Keatings over Boyle?
And when do we give Virtanen a game as he's going need play against Dundee Utd,

If we go and win then my questions are meaningless and sounds like am just moaning but if we get beat, 4 big calls in a big game...

Possibly 4-3-3 or the horrible 4-4-2 diamond.

Surprised we haven't started the younger keeper - doubt he will start on Tuesday against Falkirk.

Maybe keeping him as a unknown for United.

Getting beat this afternoon really is unthinkable. The players Hibs have at their disposal should be good enough to win this afternoon.

That's if they do two things. Take more of the chances they create, and stop gifting their opponents daft goals.

Regarding your keeping him as Unknown against Utd point..

If that's genuine then they should be hammered by the authorities.

For one thing, there are two sets of markings on view, leading to obvious confusion for the players and officials.

Aside from that, what is the point, if they're down already? Ruining the game as a spectacle... just for the sake of it?

Not saying that at all mate but he started a few games recently and didn't do great. And with a narrow pitch not as much chance to exploit his pace. At hampden next week however.......

But why bother, when you're already relegated?

My other point was that they've also failed to cover up the normal markings, which surely IS against the regulations.

If a game can be cancelled when snow covers the white lines, then there must surely be rules in place about having TWO visible sets of sidelines.

Agree with your first sentence.

I don't think the second line causes an issue as the first line is the boundary - would be an problem if it was the other way around ...

Anyway. I guess your main point is that it is "anti-good football". Another reason to get out of a league that has this type of team !

I remember watching Alloa v Falkirk on Alba and there was a few occasions where throw-ins resulted from a player running down the 'outside' line looking for a pass. It's the kind of thing you'd see in a casual game of 5s, but we're apparently ok with it happening in the second tier of our senior game.

I'm getting to this point myself.


We've been ***** for weeks on end yet we carry on playing two similar systems that we don't have the ****ing players to make work - or if we do, we aren't playing them in an optimal position.

Keatings, Stokes and Cummings can't play well together in a 433. Neither are play makers and should be dropping deep into midfield, they are all goal scorers and need to be playing on the shoulder of defenders.

Stubbs, just give playing a flat 4 midfield a go, with two strikers as per the above and see what happens, for **** sake.

This is reminds me of the time when Mixu was in charge and he kept using a 433 for months that wasn't working.

Oh and shouting for Stubbs to go will solve everything will it ? Okay, say he goes, just who do we replace him with ? At this stage of the season it would be madness to sack the manager, [as has been proved in previous seasons]. Yes he appears stubborn and wont change the style of play, but what the Club need is stability, not back to the old days of sacking the manager whenever we go on a run of poor performances and results.

This is a results driven business. If Hibs are not promoted this t
year then perhaps we need a new MT

Hibs have been crap for weeks now. Stubbs is under a bit of pressure with this run of poor results .

It's hardly any time ago, we were talking about losing him to Selick!

It's no just losing to alloa though is it? It's the last 2 months the of utter dross and the very real prospect of at least another year in this league.

And as for wind yer neck in, knock off the snide remarks and you won't get them back.

Except we're nowhere near that stage yet. At least another year? You've got us failing to get promoted next year? At least wait on us failing this year surely?

If Alloa win this it will be their only win at home this season, another first for Hibs.

Hibs camped in the Alloa half at the moment but just failing create clear cut chances.
