    When we gonna get over it ?

    At what point do we get over it and move on ? Surely we need to start looking forward to next season

    The Scottish cup result was shocking to put mildly, however the constant barrage of abuse the club gets when ever it puts anything online is now OTT. If we had got knocked out in the quarters then no one would be even talking about it now

    I have no doubt the players, manager know they letís us down but isnít it about time we get over it and move on ? The abuse, comments is helping no one

    Maybe we'll be over it if we stop starting threads to point such things out.

    TBF, I think things are settling and people (self included) are doing exactly as you suggest.

    I was over it by the Sunday, I have been witness to numerous disappointments results following Hibs since 1968. I am fortunate that our results no matter how disappointing they are have less of an effect the older I get.
    The disappointments are far more than the successes but I would not give up a day of following the Hibs for anything else

    I'm over it.

    Was apathetic straight after the game, got gradually more irritated over a few days then practically forgot about it and moved on.

    We lost a football match, it's not like we stood aside and watched our club die or anything.

    Perspective is important.

    I agree. Why keep dredging it up? I think everything that could have been said has been said over the last week or so. Time to move on.

    I was a miserable git for a week. Fully over it now. We move on.

    I didn't realise there was abuse directed at the club online........ some folk have a different idea of 'supporting' the club I suppose.

    Fortunately this place has become calmer, but there are plenty roasters on Facebook & Twitter who seem far from over it.

    I don't think the result was shocking. St Johnstone have shown they know how to repeatedly beat us. What was shocking was the attitude we turned up with. Anyway i'm annoying myself as it's been done to death.

    When the new kit is launched or a new signing is announced, that will help focus the minds on next season.

    I'm long over it. The older I get the less these things bother me. Some of the nutters on Facebook/Twitter are far from over it.

    About 12 hours after the game finished. Why the hand wringing? It's football, you pick yourself up, dust yourself down and off we go again 😁

    There's not really much else to discuss just now so there is an inevitability that old ground will get a going over again and again. Make a signing, release a strip or whatever and people will find something else to talk, or moan, about. Of ourse there are the obsessives who will still see fit to hurl abuse at the guy that runs the Twitter account as if he is reporting exactly what is said directly to Ron. Those types are best ignored though.

    Interestingly, and I think this was mentioned on another thread, I think this forum is a lot more measured and tame than people want to believe about the current position we are in. I'm quite surprised by how down a lot of people I speak to are about Hibs. This is either guys who travel home and away every week or are ST holders and semi regular away attendees. It's not entirely reactionary to the final either, it's been creeping in all season. Hopefully it's just a symptom of the inability to attend and they pick up when we get confirmation we can get back in to the stadium.

    An opportunity lost to end the season with something tangible, but the anger has now dissipated and we move on. The fact there were no fans may have had an influence on the game (looking back) with the players under no pressure from the sidelines to up the gears. They shouldn't need it, but it must have been a very surreal experience.

    As for the club's social media, you can't win really - they say and post nothing there would be angst at why not, they post things there are the inevitable replies from those that love to vent.

    It's not been an easy year for those behind the scenes running comms at the club, I think we have to try and understand and respect that - if anything, they've worked hard to get content out under the most trying of circumstances, so they get the thumbs up from me

    I bought the Time For Heroes DVD ages ago as soon as it became available, but unlike most others I had never watched it until yesterday. The first DVD, which covers the cup run and interviews a lot of people, players, Stubbs, etc is really excellent IMO, and if I was neutral (obviously I'm not), I think I would really get what it meant to so very many people. It wasn't just a great day, it was something we'll always remember for the rest of our lives. In particular, it was really interesting listening to Darren McGregor and just what it meant to him. You really get caught up in the emotion, going through it all again, it never becomes boring. Yes, I have moved on from the cup final against St Johnstone, but the way that game was played, by the Hibs players anyway, was completely different from 2016. I can only imagine the players who must really have been hurting after that were the ones that were there in 2016, ie Boyle, Hanlon, Stevenson etc. Nobody can take away what we achieved that day, every one of them was a hero, but let's just make sure we don't ever have to wait that length of time to win it again.

    Iím over it, few days moping and being grumpy as sin (apologies to all those caught in the crossfire), found doing the podcast after it very cathartic though.

    Right now I can see it as a stumble in an otherwise very positive trajectory for the club.

    I genuinely believe that weíre headed for great times under the current owner and management team (from Mathie to Ross) and that this could be the very start of what will be viewed as something of a golden era for the club in years to come.

    If you strip it back, it was a shocking performance in a game of huge significance, but itís not reflective of the team we are aspiring to be.

    The idea of strengthening the team this summer is exciting, and Iíve every faith that weíll spend money wisely to do so.

    I got over it surprisingly quickly. Probably a combination of low expectations and not actually being at the game.
    Having been at so many of our Hampden debacles it's much easier for me to deal with sat with friends and family at home.

    Yep,I have the same feeling and I go back to the late 50's,my major hope is Ron Gordon, who I think is a man with a vision and one who is unlikely to just settle.

    From shock to anger, now just left with disappointment. Quite used to losing Cup Finals, but not in that manner. This was a new even for a Hibs fan.
