    But werenít we meant to have a set up where if the head coach left there wouldnít be a need for massive upheaval on the back of it?

    Iím not sure anyoneís said anything about sacking him? At all? Iíve actually said on a few threads now I donít want JR sacked.

    I didnít think it would be long until you turned up. Very boring, you seem to be everywhere.

    I donít know anything about Fox but there does seem to be a pattern developing regarding JR and employing his pals

    Maybe Jack has been allowed to expand the back room team now it looks like we will have fans back at the games next year? Wish him the best of luck and hope he helps push us a little further.

    If I'm everywhere then so are you.

    Anyway, I couldn't help but react to more daft criticism.

    It's nothing to do with defending Jack Ross or Hibs, but the moaning for moaning's sake is dragging this place right down.

    Cause you constantly chasing any person with a view thatís the opposite of your own is certainly bringing the place up right enough.

    Come on here almost daily to see you arguing with at least one other poster.

    Iíll leave it there though. Looking back on my initial post, it was a needless comment and probably as far from the truth as possible.

    Sorry. Having a pop at a manager for adding someone he knows to his staff is laughable. If I see someone coming out with stuff like that I'll react.

    You've spattered your negativity over the boards for the past couple of days.I think I'm entitled to post what I think too am I not?

    It's a difficult balancing act between upheaval and giving the manager the tools he asks for. Managers, in general, look for support from directors to provide them with the resources they ask for/need, if they don't get that then it's ammunition should things go wrong. If they do get that and things go wrong then they have to take it on the chin. I am sure we all know that so apologies if coming over as patronising, just wanted to document that point on here as think it's relevant.

    Where's the news about the Liam Fox thing, I can't find it?

    Apparently Hibs tweeted that they'd be announcing some good news at 2.00pm and then announced some good news at 2.00pm.

    Seems to have annoyed a few people.

    Ex-Hearts first team coach Liam Fox is rumoured to be coming in as assistant manager at Tannadice. The 37-year-old spent 10 months as head coach of Cowdenbeath, but left the Blue Brazil languishing at the bottom of League 2 in March 2017 | #DUFC https://t.co/Nd8C4Q191Y

    the chat seems to be if Courts is appointed Fox might be the no 2. I thought fox was a done deal for us too.

    Happy that Fox isn't coming. We've been there before with a dyed in the wool Jambo joining our coaching team and that didn't go too good. He can get tae Fox

    It isn't really all that laughable, if you bring people in you know and they are not Hibs class then it's fine to have a pop. If a manager brings in Championship level brains or skills you end up with a Championship team. I'm not saying that's what's happening with JR just that it's a general rule. So far JR has done well even though he's brought in players from teams below Hibs in the league. I haven't heard good things about Liam Fox but have no idea whether he'd improve us or not. At the end of the day JR will be judged on how Hibs do/perform and so if Liam Fox improves us nothing should be said, otherwise the criticism of bringing in cronies will have weight.

    What managers doesn't bring in his "cronies"?

    All managers do it so why have a poop at Jack Ross specifically? And given that we'll never know the day to day workings of who does exactly what, we'll never know what member of the coaching staff is good or bad.
