It's only just come to my attention that they're trying to raise money for the academy through a ****ing lottery, I can't believe it lol

That's unreal, I can't think of anything worse especially given the fact they've got a shiny yank owner.

 

Maybe they should just sell Nisbet for his 500 million pound asking price and they can reopen the academy?

Is that the same as the half time draw?  One of my good mates who played for them (big jambo too) had to stand in the stadium before the games and sell they tickets as he was in the youth team and the profits go to that? 

 

Ironic article though that they miss out Kevin Thomson.  Sure he played for them for **** all a few years back and was is a hibs fan but seems staunch as anything these days.

I like the quote from Sporting Director Graeme Mathie.  Oh wait, has he not just been punted!

Semi related note - I see Hibs are jumping in with food places (Uber Eats is one) and handing out discounts. Presumably it's a benefit to the club financially but it cements the idea that the fans are just customers. Wonder who drove this idea behind the scenes...

I have it on good authority that there was no concrete interest in Doig, Porteous and Nisbet over the summer despite Hibs’ attempts of whoring them out of the club. 

 

If I am not mistaken Hibs’ former head of communications who left towards the tail end of last season previously worked in certain media organisations in Scotland. Clearly a pattern there. I assume the new guy has similar connections. 

 

I actually think Nisbet is decent but he’s hardly scored a goal in 2021. Doig is also alright but was targeted in all games at Hampden last season, starting with our win over them.

 

I previously though that Porteous had the building blocks to be a decent centre back but after his showing in the derby I am beginning to think otherwise, 90 minutes of hoofing the ball to nobody plus he got away with numerous mistakes in the first half especially. 

 

As for Ron Gordon, Hibs are in the mud. He owns all their assets outright but seems to not want to really invest in the team. The McGrath attempt was clearly a rouse to sack Mathie. The deal was never ever going to happen with minutes to go in the window. But they have a new big screen!

I know an ex Hibs youth coach. He told me just before this season started that nisbet was a lazy guy and player who was alright on his day, but there weren’t many of them.  He doesn’t believe hibs ever got any offer of 500-750k for him previously, he said Hibs would have taken that no questions if it was true

It's got all the makings of the Romanov dynasty - without the cash investment.  Vlad and Rodney running the show.

 

If I supported them I'd be getting concerned.

Yip, we know that to be true. I’d go on a conference call with 2 from our side and about 15 from theirs. 😄

They will still try and put a positive spin on it. WTF does this guy know about Scottish football. I wouldn’t be comfortable with a guy that uses phrases like ‘offense’ and ‘out of bounds’ as head of recruitment at Hearts.

"Are they no' deid yet?"

 

That question was a goto on the Sergey/Bajillions thread they fux, and their £10 lighter fanboys, loved so much.

 

I suspect the Hearts support would be divided if/when Ron pulls the plug and Hibernian FC hit the buffers, again.

 

Some would like them to survive for all the future derby wins, some would want them liquidated and to suffer long term...

 

Me?

 

Hibs deid.

 

Asap.

 

FTHibs.

Posted the above before I read dotnut's take on it.

 

Now even happier.

 

So long and thanks for all the derby wins...

Especially when they've announced they won't be replacing Mathie as Sporting Director as they prefer a more streamlined structure.  So that means their CEO becomes de facto Sporting Director and the owner's son will head up recruitment.

 

I suspect the son will be doing this as part of his overall remit within the family business, i.e. he ain't getting paid anything extra for taking on this role.

Is anyone over on Ron.net asking serious questions of this?

 

If they have any sense they will learn from us and get up to speed with what might be happening early doors. 
 

Hopefully not.

The irony of the others that are not worried are the same ones who were laughing when Rodney got appointed.

 

They are a Ron's bank being sponsors away from a full mad vlad.
