We shipped six under Stubbs to Rangers at Easter Road and we shipped four going on eight to Aberdeen at Pittodrie under Lennon. We also shipped three to Killie under Lennon despite the majority of players on the pitch being defenders.
All managers have a horrendous result here or there. We've also had some excellent results under Heckingbottom - 2-1 at Tynie, 2-1 when down 1-0 and down to ten men at St Johnstone we showed a ton of fight are two that leap to my mind immediately.
After a night to sleep on it, yesterday was horrendous and is a pivot point for Heckingbottom. We don't improve he's in trouble, we do improve then it will be forgotten about soon enough, much like how many on here have forgotten about some of the awful results under the last two managers too.
Huge difference between Stubbs' 6 and yesterday's.
Yesterday was meant to be a strong side. Stubbs' side was a work in progress at the time. We had youngsters who were never going to be near the full side starting and it was in the challenge cup. Not the league.
We have sat off them in every single meeting. Thats why he wont last. Hibs fans dont expect us to beat them but they expect us to make sure they know theyve been in a game. We will be both sides easiest games of the season the way we are set up against them.
Personally don't have any issue sitting off then winning the ball and counter attacking but plainly we aren't good enough defensively as a team to do that.
