    That's one sure way of getting over any defeat this season............remembering Pa Kujabi, Isaiah Osbourne and Tom Soares and realising how far we have progressed from then

    I've been watching Hibs for 50 odd years and apart from a few years under Turnbull it's been up and down like a whores drawers, we've been glorious under achievers for the majority of this time, we just don't do steady at Hibs, we're either superb or pure cack, very little in between.

    It was the inevitability I felt as soon as they scored which really spoiled the rest of the game for me, never even celebrated the penalty save as I knew it was irrelevant. Itís been a hard one to stomach, and age has definitely chilled me, but right now Iím glad to see the back of the season. Canít say I feel that particularly bothered about the Euroís either. Iím sure a couple of decent new signings and the excitement of European football will help my Hibs mojo return. Sounds a bit over dramatic but I feel extremely let down by the team as a whole but players I expected to set us apart from St Johnstone just looked as though their heart wasnít in it for some reason and theyíll need to regain my respect and trust because of it. Bad day at the office/fine margins etc etc just doesnít cut it for me, and Iíd hope, nor Ron Gordon. Anyway, appreciate the opportunity to release some of my inner tension......therapy session over😂

    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.
    Iím one of those folk that you mention, that is quite down about Hibs at the moment.

    I donít know if itís as a result of not being able to go for a year (Iím home and away every week). Iíve not enjoyed it all season. Then we won the semi final and it was the first time Iíd really felt good about things all season. I was really up for the cup final, it was the first cup final with my boy, but then the cup final happened.

    Without wishing to be unduly negative, I just donít think I share the optimism that many have. Donít get me wrong, I think weíll be absolutely fine, but thatís about it. Iíll never expect Hibs to win every week but, equally, opportunities like weíve had this season are once in a generation type stuff. Seeing a club like St Johnstone doing a cup double, at our expense, has sickened me to be honest.

    Iím quite glad the season is done now and hopefully I feel a bit differently if/when I can get back in to the stadium.

    The day I get over it is the day the overall man in charge of that day is sacked.

    It's time for these people to be held responsible for such failure.

    The lose to St Johnstone is up there with the Hearts lose. Fenlon held on for abit and he should of gone then. Its exactly the same here, Ross will keep his job and we will be arguing over the same thing in the next 6 months.

    No doubt I'll be shot down in flames here from the same people who swore blind Josh Vela, Chris Maxwell, Tom James were all top signings and not to be so negative.

    It's time we stopped accepting such failures.

    In that case I hope you don't get over it any time soon.

    How is anyone ďacceptingĒ such failures? What benefit do you get from continuing to moan about it? It was pish, but thereís a new season to prepare for.

    I am over thinking about it if that is what you mean?

    But letís be clear that performance and the magnitude of the game, the opportunity etc has set us back at least a year as every big game will be about our bottle. And Jack Ross with Sunderland and Hibs has yet to prove he can get it over the line. He might do it next season and then thatís that but he and the players wonít be able to hide away from no supporters in the ground. If Hampden had 35k Hibees I am not sure Ross or some of the players could recover from what they would have got.

    But yes I am over it 🤣🤣🤣

    Personally over it, got much worse stuff going on in life to worry about than Hibs losing the nth cup final since I was wee.

    I more or less knew the moment St Johnstone got their last second of the game equaliser against Rangers that we were not going to win it. I was convinced we would have beaten Rangers in the final or at least made a better fist of it.

    Exactly how I feel about Hibs atm. Still feel sickened by last week and I donít know what it will take for that to go away. Feels a lot worse than previous final defeats

    Each to their own but with not having been to a game in such a long time I am exactly the opposite.
    I am disappointed we lost, particularly the way we did, but I just want to get back to my seat and watch Hibs live.

    I agree with B.H.F.C but I also agree with you.

    I canít wait to get back into Easter road but Iím happy to have a wee break, I was scunnered up until about the Tuesday or Wednesday. Part of me thinks I donít really care any more I just want the days out again but I know I donít really mean that.

    For a team that finished 3rd Iíve never really thought we were that good so I donít care if anybody leaves, I donít really care who we bring in as I donít imagine we will change how we play.

    I think we will do ok next year without being particularly good.

    Over it about 5 minutes after the final whistle. I've had enough really bad things happen in my life to know that losing a game of football isn't worth tying yourself in knots over.

    I donít think I was ever really that into it. No doubt I would have felt differently if weíd won but I found it so easy to disconnect from it after the final whistle.
    A great day out ruined by the football

    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
    Ditto It used to take me until the next game to get over a disappointment, you're lucky if it's a day now.

    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.
    The absence of a bus home, with a sore throat and an early hangover (and putting up with the few on the bus they havenít hit the hangover yet) was definitely a small consolation.

    Kinda getting used to it now. The boy band mentality at our club is beyond embarrassing. Maybe we should be taking umbrage and maybe weíre ****in well entitled to carry on feeling let down!

    Boy band mentality? How does that relate to the current squad?

    I'm still sore about it, we were well beaten by a team of huddies imo. It would be much worse if we hadn't won it in 2016.

    Some solace to be found in the hard cold fact that the Yams haven't won the League Cup since 1962. Nearly 60 years for goodness sake. That is a beyond embarrassing statistic.

    We are all different but the players were pathetic in the cup final.
    Not so sure you should have shrugged it off by Sunday morning.

    Over it. We're still 4-3 ahead of the Jambos for trophy wins in my lifetime so we're not behind any of the second tier teams in my eyes. Imagine if we had won against, Livi, Ross C, St J though . . . . . .
