    Board maybe not that bad?

    Can we please give the board a break!They've tried to do well by us!...

    Calderwood- Solid record in England
    Hughes- Fans' (cheap) choice, mistake. The fact that he couldn't string two words together should have been a clue!!
    Mixu- Had done ok. Popular (cheap) choice. mistake.
    Collins- Potentially fantastic. What went wrong?
    Mowbray- INSPIRATIONAL.
    Williamson- Supposedly solid....ahem! Board mistake.
    Sauzee- Who wouldn't have taken him on?
    McLeish- Strong appointment. Best available.
    Duffy- The only obvious blank!
    Miller- Yaaaaaaaawn. Board was too loyal for too long.
    Blackley- Who wouldn't have taken him on?
    Stanton- Who wouldn't have taken him on?
    Auld- Could have done better! But a high class pedigree.
    Ormond- Who else to follow Turnbull? Who wouldn't have taken him on?
    Turnbull- The magician.


    That is one good set of appointments. They didn't all work out. Unfortunately the recent good ones pissed off pretty quick! Money talks!

    Now tell the board they suck!!

    No one can deny that Hibernian FC has seriously under performed for a club of its size over the last 30 years. Apart from the odd League Cup win we have won zip and punched well below our weight. And don;t get me started on how bad our Derby record has been - in a 2 horse race. A few of the appointments have been ok - Turnbull (genius), McLeish (pretty good) and Mowbray (inspired) were all great appointments and brought Hibs fans moments to remember. The rest were basically failures - some of them spectacular.

    Boards are not there to be popular, make the obvious choice, act as lay people or fans. They are there to make the right decisions for the club and on the whole they have failed when it has come to picking a successful manager. In fact their record is so bad, sticking a pin in a list of candidates would probably have given us a better return. From top to bottom, the club looks stale bereft of ambition, self-belief and drive. You can only blame one group for that - the Hibs Board.

    I was reading 6-45pm start and the shareholders join the meeting at 7pm and the other fans protest outside. AGM last 90 mins. Protest wont be anything like 3 hours.

    It is another way for fans to get the message over to the board and STF. We have had enough.

    I got a text saying that Albion Hibs will be at Easter Road from 6.30 to boo every single shareholder and supporter that goes in as it's their fault that were in the state we are NOT the board or Calderwood.

    Funnily enough, I found myself admiring a yellow cardigan the last time I was at Ocean Terminal.

    Was speakingto a G4S official after the match on Saturday and they were saying they had got wind of a protest and that they would be stewarding it accordingly.

    I've got an old puppet of Sprocket from Fraggle Rock. Put a wee suit on it and we're sorted.

    Again Hibs fans putting the boot in, the guys are trying to get the message across that enough is enough, nowt wrong with that, Petrie needs to get the message. If I was back in Edinburgh I would support it aswell. Weve turned into toothless fans. Why do we find it necessary to rip into the ones who are making a stand for the club they love??

    true rubbish idea. we should praise petrie for loosing 1000s of season tick holders, running up millions in operating losses in last few years, no more family silver to sell, product on the park being dire, more managers than hot dinners.

    look forward to hearing from you at the AGM praising Rod.

    Perhaps the punters that cant take anymore of our club falling apart in front of our eyes want to remind STF and the board they have had enough.

    I've just gone past and there are about 15-20 people there, not much of a protest unless they increase in numbers drastically.

    It may be a small one, but i suppose it is still a protest.
