    Lee Miller, footballer turned barber

    Apologies if already posted. I used to find this guy irritating as a player, obviously due to the fact he turned out for the yams for a while but also because he had (ironically) a really vile haircut. Seems a decent fella though:

    The fact that he mentions how a Hearts fan used to get his hair styled like him sums up the average yam's total and utter lack of style awareness.

    What was it Irvine Welsh wrote about Hearts fans in Trainspotting? Something about about the 'ultimate anti-style statement'.

    Comes across as a decent bloke. Good luck to him even though he was a Yam.

    Surprised he can stay on his feet long enough to give someone a haircut.

    Yup, a wonky clotheshorse and a pair of clippers? Poor mix.

    I really enjoyed that. It's good to see stuff like this, he came across as a really grounded and decent bloke.
    Best of luck to him. Also seemed like a real 'football' person.

    There can't be many worse things in life than feeling like you have to watch Falkirk games at 4 in the morning.

    I enjoyed it too. Thanks for the link.

    Interesting how he said that he and McCracken spoke to each other dozens of times per day when managing Falkirk - that it basically took over their every waking hour. These are guys who both had long professional careers at a decent enough level and have a shipload of experience between them. I'd imagine that the majority of managers are equally as obsessed and motivated.

    Yet we come on here (myself included) as other fans do elsewhere and know better what team to put out, tactics to play, substitutions to make, etc. and will often slate the manager if he doesn't see things the same way.

    I know message boards are meant for discussion and I'm not criticising anyone - it's just an observation.

    Yes, his hair style was very hearts. A bit like Robbie Replays suit when he rejoined them

    millerís a good guy though

    Remember watching this at the time and racking my brains to try and recall who this guy actually played for ?

    My conclusion : everyone but HIBS

    A big awkward lanky striker all elbows and knees surprised he got a Scotland cap (3)

    Came across as a really nice guy

    Fair play

    My only memory of Lee Miller,was during the last league game of the 2008-2009 season against Aberdeen at Pittodrie.

    Yves Ma-Kalambay had the ball and Lee Miller was walking back to the half way line looking like he was thinking about his holiday.

    Ma-Kalambay launched the ball which then hit Millers back and went straight into the Hibs net.

    Miller didnít have a clue about the goal and Ma-Kalambay didnít have a clue full stop.

    To those who criticise Matt Macey,just remember what we used to have to put up with.

    Makalamby probably had the biggest fall from grace of any of our crap keepers. He was absolutely imperious, oozed confidence in his debut at Tynecastle. Then that happened 😂
    A great day out ruined by the football

    Or the goal at Tynecastle that Simon Brown let go because he thought it was going wide.
