    The players are crap. They should be flayed into action in training instead of all the touchy-feely stuff.

    Get them down to Gullane.

    I was disappointed at the time that we didn't get Appleton.

    Probably still am, but that boat has sailed.
    Bizarrely enough appleton still isnt a 1st team manger anywhere. He is currently coaching at west brom.

    Feared the worst after the way he set us up and played against Celtic at home in the Scottish Cup

    Was delighted he got us into the top six and beat Hearts at Tiny

    Now I fear the worst

    If we lose on Saturday this place aint gonna be pretty

    Maybe not as great as he seemed to think he was, although the reasons he turned us down remain a little hazy.

    And in doing so clawed back something like a 12 or 13 point gap on the yams. I know Hearts were in freefall, but there's no way we'd have caught them if we hadn't brought Hecky in.

    Reportedly wanted a clause where he got 12 months pay if he got sacked. Sounds to me like someone who expected to get sacked.

    I think all football managers think that there's a very good chance that they'll get sacked sooner or later.

    That's right. He was probably getting the sack till he won us the holy grail and became a legend.

    Neil Lennon wasn't sacked according to Leeann Dempster.

    I get the feeling he doesn't want to be here for much longer. I don't think he is a good fit for the club and that he will walk soon.

    Defeat on Saturday sees him away. If Morton get an early goal we will toil to recover as the fans get restless. We rely on cup runs for income and feel good factors as well as the fact that the league cup is a competition we have a chance of winning.

    That was then but this is now

    Football by its nature makes fans fickle

    He needs to turn things around pronto

    Id be surprised. I reckon we could lose the next three games this month and, whilst hed be under a lot of pressure, hed still be in post come the Killie game.

    I don't think there's any chance at all of him leaving if we lose on Saturday.

    Why do you get that feeling? Is it because of one horrendous result? There has been no indication that Ive noticed that hes unsettled or looking to leave anytime soon.

    I think you're right, though he'd be on borrowed time. He absolutely must beat Morton.

    I dont think he will be sacked for ages yet regardless of Saturday against Morton. It would be too early to admit it was a mistake and it would probably ruin Heckys job in football. I hope it comes good, hope more than any expectation.

    Hes been linked away as soon as he got here to Hull who apparently he has connections with the club. I also agree that Scottish football isnt for him. Ibrox and Parkhead maybe the derby, aye, the rest nah.

    You think Ibrox suits him?

    His personal feelings and ambitions? Absolutely.
    In reality for everyone else, naw.

    I have seen nothing from Heckingbottom to take Hibs forward,the style of play,languid and passive,his signings,and his demeanor on matchdays does'nt sit right for me.

    Agree with this, Lennon had us in self-destruct mode, people seem to forget how bad we were in Lennon's last few months in charge. In his last 15 games i think we got 3 wins, we were stinking.
