Reality Check.

The fact is this isn't a normal season. Every team outwith huns and maybe Livi latterly has underperformed. Plenty of us supporters are struggling with lockdown, players are human too. To be honest I couldn't tell you the last time I saw a good game of fitba in any league.

Can't say I'm enjoying what I'm watching or particularly see strong signs of improvement but as is often said football is a results business. IF we get third that'll be job done from a results perspective. Sign a player or two who can actually score goals in the summer and I think we'll have a really strong squad. If we still don't have clear signs of progress by September / October then I'll start worrying. For the time being my knickers will remain dry.

A Hibernian Nursery Rhyme

Oh the Grand Old Team to play for
It had ten thousand fans
It raised them up to have great dreams
Then it smashed them down again
And when they were good they were braw
And when they were bad they were shite
And when they were neither good nor bad
Wait that never happened

We can’t rely on Aberdeen to continue to be shite BUT they’re doing a fantastic job. Fans raging and I read they’ve not scored from open play for over 10 hours.

We simply have to pick up a win in at least one of the next two games and we’re then in seriously good shape with 5 games left.

It’s too late now to hope for any decent free flowing fitba. Just battle like fuk and scrape a result or two by whatever means. If Murphy, Boyle or Nisbet want to show a flash or two of class then all the better. Allan won’t be getting the chance it seems for even a 15 min cameo to rescue a point 😢

Time we all acknowledged Hibs are just not very good. If Aberdeen hadnt dropped 28 points since New Year they'd be miles ahead of the Hibees. Yes, I get the irony if Hibs hadn't dropped so many but what ever way you dress it up Aberdeen and Celtic have been abysmal and way below their best.

Despite this there seems to be a large element of our support who thinks we should celebrate if we finish third but my God we flatter to deceive.

Years ago Alex Miller told the fans "if we stay at ER we will have to sell our best young players for years to come". The fans didn't want to move so we had to use the funds raised by selling to rebuild the ground and ultimately adding a training centre. A fact ironically held against Rod Petrie despite Alex' warning us all. Fickle fans eh 🙄

Decades later we have everything in place but we are still floundering around struggling to beat teams the size of St J, County and Livi. That's inexcusable given the investment in the clubs infrastructure.

It's simply beggers belief there are fans who still shrug their shoulders after results like today and don't question why we are not showing the benifit of all that investment. We must have more ancillary staff than St Johnstone have players in their squad! 🤨

As a footnote: did you watch last night's "view from the terrace"? It had a piece on Hamiltons win against Hibs in the 2014 play-off final. Full of their fans recollection of the day. The tears, the joy....

One quote was missing and it came on the day from their manager Alex Neil. While being interviewed he was obviously elated. He lifted his arm and gestured round the stands saying "Hibs have all this!"

He was right. Yet we were relegated and a club with 2000 fans, a plastic pitch and two stands, took our place.

There are no excuses now. No excuses whatsoever and I include covid given all the clubs are in the same predicament.
Great post m8.

Stadium announcer Barrie Wilkins says it best .


Hibs. Our club, our team, the people, the sacrifice the passion the history. It’s what makes us who we are, it makes our club what it is is, if you don’t get it now you never will. It’s not about anyone else. It’s about Hibs. Your hibs. Or you’re not.

There is the headline
Journos dont write headlines, which in any case are just bait and often bear no resemblance to content.
Any chance of reading the article?
I‘m disappointed if he made up lies about Hibs fans.
He‘s a massive Hibs fan and was on the testimonial committee of Lewis and Paul.

Thay may bring him even more criticism.

The headline is actually bang on. It’s the 2nd and 3rd sub-headings that suck. Although perhaps the article was detailed how the Hibs fans ran on the pitch in ‘an understandable outpouring of joy’ while Hun yobs had spoiled things by coming on looking for a fight, and that the 3 huns that had to ‘see the doc’ were seeking treatment fo bruised egos?

I haven’t read a daily record article for about 30 years
