Going to take the plunge and start the 1st updates thread of the new league season. Lovely day for football, big crowd expected and that new season optimism that's either confirmed or obliterated by 4.45pm today.

C'mon the Hibees.

Surprised with Whittaker over Mackie but his experience and footballing ability is definitely superior so it makes sense. Otherwise the team I'd have.

Not sure he does. I would have played him, if you can’t play him at home to St Mirren when can you? But I don’t think he’s been brilliant pre season.

The manager has had plenty of time to assess the players, so let’s get behind them - all of them.
Looking forward to it...

I've no issue with Whittaker or Mackie. Neither are 1st choice and both will be squad players as and when Lewis and Gray are fit. The manager has made a choice and time will tell if it's the right one.

This is exactly why we still have Whittaker, and why he will still play a good number of games this year. He’ll fill in when first choice players aren’t there.

We should start getting stuck in about Whittaker now. Save some time after the game when some posters decide he was responsible for everything that we did wrong.

Agreed. I think folk are being too fussy with Whits. He covers lots of positions and does it well. He was good at left back against St Mirren last season as well.

Whittaker also has the ability to move into midfield if we need to change formation / injuries etc.

While he is not everyones fave, he should be good enough for this match.

Hes been ***** since returning to the club. He hasnt justified his wage in a similar vein as Milligan but he gets more breathing room because of his first spell when he was a completely different player and superior. He isnt good enough.

Whittaker is just an easy scapegoat. Is he the same player who performed so well for us and Rangers years ago? No. Is he half as bad as some make out? Also no.

Decent squad player. No more, no less.

The argument usually goes if x number of managers keep picking a player we’re all wrong - same goes for Whittaker surely?

I agree and this should be a game where he isn't stretched too badly defensively as I'd expect us to have most of the ball. Having said that, if they have any wide players with pace he could be in for a tough time, especially if he is at LB with Newell ahead of him.

I think it’s mainly because of the three year deal which was outrageous. New season new start and the boys a hibs legend.

Whittaker wouldn’t be in my hibs team, or squad for obvious reasons. But the gaffer sees it differently, so FFS can we not just support the guy?

I’ve seen many worse players, and they all get my full backing when they’re wearing the jersey.

One poor bit of play will be jumped upon by a section of the support awaiting gleefully for it to happen. Never understood that mindset and feel sympathy for Whitty as he need to put in a MOM level of performance to escape any attention. Thing is though, he is more than able to do that.
Feeling quite optimistic for a positive start to the campaign.

Have been critical of Whittaker for the past two years. “Legs gone” “past it” and do on

Watched him on The Newcastle game and he was a standout. I have no idea what we have been watching past couple of years but this was a fit mobile and very capable SW.

I haven't been that impressed.

We've not really created anything and our man on the ball is often short of options.

St Mirren quite comfortable so far and are forcing us into mistakes.

They look likelier to score imo.

Vela and Mallan being shut down very quickly to stop us creating anything.

We look short of confidence. Mallan electing to hoof an aimless ball from a yard inside our own box when there was a 5 yard pass to Allan on is a prime example.

Somewhere between a C+ and a B-.

St Mirren are sitting deep getting men behind the ball, not surprised by that, looking to frustrate us in the middle of the park.

We've shown some flashes so far, but need to be more consistent

Look semi decent on the very few occasions we played it quickly up front. Otherwise, it's just been rubbish.

Big improvement in tempo needed in the next 45.

He's drifting around quite high up the park and we're struggling to get the ball to him, involved a wee bit more last 5 minutes.

Its not gonny be electrifying stuff under heckingbottom thats for sure.

He likes a nullifying approach with a strong bench to change a tight game.

Its not my favoured hibs approach,but as long as my teams not getting beat I will be content.

We still need signings though.
And preferably one that gets us off our seats or a marquee type.
Don't think we've had one yet.

No he's not. Pick of the players so far imo.

I agree. No one is looking for the ball from him. Close to the end of the half he played a ball which Horgan should have made the move for. Horgan acknowledged this, to his credit.

It has been pretty poor though, lack of cutting edge and Flo is not a lone striker. Not convinced by Newell and Jackson looks slow.

Wonder what you think of vela and Mallan if you think Allan has been very poor. I do wonder if Heckingbottom has watched videos of his previous spells with us though, he’s wasted at right midfield, he should be playing where Mallan is.

Ironically I actually think an approach like this will see us do OK at Ibrox next week. It's stuffy and we often have 2 midfielders playing right on top of our own back 4. Unfortunately it's not conductive to opening up St Mirren at home.

Allan head and shoulders above everyone else on the park. Defence looking comfortable with Whittaker in particular playing really well. The rest of the midfield and forward players have done very little of note. We've had the occasional piece of incisive attacking play but far too few.

At the moment it isn't quite working. Would like to see us go 4-4-2 second half with Doidge up front with Kamberi.

No he's not. Pick of the players so far imo.

Whitts by far the standout in the first half. Allen has lost the ball far too much and that frequently makes him try a harder pass next time like a gambler chasing lost bets. It works sometimes but more often than not we lose possession.

Flo needs to stay more central for me as we have had a few good crosses with hardly anyone in the centre of their box. Some nice one twos to get behind them and they have set up very solid with two banks of 4 very well organised.

If Allen is playing so far up the park I'd rather have Doidge up there.

Common thread here is we have no real width today.

As we do not have Boyle, which is a serious blow to us, and the other guys out wide are not up to it Hecky needs to change it.

Agree with an earlier point that we have a Ł350k player on the bench, seems odd to me as well.

Get Doidge on and up front with Kamberi. Allan who is a class act and Mallan should at some point in the second half be able to slot our strikers through.

Hope we do not go gung-ho at the end and lose a silly goal as a home defeat in the first game of the season to one of the worst teams in the league would be damaging.
