    Bad times when you know more about the assistant than the manager :56:

    He's a good manager, similar to Lenny he's very passionate and motivates players very well and demands very hard work, took Barnsley up few years back from bottom of league 1 to winning play off final, will get Hibs going and wont take * or let anyone get away with slacking so that Kambari who cried over Lenny shouting at him is in trouble. Tactically he's good at adapting will have them well drilled away from home at us and Huns, liked to play a 4-1-4-1 and hit fast on break at stronger sides, but at home he will have them playing good fast attacking football and press like *.

    I think it's a good appointment for them and with a 3 n half year deal looks like he'll get time to implement ideas!

    I would agree with that. Also, he won't attract any of the attention Lenny got, none of that was Lenny's fault, of course, but given the shitshow they made of getting rid of Lenny, they probably want to go about things quietly for a while.

    I have to agree with this, he did wonders with Barnsley before his players were sold, so a really surprising and positive announcement

    Sounds a good appointment then.

    Apart from the cup game their season is a write off imo. I don’t see them making top 6 and there is no danger of being relegated, so yep he should get plenty time to settle and decide who has a future there and who doesn’t.

    Why would kamberi listen to this guy and not Lennon? Neil Lennon is a title winning CL manager yet you seem to be implying that players are more likely to respect... What's his name?

    Not implying anything of the sort. Lennon is a better manager but it's not worked out which is Hibs loss not his but heckingbottom is of the same ilk were he won't take * or accept players that are slacking.

    While Lennon boasts a much better CV both playing and managerial wise that doesn't always mean players are going to respect the manager more either, I think most players will of respected Lenny very much particularly in first couple of seasons but it's came to a sudden end, which is there loss hibs won't get a better manager than lenny ever, not saying thy will respect heckingbottom more either but just because Lenny is Lenny doesn't mean they won't perhaps respect heckingbottom more in the future, but perhaps not we shall see

    Was highly rated at Barnsley..

    Think he took them up in the playoffs against Millwall. Went to Leeds when Leeds was notoriously toxic..

    Looked good tonight.

    Will never understand why Lennon seemed to prefer Whittaker to Gray.

    Interesting to see what they do with Allan this summer, anything I’ve read about that Heckingbottom says he plays a straight 442 and never changes it.
