Good to win the opening game, but Hibs were very disappointing. Thought Killie deserved a draw at least. Standard of the game was poor throughout. With the exception of Porteous, Boyle and possibly Newall I don't think anyone in green and white could be happy with their performances today. Kevin Nisbet looked very rusty, badly in need of games. Gogic did ok, but we struggled throughout to keep decent possession and we provided next to nothing for our strikers.
Really hope we are not going to see Hibs playing so deep in the majority of games this season.
I thought we looked pretty much on a par with last season and considering most teams have struggled in their first few games after lockdown I'm mildly optimistic that we'll improve to have a decent season.
Great to get off to a winning start, Gogic left exposed and doing the work of 3 players which needs to be looked at. Disappointed that we didn’t control the game, I know it’s the first game but Alan & Newell seem to struggle together. Defending needs addressing too.
Hopefully JR & Co will address our weaknesses, we move onto our next game.
That second half was tough to watch. Still, we hung on without creating anything of note. Allowed Killie far to much time and space , although Rocky really never had anything to do. New guys will need time to settle in properly. We need to use the ball a lot better. Overall happy with the 3 points. Now all we need is for Scottish football to go into lockdown due to covid tonight and we are champions.
3 points is 3 points. The game confirmed what we all already knew, decent going forward probably improve with doidge doing the hold up work for Nesbit, midfield ok but still a bit unbalanced and defence at times all over the place especially from crosses. It’s clear to see for all so will hopefully be addressed quickly instead of 2 months down the line of the transfer window when first round of games have already been
Listened on the wireless while cleaning out the garage. Sounds like we do really need Docherty or someone of that ilk to add a bit of creativity. Sounded like Scotty Allan has still lost a bit of his mojo and an injury to Porto this early has to be a concern.
Does anyone know what the Gunts' score was? Oh, hold on...
