    In the spirit of togetherness, when the restrictions allow it, we should all meet up on the Links...for a winner-takes-all clappers -v- wetters rammy. I'll pick my side once I see how it's going.

    It's well worth setting up a PPV for that and all

    Difficult to set up a date though, given the number of wetters that only appear after a defeat. ;-)

    Yup, compared to the rest of the Internet this place is a paradise.

    Naw naw naw, thatís not how it works, you pick your side and stick to it rigidly even if the evidence is slapping you round the face with a wet haddock.

    We all want whatís best for Hibs, no question. Nobody is asking for continuous happy clapping but thereís a middle ground between that and the site being as downbeat as it is.
    Itís not nearly as negative or downbeat on here as you make out.

    I think it strikes a perfectly good balance of folk ranting a load of nonsense, those who think the club can do no wrong and everything in between.

    Maybe itís just your take on things?

    Maybe it is. Itís created a lot of debate.

    Maybe I just donít like it when people wallow in negative results? Those same posters who are absent after wins.

    I donít think thereís anyone who sees no wrong.

    The extreme views tend to be on the overly negative side of things.

    After negative results the extreme views on the negative side appear same as the extreme positive views appear when we string a couple of results together.

    Nowhere near it.

    I think that's quite an interesting consideration.

    A lot of the voices complaining about OTT negativity after a run of bad results were many of the same people telling people to calm down and stop being stupid when we were maybe getting a bit carried away with our form at the start of the season.

    I'm certain everyone with a few functioning brain cells knew Hibs weren't going to win the league this year but if we are top of the league for 2 or 3 weeks then I'm damn sure I'm going to enjoy it and milk it whilst it lasts.

    I don't think the board being a humdrum, middle of the road place would leave anyone happy really. A few extreme views here and there sparks discussion.

    I personally found the 'challenging Celtc for 2nd place' chat to be just as weird as the 'Jack Ross, GTF' or 'we only win when we're lucky' stuff.

    We're a slightly above average Premiership team that will have good and bad results, as well as good and bad performances.

    We have players with both talent and flaws. If they had no flaws, they'd be playing at a much higher level.... and I refute any claims that opinion makes me unambitious for Hibs, or that my 'acceptance of mediocrity' (or whatever other barmy phrase is being used) is holding Hibs back in any way.

    During these times when things are tough it's good to at least communicate with someone or group who share a passion for a football club.

    I could go out onto the street and speak with neighbours who are all Leeds fans but they are fed up hearing me going on about being at Elland Road in 1973 when we played them off the park!

    You are doing a great job guys.

    Become a member (not a cock, just a member) and youíll not suffer the lockdown stuff. Youíll still get called names of course, and there are those easily offended, but itís a tenner a year well spent.

    It can get OTT, irrational and ridiculous, like some calling for Ross to be sacked. But it happens everywhere. There are Jambos after Neilsonís head because they lost a cup final on pens and were beaten by Dundee. Football fandom isnít really meant to make sense.

    Some cracking discussions on the go across a few threads today.

    I see .net getting pelters at times but thereís some great chat on here today, good to see it.
    Weirdly I agree. I know Iíve had a wee rant about some of the hyperbole on here but avoided the site for a couple of days after the Livi game and missed, it would seem, the usual suspects wanting to bask in as much misery as possible before vanishing but thereís actually a lot of decent discussion today.

    For the record, I love any opportunity for a good discussion on Hibs. The site has been a haven often this year - in our household this year weíve had three bereavements, two threats of redundancy and the like and itís been a haven to enjoy the football and chat a couple of times a week. Itís almost been a part of maintaining sanity to have a chance to talk about something normal - and itís also why Iíve been more sensitive to the usual WUMs trying to one up each other.

    But aye, lots of good on it in the majority and glad itís here. Itís a shame
    to have to avoid it for a day or two if thereís a loss but it is what it is to some degree.

    We really were ***** on Saturday though😂
