Comparing signing Doidge to when we signed George Best (in a negative way). What an attention seeking dinosaur living in the past.

I’ll tell what was drivel Roger - your tenure of SPFL and forcing clubs to unnecessarily rip up terraces and install a minimum of 10,000 seats to play in top flight, and the less said about tour great idea in throwing out a perfectly good SKy TV deal the better. :clown:

The guys a moron.

His comparison of us spending £250K on a player now to signing an over the hill George Best 40 years ago is just bizarre.

Did he not essentially accuse Leigh Griffiths of making up his mental health issues fairly recently?

When the split was introduced he assured a press conference that no club would ever get a 20/18 away/home split of games. Anyone with any prowess at arithmetic could see that was not so. The man's a failure. I assume he's out of work and trying to get attention?

Giving big jobs to people who think like this is a huge part of why the game in Scotland isn't doing better.

I say isn't doing better - it does appear to be improving, but it seems to be in spit of erses like this.

Well, if the blazers had managed to negotiate a decent TV deal, we would all have more money to compete at the top of the transfer market. If they had put in place a decent coaching network we would be developing more Scottish talent as well.

The clubs can only do so much.

He's ranting away now about apathy, fans wanting European runs and lack of ambition.

Firstly there is no apathy at Hibs; if he had a clue about what was going on he'd be well aware Hibs fans are as engaged as they have been for decades. Secondly the inability to compete in Europe beyond Christmas is at least in part because of the financial crisis he had a major hand in creating. It's also worth making the point that when we allow people who actively talk down our game and encourage people to turn their back on their local teams to reach the upper echelons of power in our game then it's little wonder apathy and lack of ambition can creep in.

Does he even have a real job now? If so christ knows how with his previous track record

Roger Mitchell and Richard Keys in the same room at the same time - the needle on the ********ometer must have been off the dial.

Keys doesn't know what Rangers were so guilty off that they were sent down to the bottom tier. Nobody can tell him. Eh, Dick - is it ok if I call you Dick - maybe nobody can tell you because it never happened. Rangers ceased to exist and then another team called Rangers was fast-tracked into the league to take their place.

Oh, and by the way the old Rangers were only guilty of one thing - industrial level cheating for about 10 years. Happy to help, Dick.

Forest Green Rovers have been one of the most high profile clubs in the UK outside of the usual suspects in the last 5 years because of the way they operate off the pitch and yet this guy who at one time helped run a national football organisation allegedly hasn't heard of them Ö that's all anybody needs to know when assessing his suitability for the job he was in or his right to comment on Scottish football, or Hibs for that matter, in 2019.

Our game has slowly begun to recover from the insanity it went through with the likes of him in charge. Its precisely because we don't spend stupid money we don't have in luxury players that so many clubs made it through the last 10 years Ö its why a relatively modest sum of £250,000 is worthy of comment these days, because if Hibs are spending that its because we can afford to, not because we have begged, borrowed or stolen the money.

Thankfully Scottish football doesn't need any input from failures like Roger Mitchell.
