    Levein on Vanacek when announcing the signing;
    ‘He's a target man and is very good in the air. His hold-up play is impressive as well and he'll be a great addition to the squad.’

    Levein on Vanacek after his debut;
    ‘He was rubbish’

    Proper LOL at this.

    Bravo

    Relegation when they still had every chance of survival was extremely pleasing. It was unfair, which made it all the better

    Losing 2-1 (at home) to a Maltese team on the same night we beat a club like Brøndby 1-0 away definitely ranks highly, perhaps forgotten due to many of the shambles since but that truly was the worst result either of us have suffered in our respective European histories. 'Big team' but
    We're they not the San Marino of European club football? Lost to absolutely everyone but beat Hearts?

    Releasing Jason Cummings and it coming back to bite them on the arse, only to do it with Josh Doig a little further down the line.

    Levein's absolutely mental transfer window where he tried to copy what Stubbs do and sign decent young talent who had failed when they tried to take a step up, but instead started signing players who had been a failure for the likes of ICT.

    One that sticks out for me (and it may have been Cathro’s farewell), was when they drew with Dunfermline at home to go out of the Betfred cup, and still had to play a meaningless game of penalties and got pumped at that as well 😂

    The kicking Russian hats and the 2 fat guys 'fighting' after the AGM a few years back was another moment of comedy gold. Sadly that video, like the Vlad on the pitch one seems to have disappeared.

    And who can forget Rima's golden sticks and pyjama man:

    Budge's cash cow and bake sales.

    Pretending she's a real doctor.

    Getting all her money paid back but not transferring ownership to the fans but when she eventually does, keeping a big chunk (25% ?) even though it's the fans and James Anderson that have ploughed in the money to build the stand and preserve value in the club for her to reap the reward in the future when she sells her share.

    Being a "visionary" by being saying she's cutting wages by 50% 1 day into lockdown then caving in to the player revolt and ending up just reducing the players with a relegation clause in their contract to their contractually agreed post-relegation salary, 1 month earlier than it would have otherwise been. Thereby only saving about £25k.

    Am I imagining that they didnt get the big machinery out before completing the worlds bigliest stand and meaning they had to dig up the pitch at the Roseburn end so they could get under the hight limit?

    An ex director quoted as saying they tried to save the plums from Romanov.

    “He stopped trusting the football professionals and started bringing in his family instead,” Varanavicius said in the wide-raning interview. “His son, his daughter...he started sending faces suggesting what the team should be.

    All whilst the "simple" fans stood idly by.

    Stendel not taking wages to help the club save money..

    Budge appoints Neilson by paying Utd a fee (possibly money she saved from Stendels wages).

    Hiring Neilson without telling Stendel.

    This is a great shout. One of the best penalty shoot outs ever. Utterly meaningless but they had to do it anyway.

    There was the "it's only St Mirren" league cup final that they went on to lose. That was decent.

    Patching Berra to Dundee and then having to ask him to come back.

    Not telling Stendel he was sacked.

    Going for Jack Ross and then pretending they weren't bothered anyway.

    Having an "extensive" manager search then hiring Craig Levein (who was also the Director of Football).

    Craig Levein showing Stendel around after Levein was sacked but didn't go away.

    "Situation, what situation"

    The Office stand.

    Gary Locke as David Brent in the documentary about them.

    The documentary pretending that the most significant game in their season didn't happen.

    The couch jambos on cup final day.

    Natural Order.

    "and breathe..."

    "2-0 half time. The wait goes on for Hibs"

    Marvin Bartley scoring at Tiny
    Saying they'd received applications of the highest calibre then taking ages to eventually "realise" the best candidate was under their noses all along.

    Then after Levein was eventually sacked, saying the next manager would be high-profile, experienced and know the Scottish game then bringing in low-profile Stendel with 1yrs experience at Hannover plus a yr and a bit at Barnsley. I particularly enjoyed the 1st interview where he'd obviously been prompted to say he'd never heard of Hibs but he botched it and let slip he'd never heard of Hearts.
