Far too many people write players off after 1 or 2 mistakes. Its really odd behaviour. Defenders will make loads of mistakes during a season - all footballers do. But the players we currently have are as good as any outside of the old firm. Get behind them - give them time to gel - and we will see the benefits.
I was a bit harsh on Jackson earlier in the season and he took a while to win me over, but credit where it is due. He was excellent last night and I hope he goes from strength to strength. Really encouraging to see both him and Hanlon chipping in with goals, and a lot of that is down to Newell's excellent corners.
Was impressed with his ability to drive forward with the ball from defence, a couple of times against county where he picked the ball up on the edge of the box and carried it 40-45 yards up the pitch, terrific in the air also and doesn't complicate things when he has the ball, does the simple thing when needed. Another player that has finally found his way.
I feel his time with Hibs is pivotal to his whole career. He's in his mid 20s now (25 I believe) and so far he's not made any significant impression where he has played previously. Less than 30 games on loan with Conference side Hartlepool and less than 40 league games in 3 seasons at Barnsley and thats about it.
