could you blame Nisbet for ”regressing”? he’s a young lad whose father has passed away less than 2 weeks ago. the team is poor. We’ll finish top 4 because our form against the other sides is decent. how form against the so called bigger teams is really poor though, mentality issue for me.
Has our form been decent? Other than Livvie away and sevco at home I'm struggling to think of a convincing display. Please correct me if I'm wrong

Oh come on Family!

The same manager who has steered us to a very good start this season which is easily forgotten in two games?

JR isn’t costing us, it is players out of form.

We don’t have a big enough squad to just swap when players lose form, not quality for quality anyway.

Dont believe everything you watch or read, I liked Sunderland til I die but it didn’t form my opinion of JR.

What are you suggesting? Sack him?

Did I say sack him? All I am saying is the same errors are happening here as they did at Sunderland which he needs to address.

Didn’t say you did, I asked what you were suggesting.

Sunderland to Hibs is like comparing apples and pears.

I would suggest his experiences at Sunderland will benefit Hibs.

All conjecture of course. I ain’t a professional football manager, if you are, I concede to your superior knowledge.

So it’s not a concern to you that the same issues are happening to us like what happened at Sunderland? You can give it all the apples and pears nonsense all you want but the reality is it doesn’t look like he has learned from his Sunderland days and is now doing the same here. No professional manager with superior knowledge it’s evident to see.

I’m not a tactician I don’t profess to be one. I only know what I like to see when I watch any game of football. I like a good quick passing game mostly going forward not all the fannying about at the back that is when you read stats of possession 65 %shots on target 2 nah that’s no good.
I like 50 50 challenges with a sprinkling of blood and guts thrown in(apologies if this is now sounding like a Jamie Oliver recipe)I like pacy wingers getting in behind defenders firing hard to defend balls across the face of the goal. I like 2 up front 1 who’s an out and out goal scorer the other someone who can dribble and drive at the defence.AND I like quick throw ins that don’t have referees on the verge of reaching for a yellow card for time wasting.Unfortunately Hibs are not that team not yet but I think we’ll get there or almost.
There’s criticism of the manager some of it probably justified but like someone posted you can go from hero to zero all it takes is 90 minutes. Look back at some of the posts when he played 1up front we cried out for 2strikers “that’s the hibs way”.he was praised for his subs for game changing and seeing out games now people are listening to moaning Maccums who reckon he’s a dud. I finally saw highlights (and I use that term loosely) of Friday nights game and it was awful yeah we should have had a penalty AGAIN on paper I would have subbed Gullane for Doidge maybe a mistake on the manager’s part but only he knows what state his players are in before the match and we as supporters are not privy to that information. After the event we ,myself included can criticise the line up on players performance but who would have changed the line up before the ko?
We’re all angry we’re all dissatisfied and we’re all looking for someone to blame that’s the nature of the beast that’s one of the reasons I love the Bounce everyone voices their opinions right wrong totally mental I love it but at the end of the day that’s all it is,our opinion.
My opinion at the moment and it may change as the season unfolds is I think and hope it is just a dip in form and given time (a short time) that with the squad we’ve got a lot of whom haven’t played together for that long will improve and if we can strengthen it then all to the good.
Keep on posting and keep the faith
Glory Glory to the Bounce. 💚

Aberdeen are a squad 7 years in the making. That's how long McIness has been there and how long it has taken him to build a solid, competitive squad. That's why Ross needs time to do the same. Aberdeen finished second for four seasons on the trot and have played regular European football...that has to be our aim. Our ambition has to be to replace them as the Old Firm's main challengers. I am sure Ross, Gordon and Dempster share that ambition. It won't happen overnight or in one season (Ross has only been in charge for a year), but if we all pull in the same direction and get behind the manager and the club we can get there a lot quicker. Remember we spent three financially crippling seasons in the Championship whilst they were achieving second spot finishes and all the extra income that brings.

I actually don't think there is much between Aberdeen and Hibs as teams, but they have a significantly stronger squad which has been put together, nurtured and developed over the last 5 or 6 years by an excellent manager who has been backed to the hilt by his board. That's the difference and that is why they will more than likely finish in third spot this season probably quite comfortably above Hibs.

This year is a nightmare due to Covid-19 and no regular income, and to be honest just completing the season will be an achievement never mind anything else.

Incremental improvement in the team's performance and finishing league position is what I am looking for. I hope Jack Ross is here for the long haul and given a chance to build the squad and the team we all want to see.
Get what your saying but Aberdeen are more successful over decades not just the last 7 years there's a reason for it and it comes doon to money.

I’d say it has - 24 points from 13 games is the definition of decent form.

Performances can be debated, results can’t.
Jammy one goal wins have accumulated points and I'll gladly take them. But performances have not been good. As I've said in a previous post, we've papered over cracks and its now beginning to show.

St Mirren away was decent too. Hamilton at home we were good but wasted so many chances. There’s been plenty positives this season.
Played well against Hamilton, however another one goal win, which by the end of the game we were fortunate to have.

One goal wins are the foundation of any successful team. Maybe it’s jammy, maybe it’s making your own luck.
Our season will consist of stodgy one goal wins, the odd great performance, and a few reminders that we’re not as good as we thought... if that gets us 4th, a position we all think is a minimum but is rarely a reality, I’ll take that.
