You cannot get a retrospective red for denying a goalscoring opportunity, only for serious foul play or violent conduct.

I didn't know that (clearly). Ref clearly knew what he was doing.

Sevco game a noon k.o. - but at least it's still on the Saturday.

Rumours that Yinitit away also to be a Sat evening ko, with Hibs home being a Friday night game.

What did he say?

The former Rangers and Hamburg defender has now insisted it was his call to leave the Scottish Premiership. He told Belgian outlet GVA : “I had come back to Scotland mainly because I wanted to play as often as possible and at Aberdeen I was able to do that from the start.

"But just like a few years ago, I wanted to leave Scotland again. I always want to play in a good European league.”

Already we’ve dropped a fair amount of points from winning positions this season 
Not good enough 

Aye that’s 8 points we have dropped when in solid winning positions. We were victims of a terrible decision today but that doesn’t / shouldn’t mask another woeful performance….. before and after the red card

That was horrendous today. Capitulated immediately in the second half and made a Hibs second just a matter of time. If Miovski had scored his sitter it probably would have been more than we deserved.

Even at one nil and despite Hibs not creating much before the penalty we were barely in the game. Invited them onto us far too much.

Stewart has some decent defensive qualities but passing is not one of them. If they really are going to insist on passing it out from the back regularly he does seem a more and more strange signing. At this point I think we would have been better holidng onto Ash Taylor than either Stewart or Declan Gallagher before him.

I am concerned by the lack of control we seem to have in games at the moment. Even at 1-0 and with a full complement of players, and although Hibs didn't really create much of note before the penalty, I never felt like we had much of a grip on the game. Granted that we were missing a body in there today with Clarkson suspended and Barron injured, but it has also been there when we have been playing with three central midfielders. Hopefully Barron's return will help to address this to a degree. I was hoping Ramadani would offer a bit more in this regard, but I'm not really seeing it from him yet. Polvara is just an empty jersey.

In hindsight, it would likely have been a better bet to take off Miovski or Besuijen after the red card and keep Duk on. Duk would have at least given us an option to go direct, and probably forced Hibs to drop a bit deeper to limit the space behind. They didn't have to do that with Miovski, who was having a really poor game anyway. Basically, from the moment the second half started, it was just a matter of counting the minutes until Hibs went ahead, because we were pinned deep with virtually no out-ball. You just knew there was no danger that we were getting back into it when they did score, either. 

I thought Roos was good. Coulson too. Just a shame that he seems to be made of paper.
