      what profile do you want...or think Hibs will go for

      What type of person do you see the club going for

      - - - Updated - - -

      maybe being silly here, but as we will have at least 3 pay offs this year, and probably still paying for people for others before that, then Im taking a risk and saying we will sign a big name..simply because we need to fill the stadium and get the fans back on board....as I said though I am probably dreaming

      It needs to be one or the other, if half the people vote what they think we'll do and the other half vote what they want us to do, then the results won't really show anything..

      Does that even make sense

      If John Collins is appointed I'll believe the club is not still being run by Petrie and is willing to show some ambition.

      Probably the cheapest option recommended by the fans. Then we can demand they're sacked by Christmas, and claim we made no suggestions.

      I think that would be as good a deal as we could get right now...Calderwood gets loads of stick from some fans (mainly for his appearance and background...which is of no interest to me whatsoever) but his record is excellent, his teams are always well organised, and he knows how to get the best from his players. He also has loads of experience in the game. If Ian Murray gets the job ( I think he is the most likely next manager), then having someone like Jimmy Calderwood or someone else of that experience and knowledge working alongside him as a number 2 could be the best option in the dire and challenging situation we are in.

      So Calderwood or Butcher then?

      FWIW I think we should at this point be recognising that it can't all be just about the managers. Butcher did a decent job at Inverness. Disaster at Hibs. Yogi done a decent job at Falkirk. Disaster at Hibs. Mixu done a decent job at Kilmarnock, decent in Finland before getting the Hibs job, and has done an excellent job with Finland. Disaster at Hibs. Fenlon had a decent track record in Ireland. Disaster at Hibs.

      I'm absolutely not against a Hibby getting the job. We've got no identity from the boardroom so the manager has to develop one. It would be handy if they had a clue what Hibbies think when doing so.

      It appears to me that too many within the support think like the clueless chairman we have (who still hasn't done the decent thing and resigned) and that's think that if we appoint the right person all will fall into place. The facts suggest that no it won't.... Not all our failed manager's were hopeless. But hopeless they were at ER and in the main because we just don't get good enough players.

      I think that is too short sighted: yes promotion is the immediate goal, but the club has to have a longer term strategy which the new manager is capable of implementing.

      Our new manager has to be willing to commit to us fairly long term me.
      He should have a football philosophy(sp?)of playing the ball on the deck
      He should be willing and able to blend youth and experience
      It would imho help if he knew a bit about us as a club

      I was thinking more Miller or McLeish,far better than any other manager we've had in the last 30 years.

      Bringing back ex players usually ends up with us hating them due to utter failure.

      I wouldn't disagree with that...but the reality is the the club's long term strategy depends entirely on gaining promotion at the first time of asking. We simply have to get back to the top league next season. IMO we need someone in with a track record of dealing with a crisis situation (which Hibs are most definitely in), and who knows how to put together a squad capable of winning the league we are about to compete in. It's not going to be pleasant on the eye next season, we need players in who will fight for every ball in every game and are willing to put themselves out for the cause, and we need a manager who can motivate them.

      Mcleish did not leave us in a good position and spent a fortune. His entire success was built on 2 players and when they were no longer available we were pish. And Miller was horrendous.

      Whoever the best candidate is should get the job. Doesn't matter about their history.

      McLeish built a great team with the likes of O'Neil and Laursen alongside Sauzee and Latapy,great to watch.

      Have to disagree about Miller,any team with Jackson,Wright,O'neil and Crunchie in it is far from horrendous.

      I hope we go for some foreign guy,Skacel maybe :-D

      Tend to agree, if you were to erase the Miller and McLeish chapters of my Hibernian history I'd not be left with too many great memories tbh!

      Boozy was a talented player who has previous and current affiliations with our club.

      Apart from Calderwood there are many who would say everyone else I've mentioned is low on experience but a good CV didn't take our previous managers very far eh?

      I've just thrown this into the ring for comments as apart from Fenlon (who I knew very little about) I was fairly pleased with most of our recent managerial appointments so my talents obviously lie elsewhere.

      Pep Gardiola + Murray + Boozy + Collins + Sauzee.

      Plus Petrie to get to absolute $#@!.

      And also, us to speculate massively and have a rare old time.

      Never hurt anyone else in the Scottish game...

      I know he's not the most popular choice but McLeish has been over the course before... Ok he left and went on to bigger things....it's called ambition! He needs to put himself in the shop window and could nurture Murray as his replacement when he moves on. They both know the club and would bring the players and the fans closer. It would give us much needed stability and continuity moving forward. Can we afford to? Or can we afford not to?

      With all the talk about him going to the unwashed as a number 2 suggesting he might be ready to come back to full-time coaching, I want Collins to take the hibs job so much it hurts.

      It would also suggest Rod's $#@!ed off entirely out of the process.

      Selecting a manager on the basis of whether you specifically fancy him seems like a terribly shallow idea on the face of it.

      But, all the other options haven't worked over the past 7 years.

      Lets do it.

      yesterday I said I thought it was a couple of years to early for ian murray but the more I think of it I was wrong.tony mobray had zero management experience when he got the job murray has nearly 2 seasons of experience now and I think he would be an ideal fit young vibrant point to prove knows the league and absolutely loves the hibs

      O'Neil was a good player when he had Latapy beside him and Sauzee behind him. When he didn't he was bang average. Same with Matty Jack. Laursen was a decent player. It was a side built on two exceptional talents. Which would be fine except we lost Latapy to bampottery, and Sauzee to the ravages of time and then management. And the team was bowfing.

      Miller built one (at a push one and a half) decent side in 10 years. And hated them playing football. And blew pretty much every relationship with players. Alex Miller made Bobby Williamson look like a man who was carefree and adored attacking football.

      I'd be fine with a foreign coach fwiw. But the important word is coach imo. Get someone who will get the best out of players. FWIW at the time we appointed Butcher I said that I fancied the Spanish boy who was quoted as being interested (can't mind his name but he'd managed Sevilla & Real Betis).

      Can we not just do what Man U did with their "Class of 92" and get Sauzee, Zitelli, Latapy and Mixu in as a class of 2001? Throw in JC due to the man crush also and Boozy to complete the French flair.

      honestly, I'd back myself to do a better job at Hibs than the last 5 or 6 incumbents.
      It's not that difficult.
      • Identify players that fit your style.
      • Hire those players.
      • Let them know your methodology
      • fill them with confidence
      • send them out to destroy.

      Hibs are a far bigger club than Motherwell. If he came to Hibs he would not only have a fat salary but a new challenge. He has taken Motherwell as far as they can go on a limited budget with no fresh funds for the coming season. If anything they are likely to be cutting costs. He probably does have aspirations to manage the Huns but I can't see them booting Ally McCoist after successive promotions.

      Personally I think a young manager like Ian Murray would not be ready for the task of winning the league. We need an experienced head with good contacts in the game for what will be the biggest season in the clubs history thus far.
