    Just had a wee chuckle at that, a RE teacher at a catholic school being outed as an orangeman.. As if the RC church didn't have enough going on!
    Please forgive my ignorance

    We were glad that we had a view down the coast, the time passed a bit slow and we were glad the game was over. One of the most boring games ever at ER and next season we won't even have the view to while away the hours so they can stick the ST where the sun don't shine !.
    If Rod is happy to tout that as a product for next season then he should step aside as well.

    I thought we only improved slightly in the second half because the huns went into 1st gear, they looked more than comfortable almost every time we attacked in the game.

    If Miller was any good it could have been 3 or 4 by half time.

    I'd agree with that, if you watched kyle and lafferty they played off each other and knew where the other one was going to be. That's not the case with our front line, to often riordan and stokes where miles apart from each other so the killer pass never worked.

    Lots of effort but still we have a way to go

    I think Kyle and Lafferty are too similar to play up front as a partnership. In fact are they not the same person

    Harsh, IMHO. We were minus Bamba, Miller and Zemmama and started with yet another makeshift back 4. Hogg went off at half time (presumably because of injury).

    For the players that Yogi had available, I thought we gave a credible performance. I'd be expecting a lot better with our starting 11 available, but for what it was, it wasn't bad.
    WE ARE HIBERNIAN F.C. ...

    No wonder we lost - the Huns had FOUR up front. Kenny and Miller ran riot as well

    We need a central midfielder in the squad that can run at defences. That would have made a difference today.

    My exact conversation at the game today at Half time. I would have hooked Wotherspoon for Benji at Half time and broght on Galbraith for Cregg with 20 to go and just went for it.

    Agree with this completely. We could have done with a Dean Shiels type of player today. Although, I think we need two full backs (along with a striker, centre mid, centre defence, wingers, not much though ) who can get forward as well. I like Ian Murray, however, he is not a full back in my eyes...

    Where was the lack of effort today?


    ...I saw lots of lack of effort today. That being when a normal footballer will put effort in and try to run by his man or trick him with a bit of skill rather than immediatley shirk it by slotting it back or hump it aimlessly forward.

    Even the ever committed Ian Murray is starting to get dragged down to the level of most of his team mates. Rankine's disgrace of a ball to Deek on full time being a perfect example.

    I think it was an improvement today mainly due to the fact that Rangers never got out of 2nd gear. I reckon if we had been able to put any pressure on Rangers, they could have easily upped it a couple of gears and more than likely beat us by more than one.

    They had so much pace in there team with miller, lafferty, naismith and novo.......thats ultimately what gives you an edge in games like these. We need a couple of players with pace to pose a threat at the other end. A lot of Rangers play came from long balls and flick-on's, with there strikers or wide midfielders bursting on to the ball.
    Rangers knew they only needed one goal to win the title. They got that goal pretty early on and from then on, they just had to focus on defending and making sure that they didn't concede.

    However, I wouldn't describe our performance today as gutless or clueless as I thought we had some great chances and if we had had a competent referee in charge today then we might have got something out of the game.

    Best on show for me today was Murray, Thicot (really really good showing today), and Riordan. Wotherspoon just needs confidence but got himself into two great scoring positions through good pacy one touch football. Another poster was bang on though - Rangers never had to step up the gears, and we are slow, laboured, dithery, unimaginative and really........quite poor. Stokes and McCormack had stinkers, and I thought Smith for some reason second half had some sort of coupon on for 2-0 or 3-0, as he kicked shockingly twice under no pressure, and twice left balls to go out for corners when it was clear they had taken a touch of a Hibs head. Every player seemed to want to take a touch again instead of crisp one touch stuff. No pace or width and no real spark. No player(s) that gets the fans off their seats (other than Riordan on the odd occasion. And message for Alan Gow - son, and pass this on to the other subs, don't go chatting and joking with your ex team mates when you should be focused on warming up and getting those skinny wee legs moving. All four of the subs were larking around as per until Evans gets out and has them doing the most mediocre and unenthusiastic little sprint routine. Gow stands blethering with Broadface for 10 minutes. Am I just getting a right Meldrew-esque fan, or do others want to see our subs show a wee bit interest and desire, and not lark about. Maybe I just want a team of 15 right hard bar stewards that don't talk to the opposition at all until after the game and get right stuck into them for 90 minutes. Save the socialising for the boozer, facebook and twitter ya caaaant !
