Just back and we stopped our losing run....

Dinnae get me wrong a week ago a draw at Celtc would have been welcome but we could have had more tonight, but our manager's conservative approach and weird subsititions meant only a brilliant Kevin Nisbet goal saved us our blushes. I wont add to the covid debate, Celtc and the League should be ashamed of themselves, dead simple. I will say it and I am sure a few will disagree but any manager that starts that useless turd Wright has to be questioned, he brings nothing, and is simply not good enough to play for Hibs, it makes Allan O'Brien look decent. Cap it with the introduction of Stephen McGinn who immediately gave away a daft free kick and subsequent goal, up your game Jack, this isnae Hearts. St Mirren, Alloa or the Mackems you work for.

Celtc still had a good team out, given they had a few missing, if they had named that team outwith Covid, few would have raised their head at, given 'Lenny' and his teams are a mess a lot of the time. Hibs, well we started well, quickly faded and looked beat when they scored. I thought Mallan showed desire when he came on and brought us back into the game, something he has done a lot recently. Best for Hibs were the defence, our new keeper Macey, Gogic, Murphy and Newell as ever. Best for Celtc was Turnbull and Soro but they were there for the beating.

Before I talk about the team, can I mention a living legend for a moment. Our very own Lewis Stevenson who wracked up his 500th game in a HIbernian jersey. A man who has won both the League and Scottish Cup in a HIbs shirt. Thank you Lewis, you are a fine Hibernian, I am proud of you, proud for you. 💚

Celtc are poor, we should be chasing second. If the chance arises I would look for a loan of Soro? I hear his three brothers all play, get them all in, they were born Hibs players Soro....Soro.....Soro......Sorooooooooo!

The Team

Macey, decent first game, will give Rocky a challenge

Paul McGinn, I thought he was very good, back to how he normally is.

Porto strolled it, one mistake all game.

Paul Hanlon played like the good Paul tonight, I like that.

Josh Doig was our best player first half, went off with a tight hammy according to King Louie in the post match interview.

Alex Gogic had a very good game I felt.

Joe played well until he was hurt, he normally does.

Melker Hallberg was decent at corners but I felt he might have given us more?

Drey Wright.

Jamie Murphy was in and out the first half, excellent second.

Nissie reported missing much of the game, but what a goal, I am delighted for the laddie, I like him.

The Subs

Lewis for Josh at half time, Josh had a hammy issue so fair enough. Lewis done well.

Doidge for Wright was 52 minutes too late for me all Doidge didnae offer much more to be honest.

Mallan replaced Newell around 70 minutes and whilst Joe played well, I felt Mallan improved Hibs immensly, he wanted it.

McGinn for Hallberg, well we lost a goal due to that change so it never really worked for me even though Hallberg wisnae great he did cover every inch of grass when on.

The Boss

Just listened to his sky interview and he is right in saying we were not at our best but deserved a point. He described us as ragged and felt we were more disciplined and stopped the bleeding ( the new phrase). I find his teams boring and conservative, I really wish he wasn't and our team were more attractive. He does wear a face mask well, never seen it as a sartorial addition, his Hibs face mask looked good on him!

The Ref

Was the ref on that day in May. I will let him off.

Celtc

They are a shambles, from Lawell, through Lennon to Celtc TV, they are rotten to the core. That is good, pity its the filthy Huns that benefit not Hibs.

Man of the Match

It had been Josh Doig until he went off, however Jamie Murphy was excellent and gets my man of the match.

Next up is Killie at home. I dread home games.

Hibernian Forever!

A message to you, radge
I guess taking a point when you are a goal down with less than 10 minutes to go is no bad thing.
I thought we stood off them all night, but I don't think we have the 'get in about them' type of players.
A dull game all round.

Dull game, two good goals.

Thought Newall was good again, and the big man made a difference up front when he came on.

Strange to talk about the negativity of Hibs play (not just you but everyone on the other thread) but still cant remember getting as many corners at Parkhead before (not to say that we havent had!) so maybe its the style of play as opposed to not getting forward enough ... dunno... a point there is good though, although we shouldnt have played the game.

PS - We usually lose on my birthday - one win against Dundee Utd in the mid 70s - in my lifetime - so this is point more than I expected today.

PPS - That ref can do what ever the fuck he wants as far as Im concerned for the rest of his career!

Also yes, should commend LS for 500 appearances - pretty fucking fantastic, and winning both cups with us - remember that young guy who was amazing against Killie!

Just seems like yesterday he was making his debut ... will there ever be another 500 game player for us, PH would have to play every game for a few years, so cant see him doing it. (edited this as I took a punt at the number but realised I havent a clue!)

The manager does deserve a lot of credit for keeping players focussed for tonight and concentration levels were excellent but it gets a bit weary saying it but Jack Ross just can't read the ebbs and flows of a game.

Last 10 minutes Celtc were going to push with everything and McGinn was never going to be up to speed as he is a yard slow at the best of times.

Halberg was doing fine and there wasn't anything broken to fix so what does the manager do.....🤔

Having said that though there were lots of fine individual performances especially the goalie Macey who together with Porto and Hanlon formed a strong partnership, admittedly Celtc were toothless but fairs fair and that performance would do Hanlons confidence the world of good.✅.

The solid defence was very much helped by the performance of Gogic who snarled and hassled and looked like he has regained that half yard.✅

Same with Murphy who is getting sharper with more games under his belt✅

Its a bit disapointing Hibs didn't go toe to toe as Celtc were there for the taking with 'Flappy' in goals and Duff Shaney lumbering around but it was a well won and deserved point in the end and quite a lot of positives to take from the game.

Saturdays secret will be trying to play a home game without conceding as gaps seem to appear as soon as the game gets stretched as it naturally does for the home team.

However we line up there is one change that now has to be made and even the manager must see it.🤞🏻

I agree with almost all you say, but I don't think Halberg has it, to be honest. His passing is wayward to say the least. But I also thought Gogic was very good as he played the kind of game that we thought he was brought in to play.

Caught the last half hour on the radio goin tae ma work. Bonner and co were sayin Hibs appeared tae have set out for the draw but once Celtc scored we opened u a bit and got the equaliser. A point at darkheid isnae tae be sniffed at and it’s stopped the losing run so not a bad night.
NEXT!!!!

Surely the Celtic goal should have been disallowed? Fabulous free kick, that I don’t think was a foul but then Duffy stood in the middle of the wall?

Think its a bit of a stretch to say Celtic were there for the taking last night.
A point at parkhead under any circumstances is a good point. Any damage to our aspirations of 3rd place happen against the Ross County's and Livingstones of this world.
Nice to see Nissy score though, I'll happily settle for our main striker offering nowt much else than scoring goals.

Surely a team put together at the last minute is their for the taking no? Granted they still had decent players but not used to playing together.

I just wish we’d have pressed Duffy more, he’s a bomb scare.

I watched the game and felt they were there for the taking, I didn't assume that pre match. Did you watch the match, did you not think the same?
