    Matt Kennedy.

    I just seen on twitter Matt Kennedy has signed with St. Johnstone. I take it its the same one who played for us a while back. Says hes only 23 seems to have been around for ages as well.

    Good signing for them IMO, think hell do well. Was decent for Cardiff at one point IIRC.

    Just noticed that he was a free agent yesterday. I reckon he'd have been a decent signing for us. Think he'll do well.

    Apart from the big deflection goal to equalise against United in the League Cup I can't really remember him being that good. I get he was a young player on loan from a big club but he never got any game time and was pretty ineffectual when he did. Course that may have been down to Stubb's narrow view of how we played but I've put Matty K in the loan players who I'd rather forget. Everton to SFPL in a short spell may say more about Kennedy's attitude/effort rather than outright ability. He'll of course now turn out to be devastating....

    Was a good player for us but his gametime suffered as a result of us switching from a system with wingers to Stubbs beloved diamond formation.

    Good signing for them. Hes someone that would have flourished under NL under this current system that we play. Didnt work out for him when he was here previously as Stubbs preferred a narrow diamond midfield

    He looked fantastic at first, reminded me of Barker actually. Fearless on the ball and drove at defenders every time he got the ball.

    As CG says, Stubbs changed formation and he found game time hard to come by.

    Seems to be a Hibs Net "fact" that Stubbs played a diamond formation. That would be why he signed Boyle, Kennedy, Feruz of course. Mind you most posters on here would insist we need Marv for the big games such as the one on 21/5/16. Stubbs changed the system regularly depending on players available to him & the opposition set up. He was rewarded for his courage & invention on that famous day.

    Played in the 1st 4/5 games when Hibs Stubbs took over
    Think he was hooked after wed lost 3 out of first 4 League games that season in the championship
    Won home to Livvi, then lost away to Hearts, home to Falkirk and then away at Alloa
    I wonder what it would have been like on here, the day we lost to Alloa😬

    It is a basic fact that Stubbs liked a narrow midfield and generally avoided wingers

    He would either play a narrow diamond or a 3-5-2, both of which were used on 21.5.16

    Feruz was a striker and the fact that Boyle was mainly used up front or at right wing back while Kennedy struggled for a game is just further evidence for this

    Kennedy returned to Everton at the start of January 15, well before Stubbs started using 3-5-2/5-3-2.

    Feruz was a striker and Boyle spent the most part of his early months at Hibs as a sub.

    Stubbs played a 3-5-2 from September/October time. After a few defeats to Alloa and QOS he used 3-5-2 as a back to basics type approach and to give us more defensive cover.

    We played 3-5-2 when we beat Ross County away in the League Cup and then when we beat Rangers 3-1 at Ibrox. Only after that run and when Scott Allan and McGeouch got fit and started to flourish, did we switch to the diamond.

    But as Brog says, Stubbs played various formations in both seasons

    Both he and Gray. One made up for it about a year and a half later though...

    IIRC Gray's pen was actually quite good but it was an unbelievable save from the United goalkeeper.

    Bartley was an unused sub on 21.5.16.

    It is a fact, Stubbs played a diamond or 3-5-2. We didn't need Marv Vs that Rangers team because we were better than them.

    Can't multi quote... Was the unbelievable save not from Alex Harris?. Those quoting the Brogs Marvin Bartley post are agreeing with him if you read the post properly. The tone of the posts suggest you don't.

    Yes after John Rankin skied his MK had the kick to put us through. Regardless of what happened to United after that, this was one of the games that officially turned us around.

    I agree, it was the start of the turnaround and the position we find ourselves in now. I remember at the end of the pens, every Hibs fan stood up to applaud the team that night.

    Its a fact not just a Hibs.net fact.

    He started playing it around the October of his 1st season which led to Kennedy losing his place in the team and being sent back to Everton in the Jan. Boyle was signed as a striker and thats where he played in his early games for us. Feruz was a Centre forward not a wide player.
