    Just back and Hibs strolled that one....

    A more recogisable Hibs team ran out in front of a small travelling support in a dull, dreich and drizzly Err today and first half played some very decent football to put the points to bed before half time. We improved as the second went on too and it could have been far more than four, ask Grant Holt!

    Coming through the turnstiles in Err, you step from 2017 to 1947 in a millisecond, thank Sauzee we are out of this league, what a $#@!e hole. I stood with Big G, Greenman and Fiery Jack on the terrace in the drizzle, whilst my kids, mate and daughter chose the dryer shed behind the goal. I could hear the Err dafties 10 feet from us on the other side of the fence. The hillbillies enjoyed singing about paedos and fenians. They must have been hurting after their big team were humiliated earlier in the day up in Govan.

    Laidlaw and Forster kept their places, Daz, Captain Dave and Lewis returned along with Frazer Fyvie, SJM, Humphrey and Boyle in midfield and Holt and Jase up front.

    Hibs were very good first half, indeed we should have been 4 or 5 up by halftime, with Jase and Holt missing easy first half chances. However Jason did score a fine header and Boyler followed up with a finely drilled shot to put us 2 up at half time. Second half was all Hibs again, with Keats coming on to score a decent goal, then Jase rounded off a decent Hibs performance from a difficult angle to kill the Hunest Laddies off.

    They were poor, Hibs were more than decent.

    The team

    Laidlaw had a wonder save to stop them getting a consolation goal, otherwise he had little to do.

    David Gray, the winning goal scorer in the Scottish Cup final, when capataning Hibernian on May 21st 2016 was booked for a solid challenge that was not a foul, but didnae really enjoy playing behind Humphrey.

    Darren McGregor, is a class defender, he never gives the ball away and is Hibs through and through. Solid.

    Jordon Forster was made captain today and had a fine game, although Harkins did try to give him a hard game, he sailed it. I think he is nervous about that shoulder of his?

    Lewis had a smashing game I thought. A premier player for me.

    It was lovely to see Fraser Fyvie back, he was excellent, especially first half, he and John McGinn ran the show.

    John McGinn almost tried too hard today, he and Fraser had a smashing first half.

    Humphrey isnae fit but did get down the right line a few times and stuck the ball in.

    Boyler played left wing and I thought he had a good game, played really well and scored a good goal too.

    Jase scored two, might have had two more. His header was very clever, his shot was difficult but well executed. I fair enjoy watching Jason when he is playing well.

    Yet again, Grant Holt did well today, although he too should have had a brace, and missed a complete sitter right on the line. When reminded of that by our very own Greenman, he looked miffed then laughed it off.

    Neil Lennon had his suit on today and sat in the stand. Him and Gary thought this might be a tough one and set up accordingly. I like Hibs when they play this way, its good to watch, so credit there. I would NOT lose Fraser Fyvie Neil, he ran that midfield today.

    The Subs

    Keats replaced Mrs Slocombe after an hour and had a good half hour, scored a decent goal and but for a pass from Holt might have scored two. Played well.

    Boyler went off for Shinnie after 70 minutes but Shinnie didnae do too much.

    Around the same time young Murray replaced SJM and had flashes of skill, One to look forward to I think?

    I thought Err were rotten, their daft wee laddie fans sectarian arseholes and the club shop the best stocked club shop I have ever been in. The ground is a shambles though. I wont miss us playing them.

    Ready for this, the referee had a decent enough game, other than missing one bad attempt at strangulation on Grant Holt.

    Small Hibs support of I would say 5 - 600 but then there is nothing to play for and it is down to the die hards and ground baggers.

    My Hibernian man of the match was difficult, Darren is always good, Jase scored two, Boyler played well, but for me it was the excellent Fraser Fyvie, he ran the show today.

    Get along and cheer the champions next Saturday if you can guys, I expect a good game with saints playing well just now.

    Hibernian Forever.

    Good to hear FF played well, i like him, felt for him last week.
    But thanks again Mark... its a pleasure reading an honest assessment from a good Hibby irrelevant of the score.
    Lots more pleasant reading next season

    Thanks for the report...

    Good to see Hibs finishing the league campaign strongly with the pressure off. We are now over 70 points.
    Next week's game should be a good one to finish our 3 year Championship stint with....hopefully forever.
    St Mirren have been superb since New Year and will be all out to get the draw they need to officially avoid the play-off.
    They might not even need the draw.

    Have to agree with the OP - Fraser Fyvie was different class today - great to see that attitude from him as he could easily have hid today after ladt week. Top top player. Well done Fraser

    Good report. I was very impressed with fyvie and would have said he was our Motm.

    Surprised ayr weren't more up for it, never seen a team go down with such a lack of fight.

    I think their club shop is like that as they are legally being made to change their badge so can't keep anything with the badge on it. So that's why they were selling it all so cheap. The t shirts were like £3 for any.

    Some great runs from Martin Boyle there...and a nice finish for his goal.
    In fact all the goals were well taken with some excellent build-up play.
    You have to factor in that Ayr United looked very poor and a relegated team, but Hibs looked like champions with the pressure well and truly off.

    Thanks for that Darren. We all know what Fraser can do consistantly and he did it very well yesterday. We also know what Boyle is capable of at times and he was pretty much unplayable yesterday

    Another great write up.

    Ayr Twitter reported the Hibs crowd as 814.

    More than it looked, but good turn out for a meaningless game for Hibs. More 'diehards' than we realise, which is great.

    Thought we looked very much like a Premier league side and Ayr look like a relegated side.

    Thanks for sharing mate. From the footage we looked to be more direct in running towards goal. Some good play for the goals.
    Its Liam Henderson to deliver...
    And David Gray has scored! The captain!
    Hibs are standing on the brink of history!

    Using Boyle as an inverted winger is a nice alternative to the inconsistency of his final ball - cutting in he must be a nightmare for defenders.

    As Mark eluded to following missing a total sitter by Grant Holt, several minutes later, close to us, Grant shouted expletives, to a fellow player for making an arse of things. St. Pat's Branch member Greenman (Paddy M) repeated immediately what he had just shouted, in an impeccable Carlisle accent. Grant stopped and looked up to our small group. Paddy shouted to him in jest 'That was for missing that f****** sitter'. Grant with a broad smile replied 'Which one?'. Quality, nice to see some characters still in fitba'.

    Cheers Mark. Lewis Stevenson should be the first name on our team sheet every week regardless of the opposition. I'm glad this seems to be the case. Our most decorated player and living legend. 💚🏆
