Ian Murray got sent off playing for Hibs last night in an SPL game against Motherwell.
Still, I’m sure he won’t mind as he’s bound to still be having fun (is it wrong that it still annoys me?).
It probably is, isn’t it? Oh well, I’ll survive. 🙂
If you are anything to go by pal I’m not surprised Ian left Norwich. You sound so full of bile and invective I wouldn’t be surprised if you have to get a scrape out every quarter.
Ian has been outstanding for Hibs since his return from a self imposed exile. His commitment is matched by his ability. Having met him I know he is a genuine geezer that would give 100% for any of his employers. I wonder what’s rotten in the state of Norwich that would provoke him to be so out of character to give Great Glenn the verbal boot .
Come on let’s have ya!
As for his sending off on wednesday, it was the culmination of as inept a piece of refereeing as you’ll ever see. Even the two oposing managers agreed on that.
Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment Dave.
I can’t deny that the whole Ian Murray “experience” left a bad taste in my mouth. What bothered me about it was how when he played for us he was pretty poor overall, and after being part of a squad that leaves you five points adrift at the bottom of the table to come out and criticise the new manager for taking away his “fun” you should be able to see where I’m coming from.
Is that the opinion of most Norwich fans? I’ve no idea – it certainly is of the ones I’ve spoken to about it.
I must admit that I didn’t particularly look into the reasons for his sending off, so yeah it was a cheap shot and if his red card was undeserved then I’m not too proud to hold my hands up. Hibs are a club I’ve always had a lot of respect for and if he does a good job for you then fair play to him.
Good luck for the rest of the season – I look forward to seeing you in the UEFA cup come the Autumn.
PS it’s “Come on, let’s be havin’ you!”, not “come on let’s have ya”, but I appreciate the sentiment. You might be surprised to hear that most City fans aren’t as embarrassed by that as we probably should be!
I admit I was annoyed by your initial post. Just in case you couldn’t tell!
Ian was our club captain and a 100% player, full of energy and enthusiasm before he was transferred to the Dark Side. (Actually he opted not to renew his contract and crossed over to increase his earnings)He joined the Huns under McLeish (“Ginger Judas” to us Hibbees!) who was given the ‘heave ho’ 6 months after Ian joined them. The next manager was Paul le Guen who gave him a few games but Ian was injured and contracted a pretty bad virus which resulted in several months out. When Wattie Scmidtt replaced PLG Ian was offloaded to Norwich as quick as possible by the grey git.
In summary you got a player woefully short of match practice and no doubt suffering from a severe lack of confidence not helped by being put into a struggling side by another crap manager.
When your new broom swept clean he was not very charitable about Ian and the axe fell on him again. I think Norwich lost a potenial “great” and I am just glad he came back to us.
Since his return he has been MOM on 3 occasions and nothing but the consumate professional we knew him to be.
Anyway that’s off my chest now.
Good luck for the rest of the season. You’ll need it against Sheffield Utd on Saturday!!
