    Motivation (or lack of)

    I donít know if it is just me, and if it is fair enough. But the way we are playing and the general style of play hasnít got me buzzing to get up on Saturdays and get to the games.

    Thatís not to say there hasnít been really good moments in certain games, but I feel like we are always just falling short somehow or we arenít having a proper go at teams the way I feel Hibs teams should and not having enough shots on goal etc.

    As I said, it might just be me, and I am not wanting to moan here, more looking for others feelings and thoughts and if Iím well of the mark, to be put in my place and a rocket up my a**e 😂

    Whatís the positives?

    got to agree Iím no looking forward to Saturday. Our style of play is boring and slow. Last night was more intensity but it will be back to pass square back square side ways then dunt it forward into channel. We need a result Saturday or pitchforks will be out.

    I was in your camp before the break we had for covid but I think weíve played well since coming back, yeh we lost against county and last night but thereís been a huge difference in tempo work ethic and thereís been some really good passing moves, guys like JDH and Cadden have been playing extremely well since we came back, Nisbet looks sharper doidge is on the road back now few more weeks weíll have tait and mueller in the door.

    Itís not all bad the results should be better but I donít think weíre far away

    Apart from all the forward passes out the back and midfield in to the foot of the strikers and wing backs yes.
    A great day out ruined by the football

    I'm hoping if we can get doidge fit and playing we can get back to the 1 touch layoff stuff from him and Kevin.

    I take it your happy with our style off play or are you being sarcastic.
    ( best form of wit by the way).

    Iím also well aware of the cup final and the run to the final has consisted of really good performances, but just looking for that a bit more.

    Itís more wanting to see our creative players get more frequent opportunities.

    Well. The Huns behave badly and get away with it. There are shiny new big screens. There's a club or Association or whatever for particular sorts. Behind the goals is still closed. Can't get a beer inside the stadium- see point no.1.
    Referees appear to be no longer being Inept/biased, probably both.

    That's surely enough to fire yourself up.

    No Iím not being sarcastic, Iím recalling the game and thinking about how well I thought we knocked the ball about.

    Can definitely see some improvement the past few matches when it comes to how nice the football is.

    I'm not sure I'm ever going to really love this Hibs team in it's current guise (that's team, not club). However it would be churlish not to acknowledge the improvement in performance since the covid break.

    That improvement really needs to translate into points though. For all I acknowledge the improvement, it's still 3 points from a possible 9 in our last 3 games.

    Fwiw I'm not particularly enthused about watching Hibs at the moment and haven't been for some time. Last season I put it down to not being there, I thought I would be buzzing to be back but I'm not really. Truth be told I haven't enjoyed football, aside from Hibs, for years. Maybe that lack of enjoyment is just slowly spreading.

    I genuinely think weíre absolutely brutal to watch at the moment and have been for a while now. Jack Ross is far too negative for my liking. I donít care who we play against, but in this league we should never be settling for a draw at home against anyone.

    The game was crying out for Allan & Murphy to come on to give us a spark as Rangers were there for the taking . Bringing them on as soon as we conceded was laughable and hugely predictable. The crowds seem to be getting worse as the season goes on and I firmly believe itís due to the totally boring football on offer.

    I know this comes across as a negative post but itís just my honest assessment on how weíre doing at the moment. Hopefully in January with good recruitment we can start playing more attractive football and start picking up better results along the way.

    Absolutely brutal at St Johnstone at the weekend right enough. Iíll even Chuck in the semi final. Brutal right enough.

    To be fair, my original does state there has been good moments here and there, itís more the way we play the majority of the time.

    I hope this changes for you, thereís nothing better than having that real buzz of going to the games knowing youíd be entertained!

    Who would have ever thought the only real excitement from the fitbaí the now would be following the national side 🤣.

    Worlds went topsy turvey.

    PB has it spot on though. As the same age it might be a generational thing.

    Youíre spot on. We also started the season playing some really good football and were exciting to watch. But injuries to magennis, Murphy and doidge, combined with little or no recruitment have made it difficult and performances suffered.

    Can't disagree, it's great to get out of the house on a Saturday and I really enjoyed the game at Perth but I was honestly half thinking of watching last night's game on TV with a beer and that's not something I do. It's the home games that are wearing me down a bit, maybe I was expecting too much after that Ross Co game early in the season.

    Folk on here can moan all they want but we haven't had a "bounce" since the false dawn of the early Hecky days and even that was nowhere near the heights of early 2018. Rightly or wrongly a lot of fans just won't go to the games until we start playing more attractive football. I was really pleased with the way we kept the ball on Saturday but disappointed JR didn't really go for it last night by bringing on Murphy as we just were not going to score.

    Looks like we will need to be patient, the January window isn't going to solve everything. We were pretty expansive and good to watch early season so hopefully JR still intends to have us playing this way once he gets the right players in.

    I have been guilty myself of posting how boring the football can be under Ross and it would be impossible to play like man city or Liverpool every weekend but we have played some good stuff this season.

    Played some decent stuff at Motherwell first game of the season and then we blew away both Ross County and Livingston at home (which we should be doing)

    Battled away at tyncastle and then Ibrox where it looked to To good to be true at 0-1 how well the season had gone so far.

    No doubt we put in some stinkers later on but no one can accuse the manager or the players for not responding and starting to buckle up, last night was disappointing not to take anything but let's get behind the boys Saturday.

    Valid point about the home games and pretty much how I feel. Home form is patchy at best and the thereís no life about the place. Much prefer an away day (not so much Dingwall on a Wednesday night) and generally find them more enjoyable.

    Every time I read another unhappy post in another thread moaning about the manager and/or the style of play, I can't help but think... : thank **** there was no social media in Alex Miller's day. The internet would have broken.
