    While I have watched every game this season, and recently been pretty poor to watch at times, especially so yesterday. I am never bored of watching Hibs, frustrated yes but bored, never.

    I actually didn't think yesterday was boring, as we (mostly) played well in the second half.

    It was the horrendous finishing that spoiled it. I mean, seriously, professional footballers that continually miss the target?

    This sums it up, can't wait to see the games but I get so frustrated watching us. We can go from superb flowing football to passing back and forth and then a lump upfield to Doidge, wins become draws and 1-0 wins should be 5-0 because our shooting and final pass is pants.

    I fully agree Ross' Hibs can be frustrating to watch at times. I think that a lot of the reason behind that though is they are TRYING to play good football. It doesn't always come off though and that's when it gets frustrating.

    The boring tag is not merited IMO but I suppose that's pretty objective. The team is usually trying to play a possession based game rather than playing the ball forward at the first opportunity. They are not bad at it but still plenty room for improvement and when moves break down or even when when the opposition just defend well, it can be frustrating to watch. When it comes together though I think the football can be pretty sexy - and the results so far merit pass marks - so definitely NOT boring.

    To me,the football is so repetitive,passing squarely across the back humping the ball forward or the occasional diagonal,then the abysmal finishing and the increasing habit of not being able to find our own players with a pass is what's getting me down,all IMO I might add.

    Unfortunately thatís extremely likely to keep happening if we play 4 in the middle against a 5. Itís not really groundbreaking stuff, but we need our full backs higher, we need our centre halfís splitting, we need the midfield two showing and receiving, we then need our front 4 interchanging constantly. We are pretty rigid just now and Iím hoping that will change going forward. I still donít find our games boring (I never watched yesterday), when we get the ball wide and forward we are pretty dynamic, and are often involved in higher scoring games.

    For me at the moment having 4 across the middle means the options are limited, Newell will show but the opposition having a spare man results in him just bouncing it back to the defensive line, we canít get it wide high up the park due to this so we go longer to Doidge. Plus we really, really miss Allan in the middle of the park drifting around. Even on his poorer days he occupies at least one player.

    1 - It was a joke.
    2 - I didn't start it and a few people have used the expression since yesterday (also in jest), but go ahead - have a pop at me.
