    Neil Lennon = best Hibs manager we've had for decades: appreciate him while he's here

    We need to back this man to the hilt now.

    -Won Scottish Championship in 1st season (no feat but still had to be secured)
    -Achieved our record top-flight points tally of the modern era
    -Installed a much tougher & resilient mindset, throughout the spine of the team
    -Despite May loss at Tynecastle, we've continued our superiority over Hearts
    -Beat Sevco 2/2 times at Ibrox
    -Beat Celtic & only lost 1/4 league games v Rodgers
    -Beat Brondby away before agony of the penalty shootout
    -Tonight we eliminated a very decent Greek team; a winnable tie v Molde awaits

    Lenny's current record at Easter Road = P96 W50 (52.0%) D30 (31.3%) L16 (16.7%)

    Best in my lifetime. Can we get him to sign a 10 year contract, please Dempster?

    I don't think under any of our previous managers in the modern era we'd have came through that tie.

    Hopefully he’s here for many more years. A quality manager who’s instilled a real attitude in the team, something we’ve been missing for too many years

    I love the fact that he’s done so well for us in Europe, despite not making it to the touch line.

    He’s been on the touch line for 20 minutes out of 550minutes in Europe 😂😂😂. Won 2 ties, and very narrowly missed out in 2016. Absolute hero.

    It’ll be good to see him against Molde.

    Took me a long time to be fully convinced, but hope he stays as long as possible now.

    He's a top manager.

    Stubbsy's achievements are sometimes undermined by the praise we reserve for Taff and Doolan.

    Lennon has a very solid team of his own, and I think Garry Parker deserves great credit. He's been the man in the dugout for these past few games and has guided us through some sticky moments.

    I loved Garry Parker as a player, I really took a shine to him when I was younger and he played in a good Villa team.

    Agreed, took me a while to be fully convinced... but he’s done it!

  18. #17
    He’s done everything that could be asked of him really, perhaps with the exception of a SC run last season.

    I’m quite excited to see what he has up his sleeve for the season ahead considering the goals we are scoring with a squad that by his own admission is a few short.

    Been watching Hibs since the 1960's and seen many a manager come and go, and, for me, only Eddie Turnbull tops Neil Lennon.

    Turnbull made me feel that we could beat anyone on our day and in most cases, did.
    The Tornadoes had grit, fight, skill and class all over the pitch, and were a joy to behold when in full flight. Only the greatest Celtic team in history stopped us dominating Scottish football during the early to mid 70s.

    Likewise, Neil Lennon leaves me feeling exactly the same way - that we can beat anyone on our day. He has instilled a never-say-die mentality in our team and built an even stronger and hard-to-beat unit from Stubbs legacy. His passion is there for all to see. The season ahead promises so much (again) and "hitting the ground running" in these early season European ties serves to convince me even more that, with one or two key additions, we will be right up there challenging the best in the SPL.

    He most certainly is.

    Can't think of anyone close.

    You are supreme Mr Lennon.

    Imagine how good we will be when he's actually allowed in the dugout ffs. We're such a different club these days and it's a joy to be a part of.

    A manager that just gets Hibs. So much passion, compare that to the likes of calderwood who stood on the touch line and could not have looked more less interested if he tried. The players clearly respect him and he won't accept any below par performances.

    Does he over step the mark sometimes? Yes. But I'ts about time Hibs had a bit of nastiness about us, for too long we were far too soft and nicely nicely and it just got us trampled over.

    This is where I am too and I never thought there would be a manager getting close to Ned in my lifetime.

    You guys better watch out. I got called a ‘Lennon sycophant’ on here a week ago for suggesting that he wasn’t a huddie of a manager. Youse are all going to get it tight when a particular poster sees this thread.
