  1. In the premiership hopefully! We're not so far behind the pace now. A top four finish is do-able and then anything can happen.
  2. Strange though it seems the last season we spent in the first division was probably about the most enjoyable imho but then we had a new manager who for all his faults had started a fairly successful re-build well before relegation. Despite a shaky start we were on the way up pretty quickly. This time the omens are less encouraging. Whatever else, we're in for interesting times
  3. Certainly don't condone any violence if the outraged Rangers account is true but from TV pictures it looked as though the vast majority of Hibs fans were just exuberant much as we were at Ayr Utd or in final game 09/10. Interestingly it was claimed on BBC that Rangers fans were also invading pitch.
  4. I accept that this kind of appointment can and has worked at both this and other clubs and that any appointment is always a gamble. I just don't think that this is the right gamble to take at this time. I'd rather see him as assistant to someone with a respected managerial CV who can re-instil confidence and attract quality players to the club as this seems to be a major issue right now.
  5. McCall- good guy Foran- good guy Butcher- rank Barry V Ferguson- seriously?
  6. Hope this is not true. No disrespect to Ritchie as he has given the club great service but he needs to prove himself with managerial experience in lower leagues and is not what we need right now to steady the ship.
  7. Not sure if he'd be interested but would be a great appointment, 'the rangers' connection aside. Modest, articulate and with a high enough profile to attract players in. Qualities somewhat lacking in the recently departed predecessor in my humble opinion.
  8. Liked him well enough when he was here but seemed to have a bad attitude at sevco so would not welcome him back.
  9. I agree he has some ability but our success of late has been largely due to a great team spirit. I can't see Vigurs adding anything to that. Non-starter.
  10. By all accounts a really genuine and personable chap. Very saddening news.
  11. Me too for verily I did doubt the word of John for I had given myself unto Butcher until he did reveal his true nature to me. I was lost but now I am found. Anyone else?
  12. Ofere is improving every game - hope we can hang on to him.
  13. Gave their lives for a flag? Do you mean the union flag as a symbol of the political union between Scotland and England? Who exactly do you believe gave their lives for that cause? Members of my family gave their lives in the forces for a number of reasons- their families, comrades and communities. How dare you insult their memory by assuming they did so because they agreed with your unionist politics.
  14. Congratulations on mastering the caps lock button. There are other formatting options and these include bold which you have left on. Keep practising and one day you will be able to make your patronising posts independently.
  15. It's sort of the way the SNP have always done it. This has been part and parcel of aggressive nationalism in general for decades so you come to expect it. And as for anyone intending to vote for any other party.... well if the mob puts them off coming, then all the better. It's not a universal feature though. When I arrived to vote there were no Nats outside at all, which I actually found a bit disappointing since this was a missed opportunity to wind them up again. There were certainly plenty on Inverness High Street on Saturday for the FM's visit. How many were locals and how many were an
  16. Fantastic result. Now where did I put that passport?
  17. Careful though-their centre forward looks like he can take care of himself.
  18. My son and I were just discussing which was the better day out -that game or last Sunday's semi or maybe the party that followed that v Dundee at home. Still not sure. Hopefully all will be eclipsed on May 30th!
  19. Hopefully Meekingsgate will raise some support from the partially interested.
