    2 new season tickets

    The week before the final I bought 2 new season tickets, for me my boy (6). We watched the final together I have never been so distraught. I have seen it all, yet seeing him so upset was a killer.

    On reflection though. I think this has been the most successful season I have ever had as a fan. If we do get another cup win, he is gonna get it as much as I in '07.

    I get the desire to be better and I want to demolish every team. But where did this arrogance come from? What is the basis?

    Your last paragraph is what Iíve been trying to work out myself - particularly this season when there has been such a dramatic overall improvement.

    The team deserved a lot of flak for both performances v St Johnstone - we were actually ok v Hearts and should have won, but itís beyond belief that our own fans (some) are almost mocking 3rd place, 2 semis and a final. Have they been asleep the past 40 years?

    Some so called supporters are behaving like Old Firm fans where they think the team has the divine right to win every match. The result on Saturday was very disappointing but at least Hibs are getting to semis/finals and the league table doesn't lie. Over 38 league games Hibs are the third best team in the country. It wasn't that long ago Hibs spent 3 years in the Championship. Progress is being made, keep the faith. GGTTH.

    Well, I have had a season ticket since 1989, when my did bought my first child's ticket, and we've since been in far, far worse trouble than this during those years. I will be honest, I just can't understand fans calling for a manager's head after such a season, and can only think they have short memories. Don't they remember the defeats at Alloa and Dumbarton not so long ago? Those were the days that made me go berserk, but we have made massive progress, all things considered. If any Hibs fan walks away after Saturday, having stayed around since 2013, they must be completely devoid of logic.

    There's a lot of hysteria around at present but people shouldn't be blind to the fact that for many the performance and application of the side was far far more annoying/concerning than the actual result.

    These things wouldn't make me consider not renewing, I already have, but they are valid points and I find the blanket dismissal of those concerns in the rush to stamp out the over the top general dissent and to brand those making those comments in with the lunatic element a bit distasteful and condescending.

    This isn't the correct thread to be making that statement and my reply isn't directed at the OP but this is one of the few threads that has not descended into carnage yet, so my apologies.

    The dude that posted about ďhundredsĒ not renewing withdrew that - or rather reduced it to ďmanyĒ but when I last checked failed to qualify what he meant. A quick search on Twitter yesterday didnít come up with anything. So whereís this come from Facebook pile-ons?

    Social media is a funny old best.

    As Wullie (the Nostradamus of his time with a codpiece) once wrote:

    ĒLife's but a walking shadow, a poor player,That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,

    And then is heard no more. It is a tale

    Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,

    Signifying nothing.Ē

    Social media drives it. The expectancy to be winning like Celtic and Rangers and nothing else is acceptable. A manager out thread after one of the best seasons in our history. Bizzare.

    Come on now, itís not arrogant to be expecting a better performance from the management and players in such an important game.

    I wrestled with that before posting but I think itís the taking it to the point of not renewing piece thatís baffling the OP if I understood it (but thatís bravado/hearsay)
