Do we have to go through this after every derby at Tynie? Why donít we just work out how to beat them on their own patch?

He said on Thursday he loved his job and the people he was working with and the players. Also said resigning would let the bigots win 9or something along those lines) so he would be going nowhere (fingers crossed)

Nah, unless he's being lined up for somewhere else, I don't see him having better lifestyle than he does just now, he LOVES East Lothian and his golf down there, he loves the slower pace of life compared to the Celtic goldfish bowl.

I smell ***** on this one and guess it's a PrickBack rumour that's grown arms and legs.

Yams cannot beat us in the field, they have a crap manager, crap ground, no songbook, thugs as players and zero class. Their hopes and dreams now revolve around Hibs fortunes. Itís classic Obsessive behaviour.

The rumour began with certain journalists deliberately reporting Neil Lennon's comments out of context. He has no intention of resigning. The club know that and the journalists also know that, which is why the club are not happy with said journalists.

So you're saying it was a breaking rumour on Saturday, and it's an established rumour now - that how these things work?

Or are these two completely separate rumours, about exactly the same thing? :dunno:

Lennon can drift into hyperbole territory occasionally.

Info shared was decent. He did say things to the players after the game.

No, there was a rumour immediately after the press conference on Friday saying he was considering his future in Scottish football. Later on that was clarified when the full 16 minute press conference was put up on you tube and he said he expected to be here for the next year or two so that appeared to put the rumour to bed.

On Saturday night though a new rumour came out that he had told the players after the game he may be off.

I think that makes it two separate rumours but Iím no sure on the technicalities here 😉

That seems harsh. The positives which Lennon has brought to Hibs during his time as manager steamroller any negatives and I would be very disappointed if there's any truth in this latest rumour. If there IS any truth in it and it comes down to the fact he feels he's had enough of the the abuse he's been getting ever since he's played and managed in Scotland then he has my every sympathy and my 100% support. His health issues are well documented and you could see why putting himself in the front line week in week out would get to be too much for anyone, even someone with a tough a skin as Lennon.

after losing Mcginn Mcgeough and Allan what did folk expect

Mcginn, and to an extent Dylan were always going to be nigh on impossible to replace

However, didnt we have more points than the same stage last season a few weeks back?

And we also have to remember we were 2 games away from 2nd spot last year, big budget and the McGinn money but we still never signed Allan and have again too many either loan deals or last minute signings way off the pace and not contributing. Apart from a few players this is his team and it's definitely poorer than last season's.

You would need to be fair and reflect the injuries and Europe plus international breaks meaning much more of a stop start nature. Too early to say it isnt as good IMO.

We've had one bad result.

Lots of teams will lose at Parkhead, very few will make as good a game of it as we did.

Lot of teams lose at Tynecastle, we didn't, in spite of playing 25 minutes or so with 10 men.

We were pish and deserved to lose at home at the weekend. That hasn't happened for a very long time.

I for one really hope he's staying.

I think everyone wants him to stay, if he wants to stay.

Uncertainty isnít good for anyone though so if he has said to the players after the game he may be off thatís not good enough and I hope it happens sooner rather than later.

I expected a better midfielder than Hyndman who has contrubuted absolutely no goals and no assists to replace Allan, mallan has been a good signing and has an incredible shot on him but defensively he leaves a lot to be desired and I've defended slivka a lot over the last year and a half but he really hasn't shown much apart from a couple goals against rangers and Celtic to merit a starting place. Milligan has been good but has suffered from Lennon shifting him into defence. We are still lightweight up top as has been proven by the fact we have Boyle up there. One winger was injury prone before signing is out injured and the other has shown glimpses but that's it.

I don't think it's harsh to criticise our summer recruitment.it was the same this time last year when we had a poor window that summer but people still claimed different.

Hyndman has scored one and been unlucky not to score more imo
But he has yet to impose himself and make himself a guaranteed starter Good Technical player but balance in Midfield wasn't right on Saturday and no one took the game by the scruff of the neck and drove us forward

Hyndman scored against Hamilton. Probably has a few assists as well.

Mallan has more goals than Allan, Mcginn and McGeouch got combined last season

Has Slivka actually had a bad game this season? He's been in strange positions, often on the bench but he's played well when he has played and our best 2 wins score wise (Dundee and Hamilton) had him playing very well. Totally changed the Asteras game when he came on as well.

Boyle played upfront because our 2 main strikers were injured or suspended. How many players do you actually except Hibs to have? What if we signed another striker and no one ever got injured so he never played? That seems like a good use of wages.

BlackSheep
05-11-2018, 05:31 PM
Every Scottish team's forum is rife with this rumour simply cos they all want it to happen.

Lennon has been the best thing to happen to Hibs for a long time, he turned a team that loved to choke into a team willing to battle to the very death.

Most teams fear playing us... including the old firm, and they all have reason to be afraid.

Unfortunately for us, that fear doesn't always work in our favour, especially when we have a bad day or two at the office!

Players or staff who were privy to what was said after the game will tell family or friends before running to the media, more like once the press have heard something that a journalist may get in touch with a player to find out if any truth in the story, talking to the press may backfire on player or staff if he gets caught.

Someone close to Lennon tweeted on Saturday night that we aren't allowed to talk about on here, I mentioned it as well and I heard it from a players mate what Lennon allegedly said, the media will pick up on it soon enough, the two posters on here who have spoke about it would suggest this isn't a load of nonsense.

Hyndman has scored and he has provided an assist - 12 or so games enough time to really judge ? He's a decent player, not helped by recent tinkering of formations. Mallan has scored 9 goals in 19 games and we are only 11 games into the league season ! Slivka isn't helped again by tinkering and being in and out the side, however he hasn't let the side down when I've seen him play.

Really wouldn't surprise me SH, I really think he was close to it after last season's game at Tynecastle after seeing him close hand before and after that game - would be wrong to speculate admittedly but I think he does struggle at times to keep it together due to him being so competitive and not having the personnel to really drive forward his plans / desires. That isn't a dig at Hibs either, just that he wants the club driving forward at a pace that resources won't allow (in my opinion).

Hibs net is a very polarising place and thank the lord it isnít particularly reflective of the wider Hibs support.

There are a group of folk who revel in poor results and canít wait to be all over here stirring ****, then there are the folk who take themselves and football too seriously and jump straight on the bandwagon. There is no reasoning with or persuading these folk.

We are less than a third of the way through the season. There are no consistent trends or patterns to emerge which would give any certainty as to how the season will end up.

We all know we lost three fantastic players, guys who were instrumental in creating such a dynamic side for the last half of the previous season. Anyone with half a brain knows that they were going to be hard, if not impossible to replace, especially on the funds available to the club. Just in case anyone doesnít know, we have the fifth highest income in Scottish football.

I love football and always will. Hibs are my team and always will be. Sometimes we are good, mostly we are gash. I like it better when we are good.

Iím finding this place becoming something negative in my life and itís probably time to step away. Iím reluctant, as like reading peopleís views, even the ones I donít agree with. However, this isnít a healthy place.

Sometimes in life you have to just appreciate what you have. Lennon, warts and all, is a man who can deliver what Hibs need. Failure to recognise this astonishes me.

after losing Mcginn Mcgeough and Allan what did folk expect

Mcginn, and to an extent Dylan were always going to be nigh on impossible to replace

However, didnt we have more points than the same stage last season a few weeks back?

Harsh in the extreme

Folk need to remember where we were 2 seasons ago

No Ďfolkí need to remember how big a club we are in the context of the league and country weíre in and that last season wasnít the pinnacle of achievement but simply a restoration to at least where we should be all the time.

^Excellent post.

Folk have short memories. We had over a decade of absolute dross and are a million miles away from those dark days.

Of course we will have the odd poor performance but Iíll settle for that over the odd good performance per season of yesteryear.

I wouldnít change a thing about Lennon.

This place will be even worse when he does eventually leave in a few years and we go back and settle for some nice namby pamby manager again that does us hee-haw for us.

Weíll finish with more points this season than last.

Really wouldn't surprise me SH, I really think he was close to it after last season's game at Tynecastle after seeing him close hand before and after that game - would be wrong to speculate admittedly but I think he does struggle at times to keep it together due to him being so competitive and not having the personnel to really drive forward his plans / desires. That isn't a dig at Hibs either, just that he wants the club driving forward at a pace that resources won't allow (in my opinion).

I posted a few days ago that he also needs to curb his emotions in the derbies at Tynie - it transmits to the players and they respond negatively. It can be very over-bearing and takes the focus off the football being played on the pitch.


I was just saying a few weeks ago how well Lennon was looking and that he seemed to be in a good place, I would still say the same right now but something has irked him, don't think it's the coin throwing incident, more to do with the abuse he is receiving from the stands and the backing he is not receiving from the club or the SPFL who runs the game, Caldwell and the ex police mans comments must have been a kick in the teeth to Lennon.

Yep, fair comments bud :agree: his health and wellbeing are paramount, he's a top man and a top manager so would be a shame to lose him to the 'fishbowl' mentality that is Scottish football. I was at an event at EM a few months ago and he took time out of Saturday training to speak to those in attendance about mental health, etc. and he was really inspirational. That said, events like last week must affect him. The comments from Les Gray were to be expected, the man is a balloon - and he has previous for aiming criticism at Neil. His previous 'force' couldn't even police U17 Old Firm games properly :aok: anything he comes out with is not worth listening to :agree:

Folk have very short memories

A poor start to the season would have been under Stubbs in Championship or under some of the post Collins numpties

Folk really need a reality check on where we come from.


And some folk just have a passive aggressive online persona I suppose?

:rolleyes:

I neither have a short memory, nor do I need a reality check.

The only point I was making was that we had a fairly slow start last season, and so a similar points haul at this stage is not marvellous.

I could write an essay explaining context (summary: Lennon has obviously done better in the League than Stubbs). Or I could just ask that you lighten up a bit, which would take a lot less time.

we are hibs
05-11-2018, 06:35 PM
Do you only look at the negatives in every aspect of life or simply Hibs?

Hyndman scored against Hamilton. Probably has a few assists as well.

Mallan has more goals than Allan, Mcginn and McGeouch got combined last season

Has Slivka actually had a bad game this season? He's been in strange positions, often on the bench but he's played well when he has played and our best 2 wins score wise (Dundee and Hamilton) had him playing very well. Totally changed the Asteras game when he came on as well.

Boyle played upfront because our 2 main strikers were injured or suspended. How many players do you actually except Hibs to have? What if we signed another striker and no one ever got injured so he never played? That seems like a good use of wages.

You said you didn't know who I was the other day so how would you know what my outlook on hibs or life is? Has slivka had a good game this season? What did he do against Hamilton and asteras that merits him playing well? Lennon hasn't helped by playing him out of position but when he's been played central he hasn't done himself any favours. I don't think it's unreasonable to have 4 strikers in a squad when we play with 2 up.

My bad on the Hyndman One, read a stat on Twitter from that agent Scotland the other day that he hadn't scored and assisted yet. Still hasn't done enough and doesn't do enough when he finds space.

jacomo
05-11-2018, 06:38 PM
Hyndman has scored one and been unlucky not to score more imo
But he has yet to impose himself and make himself a guaranteed starter Good Technical player but balance in Midfield wasn't right on Saturday and no one took the game by the scruff of the neck and drove us forward

Slivka should also do this more but seems unable to impose himself enough.

We have been consistently inconsistent so far this season..thats the problem. It also wasn't impossible to replace them on "our budget" after all we signed all 3 within a lower budget. People said we couldn't replace Allan 3 years ago and signed Henderson and mcginn. It's not impossible at all and we could have done a better job in the summer. People's refusal to recognise that is more astonishing

My overall take on this is that when you look at Neil's 'actions' and the punishments he has received from the authorities, and thereafter look at what the authorities themselves are doing (or not doing) in relation to the main crux - abuse (physical, written and verbal) and religious bigotry - then you have to see it from his point of view. Here's a man who gets bans for performing an 'aeroplane' gesture yet the main men in charge do NOTHING to back him regards the abuse he gets constantly from the stands. Yes, you could argue he could rein it in (and I have) - but think about proportionality - when has Regan, Doncaster, McRae, etc. ever come out with statements against the bile that comes from the stands ? Ever ?

Michael Stewart was bang on at the weekend - enough is enough - and the powers that be need to come out and make a firm stand against it. Funny how Morelos was hit by a coin, after giving it the big cheese after scoring (why not, he's scored a cracker), yet there is not the same media furore ? Shocking he was struck by a coin, idiot fan yet again, but no real media fuss ? Is sectarianism and coin throwing now the social norm as far as the authorities are concerned ? Seems to be the case ! Do we decide who gets press and who doesn't ?

Websites such as Rangers Media should be shut down for a start - it peddles bile, bigotry and is allowed to stay online - why ? Surely the police and their 'Focus' officers see this and have an opinion ? It goes way beyond freedom of speech or expression - it's racial and religious hatred - full stop.

Enough is enough, Lennon is correct on that aspect. And he is getting zero support from the media and the powers that be. If society is to change it's moral compass we need a strong set of individuals in charge of the game with no agenda. Won't happen in my lifetime I reckon. Money and 'power' = keeping the status quo for many of these imbeciles in charge.

Hyndman and Slivka, on the whole, have failed to deliver and contribute significantly to the Hibs cause.

Sporadic bits of clever play here and there from each player is simply not good enough if we are to sustain a serious challenge for a top 4 placing.

Slivka, in particular, has been here far longer than Hyndeman and still we are waiting for him to deliver regular match-winning performances and to play to a high level consistently.

For me, he is no more than a squad filler - a neat and tidy player who can do an adequate wee job coming off the bench for the last 10 minutes of a game we have in the bag.

You've got to give up the Petrie hating C.

In the last twenty years we have played well and succeeded under McLeish, Mowbray, Collins, Stubbs and Lennon.

Our club has been in existence for nearly 150 years. We've won 20% of our trophies under the stewardship of RP, by your definition. That is success in relative terms.

We could do better, maybe should do better, but maybe expectations are out of kilter with reality?

And that then becomes a weapon to slate the ownership and management, made all the easier by throwaway vehicles like social media that create a narrative that isn't backed up by fact.

100%.

NL has got us back to where we belong pretty quickly, good work in doing so.

Our next challenge as a club, and that's everybody not just NL, is to push on and make sure we perform consistently in the top 4 at the very least in the top league, with regular finals into the bargain in the cups.

And that's where NLs bad loser / ambition may kick in......if we fail to achieve what we all aspire to he may well move on. However worth pointing out that he's not alone in carrying the can IF we don't achieve something like what's highlighted above. Because, as Speedway observes, that's where we should be.

Players or staff who were privy to what was said after the game will tell family or friends before running to the media, more like once the press have heard something that a journalist may get in touch with a player to find out if any truth in the story, talking to the press may backfire on player or staff if he gets caught.

Someone close to Lennon tweeted on Saturday night that we aren't allowed to talk about on here, I mentioned it as well and I heard it from a players mate what Lennon allegedly said, the media will pick up on it soon enough, the two posters on here who have spoke about it would suggest this isn't a load of nonsense.

Michael Stewart was bang on at the weekend - enough is enough - and the powers that be need to come out and make a firm stand against it. Funny how Morelos was hit by a coin, after giving it the big cheese after scoring (why not, he's scored a cracker), yet there is not the same media furore ? Shocking he was struck by a coin, idiot fan yet again, but no real media fuss ? Is sectarianism and coin throwing now the social norm as far as the authorities are concerned ? Seems to be the case ! Do we decide who gets press and who doesn't ?

Websites such as Rangers Media should be shut down for a start - it peddles bile, bigotry and is allowed to stay online - why ? Surely the police and their 'Focus' officers see this and have an opinion ? It goes way beyond freedom of speech or expression - it's racial and religious hatred - full stop.

Enough is enough, Lennon is correct on that aspect. And he is getting zero support from the media and the powers that be. If society is to change it's moral compass we need a strong set of individuals in charge of the game with no agenda. Won't happen in my lifetime I reckon. Money and 'power' = keeping the status quo for many of these imbeciles in charge.

Great post agree with every word. Shameful lack of leadership by football authorities.

Our budget isnít the 7th biggest though. Success for me is performing at least in line with our budget each year.

I think most people would agree with you, but the fact is that we are perennial underachievers.

The only consolation is that it makes the European qualifications and cup wins even sweeter when they do eventually happen.

I find this all a bit bizarre and a wee bit unsettling. I donít have a great feeling that he will be here for long, hope Iím wrong.

Am I reading his right that somethingís been said after the game and we arenít allowed to post it on here those that know what it was that was said or caveat allegedly said?

This has got a bit of the ďMixuís goneĒ feeling to it (albeit he did eventually go).

If he were to go, donít think he owes us anything, first two seasons heís either matched or exceeded expectations. Also must be our longest serving manager since... GJP?

Fridays Performance by the Team will go a long way to indicating if things have. been said in the dressing room that have unsettled the unity which has been excellent of late
Am sureennon wouldn't of been happy as I know I wasnt as it's the first game in ages that I thought this is such a poor prrformance I wouldn't want this repeated against Aberdeen or we would get beat
Am sure he probably let rip and said things in the heat of the moment given the Derby Aftermath
But he clearly wasn't happy in lead up to the game and am sure he will reflect on things
But I expect him to be in in the Dugout at Pittodtie Masterminding a Wiin

We're watching you.

Neil Donaster had urged clubs to install cctv to root out the morons throwing coins and other objects, sweep sweep sweep, no mention of the morons abusing Lennon, and he can hear that loud and clear when he watches games, plonker so he is.

Yes it is...and something you've never heard Petrie say during his twenty year tenure, largely presiding over mediocrity during that time.

That's not true.

Petrie often said that Hibs aim was to be challenging at the top of the league and for European qualification.

And some folk just have a passive aggressive online persona I suppose?

:rolleyes:

I neither have a short memory, nor do I need a reality check.

The only point I was making was that we had a fairly slow start last season, and so a similar points haul at this stage is not marvellous.

I could write an essay explaining context (summary: Lennon has obviously done better in the League than Stubbs). Or I could just ask that you lighten up a bit, which would take a lot less time.

What is this passive aggressive nonsense I see posted on hear every other week?

I am educated to degree standard and it means absolutely nothing to me.

Is this the latest buzzword for would be academics or would be psycho analysts?

You made a point I disagreed with without animosity in my reply.

If that makes me passive, aggressive or a mixture of both or whatever then I am guilty as charged.

It also wont stop me responding to posts I disagree with and if it did there would be no point in Hibs Net.

To answer your point though it is neither marvellous nor tragic and with respect if any of us need to lighten up you should be looking closer to home.

That seems harsh. The positives which Lennon has brought to Hibs during his time as manager steamroller any negatives and I would be very disappointed if there's any truth in this latest rumour. If there IS any truth in it and it comes down to the fact he feels he's had enough of the the abuse he's been getting ever since he's played and managed in Scotland then he has my every sympathy and my 100% support. His health issues are well documented and you could see why putting himself in the front line week in week out would get to be too much for anyone, even someone with a tough a skin as Lennon.


I would hate to lose Lenny
But I totally agree with your post.

Undermines the club and everything we are striving to achieve if the managers position has a question mark hovering over it. Iím not sure if Lennon created this uncertainty this time but he certainly did last season. Iím thinking of it in terms of future players who might not want to come to a club with such uncertainty, players who are already at the club might also suffer. Supporters buying tickets/ season tickets can suffer. All this needs put to bed by either Lenny or someone at the club because all this negativity isnít good at all. A win on Friday evening would give everyone at the club a much needed lift. :flag:

We could do with milligan at dťfensive mid, for a start.
mallan in front of him.
Porteous at centre half.
Boyle on the right.
horgan wide left.
then either flo/Jamie Mac up top
or Flo with hyndman just off.

the line up v Celtic, hearts and saints wasnt at the races.

We need Flo and MacLaren up front, the problem is the imbalance on getting the defence and midfield right to support them, do we go with wing backs or wingers? Gray wide right or Boyle?

For me we need to find our best team and stabilise things a bit. Lennon has been over tinkering for the sake of it at times.

Yes but I have been sworn to secrecy...

But in all seriousness, when we did have a solid base there we were winning games, tinkering for the sake of it, dropping Milligan back into defence for example, has not helped keep that settled team, which is important especially when we have an all new midfield.
