Hopeless Hibs Lose Derby

Hopeless Hibs Lose Derby

The fans are abandoning the team in droves and after yet another abject performance, this time in a local Derby, it's easy to see why Hibs supporters have had enough.

The side only started playing once they found themselves 2 goals behind to an, at best mediocre, Hearts outfit but that statement alone tells you everything that's wrong with the current Hibs side.

Let's not beat about the bush. They stink.

Barring possibly Kevin Thomson there's not many who can hold their heads high after another abject performance and this statement includes manager Terry Butcher.

It's highly likely some of the Easter Road side's stars will meander up to George Street tonight looking to impress the ladies - forget them boys - how about trying to impress the paying public in the stands?

Quite simply, Hibs stink.

From the top to the bottom the whole culture has to change.

Rod Petrie has overstayed his welcome and despite running a tight ship finds himself the target of fans frustrations who see him as a money rather than football man are becoming more vociferous every week.

Terry Butcher was appointed in November and as such big things were expected of him.

Since taking charge at the helm however Hibs have been dire.

The current run of one win in 16 games should be enough to see him get the bullet but it's unlikely the board will risk this due to the financial costs.

It's worth remembering club legend Franck Sauzee was sacked for a similar run of results despite being a managerial novice. What's Butcher's excuse?

The brand of football the supporters are being asked to watch makes the eyes bleed - it's worse than under predecessor Pat Fenlon.

The players need to take a good, hard look at themselves as well.

Fair enough Butcher's hoofball tactics aren't aesthetic on the eye but they should be fairly simple for a professional footballer to understand.

Instead of being pampered at the East Mains training base it's about time the squad were taught about what it means to make a proper living.

Get them down to the sand dunes at Gullane or have them run up and down Arthur's Seat until they beg for forgiveness - Perhaps then they may realise how fortunate a profession they're in. If they can't see it then let them go - they can ply their trade in the Outer Mongolian League as far as the majority of Hibs fans care.

Tough Test For Hibs In Derby

Hibs make the cross city trip to Tynecastle for the second year running in the Scottish Cup fifth round and a similar performance to the one which saw them rescue a draw from being 2 behind will be required if they wish to progress to the Cup quarter finals.

Neil Lennon's side are huge underdogs going into the match despite being the current holders of the trophy and know the Jambo's are itching for revenge following their capitulation in last season's tournament.
