No confirmation from Hibs yet, just this........


Hibernian can confirm that dialogue has commenced with East Fife FC with regard to the possibility of a friendly fixture which would take place at Bayview Stadium, Methil at 2pm on Saturday 14 July.

This follows the cancellation of Hibernian's first pre-season friendly fixture against Rapid Bucharest which had been scheduled for Wednesday evening (11 July).

Confirmation of match and attendance arrangements will be published as soon as they are finalised.

Anyone know the best way of getting there by train?

Are there any buses that go from Edinburgh to Methil?

Struggling to find a decent route that doesn't involved taking the car!

Does the X60 not go from Edinburgh to St Andrews? Pretty sure it calls in at the small coastal towns en route up.

X60 and X58 both stop at Leven which is pretty close. Could walk or get a couple of taxis from there.

Crowd of us going, so car isn't ideal.

10:55am will get you to Leven about 12:25pm

Would it be cheaper to just hire a people carrier or small minibus from Arnold Clark from the day then?

£105 for a 9-seater from Arnold Clark comes out at c.£15 each (when you add on the fuel).

Get a train to Kirkaldy.

They get a Number 13 Bus that calls at Methil. It takes over an hour so you will need to be at Kirkaldy Bus Station by 12:00.

I looked it up and it hardly seems worthwhile.

Contacted my coach supplier to see what a 49 seater would cost. Would happily run a bus profit free if I could get the numbers. Around 20 of us had planned on getting the train anyway, so 29 across the messageboards shouldn't be difficult considering how difficult it is to get there.

It's a strange wee ground. Nice stand with good changing rooms etc. Dugouts on the opposite side of the park from the stand. 3 sides walled off and the power station towering over the wall at one side.

Hibernian to start with one striker, Eoin Doyle and Ben Williams and Paul Cairney to make debuts for club

In other words, we are starting with one striker, who is Eoin Doyle. Williams and Cairney are making their debuts.

Looks alright. One wee mistake which allowed someone to get past him, but it didn't really cause any problems.

Subs on at ht: caldwell, ozzy and maybury. Off: doyle, claros and stephens.

Some good passing moves from us. Doyle not sharp yet. Ivan and spoony looking up for it and Clancy has looked very decent so far. McPake solid as ever, and lots of talking from Williams. Claros has made a couple of outstanding passes, just needs to get in the game more.

If we get another character in the centre of midfield who is vocal like Clancy, Williams and McPake I could see that being a huge step forward. A striker or two too then.

Well, here's my two pence worth..

First half was a total non event, we were poor, very poor. We simply can't go into the new season with a midfield that consist's of Wotherspoon and Stevenson, we need better quality in there big time! Don't get me wrong, it was a usual committed performance from Lewis but the fact of the matter is that if we want to move forward as a club and reach a new level then a midfielder of his standard cannot be involved. Same goes for David, for a guy of his age i just can't for the life of me work out why he's just SO incredibly slow. Claros was composed but needs to get involved more in games. I was pretty let down with Cairney, didn't exactly do anything wrong but was a ghost first half.

The defense did ok first half, a few shaky moments here and there but not too bad. Clancy was solid enough in the right back position.

we simply can't (and hopefully won't) go into the new season with just Doyle up front like we did today. He's still far too light weight. Could be a different story however if we sign a good experience striker to play up top with him, he doe's make the odd good run into space.

Second half - MUCH improved. Cairney looks more lively (is he a left midfielder because i thought he was a centre?) This half gave me more hope. Clancy moved to centre half with Mcpake and Alan Maybury brought on at right back. For me, Clancy looked far better in the middle with Mcpake than he did at right back (although as i say, he was solid enough in there). Maybury imo done well. He was alot quicker than i expect and likes to get down the flank and was in the opposition half a good few time's. I'd certainly be tempted to give him a deal and won't be disappointed if pat does. A defense of Hanlon, Mcpake, Clancy, Maybury, could do pretty well.

Ivan was the bright spark on the pitch today, done well. Took his goal brilliantly and was positive going forward. The introduction of Ross Caldwell in the second half was another positive from today. In the first 5 minutes he had already done more than Doyle did for 45. The guy look's strong and he's also quick, hopefully we see alot more of this guy this season. Ozzy also done well when introduced, positive going forward, athletic and strong, i feel he offers something.

All in all a good run out with a much better second half showing than first. BUT....we still need a good few players if we want to avoid another relegation battle. Two midfielders and a striker would make me feel a whole lot more confident :agree:

Decent performance for the first outing of the season. Thought Wotherspoon was our best player today. Cariney did well when he had the ball was willing to run at people. Caldwell look decent when he came on. Maybury was the bigest suprise, he was actually quite good going forward. Clancy and Williams will add to the expreince at the back and were good talkers but we still need a left back to make us solid. Dont think we can play only 1 up front as Doyle needs a partner. Overall a decent first pre season friendly

Not what I saw. He missed a couple of good chances first half. He was also played some good balls down the right but his crossing was poor.

I agree it was a better second half. Definitely need more/better in the striking department.

Wotherspoon did quite well, and unlucky not to get on the score sheet. Stevenson I thought played okay without really trying too hard. First half was played at "bounce game" speed so not easy to make a proper analysis of players (new and old).

Ross Caldwell and Ozzy were the difference today.

Caldwell could be that striker we are looking for: used the ball well, won headers, held up play, had a few shots and nearly set up a goal.

Kujabi looked better in midfield.

I also noticed that the ball was rarely off the ground. The only long ball forward, that I can remember, from an outfield player was maybury but he found his man.

Still got quite a bit of work to do but it is the first game so I'm not worried.

I would agree. Wotherspoon look quite dangerous playing off the striker. When he gets the ball and drives at players he looks a completely different player and he did that a few times today. Osbourne was a million times better than in the final and I know it is only East Fife but seeing him and Spoony trying to dribble with the ball and get involved up top I think things look a bit better.

Spoony quite often plays just off the striker for Scotland under-21s and is very effective there. Hibs just need to sign Jordan Rhodes !

I know this is not related to the Hibs game today but what a great crowd at Dundee today over 10,000 for a pre season game. :agree::top marks
Surely there at too many zeros in there, there could only be 100 at this match as Rangers weren't involved. The Scottish press have told us were all doomed, going bankrupt, followed by a plague of locusts and then years of famine and social unrest without Rangers you know!

Well done the city of Dundee. Can't be bothered to check but I'd bet that the last Utd v Huns match didn't have many more in attendance

Why were East Fife playing in Orange? I thought there colours were Yellow and Black.

Booth was playing LB and Kujabi was in front of him. They were kind of covering for one another, i.e. if Booth went forward, Kujabi stayed back to cover.

For me that's the best part of the day, what a signal of intent, dundee can hold its head up high. Although I'm sure this game would have been arranged prior to them being possibly in the spl but it makes no difference, Armageddon my hoop.

Well done the dees.

Stuff like this makes me want to see us fans collectivley make a gesture to acknowledge this type of thing wether its a banner at a game or whatever, I think this whole sorry situation should bring a lot of clubs and fans together and get back to the friendly rivalry but with the mutual respect teams deserve imo.

Hearts aside :-)

Did anyone else notice the objects thrown onto the pitch in the second half of the game this afternoon? Was sitting near the singing section, and saw 2 items (brown sauce packets) and 1 pen (allegedly laser pen according to the stewards), thrown from behind. Only the pen made it onto the pitch area, others landed at the tunnel. Was also told by a East Fife staff member, that some idiot decided to break some toilets in the men's toilets! If this is true, what total disregard and stupidity!:grr:

Yeah I noticed the pen just miss the security man standing at front, he then radioed to two colleagues to come over and check out what was thrown. No matter what it was it shouldn't have been thrown! Then the wee boys decided to sing 'you're not the real police' to the three security men, oh how offensive....not. Some people need to grow up, as for the toilets I never heard that but if true a small fine coming our way and season not even started yet

Some ******** behind me through something, thought it was a piece of metal at first, lucky it was only a pen otherwise someone could have been hurt. Good to see the people around me not holding back and letting the boy know what a tosser he is.

Toilets were fine at HT?

Was good to hear the PR wifey wish us well for next season. The grub was decent and good value for money!

Well we are off the mark with our first win. PF first full season in charge and his 100% record is intact! The new kit looks seriously good, I think it is the darker green, that works well.

GGTTH This is our season!

I heard that Rod taught him the bending down for a coin technique during pre-season training.

The next lesson will be about catching it on the back of the head.

Rod could tell if its heads or tails when it landed.:aok:

Thanks for the headsup re the thread, as stated, do not post often and didn't realize the merger. As for the toilets, this was discovered at the end of the game when the ground staff checked the toilets for locking up the gates. It was an older man who informed us, mentioned it to another staff member and the female announcer to see if they knew anything about this. Then informed me, they had been told the same thing. I apologized on behalf of the true fans and stated that this was inexcusable! Hope you all don't mind me doing this. I do hope they notify the club about this, not sure if fines apply in pre-season games.

On a side note, the female announcer told me that an older lady popped into their office the other day, (after the SFL meeting to vote "that team" into 3rd Division. She then handed over an envelope with a donation to East Fife FC and said thank you for voting no and keeping integrity intact! Needless to say they were shocked but very thankfull. I thought it was a nice gesture from this other lady, (who was in her 70's and has been a football fan for a very long time)!:thumbsup:

Speaking of Tam, Callum Booth hit him on the back with a ball when the subs were out at half time. CB looked mortified and came over to Tam to apologise while sporting a huge grin. IMO Tam's ball control was awful and he needs dropped :greengrin

Must admit I thought it was a good workout.

We managed to get a good bit heckling in though some of it was slow due to lack of match practice, worked out who a couple of our targets to boo will be this season. got a good bit of moaning about S43(where was the drum?). Disappointed the bench was on the far side of the pitch though as we couldn't heckle the manager.Roll on the new season.................:greengrin

Drum didn't make it due to drummer being away for the weekend!

Was always going to be a struggle for us with only 10-15 folk singing. Can't expect much from a friendly though. Hopefully we will be louder in Belgium after some Stella:cb

Didn't hear it mentioned - stand held 2,000 and the left side was pretty packed. Over 1,000 I would say?
