A lot of families wait until the first week or two of the school holidays. Seen a few Hibees out in Spain this week who will be at Easter Road every week but won't make games in July.

But for now anyway Mon the Hibs. Good start to his Hibs career for S.Murray.

Don't agree with that at all. School holidays will still be school holidays so families will still mostly go away then. Even if they don't, where they all going on holiday to in winter? Not many short haul places to fly to with guaranteed sunshine and out door pools in winter. And what about those who holiday in the UK? Where they going on holiday in winter time :confused:.

Marciano distribution good.

Defense yet to be troubled really with porteous looking comfortable in possession.

McGeouch running the game, with Fraser Murray looking good.

SJM forgot his shooting boots today.

Simon Murray - good work rate and header, could have added at least one more.

Boyle, unlucky hitting the beans on toast, touch and build up play has been poor.

All in all, look like we could go up a few gears if required, very comfortable.

Pre season friendlies are all about getting the team ready for the start of the season its their only reason d'etre, regarless of any results. Win 5 pre season games on the trot but then lose your opening game or two of the new season represents a bad pre season IMO. Losing games but winning your openers means a good pre season. Its not about the results its about being ready for the coming season.

Ridiculous and growing amount of people, not just Hibs fans, seem to think they have a god-given right to judge who is good enough for their team. And even worse, have the delusion to think they are important enough to voice disapproval whenever they want.

Football fans can't half be vain and obnoxious these days.

Thats a shame. The lad has struggled a bit with us but he doesnt deserve that and its not exactly going to do his confidence alot of good. Glad he tucked the penalty away. Keep your head up Brian.
Liam Craig got the same treatment & he's never said a bad word about his time at Hibs.

Fraser Murray excellent.
Ryan P excellent
Dylan best player on the park first half.
Simon Murray great work rate, will score plenty. Plenty people complaining caused he missed a few - they obviously forget all the changes Cummings would miss in a game.
SJM good first half - poor second.

I really wish our wing-backs would actually get to the byline. No idea why we always turn back inside - especially on Grays side.

Overall a very good workout for the team.

I don't think either are really properly comfortable crossing the ball. Cutting inside means there's an option for a pass, taking it to the byline makes it more likely they'll need to cross it.

Very comfortable today - 4 nil going on a lot more.

Everyone pretty solid - don't think Rocky had a save - though they had one chance - diagonal over Gray which the guy put wide.

Good start by both Murrays.

Simon - will score goals and good return already.

Fraser - he could be the missing link in the attacking midfield role to score goals - but quite a lot to ask from a 17 year old.

We need to get better at freekicks - hopefully Swanson will take over on that front - Swanson will improve our quality from corners too.

Still think looking at our bench we need more depth.

I know today no Efe, Hanlon, Swanson and SW but need a little more quality.

Interesting to see without Cummings - others are chipping in with goals which we have wanted for a while.

Final trivial moan - seagulls again and they still haven't that bit of grass in front of the east stand / PA system stil crap.

Good solid performance today. I think the players intentionally took their foot off the gas at 2-0 up, as there was no real need to put more into the game than needed. Some of the passing in the first half hour was the best i've seen in quite some time. Good to see balls being played in the space in front of the wingers, rather than directly to them or behind them. Was surprised at the amount of space Montrose left on the wings, especially on Stevensons side. Despite the odd lapse in concentration, it was comfortable overall.

If football was regularly to be played in the summer many folk would change their holidays accordingly. League fitba crowds would IMO definitely go up. This format really isnt really a good comparison to make is it?
Like many others have said, change their holidays to when? I was disappointed to miss Lewis's game last week and today's - my flight home from my summer hols means I will be in Dingwall on Friday tho. 👍

Every year we get the same nonsense about "crowds would go up in the summer". I appreciate increased crowds in summer is your opinion, but mine is that season ticket sales would plummet if ever summer football became reality. I hope it never does and this rubbish league cup format is changed next season.

I have no idea what people's problem with Graham is.

He did well when he came on against Sunderland last week.

His link up play was excellent today. I don't remember him losing the ball or setting a foot wrong the whole time he was on the park. He got under a couple of back post crosses but they were both overhit and nobody would have stood a chance of doing more with them than Graham did.

He won't be one of our highest earners, he came in as a squad player, played a small part last season but did what we asked of him when called upon.

I actually think he's quite useful. He knocks his pan in, looks like he's desperate to impress and always wants to score.

We've had so many utter impostors over the years we should show a bit of respect and appreciation for a guy who is a totally wholehearted and reasonably handy squad player.

For every f****y who boos him, I'm sure there are at least a dozen of us who are quietly urging him to succeed.

Agreed. We have had worse and he offers us something different right now we don't have.

He's not Grant Holt but he will put himself about and give his all.

If you watch the yams new signing Cole Stockon he's less mobile and Graham will score more.

I quite like Brian Graham. I think Murray will be a far bigger player for us, but Graham has done very little wrong and still scores at a decent rate especially when he rarely gets a good run in the team. Some nice touches today, good work rate, got in the box and his attitude in grabbing the ball for the penalty is what I want to see in a player. Considering how sparingly he has been used it would have been easy for him to go in the huff but he looks like he has a great appetite for the game.

Round about me in the east it was a case.of "aw naw " as against boos ...after his PK on Tuesday a bit understandable and especially as on Tuesday after the PK miss he was poor head went.right down !

Hibs played some really nice stuff in the first half especially and McGeouch absolutely bossed it until he went off, my MOM even if he didn't play the full 90 .... some of the long range diagonal balls from him and McGinn were superb in the first 45 minutes.

We definitely eased off a bit in the 2nd half and it seemed to affect McGinn who went back to his bad habit from last season of giving the ball away with some poor short range passes ..... I liked the look of Porteous and I've no idea why the ref spoke to him for what was a crunching but fair tackle in the 2nd half, it was good to see that the lad isn't afraid of a 50/50 :greengrin

Both Murrays had good games ...... Simon could and should have had a hat trick, but the keeper stood up well to him when he got in one on one. I didn't hear the alleged booing of Graham when he came on, but there certainly was a reaction from the crowd when he grabbed the ball for the penalty, probably because he put his last one in the Tweed .... good for him for taking the responsibility.

Finally poor Oli Shaw .... so unlucky to only hit the bar against Sunderland and then today he blazed pretty high over from a good position and then made a hash of a chance that came close to the sitter variety right at the end .... his movement was excellent though and its only a matter of time till he scores for us.

Very impressed with Porteous today, composed on the ball and pinged a few really good passes about. F Murray got MOM and he was good although he wasn't as good as McGeoch who was excellent in the first half. Simon Murray's first touch wasn't nearly as bad as I was expecting after reading last weeks reports on here. He must be a bit of a nightmare to play against as he is constantly running off his markers and looking for the ball - he never stops, and took both his headers well. Lennon said after the game that we are still looking to bring in another 2 or 3 quality signings as he feels the squad is a little light, which was good to hear. All in all a good day out apart from the rats with wings dive bombing the FF lower and spoiling the view from the upper. Sooner we're allowed to shoot the bloody things the better.

Sorry to disagree but you said new season started today and we were nowhere near ready. In my reply I gave you a team for today based on players who were signed at that time. If you meant 5 August you made your comment almost 5 weeks before the Partick game and surely that was far too early to be saying that.

I was at the game and it was okay. 4-0 against a League 2 side isn't anything to get too carried away about but it was a comfortable win and the team will get stronger every time they play together. Simon Murray runs around a lot and works hard, and credit to him, he chipped in with a couple of goals, Fraser Murray still looks quite raw but also looks as if he'll be a really good player in the future. Took his goal really well. Probably the best indication of how this current Hibs team is progressing will be when we play Ross County, but that's just my opinion.

Probably the most one sided game I can ever remember

Hibs looked very good for first 25 - 30 minutes then when the game was won took their foot of the gas big time and got pretty sloppy for about half an hour before cranking it up again later.

I would like to think they were conserving energy and it was very close and muggy yesterday.

When they were at it in the first 25-30 McGinn and McGeouch were very good. I love watching McGeouch he just oozes class and composure.

Both Murray's were very good, but Simon's first touch and control are a bit iffy and he needs to become a better finisher.

The goalie made two good saves from him but his lack of precision made them saveable whereas they shouldn't have been.

He will do fine for us though and will maybe improve when he calms down a bit as he may be trying too hard to impress.

Fraser is very slight, but a really intelligent footballer with a good touch, it will be interesting to see how he fares in the hurly burly of the SPL.

Porteous is going to be a great player in a very difficult role for a young man and is also a good footballer with a good pass and weight of pass on him. I would class him as more Hanlon that McGregor but with a harder physical presence and rougher edge than a younger Hanlon.

A good team performance where everyone played their part with no failures. Not a team robust enough IMO for the rigours of the SPL but with plenty of players who weren't available yesterday to come into contention.

We could do with IMO another couple of strikers and another creative midfielder but other than that are good to go.

I am more convinced than ever that we were right to let those we did leave, leave including Fyvie, but with the possible exception of Keatings (depending on what forward replacements we bring in)

If Murray was signed as Keatings replacement I would be okay with that as IMO other than the odd spectacular goal and his set plays Keatings all round game wasn't what we required.

If he wasn't scoring his contribution was minimal and Murray has a better all round game
