    When are the club going to act?

    5 defeats in a row in the league. Potentially looking at 7 now no Doidge or Boyle. This has to be our worst run of form since we all know when.

    Sunday was great and the manager and the players got the praise they all fully deserved but we canít go on like this.

    Iím not sitting here calling for the manager to be sacked this isnít exactly a Ross out thread but if this run continues then surely the club will have no choice but to sack him or we could be in real trouble which is a very scary thought.

    Itís also confusing because Sunday showed we can perform to a much higher level. Yes we had an awful summer window and that no doubt has a part to play in this but ultimately the players that are still here are more than good enough to get results needed.

    Potentially felt the effects of Sunday tonight, to be fair. How many times have teams had a huge performance then fine on to win the next game so close to it?

    The thing people need to realise is that games like tonight arenít the one offs. Itís games and performances like Sunday.

    Too many performances and results like tonight and not enough like Sunday.

    Something has to change.

    Yeah thatís a fair comment matty but like I said thatís now 5 on the bounce in the league and potentially looking at 7.. at what point does something change?

    Unless we lose every game until the final and the final heís not going anywhere.

    I feel like the club are fully behind Ross and to be honest rightly so after what heís achieved.

    But 5 defeats in a row in the league is indefensible. Never know we might get 6 or 4 points from the next 2 games and that takes us 6th and in a final with lots of games to go before the season end.

    Thereís not a huge gap either way and a run of form quickly changes everything.

    The club aren’t going to act and nor should they.

    Don't know what the answer is, but if we are all honest - you are right, Sunday was the one that shocked us, not tonight.

    Time is running out for JR at our club. There is still time to save our season by a change of management

    Itís our worst run of form since Butcher. If we surpass that run should the club act?

    Iíve never been the managers biggest fan. Not since he walked in the door. Last season he got away with it coz we finished 3rd but in all reality we were poor more often than we were good and the cup runs kept him ticking over.

    Personally, Iíd have sacked him after the cup final BUT he was kept on and backed in the summer (we didnít have a poor window in terms of numbers. We actually signed quite a few players). This is his mess and he needs to go. Cup final or not 5 league defeats in a row isnít good enough. Time to wake up!

    What's happened to that Top 4 record for so many months now Jack?

    With the run of games and amount of games coming up, I think he's a goner and hopefully sooner rather than later.

    Tonight's result is not that unexpected after Sundays game. The shortfalls of the summer recruitment are being exposed now unfortunately.

    The thing that again puts me off Ross is we Chuck in an opening 45 like Sunday. You think right we have cracked it and weíre back to reality with that.

    Sorry but five straight league defeats against anyone in this league is cause for concern. Any players will lift their performance in a semi final even if your not on board with the current coaching staff.

    Something isnít right, sunday wasnít and isnít papering the cracks that are showing.

    letís see where we are at the winter break. If weíre in in a serious relegation battle then, and lost the cup finalÖ yes the club should act.

    I think the club very much see Jack Ross as being virtually bulletproof for the time being. I think they pretty much accept that he was let down in the summer and is working with his hands tied until we get to January.

    Personally i think thatís being a bit kind on him, and he should be getting more out of the team than we are seeing.

    When does a run of form become the Ďnormí? Admire the optimism but I just donít see that happening to be realistic.

    The club will act in January by addressing the disaster that was the summer transfer window.

    Tonight was a game that was crying out for 2 or 3 changes after Sunday and we had almost no options to do that.

    Iím actually concerned with it becoming 8 league games

    Motherwell after rangers also.

    Itís looking bleak. Itís at the stage needs to stop the run of defeats and find a result in any fashion. Time to roll up sleeves because itís not going to be pretty.

    Shows how terrible our squad is, as soon as I seen Boyle sent off I am pretty much certain we will lose 1.0 at the weekend. Iíd bite hand off for a point

    We won't sack him while we are still above Aberdeen with games in hand.

    By January, he may be in bother.

    Unless we go from now until the January window without arresting this run he will get given more time.

    Iíd disagree with that to be fair.

    He had, Gullan, Allan, Stevenson, Gogic, dare I say it Wright with enough experience to put in a shift and supply some fresh legs to the first 11.

    100% agree

    But thatís what Ross has to work with and to freshen the 11 up after Sunday those players all have enough game time to came in and offer the squad rotation option. Donít think it would have changed the score or performance but point im making is Ross was too focused on sticking with what worked against rangers when in reality it was a totally different game tonight.

    Poor tactics, judgment, what ever you want to call it

    Looks like "Sunday was papering over the cracks" is the new "doesn't win big games".

    Scary thought, we could be well adrift in that case.

    Sunday's performance put a very temporary mask on the problems at Hibs. Tonight's result was on the cards.

    Even with a full squad we are still short of real depth, which was caused by the last transfer window.

    If they do not realise it already a few of the posters on here are in for a bumby ride given the amount of fixtures on the horizon. Our real problems won't be anywhere near getting solved until the next transfer window.

    It looks to me this season may be one where we hover around mid-table and look for success in the cups. Hopefully we do not suffer injuries to key players or we may continue to drop even further down the table.

    No way will Ross be sacked by Hibs, unless he decides he has had enough or feels he is not getting enough backing from Gordon.
