I completely understand what you are saying but you can't pull it out of the box to suit your situation.

You're the one pulling out Lenny's mental health out of the box.

That's not what makes Stubbs a good choice, but it contextualises this "terrible league manager" label that Stubbs has been given by some Hibs fans and a lot of neutrals. It simply isn't true, and if it is then Lennon has to be given a similar label, because he 'outperformed' Stubbs in a much weaker Championship by a single point.

Yeah, I did consider mentioning that Lennon only managed to be a point better off and can’t argue with your point about the comparison between the two of them, but wasn’t entirely sure it’s relevant.

Sure, Lennon was barely any better in the Championship and turned out fine in the Premiership, so if your thought process is you want a manager to have you floating between the top and bottom six comfortably avoiding relegation while having good cup runs I can see why you’d think Stubbs can deliver that, but why take the risk of him turning out worse than that? Hibs can surely get a manager with a far better pedigree.

Obviously with the state of the bottom three this season there’s no chance of whoever the new manager is doing a Butcher, but considering that Stubbs is responsible for one of those shambles and his man-management was a critical part of that, is he really a good option when the players are reportedly up in arms about how they’ve been treated by their manager and are on a bad run? Would it really a massive leap to see him bombing next season?

Anyone know exactly what happened?

Give it two days and the I'm a bullied ginger depressed lad to be in the papers.

You'd have thought you'd have learned after making jokes about Sala the day he went missing, tbh.

Yet here you are, making jokes about someone who's admitted they struggle with their mental health.

Mask truly slipped over the past few days.

Pretty unnecessary. I hope Lennon is OK, he clearly does have his demons he is battling and deserves continued support from the footballing community, including of course Hibs. 

Hibs can support him all they want, along with their big cousins who, I presume, will be holding a minutes silence for him today. He will get zero support from me as he is a violent thug and bully who should have been kicked out of football for his own good years ago.

Not really. A joke is a joke and if you don't find it funny then fair enough.

Lennon is a twat for making his mental health a pawn to avoid responsibility and accountability.

That is unacceptable. And as for a mask? What are you actually talking about? It's a forum. It's my opinion. I have at no point pertained to be anything.

Thanks though for your concern. :lol:

Stubbs was a bawhair away from being the first non OF manager to win the double in 26 years, and with a Championship side too. On paper that’s phenomenal. He failed to get promoted ahead of a rejuvenated Hearts and Rangers in the most competitive Championship ever, which isn’t completely shameful. Yes, we finished behind Falkirk 2nd season, but we also had an insane fixture pile up due to the 2 cup finals, and 4 semi finals that season. He rebuilt Hibs from scratch, and it’s telling that we are only starting to nosedive now Lennon has built his own team. 

That said, we’re not looking for a manager to rebuild, we are looking for someone who can get the best out of an existing group of players and Stubbs doesn’t have a track record of that. 

No he wasn't.

Surely a decent bet would be young up and coming tactical genius Martin Canning. Ex Hibbee. Steeped in Hibbeeness. Worked wonders on a shoestring. Would devastate Accies fans across the globe but that's football.

What's the punishment for throwing a chair at one of your staff?
This against the backdrop of a fan getting a lifetime ban for throwing a coin .
If any kind of truth to it could it be a criminal charge?

Have you ever considered why it's so difficult for men to be open and up front about mental health in this country?

Talk to friends - YES

Talk to charity services - YES

Get support you are entitled to - YES

Use it to avoid accountability - NO

Genuinely though, you made a "joke" about Cardiff getting their money back because their "item was never delivered", and now you're publicly shaming someone for daring to come out and talk about their depression. 

This isn't a case of you making a joke that folk don't find funny, this is a case of you being a massive fucking c**t in situations where it's just scummy to be that way, then lashing out at folk who says it's shite patter.
