  1. St Johnstone v Stenhousemuir

    Home support definitely lower than usual although not as bad as it might have been. Away support must be around the 100 mark? Oh and it's freezing.
  2. Has Liam Gordon gone out on loan? Would be a more obvious starter considering he did well against them in May.
  3. Hertz v Saintz 15/5/16

    Playing for Hibs is enough. It took them about 36 seconds to start singing about the Hibees yesterday. Sad.
  4. Hertz v Saintz 15/5/16

    For Robbie Neilson to suggest that was not a red card offence and ONLY the reaction of our players got the player sent off... What an embarrassment... That Juanma should've walked yesterday as well. Cretinous man.
  5. Hertz v Saintz 15/5/16

    Absolutely lost on them. Their fans were losing the plot at EVERY decision the referee made today and I didn't see anything wrong with any of them really. He gave free kicks when their players fouled our players. They are a really physical team. Nothing wrong with that if that's the way they want to play but don't complain when the free kicks, yellow cards and inevitable reds start totting up. There's no conspiracy. We used to be a physical side but we didn't have a discipline issue. Hearts have a side full of physicality and sorely lacking in discipline. They are the orchestrators of their own downfall in that respect.
  6. Hertz v Saintz 15/5/16

    Liam takes all the abuse despite Spoony being with Hibs much longer. He does enjoy turning it on against Hearts though. Two of his best games this season have been against them. Thought he could've got booked for the fist pump at his goal. Some boy - sending hundreds of Jambos into a flailing mess in the stands. Spoony and Swanson were both fantastic today as well.I found the behaviour of the Hearts players, coaching staff and fans a bit baffling today. End of season friendly and they were actually losing the plot at the referee. The referee gave lots of fouls against them because they're dirty as f'ck. By far the most physical side we have faced this season and consistently so. They must have the highest foul, yellow and red card tally in the league, surely? Robbie Neilson's post match interview was brilliant. "Never a penalty and the reaction of the St.Johnstone players got the boy sent off". Belter.
  7. Will we? I've said several times in pre-match threads that Lappin and Craig are on level pegging and I wouldn't know which the manager would choose. Two things go in Craig's favour for me - he's younger than Lappin and he's more consistent. You could argue that Lappin has made more crucial contributions and I wouldn't argue with that but when his level drops he becomes utterly rotten. Craig is far more consistent in his level. I think both are decent players to have around the team. We may keep neither.
  8. I agree that MacLean is immobile. I don't mind 4-5-1 but I think the striker has to be Cummins who just has a greater engine than MacLean. Macca wasn't winning much against their defenders and that all changed when Cummins came on. We were playing balls over the top to MacLean who is just about as slow as its possible to be. Cummins is better in the air and has more pace so has got to be the better option if we go with one striker. I really like Macca and his contribution this season has been good but he's another one of these so called undroppable players who plays most weeks regardless of form or whether another player would actually suit the game better.
  9. More likely to see Shaughnessy moved over to right back and Anderson retain his place? Unless he's suspended or something. I can't see him ever being dropped. I like your team but can't see Wright going with that. I think we might see a couple more shit fests before he goes for anything like that.
  10. ^^^^ Clutching That performance against Motherwell was the mother of ineptitude. Can someone give me a link to the confirmation of Millar, Easton and MacKay being out. Impossible to recall McKay?
  11. More relevant is the 2014 league cup semi final against Aberdeen at Tynecastle. We had the Roseburn and this same section of the Main Stand for that match and it was enough. We didn't have a very good record in semi-finals until that point so that maybe explained a bit of apathy. We then played Aberdeen again in the semi-final of the Scottish Cup two months later and took a disappointing crowd to that game although I'm not sure that was a surprise considering Aberdeen had thumped us 4-0 in the LC semi. It's clear the club thought the Roseburn and a section of the main stand would be enough. In hindsight I think this was maybe a bit short sighted considering we have won a major trophy since those last two semi-final and took 15,000 fans to the SC final. I think we could've potentially sold the Wheatfield stand and in future if this situation ever arises I would hope the club would push for a higher allocation.
  12. Not really, but they have been shitter than us for the most part since our promotion in 2009. They finished the 2009/2010 season 7 points ahead of us on 54 in 4th place to our 47 in 8th. We finished the following 2010/2011 season 7 points ahead of them on 54 in 8th place to their 47 in 10th. 2011/2012 saw us finish 17 points ahead of them in 6th place to their 11th place. 2012/2013 there was only 5 points in it as we finished 3rd on 56 points and they finished 7th on 51 points although our post split fixtures obviously saw us play the more difficult teams in the league. 2013/2014 we finished 18 points ahead of them in 6th place as they were relegated on 35 points. This has been an example of complete polar opposites in management. Extremely poor management at Hibs and exceptionally good management at St.Johnstone. They are a vastly bigger club than us on every level and although I think we will continue to do well under the leadership of Brown and Wright, I do think Hibs are going to get promoted and find their way back to the top 3/4 of this league without doubt. They've built the best side I've seen them have since around that last semi-final.
