Just back and that was woeful

Ok I get many Hibs fans don't care about the league any more, but I care enough to want HIbs to turn up, for Sauzee sake, that was rotten. We played with little fire in our belly, indeed much of the game we were pretty shite. St Johnstone are a negative team, they came to steal a win, they did, gifted to them by a woeful pass from Porto straight to that hun dogshite Middleton, dear fucking me. Aberdeen won today too, two games to secure third.

Then there is the amatuer Hibs TV, £400 for a season ticket, I accept HIbs TV is the best we will get, but the least you expect is the 90 minutes of coverage, not the whole thing going off for ten minutes before half time for everyone. Did they apologise? Overall it was not our day, we miss Nissy for sure, Wright is a waste of a jersey, McGinn has lost his way and Joe and Jackson are nowhere near consistent enough. Thank Sauzee for Martin Boyle and Chris Doidge.

The team

Marciano had almost nothing to do.

McGinn, sorry he has lost his way, defending poor, crossing pretty poor.

Porto, woeful pass otherwise little to do.

Paul, played well enough, wasn't tested much but I admit is not a leader.

Josh, I felt they stopped him playing until the second half.

Gogic played well, we took him after 70 minutes to give Melker a try out before next week. I am not sure.

Joe, lost his way for me recently

Jackson flits in and out too much still, I feel there is something missing

Wright is not good enough for Hibs. Not a scapegoat, a simple statement

I thought Doidge and Boyler done pretty well but nothing came our way.

The subs

Magennis for Wright on the hour, sorry that is a like for like for me, still not sure where Magennis plays?

Melker for Gogic on 70, prefer Gogic but get it

Doig replaced by Stevenson, a like for like.

Bradley for Newell for the last ten, at last trying something different with little time to go.

The Boss

17.15, still no interview. He picked his strongest team, less Wright but Saints beat us but taking one of their few chances and wwe looked a bit clueless about how to break them down.

Saints

No a good watch are they, boring, close the game down, play on the break but it works. I would make a good bid for Kerr.

The Ref

Was fine, not sure about the penalty at the end? Couldne see on amatuer TV.

Amatuer TV

Shocking that paying fans should lose 10 minutes of coverage. That and the cameraman not following the game, but instead randomly following players around, Cliff and Tam oblivious. Tam's sigh's tell you how Hibs are playing, there were plenty today.

Man of the Match

Only Boyler and Doidgey in the running, Doidge by a bawhair for me.

In summary, we have left ourselves open to Aberdeen catching us, which is piss poor and not good enough, we played without motivation or passion today.

Next up, Dundee United at Easter Road West, fuck only knows what will happen, I feel a bit cheated today.

Hibernian Forever!
Seen none of the game and reading this I’m fuckin glad. Only good thing for me today is Dundee United look worse. Mon the Cabbage!

Porto reminds me a lot of Gary Caldwell who could go from being magnificent one week and then just totally lose concentration the following week and make some shocking error.🤔

That wasn't why the game was lost though as the defense was actually quite strong and Marciano barely had a save to make.✅

Everything went wrong elsewhere as St Johnstone worked out how to stop Doig bombing forward and how to play Boyle through the middle.

Newell and Irvine could just be ignored as they were just so poor.😥.

I didn't see what else the manager could do to change things as he had no attacking threat whatsoever on the bench.😥

Its very much the business end of the season and all he had was the pointless task of throwing on a young laddie or the consistently drab Magennis😥.

Gambling with a proper forward in Gullan or the very experienced and creative Scott Allan would have at least given Hibs a chance of saving the game but they were nowhere to be seen.🤔😉

I have this fear we finish 4th go out in another semi final and Jack Ross claims we've still had a good season.

He'd be advised to not say that.

However, he thankfully won't need to take that advice....

I. Hope.

He can’t come out and say that - he’s already stated that third and a trophy was the goal.

I know what you mean, been thinking similar. I still think we will sneak 3rd. however I’m not confident re cup. Again favourites in the semi stage but after the last 2 semi finals I find it hard to be optimistic...being Hibs though, you never know!

That was utter shite today. It's a toss up what was the worst though: the team or hibs TV?? Both brutal.

As much as we'd like to finish 3rd the Cup has to be priority number 1.
Financially the difference between 3rd or 4th is what? A hundred grand (and there's certainly no glory attached to either spot).
The difference between winning/not winning the Cup is 3 to 4 million AND the glory of lifting a trophy.....

'mon tae fuck Hibs don't fuck this up now!

A bad day at the office.Not insurmountable by any stretch of the imagination. We know Newell and Irvine can play ; some have said as much on this forum. Hallberg can play a bit. Get rid of Wright and McGennis, they've had enough shots at impressing and they just don't. But I still think the old team could see us over the line. Surely Gray has got 60 minutes in him?

one think we'd get from SDG is 100% commitment , the man to drive the team on and lead by example

We were due a performance like that, hopefully out the way today and better next week.

We’ve had a good season results wise. It’s a very poor league. We’ve got three real top level players for the league in our squad (Boyle, Nisbet and Allan), we’ve a couple of real high potential younger players (Porteous and Doig) and the majority of the rest are good honest, solid SPL players.

Will we have any of the five name checked above next year? I can’t say I’m hugely confident we will.

I worry for the semi final next week with no Gogic in the middle of the park. Newell and Irvine for me don’t do it. Irvine has a spark, I’m not even going to go into my opinion on Newell.

Still, we win the cup and finish third it’s been an incredible season. I don’t even want to think about that not happening given the teams in both cup semi finals and the general poor quality of the league over all. Standard of play as opposed to competitiveness.
Fairer assessment kaiser would be "we've had too many performances like that". I'm no fan of lenny but he was 100% accurate with the boy-band analogy.
