Ah yes! The man that was going to get us back on the football map! How barmy was Massimo Cellino?

Still beggars belief that all that actually happened! :shock: :crazy:

He was a very Barmy person in all accounts. I think he did try to get the club back on track financially and he gets his due credit for doing so from me, but realistically he also set the team back a few years by the managers he appointed. Radz started off badly during his term since Cellino but has rectified it all by bringing in Bielsa.

By the way Cellino's new club Brechia are top of the Second tier of Italian football so he must be doing something right there.... Hope it goes well for him and us this year and then we meet him in the Champions league or Uefa cup in a few years.

It was a devious move by Cellino imo. He was already planning to sack him before he employed him. It was a watermelon too far!

Cellino treated the club and the supporters with disdain and disrespect, just look at how Thorp Arch went to near rack & ruin. He was nearly as scummy as Bates but not quite, and GFH.

I always said, Cellino got Hockaday because he was cheap. End of.

I hope it goes well for him to be honest. I think he personally made the wrong decision coming to us last year when the team were in a huge downward spiral and he didn't have the experience to get the team out of the mire they were in. Hibs are a good team in Scotland and although they haven't the financial clout that Rangers and Celtic have I believe if he can muster some players of his own into that squad he could do well with them.

Agreed 100% ANS and what finances he was taking from the decline of assets he was using to hire and fire managers. Maybe there is some form of tax dodging in relation to it?
