Despite Hibs being dreadful the media will still wax lyrical about the apparently great football they play (as well as their big screens). Always staggers me that they don't seem to realise that they play hoofball, not Brazil-esqe silky football.

Completely agree. Balls over the top to Boyle are plans A-Z and if that doesn’t work it’s balls over the top to Boyle.

As much as we rely on Boyce for goals, without Boyle they would struggle even more. Can't wait until the next Derby.

What is ‘Since 1875’? 🤷‍♂️


Not 100% sure myself? Sounds like a group of fans who had some influence both on match days and on social media. Think they created “since 1875” as some sort of fan super club? 
 

Anybody else confirm?

 

Either way the fact this group of “elite” supporters of indeed that’s what they were has gone tits up tells it’s own story.

I was always sceptical that Ronnie was turning down multi million bids for his superstars in the summer.

 

If there is a shred of truth in it however, he will now be cursing at such a monumental cock-up.

Agreed mate, and trust me, he wasn't.

A wee side note to say Jonno has defined what ROTFLMAO means. Freckin genius.

A Hibs mate of mine was at the Dundee game and he said to me the other day he’s glad there’s not a derby soon as based on what he seen of Hibs and us last week in person, he’d fancy us to spank them.

 

Was very impressed with us.

I went past their shitty store in the Gyle yesterday. One bright ginger looking sisterfister pawing at cheap looking rags hanging up but definitely no buying signs there. So in short the penny is not dropping in their second hand charity shop.

I see their wee band of singers has disbanded, dwindled numbers the reason given bit like their support as a whole. Won’t be long now before Ron the Con cashes in. Tick Tock indeed.

They are the gift that keep on giving , delusions of adequacy as per usual. Been funny to see their annual  Christmas slide down the table start early , It's no even Halloween. 

 I've heard a few of them moaning about Ross. Thankfully a bullet we dodged. 

 Be nice if they lost to County...

He probably would as long as he could be bothered which seems to be the problem that Hibs have with him.

It's a good point. We have had talented players who couldn't be bothered or lost interest before. And that does get to me. Give me a Stevenson over a Kingston any day.

 

And yes, I know Kingston had more talent in his left pinky. But it just got to me that he didn't try a leg in most games when he was clearly amazingly talented.

Think it's more Celtic took the foot off the gas at 3-0, and tried to over complicate it in the second half, as opposed to Hibs playing really well


yup, 0-3 and the games over .

Given he has scored 5 league goals this entire year and we have TWO centre halfs with as many as him this season, I’d have to say . . . naw.

Poor man's Keith Wright. Even looks a wee bit like him if he had prince charles ears.

it’s their fans group that was suppose to add atmosphere to the match day experience, used to do banners and flag days etc, think they used to be section 43 , so the fans that wanted to be vocal at the games have jacked it in (pun intended) I am pretty sure the rot is setting in and more importantly THEY KNOW IT .

Ross apparently calling out James Scott to get himself fitter.  It's never a great sign when a manager goes public on something like this.  It tells me he has lost patience with the player and feels the need to publicly shame him to try and get a reaction.

Lovely stuff. Was worried he was going to do well for them. Another waster 👌🏼

I said at the start of the season that Hibs will be relegated and I stick by it.

 

They are in a terrible state financially and they are not getting out of it without selling their best players.  If they lose Boyle, they are ****ed because he won't be replaced.

That **** is a dirty barsteward. Should be nowhere near a professional (🤭) football club.

Didn’t watch the match highlights so this is the first time I’ve seen this.

I think you’ve summed up the situation well. Ross needs to rein him in now.

The best thing is if it does go wrong Ron will drop kick them. 

 

No way he'd put up with the shite, for example Budge got. 

Despite her faults she's transformed us for the long term and would never bin us, even when folk were going to her house and the social media bile campaign was ramped up. 

 

If Hibs fans go to that level and the club is in freefall, he'll lose all interest and punt to the first bidder or worse. 

 

He doesn't give a **** about Hibs, leith, the community or even Edinburgh and Scotland. 

 

He wants to make money. 

If it gets too much hard work he will be gone quicker than Ruth Davidson was when she got offered a seat in the Lords. 

He's in it for himself, nothing else.

If Ross County beat them, they are in trouble, but if they win and say we draw or get beat there is not much in it. 

 

The league will just be tighter. 

 

Hard to tell until 2 rounds of fixtures imo. 

 

Hope you are right tho.

american / foreign owners aren’t in it for the love of the clubs that’s for sure.  We’ve been down that road.  I would not want to be in their shoes or Aberdeens for that matter.

I remember it being something like he is capable of moments but we need more given our situation, only when asked about him as well. 

 

DV was more of a shaming, get fit fatty you're an embarrassment. He deserved it tho, went on holiday and taken the piss out of us.

Sure the Aberdeen guy is originally from Aberdeen. Could be wrong. 

 

Hibs, Dundee and Utd tho....

Tbf Cormack is a Don. Think he genuinely wants success for Aberdeen. Bihger issue for them is his ego and lack of football knowledge. More hands on than you'd maybe want, but unlike Peruvian Ron, pretty genuine connection.

yeah he is , grew up in Denburn Court. He wasn’t the most liked of people and was banned from Pittodrie at one point so that in itself adds credence to the idea its an ego trip for him.

As above , based on his past how much is his ego from an arrogance and how much is  because he had a bit of a poor relationship wi them previously and now wants to go **** you to those people

I see they have brought another American over on trial. Ron’s business plan is there for all to see. No doubt if he’s signed he’ll be talked up as some sort of super star.  He’ll undoubtedly be just as ordinary as the other supposed superstars at the San Giro like Porteous and Doig. Mind you the talking up of them has not exactly brought a rush of clubs wanting them. Despite all the media stuff, they are seen as average.

Why is he referred to as "Peruvian Ron" (I get the second bit).

But I've heard him called "American". Although Peru is South America I suppose.

I fail to see how the media and Hibs fans can’t see the similarity to Romanov without the huge early investment in the team. “Lithuanian nobodys” as Leckie called the stream of players who came over to us. Its ok they are American so we won’t be racist about it 🤷🏻‍♂️

Moneywise they have to pay back their loan to the SG before they can pay director bonuses I believe. I would imagine punting players would circumvent that and Ron could pocket money from the transfers. Maybe someone more clued up could tell us.

Cormack at Aberdeen is in it for the love of the club. He's from up there and got involved because he's a fan. Whether he's willing or able to continue pumping in a few million per year, I don't know. 

 

The Dundee clubs and the weeteam, however...
