Latest from ER

Brill and McKay of ICT joining in the summer

TB, MM, & SM bringing in nine new players as long as we stay up.

When I findout more names I will let you know.

Kello is better

Dean Brill, Stevie Hammell and Paul McGowan to all sign for Hibs in the summer.

(4)
(16)

Kello, McManus, Miller & Boyd

(2)
(13)

Why is everyone talking about keepers. We have Williams and Sean Murdoch who are two good goalies and arguably the strongest asset to put present squad. Terry better put all the money into out field players.

(3)
(2)

I do agree m8 but he's not been to clever in recent months but I guess they've all been shect

(4)
(1)

And why would people disagree with Kello, McManus, Miller and Boyd? They would HUGELY help us.

If you don't have a strong 3 or 4 players, then you have no chance.
That's how teams like Chelsea had success despite a huge turnover of players.
Cech, Terry, Lampard & Drogba.

(1)
(2)

Williams makes mistakes and is out of contract. I'd have Williams as my 2nd option if Kello doesn't want to come.

Brill from Caley is the new keeper for next season. 100% done
Grumpy gibby the north stand hibby.

(6)
(11)

Underwhelmed

(7)
(4)

One of the best keeper in the league in my opinion. would be a very good signing

(9)
(6)

He is no better than williams and in my opinion is overweight

(7)
(4)

If he is no better than Williams then that will do fine

(4)
(4)

We would make Buffon look poor playing behind Nelson, maybury and McGivern.
Burridge and Leighton turned out ok, give Brill a chance behind a new defence.
gibby the north stand hibby.

(5)
(3)

Overweight? Terry Butcher feeds his players fish and chips after away wins. Brill didn't get that size for no reason early in the season. Once he adapts to salt and sauce it'll be Ben Williams who?
Gibby.

(2)
(4)

Never mind the defence who are we going to get to put the ball in the net - third worst goals for in the Scottish Leagues. Must be the worst attack in Hibs history from a goal scoring point of view.
GGTTH

(4)
(1)

Henry smith to join hibs, not ex jambo keeper. the 1 who plays in goal for Halifax town fc.

(2)
(2)

Bring backjackson and wright both in there late 40s but would do better than what we currently have. shocking watching hibs these days, its as if lots of the players in the side know there onthere way out the door at end of season and don't have any self belief.

You can have a fish supper once a week and still be an extremely fit player.

Freddie Adu to join Hibs on trial in july.

Northumberland Hibee

(4)
(11)

He's brilliant in football manager 2007. So no need for a trial then!

(7)
(1)

Freddy adu was one of the worlds best youth players, in fact he was touted for stardom but like most footballers his attitude stinks, probably fit in well then ah!. I personally am fed up with all these premadonnas. I'd rather have grafters, triers, guys that give 100% that's what we need. Sorry m8 but your gave us far to many bum steers that I can't believe you, I. E Horner & airley.

dean shiels to sign 4 hibs 2 yr deal at end of season. fee believed to be £100,000 agreed with rangers.

(10)
(14)

Good one

Step backwards

100,000 for somebody that can't get a game in the Ramsden's Cup Final. nah, he wasn't that good first time round

(11)
(7)

Good player under jc.

(2)
(4)

We need to stop harping back to old hi bees. We need quality signings like aberdeen made plus good development of young players

(6)
(3)

Handling, Caldwell & Cummings are young and useless. Its all very well saying experienced mixed with youth, but you can't just keep playing youth just in case they're as good as Mowbray era.

Forster, Stanton and Harris are 3 of our best players, which isn't saying much. If you think about it from a "what will help us get 2nd or 3rd view point" then these 3 aren't good enough to start in a team pushing for 3rd.

And before people start slagging, 2nd is achievable next year. I said last season if we sacked Fenlon and got in the right manager that we could get 2nd. Aberdeen finished lower than us last year, got rid of Brown and are now 2nd.

(6)
(3)

Cummings has a lot of potential and can be a big player over 2 years

ED, what games if any do you think Hibs will pick points up from. Eliminate one game straight away, we will take nothing from the Hearts youth team game at ER. What about the other 5? {Ed017's Note - st mirren,thistle and killie all draws at least and I actually belive we will win the derby

(6)
(11)

Hibs 2 aberdeen 1 robson so 37

(3)
(4)

Love your optimism but can't see it.
We let in too many and can't score goals ourselves. This has been going on for weeks now, no reason to think it will change. I pray however that you are right and I am wrong.

(4)
(0)

I'd bet my savings that we will win at least win game.

I expect at least 7 points though.

Booth is back with 3 games to go remember ;)

(3)
(0)

None of the other teams in bottom half are going to lie down. They are all doing something were not doing - scoring goals. Ed don't agree we will win derby. This is going right to the wire for us.

(1)
(4)

I agree right to the wire mate we can't buy a goal at the minute and I don't no why all the optimism about booth he's been an average play for an average 1st division team?

(1)
(4)

We won't be in the play offs so stop moaning and support your team

(3)
(0)

Booth was good for us before he went on loan, he is better than mcgivern anyway

How's this for a scenario Ed.
Far from Hibs being responsible for relegating Hearts, what's the odds on Hearts beating Hibs at ER in 2/3 weeks, and putting us in the play-off position?
Where on earth is our next goal coming from, never mind our next win, for heaven's sake. and please can the players stop telling us how good they are in training, 'cos they're poor when they're plying a school team {Ed017's Note - we start split with st Mirren away.win and we are safe as long as st Mirren dont beat mwell this week.chances that hearts may put us in play off but it needs two st Mirren wins,two hibs defeats and a ten goal turnaround for gd.I wouod say we are four points from safety and im sure we will get these before kilie at er on the last day.

(1)

Aghhhhhhhhhh what's the point.

We're not going to be in the play offs support your side x

(6)

Four games at home we will not loose four possible draws but if the right players with attitude are selected we will get results

(5)

Then we get Dundee in the play offs and who is their manager?

Ed was at the game today what was your take on it? I thought we were rubbish Stanton and watmore only people I thought did well I hate hibs so much I think butcher and Petrie should go hibs fans should protest the players too as they are shocking or worse hibs are the most embarrassing team no fans will turn up next season and why would they? And what for what would the reason be? For those that say give terry some time nah been a hibs fan long enough to know he is a bad manager according to sources that I know butcher is the worse manager that hibs have had and that the players don't want to work under him if he can't motivate the sad players that we have now for a derby game potentially the biggest derby game in league history them there is something wrong. {Ed017's Note - attitude wrong.startin eleven wrong.defence shockin.midfield tried but failed and no attack.attitude is everything and hearts players all had it spot on.

(11)
(11)

This is not butchers team. It needs totally revamping over the summer. Which he'll do. He's not a bad manager. He's just inherited a bad team. He will get it sorted

H18AMT

(18)
(5)

I hope you are right I really do but weather it's butchers team or not he should still be able to get the best out of the players

(14)
(8)

I agree mate we can't keep blaming our managers especially now we have a good one let's give him time, it might not even happen next year may be the year after but he will get it right. The players have had it all there own way for far to long.

(10)
(3)

I think Maybury seriously still prefers Hearts. He literally tries to fail for us against them with obviously over hit passes and shots way over the bar. We all know why Fenlon renewed his contract though, biased.

(5)
(10)

I can only speak for myself but I feel Thomo should have started the game, felt he made a difference when he came on as did the other subsitutes, the games hard enough, why make it harder by not fielding your strongest/best side?

(5)
(4)

Butcher was furious when he found out that the hibs players only train for 2 hours a day. He is trying to change this but the players are not interested in working hard

(4)
(4)

Get a bloody grip butcher will bring in about 7-8 players and he will get it right next season so stop whinging and back your side

(9)
(2)

Thomson should've started, but its not to say he's anything special either.

Heffernan Collins
Craig Stanton Thomson Watmore
Stevenson McGivern Nelson Forster

Should really have been the team. But after seeing Harris, maybe he should've started too! Relief seeing his performance!

(3)
(1)

Heffernan should have played up front with Collins in behind. He can't shoot for toffee but he can bring a ball down and shield it like Mixu used to. There was also no one in midfield drawing players so Stanton could do his thing. Every time he got the ball he was surrounded. Maybury is jut a joke but so were the officials. Two clear pens and a good goal.

(9)
(0)

Mcgivern is the worst player that I have seen in the jersey for years. Butch2r called it wrong. He needs to rrop Mcgivern, taiwo, handling and nelson for the next games.

(1)
(10)

Totally agree mate! Though last season he was the best player ever! As soon as he signed (not on loan) he was terrible! : (

Was at a Sportsmans Dinner last night where the guest speaker was Mark Hateley. I was speaking to him about his old mate Butcher and he reckoned Butcher was loving the job BUT he said that Butcher was frustrated with Petrie who he described as very testing to work with. When you think of it, we have had loads of pretty good managers who don't seem to have fulfilled there potential. It only reinforces my belief that Petrie is the problem and until he goes we will never be the top two or three team we should be. I know some might disagree but just my thoughts!

(17)
(10)

Read some of the other posts most of us agree.

(4)
(7)

Heard exactly the same from ken lewandowski seems to b a constant theme in all these posts just ask rangers if rods hard to deal with.

(4)
(5)

Listen guys I don't believe a word of this nonsence. Personally I don't like Petrie in charge one little bit & yes the guys a muppet & difficult to get on with but the truth is butcher couldn't bring his targets on board in January because we have far to many players. Yes intimately it's rods fault but why would butcher be moaning?. It's not rocket science we can't sign players when we have at least 18 players that are not good enough. I would have loved Rooney here but I do understand why we could only offer him a loan deal. Let's stop the nonsence get behind the team & leith will be like benidorm tomorrow night when we say cheerio to the yams. Patience is a virtue

PRETTY GOOD MANAGERS?

What planet are you on?

Calderwood had a shocking CV!
Fenlon only has a record at pub team level!
Paatelainen was not ready!
Collins hadn't even managed!
Hughes almost got Falkirk relegated even though they had nowhere near the worst squad!

Seriously.

(9)
(3)

Sorry m8 although I agree with you in part, mixu was excellent with killie, Collins won us a cup, John Collins would have been a success if Petrie had giving him a bit of backing. When the players went to petries house he should have told them all to f-off, Collins had the right mentality I e fitness but I guess be just came across the wrong way. Caldwewood has a fantastic cv although not as a number one. Bobby Williamson 6 years at killie, Scottish cup winner & four seasons in Europe, yogi well who knows what happened. The truth is every other team can put a team on the park, Locke, McNamara, Allan Johnston, Danny Lennon so why can't we, all our managers can't all be wrong. The bottom line has to be finances, the wage on offer clearly isn't working as we can't attract quality, I fear this current board are just happy balancing the books, there is no football people on the bored, I live in hope Petrie is ready to open the purse strings but hope is all I have left

(10)
(1)

Yes, pretty good managers who have done okay elsewhere. If your so brilliant let's hear your suggestions of who if you were chairman, You'd have appointed?
Ps I was earth, you?

(0)
(4)

Ed do any of u remember but it's Not just managers have problems with Petrie. Before he took over as chairman, they were resigning every year. The man is a control freak.

(0)
(2)

That's an easy one to answer, I'd appoint butcher clearly the best manager in the league, stop your whining & give the man a chance. The players are absoulutly s**** so let's hope the summer brings a new Hibs

(4)
(0)

HOW does Calderwood have a great CV? Ask Northampton & Forest fans! They will tell you how awful he was as a manager! And everyone knows it's irelevant what someone is like as an assistant if they can't manage.

I said Mixu wasn't ready. He hadn't been at Killie before us, obviously. He learned from his mistakes.

Collins won us a cup, yes. But he was far too strict and he had us playing bad football. Remember that Dunfermline semi and replay? Excruciating!
He also PAID for players like Makalamby and O'Brien who were on good wages!
Petrie never appointed Williamson. Williamson wouldk?e not progressed our youngsters the way Mowbray did, encouraged O'Connor not to shoot & Brown to get throw ins instead of dribbling!

I really don't know how people are so oblivious to the obvious.

(1)
(2)

Williamson couldn't have been that good with the youngsters, tried to swap Riordan and Whittaker for Bobby Mann!

(3)
(0)

Collins bought maka and obrien after Petrie refused to give him 100k to sign Stevie Naismith and 50k to sign Barry robson

(6)
(3)

It was tommy Craig that recommended obrian to Collins, every manager brings in shect players at one time or another & they are judged on this whether good or bad. That's why butcher needs time. He's a proud man he'll be hurting as much as us

(4)
(0)

Collins was a great manager the reason he brought in those players because he was not backed by Petrie for his main targets, Petrie should have never went with the players behind Collins back all for training them too hard, Collins had us playing good football, looking match fit and had a plan B when things weren't going right. One of his signings Donaldson who we let go far to soon look at him now banging them in for Brentford.

TB & MM will get it right once they get shot of the dead wood in the summer but this will only happen if Petrie and the board back him as we need quality.

(2)
(0)

Have full confidence in terry butcher to turn this team around and get them playing decent football, he doesn't need huge amounts of money to build a good team, he proved that at inverness but petrie needs to be more co-operative and splash the cash when needed

Looks like Hibs will be joining the Yams. I think this is the worst Hibs team in their history, what's your thoughts ED? {Ed017's Note - not the worst but the most gutless

(19)
(20)

No the worst. Not only do they have no guts they have no teachnocal ability.

(16)
(6)

I agree that we need new player and Terry will bring in nearly a new team but we won't be in any play offs or be relegated lose the attitude and support your club

(20)
(5)

It's not as bad as bobby williamsons team, wow when I think back how bad they really were. Couple of positives on Saturday, we actually had a decent spell in the first half & I felt Thomson had a fairly decent game, big changes needed let's just hope the tash has the same ambition as butcher

(13)
(8)

What makes you think we won't be in the playoffs. One win in the last 12 games or whatever it is!

(6)
(12)

We won't be in the play offs because we are 7points clear a d the teams below us are worse than us

(17)
(6)

Sorry, I think the teams below us are playing better fotball than us. St Mirren and Partick have recently beaten us. I don't think any of them have squads that know they are going to be emptied at the end of the season and therefore they are going to be much more up for a fight for survival than our mob. I hate having to speak about my team in this way but right now that is how I see it.

(8)
(13)

I've said it again and again we won't be involved in a relegation battle and when Tb gets his squad in we will be top 4

(14)
(5)

Petrie is the one to blame. Has made hibs a mockery in the last 5 years

(11)
(14)

Petries kept us in a great financial position we could have been in hearts position so we still have a lot to thank him for

(15)
(9)

What is hearts position?. we've been shect for years now they are having a shot just like rangers, the problem is in around 5 years hearts will be back & we will still be shect until we get rid of petrie. petrie is a disgrace don't believe what you read, its his fault we were in this debt in the first place

(11)
(11)

What are you talking about?! Hibs are carrying half if the SPL debt.

(3)
(3)

Hibs have a manageable debt of £5m so go back to your own page

(5)
(3)

How much was straiton sold for?

(2)
(5)

Petrie is all about himself. Does not give a goliath beetle about hibs

(2)
(5)

There is no way we will end up in the play-off position, even if we lose every game left. We could be overtaken by one/two teams but not all four. Reason? they all have only 12 points to play for after the split and have to play EACH OTHER so it is impossible for 4 teams to overtake us as they will all be taking points off each other - now can we please put this garbage to bed.

(6)
(2)

Ed the replacement word there is truly outstanding

(0)
(2)

Everyone knows the situation we are in and how poorly we are playing and now the press writing us off too. To get through the next few games the players and fans need to show determination and support; and leave knocking till we see how well tb sorts things out for next season

(5)
(1)

Re petrie square peg in a round hole and to well in to budge now.

(1)
(2)

Hi Guys, from the outside anybody can see that Petrie is at fault, you have a good manager in TB, but if his hands are tied you will see him go at the end of the season, Edinburgh eeds a strong team and at the moment I can, t see that happening, the capital need a premier team, Jambo, s can, t do it, but you can, just don, t win this weekend,

(3)
(3)

Looking at the list of players, I wouldn't say they're the worst, but when you see them play, they really are! None of them can score or defend!

(1)
(0)

If we don't beat Aberdeen, will this be the first season that we haven't beaten a bottom 6 side?!

(0)
(2)

Players are not all bad, I think the problem is that Butcher has told them their contracts will not be renewed and they are not giving a damn.

(2)
(0)

I hope butcher has told them that get rid of them and start again in butcher we trust

17 Mar 2014 00:15:44
Ed I am concerned for hibs one win In eleven is really bad and I am getting sick of it I am willing to give to time but why is the players playing so bad? I think if we get in the play off place we will crumble because of the players and the fact that they don't want to be here the only game I am looking forward to is the derby and I can't see us beating hearts after the Partick game do you think we will improve at all this season? I know there is only eight games or something left but still? {Ed017's Note - not sure about improvement but we will pick up enough points to ensure safety.

(10)
(5)

They are playing as if in a trial not as a team this needs to stop. maybe tel needs to manage and stop motivating

17 Mar 2014 20:31:40
Aberdeen league cup winners after 19 years this was after years off managers coming and going. bringing in avarage players that never took the club anywhere. Appointed a good manager and let him bring in good experanced players. 2nd in league and still in scottish cup. Its time our own club looked at Aberdeen Butcher a good manager and 99% off the fans where happy with his appointment. let's hope he gets to clear the decks and bring in new players in the summer. Its time the board told managers at interviews top 6 or your sacked that the min standard we should allow at Easter Road. If Butcher can't get us top 6 next season he should be told to move on and let someone who can take us forward move in. Question if fenlon was still manager and decided to leave today we would expect Butcher to come in and keep us 7th or 6th so time to step up Terry Butcher as it not happend so far.

(9)
(5)

Barely any of these players will be here next season.

I know its annoying the way we're playing but I'm afraid we're going to have to put up with it until the summer comes.

There's plenty of good players available in summer, so no excuses for not being top 3 next year!

I'm even considering writing a letter to Butcher of all the good players available, in case they're unaware! Missed out on Lyle Taylor in January, who was an obvious signing!

(2)
(4)

What's the point in getting the top six. In the bottom six we get a potential sell out Against hearts,

(1)
(1)

Bottom six your in the playoffs with a huge potential of relegation

(0)
(10)

We're 7 points clear there is no way we are in the playoffs

(8)
(3)

Awful today we will lose against hearts I hope I am wrong but I doubt it I wanted fenlon gone but when you look at it he made an improvement it was only the big games he couldn't win terry I dunno this guy seems clueless to me like one win in twelve games even fenlon wasn't that bad

(6)
(6)

Get real let Tb bring his team in and if it's not right this time next year then criticize support your team and let Tb worry about the players he will get it right

(7)
(1)

Ed am I right that most if not all of the players that are playing p##h are still in contract next year so they aren't going anywhere. I'm thinking of Williams Nelson Hanlon McGivern Robertson Craig Collins heffernan cairney Tudor-jones handling. A full team whose going to take them {Ed017's Note - there are a few out this season

(5)
(6)

Mcgivern is the worst player I have ever seen

(12)
(14)

Thats a bit like picking man of the match in our team?

(3)
(7)

Who disagreed with my comment about all the players leaving and us being awful but just have to accept it until the summer comes?!

Only a handful will still be here.

P. s guy above, Williams & Handling are definitely out of contract, think Cairney is too. The others would make an alright bench.

Ed. Do u still think Butcher is any better than Fenloan? {Ed017's Note - ask me at end of season.

(3)
(6)

It's irrelevant just now, as Fenlon signed all these wastes of spaces.

Judge Butcher on his summer signings. As there's PLENTY of good players out of contract!

We could easily finish 2nd next season if we sign the right players EARLY. Aberdeen signed them in early so that they're settled up there, now they're 2nd. {Ed017's Note - tb job this season is now simple.get enough points to avoid play off.if he does that then we can look forward to next season.

(11)
(0)

Results since he took over shows that with Fenlon's players TB does even worse than Fenlon and his historical management record is far from glorious. According to The Scotsman he is threatening to chuck youngsters in for next game. No he won't. All he has done with the current squad is alienate them by telling them week after week that only one or two of the youngsters get pass marks then he picks most of the same crap players week after week. At least 90% of the squad know they won't play next season IF Butcher is still in charge so what's the point in them trying very hard for Hibs for the rest of this season. Most will get another club of sorts but they will ruin Butcher's reputation permanently.

(3)
(11)

Tb is the man for the job and he will stick the youngsters out next week he's as sick of the player suiting themself when they play as we all are but never ever think he won't come good cause he will and ed stop talking about the play offs we are still 7 points above second bottom hibs are a work in progress and we will be a force just stop all the negativity and support the team

(11)
(3)

I have said from day one that Fenlon should have stayed till end off season and am sure we would have finnished top 6 and still been in scottish cup and maybe looking at 3rd time lucky. The players where 100% behind Fenlon and liked his style off management resuilts would have still been up and down. Buther done nothing and IC are not a great team Butcher had a lot off luck. The object off Fenlon leaving the club was to allow someone to take this group off players to the next level well Butcher doing that and a playoff could be coming our way if he does not get it sorted. Fenlon inproved us from day one and kept us in the spl at that time with poorer players. We need inprovement today not next season. Big Frank was never given the time from the board when he took over so why should Butcher.

(6)
(10)

I have to say Ed I'm now very sceptical for next season, don't get me wrong I have every faith in butcher but my main concern is the basic wage on offer, most players couldn't give two hoots about bonuses but at the end of the week they want to see a decent wage. I know some will say our wages are ok but my concert is they are not ok & I think we'll find it difficult to attract the type of player us hibbys deserve. Ultimately time will tell, but how do we get rid of players that are on 2-3-4 year deals I. E Collins. Unfortunately the laddies just not good enough. A couple of seasons ago I rated booth at left back, just seems like everything we touch turns sour, wages has to be a factor in the players were attracting {Ed017's Note - next season will be a surprise I think.a pleasant one at that.

Big frank woulda came good mixu woulda done better ower bored tack to much to do with first team afares if the players are to comfy in east mains let's get them down portobelow bech running lenths till there sick cold and wet intill thay start promorming on the park

Average wage at er is between £2k and £7k a week we are the 2nd highest wage paying club tb has money to spend

(5)
(5)

Absolute rubbish, the average wage is around £2000, possibly 3k but there is no player on 7k not a hope in hell.

(6)
(4)

Will all you Fenlon "mourners" get a grip. The biggest difference in the team this year is we don't have Griffiths. If Butcher had someone capable of scoring as many goals as Griffiths did then we would have been in the mix for all three trophies. Fenlon had Griffiths but still couldn't make the top six. Butcher has got to work with what he's inherited so get behind him and judge him this time next year.

(7)
(1)

We do have 2nd highest budget, but no way are any on £7k. He'd have allowed Griffiths to be on that MAYBE. But nobody else.

Anyway, to the guy up there saying players won't try cause they know they're leaving, anyway.
Are you serious? If they play good, they get a new contract, simple. If they play badly, they end up in league 2 or Scottish championship. Up to them to have a future in football.

Collins is on £6k

What exactly would you do if you were manager with players like Handling and Collins up front?

Handlings only league goal has been an open goal! That's how bad he is!

What's the story with ben Williams ed? Is he away at the end of the season? I think we should get a new keeper williams isn't good at us anymore {Ed017's Note - no movement as yet

(3)
(6)

Williams was intresting Birmingham city manager lee clark earlier on in season, but due to some of his cock ups a think that's a no go now.

(2)
(7)

Cassillas would look pants behind hoddit and doddit,
better of wi nae c half at least a keeper would know he has to come for ball

(9)
(0)

Ffs 3month ago he was the bees knees now he's pants tell hibs fans really need to have a look at themself get behind the team good and bad ggtth

(9)
(2)

Thats what I just said its not the keeper ffs urself

(2)
(1)

Obviously you don't go to the games m8, we all do go to the games that's the reason we can say Williams has need gash, if you went you would have an opinion. I mentioned to Ed a good few months ago that Williams form had dropped & we needed another keeper to fight for the jersey, NO player should be automatic choice but Williams is because we have no other for the shirt. Footballs always about opinions & your right he was the bees knees a few months ago but his current form is shocking, Iv supported this club when you were in nappies yeah I know a week or two, but go pay your money watch a game then come back on here & tell me they are all fantastic football players but we all know that's never going to happen

(4)
(3)

I'm season ticket holder and have been for 35 years there's dips in every players career but you must back the team through it all it will get better under Tb and his new signings and I'm sure we are going to get a new keeper but I hope Williams stays he is a great keeper going through a blip

(7)
(2)

Williams has need gash? he's no that bad but highlighted as he's exposed constantly by the muppet show in front of him.

(8)
(3)

Williams dropped 4 game v caley thistle. he's going back to England in summer. league 1/2

(1)
(8)

He played and looked ok 2 me?

(5)
(0)

He's going no where and if he does it's offers over £300k

(3)
(3)

How do you make that out? £300k?
Considering Williams is out of contract t the end of the season and can walk for nothing, your talking a lot of hp sauce.

(3)
(3)

He's not going to walk away at the end of the season

(2)
(1)

Kello should be first choice and we haven't approached him yet, we need to get our finger out!

I'd only keep Williams if Kello doesn't want to come and there really is nobody else.

P. s nobody dare disagree just because Kello was at Hearts! He is a class above Williams!

(1)
(8)

Unsure about kello not because he was a yam but the fact he can't get a decent team tells me everything I need to know

Ben Williams saved us a big fail today

tony watt, poised 4 season long loan deal at hibs, as celtic 2 sign shola ameobi on 2yr deal in summer from Newcastle utd. source ameobi drinking in morpeth Northumberland last nite, thursday. Northumberland hibee. {Ed007's Note - How would Ameobi know what Celtic are planning for Watt? If Watt leaves Celtic it will be on a permanent deal, he was sent to Belgium to get him out of Scotland and mature, sending him to Hibs for a season would serve no purpose to Celtic or Watt.}

(4)
(17)

As if Ameobi would even remember who Tony Watt was.

(7)
(1)

Ameobi played against tony watt 4 newcastle in a closed doors game at lennox town just under 2 yrs ago in a closed doors game celtic 11 v a Newcastle utd 11 which included ameobi and steven taylor. said something about the guy who scored v Barcelona is going to 1 of the Edinburgh teams in the summer on loan 4 a season, a presume it can only be hibs as hertz will be down, and ameobi himself is house hunting in Scotland as the deal is done 4 him to sign 4 celts.

(6)
(2)

Who was he drinking with? Lewis Horner by any chance

(3)
(2)

Na it was alan o brian

(3)
(1)

It was phil airey actually as both ameobi and airey live in the morpeth area and are still big pals from when airey was at Newcastle.

(3)
(3)

Shola going to celtic lol, watt going to hibs haha, a Heard Alan shearer is going to rangers, Ian wright maybe going to hearts aswell

(0)

Met shearer very arrogant person, got 2 bin men sacked in ponteland Northumberland for saying hello, alan. shearer replied its mr shearer to you. one of the guys told him to pi. s o. f. shearer rang north tynside council and the 2 guys were sacked. total ars. Northumberland hibee.

Who ever announced the man of the match award at yesterday's match needs shot James Collins? Missed 3 guilt edged chances and is never a 200k signing get butcher out.

(0)
(9)

Aye get him out that's 200k for him and same again for his staff. he can only pee wi the. he's got

(4)
(2)

Fair enough but why was he given the man of the match award he was woeful along with the rest of the team we have only went backwards under butcher

(0)
(5)

Got a wee feeling everything is not going to be good 4 hibs under tb 4 next season, if we don't get off to a good start, the fans will be wanting him out. a no some fans may disagree just now, but just wait and see until after the 10 games mark next season, and if we r not doing as expected, then c wot happens. Northumberland hibee.

(3)
(8)

We will be fine next season. I think there will be big changes at Hibs both on and of the pitch this summer, and I am confident we will have a very good season next season with Terry Butcher's new Hibs team

(5)
(0)

I thinks so too.
New players will come in to improve to the team and, in view of the number of out of contract players that will be away, in numbers.
At first I would expect that supporters expectation will be high but undoubtedly there will be a settling in period as team/ players become used to each other.
Therefore initially results might not go the way we would want them but this will turn.
In that same period some supporters will moaning like hell - look how fickle they are on this site - but it takes time to build a team even with better players.

We havny went backwards without the initial upturn in results wed b in the sheite but wre not yet hence the reaction to supporters. he didn't have 2 come here but he did. ?

(6)

Is he not at court this week for sexual assault?

(14)
(0)

Yes he is at Newcastle crown court this week, had a loan spell at sheff wed earlier on and done ok at that championship level.

(5)
(4)

I doubt TB would have him. He brings too much baggage and is a sex pest. Don't want him anywhere near Hibs. He has been in trouble for not turning up for training. No chance of coming to us. In fact, I doubt if anyone will take him.

(11)
(0)

Pretty sure he was sacked by Swindon
Posed on twitter like a gangster with 2 guns
No thanks gangster and sexual assault he would be perfect for the gunts

(11)

Sure tell said six defenders not s3x offenders

Played very well 4 Newcastle at reserve level.

He just been cleared off all charges!

Yeah but despite today's verdict he still has a lot of dodgy history.
In any event does not have much of a footballing pedigree anyway.
Can't see it happening.

(8)
(1)

Looked up his history - when has he NOT been in bother?
Definitely no thanks.

So if he does come here I think it might be a loan deal ha ha oh ma sides did you get it get him on loan! The loan ranger! I'll git ma coat. La Shiek

Hanlon was shocking last night. shame Taiwo got red carded as he was the only one that really made an effort. Haynes up front ran his socks off to non avail and no service! Craig was completely absent! {Ed017's Note - play offs beckoning

H18AMT

(12)
(6)

Apart from Stanton and possibly Harris if we have 14 out of contract I would build a new team. Don't no why TB has been talking up Hanlon again against a physical forward he does not hack it! Weak link for years, Stevenson too slow, Craig garbage Harris needs a rest and pre season to see if he still has it.

(8)
(3)

Taiwo wouldn't be here if was any better than that, ref told him twice to stop taking the legs from guys and still kept doing it. nieve and cost the game along with hanlon. again nieve just clear ir trying to bring a ball down in his own box with a cf in the box and lost his man second oh and he gave away a pen. play the kids and see how they do then clear out in the summer. i'd gie kt a shot at cmid to bring the whippets on from u 21s

(3)
(4)

Can't wait for the summer clear out!

I'd only keep Forster, McGivern, Harris & Stanton at the moment!

Team I'd want next year is;

Kello
Forster McManus McGivern Taylor-Sinclair
McGregor Davidson
Harris Stanton Doran
Boyd Miller

(7)
(18)

Note Ed's comment at start of this chain about play off's beckoning. I've been saying this for months now and been slagged off about it. TB now spouting the that was unacceptable post match comments that Fenlon did week after week. We've known that for years. The play off's are a real possibility and the Yams will know they can have a part in this by letting the four teams below us win their games against the Yams and then putting all their efforts into beating us. That scenario would make things very difficult for us. Killie, Ross C, Partick and St Mirren have been expecting such a fight and are ready for it. We aren't ready for any kind of fight as we just think we are too big to be in play off spot.

(2)
(4)

I think Williams is getting restless too. maybe more money to be earned in the English leagues? any views on Murdoch being number 1?

(3)
(5)

Kello no thanks Boyle hmmm maybe Miller lol no thanks

(5)
(4)

We will not be in the play offs and can't see hearts letting any team win just to hurt hibs so great a grip get behind the team and stop all yer fantasy s

(7)
(0)

I'm not so sure that playoffs aren't beckoning. Our fixtures before the cut don't offer us the opportunity for many points based on current form. Then when we have to play the bottom teams again our current form doesn't suggest that we have the bottle to put up a fight. I worry.

(1)
(5)

WHO disagreed with my team next year?! And who don't you like in it!

That team would help us get 2nd.

We will never get 2nd next year with Hanlon in defence and Taiwo & Stevenson in midfield.

Oh and adios Collins unless he can prove he's worth the money of a house.

(1)
(4)

12 aside? .

(9)
(0)

Just in case you're not joking, Taylor-Sinclair is one player ;)

(0)
(5)

Mcgivern is basic at best. agree with Stevenson, hanlon, I would also get rid of nel;son, to slow, tiawo, not up to it, keep Robertson, get rid of Collins, heffernan, thomson. Williams is poised 4 a move to championship. hibs have no chance signing boyd, or miller imo. mcpake sometimes a liability with clumsy challenges, let him go. also Caldwell not splm standard. not 2 sure about craig, or forster. infact i'd probably b happy if the lot went exept Stanton and harris and build a completely new team. Northumberland hibee.

(5)
(3)

Think you should re count the players mate. There's you are playing a 4-2-3-2

(7)
(0)

I suppose if we could field 12 players, we would stand a good chance of finishing second, as long as the others can only field 11 of course!

(5)
(0)

Have a word with yourself pal, paul hanlon as had a great season so has lewis stevenson, so they had a bad game, every footballer does, stop acting like a person and get behind the team and support them!

(4)
(1)

Stevie has been great this season despite being mucked about position wise. Has come on a treat since TB put him back to his actual position of wide left midfield and definitely gets stuck in. If nothing else he gives 100% unlike some.
Hanlon, although not the finished article, is still a good player who is still relatively young. Problem is he is sometimes playing in a shaky defence particularly with the full back problem.
Thought he defended weakly for Dundee Utd. 1st goal but having just seen it on TV reckon he got sly nudge to take him off the ball; might have been difficult for ref.!who was gash anyway) but linesman should have seen it.
But then when do they see anything?
Harris has great potential but has not done much since his return.
Defensively he only makes a token half hearted effort. Some of the others can be like this e.g Zoubir.
This puts pressure on the full backs especially when guys like Craig and Roberson not playing.
As somebody shouted on Friday ' If you want to watch the game Harris, buy a ticket"

(3)
(2)

Hamlin is the weakest defender in football history. Flung about like an empty track suit week in, week out. Dreadful

(2)
(1)

Hamlin? Dearie me.

(0)
(0)

Paul hanlon is the worst defeder I have ever seen for hibs, need to get him out that team, liability week in week out dunno what half of you watch every week

(2)
(0)

Sorry Ed. , but don't think play-offs beckoning.
Although Hibs not great last night, people seem to be ignoring Dundee Utd. were a good team.
Personally, don't think Harris did much and his defensive duties non-existent (unlike Cairney who is not afraid to get stuck in) exposing the full back.
Taiwo was off his head committing a bookable foul when he did and almost on the half way line.
Too many young and inexperienced players and would have Thomson and Robertson in midfield giving a bit of experience/steel.
Also think Hibs have played better with 2 central strikers this season.
It's all very fine playing with 2 wide players but if there is nobody in the middle to cross/pass to what is the point.
Also surprised that supporters are not complaining about the fixture list. After Saturdays game, no home game until a MONTH later on 7th April.
The Club, on behalf of the supporters, should be moaning like hell about this especially when they are asking us to spend big bucks on new seasons.
Mind you they will get to see every game, home or away, free of charge including travel while asking the rest of us to fork out.
And they wonder why the Supporters are becoming disillusioned.

26 Feb 2014 15:58:12
Sorry can't give facts but I did get the signings right in the last 2transfer markets.
Any way my guy in the know has said hibs have already spoken to 4 players about signing in the summer one I already knew about was Vincent who I've heard has spoken with Tb and has shook on coming to er the others will talk nearer the time but 2 are from England and 1 from Scotland and there may also be another 2in the pipeline 1 a goalkeeper
Will tell you more if and when I can sorry can't do names at the moment it's more than the guys jobs worth GGTTH {Ed017's Note - vincent signed new ict deal.

(3)
(6)

Anybody can say that they got it right the last two transfer windows - proving it is a different thing.
What makes me laugh is you then prove you are talking a load of brown stuff by talking about Vincent coming to ER, the guy who signed a new deal 2 weeks ago.
Your guy obviously can't read - does he sell the programmes?

(5)
(3)

I am sure Inverness will be shocked to hear Vincent leaving them in the summer despite signing a new deal.
Obviously you have an excellent source of information inside the Club - can't wait to hear what is coming next - I like a good laugh!

(3)
(2)

No he doesn't he's in the office but thanks for asking

(3)
(0)

6month extension but he will come to hibs sorry maybe not in summer but he will come

(2)
(2)

The letters will be coming through the doors next week about the hibs family and TB needs season ticket money! Well I wonder what the hibs PR team will have this year? We will be down two category A games with the Gers and the Jambos in the first division but will we get asked to pay the same price of ticket to watch Dundee or Hamilton? I think we should get all the cup games instead of the top up due to the two home knockouts we had to endure this season any views?

(2)
(0)

Sorry guys my mate has informed me that I got it wrong about Vincent but he may still come next summer as for the rest he has confirmed as the truth

(1)
(1)

Not sure what you mean by 6 months extension?
Vincent has signed new contract with ICT until 2016 (not 6 months but a 30 month deal).
Doubt Tel's long term planning goes that far!
Admit it, your secret source is a programme seller who talks through his rear end.

(2)
(1)

No mate as I've said he works in the main office the last 2seasons I have been given information on signings which has been 90 % correct so I've no worries with the rumours I have given at least 4 players coming in the summer

(1)

Spanish press weekly liga 2 magazine.

(3)
(7)

Don't see much of that magazine down the local newsagent - do they do an English version for the Sottish market?
Anyway is that the same Sandaza who was also at St. Johnstone and Rangers where he got the sack for saying he was only there for the money?
Or perhaps Rangers used it as an excuse to get rid of him as he only managed to score 2 goals in all the time he was there?

(12)
(2)

Its same player who played 4 gers, st johnstone, arabs. free agent.

(3)
(1)

Sandaza looked a quality player wi Utd and St Johnstone worth a try for next season if true.

(1)
(4)

Quality player for utd & at Johnston what game were you watching, I'll be honest I thought he was mince, come on guys utd wanted rid of him, he might have been semi decent at st Johnstone but I see a big change in the way petrie's doing business & I want us to sign quality not quantity, I'm sick of signing shect players just to get us through a sticky spell, the rebuilding starts now, no more squad players, as terry said on Friday none of his players are a dead sert to start, we need players that are dead serts, people you can rely on players you can sat I'm not leaving him out, come on guys, time for the cabbage to push on, we've to many passengers at the minute we don't need any more

mcgivern intresting Carlisle utd.

(3)
(12)

Good don't rate him

(9)
(11)

Played well yesterday gave us stability at fullback that we did not have with Stevenson

(10)
(2)

How much do you think we could get for him if he was to leave?

(1)
(1)

Mcgivern is a great young player, with great prospects, give the guy a break, we all know that that most of the players we have are not good enough to ware the green of the mighty Hibernian fc but every player has let us down, even the ones that were semi good last season I. E Williams & co. The point of the matter is the senior players are letting us down not the youngsters, remember when mcgivern came on loan he was a great player & he's not had the support & guidance he needs as a good up & coming player. I for one am right behind him & the rest of the players. The bottom line is were a mid table team & the more we get on there backs the worst we'll be, god forbid we end up in the play offs. New season, new year, hopefully new team.

(15)
(1)

About £25k at most.

(0)
(7)

Someone else who should look up the word great! McGivern is a decent player most of the time, no a great player, sauzee, latapy, Stanton, were great players!

(5)
(1)

Yeah I Agree but there's nothing saying this lad can't be as good, remember out of the players you mention we only had one as a kid the other two were established, but you are right he is a decent young player with great prospects if coached the right way

(3)
(2)

McGivern gets injured, Hibs defence collapses. Coincidence? Discuss.

(5)
(2)

We haven't got one of the best defences Forster gets caught out and players get in behind him.
Hanlon has probably been our most stable defender. Nelson is a bit slower and may need replaced. McPake still hasn't returned from injury and Mcgivern played well on Saturday

(2)
(3)

Hanlon is pish

(4)
(16)

Do you watch any hibs games at all? Hanlons been our most improved player this season. Been the standout in the defence

(3)
(3)

Mcgivern is basic at best. just launches it forward even when there is no one near him. reminds me of graham Mitchell from the 90s team at hibs, and Mitchell even won a skol cup winners medal in 91. Murphy was our best left back IMO from the last decade or so b4 him ulrik laursen. Northumberland hibee.

(4)
(2)

Well Northumberland hibee I'm 47 m8 and I'd go as far as to say murphey was the best left back Iv ever seen at Easter Road, I also liked laursen but I don't think he was in murpheys class, I spoke to tony Mowbray about murphey & his response was if murphey was two/three inches taller he would have been playing in the English premiership. But to be honest mcleish had a wonderful team

(1)
(2)

We would get about £150000 for mcgivern

Fee being mentioned is between £20/30k

He's not from Sunderland he's actually welsh, currently goalkeeping coach at that massive English club Gateshead, come on m8 it's not jobs for the boys, we need quality. We've had far to many passengers in the past, anyway I wish when someone posts they would give us a source

(12)
(2)

This ex Sunderland Goalkeeper from Sunderland who played at Sunderland under Terry Butcher (while at Sunderland), Did he play during the early 90's in Sunderland, for sure?

Don't think this is going to happen particularly as the guy has health problems.

Yes he played for sunderland early 90s, am sure tony norman was in goal 4 sunderland in 1992 fa cup final loss to Liverpool.

Agree. Apart from him the players were a total disgrace and have been for far far too long. He will get dragged down because there is something rotten to the core at the club. don't know what it is but something is majorly not right.

Do you not think it might be the fans who might be partly at fault. We have been sickened for too long by so many disappointments and poor displays that we tend to get on the players backs at the first opportunity making them play even worse. It seems to me (and I go regularly to matches) that the booing starts as soon as things seem to go wrong and the players' heads drop immediately that happens and consequently they make even more mistakes. What they need in these situations is the full backing of the fans with lots of loud cheering of Hibees, Hibees, Hibees to turn things round.

Pressed disagree by mistake. Your bang on. And too many fans have dillusions of grandeur. But equally the players should have the mental and technical ability to do a lot better than they are.

Not sure about whitmore. He didn't get to the byline and cross. Kept cutting inside a bit like a faster zoubir.

I think they think they are better than they are and forget the fact we still have to scrap to earn the right to play in games, been like this since training ctre opened, too comfy get them back in the transit mini bus up and down arthur seat and wiping the dog muck of the boots, charectar and tema togetherness or buy better players one or the other rqd pay pnuts get.

If you're awful, you need to be told so that you can try harder. We don't want them thinking playing awful is acceptable.

That's why Scotland was so awful for years, the tartan army clapped no matter what like a bunch of muppets

(7)

I think the fans need to realise that the team is a work in progress and Tb will get it right the main problem is where are these so called supporters on a Saturday? Averaging 8000 when we should be filling the ground that is how to help the team and to be a force with great new players not sitting in front of yer telly get off yer bums and support your team. then you can have the right to moan if they don't compete on the pitch

Season ticket holder reply. Spine of team all playing poorly. Williams Neilson Craig and Collins. Stevenson wasted at left back.

(8)
(1)

Yes season ticket holder supporting his team you have a right to say your piece but what has happened to our support we took 30,000 to a cup final if we had a full house of 21,000 every other Saturday we would be competing with septic but cause part time supporters come out every other season for 1-2 games they think they have the right to boo the team get a grip support the team 100% or don't shoot your mouth off

(7)
(1)

I think we are in for a big summer. I would like too see the likes of Mullen, Mcpake, Forster, taiwo, vine and Tudor jones all to leave & see big terry bring in a strong core. 2 defenders 2 midfielders 2 strikers AND I would like too see him bring in a keeper to keep ben on his toes because he becomes complacent because he KNOWS the shirt is his no matter what he does. Butchers knows what he's doing so let's see this season out and look forward too 14/15

Mullen and Vine are already away. Obviously you follow Hibs well.

Forster is a future captain of Hibs, why would we get rid of him?

(5)
(2)

They are only on loan are they not & Forster a future captain? That's a belter. He's a center half playing right back in my opinion a waste of wages

(1)
(5)

Mullen and Vine definitely gone.
Forster only 20 and in all the games inc. debut against Hearts has played fine - definitely one for the future.
One problem both full backs have got at present is that Harris, Zoubir, and Whatmore cannot defend and only go through the motions which exposes the full backs.
When Stevenson and Cairney play, although not as talented going forward, are much more aggressive defensively.
Robertson also grafts hard in midfield.
Forwards and particularly have to defend when necessary.
On Saturday in particular, the defence was having to sling long balls forward because there were no other passing options.
Towards the end as there were 4 forwards the midfield was almost non-existent.
It's all very well playing 4 forwards but this is at the expense of midfield and therefore reduces passing options.
Aye, team didn't play well but not sure Tel got it right particularly with so many inexperienced young players playing from start.
When Tel was getting good results there was always good passing options but lately people seem to disappear.

Any word on what happened behind the scenes with KT?
Taiwo and Zoubir sem to have impressed TB at training, and might be given another chance, Clancy and Vine are away, but KT is as far out of things as before.

(3)
(2)

When heffernan arrived KT said it suited him because he likes to play the ball to feet. He wouldn't like TBs long ball game missing the midfield and would probably tell him that. So probably goodbye KT. Shame as he is our best midfield player.

(7)
(5)

Hedger an arrived under PF though and was in before TB. So it wouldn't really matter? We were playing long balls before TB and MM arrived anyway!

KT had a fall out with MM and he has not featured except as a unused sub since. Writings on the wall.

(4)

News about KT on STV - basically wants to stay at ER to fight for his place despite 2 other offers - not very good ones by the sound of it.
Disagree about Tel and long ball game.
His tactic is to try and get the ball worked into the box quicker so defences have less time to organise - there is a difference between and the standard long ball game which is basically to pump the ball upfield to big forwards and not by faster passing/movement
KT, this season has been a crab passer - everything goes sideways. This may keep possession but all it achieves is to allow opposition to defend in numbers.
KT was a good player one time but, apart from the league cup against Hearts, hasn't done much this season.
Another case of some Hibbys loving old favourites despite not doing a lot when they return.

Thomson will not play again for hibernian unless we get hit by injury. Thomson knows he at the end off his career and will pick up his wages for the rest off the season. Thomson like so many off the ex players that have come back was well past his best and its good that butcher is looking to younger players than old players looking for one last pay day

(7)
(8)

Kevin Thomson is a good enough player to adapt and I believe he will. He knows he has to to if he wants to either get a bigger paying move, or be retained past the expiry of his current contract. The lesser offers may well have been what was needed to galvanise him into action.

(7)
(1)

There always seems to be someone who rates Thomson! :/

All he does is pass it sideways, how does that define being our best midfielder?

He came in half way through last season, when we had already started the bad run, and did nothing to help us league wise.

P. s anyone can have a cup run, before people mention. A season is 38 games, cup is a handful, anyone can fluke a run.

(4)
(11)

Yeah agree.
Possible to reach a cup final, as has happened, without playing a bigger team.
It's the luck of the draw - getting Celtic at Parkhead 1st round is bad news.
Question - how is it Hibs and Hearts regularly draw each other in cup competitions yet Rangers and Celtic seldom do before semi stages.?

(2)
(3)

He still has class, personally i'd like to see him bulk up and prolong his career by stepping back to sweeper or c half like a big frenchman who done the same once he'd lost a wee bit pace- squeezing anoyher couple of years out. at the top.
still remember his scissors step over a few years back against partick midweek, that's why were hibbys.

(5)
(1)

Square balls in the bag. or braille lol

(2)

Ed just read KT in Scotsman. Looks like first texted could be right. TBs style doesn't suit him. He is not the greatest midfielder but surely is better in that position than Robertson or Craig {Ed017's Note - would agree.needs to he more direct though to suit.

(2)
(1)

Some people on here need to get a grip KT is a quality pro who played for us for nothing and marked SB out of the game at ER when Celtic played before the last game.

(3)
(1)

Can still remember telling a bun mate u got best deal, he can play a number of positions and has 2 b better than what we have in one of them gie him a chance just cause he's an attitude doesn't mean he's no good unless its a rod pay as yo play deal? we have injuries he's 2 footed?and on the wage bill would anyone rather have tiawo than him?feck off.

(1)

4 people disagreed with my comment? The delusional fans out on force then!

Great pro? He was desperate to go to Rangers. He claimed to be a Hibs fan, but nobody would act the way he did.

So what if he marked Brown out the game. What does he do against the little games? Sweet F A!

There will always be people who stubbornly back Thomson, Hanlon and Stevenson, and go mental anytime someone criticises them.

(2)
(5)

Yip and always will support them. Three excellent players. don't know if you saw that Stevenson had been voted player of the month by FANS. And the very first time Hanlon misses a game this season we lose 3 goals in the first 30 mins. Think your a bit out of touch personally

(7)
(1)

Almost every manager we have had has played Hanlon and Stevenson at every opportunity. They see the players in training and know exactly what they can do and how good they really are. Managers know a hell of a lot more about the game than the average punter and whilst I am not a great fan of either player I would always bow to a manager's greater knowledge and especially when so many of them have favoured those two players.

I murry done the dirty and he still a hibs fan lg now at celtic it don't matter

Bcause no mater what if u say ill at least double your wages and youll get 3 or 4 champions league games a season of course youll go irrespective of who u support hibs can't offer that

(2)
(0)

Stubbornly? Stupid remark. The stubborn ones are those who don't want to see they are good players and follow the critics like sheep. Like the myth spouted above that Thomson only passes the ball sideways. I suggest you actually watch the players instead of criticising for the sake of it.

We wouldn't have lost wi thomson today, slowing it down no. keeping possesion yes, other team can't score if u keep the ball.

I would have KT in my team before that plodder bottler Liam Craig very poor
