Terry Butcher: Ready to take the manager's job at Hibernian

Butcher has already held talks with Easter Road chairman Rod Petrie on Wednesday after being given permission to discuss the position vacated by Pat Fenlon last week.

The former England captain has not travelled with the Caley Thistle squad for their Scottish Premiership clash with Hibs today and his assistant Maurice Malpas will take charge of the visitors.

In almost five years in the Highlands Butcher has taken Caley Thistle to the brink of European football, and recently led his charges to a second successive League Cup semi-final.

Mike Reilly from the Hibernian Supporters Association believes Butcher's arrival will go down well with the long-suffering Hibernian supporters.

"I think the fans are quite happy that it's Terry that's coming there," Reilly said on Sky Sports News.

"If he can do the job that he's done at Inverness, if he can bring that to Easter Road, then we would be delighted.

"If he comes and does a good job and gets the best out of all the Hibs players then I don't see any reason why we can't finish very high up the league.

"I'm sure Rod Petrie's done his homework again and he'll probably think he's got the best man, and we all hope he has."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
