Sun has already gone down over in Stockholm, let's hope it's better weather for Hibs penultimate home game of the season.

Hibernian FC ‏@HibsOfficial (https://twitter.com/HibsOfficial) 22m22 minutes ago (https://twitter.com/HibsOfficial/status/807587177064435713)
STARTING XI | Laidlaw, Gray, Hanlon, Fontaine, Bartley, Stevenson, Boyle, Shinnie, McGregor, Graham, Cummings.


5-2-3 with Bartley in midfield? It is a mystery. Otherwise, decent selection.

Strange formation but good to see us putting out an attacking team.

A bit worried how we'll dictate the play and create chances with that midfield.

With Boyle and Shinnie wide?

I think I'd prefer that to 5-2-3 tbh. Our width coming further up the field would be a good thing.

Sloppy start.

Hard to see where the creativity is going to come from.

Really lacking in ideas when we're about 40 yards from goal.

Our best chance will be from a hoof up the park or a set piece.

Pretty primitive stuff.

Cummings hasn't done much but he's hit a few cracking corners in.

If Lennon's looking for him to make a bigger contribution than just scoring goals, he may have found a way to get him to contribute more.

That half was nowhere near good enough but we got the goal.

We get the same 3 points for an ugly 1-0 as we do for scoring 4 or 5 and we shouldn't turn our noses up too much at getting wins.

Shocking first half. Got a row from my mates for moaning but after I shut up they kept it going. No shape, basics missing, Dumbarton not being pressured on ball, a half hour of blasting it forward. Decent corner for the goal and a good finish bit it only papers over the cracks.

I will be even more worried in our manager if that team comes out without any changes in personnel or shape. Simply not good enough.

Having a premiership team in this league saw us finish third. Lovely football but couldn't scrape results against Dumbarton when they sat in. We need a championship team to win the championship. It's been ugly today but I can't think of a shot on goal they've had - this board has been legit brutal today. Just now a pig ugly win is better than a nice looking draw.

Considering four important players are out injured it was never going to be pretty. That'll do today.

Another sensible post, people are forgetting how many first team regulars are out just now.

Having a premiership team in this league saw us finish third. Lovely football but couldn't scrape results against Dumbarton when they sat in. We need a championship team to win the championship. It's been ugly today but I can't think of a shot on goal they've had - this board has been legit brutal today. Just now a pig ugly win is better than a nice looking draw.

The 'I'll take 1-0 every week' line? The problem with that is it does not work that way in reality. Teams that struggle to score goal tend to slip up every now and again. Today is a win and everyone will be happy with that but it would be stupid to ignore the warning signs in a performance like this.

It's only a small advantage but if we keep building on it, it'll be like an extra point.

United apparently got away with it at Somerset.

I truly don't care, we tried the pretty but ineffective stuff under Stubbs and finished third. We won today and remain top of the league.

Plus we won by more than one goal and increased our GD advantage.

All we can do is keep winning and hope we get the rub of the green when we next play the Arabs.

I disagree, struggling to score goals is as likely to come back and bite them on the arse as it is us. I'd just rather we started putting team away properly so that we can take the element of chance out of it.

Of course, but you'd still rather the 3 points, when, arguably, they weren't deserved

We have continually been told not to ignore these 'warning signs' yet here we are in December and we are top of the league with an increased goal difference. Dundee Utd only won 1-0 today - are their fans bemoaning the fact they could have scored more or are they happy they won? I said back when people were wetting themselves after the QOTS cup game and the Ayr home game, if we win, I don't give a toss how it's done. Missing vital players and playing against a team who are hurting and want to restore some pride. Yet, we don't give them a sniff of goal. That will do for me.

I think that's almost exactly actually the same attendance as at the QOTS game.

Boyle was very average. Made a couple of good runs but his shooting and decision making let him down constantly.

Not sure why Cummings is getting a hard time. Thought he was decent enough today - showed he can do more than just score with a lot of great balls into the box and some sharp passing. Shinnie was also good.

I thought Boyle was decent, probably marginally my MOTM. When we were playing at our worst, he still looked like the player most likely to make something happen - great attitude.

Shinnie frustrates the life out of me. He's clearly very talented and makes so many major, significant positive contributions for us But he also falls over his feet, gives the ball away frequently and occasionally shells dead balls straight out the park - I can see why some folk get on his back. He's wildly inconsistent, even within the same 90 minutes but he offers us something none of our other players do and in spite of his regular gaffes, he's a first pick for me.

I also thought Cummings was good today. The corners he hit in were immense and without that first goal at an important time we might have been in a world of trouble. We were a constant threat from his corners, and he should have been taking the free-kicks instead of Shinnie on that showing. Nothing was created for him, he was feeding off scraps but I thought he kept possession brilliantly at times and never let his head go down. That wasn't a player who offers nothing other than scoring goals for me.

No one can criticize Boyle's effort that's for sure but he is one greedy so and so, he had a great chance to square to Graham for a virtual tap in to make it 3-0 but as usual screwed the shot horribly wide.

Thought that game was very poor but 3pts are 3 pts and on we go to the next game. :flag:

I like Boyle too but thought he made a couple of bad choices today, unlucky at the end with his shot from distance.

One of the dead balls Shinnie clearly put it where he was supposed to and no one even ventured to the area it was put into. Made it look like he had just kicked it straight out but you could see him asking the bigger lads what they were doing. I think he gets a hard time for someone who always shows for the ball and is constantly looking to go forward. Yes he loses the ball occasionally but only because he is trying to create or runs out of options.

Agree 100% about Cummings, thought he looked sharp and hungry today. Was pretty unlucky with the back heel first half.

Here here!! I had two guys behind me constantly slated Shinnie, he only had a few misplaced passes despite having the bulk of possession in a Hibs shirt and driving us forward at every opportunity. It's no fluke he was always where the ball was throughout the game. The two guys were both gutted he won man of the match after I minutes before said he was the best player on the pitch.

Really surprised people saying Boyle for MOM....had a decent if not great first half....was largely invisible for me in the second half. A couple of runs, one shot...but can't recall anything of note that he did outside that.

Compared to Shinnie who was involved in all that was creative for us...not at the same level

Mind you, overall it was a dogged but poor performance..some of our long balls looked very much like average championship football...
