I agree to an extent. He's pretty well spoken and seems like an intelligent guy so I imagine he's good in an interview as his CV isn't a litany of successes.

That said, whilst Hibs fans will disagree and bemoan losing big games, how long will it be before a manager finishes 3rd in the league with Hibs and gets them into 2 cup finals?

With Sunderland he wasn't great but if you compare him to everyone of his successors until Alec Neil, then he didn't do a terrible job.

His next job now will be at a Falkirk or Dunfermline, if he's lucky.

What will that be? Groundsman? No danger he would ever get the Falkirk job.

No one even put in a tackle. Ross deserves all the pelters coming his way but the players need to have a look at themselves too. Absolute shite bags. F St Mirren were getting horsed I'd expect to see several players getting stuck in. You could name at least 2 or 3 players in every team in the league that would've wanted to put a tackle in. Dundee Utd's players completely chucked it today.

If Gowser was playing today I doubt Celtic would have ended the game with 11 players - alive.

As an outsider looking in, I was amazed by the lack of fight more than anything else. The one booking was an accidental clash. Not one hard challenge put in all day. Changing the manager won’t change that attitude.

I thought Eriksson did okay today, tbf. The goals were either well-taken or (mostly) tap-ins against unmarked runners.

He is probably shite though, just not blaming him for the goals today. Don't know about Birighitti. Obviously the A League's not great but you would expect the 'goalkeeper of the year' for two years running to be at least ha;lf decent.

Probably this season...

I'd  be fucking delighted if that result was down to the keeper being shite. That's a much easier one to fix. You could have had any goalkeeper in the world between the sticks today and it would have made very little difference.

I guess my humour didn't come across despite the emoji. Hibs will do well to be 3rd bottom.

Fair enough, sarcasm is always more difficult to read than hear. Hibs are indeed pish, not quite Utd pish but pish all the same.

Fair comment my man, he had a number of decent early saves and was afforded little or no protection throughout.

I, against my better judgement watched Jack Hamilton at Dens leaving a scorch mark on my memory banks. Now he could truly single-handedly, excuse the pun, consistently end your gameplan before anyone was even warmed up! 

Regards.

100% you will pick up your first league win against us in 2 weeks time. 
 

United could do no worse than signing Newell and Doidge.
