The standard of the performances

Zab delighted where we are in terms of points just want improvements in our overall play like a lot on here. I recall the Zombies weren’t up to much before they played us yet they beat us 6 - 1 when our defence got dominated by a 30 odd yr old striker, that’s my concern.
Im not concerned about something that happened last season under a different Manager.

Agree there is plenty room for improvement in our play and performances. But we’ve developed a very nice habit of winning ugly, something any successful team needs to do over the course of a season.

Ite amazing how wages differ.

Neymar is absolutely honking....but paid more per week than every Hibs player in a year.

Football is fucked!

He is is left wing play boy....who gets pushed into media circus.

Footballers that just play football...is so much easier.

That's where I'm at

I was saying for ages how shite Hecky's football was and it wasn't until a 6-1 tanking at Ibrox that folk started to get on his back

The defence has been excellent 5 games in but no way can we keep playing like this
Hibs are a fuckin shambles eh?
Only 11 points off the bottom!
Conceded 2 goals all season,2 fuckin goals,not acceptable!!
WTF is Jack Ross playing at?
Sack him now.

Seriously tho,lighten up,have you ever posted anything positive?
If you won the lottery you'd whine about the paper the cheque was printed on.
Deary fuckin me.

I think the problem is with the lockdown and us being on tv all the time more people are actually watching us away than the 1000 or so who travel to every game. Unrealistic expectations from the armchair loyal who would normally be buzzing at the these results coming in via soccer Saturday.

Many times I've been to Perth and on the receiving end of some skelpings from St johnston teams who on paper were not better than us. Likewise livi and united in recent weeks.

Defence is looking good and we are scoring goals. Looking forward to next Sunday already.

My main concern for the performances is the lack of drive. JR seems to want little to no press players back off and invite the pressure. We have spent a lot of time defending within our own box. We are yet to concede through open play (thanks to the ref today for helping that =P ) but there have been some heart palpitation moments at the back where our defence have been off the pace/game. This could be like every other team simply because we are trying to break the rust out of the muscles from the weird lay off. The inviting pressure seems to be JR way of then breaking on teams with our pace we should be ripping people apart on this aspect, however we are woeful on the break downs and lose the ball 90% of the time so we get little to no breakaways in the 90min. JR may need to have a serious look at how he wants this to go forward as at the moment his players cant get the ball to each other or make it stick at all going forward.

Okay step back and perspective time.

I didn’t think we were great yesterday.

Checking the initial post match stats - the xG ones which are far more interesting aren’t available until midweek - the game was pretty even whichever marker you want to use.

Matching a St Johnstone side, one of the better teams in the league away from home? Realistically that’s an acceptable standard?

The The Sheep game next weekend is a real benchmark for where we are.
This is it for me. If that lot can still come to ER and niggle, kick and game manage their way to a win while we are playing the way we are then it's a worry.

Then I remember the fact last time they were here JR had us battering them 3-0.

Who knows what's going to happen just now. I'll settle for beating then any which way really.

Maybe we did and St Johnstone played well also and we cancelled each other out?
Callum Davidson *thats his name eh?* thought we were good in the first half too.
Tbf he showed decent awareness to change the game and force us into change too.
I think yesterday was more tactical than people realise.

Not a great game, but thats what happens.

What’s an unrealistic expectation? There isn’t an player in the Dundee Utd or St J that jump out that would improve our squad ( Shankland exception, but wasn’t playing), our resources are far greater so why is it unrealistic to put in far better showings against teams?

yes results and our defence has improved and it’s great to be getting points on the board but I think fans are entitlement to be concerned and miffed by the style and standard of performance middle to front?

Hopefu!ly the better performances will follow the excellent results we have had so far.
I think our biggest problem , is our attacking playmakers Boyle and Horgan have produced very little the last few games. I'm pretty confident JR dosen t say to them before the game " I want you to go out and play shite. Don't take your man on, and try and let the game bypass you"
There was a couple of times yesterday that Boyle , rather than try and get the ball under control, just had lazy wild thrashes at it.Very unlike him. Horgan was a man down, Gogic struggled to find a green jersey most of the time, and Allan was blowing out his arse after 30 mins.
Taking all that into account we done well getting a win. We must be doing something right!!

Still early days..whatever you think of the entertainment value (and admittedly mostly its not pretty atm) we have found a system that seems to work in terms of results. That will do for me just now. Mwell have a decent squad of players and seem to be doing the opposite of us..easier on the eye but can't seem to get any consistency in results. I know which I prefer.

There is a happy medium tho obviously.we need more legs in midfield..we look a bit slow in there..and the balance hasn't been right...yet..but it will come. Hopefully we'll do something recruitment wise soon in that area.

In the.meantime I'm happy to watch us keep grinding out hard fought victories. There is no lack of effort that is for certain..which in itself is a good sign. Players all battling for each other and a decent spirit in the squad which gives grounds for optimism.

Agreed. Also playing at away fixtures with no crowds shouldn’t be any different to playing a home game.The only advantage to home teams is if they have plastic pitches but as time goes by the away teams are even getting used to that. Think we should count ourselves fortunate that we’ve played so called inferior teams and a couple of games were we got decisions in our favour yesterday being one of them.

So since we pumped livi 4-1 and then theydrew 0-0 with the huns then surely that means it’s an easy win for us vs them next month?
