Just back and we murdered them 0 - 0

How did that end 0 -0, we had enough chances to win 2 games, but we simply did not take the many chances we had, which is frustrating. Dinnae get me wrong, Hibs are a good team, the defence is solid, the midfield is better, the attack looks threatening, we just could not convert. It was another clean sheet, we played some lovely football and we really should have won comfortably.

I thought there were some excellent performances in green today, the back four were immense, Gogic and expecially Newell were excellent and Nissie just improves game on game. I heard some praise of Ross County, they did play well in spurts but they played to stifle Hibs and not win at home, an arsehole approach to football but a compliment towards Hibs and the threat we pose. A better referee might have had a couple more Staggies off, their double barrelled named right winger commited three or four bookable fouls, the lanky streak of pish up front should have been booked for diving then halved young Gullan. He is no where near the player Nissie is.

We will play much much worse and win handsomely.

The team

Rocky had very little to do, which tells you how the game went.

Paul McGinn looked like the Scottish international he is, first class.

Ryan Porteous looked like the Scottish international he is, first class.

Paul Hanlon looked like the Scottish international he is, first class. Very unlucky not to score and attacked well second half.

Lewis was fine, did everyhing he had to, well apart from score rather then blooter it over.

Alex Gogic commanded the midfield. Solid.

Joe Newell had yet another first class performance for Hibs. He is a good player.

Boyler drifted in and out the game, and should have scored when clean through. They did mark him tightly.

Magennis played well first half and hit the post with a 20 yarder. Tired badly second half.

Doidge didnae do enough for me, when I say that, I mean as a goalscorer, he needs to get scoring goals.

Nisbet did not stop, he was very unlucky the ball did not land right for him. Another good player.

The Subs

Stevie Mallan replaced the shattered Magennis after an hour and was involved a fair bit with some very clever passing.

Jamie Gullan got the last ten minutes, replacing Stevenson as we went to a three four three to try and win it.

The Boss

I think Jack will be frustrated, he will know he set his time out correctly, he will know we were by far the better team and played some nice football. He will also know we need to be more ruthless in front of goal. He is creating a smashing squad here though, there is a real good team playing in green here, it will come.

Ross County

I didnae think much of them, the odd bit of football broke out but they are route one and ugly, they played to stop us play.

The Referee

Not good enough, he shat out of a few decisions.

The fans

A big, noisy Hibs travelling support might have gotten us over the line today, and the coffers of Dingwall would be a lot fuller than they are at the moment, nae Benders at the Wimpy, nae pints in the Mallard, nae fish suppers in the chippy at the end of the precinct, nae bed and full Scottish breakfast. C-19 is pish.

Man of the Match, well a few candidates, Paul McGinn, most weeks, lets be honest, Porto who was a monster today, Joe Newell was class, Gogic battled well, Nissie is great to watch. But for me the Man of the Match was Paul Hanlon, a captains performance.

Next up is Killie away next Saturday, another good wee day out back in the day, with great pies and Hibs Belgian Biscuits. Shitey plastic pitch though and they have started playing, will be a tough one.

Hibernian Forever!

Chose just to watch the last half hour. Murphy will improve us as his end product - shots and assists - will be ahead of what Boyle gives us. Need him back ASAP.

We can't afford for Doidge to go on another barren spell either. Needs to up his conversion rate rapido.

Fair comment, @1875 . I take it you didn't mean to leave out Two Cups, who I thought made several timely interventions, like the Scottish international he is.

Played okay and made a barrowload of chances. Should have won easy.

Loads of positives. Defensively we're solid as I've seen for a very long time. Nisbet on another day could've got a hat trick. Boyler should have buried his chance. Newell was excellent. Doidgey held it up well but he's there to score goals and they've dried up.

We lack imagination though. A lot of our play is stodgy as fuck. We rely on guys running with the ball, or slinging it into the penalty area, rather than passing our way through teams. It's old skool. Ye either like that kind of football or think it's backwards and boring. Maybe one day we'll have a team drilled to play one touch football, crisp short passes that open up other teams, but it's still a long way away.

Should have had 3 points though. Onwards.

That was how I saw it, we'd have won that game by at least a couple of goals on any other day. Frustrating but we often look so dangerous, in my opinion it's only a matter of time until we score a few

I agree with your point regarding imagination. I think this is the compromise with tightening up in midfield and at the back this season. We can also be more direct with two mobile six footers up front. That’s said we do have some very good footballers like Newell, Mallin and Magennis. I thought we played well enough today, I was disappointed in our link up play though from middle to front.

Least the sheep dropped points too.

Teams that want to finish in the top 3 or 4 every season grind results like this out. We don’t. It’s time we did. That was a very poor result today.

And let’ not kid ourselves, if we are that pathetic in front of goal in a fortnight, it’ll be the capitals lower league side heading to the final. Our attacking players need a boot up the arse.

Disappointing to drop two points today in a game that by all accounts we should have won easily. We really do need to win these sort of games though if we are going to seriously challenge Aberdeen for third spot. Sometimes you just get days like this, when we get no luck in front of goal, their keeper has a stormer, and our finishing is off. Doidge has certainly hit a barren spell but all strikers go through periods like that during a season.

Very frustrating, but best not to dwell too much on it.

Improving Kilmarnock away next Saturday on their astro turf. Will be a tough game as they all are, but let's hope we can get back to winning ways.

Why people talk about the gunts is weird, who gives a fuck about them and how they beat a fellow diddy league team. In my average day they dinnae cross my mind at any point.

You've got "The red shite" to think about though , not sure about others on here but i give zero fucks about multi millionaire English football , maybe that's the difference ?
