cup it won't be anything to do with him.

If we win its got nowt to do wi the manager but if we lose it's all to do with the manager. Stroll on.

Stokes back to Celtic - waste of space and def should not play in cup final.

Sadly for Stubbs - the jury is now seriously out and unless he wins at Hampden hel"ll be out

He will take one of the offers down south he wont want a third season im championship imo Most of us don't want it but hey we ate ****ing stuck with it now

When we got relegated, it was at least a 3 year project to get back into the premier league. Yes it would've been great to go up this year, but in reality we don't deserve to go up. We regroup and go again, whoever is at the helm.

We haven't been good enough for a long time. Umpteen shots at goal, some on target, 1 maybe 2 goals and easy to score against.
had we won through tonight it would only have meant another 2 easily loseable games against Killie, I don't believe our current form suggested we would beat them.
I fear for the final, confidence will be shattered and the exhaustion will kick in after that result.
opportunities to rest players earlier were missed in my opinion. Said it earlier so not in hindsight.

something has to change or it'll be the same next year.

Nothing else to do at the weekend so I'll be there again next season.

I'm not sure they could get any more spectacular, but we've got the cup final to 'look forward' to next week. I'm sure the players will find some way of losing in a more spectacular fashion....

Or, more likely, be winning with five minutes to go and still lose it!

Why can we not hold onto a lead? Been a problem for a few seasons now.

When we originally went down I thought we could be down for about 3 years but now I think it could be even longer.

We just have no ambition.

So utterly frustrating.

I think Falkirk can't be blamed for walking through an open door. I hope they get beat by Killie though because we will tan them next season. A manager with some simple understanding of football will tan them with half of our players.

Stubbs. You are destined for not very much I think. Wonderful sets and great scenery but the plot was weak and the actors were cast rather poorly.

You will go down as a legend if we win the cup, but I will remember Eddie Turnbull.

yip it was stubbs fault we never got the penalty ER, it was stubbs fault that the the player was not sent off for hand ball for the penalty we never got, it was Stubbs fault that Logan messed up for the second goal at ER. tonight it was Stubbs fault that Stokes hits the woodwork, it was Stubbs fault Cummings hit the woodwork. It was Stubbbs fault that players made mistakes for the first two goals tonight. in fact every mistake a player made was his direct fault as he picked them for the team.

When we replace the manager that has for the first time ever taken a 1st division club to the final of both cups that he can influence players not to make mistakes on the pitch or ensure the shots that hit woodwork instead go in.

i'm so gutted that we have not made it through to play Killie but after watching Hibs for over 30 years it's just the reality of our situation of who we are and that the hurt, heartbreak and depression will always be ours. it is our cross to bare for some reason

Thats a really good loyal attitude - get a grip we were massively unlucky again remember what we were like under Butcher not that long ago.

Not surprisingly this one feels even worse.
Under Butcher we became not a great team and the inevitable happened against Hamilton.
Last season Hertz and the Huns ultimately done for us - possibly as expected?
This season, we should have been pushing the Huns, not Falkirk for promotion.
Is it bad luck or are we just not good enough? I really don't know anymore.:confused::confused:

Sad thing is, even IF we win the cup next week, it will have a really hollow feel about it. I somehow don't feel as though I would celebrate with any excitement. That's a really bad thought/feeling to have.

The thing is, that's not a side note, that's the tie done and dusted right there I'm front of our eyes. If that was either of the old firm on the receiving end of those decisions, official's careers would be ended. Gutted, but struggling to be angry with management or team when up against those decisions. Worst thing is that media will just make light of it rather than rightfully slating what went wrong over these ties.

I did get my team promoted this year, but it took 3 years!

I wouldn't be looking to punt him, it's not his fault we are in the championship. We were never going to go up automatically last year or this, next season will be different.

And if we don't get promoted next year what will we say "ah maybe next year" it's getting a bit repetitive.

No way he deserves another go next year. In hindsight, should have punted him a couple of months ago

What good has punting managers done us before?? If we had an Alex Ferguson waiting in the wings then aye but who would we replace him with... Stubbs is a good guy with a good team around him who cares about the club. I did not expect us to win the league this year - he has got us to two cup finals and the play offs.

I don't want him here next week if I'm honest.

I feel the same way, Aldo.

I was already leaning towards the argument made by some that he should go before the play-offs. I wasn't 100% convinced but could totally see where people were coming from. I was beginning to think it might just well be worth taking that chance.

Right now I cannot see us beating The Rangers. He's obviously a dead man walking, what sort of preparation can he make for a cup final with that hanging over him? The fans are still going to be gutted & angry. The first sign that the players are not giving it 100% he will start getting it tight. That'll soon come through to the players and they'll start making mistakes, creating a vicious cyle. If he goes it removes the focal-point for our disappointment/anger and we can concentrate on getting behind the team.

having the same points total as last year is not a positive. it was an easier league this year, with a better squad of players and with it being our second year in it you'd think we'd be able to know what to expect and how to play against teams more. evidently not.

i agree but how is it the managers fault that they did? i feel as gutted and as angry as you. however, the answer is we need continuity to build the future not always changing the manager when the short term does not meet the long term goals

Change the record.

Losers last year and losers again this.

Iv said before. He might be a good manager, but he's simply not good enough to get us out this division. Give me journeymen and cloggers if it means getting out of this

We have lost two games this season, tonight and the league cup final - both of which we were the better team- that would have completely changed your feelings about the manager had we won.Two games. I m sorry but this is more bad luck than bad management.

There is no guarantee we will go up if we hold on to Stubbs next season but I will be even more worried if we ditch him and gamble with yet another manager.

The one constant over the countless managers we have been through over recent years is us the fans. Maybe we all need to change the record...

It's the managers fault that the same old issues that have plagued us for 2 seasons haven't been resolved. Don't score enough goals and concede far too many

your right we should have brought in a striker who has scored goals for fun in Scotland, oh wait a minute, would that not be Stokes. or bring in a central defender who had been voted player of the season from you nearest rivals the season before.

And both of these happening helped us finish worse off than what we did last season. Go figure

He signs the players, he coaches the players, he motivates the players, he inspires the players, he gives them confidence.... or maybe he doesn't and that is why I think he should go.
How long do you think he should stay?
How many attempts should he get at getting out of this league?
We are worse off than last year in a weaker league. I would agree with your continuity argument if we were in the SPL and we were building for the future but we aren't.

Leanne, Stubbs and every new incumbent always thinks it's a myth concocted by the fans. Now Stubbs is starting to get a tiny little taste of what it's like to be a Hibby. The final humiliation and tragic disappointment will be completed next Saturday at Hamdump in front of the latest batch of 25,000 Hibs suckers.

Bad luck, losers culture, official bias... each take their turn in kicking us in the teeth.

I'm just tired of being the nearly men again.
Our league system sucks and the play offs format is crippling and disadvantageous to the 3/4th place sides.
Willing to give Stubbs one more season to cross the rubicon but it's his last chance saloon.
Getting our of this league for a club with our resources should not be rocket science.
Dreading Saturday now

When we got relegated, it was at least a 3 year project to get back into the premier league. Yes it would've been great to go up this year, but in reality we don't deserve to go up. We regroup and go again, whoever is at the helm.

The players where identified to get us out of the league, not to do that and get us to two finals. i don't think you can over state the demands on a squad to play over 50 games a season when none of them have played that number of games before and you have manager who has no experience of coaching to that expectation. I think next year we will be in a much better place due to the experience of this year. I thought we only had 2 players on loan henderson and stokes who play regularly?

plus we could be Scottish Cup winners on 8 days time, could we really sack a SC winning manager?

No, there are is another constant, and that constant made the decisions which led us to where we currently find ourselves.

How many games have we lost this season? I'm pretty sure it's more than two.

Are you really trying to argue that it's the fans' fault? Really? :rolleyes:

No, not at all. What I am saying is that when we went down, it was at least a 3 year stay in the championship. We HAVE to go up ( automatically) next season, or we are in serious trouble....we will become and remain a lower league side for god knows how long.

I know we don't like to harp on about the past, but there is one man responsible for this mess, and it ain't Alan Stubbs.

I don't want Stubbs going anywhere, he will get us promoted next season ( if he stays)
I agree

i am abso****ii*lootly devastated by tonight..to loose 5 goals over 2 games against them is quite bewildering really. Why does every half chance go in all the time..Should we have done what the old Italian teams used to do and just shut up shop at 2-1 in the 80th min? Bring Fontaine and Gunnerson on and just battle for the last 10.
i'm with you, i'm not really sure how we lost 5 goals against that lot.

having the same points total as last year is not a positive. it was an easier league this year, with a better squad of players and with it being our second year in it you'd think we'd be able to know what to expect and how to play against teams more. evidently not. Cup runs are all good and well but promotion was the aim this season and Stubbs has failed yet again.


Was it an easier league as The team previously know as RANKERs was a better team this year than last year. My main thought Sean is we had built a team for a league campaign but due to the fact we have done something that very few teams in history (not just in Scotland)have ever done in reaching two finals it has had detrimental impact on our league campaign.

I do believe he made a massive mistake in believing that Cummings and Stokes could play together, as while both are good strikers for some reason they don't click and it had costs us goals

Spot on we all saw it coming! Stokes and Keatings off, Gunnarson and Fontaine on, go 4/5/1 and hold out. They changed it after 60mins with Miller and Hippo coming on so we knew their game plan. Stubbsy doesn't do change.

What I m trying to get across is we find ourselves in a position where two games - which we were the better team in both- have made all the difference as to how many of us feel about our manager. That does not make him a bad manager. If you look at the bigger picture we were two baw hairs away from a very successful season with a Scottish Cup final still to play. This mentality of sacking managers needs to end now while we have one that has potential. It is not good for the players or the club and has done us no good in the past so why do we think it will help us now. If somebody suggested a decent replacement that was a real possibility then I would listen but I don't think there is anyone. A change in manager again would just be another gamble.

And no I m not blaming the fans... We have the best fans in the world that deserve better but maybe we need to try a different approach.

We've lost more games than that mate, we've lost games to part time nobodies and it cost us points!

And this so called 'bad luck'

You make your own luck in the world end of story.

I'm not trying to be funny, I believe it. Hibs, as pleasing as we are to watch......chance after chance after chance gone begging. We simply are not good enough to get out of this league. Great players. Nice manager. But simply not good enough end of story

Who knows what this result will have on the budget for next season, players have not been offered a new contract and probably waiting to see what division we ended up in. Lets hope that it does not turn into a downward spiral and many more years in this division, shocking that it has come to this and owner and chairman should hang their heads in shame at the situation we are in due to their bad decisions.

Rod Petrie is totally 100% responsible for Hibs demise. For Hibs now becoming the worst Hibs in history. Rod Petrie was & is responsible for ALL of this. No questions asked. Rod Petrie MUST leave Hibs NOW!

Why will he learn from this season? He didn't last season when this season we are losing to ***** like Alloa and Dumbarton. He doesn't want to be here regardless. Stubbs will be gone regardless of next week and he has to to be replaced with someone who isn't so nieve and stubborn.

No way he can stay. When we lose the first match of the season he will be under pressure from the get go playing catch up to Dundee Utd or St Mirren.

By Christmas we'll have folk on here telling us 2nd place is still achievable.

Get rid tommorrow. New man in to start preparing for the Petrofac cup, we might have a chance of winning that.

But he won't tho. He made the same mistakes game after game this season as he did last so he hasn't and his stubbornness has hampered the team.

I'll give him the Keatings call because it was needed and proved to be correct.

This is now where Stubbs has to learn.... Play Keatings up top with Stokes next Sat in CF but Stubbs being Stubbs will play Cummings!!

Our front 2 were our best players for a good period of that game.

I hope he has seen that!

As for winning the cup and being a failure..... I would say YES..... As promotion was the priority and that came straight from LD!

Respectfully, I would disagree cf, I think his absolutely embarrassing away record in the league this year to part time teams and his inability to learn from the same mistakes again and again, plus the fact that he has not gotten us promoted for the second year in a row, do in fact make him a bad manager, or at least, not good enough to lead us to where we need to be.

So after seeing more managers than I care to remember have the same issues, how does the next one change our luck? He is a good manager and I'm sure time will show that even if its not at Hibs. Let him have another season as he is getting better year on year

Good to see you are signing an extension paul!!!
