How does it go so wrong so quickly?

We have some decent players but there is no steel in the team collectively. Even the sending offs where tame, I could understand if both players were busting a gut to get us back into the game but they were just too casual and lacked urgency or determination. Young Doig is not a defender and Porteous suffers from continual lapses in concentration.

The goal we lost was so typical of Hibs, powderpuff defending as we let yet another ball come into our box and defenders ball watch. We ain’t creating a lot of chances either which is just as worrying.

In midfield we try to look tidy but are quickly overrun by the opposition. Both our central midfielders never get in the box and don’t shoot from outside either.
Nisbet is too hot or cold, more cold of late and Boyle is similar.

I am really warming to young Campbell but he was dragged down tonight by the current incompetent malaise that surrounds him.

I take no pleasure in any of the above or adding that Jack has to go. I think he might get another couple of games and if he does, I just pray he and the players can sort this mess out and soon.

Like most of us, I am scunnered with Hibs just now.

Sounded on the radio that Omeonga had more fight in him than the whole team.

Much more energy and a want to go win the ball.
So yeah, pretty much.

Tactics are irrelevant if players don’t do the basics. Doesn’t matter what the formation or system or style of play is meant to be, if the players don’t out run and out fight their opposite number they’ll get nothing from a game.
Tactics matter when you can’t create anything, are you honestly telling me the players don’t want to win matches?

I’m sure they want to win, but they aren’t putting the hard work and commitment in to achieve it. You can’t create anything without wanting the ball more than your opponent, you can’t score without wanting to get to the ball ahead of your opponent, you can’t defend if your opponent wants the ball more than you. That’s the basics of football, that’s what players and a team have to get right if they’re going to successfully implement any tactic.

Meant tae delete that but fuck it, Hibs are no makin an effort so why the fuck should I?
Decent point.

About the only Hibs man that made an effort tonight was the Just Back guy.

The other Hibs men were Just Rank.

I was there tonight with my two laddies, who (once again, and with reasonable cause) blamed me for bringing them up Hibs.

I’m thinking of reporting myself to Social Services, but probably one of you fuckers has already done that.

Where’s Pistol when you need someone to make you feel good about yourself?

Plain old Hard work doesn’t win games on its own anymore, hence why these coaches who refuse to adapt struggle.

Not on its own, so tactics are a fraction.
But tactics won't carry you through a game when you're not busting a gut to win.

Hibs do not work hard enough.

Funnily enough my then 35 year auld laddie forgave me on 21/5/2016 for bringing him up Hibs. I’ll probs be getting pelters again from him this morning mind.

I looked at the line-up last night and apart from cadden being injured thought , here we go again , same old same old , so wasn’t reallly surprised with the result .
There are three players it seems JR refuses to drop
1 Matt ( canny command my box ) Macey
2 Paul ( canny stop crosses ) Mcginn
3 Joe ( canny create hee-haw ) Newell
I cant remember ( apart from injuries or suspensions mibby ) any of the three being dropped or subbed .
Ross is set in his ways and refuses to change and ultimately it’ll be his downfall IMO 🤷‍♂️
