Reality Check.

Time we all acknowledged Hibs are just not very good. If Aberdeen hadnt dropped 28 points since New Year they'd be miles ahead of the Hibees. Yes, I get the irony if Hibs hadn't dropped so many but what ever way you dress it up Aberdeen and Celtic have been abysmal and way below their best.

Despite this there seems to be a large element of our support who thinks we should celebrate if we finish third but my God we flatter to deceive.

Years ago Alex Miller told the fans "if we stay at ER we will have to sell our best young players for years to come". The fans didn't want to move so we had to use the funds raised by selling to rebuild the ground and ultimately adding a training centre. A fact ironically held against Rod Petrie despite Alex' warning us all. Fickle fans eh 🙄

Decades later we have everything in place but we are still floundering around struggling to beat teams the size of St J, County and Livi. That's inexcusable given the investment in the clubs infrastructure.

It's simply beggers belief there are fans who still shrug their shoulders after results like today and don't question why we are not showing the benifit of all that investment. We must have more ancillary staff than St Johnstone have players in their squad! 🤨

As a footnote: did you watch last night's "view from the terrace"? It had a piece on Hamiltons win against Hibs in the 2014 play-off final. Full of their fans recollection of the day. The tears, the joy......

One quote was missing and it came on the day from their manager Alex Neil. While being interviewed he was obviously elated. He lifted his arm and gestured round the stands saying "Hibs have all this!"

He was right. Yet we were relegated and a club with 2000 fans, a plastic pitch and two stands, took our place.

There are no excuses now. No excuses whatsoever and I include covid given all the clubs are in the same predicament.

Good post as a club in general we very rarely punch above .
The football this year is one of the worst I have seen from a Hibs team.

Brilliant post and just makes you wonder

The solution is simple or so you'd think..

When a team gets relegated it is because they are crap.. Nothing else to describe them , the league table never lies.. The dross that gets you relegated is then bit by bit cleared out , or so you'd think.. Not at Hibs though where we keep them on , give them testimonials and even further down the line hatch a plan to put them on the coaching staff.. The stench of failure is there for everyone to see and the rot of mediocrity is totally ingrained within in the club.. While the club is handing out contracts to players based purely on sentiment then we will never move forward....

Present day , we have a captain who was handed a 4 year deal despite having one of the worst injury records in modern time. Our present captain has to be one of the worst leaders I have seen.. Going into semi finals against Hearts quoting that ' its just another game ' is unforgivable. One of the worst things you can say to describe a game of this magnitude.. We lose the first goal in games and subsequently we fold and inevitably end up losing. A bunch of players who are not willing to take responsibility and attempt to grab a game by the scruff of the neck and have some positive influence.. Our captain has no leadership skills , I cannot remember at any point seeing him give someone a roasting or attempt to motivate the team during a match...

Guys like hanlon , gray , stevenson and mcgregor all have to be cleared out I am afraid.. All four of them played their part in seeing us struggle for three seasons in a pub league struggling against dross like QOTS , Alloa and Dumbarton to name a few... I know they helped win us the scottish cup but those days are past now , sentiment should not come into it.

The clubs fans then are accused by the daily record of assaulting all 11 Huns players and instead of making a fuss and banning the paper for its lies , they then proceed to give them a tour of the training facilities..

Also, in The Sun , a Hibs supporting journalist , Kenny Millar for those who don't his name prints exactly the story with the the same accusations and the club then give him a job at the club because his brother works there.. Talk about being soft as shit , how he got past the interview stage after that story is simply laughable..

People at the top of HIbs need to grow a set and stop being such a bunch of pushovers or we will always be soft.. Hopefully under \Ron Gordon this will change but I am not holding my breath......
