    I wouldn't. He's had the odd dodgy game but he always responds the right way. Wouldn't put it past him to play well for the next few games. He can be exceptional but these occasional blips are the reason we are fortunate enough to have him.

    Like Efe.

    Laddie got his bet up Saturday, would have got it up again tonight.
    That’s how he is with us I suppose, till think he’s the best we’ve had for a few years, Conrad apart.

    2 Big mistakes in his last two games, I’m a Rocky fan but i feel Bell should keep his place if fit on Saturday.

    Getting himself sent off was a big mistake but it happens. Tonight was a handling error. They're an occupational hazard.

    We've lost 6 times this season. That's in part because he has generally been the best keeper for ages and exceptional st times. Still don't think we should be worrying too much about it yet.

    Agree. I thought the ball bounced awkwardly just in front of him and he wasn't able to correct himself to gather it. That said, it wasn't pretty and shouldn't have happened. I thought the ironic cheering when he caught the ball afterwards was uncalled-for - we shouldn't be going after our own players like that.

    If he was a 'top-class keeper' he wouldn't be at ER. And I've seen a fair number of 'top-class keepers in the English Premiership and Championship make mistakes as bad if not worse this season.

    I don't imagine Neil will fail to do something about this over the next couple of days.

    I'm fairly certain as that cheer went up he looked towards the West stand and was either smiling or laughing.

    Any goalkeeper mistake is going to hurt an old wound with Hibs fans.

    He's saved us more points than he has lost this season. Not many Hibs goalkeepers can say that in my lifetime watching the Cabbage, I can maybe count on one hand how many.

    He held his hand up for the mistake (appreciated that) - much like Efe does. As long as the same type of error (coming straight onto a cross ball, should be taking that at an angle) doesn't repeat itself any time soon or ever then we move on?

    Can see people's point in playing Bell to sharpen Marciano up but let's remember Cammy isnae the messiah either (plenty of high profile mistakes at Rangers and Dundee United).

    he definitely wasn't smiling or laughing when he looked over to the West. P'issed him right off.

    Lennon made a fair point about him being rusty, missing the last game and the international break.
