    Just back and that was four goals, three points and a conversion

    Hibs started their competitive season today against Montrose with a four goal win over the part timers. Two goals in each half were more than enough to take Hibs to the top of the section table after one round of matches and they will go up the road to Dingwall for a much sterner test on Friday night, having given a few youngsters the opportunity to have a run out this afternoon.
    Playing with 3 at the back, Porteous got his first competitive outing alongside McGregor and Fonts, with the usual pairing of Gray and Lewis at wing back. Dylan, SJM and Boyle played across the middle with Fraser Murray sitting just in behind his namesake Simon. There was no place in the squad for the returning Whittaker or walkabout Ambrose. Danny Swanson was missing through suspension.

    Hibs started brightly with both Murrays, McGeouch and Stevenson impressing. Gary Murray's laddie was a real handful for Montrose and his former team mate, Sean Dillon, was charged with trying to keep the eager forward quiet. Dillon, it has to be said, for my money was the fittest and best of the Montrose players - his recent full time football looking obvious compared to the wide range of all-inclusive holiday beer bellies on show in away strips reminiscent of yon Hearts strip in season 1985-86. You know, the grey and white one? The one they included in the book The Wrong Colour of Strips? Aye, that one...and it was to prove as lucky for the opposition as that 86 vintage one did for the Gunts.

    The official attendance was just over 5000 and I have to say that from our seats in the West we couldnt fathom why it was so high. Perhaps there were more in the West than elsewhere and that accounts for this perception. The East was very sparsely populated. The FF not any better. There were around 200 away supporters who had made the long trip down the road. Maybe all those West Stand prawn sandwiches were also the reason for the 200 gulls that descended from nowhere around half time and then didn't beggar off again...

    Back to the first half and Dylan was pulling the strings in the middle of the park, showing real 360 vision and movement. He is a joy to watch in full flow and both he and Fraser Murray were looking to play in the ginger version at every opportunity. Lewis was getting down the left flank regularly and delivered a couple of tasty crosses from the goal line that were troublesome for the visiting defence. It was one of these crosses that was met by the head of yon Simon version of the Murray clan and converted for the opening goal after 12 minutes. And it wasn't too long before his younger clansman Fraser added to the tally when he fired a great low shot beyond the keeper and his Alice Band after 22 minutes had passed. The build up play between him and Simon was a joy to watch. And that was the theme for today for the red haired son of Gary. His link up play was very good, his goal return good and his overall play good. It may only have been Montrose but it matters not one jot. He is getting more assured with every passing game in a green and white jersey and that can only be a good thing for us all.

    Squirrel, who was less effective today than last week, had nearly scored a cracking goal himself earlier in proceedings but his effort came back off the post just moments before Hibs opened the scoring. Super was more Standard John McGinn today but he was hit several times in the opening period of the game with some meaty challenges going in from some of these players who certainly didn't need an all day breakfast.

    Shot after shot came, chance after chance. The keeper made a decent stop from Simon with his feet before a Sir DG header went over the bar. Another effort from Dylan went wide.

    At half time Hibs were rightly applauded off and those of us who had toddled along to ER for the game were very much glad we had done so. It was an enjoyable 45 minutes. Murray (S) made it 3-0 soon into the second half when he timed his run and got the better of his former team mate Dillon, to header home part two of his brace. Hibs had not started the half well, with some sloppy passing, some wandering by Darren putting the back three at risk and passes going astray. They were soon "telt" by the manager to get their act together. Hibs hooked Dylan after less than an hour - why risk anything with a player so precious but so, well, precious? Also leaving proceedings midway through the half were Fonts and then finally Murray. Martin, Shaw and Graham replacing them accordingly.

    Graham, who missed the most horrendous penalty during the week, was given a chance to make amends late in the second half after a spot kick was awarded by Son of Dallas. There was a ripple of consternation around the stadium before a round of applause replaced it on his run up. I thought I heard a couple of boos but couldn't be sure. There were certainly smert ersed shouts to the effect he should remember the Lions tour was finished. He's not the answer, I'm struggling to remember what they thought the question was in the first place, but he is our player taking a penalty in a competitive match. We need to kinda remember that if he stays. That said, he is at the front of the queue for the boo boys this season.

    Hibs ran out worthy winners. The second half not so entertaining or fluent as the first but tonight we sit atop of the league in our section. Next up is a trip to Dingwall on Friday night and hopefully as many fans that can make it will do so. £12 for adults on the gate and there are supporters buses running.

    Marciano - square root of hee haw to do. Clean sheet, clean shorts.
    Gray - solid outing and could have scored a header in the second half courtesy of another cross from Lewis
    Fonts - good hour's outing before being replaced
    McGregor - in charge and the back and untroubled
    Lewis - several good crosses in today, the best at the back for me...just ahead of...
    Porteous - who looks years ahead of his age and stage. He is going to be needed I suspect when Gray and McGregor are suspended
    Boyle - okay but nowhere near the level of impact as last weekend
    SJM - not Super, mair Standard John today. By Sauzee he has beefed up over the holiday though.
    McGeouch - a Dylan masterclass. 360 play. He's a star when fit and in form.
    F Murray - good first half, some lovely link play and a good goal.
    S Murray - he gets better and better. Now we just need to sign a foil for him.

    Graham - scored his pen under a lot of pressure.
    Martin - neat and tidy play as ever
    Shaw - should have scored, missing an open goal late on.

    Man of the Match - between Dylan, Wee Murray, Lewis and Big Murray. Wee Murray got it at the game, I'm going with Big Murray. He ran all day, caused real consternation, scored two very good goals and looks like he is absolutely having a ball.

    See you all on BT Sport or at Dingwall on Friday
    Hibs are standing on the brink of history...

    Agree with that, imo Murrays movement is a lot better than Cummings as is his heading and work rate. He is matching Cummings goal scoring just now so I see him as an improvement.

    Fwiw it was a tight angle for Shaw at the end and I think he tried to cut it back for the player on the edge of the 6 yard box

    We were right behind him (as you were) and had a good line of sight for the angle. I don't think he did try to cut it back. He maybe actually just went "with the wrong foot" for the position he found himself in.

    Thankfully, it matters not and he will move on.

    Pretty much agree with all of SKII's report. Though regarding Shaw's miss at the end, it was a sitter and yet I did a little jig of delight when he missed....£10 @ 8/1 on 4-0 will do that to a man

    Decent pre-season work-out played out in front of a sparse crowd. There is just no real appetite for these League Cup section games at this time of the year I'm afraid. Missed the first 10 minutes as my new ST card would not scan at the turnstyle. Had to go and queue up at the ticket office and got a paper ticket whilst they took my ST away to check it as there seems to be a problem with it. Anyone else have any similar problems ?

    Against very poor part-time opposition Hibs strolled the game and played some good football and scored some good goals. Very impressed with Ryan Porteous and Fraser Murray. Simon Murray I thought was superb. His movement off the ball is excellent as is his workrate. He took his goals well and probably should have had a couple more denied only by a wee lack of composure and some good goalkeeping. That was not a sitter missed by Oli Shaw at the end IMO. Had a great view of it high up in the East...he was at a very tight angle and it fell on to his much weaker left foot. The half chance he had just before that where he had time to line up his shot but missed the target will have annoyed him much more.

    Soft penalty award I thought (but then I hate the handball in the box rule), but I'm glad Brian Graham scored (just) as for some reason he has become the fall-guy for some fans. He is no world beater for sure, but he gives his all, links up well and is decent in the air on the very rare occasions when he has a accurate cross to attack.

    Hopefully another positive result at Dingwall on Friday night which will be a stern test for sure.

    I'm sure there will be a decent demand for tickets for the Final.

    Hibs started their competitive season today against Montrose with a four goal win over the part timers. Two goals in each half were more than enough to take Hibs to the top of the section table after one round of matches and they will go up the road to Dingwall for a much sterner test on Friday night, having given a few youngsters the opportunity to have a run out this afternoon.
    Playing with 3 at the back, Porteous got his first competitive outing alongside McGregor and Fonts, with the usual pairing of Gray and Lewis at wing back. Dylan, SJM and Boyle played across the middle with Fraser Murray sitting just in behind his namesake Simon. There was no place in the squad for the returning Whittaker or walkabout Ambrose. Danny Swanson was missing through suspension.

    Hibs started brightly with both Murrays, McGeouch and Stevenson impressing. Gary Murray's laddie was a real handful for Montrose and his former team mate, Sean Dillon, was charged with trying to keep the eager forward quiet. Dillon, it has to be said, for my money was the fittest and best of the Montrose players - his recent full time football looking obvious compared to the wide range of all-inclusive holiday beer bellies on show in away strips reminiscent of yon Hearts strip in season 1985-86. You know, the grey and white one? The one they included in the book The Wrong Colour of Strips? Aye, that one...and it was to prove as lucky for the opposition as that 86 vintage one did for the Gunts.

    The official attendance was just over 5000 and I have to say that from our seats in the West we couldnt fathom why it was so high. Perhaps there were more in the West than elsewhere and that accounts for this perception. The East was very sparsely populated. The FF not any better. There were around 200 away supporters who had made the long trip down the road. Maybe all those West Stand prawn sandwiches were also the reason for the 200 gulls that descended from nowhere around half time and then didn't beggar off again...

    Back to the first half and Dylan was pulling the strings in the middle of the park, showing real 360 vision and movement. He is a joy to watch in full flow and both he and Fraser Murray were looking to play in the ginger version at every opportunity. Lewis was getting down the left flank regularly and delivered a couple of tasty crosses from the goal line that were troublesome for the visiting defence. It was one of these crosses that was met by the head of yon Simon version of the Murray clan and converted for the opening goal after 12 minutes. And it wasn't too long before his younger clansman Fraser added to the tally when he fired a great low shot beyond the keeper and his Alice Band after 22 minutes had passed. The build up play between him and Simon was a joy to watch. And that was the theme for today for the red haired son of Gary. His link up play was very good, his goal return good and his overall play good. It may only have been Montrose but it matters not one jot. He is getting more assured with every passing game in a green and white jersey and that can only be a good thing for us all.

    Squirrel, who was less effective today than last week, had nearly scored a cracking goal himself earlier in proceedings but his effort came back off the post just moments before Hibs opened the scoring. Super was more Standard John McGinn today but he was hit several times in the opening period of the game with some meaty challenges going in from some of these players who certainly didn't need an all day breakfast.

    Shot after shot came, chance after chance. The keeper made a decent stop from Simon with his feet before a Sir DG header went over the bar. Another effort from Dylan went wide.

    At half time Hibs were rightly applauded off and those of us who had toddled along to ER for the game were very much glad we had done so. It was an enjoyable 45 minutes. Murray (S) made it 3-0 soon into the second half when he timed his run and got the better of his former team mate Dillon, to header home part two of his brace. Hibs had not started the half well, with some sloppy passing, some wandering by Darren putting the back three at risk and passes going astray. They were soon "telt" by the manager to get their act together. Hibs hooked Dylan after less than an hour - why risk anything with a player so precious but so, well, precious? Also leaving proceedings midway through the half were Fonts and then finally Murray. Martin, Shaw and Graham replacing them accordingly.

    Graham, who missed the most horrendous penalty during the week, was given a chance to make amends late in the second half after a spot kick was awarded by Son of Dallas. There was a ripple of consternation around the stadium before a round of applause replaced it on his run up. I thought I heard a couple of boos but couldn't be sure. There were certainly smert ersed shouts to the effect he should remember the Lions tour was finished. He's not the answer, I'm struggling to remember what they thought the question was in the first place, but he is our player taking a penalty in a competitive match. We need to kinda remember that if he stays. That said, he is at the front of the queue for the boo boys this season.

    Hibs ran out worthy winners. The second half not so entertaining or fluent as the first but tonight we sit atop of the league in our section. Next up is a trip to Dingwall on Friday night and hopefully as many fans that can make it will do so. £12 for adults on the gate and there are supporters buses running.

    Marciano - square root of hee haw to do. Clean sheet, clean shorts.
    Gray - solid outing and could have scored a header in the second half courtesy of another cross from Lewis
    Fonts - good hour's outing before being replaced
    McGregor - in charge and the back and untroubled
    Lewis - several good crosses in today, the best at the back for me...just ahead of...
    Porteous - who looks years ahead of his age and stage. He is going to be needed I suspect when Gray and McGregor are suspended
    Boyle - okay but nowhere near the level of impact as last weekend
    SJM - not Super, mair Standard John today. By Sauzee he has beefed up over the holiday though.
    McGeouch - a Dylan masterclass. 360 play. He's a star when fit and in form.
    F Murray - good first half, some lovely link play and a good goal.
    S Murray - he gets better and better. Now we just need to sign a foil for him.

    Graham - scored his pen under a lot of pressure.
    Martin - neat and tidy play as ever
    Shaw - should have scored, missing an open goal late on.

    Man of the Match - between Dylan, Wee Murray, Lewis and Big Murray. Wee Murray got it at the game, I'm going with Big Murray. He ran all day, caused real consternation, scored two very good goals and looks like he is absolutely having a ball.

    See you all on BT Sport or at Dingwall on Friday
    Thanks SK11, S Murray was my motm, his chasing down will get us opportunities out of nothing. Porteous , Stevenson and McGeouch also had decent performances imo, , 3 more quality signings will see us have a good season.

    Cheers for the report, had to work, seems legislation allowing holidays for other folk is actually enforceable.

    Hope my gut feeling about S Murray being a bad signing was wrong, he's doing all that can be asked of him to prove his talents.

    I'm really hoping the youngsters coming through are given a chance this season. Especially keen on young Murray. Might be harder for Porteous given the competition at centre back, but I'm sure opportunities will come his way..thought his post match interview was impressive, very mature.

    As Neil Lennon said himself yesterday was part of the pre season with a "competitive edge".

    Fans know that and that's why the crowd was poor.

    I'm looking forward to the final.

    Hibs started their competitive season today against Montrose with a four goal win over the part timers. Two goals in each half were more than enough to take Hibs to the top of the section table after one round of matches and they will go up the road to Dingwall for a much sterner test on Friday night, having given a few youngsters the opportunity to have a run out this afternoon.
    Playing with 3 at the back, Porteous got his first competitive outing alongside McGregor and Fonts, with the usual pairing of Gray and Lewis at wing back. Dylan, SJM and Boyle played across the middle with Fraser Murray sitting just in behind his namesake Simon. There was no place in the squad for the returning Whittaker or walkabout Ambrose. Danny Swanson was missing through suspension.

    Hibs started brightly with both Murrays, McGeouch and Stevenson impressing. Gary Murray's laddie was a real handful for Montrose and his former team mate, Sean Dillon, was charged with trying to keep the eager forward quiet. Dillon, it has to be said, for my money was the fittest and best of the Montrose players - his recent full time football looking obvious compared to the wide range of all-inclusive holiday beer bellies on show in away strips reminiscent of yon Hearts strip in season 1985-86. You know, the grey and white one? The one they included in the book The Wrong Colour of Strips? Aye, that one...and it was to prove as lucky for the opposition as that 86 vintage one did for the Gunts.

    The official attendance was just over 5000 and I have to say that from our seats in the West we couldnt fathom why it was so high. Perhaps there were more in the West than elsewhere and that accounts for this perception. The East was very sparsely populated. The FF not any better. There were around 200 away supporters who had made the long trip down the road. Maybe all those West Stand prawn sandwiches were also the reason for the 200 gulls that descended from nowhere around half time and then didn't beggar off again...

    Back to the first half and Dylan was pulling the strings in the middle of the park, showing real 360 vision and movement. He is a joy to watch in full flow and both he and Fraser Murray were looking to play in the ginger version at every opportunity. Lewis was getting down the left flank regularly and delivered a couple of tasty crosses from the goal line that were troublesome for the visiting defence. It was one of these crosses that was met by the head of yon Simon version of the Murray clan and converted for the opening goal after 12 minutes. And it wasn't too long before his younger clansman Fraser added to the tally when he fired a great low shot beyond the keeper and his Alice Band after 22 minutes had passed. The build up play between him and Simon was a joy to watch. And that was the theme for today for the red haired son of Gary. His link up play was very good, his goal return good and his overall play good. It may only have been Montrose but it matters not one jot. He is getting more assured with every passing game in a green and white jersey and that can only be a good thing for us all.

    Squirrel, who was less effective today than last week, had nearly scored a cracking goal himself earlier in proceedings but his effort came back off the post just moments before Hibs opened the scoring. Super was more Standard John McGinn today but he was hit several times in the opening period of the game with some meaty challenges going in from some of these players who certainly didn't need an all day breakfast.

    Shot after shot came, chance after chance. The keeper made a decent stop from Simon with his feet before a Sir DG header went over the bar. Another effort from Dylan went wide.
