Given what’s tended to happen to Hibs managers in general and Shaun Maloney in particular, four years seems like a rather ambitious and potentially financially risky length of contract!
Roy Keene looks awfully different nowadays!
Good luck Lee! great manager, great team.
Four-year contract when you've just binned the last manager after six months!
He’s never won anything in his life, sacked by Bristol City and Sunderland.
Success, if you give him the same budget as the two old firm teams, that's the only way you will get success.
He be out before Christmas.
Good luck Lee, great to have you at Hibs.
Best of luck Lee. Saw my team (Sunderland) playing the best attacking football with you as manager.
Not even club managers at Barcelona, PSG, Real Madrid and Man Utd get four-year contracts.
I think it’s a brilliant signing and I’m very happy. Well done Hibs.
More than three quarters of Edinburgh residents would walk or cycle more often if shops and services were closer to home, a report has found.
Or if cycling in Edinburgh came with kevlar tyres and inner tubes for the potholes... and a free e-kit conversion.
Really! Who do they ask in these surveys, Edinburgh’s student population? Don’t fancy carrying a week’s shopping home on a bike!
Sorry, but I don't believe these findings. Who did they ask? I have never been asked, never been contacted, never seen a single surveyor. I'm guessing it was all done in the city centre among the student population. FYI, no one I know has ever been asked these questions. It's sheer propaganda from the Green brigade.
Or if Edinburgh didn't have so many hills and a generally dreadful climate for about 10 months of the year. Plus secure places to leave bikes because of high theft levels. Businesses would need to provide more shower / changing facilities to enable this.
Well, thank god Edinburgh council keeps approving massive housing estates with two car drives and no services near by.
Aye, right. City shop rents are so high locals can't afford it, so use their cars to get to supermarkets and shops that locals can afford. Then there is the road works. People avoid the city and Leith now because the bus takes up to 45mins more due to the roadworks. That’s 1.5 hours to get to the shop and back, let alone doing the shopping itself.
There would be more shops and services for residents close to home if the council would stop approving accommodation for transients in formerly residential areas. We're stacked with student blocks, serviced apartments (all new-build) and Airbnb. Their customers don't cook, don't employ tradespeople and don't repair household equipment or cars and they buy mostly fast food.
Of course, but local government has authorised vast dormitories which are in high density areas with insufficient services and amenities. People have to travel long distances to places of work or decent shopping. Many of the high density areas are zones of blight which have not been addressed by planning or greedy developers. The rack em, stack em and pack em principle has been applied so maximum profit for developers achieved while the lowest possible social environment is afforded. The lag behind for transport, social amenity and general environment is shameful.
By services I presume it includes things like shops. I wonder how CEC will help people have access to things like butchers and fishmongers... or are these only to be for the posh area and not for the majority?
And carrying shopping is not a problem. Maybe we will all get panniers or make six trips instead of one weekly shop.
