    Boozy in the News on Butcher, etc

    Level headed interview with Alex Harris.
    The way he doesn't seem to hold grudges and is happy to move down a level should definitely help his chances...

    Alex Harris speaks on injuries, Hibs release and Terry Butcher - Edinburgh Evening News

    No need to add anything more to what Alex Harris says in that excellent interview.
    Just a real pity events turned out as they did for him in his time at Hibs.
    I hope he goes on to make a decent career for himself in the game.

    Fair play to Alex, that's as graceful an exit interview as you could imagine.

    I don't know.

    His arrival on the scene was a fillip for a team (and support) that struggled to get fans on side, and he almost single-handedly brought us back into the semi-final against Falkirk. But maybe we, as fans, expected too much precisely because of the lack of real talent we'd seen on the pitch for a while? I don't know.

    Personally, I also tend to hold Terry Butcher a bit more responsible than wee Boozy does. Blooding youngsters is always better in a team that's doing okay and is otherwise relatively well settled, and we were anything but those things when Harris returned. As such, he got tossed into a team in freefall, didn't have the right type of captaincy to get an arm round him and pull him through, and his confidence was destroyed to a point where some insipid performances broke the link of trust between player and terrace.

    That said, Butcher was desperate to save his own reputation and just about anything would have been tried at the time.

    Still, I hope the lad does well - he's had a lot of $#@! go down for only being 22, and I think that's left behind a very mature and level-headed laddie. I wish him all the best.

    On the other hand, I hope Terry Butcher never achieves anything more than being the low-rent pundit he is now.

    Fatboy McCoist has bloated his way to the scum of the media pool too.

    As if anyone cares what the corpulent **** has to say.

    aye that carries some gravitas unfortunately..

    decent interview from Harris, was shocking mismanagement from Butcher, horrendous watching the likes of Nelson launch neck high punts in his general direction, same with Stanton.
