Hibs fans claiming he has been suspended.

Tried to get a quick look at hibs.net before as I guessed they would, the admins put it into lockdown ( they do it when they get beat ana....f@ckin weans that they are)

Anyway some were mentioning possible mental health issues, others a fallout with their rugmunching chief exec over lack of funds for transfers. My immediate thought was would they try for Kenny miller as player/manager but he's played for livi and Dundee so can't play for anyone else. Nobody else really springs to mind

I was shocked to see Lennon on Sportscene criticising his players after the midweek game.

He never normally does that.

He looked tired and drawn as well. Something's wrong. The truth will out.

SSN reporting a bust up at a team meeting as the reason for his suspension.

Suspended and unlikely to take charge again, following an exchange with other employees.

Sounds like they’re going to try to punt him using disciplinary measures to avoid giving him a pay-off.

From a wee glance at a hibbee forum this is the going theory.

Lennon has a go at Flo
Flo defends himself
Lennon goes tonto
SDG and DMac step in to defend Flo
Lennon goes even more mental, launches chair at SDG
SDG and DMac request meeting with LD
Lennon goes even more insanely mental at LD, using seriously inappropriate language
Suspended.

All apparently, of course.

Lennon hides behind sectarianism and mental health issues, uses them to excuse his own OTT behaviour. Remember him being touted on here as a potential Aberdeen manager, but things like this prove he should be nowhere near our club. Always controversial, always the victim, the man has very little class. Bizarrely I’ve warmed to him a little while he’s been at Hibs - quite like his beligerence in the face of the OF, but he’s got nothing on Derek McInnes....on or off the pitch.

Confusing post.

Yes Lennon behaves like a street urchin. You can take the man out of Ireland etc. but he has passion and wants to win and these are pretty important in football management. SAF had a big dose of cunt about him too.

Your use of the word "class" is concerning. Being semi-articulate in front of a camera doesn't mean jack shit. The fact McInnes is so predictable, doesn't take risks and never explodes is because he's only interested in keeping a job. He will NEVER succeed in management. The only players who would break a toenail for him are losers themselves. The Shinnies of this world would die for the cause, not for him because they're properly self-motivated.

It's fans who can't see how bad McInnes actually is who give licence to Milne and is why we have the club we deserve.

But he doesn’t win. His team are 8th, while we could potentially go 2nd today....I’d rather have a likeable manager who puts a competitive team on the park than a comedy caricature who’s all talk and no trousers.

Guy is obviously a c@nt of the highest order.

But he does manage to set up his team to regularly deliver beatings to both arse cheeks. And doing so playing football that the fans enjoy watching.....no turgid 10 men behind the ball hoping for a sucker punch quick breakaway. ( Bizarre how he can't t get his teams to consistently beat the Motherwell's and St Johnstone's the same way)

Think he will take the rest of the season off and resurface next season at a decent level EFL 1 side ( a relegated Ipswich maybe??). I don 't think Scotland have seen the last of old popcorn teeth though

Hibs are never going to be title challengers but he WANTS to win and that's the point.

McInnes likeable? I've never liked midget charlatans. Fuck me you think AFC are in the title race? Good grief.

Absolute nonsense, you’re saying Lennon wants to win football matches more than McInnes? I want to win. We all want to win. How does that make Lennon any different?

We are never going to agree on this. We aren't on the same page and I can't understand anyone who thinks in terms of "class", a term used without thinking, being an indoctrination and a throwback to the Victorian era, where "fair play" and "decency" were invoked fabrications.

The only winning McInnes wants is a wage. He's a fucking loser wimp.

Lennon is a tink though. As was SAF.

And no, we do not ALL want to win. Desire separates the best from the rest, the desire to work harder, the desire to work smarter. The majority are losers and the losers who aren't handicapped by reason of intellect (which is most of them) are too lazy and too lacking in courage to have a go.

There’s more to winning than an individual’s drive and character. Lennon won as a Celtic player because he was part of a good (expensively assembled) squad. He won as Celtic manager because he took charge of a good (expensively assembled) squad. If he’d ‘won’ at Hibs I’d have wholeheartedly agreed with your point - but he hasn’t. He’s assembled an average team, and his frustrations have now boiled over (as they were always going to).

Hibs lost their best players in the summer. Lennon has been getting increasingly frustrated and being the man that he is, he lacks discipline and self control and was always going to burst. Unlike McInnes, Lennon can't accept mediocrity. This comes from his burning desire to succeed, something that was never going to happen in a club contaminated by the weirdos who are Petrie and Dempster.

You think DMC would happily plod on if we dropped to 8th in the table? He’s also had to contend with losing key players.
But I do get your point.
