I agree with the rather spritely 1875 I witnessed dancing out of Ibrox yesterday evening, old twinkletoes nearly doing the lambada with fieryjack is a sight to behold :yeah:

Overall a decent performance with a magnificent result.Allan/Malonga/Cummings could have kept the ball a wee bit better resulting in less pressure on the back 5/6, but lets not be churlish, how many times can we be relatively poor at Orcvile and get a result?

I couldn't properly sleep last night. Been awake on and off as the brain just won't switch off. Up with the birds this morning as it ain't happening. Might just get the coffee on and watch the recording of the game I have sitting on Sky+...

FWIW, 1875's account is far closer to my own take than MD's. I have to say, MD, that I think the tone of your post is somewhat surprising - we've beaten them three times on the bounce, maybe done it less convincingly last night, but nonetheless three times on the bounce. Do you know how often that has happened in most of our lifetimes? I can't get my head round anyone - and I mean anyone - having a go (for example) in a back handed manner at the likes of Oxley last night. He DID have one of his better games. Leave it at that. It's not the time nor the place to be having a wee back handed dig at the bloke. And I say this as someone who has found his inconsistency a right royal pain in the erky this season. Something that doesn't happen very often happened last night. Let us enjoy it. Seriously.

The 3-5-2 was, for much of the game a 5-3-2. I don't think we fully expected them to be SO in our faces from the off. They also clearly targeted Scottie A and he didn't appreciate. I think it affected his game but then these things WILL happen from time to time. He will learn and move on. He's done his bit this season. It was industrial football trying to stop the football team playing and that in itself says so much. Lewis and David were pushed back a fair bit and the middle three were too narrow. That sometimes meant we were giving away possession too readily in the middle of the park but Robbo and Dylan worked their arses off. The front two were playing too far apart from the midfield. With that gap, came a lack of service.

Fraser Famous Fyvie coming on was a good sub - Stubbsy has managed that a little more often of late now that he has a stronger bench at his disposal. The second goal was an absolute screamer. Great build up play and that wee fella just goes from strength to strength. Never mind all yer man crushes on Scottie A...Lewis is one deserving all our love this weekend - he even played on with a right sair yin at the end. He's Mr Hibs :050:

For me Fontaine, Lewis, Gray, Robbo and Oxley were more than up to the challenge of last night. I reckon before the goal it was probably Fontaine or Robbo for me as MotM but the goal took wee Lew into the stratosphere. I think I will need to get the Sky+ on the now...

Well done Stubbsy. Well done our team. We all have learned to love you again. Happy Valentine's Day :smug:
To much use of the word bounce on the bounce.

Joking apart, spot-on post again and well thought out.

FWIW, i was also up at 8am to watch the re-run. Have to say we were slightly better on the telly.:banana:

I would take coming out of that place with 3 points no matter how it's achieved anytime. This is the worst team ever to wear blue and play at Ibrox but if we can play below our best and end up winning quite comfortably all is good in my book. I think most of them have realised how shite they are and were very subdued.

Good report again. I thought Alan might have changed formation a little as in the last game at Ibrox they seemed to have worked us out a bit in the 2nd half.

As for the steward, if more than you heard him Mark then I seriously suggest you all report him to Glasgow's finest. Even if they don't charge him it wont go well for him

I watched the game stream last night and one thing that struck me ,the difference from the last couple of seasons , is it looked very much like a team , they all covered each other ,they all seemed to know what each other was up to , the difference is spectacular and exciting to watch , takes me back to our 5-1 win over Killie at Hampdung , A Team that gets you sitting on the edge of your seat , something we have not had since these brilliant days more than a few seasons ago,Thank you AS and all the backroom staff for making Hibernian an exciting challenging professional football team again.

just my thoughts G.G.T.T.H.

Davy, I asked the senior steward and he said it is unlikely anything would happen. I wisnae grassing, not my way, more if one of your stewards used the term fenian what would happen? The fact said steward would have went to his pish stained bed, in his fetid wee flat, gutted his rancid team were beaten again is enough for me.

I think your summary complements mine J. I agree about Hibs fans dissing the club, even when we do things right, being almost unfathonable?

I also believe what people see on the telly, with all its re-runs and angles is a different game from the one people at the games see.

The five you mention as being Hibs best players last night, are the same five for me, plus McGeogh for parts of the game.

On Lewis, my man crush on Lewis is gaining momentum week by week, he really is Mr Hibs.

I wonder where we'd be without Stubbs using Gray & Stevenson in the manner he has.
The two wing-backs have been a revelation going forward and Stevenson gets better and better.

Would it be fair to say they are consistently our best players, at least throughout the game and week to week?

I watched the game on telly. 1875's summary is superb, crisply accurate, especially for someone at the game with comparatively restricted viewing and lacking the benefits of multiple replays etc. Put it this way he did a hella lot better than the commentary team.

A few thoughts on the 352/532.

I got the impression that both Huns and Hibs thought that Hibs intended to play 352. It didn't work out that way and events really took control of how Hibs set up rather than tactics. Initially Huns went long with players running off into the holes at RB/LB as you would expect. Hanlon lost some key challenges in the air, one of them leading to the clearance off the line. However, after about 15/20 mins Hanlon started to man up against Boyd and rattled the fat Hun a good few times -- I tell you it was great for this old Hibby to see.

However, after Hibs took the lead they clearly reverted to 532 and this led to some major problems. Ball retention was poor, the team started sitting either side of 18 yard box and big gaps right and left allowed the Huns to get crosses in without really having to work for them. If Hibs were going to concede a goal last night it would be from a cross. Fortunately, the two best opportunities fell to Boyd who fluffed them, evidently still dizzy after getting the Hanlon treatment. :077:

I thought Hibs defended manfully, and got the breaks when they mattered. I suppose I'm being greedy but I would love to have seen them win the game with a bit more control.

However, after the match both Robertson and Stevenson made it plain that they were not entirely happy with the performance. Hibs going to Ibrox winning 2 scud and still finding fault! Phooock me sideways! Happy days!

(One last word, the Ally give a wave song is brilliant. Witty, funny, contemporary and edgy. Every thing a fitba chant should be. I will say no more.)

You may have seen but i suggested the very same to one of my Hibby mates on Facebook this morning after he suggested that Malonga done nothing in the game from watching it on the telly.

I thought Stubbs made the correct call before and throughout the game.
If we didn't go back to the 5-3-2, like we did last time at Ibrox, I think we would've conceded several goals.

I also disagree about the defence, I thought they all made far too many mistakes. However, unlike with previous seasons, we kept our composure and often had a player to cover. With the 3 centre-backs, there was always an extra man for when Hanlon was beaten to the ball, Watson was nowhere near the ball or Fontaine made an error. They played well as a unit, if not individually.
Far too many mistakes? What were these? They must have only been visible on the telly as I can't remember much, if any, in the way of mistakes from any of the back 3.

Watching on TV is only good at judging how good a player is on (or near) the ball. It's no coincidence nearly every player signed on the back of videos is pish. A striker should obviously be judged on goal rate above all else but there's a reason why a boy like Emile Heskey commanded millions of pounds in transfer fees and gained so many England caps despite everyone condemning him as a donkey.

Obviously you can't beat TV for the was it/wasn't it decisions but it's that's sense of injustice where you are convinced of what you saw that makes going to the game so frustratingly enjoyable.

Agreed. I'd like it to be towards the end of his new contract he will be signing soon. The guy is a huge asset to our club.
