There were indeed several that used to drink in my old local in Edinburgh that always swore they’d never be back while Petrie was there. Wonder what their excuse will be now?

This is my understanding too. Rod wanted to give him more time but was outvoted. Collective responsibility.I’m not sure about that story.
May have been another made up version from the guys that seem to have a personal grudge against Rodders.
Rodders was not the guy that sacked him, and maybe didn’t want him sacked.
But ‘corporate responsibility’ and all that.
The Hibs board at the time collectively "shat it' when Hibs went 3rd bottom though in limited danger and it was ultimately it was the "Fat Malky" that dun the Sauzee" I wonder if he still goes along?.This is my understanding too.

I think that Sauzee doesn’t care too much about Hibs tbh. He’s never given any indication that the affection is reciprocal.
Am away on holiday just now so not read everything but how much do you think Petrie and Farmer received and how did it work with the debt to Farmer now no more?The Hibs board at the time collectively "shat it' when Hibs went 3rd bottom though in limited danger and it was ultimately the "Fat Malky" that dun the Sauzee"

Hibs should be heading for a capacity crowd next season with all the "haters" returning though of course Mr Farmer and "The Dear Leader" were never the problem.
Supporters just fall out of love with Hibs/football and look for a convenient excuse to stop going and this was theirs.
Its been a very bumpy ride but the impressive stadium and infrastructure, the Scottish cup and early positive signs of the new owner are their deserved legacy and the time is right for the club to move in a new direction.
Overall Mr Farmer and Rod Petrie have been good for Hibs though Hibs have also been good for them and Mr Petrie's very brief statement might be through gritted teeth.
He might have been pushed but when he reflects he really can't be around any longer and he was actually quite chirpy in the press conference.
Its quietly been forgotten that their must be some sort of payoff to both men by the new owner if their controlling shares of 70% have now transferred to the new owners as you don't just walk away from a club worth £Xm.
Hopefully they both come out on the pitch v St Mirren to say goodbye and I will happily stand and applaud both men for all the right reasons as they deserve a farewell.
A real guess would be Mr USA paying £8m for the club lock stock and barrel.Am away on holiday just now so not read everything but how much do you think Petrie and Farmer received and how did it work with the debt to Farmer now no more?
