    He talks some sheite, they moved the ball quicker than us and pressed better than us, these are things we can do.

    Ever since things started going a bit downhill last year, Leeann has been very quiet. It doesnít sit right with me. Leaders should lead at all times, not just be there to do the PR when things are going well. I think it all feels a bit odd.
    100% agree Something is not right. Only time we hear Dempster now is to ask our fans to fork out yet more money. Lately I have had me family at hospitality and paid a small wedge of cash into HSL as well as my ST. What do I get in return. At least I should expect a decent return o
    from our team on the park but instead I get cheap option lower league footballers that are Highland League standard. Dempster might react when she is sitting in the directors box looking at crowds of 10,000 or less the way things are going

    Stubbs and Heckingbottom are the blue print of the type of coach Hibs want, Lennon wasn't. I'm led to believe Lennon approached us for the job and we thought it too good an opportunity not to go for it but Lennon is a volatile character which proved his undoing. Stubbs had an eye for a player and an excellent assistant in Doolan who got the club, Heckingbottom talks a good game, was an average player and I feel is Cathroesque with his over use if tactics, laptops etc, it looks great on paper but he's unable to convert it onto the pitch.

    Iíd check your tickets, I donít think youíre turning up to Hibs if thatís the case.


    Do you think your security can keep you in purity, you will not shake us off above or below. Scottish friction, Scottish fiction

    I thought the opposite, that Lennon was sitting enjoying his gig for the BBC in Paris when we approached him and he eventually took over when the tv role was finished? I do agree though he seems to be against the blueprint the club has for the club. If that works and we didnít fluke Stubbs fitting like a glove is another matter I suppose.

    Lennon definitely approached us prior to his appointment.

    I hope we go for someone with his passion next time round.

    I canít be bothered even listening to it. Atleast Lennon would apologise for that showing, and Cliff just annoys me even more by skirting round the hard hitting questions. Load as p*sh, learn nothing from these interviews.
    Lennon would have blamed the players as per and take no blame himself.

    Agree about the passion, Lennon is just a spoil brat who knows how to play to the galleries and you fell for it, what did he get banned for in the European game, slitting throat action in the stand, his embarrassing episode with the Morton manager and his countless wind ups to the Huns, he used Hibs to air his views about things, deflection after deflection from him when his team was pish, thinking of his antics at the paedodome.

    Lennon lips won't agree.

    Your attacks on Neil Lennon go beyond mere football-related matters.
    You come across as vindictive and determined to assassinate Neil Lennon's character at every turn.
    It's almost like he personally insulted or upset you in some way.
    Seriously, he is as flawed as you and I, but I at least choose to focus on what he delivered and offered for the greater part of his tenure as the manager of our club on the field- namely, Promotion as Champions and then European qualification with some breath-taking football in front of record crowds.

    And your defence of the man is actually very very creepy, in your eyes he was godlike and no one can ever say anything against him, even if the majority of it is true.

    Even changing your username it's obvious who you are.

    I'm defending his record as manager and the good that he did for our club for the bulk of his tenure.

    I'm not defending his flawed personality.

    What I tend to react against are those who talk down/berate his on-field record whilst simultaneously assassinating his character - mixing the 2 conveniently together to meet an agenda.

    It wreaks of vindictiveness and nothing else.

    I've never seen any previous manager vilified to the same degree - and we have had some corkers like Calderwood and Butcher!

    Oh yes, your comment regarding change of username is actually quite creepy...a bit stalker like!

    To be fair he used the BBC gig to tie down Cummings on another contract, so we got some good out of it

    Most of Lennons signings ranged from very poor to average. Looks like hes continued his trend of wasting massive amounts of money on dross going by how bad that left back theyve brought in is.

    I want him and his team to play as he says he wants them to play, not tell us absolute drivel.

    As for hating him, i have no views on him other than what his team produce on the park, so far i don't rate him much if thats the answer you were looking for.

    He left us in a worse state than when he joined. When he joined we had the most exciting midfield in Scottish football and youngsters coming through. We had gained success from getting in the likes of Fyvie, McGeouch, McGinn who all had sell on value and improved us. He brought in the likes of Big Dave, Swanson, Holt, Whittaker, Milligan who were, to be frank, a waste of money and had no future value for us. It was an unbalanced squad and we should have been investing money in more young players who we had potential to develop further.

    Haha what a load of ***** highland league standard 🙈. Ask yourself the question, how many other people in LD role at other clubs come out and regularly speak, let them do their job I donít care what sheís got to say, Infact what do you want her to say is more relevant? Weíve just been taken over recently and Iím sure sheís got her hands full with that.

    Every manager makes good and bad signings. Marciano, Bogdan, Ambrose, Commons, Omeonga, Allan, Barker, Kamberi, Horgan, MacLaren, Mallan are a bunch from the top of my head who I think have made a good impact.

    Simon Murray did alright in his 6 months here, Holt played an instrumental part in our promotion season. Stokes was brought back as a marquee signing and Ryan Gauld was seen as a coup at the time.

    Iíd love to hear your thoughts on some of our other managers.

    You must have been suicidal for donkeys years watching Hibs!

    Fair play to you for sticking through it. You enjoying the new era any better?!
