This seasons points target

I think we would have (referee allowing) had a decent chance of taking 4 or 6 points if we'd got them early doors, and I still think we will do the The Huns but the Smellies are getting their act together, Griffiths is scoring freely again and the Gunts are always difficult at the PBS.

Here's hoping though.



To be honest, I'm NEVER confident at Swinecastle - even at the 0-7 game, before we scored I thought we may get beaten, although I was feeling a bit cheerier by half time.
Unless my memory is letting me down, we could have been at least one down before the goals started raining in.

I think our visit across the city later this month is pretty huge. They've obviously improved and last season we didn't impress on three visits. We got suckered into their game and didn't play ours. I hope we've got a fully fit Marciano, Gray, Ambrose, Hanlon, McGregor, Porteous, Stevenson, Milligan, Bartlay & Kamberi to choose from. All proper men who will relish it.

I've calmed down about our goalie now - he was truly awful at the start of his Hibs career but he's won me over by commanding his box and pulling off a few truly worldy saves. I'd be happy with him OR Rocky now.
The rest will indeed be valuable - and not playing Marv last time was an error - although he may not be as crucial this time around with Spike playing.

There was an interesting table of points floating around Twitter the other week and it was both Hibs and Kilmarnock who have collected most points in the league since the turn of the year. I know it's going over two seasons but Livi aside we have started very strongly. Like every Hibby I just hope it'll continue on and with more games we'll hopefully put games to bed early doors.

We have to win more away games than we did last season...far too many draws on the road. We also cannot afford home defeats to the likes of Hamilton and St Johnstone. Easter Road has to be our fortress next season with teams bricking it when due to play there.
I think Hamilton will be bricking it big style next time!

Updated after Saturday, and we lose a point against last season. Still 6 points up overall going into the last game of the first 11 games against Hearts (and without having played Rangers at home - which is a free hit after losing the corresponding fixture last season.

I’ll update this tonight and I still think we’re ahead of last season but we’ve not taken advantage of some free hits.

It’s a diabolical run of fixtures though - parkhead, tynecastle and Pittodrie in quick succession.

So we’re 8th, which must be lower than last season given we were never out of the top 6. But we’re only 8 points off the top, which I think we’d have been further off at this point last season. Strange old lesgue this year.

I don't ever get too bothered about league positions at this stage of the season. If we were 8th come April/May I would be worried but that won't happen. I still think we will be challenging for third place along with Hearts come the end of the season.

It is still far too early in the season to be overly concerned about league positions. We’ve a number of tough games before the winter break, and can’t fall allow ourselves to fall too far behind those above us, or any chance of a top 4 finish will be slim.

As was the case last season, the transfer business done in January will have a significant impact on our season as a whole.

Hibs, along with The Sheep & St. Johnstone, seem to be very streaky in their form - as in it’s either a good run or a poor run, no inbetween. Rangers are very inconsistent. Hearts & Kilmarnock appear to be more consistent than the rest so far.

I’m not factoring in Smellies... as, despite a slow start, they will pull away at the top.

Even if our points tally is around the same or slightly better than last year, we're still 8th in the league. 8 behind Hearts, 6 behind Kilmarnock, 5 behind St Johnstone and a point behind Livingston. Behind St Johnstone and Livingston after 12 games???? That can't be seen as reasonable.

We have decent individual players (midfield is a bit dodgy though), but it's worrying that our only wins have been against the bottom four drivel and one against Kilmarnock.

This winning mentality that Lennon installed into us the previous two years, it needs brought back after the international break.

When we were second it was a false position. We are not that good the same way as being 8th is false because we are better than that. In reality this season we are a mid table 5th or 6th place team. Our midfield is just too week at the moment to sustain any sort of challenge and having one good striker on the books is a huge hinderance as well. In January it’s imperative we bolster the midfield with somebody who won’t get blown over by a gust of wind and we need a partner for Kamberri. You can’t expect him to carry McClaren on his back all season.

3 points to the good after today - with a free hit on Wednesday


I'll post up a full list, but if our aim is to match or better last seasons points tally of 67 then this is what we have to match game by game from last seasons corresponding fixtures. There's definitely a bit potential from our opening games.
