The question isn't how long do you want him to be Hibs manager, it's how long do you think he will remain Hibs manager regardless of whether you think he's the Messiah, a very naughty boy or something in between.

It's quite hard to say, if he has a miraculous turn around of results, then it will be very difficult to get rid. Personally I have gone for the By Christmas option, as I think there will be a couple of good results up until then, but it still won't be good enough and I feel we will draw/lose to teams we should be humping.

Canít vote on my phone but Iíd do for Xmas.

I think heís done enough to give himself a few games in a lot of peopleís eyes but I donít think heíll manage to win the vast majority that want him out around completely so heíll always be a couple poor results away from being back to square one.

Relatively soon after the semi final, unless we win it, which I donít see.

I thought he would love away after the Aberdeen game with it being an international break, but the last two games will have convinced the board to keep him. Weíve got three games after that which we should be looking for a good points return from, which should buy him more time, but I think weíll likely stumble through them.

You're not choosing any of the first four options then?

At least through the easier run and I think he'll get some good results through it.

Iíve put through gone by end of Oct. I picked this because unless he does something drastic to get us improving chances and scoring I honestly canít see where our next goal is coming from open play.

i want him gone, like last week but if he does turn it around ( and I hope he does )then fair play and Iíll eat humble pie

Gone before the end of the season. We'll pick up a bit and climb into mid table mediocrity but his stock is so low that every poor result will see us back to the same level of dissatisfaction as after the derby. A suitable job in League One or Two down south will become available and there will be an agreement reached that is mutually beneficial to all parties. Think Bobby Williamson and Plymouth.

I would expect him to stumble on until around March but this team aren't going to reach top 6 hence that has massive failure written all over it so this plus season tickets sales (or lack of) will finally kill him off.

Yeah, because we're doing so well flying high in the league right enough. It's a Hibs forum. It seems a perfectly reasonable question asked.


I think he'll be gone next week if we get hammered on Saturday. A win, draw or a narrow loss and he'll get until after the international break. He must pick up a big amount of points in October and November though considering the fixtures we have.

If we're still in the bottom four at the end of November, he will be sacked.

It isn't negative, it's simply a poll of what the supporters - the soul of the club - are thinking.

Why can't you see the club doing anything? Hibs have sacked many managers.

I voted Xmas. I expect our complete lack of anything going forward to continue to affect results but the Board to hold on far too long before doing anything.

The reality is that we're currently tom kite, and if it continues I and may others will find something more entertaining to do on a Saturday afternoon.

In a few months time he could be a cup winning legend after beating Hearts or Celtic in the final and a few of us (myself included) would look very foolish indeed.

As for reality I've no idea as he's likely won himself some added time so let's see what the next few results go like.

Why bother readingit then? It is a valid question asking for people's opinions. I think he should be given a bit more time but that is only my opinion.

Yep. Another cringeworthy Kickback-esque poll to boot.

Over 54% of votes cast at this point are suggesting a majority of people expect him to be here until at least after Christmas (which is another 14 games minimum), or a good deal longer.

But yeah, 'another negative thread'. :rolleyes:

Would have voted likely to be gone after the Aberdeen game but things have picked up for the CLUB in the last 2 matches so i can see him limping on to the end of the season.

The run of matches against Hamilton, Ross County and Livingston are vital to the club and his survival. He must be looking to beat all of these small teams to drag us up the table or he could be toppled by Ron, who has kept his powder dry too date.

Always the same few sticking the boot into anything on here recently. I donít see them starting threads.

Iím unsure about the poll though, are you allowed to create one if youíve not got a degree in pie charts? 😉

After the Rangers game then the lack of performances against St Johnstone and Morton immediately after, I felt he was a dead man walking and would be gone by the international break depending largely on the Hearts result.

The last 2 games have given some hope with the fight and desire in the team, if still lacking a bit quality, and have tightened up defensively. I think he will get till at least the semi final but more than likely towards the end of November as I don't see us picking up enough good results that will keep him in it much longer than that.

Hope he turns it round but I think we will stutter on till some point in November.

Don't disagree with any of that - but how bad we've been and questions about how poor PH is as a manager have already been done to death in numerous threads on here. I don't understand why we need yet another one with yet another poll on the subject.

Start a new thread then?
A lot of people have posted on the matter and voted.

Itís not done to death either, itís a thread on opinions on how long the club will give the HC which is being voted on more than straight away.

You're absolutely right, which is why this poll isn't on that subject if you read the OP and poll properly.

Impossible to say. If results go as I expect them to then I would expect him to be away within the next 6 weeks.

I think he's going to be in charge until at least the semi final but after that I don't think he'll have much of a shelf life unless we somehow improve our results.

I think you've missed my point. Nobody would be posting a poll asking that question if everything was going well. So the whole exercise is inherently negative. And in my opinion we've had enough of that stuff already.

He did but he wasnít in charge from the beginning. Iíd be surprised if the season carried in with us picking up points at the same rate (or even slightly improved but still not very good) if PH lasted a full season.

I wouldn't be surprised if he's still here at Xmas with the same indifferent results, and the same turgid football that we've witnessed all season, only difference is we've tightened up at the back that has ground out a couple of draws, which he seems to be delighted with.

The Board seem petrified to do anything to address it in the form of signing a couple of decent free agents that are out there too, so as said I expect more of the same.

AGM should be enlightening though, as apparently our new owner said at the Solheim Cup that "these football fans are mad, they want to win every game".:confused:
