New Managers Please - Hibs vs Accies 16th Feb

Recommended Posts

The 'barge' from Sowah on Gray was absolutely brutal  - there should have been a red card for it really because he challenged for the ball  and.....bumped into the Hibs captain, for goodness sake, at Easter Road !!!!   Who does he think he is, an opposition player or something?? Gray was lucky he didn't suffer some form of really, really bad injury and if the worst had happened             - which it really could have due to the excessive force put into the 'bump' - death.  
Hibs deserved their win - well done champs - but getting penalties for being bumped into certainly helps ! 


At any point during this shambles of a post did you reconsider for a moment?

they were both looking at the ball and they both went for the ball and they collided - 50/50 though Gray made some meal of it

Gray was about 2 feet higher than Sowah, had already headed the ball when the collision happened.

If Sowah had his eye on the ball, he wasnt exactly making any attempt to play it - he was barely off the ground when he hit Gray, and hence gave the ref a very very easy decision to make.

I understand why you might think it wasnt a penalty.........but I am equally 100% sure you would have wanted it if it happened in our box.

You'd be miffed had it been the other way

anyhoo, Rangers on Sunday when I imagine a litany of bewildering decisions will challenge the TV commentary teams to come up with plausible explanations

Wouldn't have been the other way, since our grizzled and weatherbeaten back four have about 80 years playing experience between them and don't give away those kinds of penalties. Johnson and Porteous might be callow, reckless and mental enough, but Johnson hospitalizes, on average, 3.5 opposing players per game, so he's currently banned by Special Order of the SFA Star Chamber, and Ryan Porteous is out for the season, after finding out the hard way you can't just grit your teeth and play through a bad case of broken kneecaps.

As for Rangers, I believe they'll be missing Morelos and McGregor, so you might actually get a result by playing football, rather than just preparing the usual faux-outrage at the match officiating a week in advance.

Well I guess we'll never know.  I believe that's 9 goals without retaliation this season. Can't see us playing them again in the foreseeable years.

I'm glad you got the greenies you were desperate for M9.

There's one for you m8. Seeing as there aren't enough Hamilton fans on here (or in general) to give you your fix.

Be generous lads.

I have to agree with the crayon eaters on this one that it was a penalty. Some of their posters are acting like Dundee fans though. They"d be as well just combining their two club threads.

I'm not surprised that Hibs fans thought it was a penalty.  I didn't at the time and still don't. 

I am surprised however that someone cared sufficiently to actually copy and paste the laws of the game in response. I now understand that said laws are never misapplied or ignored by referees, who never make mistakes. After all, if any of those things happened we would have to invent a disciplinary process, an appeal process against said disciplinary process, appoint a compliance officer and then endure the 'analysis' of every debatable decision on Sportscene come a Sunday evening. But no, the laws say one thing and no referee deviates from them at all. Ever. Glad that's cleared up.

Cheers Hibs, the last bastion of fair play and moral champions of the game. Or not, dependent on your point of view.
