    Great comeback. But can't just rely on outscoring teams. Need to get the defence sorted.

    Alexander is in danger of blowing his credibility. Trying to stirr up guff about on field antics when the only real glaring issue is how Carroll managed to see out the full 90 minutes. I thought that Motherwell played some nice stuff and they have a real find in van Veen. If their forward Woolley can find end product to match his pace they could have a decent season.

    Interesting as I think he looks quicker and sharper in everything compared to last season

    Agreed. Not sure how anyone could think he looks slower. Very sharp looking as he has been in all the pre-season games he’s played in.

    How did we manage to finish 3rd last season then with him at the heart of the defence?

    Have you looked up the statistics of Hanlon from last season?
    Someone posted them a while back and he was near the top in most defensive categories.

    he can’t organise a defence. Plus he can’t spot danger and improvise.
    Your username is very apt.

    Great start for Hibs especially after an away European fixture. Random thoughts:

    Good to see Magennis getting involved in the game and running ahead of the ball. We've really been missing this and it helped bring the attack and midfield together. Doyle-Hughes looked useful too. Magennis and D-H might give us the legs to accommodate Newell. Newell and Gogic shouldnt play in the same team.

    Nisbet looks like he's improving. Another season at Hibs would do him the world of good. I dont think he's up to leading the line for Celtic and the pressure there could really stunt his growth. If he keeps working and remains patient, a big move that will come his way.

    The transformation in Boyle as a footballer is remarkable. His penalty was beautifully struck. A huge contrast to his penalty at Hampden against Dundee Utd which went nowhere near where he was aiming and his tame won at tannadice. Has clearly worked really hard on his game.

    Murphy looks like he could be a total menace but seems to give up a wee bit easy. Could learn a lot from Boyle.

    Our defence still looks a bit soft and coughs up some easy goals. It will be important in games against St. Johnstone and Hearts where we might not score so readily that we can rely on the defence not giving up easy goals.

    I think Aberdeen are going to start the season really well and then collapse a bit when we get into autumn.

    Fans were class. Was weird that hibs dressing room was in our stand and they walked past hibs fans going in and out at HT on the stairs. I was going back to my seat and shouted “mon the hibbies” at Boyle and Nisbet. They almost shat themselves but probably motivated them to get the win tbqh.

    Thanks for inspiring the team to win the game. We would have lost otherwise.

    Gatecrasher, interesting statement to make
    Can’t agree or disagree, but football is all about fans

    I think the constant criticism of the defence and Hanlon and Porteous in particular is over the top. Yes the goals we lost today were maybe poor yet Motherwell fans will be saying they were great goals. The attacking game we play leaves us a bit exposed at the back at times but in my opinion we are lucky to have Hanlon and Porteous in there.

    Neither were responsible got the goals are we lost today
    But we need a bit more height across the team to defend set plays. Big part of football now

    It was great to finally be at a game. I thought Hibs were excellent going forward but the goals we lost were poor. Magennis was good in the middle of the park, Nisbet’s touch and movement were impressive and Boyle is unplayable at times. A superb afternoon’s entertainment 🇳🇬🇳🇬🇳🇬
