Weeping and wailing has been the theme of the week, Hibs fans v Hibs Fans, board apologists v conspiracy theorists, the press v the silence of the board, journalists predicting a 'cup shock', Persil v the Bed Sheets, Leeann loves Oli, George and Eddie are such a laugh, total turmoil, you name it. Ma fucking heed is nipping with it all.

Hibs come out ,take one look at Raith, give them a slap and knock them out, job done. Forza can enjoy his work on Monday. McGlynn resplendent in tight tracky bottoms and what looked like a pair of slip on's clearly skipped the bit about David Gray going forward in his analysis, ten minutes in we had had at least six runs from the captain, we were in control, if and when we scored, we were beating them.
Before I talk about our team, I will say that Raith came to take us on, they and their 1600 or so fans gave it a go. They looked like a lower end premiership team and played far better than some of their higher league peers. Pity Raith get 1600 at home too eh? Imagine if their fans didnae just turn up in the cup, although the opposite can be said about the Hibs support, just over 7000 Hibs fans???? Was that the board/ Leeann/ Neil & Garry's/ Auntie Mary's fault too? (delete as appropriate).

Whilst we were at no point magnificent, we professionally dispatched a decent, hard working team. Football broke out in patches, we saw some decent stuff from McNulty and Flo, Oli came on and did his bit as did Omeonga, Spike, Lewis and Sir Dave did what we want them to do, Mallan had a better game than recently and three different players scored. Hibs won, I am delighted. I am sure others will disagree?

Before I comment on the individual performances, some of the gossip doing the rounds today that you may not hear? Factual one is that Marc McNulty's wee one has been no well and in Sick Kids this week. Keep that in mind when you review his very decent performance after watching the game on the radio. Other tales relayed included us being taken by surprise who we announce as our new manager. I did ask if that meant I would pee the sheets in fear, it was suggested not. Lets see. Neil Lennon was the reason Ryan Porteous played with an injury ( very week medical people we have if they cannae speak up?). The stoatir was that Neil was three and your out for raising his hands to George Craig. Those of you that have been in George's company will know you might want to raise your hands in his company, but it would be to but your hand over his mooth as he is an awfy blether. The only one I would consider a fact is Marc's wee one being no well. The good news is the wee one is getting better. Get well soon with lost of love from the Hibs fans.

Eddy Grant will be delighted their stint is over, new man on Monday I am hearing?

The Team

Rocky, no really tested. Distribution is awful, he tried to use Spike as an Efe out ball, it doesn't work. Lost a goal and does not command his box.

Sir David Gray, Captain of Hibernian on the day he scored the winning goal in the 92nd minute at Hampden v the Huns had a good game, I enjoyed his marauding runs and Captains attitude. Great challenge on young Callum Crane when Raith tried to push their way back in the gang. Hibernian are a better team when David plays. The only part of Leeann's Pravda message I really agreed with during the week was giving Captain Dave a job for life at out club.

Daz had a no nonsense game, although I am not sure if it was him or Paul who lost their No. 5 for the Raith goal?

Paul was poor again, what the hell has happened to one of the best footballers at the club? Haas he been forced back too soon?

Lewis strolled though the game.

I thought Milligan had a smashing game, good balls, broke up play and looked decent. He tired after 70 minutes and was replaced by Whiits after 80.

Mallan had a decent game for me, playing further forward suits him and he tried to push us on. Might have scored with a couple of decent shots.

I think Slivka flatters to deceive. Scored a decent goal after an excellent touch from McNulty, looks the part going forward with the odd good ball but hides for large parts of the game and is a lightweight who wouldnae tackle a fish supper.

Horgan scored a decent goal, otherwise is a waste of a jersey. Blows out his arse before half time, was delighted to see him go after 60 minutes.

Flo never stopped trying and really did deserve a goal for his efforts. I like the laddie (he is just a laddie) and feel he is trying too hard. The arseholes who get on his back need to piss off to Tynecastle. I can see a decent pairing between him and Marc Mac.

Marc McNulty had a very good game, he has a lovely touch, makes intelligent moves and scored a very well taken goal. Given his personal circumstances and lack of games, I expect Marc will be part of this seasons revival. I like him, he was playing on the front line.

The Subs

Omeonga replaced the unfit and half arsed Horgan and showed he has something, very decent workrate, good close skill and a bit of confidence. Lose the pineapple on the napper pal.

Whitts came on for Spike with 10 to go. Only Eddy Grant knows why. I would have played Bagirimana last 10.

Oli came on for Marc Mac with 5 to go and created a half chance.

Raith

Well done both the team and fans. I have seen much, much worse. I hope you get back up to the Championship. Elgin's drunk 500 made more noise though.

Referee

The Hun Bastard had a quiet game. Still a Hun bastard though.

The Management Team

Eddy Grant picked a team to win, we did. I thought the choice of Whitty over Bagirimana was poor, otherwise they sent a team out to win. We did so comfortably. Thanks guys, you give me hope ya bammers.

Man of the Match

Easy, Marc McNulty. Only Milligan came close for me.

So, we won, we are in the quarter finals, Thistle or United in the next round at Easter Road for me please?

Being greedy, can I also ask that we now start looking forward, I am not a board apologist, I am a Hibs fan, home and away, like you all, Hibernian are our club, that is for life. Time to get behind our club, the new manager, the players, dare I say it the board. I heard both friends and family say that they were not renewing their season tickets next season. At least they turned up today and told me that. Club, over to you on that one, you won them back, you are losing them, better work out how you win them back again. Hard work needed their, people will vote with their hard cash and feet, its looking ominous on that one.

See you all behind the goal, which I learned today is actually a saying that goes back to the auld days when Hibs fans would say it in reference to the Eastern Cemetery behind the Famous Five Stand where many Hibernians are buried including Dan McMichael, one of our greatest founding fathers. I might book a spot there in my will?

Hibernian Forever!

Almost spot on but I thought Slivka was good but faded.We faded with 15 to go though which is a worry,but I'm glad we are through and it shuts up the moaning minnies for at least a week.

as far away fi The Saville Dome as possible
Thanks Mark.
Agree with most of it, except I thought Horgan looked our most productive player , he does lose his way through the game , but his two footed ness is a huge plus.
Slivka , took his goal well and played a fantastic through ball for McNulty who looked assured as he tucked it away.
Milligan and Horgan both looked to have taken bad injuries , which we really can't afford much more players on the sideline .
The whole atmosphere around the club is flat just now, we desperately need a lift, which a new manager and cup,run might just be the ticket.
I thought we might slip up today, the first goal was huge, Partick at home will do me next round .

Agree, apart from Horgan. I thought he worked really hard.

Great report I didn't think Horgan was too bad until he faded by half time. I thought McNulty was ok but no more. Slivka is a skilful player, but lacks physicality for me. We can only hope Hanlon and Daz too are on a journey back to match fitness.

Horgan was responsible for a goal and two assists. He was the one most likely to open them up because he was the only one being truly direct.

We miss Efe bringing the ball out from defence. He's not coming back but unless we find someone else who has that ability to bring the ball forward then we're going to continue to struggle to turn defence into attack. That one is for the new boss.

Good input there, thanks for that.



I didn't, he drifts in and out when it suits him.
In your opinion . We all thought he was our MOM
. Fast ,skillful, scores goals , set Horgan up for his goal , was in an intelligent position forward midfield to take a great touch back from McNulty to crack in the second and is an intelligent player who very rarely picks cheap wasteful passes as an option .
Why ? Because he’s got the skill to manoeuvre himself and beat players to give himself better options .

That is much better than "bollocks". I don't agree, but happy to read an alternative opinion on a Hibs player. Will you be at the Hamilton game next week to offer a further opinion?

Horgan was great as was Milligan a real shame they picked up injuries, Flo tries and tries he just needs that little break to go his way, those who turned up today good on you, too many couldn’t be arsed getting to a Scottish Cup game which is pretty embarrassing as it’s something we should seriously be backing our players to win it.
