Full Time: Motherwell 0 v 3 Hibernian

1875

Admin
Away to Motherwell, usually enjoy a day out with my sons, nephew and mates when we play 'well, and they are often good games, espesh if ye get a seat above the scoreboard in winter. Instead it will be flummoxed on the sofa, shouting at the telly again. I like Well, they are a fans club and I happily paid the £12 to watch on on Well TV (details below). I hope they spend it wisely.

As many of those working from home, you will know work is mental, long hours, living at work no working at home really and I see less about HIbs nor have time to read about them than I used to in pre-covid days, its pish man. With that in mind, I have not seen Jack and the token player do their video yet, so nae idea of injuries, suspensions or covid related shite. I hear we might see Lewis back on the bench, and possibly Josh Magennis, although it may be a week too soon. Good news on another thread is the return of Scottie and his flowing locks to the training pitch. Magic that.

So, the team, well Well are decent on their day, so good they picked up six points and scored six goals this week without even turning up! In reality they urnae doing that well but games against them are usually good and often end to end.

So, Hibs team...

Rocky of course

Paul McGinn, so far Hibs best player this season

Porto, hopefully no making any costly mistakes

I expect to see Paul back, he too needs to have a good game.

I also expect to see SMackie keep his place, he has been very good.

I hope Alex Gogic is back, we need him.

Joe Newell is better with Alex near him.

Wide will be Murph who gets better every week he plays.

Boyler will also play, he always does, shite the week before or not.

Doidge will be back, Jack likes him.

Nissie will play, NIssie will score I think? Good laddie who needs a rub o the green.

Thats me, although shape wise you may see a back 3 with Murph or Boyler more in behind the strikers and Smackie pushing forward, who knows?

Match details here, Motherwell Vs - Hibernian FC, see you behind the goals (one day).

Hibernian Forever!

I was watching the Inverclyde virtual Christmas lights switch on, and up popped John McGinn, brother of Paul and Stephen. His dad is apparently a teacher down here.

Fair made my night.

I think we'll struggle tomorrow, because I think we're going to be inflexible and out thought by Stephen Robinson.

And I agree with both of you - I think that is exactly how we will line up, possibly hinting at injuries or lack of squad depth.

Makes it easy for managers to set up against us.

We've got some real quality in forward positions - I think key one tomorrow is Jamie Murphy who is a player who can get you out of your seat on the sofa on days like these.

I don’t think Hanlon will play, I think SDG will play right centre alongside Porteous. I hope Newel doesn’t play, I’m just not convinced about him. He can play some lovely fitba, but not often enough for me, not by a long way. To contradict myself though, when he plays well, we play well.
Murphy and Nisbet are key players for us. Dodge is one of the strangest players I have ever seen. Sometimes he looks like a total cart horse, other times he scores hat tricks and his flicks and hold up play are class.
We need a good win to get back on this feel good train. We have had a few high scoring games against them over the years, so probably nil nil!!!!!!

433 with the ball 451 without it. But pretty much how I'd have it.

Gullan showed in the last game that he deserves to have his chance, Boyle been shite for weeks now and should be dropped. Doidge needs to improve and up his game also, I am honestly not looking forward to this game as I feel Motherwell will have too much for us especially in the middle f the park.

A message to you, radge
Gogic is a must in our midfield. The big question is Doidge, he either starts or doesn't play at all. There has been small signs of improvement from Boyle to start him (I know he would anyway) and Murphy should start, which suggest no Doidge. Mallan or Hallberg is anyone's guess.

Motherwell have a very good midfield so we really will have to compete properly in that area if we are going to get either a win or a draw tomorrow. They finished third last season (although I realise this is tainted with the abrupt ending to the season) but they have some good players and I rate Stephen Robinson as a manager.

Our away form was good earlier on in the season as we were defending well and were hard to break down, and with our pace down the flanks and goal threat up front we were winning a lot of games. We must get back to that as soon as possible. We have to become hard to beat again and if we do that we will start to win games regularly again in this league.

1-1.

The game is on Alba at 6 if anyone is unable to catch it at 3...
Out for lunch, will just wait for that instead.

Honestly cannot wait to get back to going to games. My interest in watching all football is as low as it could be, but you'd expect to be totally focused on Hibs. Even that is taking a bit of a tanking these last couple of months.

Boyle shouldn't start but will. I'll be surprised if we get a result today. If we do it'll likely be Marciano is in top form or Murphy & Nisbet are producing magic. I've no real appetite to watch this today on telly. What I'd give though to be there in the bitter cold.
