    Agree with your first sentence but we are in a league of 10 average teams with a few years without Sevco & Edinburgh clubs out of the league so we may have done a lot better with a decent manager.

    I don't think we will ever know the inner workings as the chairman says one thing and the manager says another. We have had gaps in the squad for long periods of time ever since Chris Miller was frozen out. 
    Defence, central midfield and striker have all needed attention over the last few seasons. The fact there was never a suitable person filling it can't all be down to the budget that Brown sets.

    Tommy always points out the positives. It's a wonder he didn't say we dominated.

    It seems to me that anyone who gets the ball into our box is very likely to score. Hearts and Hamilton just didn’t get the ball into the box.
    Tommy said we started brightly - we conceded in the second minute! So, we were bright for all of 120 seconds.

    There was a time when I was touting Kerr & Clark for a Scotland place. At the moment I think they would both benefit from a few weeks in the stand. Their confidence is shot. A goalie should command his area & marshal  his defence.

    Just watched the start of the game on saints tv and I cannot understand why we persist with Jason Kerr. He lost us the game in the second minute with that slip that surely any other CH in the league would have dealt with. Hibs got a lift and never looked back. Clark also needs dropped as he keeps pushing shots out not to the side where there is a chance it would be safer.
    If the big Estonian or Booth cannot get in our defence at the moment they never will and if not why waste money signing them.

    2 up front for 60 minutes you say yesterday?   was that at 2 or 3 down?!   To even remotely have the stance that 2 up front doesnt work because it didnt work when we are 2 or 3 down is mind boggling.    Clearly 451 is the root cause of the defeat, the extra man in the middle for us didn't give Hibs any problem.
    Play to your strengths, not your weakness, our weakness is defence so let's invite the opposition on, as every time we go forward we lose the ball easily as one man up top has no support. 
    Go all out attack v Aberdeen, dont give them a chance to settle by knocking the ball about the back and picking passes at ease, dictating the play.  We dont tackle.    High press, and they'll be the team adapting formation not us man marking their team.

    Oddly, stumbled across Hibs fans pre match comments, '2 up front please' '2 forwards starting' 'I'm going, best pies in the league' 'trust May to pick 2 forwards'  quite a few similar thoughts.
    Their front 2 bossed our defence.  Guess they've been playing 1 up front most of the season.  
    Post match Hibs players saying 'we were all out attack today'
    Guess Hecky, sacked, strangled their style and became too scared to play attacking football.. 
    Oddly, I can relate to the Hibs supporters, our pies are braw.   Not many teams come to McD and thrash us.. guess attacking football and the desire and fight to win actually gets results.

    Wright is clueless every week .His sub's are usually too late & baffling.
    We would not have lost those first 2 goals if Ando was there.
    Kerr has lost it completely. May be the captaincy too much for him

    60 minutes of dug shite, I'm not wasting my time watching shit poor defending.  2nd game in 30 years that I have walked out early, where do I go to get a refund for todays ticket, players should have their wages docked. Abysmal.
    Pop star wannabes.   4 horrendous goals to concede, Christmas is next month for gifts. 
    TW aint going no where  he was never offered jobs when successful, doubt he'll get offers just now on last 12-18 months of anti football.
    Well done TW for playing May alone and isolated, so entertaining!!

    This is why the break after Christmas is a waste of time. The weather in early January is no worse and likely better than early February and the past few years we have been lucky.  We all know that we could have two weeks off with the break in perfect weather and when we come back get hit with another 'beast from the east' and be off for another two weeks. 
    The people running our game are incompetent.

    I think the latter is more likely but if we play to our strengths with same lineup ,same formation,same tactics & same determination we should get the points.
    Hibs score a few but they also lose a few so play to our strengths not theirs.

    this stop-start season is infuriating for us fans and must be so for the players, too. No game last week, now a game against Hibs and then yet another sodding international break. I'm sick of them. The last two seasons have been absolutely ruined by the number of blank weekends.

    As much as I rate him out wide, I think Kennedy is even better through the middle.  It suits his all action style to be involved more, and he can take players on on either side through the middle.  He also is fairly strong at holding the ball up, as well as spinning centre backs.
    Wright and Wotherspoon have done okay the past couple of games, but as much for their defensive work as their attacking play. Spoony was obviously excellent going forward v Accies, but I thought he was poor in possession against Hearts. However, he did put a good shift in and played his part in a battling victory.  Wright was steady in both games, again not creating a lot, but playing his part at both ends of the park.
    I'd say both MOH and Swanson are generally bigger attacking threats than both Spoony and Wright, but neither are as good at the defensive end. That's why Spoony and Wright have been picked when we've been struggling and conceding goals; too make us more solid and harder to beat.  And it's worked the past couple of games.
    But I'm struggling to see how Spoony or Wright made more of an attacking impact against Hearts than Kennedy.

    I only hope we build on the success of the last two games.... the draw we got at Easter Road felt like we’d just won the cup! I feel if we go out with the same attitude then Hibs have everything to fear...
