In Hindsight - Tommy Wright

In hindsight CL should have gone after the final and the new manager brought in then with a full window.

 

Further hindsight, something that I warned about is that having not sacked CL in the summer, sacking him when we did was very poor in the timing.

Many wanted CL just gone, but sacking him before Decembers run of games and then putting a guy like Stendel in charge was a massive risk.

 

Having not sacked CL in the summer past, he should have seen the season out and been replaced this summer, although I can see why he was sacked.

 

Stendel getting the job in the summer would have been fantastic. 

 

Tommy wright is not the answer to our long term plans but right now we need the short term fixed asap.

 

Wright would not take a 1 year rolling contract anyway, who would ? Terrible for the individual unless getting paid well over the normal rate.


Spot on. We had a year of the worst injuries in our clubs history under Levein. Then just as all the players were coming back, Levein was sacked. Budge should have held her never for a little bit longer. We just don’t have the players to play the Stendel system. A Celtic supporting mate asked, why we were playing such a high line when we don’t have the pace of physicality to implement it. That’s based on 90 mins of watching us!

You are on form.

 

Everything you post is bang on.

 

Posters- Get Robbie/ cl to ****, eye bleeding football.

Same posters- Wright is the answer.

 

Posters- I don't mind getting beat if we try to win, we should always try to win.

Same posters- we should rest key players in the cup and away to celtic as we'll get beat anyway/ cup not important.

 

Posters- Just sack CL, it can't get any worse, anything is better.

Same posters- Stendel is not the answer, things are getting worse.

 

 

Posters ( under cl) - We need to attack and press high, do that and we'll win ( despite being told that it is not a god like tactic).

Same posters ( now)- We are pressing too high and getting caught out, we need to defend better.

 

 

Posters- Yes, Berra is gone, too slow, too old, we'll crack on now.

Same posters- aw naw, we are worse in the air and the defence is unbalanced as we don't have a left sided centre half.

 

 

Also, at the same time  not seeing the irony in Wright turning it round as he was given time to us sacking CL .

That is the icing on the big fat, shit Irony cake 

 

Melons is the perfect summary

 

 

I don’t always agree with you but this is so true. Some people don’t know what they want and want it all fixed in a couple of weeks. I for one am not putting  my head in the sand regarding possible relegation, but  the manager needs time ( and a bit of luck at the moment) but hopefully we manage to stay up and I will judge him on next season. The last few seasons under Levein the football has been boring and we all wanted a change. We’ve now got a forward thinking manager we now have to back him.

In hindsight we should have. With all the attacking players fit we'd have got enough points under Levein to stay up. We could then have changed the entire footballing philosophy in the summer, when it would be appropriate to make such sweeping changes. January window while embroiled in a relegation battle was always a dangerous game to play.

We're in a relegation battle and we need someone that knows the score and consistently has a team with a budget of pennies punching above their weight. 

 

When a team faces a relegation battle in the english premiership, they don't sign some new guy on the block with an attacking mind set, they sign sam allardyce.

 

 

replace Levein with a very slightly better Levein?  No ta.

Well you said in our history.

So you must have facts to back this up.

Didn't think you would. 

Just making stuff up as usual.

Whatever the merits, or not, of Daniel Stendel being our current manager, suggesting that Craig Levein should have continued are without logic.

He had got himself into a state of such unpopularity with most of the fans that there was no possibility of redemption. I know of a few people who didn’t renew season tickets because of him.
Managers just don’t recover from those levels of displeasure from fans, of any club. Most hoped he would go after the cup final. Then every week that went by into Autumn, the calls for him to be replaced grew louder. When he was taken off the manager role, many still were up in arms that he still had a role at the club.
He is, arguably, the most divisive figure that club has had in my lifetime. He seemed to thrive on his unpopularity within the media and wasn’t slow to aggravate other managers either. The “Natural Order” quip, whilst funny for us, severely aggravated the Hibernian manager. No problem there, we might think.

The injury situation was said by most to be something that was due to the way the players were being trained. Even impact injuries were somehow his fault for many. It wasn’t bad luck, it was him. 
Now it’s being said that although our record was terrible over the last while, he was just unlucky with injuries and we would have been better sticking with him.

Memories can’t be that short. The football was turgid. Results were terrible. Contracts given to players that were not good enough. The turnover of players indicated a scatter gun approach to recruitment.

He should have resigned much earlier as payback to the loyalty given to him by Ann Budge.

Tommy Wright would not have been the answer.  Steve Robinson, Robbie Neilson or Jack Ross would have all been better appointments IMO.

 

The best answer would have been to not let Robbie leave in the first place ... but that won't sit well with certain parts of our support. Planes flying over tynecastle asking for him to be sacked ...... that's the point it all started to turn South.

I’m confused. We should have but didn’t,  but seemingly have just given Tommy Wright a contract despite the fact he’s still employed elsewhere?

 

Is that Hibs logic?
